Review: I am always attracted to sheer to light formulas and products that mimic the natural glow of the skin. I have never dipped into any Bare Minerals products before since I was skeptical that some of the ingredients may cause my sensitive skin to breakout. Since purchasing the new Nars Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer and the Makeup Forever Pro Bronze Fusion Bronzer - I fell in love with the sheer but buildable wash of color (and of course natural-looking) it provided. So when I was wandering through the aisles at Ulta, I spotted these babies. I immediately fell in love with the undertones of these bronzer and their sheer but buildable formula. I picked up the shade Tan first and came back to get the Medium shade a couple of weeks later. I am not sure if this is a new release or not since I am not a frequent Bare Minerals buyer, but this is definitely new to me.
The packaging is in a nice, glossy finish black box with the brand printed in a copper-gold color typography. The shade of the product is printed on the top of the box opening. The compact itself is a glossy black plastic material. The compact has a decent weight to it, of course, it is plastic but it does not feel cheap. The compact has a mirror inside and contains .24 oz or 7g of product. This is a very decent amount of product for its price as most non-drugstore bronzers I own are priced at $30 and up with the same amount or less (Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer has 5.5g of product at $30 housed in a cardboard packaging).
I have no complaints about the formula. It did not break me out. It also did not make my face oily, as most mineral ingredients can do so. The sheer wash of product (but buildable) looks fresh and natural on the skin. It blend effortlessly if you build it up. It does not make the application cakey or powdery. It also give the skin a nice glow but without the shimmer.
Would I Repurchase? I already have two!
