More Bare Minerals..

Flawless Definition Mascara-

This is only a sample size of the mascara but I was given 2 , which is almost the size of the full mascara I think (happy days!) I have to start of by saying I usually hate spiky plastic bristles because every time I try to use them I end up poking it into my eye, but I actually really like this one! I have short black eyelashes so I like to combo my mascaras to get a more intense look. This mascara is paraben-free and fortified with antioxidants and conditioning extracts which is why my eyelashes don't dry out during the  day. This mascara actually does what it claims to do, as it really gives length and definition to my eyelashes without clumping, at the moment I am using this and the my maybelline 'the volum' falsies flared' which gives it a really dramatic look :) I also use it Lancome Doll eyes which I also got 2 samples of! I would recommend this mascara if you are looking for a natural look or if you want to look like you have naturally long and defined lashes. This mascara retails at approx. €20 :)
Overall, I think this is a really nice natural mascara and combos really well with other mascaras but since I prefere more dramatic looking lashes I'm not sure if I will purchase once this one is gone as I will than also need to buy another 'volume' mascara :)

The Faux Pas Blush-

This is a natural pretty pink blush, The colour looks really nice on the skin, gives a healthy 'flush' and the colour is build able , having said that for the price I would have thought it would be a bit more pigmented, this blush stays put well though. The bareMinerals' READY blush contains proprietary SeaNutritive Mineral™ Complex with antioxidants and cold-pressed camellia oil and also comes in a wide variety of shades ranging from pink shades to bronze :) Bare Minerals claim that the blushes "deliver skin-nourishing benefits for softer, smoother skin while enhancing cheeks with a gorgeous flush of lasting colour", and I do believe that my skin feels softer with a long lasting colour when applied. I really like the idea behind the 'Ready' as when your in a rush minerals seem to spill everywhere! I apply this blush using a regular fluffy brush as I think the compact one can give a streaky effect and it's not the most skin friendly of brushes :P This blush retails for approx. €26.
Overall, I believe this to be a nice blush but at €26 a pop , I think you would be able to find blushes that compare to this one colour-wise for a fraction of the price :)

So far I am really impressed with Bare minerals products!
