BareMinerals All the Faves Set


BareMinerals All the Faves Set

I have been looking at the BareMinerals All the Faves Set since all of the Holiday sets came out.  So, when I saw it on sale at Ulta, I went ahead and snatched it up.  I don’t have much experience with BareMinerals.  In fact, I’m not sure that I’ve used any BareMinerals products in the past.  I’ve really been wanting to try the brand, though, especially the eyeshadow.  I’ve heard such great things, and this is the perfect set to experiment with.


BareMinerals All the Faves Set

BareMinerals All the Faves Set includes 8 try-me sizes of their best selling customer favorites.  From the BareMinerals website: “This stunning collection includes eight tried-and-true favorites, including our famous finishing powder and foundation primer, and brand new innovations like our new powerhouse mascara and lipstick with an attitude. Each is sized just right, whether you’re trying something new, stocking up on portable must-haves, or doing a little bit of both.”

This Collection Includes:

  • Mini Original Prime Time Foundation Primer (4.5 mL tube)
  • Mini Original Prime Time Eyelid Primer (1.5 mL tube)
  • Small Mineral Veil finishing powder (0.75g)
  • bareMinerals READY Blush The One (nude pink) (2 g)
  • bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0 The Epiphany featuring A-Ha and Foreshadow (brown sugar/brown truffle) (1 g)
  • Mini Lash Domination 10-in-1 Volumizing Mascara in Intense Black (5.5 ml)
  • Mini Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Get Ready (warm rosy pink) (1.5 g)
  • Mini Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Sparkplug (dusty pink pearl) (2.25 ml)

BareMinerals All the Faves Set- Color Cosmetics

Here’s a better look at the blush, eyeshadows and lipstick, since you can’t see what shades they are in the packaging.  The Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Get Ready is a medium classic pink.  The Ready blush in The One is a beautiful, matte, natural pink shade.  It’s light, but not so light that it doesn’t show up on the skin.  The Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 in Epiphany is gorgeous.  A-Ha is a metallic brown sugar shade that really packs a punch.  Foreshadow is a dark matte brown that reminds me a little of NARS Coconut Grove, but creamier, and not so blackened.  Honestly, this set is worth it, just for the shadows and blush.  I didn’t include the Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Sparkplug because you can see the shade through the tube, but I did include it in the swatch picture below.


BareMinerals All the Faves Set- swatches

Here is a swatch of the color cosmetics.  Sparkplug is on top, followed by Get Ready.  Underneath that, from left to right, is The One, A-Ha, and Foreshadow.  I am really happy with my BareMinerals All the Faves Set.  I don’t know that I would be willing to pay the full price of $36 for it, though.  As much as I am enjoying all of the items, they obviously are small because they are try-me sized.  I was much happier to find the set on sale for $25.  It’s a great sampling of the brand, and it allows me to try certain products that I’ve been wanting without having to pay full price.  The BareMinerals All the Faves Set is sold out online, but I called my local Ulta store, and they still have the sets in stock.  If you are interested, I’d call before you go, just to be sure.  The set wasn’t an Ulta exclusive, so you may be able to find it other places where BareMinerals is sold.

I am a self proclaimed eyeshadow junkie whose main hobbies include shopping, reading, singing, and mainlining caffeine while hanging out with my friends. I love interesting socks and have amassed quite a collection. The place that I want to visit before I die would be Greece. I like to read all seven Harry Potter books once a year the way some people read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. (Sorry JRRT, but JKR kicks butt in my book.) I love art, and use my creativity in many different ways through painting, crafts, and makeup. I love to cook and try new things, and I especially love to eat. My favorite "date" is to go wine tasting, and do so with my husband once or twice a year. I love musical theater and think the world would be much better off if we all just watched more musicals. I am 100% a cat person and, although I think dogs can be really cute and sweet, they make me sneeze so cats will always rule. I love faeries and magic, mythology, theology, philosophy, and psychology. I regularly do logic puzzles and sometimes crosswords. I adore Bette Midler, Betty White, and Carol Burnett. I am not ashamed to admit that I watch Glee. I would like to start making some of my own clothes because I can't stop myself from buying fabric. I'm sure that there is much more, but I'm suddenly distracted by something shiny.

  1. Looks like a really nice set, and that’s awesome that you got it on sale! I haven’t tried many Bare Minerals products, but I do have a little eyeshadow palette I bought last year at the holidays, and I really like it. The shadows are such great quality! 🙂
