Review: bareMinerals All The Faves

IMG_6262

Sorry for not posting yesterday but with Thanksgiving being right around the corner I am a tad bit busier and won’t get around to posting as often as I want. Believe it or not I have never tried any bareMineral products except a small sample size of their SPF15 Matte foundation that I received a long time ago. I have heard great things about this brand and have never really given it a chance. So I decide that after seeing this kit in Ulta I had to take the plunge and buy it. I will tell you what I think about each product incase you are also a newbie to bareMinerals and want to pick it up.

Here is what is in this kit:

Prime Time Original Foundation Primer
. this preps the skin for flawless foundation application while smoothing away dryness, fine lines and uneven textures.
-I don’t think this is anything really unique. I have tried many other primers in hope that one would help my foundation last longer given that my skin is super oily. I wouldn’t run out and buy this it has the same consistency as the E.L.F Mineral primer, Lancome LA BASE PRO and Smashbox photo finish primer.

Prime Time Eyelid Primer
.Smooth, sheer base maximizes the color intensity and staying power of any eye color while minimizing creasing and fading.
-I really enjoyed this primer again just like the foundation primer I wouldn’t say this is a must. It kept my eyeshadow on and crease free for 8+ hours, but there are similar and less expensive option out there I enjoy more.

Mineral Veil Finishing Powder
.The ultimate, translucent finishing touch to your makeup, it absorbs oil and minimizes the appearance of fine line and pores.
-I have been really enjoying this finishing powder under my eyes it creates a beautiful finish on top of my concelar and it seems to brighten up my eyes.

Bareminerals Ready Eyeshadow 2.0
.Vivid, universally wearable shades of brown sugar and brown truffle last up to 12 hours.
-This eyeshadow duo is absolutely beautiful. I played around with it and created a beautiful party look perfect for the holidays. I also wore this out on a regular work day and it wasn’t too dramatic. These eye shadows are super pigmented and blend very easily. I absolutely love them. Possible new favorite duo.

Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara
.The ultimate 10-in-1 volumizing, lengthening, thickening, separating and long-wearing mascara.
-This mascara is what I call a medium spectrum mascara it is not a wet nor dry formula it’s in the middle. It provide my lashes with lots of volume but no length (I have quite a bit of length naturally). The only down side is that it does smudge on my lower lash lines thanks to skin being oily.

Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Get Ready
.Creamy, super-saturated warm, rosy pink glides on with a rich satin finish that works whatever the occasion.
-This is a beautiful dark pink lip perfect for a dark eye look if you aren’t a fan of a red lip. The staying power isn’t the most amazing thing in the world. If you eat and drink the lipstick isn’t going to stick on your lips. I do have to admit this is an absolutely stunning color for medium skin tones.

Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Sparkplug
.Luscious, dusty pink pearl shade slips on satiny-smooth with nonstop glistening shine.
-This lipgloss can be paired with the moxie lipstick that is provided in this set, it is a bit dark compared to the lipstick color, but they still looks beautiful. This can also be worn on it’s own for a beautiful glossy lip with a pack of color. These glosses aren’t sticky and aren’t heavy.

I am so excited to continue to use these products. I am really happy I decided to pick this set up and finally try some of bareMineral products.

Do you have any favorite bareMineral product? Any recommendations?
