Hey everyone:] I'm back today with a small haul. I picked up some Bare Minerals products from Ulta a few days ago so I thought I would share! I generally like everything from Bare Minerals. It was my first "big girl" foundation and I still use it time to time. I own many of their products and i'm a frequent buyer of BM!
The reason I went to Ulta was originally just to get this moisturizer. It is the "ADVANCED PROTECTION SPF 20 MOISTURIZER." This will be my third one that I have purchased, but the first full size! It's 30.00 for 1.7oz and this time I also decided to get the moisturizer with the SPF 20 in it, beings it is pretty much summer 24-7 where I live.
This line of moisturizers has one for every skin type. I get the one for combination. They also come with tint or without. I get it without. The scent is very subtle, natural, and almost herbal like, but very hard to notice. The texture is extremely lightweight and non-greasy. It does take about 2 minutes for it to absorb into the skin. As far as packaging..i'm all for it. It has a pump and I love pumps.
The brand states that this moisturizer is supposed to reveal brighter, smoother, younger looking skin. It's also supposed to help reduce the appearence of fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores. I can't speak for all of those but it does give your skin a nice radiant glow when worn alone, and def. helps with reducing pore size. It has been my favorite moisturizer for months now.
Next I checked out their newest Ready Eyeshadow Quads, and I have a TON of their original loose shadows but none of the solids so this was my first. With Autumn in my mind, I saw this quad called "The Happy Place" and thought it was perfect. The quads go for 30.00$ and their duos are 20.00$
The packaging is very similar to Nars. It's the rubberized plastic. Very sleek and cute, but can be kind of hard to clean.
Peace-semi-matte peachy/beige color.
Imagine- copper with a lot of orange in it. it is also the most shimmery out the bunch.
Exhale- matte, cool brown.
Euphoria- this one is my favorite! it is a GORGEOUS burgandy color.
(From Left to Right- Peace, Imagine, Exhale, Euphoria)
all the colors blend easily and the quality is really nice. I will def. have to get more of these!
And lastly I picked up one of their Moxie glosses in the shade "Free Spirit." This one is new and I think limited edition. I have been wearing it NON STOP since I got it. It is a beautiful color, and all the moxie glosses have peppermint in them, so it makes your lips tingle. It also gives a slight plumping affect!
Here is a swatch!
I hope you guys enjoyed this haul/review!
