Of all the holiday collections, I saved bareMinerals Crystallized Full Face Collection for last. Holographic hues, explosions of iridescence, and mesmerizing shine all come together in one incredible 8-pc. FULL SIZE collection for shimmering smoky eyes, radiant cheeks, and glitzy lips guaranteed to create a lasting impression. There is even a cool keepsake holographic tin in purple/silver!
The bareMinerals Crystallized Full Face Collection includes:
- Mesmerized Liner Shadow in Dark Charcoal
- Steam Eyecolor in Metallic Silver Shimmer
- Golden Gate Radiance All-Over Face Color
- bareMinerals READY® Eyeshadow 2.0, The Magic Wand in Presto (almond satin) and Abracadabra (shimmering slate)
- Marvelous Moxie™ Lipstick in Break Away (luscious mauve)
- Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Hypnotist (holographic violet-peach)
- Lash Domination™ 10-in-1 Volumizing Mascara in Intense Black
- Double-Ended Shade and Line Brush
Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Hypnotist is most definitely the star of this light show–it’s stunning! It has an iridescent quality that changes from violet to peach to pink that unfortunately defies photography . Moxie glosses are extremely smooth and glide onto lips with a comfortable cushiony feel. They also have a vanilla scent and fragrance with a slight minty tingle I like. Hypnotist can be worn alone for a a gorgeous glisten or on top of lipsticks for added dimension and shine.
Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Break Away is a creamy mauve that is very hydrating and smooth. Marvelous Moxie lipsticks are loaded with antioxidants making them perfect for over 40 women. The Vitamins A, C, and E keep my lips feeling super soft. Richly saturated with great color payoff, these have a beautiful satin finish. They are truly among my favorite lipsticks to wear and with 18 fabulous shades you really need to try them!
The Magic Wand makes a fab holiday duo with a shimmering almond shade (Presto), and a shimmering slate shade (Abracadabra). Kinda like silver and gold–but wearable! I
really like adore bareMinerals READY eyeshadows. They are so creamy they almost feel like cream shadows. They last all the live long day, are highly pigmented and even contain anti-aging ingredients. The READY line is simply amazing; the smooth buttery texture, the incredible lasting power and the lovely finishes are unbeatable! The shimmer is quite refined and ideal for women over 40!
Lash Domination Mascara has an exclusive ProTwist180™ Wand that is spiraled 180 degrees to curve around lashes and coat from all angles with intense black color. While initially I wasn’t sure about this mascara, I find myself constantly reaching for it and after a few weeks, I’m loving it! The bristles do a great job of separating lashes and the formula adds lot of length too. It doesn’t smudge or flake and holds a curl. I also like to layer lash domination over Flawless Definition mascara for a va-va-voom look.
Steam is one of the loose pigments in the collection. It’s an icy silver/white shade, and quite bright. It makes a wonderful highlight shade for the The Magic Show Duo.
The liner eyeshadow Mesmerized, is extremely pigmented, and works perfectly with the included brush. Mesmerized is not quite black, but more of a dark charcoal with slight shimmer, a color we over 40’s can appreciate for it’s lack of harshness. The included brush is all kinds of awesome sauce. The liner end is very stiff making it easy-peasy to apply the powder and manipulate. I’m kind of a klutz with liquid liners so this loose powder option is perfect for me. The other side of the brush is perfect for smudging.
All-Over Face Color in Golden Gate Radiance is a bit too much color to wear as a bronzer on my pale skin, I do like it for use a blush though. I do prefer the READY pressed blushes but this shade is nice peach with a touch of shimmer.
Total look using everything from the Crystalized collection:
Bottom Line: bareMinerals Crystalized Full Face Collection is a lovely collection and a holiday must have! The bareMinerals quality is definitely there and all the colors are well coordinated. It was an awesome deal at the regular price of $54 (value of $146) but wait…there’s more! Good news beauties, you can now find it on sale for only $38 at Sephora!
