Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have #5: BareMinerals 2014 Holiday Collection – the Eyes!

IMG_5035

Make Her Up was sent some samples of BareMinerals Holiday Collection. Over the next couple days we’ll be sharing with you what we’ve tried and what we loved (and we loved it all!). Remember MHU doesn’t receive payment for these posts…. just some pretty fantasical products.

First, check out one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE palettes, the Ready Convertible Eyeshadow Palette! This Limited-Edition palette is just as gorgeous as it looks, trust me. I have this one from last year and I’m STILL using it! This thing will last an eternity! BareMinerals Eyeshadow really, truly is about as good as it gets. With the use of a primer (here’s my favorite) this shadow will stay on for 24 hours. Okay, it will stay on for 48 hours, and I’ll just let you think that I wash my makeup off every night like a good girl.

The possibilities are endless with this palette. Hundreds, thousands, MILLIONS of looks are possible with this gorgeous set! Did you notice that the center pops out into a cute mini-palette when you want something smaller? I mean c’mon, it’s genius.

This beautiful palette is only $39 – and that is a STEAL! Don’t wait! This limited edition will be gone before you know it!

Combine these two products together – and imagine the possibilities!

This collection of Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliners includes five must-have daytime shades for strikingly beautiful eye looks that last. Each wearable shade glides on a precise line for maximum color intensity-every day.

Review: bareMinerals 5-in-1 BB Cream Eyeshadow

5-in-1

My first question is how did I live without bareMinerals 5-in-1 BB Cream Eyeshadow? I was introduced to this newest wonder in makeup from my Ipsy subscription.  This creamy eyeshadow works as an SPF, primer, line reducer and long wearing shadow.

I love that I can apply this first thing in the morning and it still looks perfect at the end of my day. No matter what I am up to this little creamy shadow stays put. The formula is so creamy it feels great on my skin and it dries and sets quickly.

5in1 divine wine swatch

My sample shade was divine wine and I love it! Its a great neutral for Fall and I love how it adds a little drama to my eyes without looking too dark. Swatch above is Divine Wine. I can’t wait to get more shades of the 5-in-1, I love any product that saves me time in the morning.

bareMinerals Bareskin Foundation will change how you view foundation!

IMG_2002

I know Erin reviewed this foundation last week, but I was sent it as well so I wanted to put my 2 cents in! I probably wouldn’t have reviewed it – had I not LOVED IT…but I did – so I wanted to share!

bareMinerals has done it again! They have come up with another revolutionary foundation! Pick the shade that best matches your skin tone (there are 20 to choose from!), and you’re off! Drop a couple of drops of the liquid foundation onto the special foundation brush – and smooth over your face! I find that it goes on so silky and smooth, and dries into a beautiful, matte finish!

Clinically proven tone-correcting mineral foundation and brightening serum in one. Created with exceptional purity in mind, this ultra-thin, skin-perfecting fluid provides seamless adjustable coverage, a natural finish and the look and feel of beautiful skin while delivering a noticeably brighter, more youthful appearance. Made with the bare minimum ingredients and formulated without oil, silicone, parabens or fragrance. It’s like nothing you’ve ever felt before.

Available in 20 skin-perfecting shades!

I’m obsessed with this stuff – and it’s going to last me forever! Pick yours up now! Only $29!
