A Face of bareMinerals

[ad contains gifted products] I posted a reel of me using a face of bareMinerals on my instagram (you can watch it here) and I thought I'd do a blog post as well as there are a couple of new exciting bits in my bareMinerals collection that I thought I'd share my thoughts on too and how I find the best way to use some of the products! 

bareMinerals Hydrating Foundation Stick *

Apart from the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue I've not actually tried any other bareMinerals foundations. I've always wanted to try a foundation stick, easy and compact, perfect for travelling, but I have always found them really thick, and horrific for dry skin, where they look instantly patchy. 

bareMinerals Original Liquid Mineral Concealer*

If you're looking for a high coverage concealer this is definitely one. I first hadn't realised when I used it, just how thick it was and went a bit too overboard with it. This concealer only needs light touches in your key under-eye area (or on the blemishes) for a full effect. I love using this for under my eyes and on any spots. I find the best way to apply this concealer is either with your fingers and blend it in, or a I also like to use the bareMinerals Concealer brush as well to apply it. 

bareMinerals Gen Nude Blonzer 'Kiss of Copper'*

I can't tell you how excited I am to have one of these in my collection. The blonzer products were originally limited edition only, but in the fabulous news that 2022 has brought us, these are now part of the main collection. The blonzers are a bronzer/blush hybrid, offering an effortless flush of colour to your cheeks and face with a slight sheen. The shade I have here Kiss of Copper which is a gorgeous warm-toned shade. Using a contour or a blush brush, I apply this to the apples of my cheeks upwards to my ears and also a bit on my temples too. I can't tell you how buttery this formula is and how it just glides onto the face. Kiss of Pink and Kiss of Coral are next on my list! 

bareMinerals Strength & Lengthen EyeBrow Gel*

If you're someone who used to hack at their eyebrows when they were younger, I call for you to try this product. The Strength and Lengthen range at bareMinerals includes a serum in their products that aims to build and restore your natural brows/lashes etc. I own the clear brow gel and not only does this leave my brows looking fluffy and defined all day long, I have noticed that my brows grow back thicker and fuller than ever before. My one advice is that I would be quite gentle with the packaging, as quite a bit of product comes out on the brush, so I try and be quite gentle when pulling the brush out in order to lessen the amount of product on the bristles. 

bareMinerals Gen Nude Eyelid and Eyeshadow Primer*

Now I have to admit, I. am awful at remembering to prime my eyeshadow, and most of the time that I use a powder eyeshadow,  I tend to use a cream shadow underneath anyways that 'acts' as a primer. However, when I do remember, I love reaching for this as it makes my eyelids feel so incredibly soft and leave such a nice even base to add eyeshadow on top of. They also have some variety in different shades as well for the primer. 

bareMinerals Gen Nude Metallic Liquid Eyes* 

I've talked about these metallic liquid shadows all the time on my blog, but I absolutely adore using these undernearth any of my powder eyeshadows. They not only add a bit of metallic sheen to my shadows, but they work so well undernearth a shadow too. 

bareMinerals eyeshadow palettes

I have quite a few bareMinerals eyeshadow palettes including the Gen Nude ones which are some of my most holy grail, but recently I've been trying out and using the brand new bareMinerals Mineralist Eyeshadow Palette - UltraNatural* and not only does this palette have gorgeous shades (my favourites being 'Shell' and 'Sandstone') but the ethics around the palette are amazing. The palette is eco-friendly with sustainable packaging and is fully recyclable which I think is just incredible. Also it's incredibly lightweight as well. I would have loved a mirror on this palette like the rest of the bareMinerals palettes come with, but from a sustainability point of view, this was obviously why it wasn't included. 

bareMinerals Mineralist Lasting Eyeliner*

I usually stick to my one good and trusty Revlon £5.99 eyeliner, mainly because I despise either pencil or hard khol liners which is what I can only really ever find in the drugstore, but when I opened this eyeliner up I was so excited that it was. Seeing as I tight-line only I go through a lot of eyeliner in my life, so it is a bit spennier than I usually pay for at £18. But I have to say this absolutely glides onto my tight-line and what I love is the array of different fun shades they have. To note though, this doesn't have a smudger, but I actually tend to either take mine off my liners or chuck them away as, like I said, I really only wear tight-line eyeliner. 

bareMinerals Gloss Balm*

I think these Gloss balms probably sit as my second ever favourite bareMinerals products. I have three of the shades; Clarity, Ingenuity & Zen. These have replaced all my glosses as well as my top favourite, and I've pretty much already used up Clarity completely after only having it for 5 months. They make my lips look so completely juicy, full and glossy but whilst still keeping them feeling hydrated and moisturised. I love wearing both Ingenuity & Zen on their own for a bit of light colour, or pairing them with a lipstick, and Clarity is my favourite to wear with harsher lipsticks that I'm looking to lighten up or de-mattify!
