A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend a bareMinerals bloggers event held at Fenwicks in Newcastle for a select number of Northern bloggers. The event was held in order to celebrate the launch of bareMinerals new base product; Complexion Rescue, a revolutionary product, unlike any other on the market.
We were greeted with glasses of fizz and fresh juices, party rings and marshmallows and left to mingle for a little while, then we got down to business... the makeup! I have quite a few bareMinerals blushes but I had never dabbled with their base products, so I was really intrigued to learn more and give the products a try.
After an introduction to the brand which launched as bareMinerals in 1995 (previously known as Bare Essentials) and is now the 3rd ranking makeup brand in the UK, we were told more about Complexion Rescue; a tinted hydrating gel cream which is the best of a BB cream, a CC cream and tinted moisturiser all rolled into one beautiful base product.
We got to see all of the best bareMinerals products in action with a real life demonstration on a model while the bM girls talked us through the best techniques for application and the benefits of each product, and the finished result was amazing... we were all desperate to get our hands on the products as soon as possible... dreamy, radiant skin come at me!
If you're one of those people who finds themselves reaching for a lighter coverage base throughout the warmer months, then this one is for you. If you're more of a full coverage girl, use this underneath your foundation for a completely flawless finish.
Complexion Rescue claims to improve skin hydration by 215% after just one week of use, which basically sold it to me... I'm a sufferer of dry skin so anything which can help to combat that gets the thumbs up from me. It also gives a dewy, radiant glow to the skin which is another thing I look for in a base product... I have been using it for the past few weeks and will be sharing my views in a full blog post very soon.
The event was so much fun and I'm now (along with the other girls who attended) a complete bareMinerals junkie! Thank you so much to Fenwicks for hosting the event.
