Review: New in from bareMinerals

How have I been obsessing over foundations for years and never tried bareMinerals? I've heard a lot of good things about them but never made the commitment at the Sephora check-out.. so I was VERY excited to find these in my PO box. These new releases from bareMinerals immediately replaced my skin priming and foundation routine. It was a perfect transition from ultra light oil control routine in the summer into fall. 

BAREPRO Performance Wear Liquid Foundation - This has a great full coverage yet natural look and lasts all day. It comes in 30 shades so you're going to be able to find the perfect colour for you. I received four shades to try but sadly two broke in the post (it happens!) and I think those darker shades would have matched me better :( I'm currently satisfied using #16 but I think I'll go into Sephora and have them give me a colour match since there's so many to choose from :) It has SPF 20 and gives your skin a nice "soft-focus" effect for a perfect smooth complexion. 

Luxe Performance Brush - The perfect foundation brush! I'm used to using a Beauty Blender so I usually have doubts about brushes but I was pleasantly surprised. It worked great with the BAREPRO foundation and the shape fits perfectly on more difficult areas. 

BAREPRO Contour Face-Shaping Trio - I haven't actually ever bought a contour pallet! I ended up really enjoying how well they blended and the colour selection as these can sometimes appear orangey on my skin. It's much more convenient to have all the colours you need together in one pallet. Photographed is the "tan to deep" pallet and it also comes in "fair to medium."

GOOD HYDRATIONS Silky Face Primer - This product is both moisturizing and priming. It conceals pores without that heavy feel of some primers. It sits very well underneath the BAREPRO foundation and makes my skin feel extra soft. 

SKINLONGEVITY Vital Power Infusion - Love this serum, it simply gives my skin a smooth and glowing look before I put my makeup on. 

SKINLONGEVITY Vital Power Eye Gel Cream - This feels light-weight around my eyes, I hate the feeling of heavy eye creams. I was not able to tell a notable difference when using this cream but my eyes are definitely not a problem area. The Skinlongevity items promote a more youthful and supple look to your skin. 

Let me know in the comments below if any of these items caught your eye or if you've tried them before and have some opinions to share :) All products are available at Sephora and Sephora.ca!
