BareMinerals’ Bare Platinum kit

I acquired the eye-cheek-face colors separately, as this kit far preceded my collection-phase (or even using BE at all). Many of these larger kits are more economical for me to acquire piecemeal, especially since I don’t want to add to my collection of BE brushes AND since I have so many of the colors; but if I were new to BE, this kit would have been a good value. It had gossamer instead of more foundation; it had a lipstick instead of a lip gloss; and the brushes weren’t the ones we generally see in every single BE kit.

BareMinerals’ Bare Platinum kit

This kit included:

  • Embrace — alabaster lavender pearl
  • Fame — dark violet shimmer
  • Intuition — dark eggplant sheen
  • Secret — deep mauve pink matte
  • Platinum Gossamer — sparkly cloud-silver face and body powder
  • Ripe Fig 100% Natural Lipstick — medium-deep lilac mauve lip color
  • Feather Light Mineral Veil
  • Heavenly Face brush
  • Contour Shadow brush
  • Full-Edged Liner brush

The Platinum Gossamer isn't included in this photo because while I bought it, I also mixed it with some other colors that I didn't love quite so much to give them a bit of depth and sparkle.
