Hi All! I hope your weekend is going well!
I was sent the above products from bareMinerals Limited Edition Beauty of Nature Collection for my honest review. It is inspired by blooming tropical hues and natural textures. Here’s what I received:
The Beauty of Nature Gen Nude Powder Blush in That Peach Tho ($24 USD) — This buildable talc-free blush is formulated with light-reflecting mineral pearls that blur the look of pores for a soft-focus finish. The shade is so pretty and natural looking on, and it can be built up for more of a flush. So pretty!
The Beauty of Nature Gen Nude Eyeshadow Palette Natural Oasis ($29 USD) — Build a colorful smoky eye, create a wash of color, or add a vibrant pop to your look with these 6 new island-inspired shades, from shimmering sand to rich coral. Each features Jet-Milled Mineral Pigments for buildable, blendable color while botanical extracts help nourish skin around the delicate eye area, Cucumber Extract and Caffeine help soothe skin’s appearance and Cold-Pressed Borage Oil moisturizes skin. These eyeshadows are crease- and smudge-resistant to ensure your eyes look flawless all day long.
The shades from left to right are:
- Sandy Beach: Shimmering Cream(shimmer)
- Papaya: Creamy Papaya(matte)
- Cabana: Terracotta Brown(matte)
- Red Hibiscus: Red Copper(shimmer)
- Shimmering Sunset: Warm Violet(shimmer)
- Palm Leaf: Rich Palm Green(matte)
I really enjoy this palette. It’s nicely pigmented and lots of looks can be made with it because of the gorgeous shade selection. I love that it’s not just variations on one color, that there are 6 distinct shades in it. Also, since it’s so small, it will be nice for travel this spring and summer and they shades will even look nice in the fall!
Mineralist Hydra-Smoothing Lipstick in Wisdom and Perception ($20 USD) — This creamy moisturizing lipstick is made with minimal ingredients for maximal results; it’s proven to significantly improve the look of lip lines, texture and dryness in just one week — even after you take it off — and provides 2X hydration* and 2X rich color** with one swipe.
With just 19 ingredients — 40% less than top-selling lipsticks*** — MINERALIST Hydra-Smoothing Lipstick is formulated with 76% naturally derived extracts, including sustainably sourced botanicals from around the world. MINERALIST Lipstick is infused with omega-packed, cold-pressed European Sea Buckthorn Fruit Oil; Mediterranean Olive Oil and antioxidant-rich Moroccan Pomegranate Extract to hydrate, nourish and replenish for softer, smoother lips. Because we believe less does more, we left out the unnecessary additives, including Parabens, Phthalates, Synthetic Fragrance, PEGs and Mineral Oil.
Each MINERALIST shade is inspired by the healing powers of natural minerals, crystals and gemstones, and features a subtle, uplifting natural scent of Prickly Pear and Açaí.
I also received the Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliner in Agave ($17 USD) — I can’t find the shade anywhere, so it might be an older shade. But you can purchase this eyeliner in a few other shades.
Here are swatches:
The liner is very pigmented and is nice for the waterline, or just lining the eyes.
The lipsticks are creamy, but have almost a satin-matte finish. They feel very hydrating on. These aren’t shades I normally wear, but the formula is gorgeous. I might have to pick up a nude or lighter pink!
I’m really enjoying these products! The packaging is gorgeous and it’s making me think of spring and summer. The blush and eyeshadow are my favorites, but I do recommend the lipstick in a shade that’s wearable for you. Such a beautiful formula.
