bareMinerals ‘Bright and Beautiful Kit’ in ‘Light’.

I recently ordered for the first time from feelunique.com and picked up this bareMinerals kit that included a huge 8 FULL SIZE products from bareMinerals for….£22.85. Oh yes. 8 full sized high-end products for £23. I was shocked too. Let’s get into the products! (This will be a picture heavy post!)

Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer – £17.85 for 30ml
feelunique.com

Swatched in natural daylight.

This primer is nice, it reminds me of a thinner version of Benefit’s ‘The Porefessional’. I do have a problem with the packaging though, as the nozzle squirts product out at such a force that it actually went all over my face as I was trying to swatch it. I know it’s going to go there eventually, but I want to control the amount a bit better! This could just be my bottle though.

Total so far: £17.85

Prime Time Brightening Eyelid Primer – Roughly £60 for 8ml
All websites offer only 3ml for £16, which comes out to £5.33 per ml.

Swatched in natural daylight.

I LOVE this primer. It’s beautiful! It’s a champagne colour, easy to blend out and in lovely packaging. bareMinerals doesn’t actually sell this in the size it came to me in. This is 8ml, and the ‘full size’ on the website and feelunique is apparently 3ml. I don’t have a problem with that! The amount you get is amazing. This is gonna last me a while! 🙂

Total so far: £77.85 (!!!!!!)

Original Foundation SPF15 in ‘light w15’ – £25 for 8g.

Okay, this is not my skintone. I don’t think that the company thought this through, because this is INCREDIBLY yellow and not really light at all. I don’t mind though, as I do my friends’ make-up a lot and my friend Emily has more yellow-toned skin that’s a little darker than mine. However, beware if you only need this for yourself. Try to pop into a Boots that sells bareMinerals and do some swatching. If you have pink tones in your skin though, this probably won’t be for you. It’s nice to blend though, and very finely milled and soft.

Total so far: £102.85

Mineral Blush in ‘Vivacious’ – £19 for 0.85g.

Oh this is yummy! This is a perfect rosy pink blush, very nice to apply and would probably suit all skin tones. It has shimmer, not glitter, and again, is very finely milled. I love the packaging too.

Total so far: £121.85.

Eyecolour in ‘Alive’ – £14 for 0.57g.

Okay well this is ridiculous. Definitely not a shade I would use all over my eyes, like they are suggesting. The ‘deep’ shade selection of the Bright and Beautiful kit actually had a beautiful bronzey coloured shadow, which I would have appreciated a lot more than a magenta-pink. That said, it’s the same situation as the other two, very soft and fine, nice to apply.

Total so far: £135.85

Big & Bright Eyeliner in ‘Plum’ – £13 for 0.35g.
bareminerals.co.uk or feelunique.com

This eyeliner is a lovely, creamy consistency and it glides on to the waterline or tightline and smudges nicely. I actually love the colour too! It’s a plum shade, but one that isn’t too far away from black, so only someone very close would notice. It’s a nice way to start experimenting with colour if you’re afraid to wear it around the eyes! I know that I’m a sucker for black liner and neutral shadows, but you never know what might work. This looks lovely.

Total so far: £148.85

Lipgloss in ‘Lollipop’ – £14 for 4.2ml.
bareminerals.co.uk or feelunique.com

This is so nice! It’s a very sheer, medium pink gloss with subtle silver flecks. I say flecks because they’re definitely not glitter, just shiny. I’m not too fond of the smell, but I like the feel of it on my lips. It’s quite sticky, not as sticky as a Bourjois or Mac lipgloss, but getting there. It also has a brush applicator, rather than I doefoot, which I like. I wish there were more brush applicators on lipglosses!

Total so far: £162.85

Limited edition dual-ended brush – not available.

This is a nice brush. It’s not really anything special, but it’s nice. The pencil end is not as dense as I want it to be, and the shadow end is perhaps too dense, but they do a nice job, and I always love to add to my brush collection.

Image

So…for all of that separately it would have cost you £162.85.

THAT IS MENTAL.

I’m really glad that I picked this kit up. It’s still in the ‘Outlet’ section on feelunique.com, so if this caught your eye, run, and I mean RUN, and pick it up. You won’t be sorry.

Do you own anything from bareMinerals? What would you love from this kit?
