Beauty Reviews: bareMinerals & benefit cosmetics

When I read about bareMinerals Complexion Rescue™ Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream (1.18 fl oz $29) I knew I had to try it! Then I saw a bunch of beauty bloggers reviewing it and their skin looked amazing so I had high hopes. It was marketed as a hydrating BB cream. It claims: "Marine botanicals to help hydrate and replenish thirsty skin. Mineral electrolytes help energize skin. A skin-protecting antioxidant acts like skin's bodyguard to help defense against environmental stressors." I selected Vanilla 02. I loved the finish it left on my skin... dare I say radiant? It is on the sheer side of coverage much like their bareSkin foundation although that started to smell after awhile. Hope that doesn't happen with this one. So far I'm super impressed! It is an unique formula that multi-tasks. I would definitely recommend it!

Sephora gave us VIBs a chance to try benefit's new Roller Lash mascara, (.3 oz $24) before it launches February 27th. I'm a huge fan of benefit mascaras - read here. "An innovative mascara with an eye-opening Hook ‘n’ Roll™ brush that grabs, separates, lifts and curls…while the instant curve-setting formula holds for 12 hours." First of all, the packaging is super adorable. They modeled it after old-fashioned curlers. I like the curled wand. Not a lot of formula gets on the brush, which helps minimizes clumping. It glided on smoothly, separating my lashes. I was really pleased with the results!

Have you tried these products? What are your thoughts?


  1. I've heard good things about the complexion rescue. I can see the difference with the mascara too.


  2. I definitely need to try that Bare Minerals cream. Sounds like it's amazing.
    I've given the Roller Dash a try and loved it so much. As much as I love the They're Real mascara, I think I might prefer this one.

  3. @Jess & Gita yes, it was a great experience. Noticed a difference.

  4. @Sherin I think each mascara serves it's purpose. Roller Lash is more daily whereas They're Real is a bolder, evening mascara. Let me know if you try the bareMinerals cream!


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
