Happy Wednesday everyone!
The past view beauty posts I uploaded, a lot of you mentioned that you have never heard of the brands I was featuring, which made me realise how many of my readers are international. Well there certainly won’t be any confusion with this brand! I recently got my hands on some new Bare Minerals products, a brand I’ve never tried before and let me tell you I am extremely impressed!
The thing that impressed me the most was the variety of foundation shades for dark skin. Let’s face it a lot of beauty brands still do not produce colour variations for dark skin (which is why I always stick to MAC) so when I received not one but two powder foundations I was very overwhelmed to say the least.
Original SPF 15 Foundation
I’m gonna be honest and say I was quite sceptical about this foundation as I simply hate loose powder. I’ve always found it messy, uncontrollable and difficult to apply. Unfortunately this was no different, I’ve been using it for a few days and still cannot get to grips with it. Such a shame because I love using mineral based foundations, the colour is perfect and the finish looks flawless. If you’re a fan of loose powders than this is definitely one for you!
The Stroke of Light eye brightener is officially my new favourite under eye concealer! The application is extremely easy, it glides on to the skin like butter. The colour is perfect and has an orange undertone, which diffuses dark circles. The Bareskin Complete Coverage Serum concealer is a great concealer for covering up skin imperfections as well as for concealing under eye circles. Two amazing concealers to try!
The award for best primer goes to….Blemish Remedy Mattifying Prep Gel! This is seriously the best primer I’ve ever used and is the stand out product within the entire collection! It’s a gel based primer, which is so incredibly soft and easy to apply. Best of all it mattifys your skin, leaving your make-up looking flawless and non-greasy. Don’t get me wrong, if you prefer a dewy finish then this product definitely isn’t for you. But personally I love a good matte finish, which is often difficult to obtain so this product is literally a god send!
The Full Flawless Application brush is the perfect match for the Original SPF 15 foundation but can also be used to apply other products such as pressed powders and blush. I’ll be using it to apply powder blushes.
The Pop of Passion Lip Oil Balm is going to become my favourite go-to lip product for spring. The colour is absolutely gorgeous but best of all it’s a lip oil, which means its hydrating and nourishing on your lips. If you’re looking for some new lip products, I would highly recommend this product, plus it’s available in 8 fabulous shades!
Will you be trying Bare Minerals cosmetics this season?
