I Live to Shine


bareMinerals Complexion Superstars

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

I have been neglected most powder products, except for my finishing powder, as I couldn't be bothered with the mess. I am glad bareMinerals  Complexion Superstars arrived to revive my "attitude" toward powders.

The set includes 6 of the brand's best selling enhancers and perfectors. Who doesn't need to enhance and perfect their natural glow (or the lack thereof)? :)

A showcase of the shades on the outside package, hot pink box and an open window to showcase the products inside. Good presentation there!

The Stars include 5 powders, 0.07oz each:
- Original Mineral Veil finishing powder - translucent finish. It gives a soft glow to the skin, like the Hourglass Ambiance powders.

- Illuminating Mineral Veil finishing powder - soft luminous finish, sheer and versatile for all skin tones.

- Golden Gate blush - a silky, lightweight pop of colour on the cheek.

- Warmth All-over face color - brings a sun-kissed glow to the skin. Though the name says "all over", it is suggested to be used where the sun would naturally touch the face (forehead, chin, cheeks, bridge of nose).

- Clear Radiance All-over face color - offers a dewy youthful glow, brings out the skin's natural luminosity with a soft, sheer luster.

- Mini Full Flawless face brush - a tapered brush to deliver medium to full coverage.

The short handle is great for travel, and the brush itself is quite sturdy. The bristles work ok with powders but I kinda wish it were a bit more dense. When I was not careful, flyaway was visible during application.

Here's the cool locking mechanism on the container. It only takes a twist of the top until the 3 dots line up with the holes to get from open (left) to close position (right). No spilling hazard!

Swatches in the same order as above.

The Original Mineral Veil is hardly visible in photographs. The sparkles you see in the middle of the first row is from the Illuminating Mineral Veil, also very subtle. The Golden Gate blush is a light wash of coral pink but it is very buildable, trust me as I tried it :)

Sideway, at the bottom, are the Warmth and Clear Radiance All-over face colors. Warmth is a lovely bronzer, and also easy to build up. Clear Radiance has a pink undertone to warm up your complexion.

Here's a FOTD featuring a few products from the set I have been enjoying :) Available now at Sephora for $49 (values $126), Limited Edition.
