bareMinerals Tutorial Kits Review

Hey guys right today im going to do a review on some new products in the bareMinerals tutorials kits.

Ive got 2 different ones to review today and here they are -

 The Smokey eye kit - This kit containes 2 x 0.57g eyeshadows

                                                                                 1 x double ended brush

The eyeshadow colours are - skyline a sultry grey violet which is a great contour colour to achive that sexy smokey eye.

                                                           - celestine a beautiful shimmery ivory colour its light reflecting which adds a light-reflecting shimmer to brighten the look and open up the eye.

The double ended  brush is a must have for your collection one end distributes great colour while the other end is great for buffing the colours together and soften your look.

Here is a swatch of the colours there is no base underneath the colours so you can see the true pigmentation of the colours.  

   The colour on the left is skyline and on the right is celestine.

   I think this is a lovely kit espically for a beginner as you get all the instustions for day and night time looks on the inside of the box. The only thing i wish the kit contained was maybe a small eyeliner or a small primer of some sort, i personally love primer especially for loose pigment eyeshadows but you guys might be different. The Kit retails fot £30.00 which is definitly good value for money as the eyeshadows are full size.

The second kit is the bareMinerals Get cheeky kit

This kit contains 1 x blush in colour Lovely

                                   1 x Pure radiance all over face colour

                                   1 x double-ended seamless blending blush brush

This kit is lovely for creating a lovely "fresh as a daisy" look if you want to achive that freshley pinched cheeks look this is definitly the kit for you.

The Blush in colour Lovely is a warm shimmery pink that adds a beautiful youthfull glow to your complexion.

Pure Radiance is an all over face colour which adds a light fresh lumionous glow to the skin and has a light peachy undertone to gently warm up the skin too.

Double-ended seamless blending blush brush is also a great tool for your collection, the synthetic end of the brush will sculpture the cheekbones and add definition to the face, while the fluffy end of the brush will buff the product in the skin making it completly flawless on the skin.

Here is a swatch of the 2 products on the left is Pure Radiance all over face colour and the left is lovely blush

I really like the colour of the blush in this kit im not to keen on the all over face product just beaucause i find it too shimmery and i find it dosnt photograph great either which isnt such a concern for most people i just dont like to look too shiney but hey thats my oppinion :-) but has just been informed by my sister in law (who worked for bare minerals) that if you do find it too shimmery use it as a highlighter under the brows or on the cheekbones great tip :-) thanks Linz lol x

These kits retail for about £30.00 each you can buy them at selected Debenhmas stores but if you happen to live in the Ipswich area pop into Baiss&Co hairdressers as we carry selected bareMinerals products

Take care guys
