Today I’ve got the awesome Bare Minerals Get Started Kit in Medium to show you! Now if you’re new to Bare Minerals I’ll tell you a bit about the brand (of you’re familiar please feel free to skip this part!)
bareMinerals products are based on, you guessed it, minerals. Minerals provide the basis for all their products, and offer a whole range of benefits to the user. Every mineral in our proprietary formulations is carefully selected to deliver proven results. bareMinerals Makeup utilizes naturally derived minerals to give you exceptional long-lasting coverage, breathable lightweight wear, rich pigmentation with creamy blendability, and broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection. Best of all, we created all of our mineral formulas to work together in harmony to improve your complexion instantly and over time, day and night.
The Get Started Kit includes everything you need for complexion perfection –
- bareMinerals Original SPF 15 Foundation in Medium C25 and Medium Beige N20, size: 2g each
- Original Mineral Veil finishing powder, size: 2g
- Prime Time Foundation Primer, size: 15ml
- Warmth All-Over Face Color, size: 1.5g
- Full Flawless Face Brush
- Flawless Application Face Brush
- Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush
- Get Started Kit guide: shows you how to Swirl, Tap, Buff® your way back to the skin you were born with.
So basically this kit includes everything you need for a gorgeous flawless look! And it really couldn’t be easier to use…
Firstly you massage the primer into your skin, allow this to set then apply the foundation. You’re given two brushes for different finishes; the Full Flawless Face Brush gives medium to full coverage, and the Flawless Application Face Brush gives light to medium coverage as it has softer bristles. Buff the foundation into the skin as required then apply the Warmth All-Over Face Colour where you would usually highlight, then finish off with the Mineral Veil Finishing Powder – this is a translucent powder that gives a soft focus finish to your look.
I love that you have everything in this kit that you need to get a fresh looking, flawless base. Also I think it’s great that they’ve included two foundation colours so you can mix and match. My preconceptions of bareMinerals were that the products would completely dry out my already dry skin – I tend to stay away from powders for this reason. But I couldn’t be more wrong! This stuff is like magic! It doesn’t dry the skin at all (one of the reasons being there is no talc in the products) and the fact that you only need tiniest amount of foundation to get full coverage just amazes me!
I’d highly recommend this kit as being perfect for your summer foundation routine. My Dior Hydralife BB cream is fantastic but it can feel heavy which is not really what you want as the weather heats up! I just need a flawless look without feeling caked in makeup! These bareMinerals products feel so light, you don’t even feel like your wearing a foundation at all!
It’s also worth mentioning this kit includes products worth an individual total of £119, but has a RRP of just £50, oh and it only actually costs £39 from Chemist Direct, what a bargain!
I’d love to hear what you think, and if you’ve tried bareMinerals before?
