QVC's Bare Escentuals TSV - FOTD

As promised, here are the actual photos and swatches from the Bare Escentuals "Today's Special Value" I ordered on QVC the other day. I was so excited when I saw the colors in person - they are perfect colors for a light, smokey look without having to dip into blacks or silvers.

Bare Escentuals Blush "Courage"
Courage is a nice, warm but neutral coral color. It has a hit of shimmer, but not tons like True does. I really do like this color, as it adds just enough color to your cheeks! I used this with the angled blush brush that came in the kit, and love it. The brush is nice and fluffy, giving a very light coverage.

Bare Escentuals Eye Color "Idol" and "Hero"

These two colors compliment eachother very well. Idol is a deep lilac color, and Hero is a nice rosey mauve. I think that Idol would be a beautiful liner, as well, but in my FOTD below I used it as a crease and lid color to create a somewhat smokey look. Both have subtle shimmer, as you can see in the pictures above.

Swatches: Courage, Idol, Hero

Bare Escentuals Tinted Feather Light Mineral Veil
Don't be fooled by the picture above, as I'm sure this looks like "Warmth" with some shimmer, but it truely is a Mineral Veil. There is a subtle bit of color to it, as opposed to the sheer white that the normal Mineral Veil is. Also, because this is the feather light, it has a bit of shimmer - not a lot, but just enough to add a natural glow to the skin. I loved the tinted mineral veil because in the summer I get a little tan, and this doesn't take away from the color of my foundation.
My FOTD is below...
Bare Escentuals Foundation "Medium"
Bare Escentuals Tinted Feather Light Mineral Veil
Bare Escentuals Blush "Courage"
Loreal DeCrease Eyeshadow Primer
Bare Escentuals "Hero" - foiled - lid
Bare Escentuals "Idol" - foiled in crease - dry on outer corner of lid
Bare Escentuals "White Gold" - dry as high light
Bare Escentuals Eyeshadow/Liner "Humor" - applied wet to top and bottom.
Bare Escentuals Buxom Lipgloss "Zena"


  1. stunning! I love the eyes and the lip color. I wish the minerals weren't so messy, any tips on how to keep them contained? They seem to go everywhere when I apply.

  2. I usually tap the container over into the lid and then open it upside down (if there is a sifter), otherwise flip it back right side up and open the lid. There should be enough product on the lid to apply. This seems to keep a majority of it at bay, but there still is some that falls out. That is one thing I battle with when using mineral makeup - it definitely is messy! :)
