bareMinerals In a New Light 5-pc Color Collection
Ehh..not for me.
I bought this because I thought it looked great on tv. Well, maybe it's just my skin tone, I don't know....but the moxie was too light and TOO sticky....hair kept getting stuck in it. I didn't notice any difference with this well rested pen....the blush wasn't shimmery and the shadow was just ok. The brush was good....but not enough to keep the kit. Returned it.
By the way----you DO NOT have to use QVC's return label for these lighter items....it's cheaper to just go to the post office and mail it there....just make sure you get tracking---just in case.
Amazing "go to" pulled together bright eyed look
I love this kit and I do feel it is a good value so please ignore the negative reviews and listen to mine before you make a decision. Overall if you want a "go to" look for simple every day this could be it!
First let me say that I am a fair skinned girl. I burn easily in the sun and have light brown hair. I am 35 but am content to make people think I'm 25 hence this set has interested me. I have been a BE user since 2003 and while I am not a collector or totally brand loyal - I do use other makeup lines - but I do believe in the quality of BE products.
Ok now on to this set: The eye color is my favorite piece. It brings your tone and color to a bright and eye opening place WITHOUT SHIMMER OR GLITTER -yippee - ti's the perfect "naked" eye look... I put this on all over and with mascara - hello flirty youthful eyes!
Now the blush is great just flush without too much color and yet there are those flecks of "diamonds" in here. This keeps it a "lifted" color and does seem to last all day on me on top of the ready or loose foundation.
The moxie is my favorite for just a touch of shine or I put it on over a lip liner for more depth.
I can't say I love the well reseted pen - I like the powder version more but this is okay. I use it on my nose and in that spot below my eyebrow arch to bring them up a bit. It seems clear at least and not glittery.
And the brush is soft and because it's double ended it's all you need to use these particular products. I'm not a huge fan of double ended brushes but this is quality - soft and nice.
Try this if you're looking for a brightness without glitter and a pulled together effortless look.
This is the first bad review I've even done for Bare Minerals. I think this collection is a waste of money. A total waste. The lip gloss is so light it is a joke, the brush is sort of ok, the blush is almost ok, the under eye stuff does nothing. Save your money.
Great little set!
I bought this set after a makeup artist friend of mine recommended BE's "Well Rested" concealer. I hadn't tried it before and thought this was a good deal. I really like it! The concealer works great over my perpetual dark circles ~ it soaks right in, covers nicely and doesn't look at all like I've used any cover up. I've used the eye shadow quite often since I got the set and it not only stays put, but it also works well with my other shadows. The all-over face cover is nice for an extra boost of color as well as doubling as a good blush. The gloss is great, not necessarily my color, but I use a little bit over my lipstick for some sparkle. I definitely recommend this set!
Another great Bare Minerals collection
I love Bare Minerals so when I saw this II had to have it. Well worth the money with the brushes and everything you get. I love the brightener pen, it helps with my dark circles but does not totally cover them. Since I have not found anything that does I am satisfied. Love love love the blush brightener. Of course being a bare minerals product this goes on flawlessly and evenly. I can control the amount of color and it has made my face look younger. Would I buy this again, in a heatbeat!
Worth it for the Well Rested
Bought this kit for fun - the Well Rested was a great surprise. I'm very fair and this serves as a perfect highlighter - moisturizing, did not crack or crease - perfect for me. The other products are just a bonus.
bare minerals in a new light color collection
don't waste your time and money on this kit. I did and now having to send it back for
$6.95. Wish qvc would check on these items before selling it.
The gloss was the worse I have ever tried.
brightener came out in clumps
blush was too red
brush was no good
beside this it would of been great
Great products, this is just about the only makeup I will wear. Never been disappointed.
I ordered this kit mostly for the Well rested under eye brightener. If I was happy with it, then the rest of the kit would be a bonus.... well I have to agree with some of the other reviewers below. the wellrested is too sheer to work. I know it has those light reflectors but I need more than that. I love Moxie and the one in this kit is very ethereal. I can not wear it alone, but it does look nice over a more intense shaded lipstick.the eye shadow was very ethereal too. I liked it but not enough ....the all over face color does not work all over the face...so misleading...should be marketed as a blush or a rosey colored bronzer.... needless to say the kit is OK but for me not worth the money. I am all about a good value.
Fun to Try!
I'm happy to have the brush included in the set - which is versatile. The brush really "ups" the value of the kit. I have found value in the eye brightener. I believe it enhances my eyes and other parts of my face. The eye shadow works well for me, too. However, the rose cheek color goes on way too dark - and I look like a kewpie doll. The lip gloss is ok...but only if I use it in conjunction with a darker colored lipstick.
not for me
I have fair/light skin w/ red undertones. The wellrested did nothing for me. Put it around my eyes and couldn't see a difference. I LOVE the original wellrested w/ concealer brush though. The 2 ended brush broke right away. Did not like the eye color and the rose didn't look nice on my face. I did like the lip gloss color.. very pretty!, BUT I didn't like that my hair kept sticking to my lips. Too sticky. Kit is going back unfortunately.
Applicator A Big Miss
I have used only bareMinerals for a few years, and generally love the products. I was eager to try the Well Rested and this set looked good to me. I still have not tried Well Rested because I cannot get any product out of the stupid pen! I suggest the company keep delivery systems simple.
