Ever since I was a little girl I have been fascinated by all things beauty. I have pictures (hidden away of course) of lipstick smeared all over myself & maybe one day I will have to have my mom pull out that photo & share it on the blog .. but no promises! ha Now this love or should I say obsession with makeup can be blamed on my Great Grandmother + Mom. They introduced me to Estee Lauder at a very young age and because of that, I would say that my beauty cabinet has more products then I know what to do with.
When I add new products to my ever growing collection I don't waste any time trying them out. So when these bareMinerals products arrived on my doorstep in beautiful packaging, I did just the same. I immediately started adding these products to my daily routine. They have quickly become new favorites of mine & I wanted to share why:
When I first started using the bareSkin brightening serum foundation I absolutely DID NOT like it. It felt super thick to me & made my face look cakey. Then I realized that I was using WAY too much & I wasn't using the handy dandy brush that came with it. Once I adjusted the amount of was using & the technique, I fell in love ... just like everyone else. The product contains no oil & goes on super thin. AMAZINGNESS!
Just the packing alone made me smile. The blush tones & gold casing ... oh my! This has to be one of my favorite products hands down. The three shades add the perfect amount of radiance to my cheek bones that is natural & not too over powering. You can use each shade individually or mix them together for a more dramatic look. I do whatever my heart desires that day! A must have & it is limited edition!
This palette really is full of Power Neutrals. There is a great mixture of shimmer & matte shades, which is the perfect palette in my opinion. They have great pigmentation & last most of the day, especially if you use the bareMinerals Prime Time eye primer. Please add this Power Neutrals Palette to your collection.
Gold anything is pretty in my eyes, but this itty bitty mineral veil is even cuter in person. I wouldn't say that this product is my favorite, because I thought there would be more of a glow but it is nice to have in your purse when you need a little touch up under the eyes or cheek bones.
I have been a fan of the Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss for awhile now. So when I received a few extra colors to try I was one happy girl. Life of the Party is the perfect shade of pink & goes nicely over any shade of lipstick to add a quick shine. I would definitely say they are a tad bit sticky (in my opinion), but they do last a good while ... even after sipping your hot coffee.
Even though I am a mascara girl, I am also a blush + bronzer girl. I have to have some color on my cheeks ... even during the summer. This buildable blush is incredible. It has great color & actually lasts 8 hours (as long as you are doing a Barre class ha!). Some of my other favorites are The Faux Pas + The One.
As you know, I am a mascara snob. I own way too many mascaras & change them up daily. This mascara is quite the contender with some of my other favorites as seen here. It lengthens, separates & volumizes with each additional layer. Easy to take off & doesn't flake throughout the day.
The Marvelous Moxie Lipstick has great coverage & great moisture all in one tube. If you add a lipliner beforehand it makes the shade pop. & if you want more of a shine, add a lipgloss. There are so many shades to choose from, which I love. Fly High + Lead The Way have been on heavy rotation these last few weeks. A must have for your lipstick collection.
