I have really missed writing here and reading all of your wonderful reviews. It’s been a while since I have written on IMBB, and that’s because I was on vacation! But I’m going to be quite a regular now, because I have a ton of products to review. As you all know, I’m pale skinned. Being fair, with a glow is different – but on most winter days, I come off as white and pale. So, I was on hunt for a good bronzer that would give me a subtle and healthy glow (I was missing summer a little!). I found just that at bareMinerals when I went to try on some make up. The “bareMinerals All Over Face Color – Warmth,” is a clear multitasker. It is a bronzer, a subtle foundation, a blush and an eye shadow. You have already understood I love it? Read more to know why 🙂
19 USD for 0.05 oz.
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.
Packaging: The small container comes with a black lid. Once you open the lid, you will have to be extra careful to dispense very little product. Even for heavy contouring, make sure you don’t waste any product while dipping a brush into it. Just skim your brush in the product to get the right amount.
Texture: The powder is super fine and goes on your skin like a dream. A little product can be spread till it almost disappears, or it can be built to enhance the color. It will not look cakey or powdery. Spread it with your fingers or with a brush, no qualms here.
Color: This product comes in 7 shades. I got the one named “Warmth.” The color is most similar to cocoa powder with a hint of shimmer. The color stands true to its name – it gives you a warm, subtle and healthy glow. Your skin will look sun-kissed, like the Victoria’s Secret models’ – who doesn’t want that? 😛
My Experience with bareMinerals All Over Face Color – Warmth:
I first used this as an all-over face powder for an outdoor wedding one morning. Apart from giving my skin a sun-kissed glow, it absorbed the oil on my face right up! I wouldn’t say it was perfectly matte, but my skin had a glow, not shine. The coverage was minimal; I didn’t expect any from it. If you have just slight freckles from the sun, use just this and you’re good to go. However, do not use your fingers for using this as a face powder. Use a good brush to dispense the color subtly and evenly.
If you have this, you don’t need a n*de-brown blush. This is perfect and buildable for light to medium skin tones. The shimmer will add a little sparkle to your face and the chestnut color will give your pale skin a flush of healthy color. For contouring or as a bronzer, your just have to build up the product a little, it will still look natural and not cakey.
More than anything else, this product serves to me as an everyday eye shadow. The color will blend perfectly well into your skin and give you a hint of shimmer. It will look like you were naturally born with beautiful eyelids like that.
When there are so many advantages to this product, it is an obvious buy. I think this is perfect for you, or as a gift. There may be other colors for a darker skin tone, but this one will look beautiful for light to medium skin.
I bet this can be used in summer because it feels very light on your face. The product will last you for a year even if you use it every day, so you do get a bang for your buck!
The only complaint I have is the packaging; I cannot afford to accidentally drop this product, as it does not have an inner lid to protect it; however, the newer one’s do. The newer ones come with an inner lid that has holes to dispense the product making it much easier to use. So that is only a con for me and not for those of you who don’t own it yet.
Lastly, this is great for sensitive skin. It has no parabens, sulfates, fragrances, dyes, etc. I have never broken out or hand a bad reaction to it. (My skin is combination oily and acne-prone).

Cons of bareMinerals All Over Face Color – Warmth:
- Older models do not have an inner lid to protect it from spilling (not really a con).

I give this product a 5/5. Hands down the best face makeup I own, I would recommend this to everybody.
