After my recent venture into Bare Minerals (post here), I was introduced to some gorgeous products perfect for summer and just had to share them as they create such a gorgeous, fresh and effortless look, perfect for summer.
The Complexion Rescue tinted hydrating gel cream* (RRP £26), with SPF 30, is a great multi-tasking product as the lightweight, skin-quenching gel cream provides just the right amount of coverage whilst creating a dewy, healthy glow. New to the UK Bare Minerals collection, the gel combines skincare benefits and naturally radiant coverage in one product, combining the best of a BB, CC and a tinted moisturiser, with a 215% increase in skin hydration after just one week of use. The tinted gel claims to give a lightweight sheer to medium coverage and I agree with this claim, I find it works best when blended into the skin using clean fingers and is certainly buildable. With 10 available shades I was matched to the palest shade, 01 Opal which works perfectly with my skintone and provides the perfect amount of coverage for me! Overall I have been loving this product and it was perfect on my holiday, during the day on the beach and built up in the evenings too.
Also new in to Bare Minerals are their Pop Of Passion products, including a limited edition blush balm* in 3 shades and lip oil-balm* in 8 neutral to bright shades. The lip balm (RRP £16) is a really lovely product that provides more colour than any tinted lip balm I have tried before! The decadent, oil-rich lip oil-balm (what a mouthful), hydrates, nourishes and delivers a lovely luscious slick of colour that brightens any look. The formula includes Jojoba oil, sunflower oil and passion fruit seed oil with vitamin e, which feels totally luxurious and comfortable on the lips. Once the gloss wears off after a few hours, you’re left with a perfect tint, and is the perfect summer accessory. The limited edition blush balm (RRP £20) is a product I was really excited to try as it is so smooth and creamy, meaning application is simple and fuss free. The formula is super hydrating and nourishing whilst being the perfect size to travel with and can double up as a lip tint, perfect. I have the shade Posy Passion and it is perfect for summer and love to use it for both day and night makeup looks.
