bareMinerals Get Started Complexion Kit Review

A few weeks ago I picked up the bareMinerals Get Started Complexion Kit in fairly light and I thrilled with it!

I know bareMinerals has been around forever and I’ve gotten other brands of mineral make-up but I never got an actual bareMinerals kit. Now that I have one it’s a staple!


What’s to love?

First I love the kits. You basically get a smaller version of each product so that you can try it out but I imagine this kit will last a good couple of months because you use such a small amount.

I also love that you get a high quality brush. I really think all kits should come with a brush!

Everything comes in this really cool zip close pack with a mirror so you can use this as travel bag too.

What’s in the kit?

Aside from the brush you get…

Prime Time Original Foundation Primer – This clear liquid gel applies as a primer for under your make-up. I can take or leave primer as my face is oily I tend to not use them. This one is non-oily and does have plant extracts, antioxidants and vitamins.

BareMinerals Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15  – This is the staple of the kit and of the bareMinerals line. It’s a super fine mineral powder that you apply to your face. I love this powder. I use it under my make-up for a beautiful oil free finish.

You also get the Matte version of this foundation – I like to switch back and forth depending on the day.

Mineral Veil – The Mineral Veil is my favorite product in the kit. I use this light powder all over for a super smooth look. It really does minimize the look of my pores too. I will definitely be getting the full size product soon.

Eye Color – Honey Blossom – I like to apply bareMinerals eye color with a brush. It’s super light and looks luminescent and beautiful. Honey Blossom has specks of gold and looks amazing alone with just a bit of black mascara!

So overall I love this kit and have been using at least some part of it everyday. I will be trying more bareMinerals soon!

  1. I love kits too! It’s an easy way to try out a brand. Ulta offers a lot of the higher end make up staples in travel sizes.

    Bare minerals was my first makeup brand I ever used! I used a similar starter kit and loved it!
