QVC's bareMinerals TSV - Fall 2014

bareSkin Beauty - Radiant 7-Piece Collection for Face, Eyes & Lips

Above is the TSV in the color "Bare Shell" for September 15th on QVC. It comes in twelve shades. Use the shade chart to find the right color for you. I preordered it last week for $54.98 in three payments of $21.91 after tax and shipping. That works out to only $7.85 per item before tax and shipping which is an awesome price for anything from bareMinerals! That doesn't include the 5% back from Mr. Rebates. The foundation and it's brush alone cost $57 retail.

I was very anxious to try out their new liquid foundation since the reviews are quite mixed. I'm happy to report that I really like it a lot and it will be my current foundation. I use five drops, using one drop at a time per quadrant of my face. The last drop is used for any parts that need just a bit more. It immediately covers my redness which other foundations have failed to do without much more product and application time. The brush is very soft and works well with this thin foundation. I didn't find the product sunk into the brush nor was it absorbed like others have reviewed. The foundation sat on top of the brush and I dabbed it on at first then brushed it in. Application is very quick due to it being very thin and needs less brush strokes than thicker foundations. I used the original bareMinerals power foundation for about ten years but gave it up about two years ago when I thought it was making my wrinkles more pronounced. I started using Tarte foundation instead and it was ok for awhile, but it magnifies any dry spots. I find this foundation is easier & faster to apply a thin coat for a more natural look than the powder version. It feels like a moisturizer on rather than a foundation which I love. I also didn't find it oily like others have, but my skin does tend to be dry especially in the winter if I'm not religious with my moisturizers. I found this foundation doesn't require a primer which is great for when you are in a rush and need to skip some steps to get out the door quicker.

I never tried the compact version of Mineral Veil before and found it to work well especially for on the go. It has a nice mirror for on the go and features a magnetic closure. It comes with a sponge applicator, but I've never been a fan of those since they seem to take off more product than it applies.  The blush brush works well with the mineral veil and blush. The Vintage Carnation blush and the Natural Beauty Marvelous Moxie lip gloss are in lovely burgundy fall colors. The Marvelous Moxie is quite opaque for a lip gloss and has pretty good staying power. The eye shadow goes on well with the other side of the blush brush, but does require primer! A step you will not want to skip. It's a shimmer of a cinnamon brown color called Luminous Umber.

I'm very happy with my purchase and recommend you give this set a try. If you order it, don't forget to use Mr. Rebates for cash back!  It's currently 5% back. Do you plan on purchasing this set or have you already?  Stay tuned for a list of the QVC October TSV preorder numbers tomorrow.
