Give the Girl a Magnifying Glass : Bareminerals Glee All Over Face Color
Feb 13, 2008
Review by Caprig
Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:translucent, pretty, easy to use
Cons:does not show up on my skin
The Bottom Line: Beautiful idea, if it would only show up on my skin! Perhaps a really light complexion would fare better with Glee.
I am a makeup artist. I have access to some of the most beautiful face enhancers that I have ever seen right now. I am used to using a light hand and achieving some wonderfully different looks with a swipe of a brush.
Recommend this product?
I also have quite a few of the Bareminerals products- foundation, eyeshadows, face colors, and much more.
I have to say that this is one of the products that I am not impressed with much.
WHAT IS GLEE LIKE?
GLEE All Over Face Color is supposed to be used like a finish over your makeup base to give you some color.
Here is what SEPHORA.COM says about it
bareMinerals All-Over Face Color
bareMinerals All-Over Face Colors provide a natural luminosity that is similar to the dewiness of a child's skin. Sweep these illuminating minerals on your cheeks, forehead, and chin for an instant goddess glow.
Okay, I have tried this several times, and I just do not see much of a difference.
My skintone is a medium to medium beige skintone and I am finding that this just does not show up on me.
I have kept it to play around with it some more and perhaps someone with much fairer skin will come along that I can use it on and it will be wonderful.
I did not have it turn orange on me, but then again, I would not know because I could not see it!
Contents: 0.1oz product
What it comes in- a black top screw on container, with a clear bottom and a shaker top inserted.
HOW DO YOU APPLY GLEE?
Let's pretend that you can see this product. To apply, you simply tap a little bit of product in the lid and then swirl the face brush round and round to load it up into the brush.
You can brush it all around your face, or only on certain areas- it is up to you what you want to do with it.
You can use a bit more product and go over it again, or a different brush.
I tend to prefer the MAC 183 brush which gives me a much more professional finish - better than the Bare Escentuals brushes.
Although this is a good idea, on me it does not do much. Perhaps someone that is fairer than I would appreciate it more. For the price, make sure you can return if you don't like it.
I will continue to experiment with it and if I figure out how to make it work, I will update this review.
