bareMinerals has launched their holiday gift sets and there are options for every personality and clean beauty preference, from iconic complexion favourites to bright pops of colour, to 100% vegan skincare. I am excited to share a few of the gift sets here, including skincare and makeup. To tell you the truth, I am really impressed with the collection of products in the gift sets and the festive packaging.
An important thing to note is that bareMinerals have made gifting planet-friendly by minimizing plastic across the holiday collection. They have eliminated unnecessary packaging, incorporated post-consumer recycled materials whenever possible and made our gift boxes completely recyclable. The holiday packaging is designed to look like wrapped gifts, all of the sets feature a hand-drawn, nature-inspired pattern and are ready to share — no gift wrap needed. Isn’t it amazing – I am loving the fun and festive packaging plus this initiative by the brand.
Poreless At Any Age is a limited-edition travel-size mini pore-refining starter kit that is suitable for all skin types. I have not tried this range from the bareMinerals yet and feel that this is the perfect size and time to try them. The Poreless range is rich in exfoliating superfruit acids and prebiotics to minimize the look of pores and give skin a healthy and fresh-looking holiday glow. In case you have already tried and love this range, the set is perfect to stock on for travel needs. The kit includes Mini Poreless Clay Cleanser (30ml), Mini Poreless Exfoliating Essence (50ml), and Mini Poreless Oil-Free moisturizer (50ml). This set is available at beautyBoutique by Shoppers Drug Mart and shoppersdrugmart.ca.
There are two lip sets that I am really enjoying from the holiday collection. Lip Balm Duo is a limited edition duo featuring the brand’s best selling lip balm in clear and a new rosy nude shade. The refreshing minty lip balms hydrate and nourish the lips without feeling heavy or tacky. Clear Lip Balm is good for everyone in the house while I am keeping the sheer rosy-tinted one for myself. This set is available at londondrugs.ca, London Drugs, and beautysense.ca.
Full-size BarePro Longwear Lipstick Duo is again one of the best selling formula from the brand and is launched in this limited edition package featuring a universally flattering warm rose shade and a new limited edition bold red shade. I have liked the formula of BarePro Longwear Lipstick in the past and excited to have it back in my makeup routine. It is full-coverage matte colour and is comfortable on the lips without making them dry. The formula has nice longevity without smudging and transferring (on the mask these days). This duo is available at Sephora and sephora.ca.
Strength & Length Mascara Duo Full size + Free Mini is a limited edition mascara gift set featuring a full-size clean, vegan mascara plus a free mini – to add length and lift to the lashes. The formula is infused with Red Clover Peptide Serum to maximize natural lash growth. I am excited to try the formula. This set is available at beautyBoutique by Shoppers Drug Mart, shoppersdrugmart.ca, londondrugs.ca, London Drugs, and beautysense.ca.
Finally, coming to the palettes – for eyes and face. Joyful Color Gen Nude Eyeshadow Palette is a limited-edition palette featuring 6 flattering neutral and plum tones. There are 3 shimmering neutral shades and 3 cool violets. The formula is smooth and creamy, blends easily, and is buildable. I did not feel it dry on the lids. The palette works very well for luminous neutral as well as a bold plum eye look.
The shades of the palette are described below (left to right):
Chai – rose beige
Cider – pink peach
Toasty – true bronze
Flash – cool lilac
Plum – rich plum
Velvet – deep charcoal
This Eyeshadow Palette is available at londondrugs.ca, London Drugs, and beautysense.ca.
Gen Nude Ombre Face Palette is a very versatile face palette that is all you need for a hint of holiday radiance – a natural-looking glow with a flush of soft-rose blush, matte mineral bronzing powder, and shimmering champagne highlighting perfect. The formulas very soft and creamy, apply and blend easily. It has light to medium buildable coverage and gives a beautiful natural radiant finish. This Face Palette is available at Sephora, sephora.ca, beautyBoutique by Shoppers Drug Mart, shoppersdrugmart.ca, londondrugs.ca, London Drugs, and beautysense.ca.
Overall, a really festive and fun collection with something for everyone – be it a skincare lover or a makeup lover.*Press samples
