Phrases Chosen: beautiful, big!!
I have been eyeing this beautiful luminizer since last month when it was in the preview sale. It is so gorgeous! it reminds me a lot of the Adrenaline rush color boost that i have from bare minerals. But the colors in this lumizer aren't as dark as the color boost. They are much more softer. but you could be able to use the 2 compacts together. The color body as a blush/bronzer and this lumizer as a highlight and as an all over face and body powder/color after swirling the colors together. You could also use the colors individually as eye shadows. The colors in this compact don't have a shimmer, instead it has more of a sheen. the best part of this compact is that fact that it comes with this soft and fluffy brush. I hope bare Minerals come out with more compacts like this. I'm in love!

I fell in love with this when i saw it in the preview sale, but waited until it came into ULTA to buy it. OMG!!! This READY Luminizer is HUGE!!! The brush that it comes with is big, fluffy, and super soft as well. The colors in it aren't shimmery, but have more of a sheen to them instead to give a nice glow. The box it comes with is big as welI. So, It will be nice to reuse for storing makeup or other items. I Showed this luminizer in a video i did on Youtube. Showing swatches as well. If you would like to take a look at it, please fell free and hopefully you find it helpful! i also hope you found this written review helpful as well. :)

Great Deal! Great Set!

I remember this set being sold last year, and i was sad that i had missed out on it when it sold out. Of course when I saw Bare Minerals bring it back for this holiday, you know I had to get it! They changed 3 things with this set if you are curious.. 1. They switched out the 100% natural lipgloss with the moxie lip gloss. 2. The mascara is switched from the curl and lengthen mascara to the flawless definition volumizing mascara. 3. the packaging is now silver instead of gold.
This set overall is a great deal. verything in it is FULL SIZE!!!! All for $49!!! I really like the Heirloom eyeshadow. It's a matte grey with goldish green glitter. It sounds like a weird color but it is really pretty. because of the glitter, the grey looks like it changes colors from grey to olive green depending on the lighting.
Overall, this is a MUST HAVE set! You won;t regret the purchase of this. Oh! and it also comes in this gorgeous box! You could reuse the box as a way to store makeup! It's really nice. I made a video showing swatches of the Items in this set as well as showing the set in its entirety. If you would like to see, then please feel free to watch the video below! I hope you enjoy it and found it helpful!

If you are really into glittery/shimmery glosses than this set is right up your alley. All the colors have a good pigment to them except the yellowish one called Crowd Pleaser. The Only thing that i disliked about this set was the packaging. Bareminerals could have done better with it. No matter how you try to take out the glosses, they either fall all over the floor or fall back in the box. Otherwise, the glosses are nice. I took swatches of these glosses in my Youtube video. The pictures of them are true to color and taken in natural lighting. So if you would like to see the REAL colors of them then please watch the video! Enjoy!

Hot to Trot is a really nice set to have! Not only is it a great deal, but there is a good range of colors. You have everything from a Sparkling champagne color to a dark plum. Also a couple of the shades have a beautiful pearlescent finish. The rest are have some or a lot of shimmer/glitter. I did swatches of these lipglosses in a video i did on Youtube! If you would like to them, please take a look and enjoy the video! :)

Phrases Chosen: pretty good, nice combo of colors
I was really excited to buy this color boost. It's ver versatile and can be used in place of "warmth", or with "warmth" depending on how you want your look to be. it's supposed to be used on cheek bones, forehead, temples, nose, and anywhere else the sun hits your face naturally. I applied this on my face after finishing my youtube video talking about this color boost. It came on very light and subtle. I'm not sure if this product will show on darker skin tones, but for medium to light skin tones it will show. the color is very subtle. I recommend this for medium to light skin tones, but not for darker skin tones :/. I did a youtube video showing swatches for this product. Hopefully you all found this review and my video helpful!

This mascara actually separated my lashes (almost all of them) and added volume! It applied evenly. I applied 2 coats and had no clumps! I even compared it with The waterproof volumizing mascara. I did a youtube video on this mascara. the comparison photos and video showing the comparison are near the end of the video. but please feel free to watch all of the video. Here's the link:

Is this packaged for gift giving, or does it arrive with items loose?
For instance- the sets sold in Sephora are contained in small plastic boxes that are easy to drop into a gift bag, etc.
No, it comes in a cute box. so, all the items aren't loose. and the box it comes in can be reused in a drawer for storing little things . :)

Is this set customizable?
I can't find anywhere to do so, but it is categorized under custom sets.
No it's not customizable. everything you see in the picture is what you get. plus, it comes with a nice silver box (not pictured). But it's a really nice set and well worth the price!

bareMinerals READY Color Boost The Adrenaline Rush
 
I have fair skin w/ pink undertones. Will this color look good on me or is it more for darker and olive skin tones?
I have fair skin w/ pink undertones. Will this color look good on me or is it more for darker and olive skin tones?
I personally think it is a universally flattering color. i am olive toned but more on the lighter side. but since this is a nude peach, and you have a pink undertone, this color will look great on you...trust me ;)

Does it come in brown? If not, why not?
I have brown hair and eyes and I prefer brown mascara.
I went to a bare minerals boutique and the sales rep said that so far the mascara only comes in extreme black for now. I'm not sure if they will have it come out in brown later on.
