Beauty | bareMinerals – Lash Domination & Ready Eyeshadow

As I said before in last month’s post (bareMinerals Part 1 – Mineral Veil Finishing Powder & Blush) I’m a bit of a newbie to the bareMinerals range. I decided to find what makes the bareMinerals collection so unique from other beauty brands on the market. Every bareMinerals product contains a specialised blend of natural minerals which claim to deliver ‘one-of-a-kind beauty benefits such as the vibrant pigmentation of their eyeshadows, the sun-protecting elements in their award-winning SPF 15 Original Foundation and the cell-renewing formula contained in their skincare. bareMinerals extensive research into the potential and power minerals has enabled them to create products that help the skin’s defense against environmental stressors, increase cell turnover and improve the skin’s natural radiance. Their mineral formulas not only make you look good but work together to improve your complexion! Very impressive, I think you’ll agree! I’m currently saving my pennies to purchase either their legendary Original SPF 15 Foundation (£25) or their new bareSkin pure Brightening Serum Foundation (£26) – I can’t decide which. Bannatynes Spa Dunfermline are currently offering a free skin match service with bareSkin so I might go with that depending on the results.

So to get a little taster of what bareMinerals has to offer I recently bought ‘Greatest Performers’, an introductory gift set containing miniature versions of 6 best selling customer favourites including; Lash Domination, Mineral Veil, Beauty Blush, Prime Time, READY 2.0 eyeshadow duo in Debutante & Waltz and Marvelous Moxie lip gloss. Today I’ll be looking at two of these lovely products; Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 in High Society and Lash Domination 10-in-1 Voluminizing Mascara.

The Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 in High Society contains a soft blushing nude called Debutante (left) and Waltz, a soft lilac taupe (right). Both shadows have a satin-like finish with a slight shimmer. The texture to both shadows is lightweight and silky, both are highly pigmented and extremely blendable, allowing for effortless application. Together they create a very soft, warm, pretty look that lasts all day. Not only does this eyeshadow look gorgeous but it contains a “SeaNutritive Mineral Complex” that help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and puffiness plus boosting moisture levels while you wear it! I love the idea of the compact eyeshadows rather than their loose powder pots as I’ve already lost half my blusher after it exploded (I didn’t shut the lid properly) in my handbag. The palettes seem much more ‘Roxie proof’ and convenient. I can see why these shades are best sellers they’re easy to wear, a dream to apply and, like all bareMineral products, contain no parabens, fillers or harsh chemicals.

Next up, Lash Domination 10-in-1 Volumizing Mascara. So why 10-in-1 you ask? Because it promises to volumize, lengthen, thicken, separate, lift, lasts all day, is mineral fortified, smudge-resistant, fights flakes and resists clumps. As you can see above the ProTwist180 wand is spiraled so it curves around each lash and coats all angles with it’s intense black colour. 

As you can see from the photo above Lash Domination significantly lengthened and added extra volume to create a wide-eyed effect. Although I adore the chrome packaging the sample I received contained the full sized brush which is really big (which I love!) but with an extraordinarily tiny handle so application proved really tricky! Regardless, I really liked the dramatic appearance it gave my lashes and I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase a full sized bottle (when I have the funds) so that I can really take full advantage of the ProTwist180 wand. A lovely product but an inconvenient and poor sample design which is a pity!
