Happy Saturday! I hope your weekend is going well!
I was recently sent some bareMinerals products for my honest review. The products I received are in the photo above. I’ve taken individual photos of all of the products, except for the Original Loose Powder Foundation with SPF 15 ($29 USD) — I forgot! So I’ll review it first.
I’ve tried this foundation years ago and liked it. It was the first powder foundation I tired. It’s a bit drying on my skin, but if I moisturize and use a hydrating primer, it looks really nice on. This is nice for when I want a more natural look and works so well before I go to the gym. I like having some makeup on, and this stays put through my work out! I also love that it has SPF and gives the skin a little glow!
Complexion Rescue Defense ($39 USD) — All-in-one lightweight hydrating veil protects skin from indoor and outdoor light damage, evens skin tone and adds radiance. This also has SPF 30. This is so nice under the original loose powder foundation. It hydrates the skin and since there’s a glow under the foundation, it looks less dry on. This is also nice on it’s own.
BarePRO Glow Highlighter in Joy ($28 USD) — Cleanly formulated for long-wearing luminosity, this face highlighter can be worn three ways for a truly customized glow that lasts up to 16 hours. With light-reflecting mineral pearls, this versatile formula provides a natural-looking luminosity when worn as highlighter makeup, and can be mixed into your favorite liquid foundation, tinted moisturizer or skincare products to add a customized level of glow to your entire face.
I know this looks awfully pink in the bottle, but it gives such a pretty rosy/peachy glow. It’s really pretty on the cheeks and eyes, too!
Gen Nude Eyeshadow Palette in Neutral ($29 USD) — This is an amazing eyeshadow palette for everyday wear. It has six long lasting neutral eyeshadows for every skin tone.
This palette has 4 mattes and 2 shimmers. They are very easy to blend and look really pretty on. And they do last all day! There is also a little sheet with look ideas enclosed that are fun to try. Even though this is very neutral, there are a lot of different looks you can make with the 6 shades.
Gen Nude Powder Blush in Bellini Brunch, Beige for Days and On The Mauve ($24 USD each) — This weightless blush comes in 12 amped up nude shades that mimic a natural flush. The good-for-skin, ultra-creamy formula is long lasting, blendable, and features the new Blurring Mineral Complex for a brightening, soft-focus effect.
I really like these blushes, especially On The Mauve. It’s so gorgeous for fall, actually all of the shades above are! The blushes apply really smoothly and are well pigmented.
Gen Nude® Patent Lip Lacquer in Can’t Even and Bae ($19 USD each) — This high gloss liquid lipstick has a cushiony, hydrating formula that features the Moisturizing Mineral Complex to help keep lips soft, while a dual-sided applicator smooths on full coverage with one swipe.
These are so fun, they are super opaque and really glossy, too. And they aren’t too sticky, which is really important to me when wearing something glossy. The shades are nice, too!
I really are loving these products! I’m so glad I got to try other products besides the foundation. I’d say my favorites are the eyeshadow palette, the blushes and the lip lacquers.
Have you tried bareMinerals lately? Which products do you love?

I love bare minerals. I’ve been wearing their gen nude lipsticks lately and they’re so comfortable!
That eyeshadow palette looks beautiful and great for everyday
Yes, it’s a really nice brand for everyday looks!
I haven’t tried anything from bare minerals, but now I should! All of the products you reviewed look great! 😄
They are, and really nice for every day looks!
I just picked up the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue, and I’m so excited to start trying it! Those glosses & that palette look amazing too,
I hope you like it!
I used Bare Minerals pretty much exclusively for around 10 years. Was the only foundation I would use. I still like it but it’s messy. I love the BarePro liquid foundation. Though and I have 3 of the Gen Nude liquid lipsticks.
I haven’t tried the BarePro liquid foundation. I’ll have to check it out!
I have a review on my blog if you’d like to read it.
I used to use Bare Minerals a lot, but not so much any more. They have so many new things out! I will have to check them out again next time I’m in Sephora 🙂
I agree, there are so many new brands and products released all of the time. It’s hard to keep up!
