Some brands I have loved for years. Others are fairly new to me. It wasn't long ago that I first tried a set from bareMinerals. Since then I have picked up a few items here and there. Every single time I have been over the moon impressed with the quality and texture. Which is why I picked up their latest offering the moment I spotted it at Sephora. What was it? The Bronzed & Luminous set. Inside there were two different eye palettes. One to create a summery bronzed look and the other to create a makeup look that is glowy and gorgeous.
The concept was intriguing to say the least. Two palettes in one set? Two totally different makeup looks? Nothing could sound better to a makeup addict like myself. As soon as I got home that night, I started swatching. The next day, I debated which palette to use first. Over the next week or so, I used these palettes and only these palettes. Let me just say, it has been a serious love affair. So, here is a closer look at the first set from this collection.....
To start, let's look at the Bronzed palette. It comes with three eyeshadow shades, two cheek products, and a lip gloss. The eyeshadow shades are buttery soft, highly pigmented, and easy to use. There is a light cream colour, a shimmery rose gold, and a striking bronze colour. Then there are the two cheek products. They are both beautiful and bronzey. I like to use the lighter shade as a bronzer and the deeper shade as more of a blush colour. Then there is the lip gloss. Like the other bareMinerals glosses I have tried, it is nicely pigmented, comfortable to wear, and has a mint kind of scent. So pretty - and one of my favourites in terms of glosses.
Basically? I love everything about this set. The colours are beautiful and easy to wear. The quality is absolutely incredible as well. In my opinion, some of the best out there. This is perfect for days that you are getting ready on the go, travelling, or if you need to put together a look quickly. Here is the makeup look I created using this set.
Overall, I was incredible impressed with the Bronzed palette from bareMinerals. Every single product in the set was gorgeous and easy to use. I love the fresh, pretty, and wearable makeup look it can create on a spring or summer day. There is nothing like some bronzey neutrals to amp up any and all ensembles. No wonder I keep turning to this palette over and over again. I absolutely adore it! Want to find out how the Luminous palette compares? Is it better? Worse? Amazing? A flop?
