We test drive new Australian organic mineral makeup range from Megan Potter.

There's a new local mineral makeup kid on the block in Queensland, Australia, MP Cosmetics. Owned and created by professional makeup artist Megan Potter, my team at Secrets from a Beauty Insider got a little bit excited about trialling this organic, mineral based make up line. We love supporting local creators!

Our 3 fave products from the range are:

1. Megan Potter Organic & Mineral Pure Primer

makeup for mature

If you’ve read my previous post regarding primers - click here - or you’ve been to one of my classes you’ll know primers and I are not friends. #sorrynotsorry But luckily for all you oily skins out there, the Megan Potter Organic & Mineral Pure Primer is a clean product with no unnecessary nasties that will help to hydrate, mattify and smooth your skin. It is a rose water infused product making it gentle and hydrating. We likey.


Perfect for all skin types, especially combination or oily skin.


Your fingers.


After you prep your skin with sunscreen,

massage the Primer into the skin like you would moisturiser.

2. Megan Potter Mineral Foundation Powder

best foundation for older skin

I'm a cream or liquid foundation lover and generally don't endorse a "powdery" foundation finish because they grab on to crinkles and wrinkles. But I'm coming around to the world of mineral powder foundations. This little pot of genius gave our skin a really beautiful polished and radiant appearance. So cudos to you, Megan Potter (This is what happens when a pro artist is behind a brand!)


Lovers of the no-make up, make up.


A densely packed kabuki brush.


It’s a sheer build-able coverage that is super light-weight.

3. Megan Potter Mineral Blush Powder

makeup for older women

We played with “Raspberry Sorbet” a loose powder blush that is crazy bright. With little micro-shimmers this blush doubles as a pretty highlighter and is our favourite product from Megan Potter’s mineral makeup range.


All skin tones. A little goes a long way, use sparingly.


Synthetic blush brush. The fibres pick up

the pigment and distribute it more evenly.


Surprisingly sheer but highly pigmented so a little packs a punch.


Dust on to the high points of your cheekbones.

Doubles as highlighter and makes a stunning eyeshadow.

Love a multi-tasking product.

The lipstick formulation in our opinion needs some more work but we love supporting local, super women.. especially those in the beauty industry focused on your health (as well as your looks). We are wrapped to have had the opportunity to play with Megan Potter's organic mineral makeup.

Let me know if you’ve given any of these products a go, I’d love to know your thoughts! Have a product you would like us to try? Email us here.
