As soon as a new bareMinerals collection drops, I am there with bells on. If this brand were a person, I would be a full on stalker!

Their Spring Summer collection is called Lovescape, described as 'a bare love story', which focuses on glowing skin, luminous eyes and lips infused with colour... it's the perfect pretty, Summery yet natural makeup, great for everyday wear and beautiful enough for night time too.
I've treated myself to three pieces from the collection; The Instant Attraction eyeshadow quad, The Stolen Heart colour boost and the Chase Your Dreams lipstick.

I can't start this post without talking about the packaging... it's pretty hard to miss! The boxes are the most beautiful ombre purple to peach shades with 'bareMinerals' written across the front in gold. Continuing with the gold theme, the makeup is all encased in gold, the compacts both with rounded edges and have mirrors in the lids (which ticks a huge box for me). The lipstick has a fancy push down button and even has the Chanel-esque click when you close the lipstick after use, there is something really luxe about this collection, that's for sure!
Now onto the main event; the actual products.
The Instant Attraction eyeshadow palette holds four beautiful shades; 'Whirlwind' an opal peach, 'Anticipation' a radiant rose, 'Meant To Be' a shimmering espresso and 'Happenstance' a  shimmery yellow gold.
For day wear I've been using Whirlwind with Meant To Be blended into my crease and outer corner, for a simple look and for something a bit more I've been using a combination of all four shades.
Each shadow is highly pigmented and really long lasting on the eyes. Although they are all powder formula, they feel really soft and creamy when applied to the eyelids, this could be due to the fact that they contain SeaNutritive Mineral Complex which works to nourish the skin and reduce any puffiness or fine lines.
For those who read my blog a lot or know me in person, you will know that I'm not really an eyeshadow girl... day to day I don't really wear it, but I do love a bareMinerals eyeshadow duo which I was sent last year, which is what lead me to buying this palette. I know bareMinerals never disappoint me, and wanted to add a few more shades to my collection that I will actually wear!
My favourite piece from the collection is The Stolen Heart colour boost, a compact holding a really radiant and luminous peach blush/highlight and bronzer. This can be swirled together to give a flush of colour to the cheeks or used individually to give a light contoured effect. Pigmentation isn't the seller here, it's really quite subtle on the skin, but still something really beautiful for a daytime glow. This is one of those products you can use with no other makeup which will really make a difference, it wakens up the face and adds some dimension to any simple look. For me, a lot of the time I've been simply wearing Complexion Rescue, mascara and this and I feel 'done', which is ideal for days when I'm in a rush.
Lastly, I picked up the Marvellous Moxie Lipstick in 'Chase Your Dreams', a beautiful terracotta red shade made with a beautiful creamy formula. This contains a Abyssinian Oil and Omega Fatty Acids which moisturise and condition the lips while you wear it, Vitamins A, C and E which deliver antioxidant defence and minerals which give a fuller looking pout.
This is really long lasting on the lips and will withstand plenty of hours before the need to reapply. The colour payoff is wonderful, it's pretty much exactly as it appears in the bullet and the finish is really smooth.

Unfortunately everything in the Lovescape Collection is limited edition, so you'll have to snap them up quickly if you want to add any of these beauties to your collection. I've got my eye on the Sheer Sun Serum Bronzer next!
The collection is available now, with prices starting at £17.
