QVC's bareMinerals TSV - Love, California Complexion Rescue Kit


QVC's bareMinerals TSV for May 20th 2016


I preordered QVC's May 20th Today's Special Value to help you decide if you want to order it.  It's called Love, California Complexion Rescue Kit and it costs $54.96 or three payments of $18.32. That makes each piece cost only $7.85 and the entire kit has a $160.50 retail value! Bargain! Don't forget to use Mr. Rebates to get 3% cash back! This seven piece collection includes the following products:
  1. Complexion Rescue Advanced Mineral Veil Finishing Powder with SPF 20, .21 oz,  $21 approximate retail value
  2. All Over Face Color in Sunwashed Shell, .05 oz, $21 retail value
  3. Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in California Dreamer, .15 fl oz, $18 retail value
  4. Double Ended Buff & Blend Brush, $28 approximate retail value
  5. Smoothing Face Brush, $28 retail value
  6. Shoreline Eye Color, .02 oz, $15 retail value
  7. Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream with SPF 30, 1.18 fl oz, $29.50 retail value
The preorder number is A280928 or if you want it on auto-delivery the preorder number is A281908. On May 20th the item number will be A271994 or A/D A281908. The second delivery will be in August and the third will be sent in December. Those shipments will include new shades and brushes.

This collection is described as "inspired by sun filled days and warm, breezy nights in California, these beauty essentials help you achieve a healthy looking glow". I was disappointed that it doesn't come in a storage box nor a cosmetic bag like all of the previous bareMineral TSV have. The box shown in the above picture is a flimsy box which isn't strong enough to store everything in it long term. Also, the normal color brochure with application instructions has been replaced by a black and white folded piece of paper with very little information on it in tiny print. I love their brushes and their Marvelous Moxie Lip Glosses, so those are all winners. I'm excited to try the new Complexion Rescue Cream. It's suppose to have sheer to medium coverage with a natural looking finish. Since I have It Cosmetics foundation on now, I will update my review in a couple of days when I get a chance to try it. I purchased it in the lightest color which is Opal. Refer to Sephora or Bare Escentuals color charts to help you decide which one is best for your skin tone. If you order Opal, Vanilla or Buttercream you will receive the Fair-Light Mineral Veil and the Sunwashed Shell All Over Face Color. If you order Suede, Natural or Ginger you will receive the Medium Mineral Veil and the Sunglow Sand All Over Face Color. If you order Tan, Spice, Chestnut or Sienna you will receive the Tan-Deep Mineral Veil and the Sunset Plum All Over Face Color. 

Complexion Rescue Cream won the 2015 QVC Customer Choice Beauty Award for the Best New Innovation. The Complexion Rescue Advanced Mineral Veil Finishing Powder is exclusive to QVC. The All Over Face Color is customer top rated and offered in new exclusive shades. The Shoreline Eye Color is new and exclusive to QVC. The Buff & Blend Brush is also exclusive to QVC. In addition, the Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in the color California Dreams is new and exclusive to QVC. So what do you think, are you tempted to purchase this TSV?

Update - I'm still enjoying the foundation and have used it several times now. I like how it goes on so quickly with the brush and it doesn't require much buffing. I also like how it doesn't feel like I'm wearing makeup since it's so lightweight. But being so lightweight, it gives only light to medium coverage. Light coverage with one application and medium by dabbing on more where it's needed. A third application is worthless. It doesn't make wrinkles look worse on skin over 40 unlike the other two foundations they have come out with. The new Mineral Veil also doesn't make wrinkles stand out like the previous version does on skin over 30-35. I highly recommend the matching Complexion Rescue Mineral Veil since the foundation will look oily without it. As usual, the brushes are very nice and work well. Not real crazy about the All Over Face Color since it has a bit of a fine sparkle with a sort of opal look to it and it's so pigmented that it's difficult to not apply too much. The lip gloss is pigmented enough so that you can't see your natural lip color underneath which is nice and the color goes well with the eye shadow. I really like the eyeshadow color and the brush works really well with it. I've answered some questions about this kit in the comments section below, so check that out for more info.

  1. Hi~ Opal is the shade I'm considering, so I can't wait to read your review. I need extra coverage, but, can always add a concealer.

    1. It's described as sheer to medium coverage. I found it sheer to light. One quick application sheer, adding a bit more to areas that need it light. It's extremely light weight and perfect for days you want to apply your foundation quickly and not have to buff it in. It's like applying a moisturizer, not much application time and super light weight. It's not going to get rid of all of your redness. Of the three BE foundations, this one is best for those over 40, it doesn't settle in fine lines and doesn't make them look worse. It goes on a bit shiny and appears a bit oily even on dry skin, so the finishing powder is necessary to make it look matte. This Complexion Rescue Mineral Veil is definitely different than the original Mineral Veil. Any specific questions about it? I didn't need to use a concealer, but I don't have dark circles.

    2. Thanks! I think I may still get it even though I need coverage. I appreciate your review <3

    3. If you want more coverage put a dot of complexion rescue in the lid of your original foundation swirl and apply. I do that on days I need more coverage and it turns out great.

    1. You're welcome, Ann :) I don't know what changes they made to it, but I can definitely see a difference. It's SO much better. It doesn't sit in fine lines & wrinkles and accentuate them. I would recommend using it with the Complexion Rescue Cream since it's a bit shiny and this new mineral veil makes it matte. Yes, I recommend this kit, the only thing I'm not loving is the all over face color. It goes on too heavy, it's too pigmented and is better as a blush but it has a reflective pearl look especially in the sunlight and I don't like that in a blush.

  3. How is this mineral veil different than the original? What shade is the all over face color and the eye shadow? Thank you so much for your reviews. I'm trying to decide if I 'need' this. 😉

    1. As stated above "If you order Opal, Vanilla or Buttercream you will receive the Fair-Light Mineral Veil and the Sunwashed Shell All Over Face Color. If you order Suede, Natural or Ginger you will receive the Medium Mineral Veil and the Sunglow Sand All Over Face Color. If you order Tan, Spice, Chestnut or Sienna you will receive the Tan-Deep Mineral Veil and the Sunset Plum All Over Face Color". In the photo is Sunwashed Shell. Eye color is Shoreline.

  4. Hi Wendy,
    I'm over 40 and use Josie Maran's tinted moisturizer spf 47, have you ever tried this and if so, do you like Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue better? PS I love your blog : )

    1. Nope, haven't but would love to. Do you like it, how about wrinkles, does it make it worse? Yes, I'm really liking BE's and I can actually recommend it for those over 40 which is surprising. Can't say that about the other BE foundations, don't recommend for those over 35-40. Thanks so much, glad you are enjoying it. :)

  5. Hi Wendy,
    How does Complexion Rescue Cream compare to Josie Maran's tinted moisturizer spf 47? Which one do you like better?

    1. Haven't tried that one, so I can't compare. Do you like Josie's? I can compare to the other BE foundations and this one is best for not settling into fine lines and wrinkles and for those over 35. It has a very natural look if you use the new rescue mineral veil on top, otherwise it's a bit oily even on dry skin. Application time is less than the others. So far I'm really liking it.

  6. I like Josie's but it's oily also and the color can be a little orange. I am going to try the BE complexion rescue and I wanted to tell your blog is amazing! You've done such a great job and I wanted to thank you for taking the time to put all of this together. You're a Rock Star!

    1. Sorry for slow response, I missed this comment till now. Orange, yuck, hope you returned it. Yeah, Josie needs more colors to chose from before I can try it. If a brand only has a few to chose from it never matches my skin since I'm so fair. Thank you for the lovely compliments and you're most welcome, glad to help. :)

  7. I've been an IT girl for the last year and have been living in IT. I've always wanted to try Bare Minerals and plan to buy the TSV today. Since you have tried both, do you have a preference??

    Also, I love your blog and check in with you several times a month from sunny SoCal!

    1. I loved the BE powder foundation until late 30's, then it emphasized fine lines. Bare Skin also does that but not as bad, best with the use of the powder on top. Out of the 3 foundations, I like this newest one, Complexion Rescue the most. I would compare IT CC foundation most like BE's Bare Skin in coverage (medium to heavy) with IT being a bit thicker. Currently I'm loving Complexion Rescue the most and haven't used IT since. The main reason is it takes much less time to apply and it feels lighter. Being lighter it's also easier to remove. I don't need heavy coverage and light to medium coverage is just fine for me. I find I have to buff IT so much, sometimes I just don't have patience for it. Thanks, glad you like it. Haven't seen the sun for many days here so I envy you.
