Bare Escentuals On The Spot Review | Gentle Travel Eye Makeup Remover

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

Bare Escentuals On The SpotBare Escentuals On The Spot is a cool eye makeup removal. It is 24 soft cotton swabs filled with a solution that conditions skin as well as removing eye makeup. This formula is alcohol free and contains aloe Vera, so it shouldn't dry out skin.

Directions for use

Simple snap the swab at the colored ring to release the liquid into the tip. In a sweeping motion gently remove any unwanted makeup.

Users Conclusions

I have compiled the lists below from the opinions of the ladies using the swabs.


  • Quick and easy to use
  • Great for little touch ups
  • Even work on waterproof mascara
  • Good to put in your purse and take on a night out


  • Expensive for the amount of swabs


Water (Aqua), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E Acetate), Yellow 5 (CI 19140), Citric Acid.

To Sum Up

I love Bare Escentuals products and I think this is a brill invention, especially for traveling!

If you would like to buy Bare Escentuals On The Spot it costs $5. Which I don't think is a bad price unless you are going to use them every day, then they would end up being expensive.

Hydrating 100% Natural Lip Gloss Review | Bare Escentuals Creates High Shine Lip Color

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

Bare Escentuals Natural Lip GlossBare Escentuals is well known for it's amazing natural products. Personally, I think its an amazing company with exceptional products.

As expected this lip gloss is 100% natural, a big plus for those of you that are Eco friendly.

The natural ingredients like Cupuacu butter and Seed oil should help hydrate lips leaving them smooth , soft and non sticky. A subtle Vanilla fragrance is apparent with the gloss.

Bare Escentuals 100% Natural Lip Gloss is available in 12 different shades.

Contains no Preservatives or petro-chemicals seems to be a running theme that a lot of cosmetics have in common these days. While having more natural ingredients are a good thing, having no preservatives does mean they aren't going to last more than a few months or so. Just some thing to keep in mind.

Unfortunately Bare Escentuals did not include a SPF in this gloss, which can help stop lips from drying out as quickly.

Users conclusions

Below I have summarized the opinions of the ladies using Bare Escentuals lip gloss:


  • Nice Vanilla flavor/scent
  • High shine
  • Shimmers
  • Moisturizing
  • Long lasting
  • Non sticky


  • Feather and bleed ( one users opinion)
  • No SPF


All shades contain:Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Oleic/Linoleic/Linolenic Polyglycerides, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Brassica Campestris/Aleurites Fordi Oil Copolymer, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Flavor (Natural Vanilla), Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Wax, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Sorbitan Olivate, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Beeswax (Cera Alba), Tocopherol, Theobroma Grandiflorum (Cupuacu) Seed Butter, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Silica, Glyceryl Caprylate. (+/-): Mica, Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Carmine (CI 75470).

To Sum Up

All in all Bare Escentuals have created yet another fabulous product. Most patrons found the gloss to moisturize, last, shine and be non sticky.

There was one lady who said the gloss wasn't for her, as it feathered, was sticky and she didn't much like the Vanilla fragrance.

Some fanatics think it is a little expensive at $15 a tube considering it doesn't contain any SPF. However, most said they would buy it again.

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

Bare Escentuals bareMinerals SPF 25 Mineral VeilMineral Veil by Bare Escentuals is a natural powder that gives your makeup a finished airbrushed look, says B.E anyway.

It is formulated with an SPF 25 for sun protection, which is one of the most important factors for me when choosing makeup.

This powder also helps eliminate shine, therefor making skin appear mattified. It should help minimize fine lines and pores, while lasting all day long.

There are 2 options for Mineral Veil, either the translucent powder or a lightly tinted shade for a bit of color. Both are suitable for all skin tones.

Like other most other Bare Escentual products Mineral Veil doesn't contain Parabens- Sulfates- Synthetic Fragrances- Synthetic Dyes- Petro-Chemicals- Phthalates, so good for those of you that like to keep it natural.

Users Conclusions

I have summarized below users opinions of Mineral veil from


  • Sheer coverage
  • Sun protection
  • Oil absorbing
  • Flawless finish
  • Lightweight
  • Natural


  • Pasty looking skin (one ladies opinion)


Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Corn Starch Modified, Zinc Stearate, Silica, Magnesium Stearate. MAY CONTAIN: Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides.

To Sum Up

It was hard to find any bad comments about Mineral Veil, there was just one lady who said it makes her look pasty and pale.

However, most other bareMinerals fanatics aspire to it, saying it gives flawless coverage, provides sun protection, is natural looking and lightweight.

Patrons think it is reasonably priced at $19 a pop considering it does so much.

Bare Escentuals Angled Brow Brush Review | Precision Goat Hair To Fill Brows

Saturday, August 21st, 2010

Bare Escentuals Angled brow brushBare Escentuals Angled Brow Brush is designed for the use of bareMinerals brow color. This arched brush should make it quick and easy to fill brows, leaving them looking natural. It is made from a blend of Taklon fibers and goat hair.

When filling the brows I think it is better to use a angled brush as it is more precise and gives a natural looking brow.

Users Conclusions


  • Quick and easy to use
  • Provides a natural shape
  • Short stiff bristles


  • A little expensive
  • Made from goat hair


This brush is also good for applying powder eye shadow along the lash line as a eyeliner.

To Sum Up

Overall the comments on this brow brush are pretty positive. Most Bare Escentuals fans think it is easy to use and like the stiff short bristles. Some users don't like that it is made from goat hair, they would prefer it to be synthetic.

The price is a little on the high side just for a brow brush at $12, but many users agree that it is a good quality brush.
