BareMinerals Beauty Insider Box

This post is dedicated to a 500 point perk I recently redeemed from bareminerals. Even though the perk may not still be available, I figured since the products are available year round, this could still be helpful.

Prime Time Original Foundation Primer ($31 CAD) is a clear silicone primer (that reminds me a lot of the Smashbox primers). This is a nice primer to fill in pores, smooth the skin and is moisturizing. I can see this working best for dry to normal skins, oily skins may find this too moisturizing (or greasy/ slippery feeling). For me, this is beauty swatched approved.

Mineral Veil ($27 CAD) Original is a setting powder that really helps blurs the look of pores and lines  (you can see the finish in the image below. The hand at the top is with product blended out). This powder does not add much coverage and although this is marketed to be transparent I see this going ashy on deeper skin tones or leaving behind a dark cast on very fair skin tones. There are alternate shades in this range if you do feel like this may not blend well into your skin. I do like this powder so for me, it’s beauty swatched approved

Full Flawless Face Brush ($35 CAD) is a dense, ronded brush perfect for applying.. well, anything really. The bristles are soft but dense enough to apply product precisely and blend out powders. I like the thickness of it and the short handle makes this perfect for traveling. Not much more to say about this, despite it being beauty swatched approved

Lash Domination Mascara ($24.50) is an interesting mascara: the bristles seem ‘normal’ but are twisted, which helps to separate lashes as I comb the wand up. I find that this does thicken up my lashes while separating them and the colour is quite black. Overall nice mascara (better when opened and slightly dry like most mascaras) and is beauty swatched approved.

Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor ($23 CAD) in Infamous is a warm light pink with hints of mauve. The product comes out almost like a mouse and applies with opaque coverage in one swipe. It is one of the most moisturizing matte lip colours I own and I do enjoy it. This is beauty swatched approved.
