bareMinerals All The Faves Gift Set

 Browsing through blogs and stores, you see loads and loads of beauty gift sets, but one that has REALLY impressed me this year is this one from bareMinerals called All The Faves.

All The Faves contains just that - all the beauty lovers' favourites from the brand but in mini sizes (it WILL make you say, "AWWWWW!" multiple times). I think it's an absolute genius idea on bareMinerals' behalf and not only encourages the brands' loyal followers to give this set a go, but for people unfamiliar with the brand to trust the products in there as tried, tested and loved!


I suppose it was only natural then, that I've been impressed with most of the products in the set. Here are the quick thoughts regarding the products..

bareMinerals Mineral Veil
A brand favourite that offers many people that soft-glow effect. Unfortunately, it hasn't completely won me over, but it's a nice translucent powder nonetheless.

bareMinerals Ready Blush in The One
Very impressed with this one - the shade is a universal toned down pink, and the formula is blendable and long-lasting!

bareMinerals Prime Time
You guys know how I feel about this baby. Check it out here.

bareMinerals Prime Time for Eyes
VERY VERY impressed with this one! It's super easy to blend, and works like a dream. I usually use up eyeshadow primers before I buy new ones, and this will definitely be one of the contenders once my current one is finished.

bareMinerals Moxie Lipgloss in Sparkplug
Again - you guys know my thoughts on this. The Moxie lipglosses literally are the best pigmented cream lipgloss out there, which covers your lip evenly, smoothly and it's so unintrusive - i.e. it's not too sticky or light - it's just perfect. Read more here. The shade Sparkplug is also my favourite shade I've seen so far, because it's a slightly pale natural pink.

bareMinerals Lash Domination Mascara
This was a let down for me, BUT - 99% of mascaras are for me because my lashes are just that stubborn. Aside from me, everyone seems to love this so look elsewhere for a more representative review :)

bareMinerals Moxie Lipstick in Get Ready
Again, you can ready about my thoughts on the formula here. The shade is a dark pink which is gorgeous and very universal!

bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 in The Epiphany
I've been dying to try the Ready Eyeshadow 2.0, and I have to say my impressions are good. The pigmentation is fantastic, it's super blendable and it lasts ages but I also find the formula has a bit of fall out.



Overall, this box has an incredible selection of products - all great products in all universally flattering shades. I'm also quite glad to have so many mini products because they'll be super useful for travelling! If you know someone who has never tried bareMinerals, this is a great set because all the colours are all inoffensive and the products are great. It's also great for your own Christmas list for a new brand discovery and mini versions for your on-the-go make up bag :)

The All The Faves Gift Set retails for £36 - it's now 10% off at Debenhams!
