bareMinerals Lovescape Collection Spring 2016!

Lovescape

Purchased by me

 

I pretty much can’t resist ANY collection bareMinerals launches. Such was the case when I saw the bareMinerals Lovescape Eye, Cheek & Lip Color Trio collection on QVC. The entire Lovescape 2016 Spring Collection is now available at Ulta.com, QVC.com, Sephora.com and Nordstrom.com.

“Escape into the look of love with bareMinerals(R) new special edition color collection. Glowing skin, eyes that glimmer with every flutter, and lips infused with passionate color–it’s a look alive with emotion.”

The 3-pc. collection was only $41 and includes:

Shades:

  • Whirlwind (opal peach)
  • Happenstance (desert)
  • Anticipation (radiant rose)
  • Meant to Be (shimmering espresso)

Powered by bareMinerals’ proprietary SeaNutritive Mineral Complex, it delivers skin-nourishing benefits including reduced appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and puffiness plus boosted moisture levels.

I truly love the Ready 4.0 eyeshadow formula: the texture is creamy, pigmented and easy to blend. I believe (correct me if I’m wrong) that these shades are new to line. They do have more shimmer than your typical ready eyeshadows, but I love the metallic sheen.

Whirlwind is a matte peachy cream beige, Happenstance is a pretty pale shimmery peachy gold, Anticipation is a gorgeous shimmery rose with silver micro shimmer and Meant To Be is a shimmery brown with iridescent micro shimmer. Happenstance and Anticipation both have fallout. I was able to lessen the amount by carefully patting the shadows on rather than sweeping with my brush. I HATE fallout so this was disappointing to me though I have to admit this has never happened with bareMinerals Ready shadows before. Truthfully, I am still debating how much this issue bothers me.

This color combination is perfect for spring and summer. I happen to be a fan of pink and brown eye looks and the combo really IS reminiscent of summer sunsets. The quad is definitely warm toned which lends itself to warm summer nights and bright springy days!

According to bareMinerals, the Stolen Heart is described as “luminous peach” which is it not. I also don’t find any of the shades suitable for a bronzer. That said, it has a lovely cool toned icy pink highlighter and a soft mauve blush that when swirled together creates a very pretty glowy cheek. The finish reflects light in a natural non-glittery way that is very flattering. Of course you can use the shades separately too. I had to layer the color twice to show on my fair skin so if you have a darker skin tone, this may not work well for you.

  • bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Chase Your Dreams – a limited edition shade of Marvelous Moxie in the shade Chase Your Dreams.

Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Chase Your Dreams, is a delightful mid-tone rose mauve with a touch of micro-shimmer sprinkled throughout, which adds a nice dimension to the lips. Marvelous Moxie lipstick is also a fav of mine for it’s creamy, hydrating texture and long lasting formula. Chase Your Dreams has just the right amount of sparkle to make it office appropriate while still having great color payoff. I can see this shade as flattering to all skin tones–a “my lips but better” on some skin tones.

Bottom Line: honestly, I’m on the fence with the bareMinerals Lovescape 2016 Spring Collection. Though it is a beautiful, flattering collection, I’m disappointed with the ultra shimmery shades and the fallout. On the other hand, the combination of shades make for a pretty summer sunset look!

What do you think? Should I keep the Lovescape eyeshadow quad or give it away to someone with less “mature” eyes?

    Gorgeous shades! I can definitely see why you jumped on these. I’d love them too!

  2. I haven’t bought a Bare Minerals product in so long but I could always add another blush product to my collection, lol.

  3. Pretty shades, but I’m with you, they would be too shimmery for me.

  4. The fallout is a bummer, but these colors are gorgeous. I’m loving this collex.

    I can’t deal with fallout. That’s the main reason why I do pro brands for eyeshadows.

  13. I love any quad with rose/pink eyeshadow, but too bad about the fallout.

  14. You look so pretty!

    I don’t mind a little fallout, if the shadow is gorgeous on the eye. I just do my eyes before my face. No sweat. 😀 That cheek colour is soooo pretty! I may have to grab that baby.

  15. These eye shadow shades look gorgeous! I love the look you created!

  16. The shadow quad is so pretty, I think I could deal with the fallout for it.
