I've been using Bare Escentuals/Bare Minerals products since they were just a couple of little botique stores in the San Fancisco Bay Area in the late 1980's. So, I have just a bit of experience with this stuff.
Since it came out, the Bare Radiance color is one that I cannot go without (along with bisque and a few others# that I use every day. #yes, every day) The Warmth and Warm Radiance type shades turn orange on me and some the other more pink ones like Rose Radiance are just too pink. It's a perfect neutral shade for me and I would think for many others too. I use it year-round as a blush and also as a defining highlighter on certain pars of the face like brow bone, chin, nose, etc..
This might be my favourite radiance, it suits my medium skin tone perfectly and is very versatile. I like to use it after foundation and before mineral veil on my cheek bones and up around my eyes. I also like to dab a little on the inner corners of my eyes and cupids bow- it highlights these areas to give glowing eyes and kissably full lips. When used on my face it gives a beautiful ethereal glow.
I loved the foundation on it's own before I tried the bare radiance, but the radiance gives it lovely radiant finish.
I will not be without this, I apply all over after using my foundation and in any season it just finishes my face. In winter it adds a healthy glow , in summer it highlights my cheekbones. When I don't want to fuss with eye makeup I use this on my lids with mascara and it makes my green eyes pop. Love it!
This makes your face glow and not an unnatural glow. Its like you are glowing yourself, I think someone else wrote that it looks like you have an angelic glow. Its great!
I have all the Radiance's and this is one of my favs! I use it in the winter when I want to add color to my face.
Lovely for Summer
I have this and it comes out in the summer when I've a bit of colour on my face, it can be very dark for winter. It adds a lovely warmth in the summer along the lines of a light tan.
This is the best! You can do a thin layer or layer it a lot as opposed to layering warmth which brings the orange. It adds that healthy glow from the light shimmer/tint. and the soothing brownish color is so natural it's wonderful. yay thank you love this product!! :)
Love the glow
I absolutly LOVE this product I actually use it as a blush and all over brightner gives that ittle extra glow Ive used Bare Minerals for ten plus years will never use nothing but bare Minerals I just wish I had my own little money tree out back to buy all the things I want- I do wish they had little sampler kits as would be nice to try before you buy especially the anti aging products espwecially when your spending that amount of money- but the products are absolutly the best!!!
I love Bare Radiance it is my favorite and only the only one I use now. I kept an empty foundation container and sifter washed and once it was dry mixed matte foundation and a touch of bare radiance. I love it when the season changes from summer to fall and winter. It gives you a dewy look from within... very angelic.
