As a member of The Beauty Spotlight Team, it’s my turn to chat about my favorites so here goes!
Truthfully, I didn’t pay much attention to bareMinerals until a few years ago. I was never a big fan of loose shadows and then they introduced the READY line and everything changed for me. My mere dalliance with bareMinerals turned into a raging love affair. The READY line now includes foundation, bronzer, blush, eyeshadow and more! The formula is excellent: the finely milled texture is velvety smooth, long-lasting and has great pigmentation. Because of my recommendations my daughter wears nothing but bareMinerals powder foundation and my cousin is hooked on bareSkin foundation. And a HUGE bonus, this line is perfect for over 40 ladies! My passion continues to burn bright!
GEN NUDE Collection – Earlier this year, bareMinerals introduced the GEN NUDE collection, a new line of lipsticks, glosses and liners with 60 shades and 4 different finishes! If you thought you couldn’t do nudes, think again because there is sure to be something flattering in this extensive line. Whether is beige, brown, peach, pink, or mauve, there’s a million ways to go nude! The Radiant lipsticks are creamy, moisturizing and glide on lips with a demi-shine finish and medium coverage. The GEN NUDE Matte Liquid Lipcolor has a full coverage, long wearing formula, cream to matte finish. These are fabulous–one of the few mattes I can actually wear. These are very lightweight and non-sticky–most matte lip colors I’ve tried are very thick so these are a delight! Read my full review on the collection here.
READY Blush – Powered by bareMinerals proprietary SeaNutritive Mineral Complex with antioxidants and cold-pressed camellia oil, the velvety smooth formula delivers a beautiful, natural flush. Whether matte or shimmer, the shades are long-wearing and blends easily. By long-wearing I mean 8 hours, beauties! My favorites are The Aphroisiac, a peachy coral, The Natural High, a golden peach and The Faux Pas, a bright, happy pink. Available in 8 shades.
The Natural High & The Aphroisiac
READY Eyeshadow – Available in duos (2.0), quads (4.0) and palettes, these are some of the best eyeshadows on the market. Add to that the affordable prices–$21 for duos and $30 for quads, bareMinerals READY eyeshadows cannot be beat! The texture is soft, smooth, and easily blendable. And the colors…oh the colors! The shades are vivid, pigment-packed color that lasts up to 12 hours. Again, formulated with SeaNutritive Mineral Complex, it delivers skin-nourishing benefits including reduced appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and puffiness plus boosted moisture levels.
Duos are available in 13 shades. The Epiphany is my all-time fav; one side is a shimmery brown sugar and the other is a matte truffle brown.
Lash Domination Revamped Volumizing Mascara – has an exclusive ProTwist180™ Wand that is spiraled 180 degrees to curve around lashes and coat from all angles with intense black color. 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. New and improved with superior smudge resistance. Powered by nourishing minerals and quinoa protein complex. What more could a temptress ask for?
I saved the best for last! bareMinerals has THE BEST kits ever and not just during the holidays! I’ve purchased many, many kits over the years that I still use and I love giving them as gifts too.
