Bare Minerals Crystalized Full Face Collection…

bareMinerals READY eyeshadow 2.0 
The Magic Word
Presto is a Champagne shimmer and Abracadabra is a slate grey shimmer. Both have really good color payoff with very little fallout.
Steam eyeshadow 
A snow white shimmer pigment. It’s mildly iridescent and has a subtle gold tone to it. This is a gorgeous white and is the perfect highlight color, for both under the brow and above the cheekbone.
Mesmerized eyeshadow
 A deep, matte charcoal black. Even though it looks super dark in the jar, it applies soft and smokey. It’s very easy to blend and would be perfect for doing a smokey eye.
All Over Face Color in Golden Gate Radiance 
A beautiful nude that leans slightly pink with a sheen. It also has gold microshimmer, it’s not OTT shimmer but it is noticeable on the skin.

Lash Domination Volumizing mascara in Intense Black
The brush has a rubbery type wand with bristles that spiral around it leaving blank channels for product to deposit.
IMO it’s a decent mascara, it’s a rich black that gives nice length and volume. However, it’s not waterproof/resistant so it does nothing to hold the curl in my lashes and it takes forever to dry. I find it stays “sticky” all day, like if you touch your lashes they will stick together causing unilash, and it’s pretty difficult to remove.
Marvelous Moxie
Break Away
A nude mauve with a satin creme finish. It goes on nice and smooth with great color payoff.  I also love the packaging, you slide the little “button” down which ejects the lipstick, very sleek! It has a very mild vanilla scent/flavor, which goes away quickly.
Marvelous Moxie
Hypnotist
Where to begin? The base color is a soft lilac but the holographic properties shift it from green to yellow to pink/peach. It’s probably the most beautiful lipgloss I’ve ever seen, but sadly the effect doesn’t fully translate to the lip. When you first apply it you see the beautiful effect, but as it “melts” into the lips you lose the effect. However, it leaves your lips looking super glossy and plump. This has a mild vanilla scent/flavor, it’s not overwhelming and doesn’t last very long.

The double ended shade and liner brush. I like the shade end of the brush, it picks up and deposits the right amount of shadow.
The liner end is made of a soft squishy silicone which makes it difficult to actually pick up product. I’m not really a fan of this, if it were stiffer it may make it easy to blend out liner but it flexes under very little pressure making it hard to use.
Overall:
I really like this kit! I find myself using most of the items as part of my everyday face, and the colors are very flattering.
Price:
This kit retails for $54 at Sephora. VIB discount codes should be coming out shortly(not sure how much they are this year) so if you like this kit that would be a great time to pick it up.
