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.

  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! :)
