The insert that tells you whats in the box, and how to use it. I REALLY like the fact that everyone gets the same items.

Bare Minerals Bare Skin Sheer Sun Bronzer Serum

This was promising at first, but after a squeeze and a slight rub, it started almost pilling on my skin, and left no color what so ever. 2016-06-21-10.45.53.jpg.jpgIt also felt a bit oily, and wont play well with other makeup. It’s not something I’d want to wear if I knew I was going to be sweating all day.

Paige–  These were so fun to review! When Holly Jurick, of Younique products, sent these to me, I was very impressed by the presentation. The package came with a very cute hand written card, tips on how to use the products and how she creates her day looks, (which can be found on her Facebook page- Holly Johnson-Jurick ) and a card with the info for ordering or hosting a party at her Younique website- youniqueproducts.com/hollyjurick. The colors she sent were: Confidence (a dark coppery brown), Sexy (a bare pink shimmer), and Regal (a rich purple).  There is also an amazing fiber mascara (it was not included) that we all want to buy as soon as we can!

To the reviews!

Blake: I had really wanted to review this product, so it was an awesome surprise when my amazing cousin Paige sent me a pigment to review. This is just a great highlighter for me. I use it when I contour and when I want to highlight my eyebrows (which at the moment need to get done, lol).  I also mixed it with my eye shadow to add a pop for days that I just feel blah. I love that I can’t feel it but it’s there and that It has more than one use. Lets face it, make-up is expensive, so I want things that have more than one purpose or can provide me with more than one look. I absolutely love this product and want more !!!!!

Megs: I really like the color of this pigment.  It was rich and deep without being too sparkly.  Just a subtle shimmer.  It went on well and stayed well.  I haven’t tried blending it with other like pigments, but don’t think it would be too hard to do given how well it held. 🙂

Paige: This stuff was awesome! Stayed on all day with NO creasing, which NEVER happens for me. I was really impressed with the selection of colors available on the site. Holly knows me and my coloring, and sent 3 PERFECT shades to try. Two neutral and one awesome purple that I cant wait to wear again. I was lucky enough to be able to test all three and use some of her tips before I had to send them on to the rest of the girls to review.

The only good lighting I could find at 7:30 in the morning was by the coffee maker at work… go figure. Yes, I’m still half asleep

I tried these colors as mix-ins, blends, and single colors, as well as eyeliner, wet and dry. I also used the darker coppery color, Sexy, as a contouring powder. The pigments did it all, and with the color called Confidence, we even got some highlighter action out of it!

Check it out! It even works as a nail polish!

I even went a bit crazy and decided to try mixing some of that purple with a clear nail polish to see what would happen. It was beautiful! I’m sure that is not what these pigments are intended for, but its neat to see there is so much that can be done with them.

Talk about an amazing product with multiple uses. We all decided we need to try more. Also, because we are a sample review site, I have to give Holly props for sending out three colors and even though they are standard sample sizes, they will last us for a long time, because you just don’t need that much product to make a big impact.

Thanks Holly, I know we will be visiting your site soon to make some purchases!
