POWER OF GOOD
You might have seen on my Insta stories last month that BareMinerals invited me in to the Glasgow store for a makeover by the amazing Gina, using the brand new COMPLEXION RESCUE™ Hydrating Foundation Stick for a flawless base.
I wasn’t totally sure I’d like a foundation stick – I have some bad memories of the infamous pan stick make up circa 2003 – but this is totally different!
BAREMINERALS FOUNDATION STICK
First impressions: I couldn’t believe how hydrating the foundation was on the skin, which Gina explained is down to the new wonder product being made with over 30% mineral water.
The vegan-friendly foundation is actually the first clean, water-based liquid foundation in a stick with SPF 25.
To get the perfect base, Gina used the new dual-sided silicone and sponge applicator – it’s really different to any other foundation sponge I’ve used and comes in a little plastic zip bag, keeping it clean in my make-up bag.
Of course, what’s a good make-up look without good skincare? I discussed my skin concerns with Gina during my appointment as I just seem to suffer from quite a lot of break outs, especially when I’m stressed.
Among the stand-out products Gina recommended were the Skinlongevity Vital Power Eye Cream, Skinlongevity Moisturizer and the Smart Combination™ Smoothing Lightweight Emulsion.
The BareMinerals team kindly sent the products out to me after the appointment for me to try out and I love how hydrating they feel on my skin. It’s also worth noting that BareMinerals products are clean, including being paraben and cruelty-free.
I’m 100% packing the products for my trip to Italy later this month – the foundation stick will be a saviour for on-the-go touch-ups whilst we run around Florence eating as much pizza as possible!
Have you tried any of the BareMinerals products I’ve shared? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
