Bare Minerals Floral Utopia Collection Review + Swatches

Oooooh, these are SO pretty, I can't even. Bare Minerals released their Floral Utopia collection in March and I personally think that this is their best collection yet. This is a five piece collection, which also includes an eye shadow palette and a brush set, but I didn't have enough pennies for everything, but I am beyond happy with what I do have.
The packaging throughout this collection is stunning, and I love how they have carried it on to the compacts and glosses etc too rather than just the cardboard packaging. First up we have the Bare Minerals Floral Utopia GEN NUDE Powder Blush (£23.00), which is available in four different shades, of which I have I'm Freesia a lovely vibrant pink. The formula is velvety soft and talc-free, which is much better for the skin. This mineral-rich powder helps to blue the appearance of pores and imperfections due to it including mineral-based pearls that help to diffuse the light to leave a soft-focus effect. The compact has that beautiful pink floral design like the rest of the packaging and I personally think this is a perfect Spring and Summer blush.
We then have the Bare Minerals Floral Utopia Highlighter Stick (£20.00), which is available in two shades, Indigo Girl, a soft, pearlescent and iridescent pink, and Orange Blossom, which is a warmer nude shade, which would suit more darker skin tones. I have Indigo Girl and this is even prettier than I imagined, it is hard to pick up on camera, but it gives such a pigmented and shimmery finish to the skin. It is a cream highlighter stick which of course comes in lovely packaging and is a twist-up product, and a little goes a long way. I aren't always obsessed with cream highlighter products, but this goes on to the skin beautifully and doesn't necessarily feel cream-like. Due to the amount of shimmer, this is a highlighter I would wear if I was going somewhere other than work, but I also love to use on the eyes or in the tear ducts to add brightness.
Finally, I ordered the Bare Minerals Floral Utopia GEN NUDE Patent Lip Lacquer (£18.00) in the shade Orchid-ing Around, which is a lovely Spring mauve shade. With it being a lip lacquer rather than a liquid lipstick, I didn't expect much coverage, but this was insane, it gives full coverage and is super shiny and glossy, definitely living up to it's Patent name. The formula contains Jojoba Oil and Algae to keep the lips moisturised and smooth, and it doesn't leave your lips feeling sticky or gloopy, and it is definitely a winner for me. The other three shades are also quite berry-toned, as is most of this collection, but I find them great transitional shades to take you from Spring through to Autumn. This is a Limited Edition collection however, so I would be quick if I were you as some of the shades of products have already sold out on the Bare Minerals website.
You can find the Bare Minerals Floral Utopia collection online at Bare Minerals here.

All the Loves,
