Bare Minerals Haul


A few weeks ago I bought a 12-piece Beauty Surprise Collection from Bare Minerals (Bare Escentuals?–I never know which to call it).  It was a one-day deal on April 17, offering the 12-piece surprise valued at $177, for just $35.  I’m a sucker for a deal like that!

I haven’t tried everything in the package yet but I want to get this post up.  I know I’m always looking for info on what to expect in a mystery buy, I hope this is good info for other savvy shoppers.



Here’s what I got:

  • Cosmetics Bag in Silver
  • Full Taper Eyeshadow Brush in Rose Gold
  • Eyeshadow in Queen Phyllis (small)
  • Eyeshadow in True Gold (small)
  • Eyeshadow in Celestine (small)
  • Lash Domination Mascara (mini)
  • Buxom Hold the Line Waterproof Eyeliner in Call Me
  • Blush in Vintage Peach
  • Face color in Faux Tan (small)
  • Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Spark Plug
  • Limited Edition Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm in Crimson Pop
  • Jack of All Trades Lip Balm in For Keeps
  • Free sample:  Skinsorials sample card

All the eye products are a hit.  The shadow brush is great and I really like the eye colors.  I’ve been wanting some sparkly eye color and these are perfect for me.  I’m also excited about the mascara and eyeliner, which is a nice bold black, because I can never get enough of those.  I’m less excited about the lip products.  I’ll probably use the balm, which gives a nice moisturizing coat with a rosy red tint.  But I’ll almost definitely NOT wear the gloss.  I rarely wear a glossy lip nowadays, so while the Moxie gloss in Spark Plug is a nice color, it’s not the texture or the finish I like on my lips at this time.  The blush and face color I will probably use –they’ll work well with my mineral powder foundation.  Overall, I’m pleased with this haul and I’ll buy a Surprise Beauty Collection again sometime in the future.
