bareMinerals Glow all the Way – first impressions

After admiring all the gorgeous collections bareMinerals has to offer, and I stumbled across the ‘Glow All the Way’ set I just new I had to buy it. So today I wanted to share with you my first impressions, so if you fancy a bit of beauty talk; get yourself comfy! I figured that seeming as I’m so in love with this brand, it’s about time I dedicated a long blog post on it for you all.

I came across bareMinerals makeup almost two years ago now, and ever since I first used it I fell in love with their products. They’re high quality, gentle to my skin, and give me a natural glam look. I decided to go for this set as my next addition to my collection of their makeup, as I wanted to add more pinky, shimmery tones into my face.

 One of the many things I love about this brand, is that their makeup is carefully wrapped in tissue paper which really makes it more exciting to open. And the packaging of the products themselves is super simple and attractive. The ‘Glow All the Way’ set includes four items:

1) Mineral Veil Finishing Powder

2) Mini Well-Rested face & eye brightener

3) Rose Radiance All-Over Face Colour

4) Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss – Rebel

 Rose Radiance All-Over Face Colour: First things first, I love that this is packaged in the same way as the mineral veil, and powder concealers and foundations; meaning that I still use the same swirl, tap and buffing motion when applying. I think the colour of this is absolutely gorgeous, so shimmery, which will be perfect for adding more glow and shimmer into my face. I don’t normally like to go for overly shimmery products with me having olily skin, but my first impression of this is that it strives the right balance. This would be applied with my bareMinerals flawless face brush; which I find is good quality, and super soft.

Well-rested face & eye brightener: this brightener is actually the first I have ever tried out from bareminerals; as I first applied it I was expecting it to feel heavy and sticky, but I was pleasantly surprised to find it’s super light and a lot brighter than I had anticipated. This compliments the gorgeous shade of the rose face colour, fitting perfectly just above my cheekbones, and underneath my eye area to really brighten up my face. And when you’ve had a late night, a good quality brightener is such a savoir in the morning.

Mineral Veil Finishing Powder: This product isn’t new to me, but it certainly is a favourite. This powder is my go-to for finishing off my face, it adds a final matte finish to my face, and helps keep my makeup lasting longer. I know that sounds a bit cliche, but I honestly notice a difference when do wear it; when I don’t my makeup tends to slip of my face sooner with me having oily skin.

Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss – shade Rebel: the last time I got a bareminerals order I actually got this lipgloss in a mini sample version as a side-gift to my order, and I loved it so much I had to order it in full size as part of this collection. For me, this lipgloss is perfect for nigh-outs because its super long lasting; not only the colour of it but also the shine. It also has a super yummy taste and smell. The only thing I’m not to keen on about it is how sticky it  is, which makes it even more of a faff when you head out on a windy day… hair in lips (agh).

Another thing which I just think is lovely of bareminerals, is that when I ordered this set I was given the chance to select two sample products, out of a number of options which were pretty wide ranging. I chose to go for the Lash Domination volumizing mascara, and the purely nourishing moisturiser.

Purely Nourishing Moisturiser: ‘with rare minerals’. I’ve never owned a moisuriser from this brand, so I thought it would be a good idea to try one out as a sample to see whether it was worth investing in a full size one. This moisturiser is so hydrating and smells so fresh, which I feel as though is just what I need throughout these cold winter months. Despite having oily skin, it really drys up in the cold, and without proper moisturisation it becomes even oilier… not what anyone wants.

Lash Domination volumizing mascara: I usually go for the flawless definition mascara from bareminerals, which really lengthens and curls my lashes, but I really like how thick and defined this mascara makes them. After trying this sample I feel as though this one would be better for night outs, and more dramatic looks, whereas the flawless definition for more natural glam looks. This mascara is certainly of the same high standard.

So there we go, a sneak peak inside the bareMinerals Glow All the Way set, along with the two sample pieces I chose as an extra. I hope that you all enjoyed this post, and let me know in the comments products from bareMinerals you’v tried out and love.
