bareMinerals | Good to Glow Review & Swatches

In Light

Origional SPF 15 Foundation 

What they say:
100% pure mineral foundation looks like a powder, feels like a cream and buffs on like silk for flawless coverage with natural luminosity

Light on the Left & Fairly Light on the Right
I really like this foundation, I have very dry skin so I was a bit worried at first as powders can be very drying on my skin. The colour match was brilliant for me, I got this in fairly light and I'm usually a NC20 in MAC foundations.
It does feel really silky and didn't settle and make me look cakey and I don’t find that this makes my skin any dryer than it already is which is defo a bonus! 
My sensitive skin hasn't reacted to this which was another thing I was worried about as I’d seen a few reviews that had mentioned reactions to this. Luckiy all was okay! 

I didn’t find that it covered blemishes that brilliantly but I use my MAC Studio Sculpt concealer for those little sods anyway. This powder did even out my complexion nicely and concealed my red cheeks well which is what I look for. 
I do like this foundation but it’s more of a matt finish as it’s a powder. I do still love my YSL Touché Éclat foundation as it’s a bit dewier but I'll still be using this as it has a nice finish. I may even switch this up with my HD powder – MAC Mineralizeskin finish.

Marvellous Moxie Lipgloss in Rebel

What they say:
This luscious lipgloss delivers sheer, vivid colour and a shiny mirror like finish that lasts for hours.

This is a nice pinky sheer colour & is definately something i would wear and i think it would suit most people to be honest! It smells minty and leaves a tingly feeling on your lips (a bit like carmex does). It does feel a little sticky but it wouldn't stop me wearing it. I wouldnt say that it lasts hours either but i dont think i have ever had a lip gloss that does? I will be using this but i dont think i would purchase this again as i do prefer my Bourjois Sweet kiss lipstick.

Blush in Beauty

What they say:
This creamy, lightweight blush gives your skin a healthy, fresh vibrancy that looks and feels natural.

This blush is a nice pinky colour and again is something i would wear and i think it would suit most skin tones.
This is a nice lightweight blush and it went on nice and easy without going patchy. A little goes a long way as its quite pigmented.
I will definitely be wearing this, it's very similar to the colour of the blusher i wear most days and i like the thought that its mineral blush.
I would buy this again and perhaps try a few other colours :)
Ready SPF Touch Up Veil

What they say:
Diffuses the look of imperfections while reducing shine for a flawless finish throughout the day.

I didn't swatch this it was basically invisible on my hand. I'm not keen on the little puff thingy i much prefer using a brush for this.
I feel like I put too much powder on my face if i use this after the bareMinerals foundation to be honest but its not a bad product. It does take away the shine and leaves a matt finish which i guess is the purpose of it! I don't get shiney during the day though so perhaps thats why i dont find myself reaching for it.

Flawless Application Brush

What they say:
Natural, soft tapered bristles provide light to medium coverage.

This brush feels so soft! It's my favourite brush i own now, I even use it for my other non bareMineral powders - because i'm naughty like that ;) I would agree that its low to medium coverage, its not heavy at all - i really do love it.

Has anyone else tried this? What did you think?
