TRY. BELIEVE. LOVE. Prize Review! (with pictures)

Hi Bellasugaries!

After waiting a month to finally immerse myself in all that is BareEscentuals (my Try.Believe.Love prize),
I had given myself two weeks to try out the products and get their full effect. Oh boy, was it worth the wait! Although I probably wouldn’t be able to part with any of these goodies, there are a few that I’ve become absolutely addicted to!

1) bareVitamins Skin Rev-er Upper: I smooth this over my face right after washing up. My skin dramatically improved! Blemishes are now slim to none. With a hint of salicylic and glycolic acids, it really smoothed out my complexion and gave me a natural glow. It works great blended with a daily moisturizer as well!

2) bareVitamins Eye Rev-er Upper: This really brightens up my eyes and diminishes those dark circles I have underneath. Not only does it provide a soothing sensation with its cucumber extracts, it also has these little light reflectors that lets my eyes look rested and luminous.

3) bareMinerals 100% Natural Lipcolor – (Rose Crepe) - I’m not much of a lipstick girl, but I absolutely love this one! It’s 100% pure and natural and it is so incredibly moisturizing. It gives my lips such a pretty natural tint. It blends so perfectly with my true lip color that it doesn’t look like I’ve applied any product at all. Love it!

4) Buzz Latte Lip Balm- Mmm! The smell and taste of this product is so decadent. It has such a silky, creamy texture. It keeps my lips extra soft! I keep it on hand at all times.

5) Magic Wand Brushless Mascara- At first I didn’t quite understand how this mascara could successfully coat my lashes, but it truly reaches every single one! My lashes almost double in length! It great with the lower lashes as well!

And finally….
6) Classic Rock Flawless Diamond 9-Piece Color Collection..of course!! This collection was such a wonderful bonus to my Try.Believe.Love. prize. There were so many goodies inside the box. I love the pearl travel clutch; it fits perfectly in my handbag. The custom diamond makeup brushes are adorable. The Double-Ended mascara is too fun; the Diamond Beautifully Luminous Lashes end adds a subtle sparkle to my lashes that’s so inviting. The bareMinerals in the Classic Rock collection including white silver, chocolate diamond, white diamond, and peach diamond are so luminous. This incredible precious rock is sprinkled so finely in these blushes and eyeshadows. All the glimmer and glam can be perfectly achieved with this collection.

And now for some up close and personal shots! I applied a very subtle look with natural earthy tones with a hint of sparkle.

- Picture #1 includes an application of bareMinerals 100% Natural Lipcolor in Rose Crepe.

-Picture #2 includes an application of Buzz Latte Lip Balm as a base coat and bareMinerals 100% Natural Lipcolor in Rose Crepe.

-Picture #3 includes a coat of Magic Wand Brushless Mascara, a coat of Diamond Beautifully Luminous Lashes from the Classic Rock double-end mascara. and a brush of bareMinerals diamond infused glimmer in Nice Rock on the lids. (Ignore the eyebrow piercing scar; what a terrible decision!)

-Picture #4 includes an application of bareVitamins Skin Rev-er Upper.

-Picture #5 includes and application of bareVitamins Skin Rev-er Upper, bareMinerals face color in Warmth, bareMinerals Mineral Veil, bareMinerals blush in Golden Gate, bareMinerals 100% Natural Lipcolor in Rose Crepe, a coat of Magic Wand Brushless Mascara, a coat of Diamond Beautifully Luminous Lashes from the Classic Rock double-end mascara, and a brush of bareMinerals diamond infused glimmer in Nice Rock on the eyelids.

-Picture #6 includes a very happy Reece! I'm in love with this mineral makeup!

This Try.Believe.Love. prize has made me into an avid user and promoter of BareEscentuals. My skin is going to be living fresh and natural from now on. I hope you all have a chance to check out the products I’ve listed above and feel free to contact me with further questions about BareEscentuals products. If you'd like me to post more pictures wearing specific products, just let me know! Thank you BellaSugar, BareEscentuals, and Sephora!

Hi sugars! I am overwelmed with this incredible response to my review! All your comments were so so sweet; I never expected so many on my eyebrows ha! Verrry much appreciated! Modeling is far from my future though (over foot away!)...yup I'm only 4'11! :) I wanted to address some of the questions I found in your comments. Wren- The Mineral Veil makes a HUGE difference. It's the final and most important step to applying bareMinerals. It truly makes my skin look photoshopped! It fills in those enlarged pores and sucks up the extra oily spots! It a DEFINITE must-have... I've been using it for years now. 1love- Happy to hear from you again! I hope you're fully enjoying you're diamond luxurious! To address your question about the Warmth, it is amazing! It's a cross between a bronzer and a blush...very unique. I wear it everyday because it really lights up my face in a very natural way. You can totally adjust how light or how dark you want it to be on your skin. I typically wear a little bit more in the winter time to avoid looking too pale. During the summer I just apply light strokes of it all over my face and neck. You can achieve a really luminous glow that blends right in with your skin. No fake-bake look or orange tints. I highly suggest picking a jar up from Sephora soon! (one jar lasts FOREVER!) Thank you all again so much for your comments! I am thinking about posting some new pictures of a more dramatic look. Maybe one with an outfit that pairs well with it. Let me know what you think! Stay beautiful girls!

I'm going to have to agree with everyone are gorgeous! :) Thanks for the great reviews!! I just started using Bare Escentuals (I got one of the foundation/mineral veil kits for Christmas) but I haven't tried any of the lip/eye/cheek products. After reading this I might have to try them out too!

You're really pretty, and the haul looks great on you! I might have to check out BE myself now.

^ I meant " I do love their waterproof mascara..." I should really double check my spelling before clicking post,lol.

You look gorgeous! Seriously, you could be a model. I need to try the Skin Rev-er Upper products; I've always disliked BE after a bad color experience with it however I might change my mind and try a few of the products. I do live their water-proof mascara; I'm a allergy person with watery eyes and the mascara never gives me raccoon eyes,lol. By the way, your eyebrows look amazing!

Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing your reviews of the products. Did you think that the Mineral Veil makes a real difference? I've never tried BE, but now I want to!

Gorgeous both xoxov14 and the BE. I'm a BE lady myself for quite a few years. I love it. Although I'm a makeup girl, yours is so soft and sweet, I like to foil my shadows and add a bit more glimmer and shine to my face. I'm a bit older than you also, so I need it. Congrats on the win - I'm very jealous. The new format - not so crazy about. Everytime I change pages I have to re-login and/or the pages don't load correctly. Just my opinion.

Ah, OK, that makes sense. I'll try doing that tomorrow, 'cause I like how it looks on you.
xoxov14 xoxov14 8 years
aww thank you bella! :) I think it looks lighter in the pictures because I blended it with the Buzz Latte balm. I put it on straight, but I kinda lightly smudged it on to give just a bit of color. Just now, I put it on alone and it does looks darker. I love both looks though! Ha, mystery solved!
Beauty Beauty 8 years
Huh. I just put on Rose Crepe, and yep, it looks darker on me. Do you use a lip brush or do you put it on straight? I must get to the bottom of this mystery...
Beauty Beauty 8 years
YOWZA. You are, um, intimidatingly beautiful. Your eyebrows, your hair, your features. Wow! And I like how the makeup looks on you, very natural. The foundation doesn't look makeuppy, you know? It just looks like really pretty, healthy skin. I like the Rose Crepe lip color, too, but it's interesting — it looks different on you than it does on me. I have to go apply it now to compare. At 11:20pm. Yep, I'm a bit obsessed with makeup ;) Congrats again on your win! And lest I sound like a broken record, you look great.
