This Just In: Bare Minerals Feel the Love Collection

Hey everyone!
TGIF!! I just went to the mailbox and look what I found! I ordered this kit last Saturday- it was the Today's Special Value on QVC, and it just looked too good to pass up! It's the Bare Minerals Feel the Love collection. It contains full-size makeup products and a couple of brushes that convert into double-ended brushes! This isn't a full review by any means, but more of a quick haul! :) The set comes with the following products...

-Bare Minerals Ready Foundation- This is the only color you choose with this kit, and then they give you the corresponding shades of concealer and brightener. My foundation is in Medium Beige. I've heard some really good things about the Ready foundation, but this will be my first time trying it. It was the main reason why I wanted to get this kit. Excited!
-Bare Minerals Ready Blush/Luminizer in The Love Letter/The Daydream- This is a mauve blush and a pretty pink/golden highlight. Never tried the Ready blushes either. Such a nice large size!
-Bare Minerals Concealer - Summer Bisque- Here's a product that I know and love! I'm a big fan of Bisque, Summer Bisque, and Well-Rested... a small amount of these loose mineral concealers go a long way and can add so much coverage to any concealer. Used sparingly around the eyes- these are great! Summer Bisque is a good match for my skin, but I'll also use Well Rested for added brightness in the inner corners of my eyes.
-Stroke of Light- Luminous 2- This is another product I've tried, but I have it in one shade lighter. It's designed to be an eye brightener, but I find that it makes a nice all-purpose highlighting product anywhere on the face. Glad to have a second shade to experiment with. 
-Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Starlet- This gloss smells like mint chocolate chip! :) You feel a bit of a minty coolness on the lips and it's very shiny. I got one of these not too long ago in a QVC Beauty Test Tube. This pink looks gorgeous!
-2 in 1 Face/Concealer Brush & 2 in 1 Cheek/Eye Brush- I LOVE this concept because I REALLY dislike double-ended brushes! They're so hard to store without smooshing one end! So these brushes actually come apart- and the smaller end goes inside the larger part! 

Why hasn't anyone thought of this innovation sooner?! The fit is really secure too. When you snap them into double-ended mode, I don't feel like one end is going to fly off. The brushes are really soft, and while you don't get an eyeshadow product in this particular kit, it's cool that there is a really dense eye brush included. Awesome concept for travel also. 

Here's a closer look at the blush/luminizer and the gloss. 

I already had my makeup done, but I just threw on the gloss for the heck of it. Love the shine! Are these Marvelous Moxie glosses supposed to be plumping? It feels so nice and cool on the lips. No annoying tingle. 

Just wanted to show you what I'll be experimenting with! Did you order this kit? What do you think of the Bare Minerals Ready collection? I really love the Ready eyeshadows, and I also have the Ready Tinted Touch Up Veil, which is really nice. It's been awhile since I've used my loose Bare Minerals, but this kit kind of makes me want to get back into the brand again. Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful weekend! :)

Daily Nuggets...
  • Edited a new video that'll go up Sunday on Beauty Broadcast! :)
  • Around IMATS time I got really behind replying to tweets/facebook posts. I know I missed some, so if I didn't get to your question I'm sorry! (Twitter only goes back so far for old tweets) But now I'm all caught up and feeling good about that!! 
  • I tweeted earlier about having "big hair" today (curled it up all over)- but several informed me that it's not big according to Texas standards. LOL! :) According to fine, flat hair girl standards though, it IS big!

  1. I ordered this because of the Ready Foundation. I love mineral foundation in the summer and am hoping that this will be a more travel friendly version of the loose powder. I look forward to seeing your thoughts as you try the items in the kit. Love your videos and blog posts!

  2. I really love the set! The brushes are genius, hands down! And the lipgloss looks really, really great! I'm glad there's no annoying tingle!

  3. You will love the READY foundation Emily. I work at a Bare Escentuals store and the only thing I would say is that it is a tad bit lighter than the original foundation. Medium Beige should work perfect for you though! I love when you feature BM!! :)

  6. I got this TSV also. I don't know if I like the foundation too much. I feel like it makes me look really cakey even if I apply it lightly. Ho hum.

  10. What a great coincidence! I had noticed you used Well Rested in a few looks and I was going to ask you what you thought of the rest of the Bare Minerals line. And look what you post today! Booyah

  12. Hi,

    I have not known this brand, do you know if is there in Portugal?

    I really love the gloss and iluminator, but foundation i prefer liquid...i think it is the best choice for my skin.

    Keep going!

    Kiss

  13. I was happy to see that you'll be able to try the Ready foundation. I think it's such a great foundation, that you can really build and create the coverage you want. More importantly, for me, it feels like i'm wearing no foundation and it LOOKS like you're wearing no foundation (just awesome even toned skin). I hope you like it! Also, i don't think Moxie is a lip plumper...I love my Moxie too!
    I'm a bareminerals fan, and i'm happy to see you have some now!

  14. The BM Ready Foundation is awesome. I get breakouts and have some discoloration so I like more of a full coverage foundation. It's so much better than the original foundation. The coverage is build-able...You can wear it alone or on top of another foundation (very lightly). I personally like it alone. The coverage is amazing and it doesn't take much. I also love the bisque. In my opinion it is BM's best product. My skin gets a little dry but I am still able to use it and it covers everything. I wanted to order this kit (i'm a qvc junkie) but I was a good girl. I'm sure you'll love it all!

  15. I ordered this kit because I used to love Bare Minerals....but I realize now that I am sooo over BM. The Buxom and Moxie lipgloss is all I like from this line now. JMO.
