face still recovering

I wanted to love this product and initially started using it with the wash and eye cream, but it ruined my skin! At first my skin was silky smooth and I was very happy but with continued use my face started getting terrible spots so after giving it a chance I had to admit defeat. Then after a few months I decided to just use the 5 oil blend with my usual wash and used the oil very sparingly as well as applying some mineral vail afterwards to take away any excess- all was great for about 5 days. It helped my dry skin but then my skin broke out again and nothing causes it like this product. I have combination skin and this time of year its just super dry so I cant quite see how its having this effect on me but as much as I want this product to work its just not worth it. Stopped a month ago and im still trying to cover up the damage. I can see this could be a great product if it likes your skin but just be aware that for some people this could cause problems.

perfect for on the go but not all sections are 5*

3 powders in one compact- what more can you need!! For me this was perfect (well nearly), but I am very light skinned. The bronzer is amazing!! so natural and very easy to apply- you cant really go wrong with it. The blush is again very natural but not too light- more of a rosey cheek look than a i'm wearing blusher today look! They both go on well regardless of what foundation I am wearing and having both of those in one compact is deserving of 5*... then we get to the middle bit- the luminizer.. I just cant get it to go on nicely! No matter what I try it looks terrible (consistency and how it makes my skin look), I had another luminizer in another set and that was the same, so I just have to accept that luminizer is most definitely not a product for me. It says you can put all 3 on together at once which I tried once- it gave my face a nice colour but also a gold shimmer which for me isnt a good look so ill completely skip the middle man and stick with the 2 well sized ends!! The brush is great if you want a subtle look and im sure it will be one I use, but at the moment I have swapped brushes as I dont want it too subtle!

I usually use the combination cream but needed something more now the cold is here and heating is being used. I was getting my usual red sore dry patches but this has sorted it right out. I do find I only need a small amount and if i put too much on it can affect my foundation but only in that I get little flakes on my skin that wipe right off so its not really a problem anyway. It also takes a little longer to soak into the skin. So glad I don't have to go back to my usual winter cream that makes me look like im wearing wax and is full of all sorts. This is definitely a must have if you have very dry skin/eczema.

I already knew I was In love with these lip balms as I purchased a single one and quickly decided I am going to ditch all my lipsticks in favour of these. They have the colour intensity of lipsticks, in my opinion last much longer than the bm lipsticks (with the added benefit of lipstain after) and leave your lips super soft. I got this pack as it worked out better than buying individual colours but I was not expecting to love all 3. Firstly plumberry looks very purple in the picture I saw, I was made up when it arrived and its fabulous berry pink- that's my evening colour sorted. Nude passion will be staying in my pocket for the rest of winter- very natural just gives my lips a hint of colour giving me a healthy look perfect for when im doing the "I'm not wearing any make up look". And lastly there is pink passion- for all the times in-between!
This is the first time I have ever got a collection and loved every item and know I will fully use each and every one.

This really is an amazing product, I started having problems with eyeshadows due to my wrinkly eyelids. These eyeshaddows are just what I needed. Firstly its so easy to apply, no need for a brush, I just use my finger to blend. It lasts all day and doesn't crease at all. it can be used under powder eyeshadow which does work, I tried it, but just stick with this on its own as I am quite lazy with make up and like to use as little products as quick as possible! I do find the colours very subtle, sweet spice is my favourite and for possibly the darkest colour this is my perfect day colour. More colours are definitely needed. I also noticed my eyelids are actually smoother from using this but I do use it every day.

My favourite foundation- but it does not live up to the name!

I was torn with the stars for this one as there are 2 ways of looking at it- is this a 5 star foundation? yes... but its called blemish remedy- does the blemish remedy work? No.
I tried this foundation purely for the blemish remedy aspect and had been using the original powder. I love the powder, I find it much easier to apply and a smoother finish than original (although I have not tried original with the new brush and I did find the brush made a difference with the blemish remedy) it lasts well and the colour is perfect. I also find my skin feels silkier than original foundation so even though I dont like this has lost the spf this is my official foundation from now on- however I do not feel it has helped my skin so do not expect miracles. The coverage may not be the best for some but for me it is perfect, you would think that as its a blemish foundation it would cover more but for me I prefer a light breathable foundation and the colour is still great. I have a deathly pale complexion and found that the clearly porcelain was spot on. if you like this product I would get the seamless brush as it really does make a difference

So much better than expected

I got this as I wanted a lip balm with a bit of colour and thought id have a little treat, expecting to use it and then go back to cheaper lip balms... Firstly it feels so nice on, creamy but not at all stick and the colour is very vibrant, I was expecting a hint of colour but this has the colour of a lipstick, I got rose and its a bright pinky red on me... too much for a day look for me but will be fab for when I go all out. Then there is the long lasting aspect... I was drinking, eating and vaping and in my opinion it lasted much better than the bb lipsticks and just when I thought it had come off I realised that the lip stain is very effective, my lips still had a very even colour that was not vibrant like the balm but a toned down matt version. I probably wont be using my lipsticks any more and sticking with the balms, I have already ordered the pack of 3 as I need more colours but it would be amazing if more colours where introduced- especially more natural ones and browns

love the products but not the eye pot
Rating:

I wanted to try these as I was interested in the 5 oil blend and the eye cream so this little pack was a must. The first day I put on in the morning and my make up went on perfect afterwards but I decided to just use it at night as I was worried it might be too much oil for my combination skin and as you need to let it sink in a bit before make up that was the one I chose to skip... I have now decided its fine for my skin so if I have drying time I use it in the morning too. I love every single product BUT the eye pot I find impossible... I cut my nails as short as possible but still i cant put it on wit my finger it ends up under my nail, im hoping it will be easier when there is more room in the pot but you only need a tiny bit of each product so that will not be any time soon! shame cause I love how cute and compact it all is and if functional I would buy more of these trial packs and use the little eye balm as a lip balm to carry around with me. I would definitely recommend this pack though as you get to try all 3 products and they are amazing and tbh I can see this lasting me much longer than the 30 days it says it will last!

I have never actually tried an eyebrow pencil before so cant compare it to others but this is definitely an essential now! I was worried about smudging while wearing it... I have tried to get it to smudge it just wont budge! my eyebrows are never even but this little beauty gives me the perfect pair! I dont know how I lived my life without ever using this before!

why is this a limited edition??
Rating:

I got this in the hope it would tone down my lipstick and while it did somewhat tone it down it wasnt enough to save the lipstick... so I have taken to wearing it on its own and love it. feels lovely on, i personally get a slight tingle.. not in a bad way I cant really describe it but if i was to try it would be a cooling menthol type tingling??!!! Either way its a perfect lip gloss, gives my lips a better natural colour and they have a lovely sheen without looking too much. I am just hoping the limited edition is regarding the design and not the colour

Colour match
.Please could you tell me which is the best colour match for the BareMinerals Blemish Remedy Foundation if I use Fair BareMinerals original SPF15 foundation?
I would go for clearly porcelain- I find it perfect for me and I used fair in original

Is mineral foundation ok for an older skin on the dry side.
I have noticed that some people are saying that it can look ageing, is this true.
In my opinion you need the right brush, I tried with one and it did emphasize my wrinkles and flaky skin, but then I tried the precision face brush and it looks amazing. I would maybe go to a retailer and ask to try it so you can see though as im not sure one brush fits all!
