Oh bareMinerals. You are slowly converting the full coverage foundation lover to a life of natural, glowing skin. Why are you doing this to me? Well, first of all is it may have something to do with the products that are reaching my beauty stash. There’s been the Blemish Remedy Mineral Foundation, and the Pure Transformation Night Treatment that have worked together day and night to let my skin breath whilst giving it a new lease of life and glowing radiance as well as the Get Started kit which has transformed my ‘off duty’ face. The latest kit from bareMinerals has hit QVC, and although the introductory offer has since passed, the kit is still an excellent value for the amount of products that you get. Treat yourself to a bareMinerals Beauty Upgrade with the newest products and a special bareMinerals exclusive.
The bareMinerals Beauty Update is a great set for those who are looking to expand their bareMinerals collections, or those who are new to the brand and looking to try the benefits from mineral foundations. The box contains eight bareMinerals products including make up and tools to help create that coveted, natural look.
1 x Original SPF15 Foundation (8g) in a choice of: Fair, Fairly Light, Light, Medium, Medium Beige, Medium Tan, Tan, Golden Dark or Medium Dark. The powder is so lightweight that it took me a few attempts to build up the coverage that I was happy with but the overall finish is a flawless, yet radiant look. I first tried this in Medium in the bareMinerals Get Started Kit.
1 x Prep Step Moisture Set Radiant Prep Cream (40ml) Created especially for QVC, the primer is creamier than the Prime Time primer and I’ve been wearing it alone for a glowy base and under my usual foundation as it the illuminating pearl within the cream gives a lovely glow. Any foundation that is worn over Prep Step holds really well and lasts all day.
1 x Concealer SPF20 (2g) in a choice of corresponding shades to match your foundation: Bisque, Summer Bisque, Honey Bisque or Dark Bisque. It’s surprising just how much coverage this powder foundation gives.
1 x Hydrating Mineral Veil Finishing Powder (6g) I love Veil, and I use this often as a finishing powder as it blurs out the skin and leaves a soft focus finish
1 x Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara with Petite Precision Brush (8.5ml) in Intense Black – Exclusive to QVC until it’s launch in April, the small brush helps latch on to the smallest of lashes. I find it to be brilliant for the lower lash line.
1 x Pop of Passion Lip-Oil Balm (3.1g) in Blushing Passion. Inspired by the Pantone colour of the Year Rose Quartz, the balm is intensely hydrating. It doesn’t show up as a colour on my lips however for sheer moisture alone, its a make up bag must have.
1 x Flawless Face Brush – A natural fibre brush designed to be used with the foundation and veil, it makes application really easy. My only downside is that it sheds, so I do tend to use a different brush for my face.
1 x Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush – Perfect to use with the concealer, the tapered end allows for precision application.
The set is just £56 on QVC and not only is it a great deal, but you are also getting to try two exclusive products before they hit the market. Have you tried any of the bareMinerals products? What are you looking forward to trying from the bareMinerals Beauty Update?
