Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review


Last week I cashed in my beauty points on Sephora.com for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set:
Here it is ladies!

Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.
All Over Color in Pure Radiance- this product is way too whiteish and shimmery to use for all over color, instead it works great for a highlighter. Its almost identical to the highlighter in urban decay's naked flushed palettes.

Lash Domination in black- I was very surprised with this mascara. The spirally brush seperated my lashes and made them look like I was wearing falsies. I was convinced that I had found my new favorite mascara. Until a couple of hours later I noticed that all the mascara had fallen out and was under my eyes! Big disappointment.

Your favorite blogger sporting the Beauty and the Beach set. 

Overall I really liked all of these samples. The mascara was a big let down, but I love the bronzer. So if you are considering cashing in your sephora points, I would definitely recommend this. But it is a limited edition set, and 5 deluxe samples is worth 500 points. 

I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful. Comment below for more beauty reviews and let me know what you think about this :)
