I’m a FAB member (Friends and Benefits) for BareMinerals which gives me some very cool perks, discounts and an annual personal sale day of 15% off on a day of your choosing (you have to set it in advance).
BareMinerals and I go way back. I’ve been using their products since high school, which is a long time. Back then I just wore powder every day since I was blessed with youthful and blemish free skin for a majority of the time. Way back then, I think the only place (and I may be wrong) that sold the brand was QVC and my mom had gotten me the mineral foundation sets on autodelivery every other month. I seriously could never go through that much product and by the time I finally canceled the autodelivery a few years ago I had accumulated so many! I still have a little shoebox full that I’m slowly using! Anyway, the point is, it’s a great brand that I’ve used for many years and I love stocking up on some tried and true products as well as trying out new things from them.
For my recent personal sale day, I stocked up on two of my favorite items from the brand: Purely Nourishing Moisturizer: Combination Skin and Well-Rested Eye Brightener . I love the moisturizer to of course moisturize my face and calm my skin. It’s a very light-weight moisturizer so I use it most nights, but when I want something a little more heavy duty I tend to rely on other moisturizers. The Well-Rested powder, if you have been following me for a while, is a product I use every single day. I use it to set my under-eye concealer and is a must for me.
The last 2 items I picked up are new to me – the 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow in Blushing Pink and Sweet Spice. According to the website, these are described as “Meet the next generation in eyeshadow: creamy, long-wearing color meets exceptional skincare benefits and Broad Spectrum SPF protection. Chock-full of skin-loving ingredients, this breakthrough product delivers 5 benefits in one luxurious formula.” And these 5 benefits are:
- 12-hour long-wearing color
- Supercharged primer
- Powerful brightening benefits
- Smoothes the appearance of fine lines
- Protects with Broad Spectrum SPF 15
I haven’t gotten the chance to try these out yet, but I’m excited to see how they apply and wear. I’m much more comfortable with powders than creams (both in shadows and blushes) so we’ll see! Have any of you ever tried these BareMinerals cream shadows? I’ll be sure to post an update with my thoughts on these 5-in-1 BB Cream Eyeshadows!
