So before i purchased my NARS Deep Throat Blush from SpaceNK i popped in to the Bare Escentuals store in Covent Garden and had a wee look at their new pressed eyeshadows. I really liked them but talked myself out of buying any due to the fact i have so many new eyeshadows to try. But i did leave the store with two purchases. The first being a super sweet Buxom Plumping Lip Gloss in the color bambi (can’t seem to find this colour on their website). Which isn’t like me at all I am not a pure pink lip gloss kinda gal. But the MUA in their had this shade on and it looked so fresh and sweet so i was won over. The other purchase was one of their new Bare Minerals READY blushes in the colour The Aphrodisiac.
This blush is a really perfect shade for a subtle hint of colour. Just enough for a flushed look. The formula of these blushes seem quite soft and creamy and is SO much easier to work with compared to their Mineral range. I’m too clumsy and heavy handed to deal with mineral anything i get it everywhere and is so hard to travel with. You end up in such a mess with product everywhere.
The packaging is not unlike NARS with the velvet esk feel to the compact case. Although inside you get a little more product. You do get 6g of Blush for £22 which i think is OK for a special purchase. I do not by any means spend this much often on anything but a foundation. I am super happy with my choice of colour and find it to be a sweet coral peach colour with a hint – not a lot of shimmer.It looks a lot more shimmery in the pan. So do not be put off. The colour is build-able and you can make it quite an intense peach colour if you wanted a more dramatic look. I have’t used the brush it comes with & tend not too. I am so going to go back and add a few other colours to my collection. They claim the mineral colour will last up to eight hours – quite a claim. I will put it to the test.bareMinerals READY Blush in The Aphrodisiac
The lip gloss i am yet to photograph or really test. I have worn it a few times and the colour pay off is fantastic and makes my lips tingle but can’t say for sure yet if it is plumping. I will review that in a few weeks. Do you own any Bare Minerals products? I am quite interested in their skincare. I just wish there was a shop near by that sold it. :o(bareMinerals READY Blush in The Aphrodisiac
I like to think the products I use are good for my skin but often you just don’t know. With bareMinerals they have quite a good policy on good skin care and the ingredients they include in their products. Makes me want to learn more and add more to my collection.
