I spent an evening last week at a BareMinerals masterclass – Scottish press, bloggers, and influencers were give a helpful demo by the brand’s National Makeup Artist, Gina Fitt.
Obviously she can’t be at multiple locations this week, but the in-store makeup artists will do a brilliant job at the masterclass events in stores this Thursday, November 8.

The masterclass used products from one of this year’s Christmas sets – the Supernova kit – and this year’s offerings from BareMinerals are great, with loads of really good value for money products.
The Supernova Space Glossary set is £70, but the contents are worth a whopping £208! It contains 12 full-size best sellers:
- Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor in BO$$
- Gen Nude Buttercream Lipgloss in Tantalize
- Gen Nude Pstent Lip Lacquer in Can’t Even
- Moxie Plumping Lipgloss in Dare Devil
- One Fine Line Micro Liner in Black
- Loose Eyecolor in Queen Phyllis
- Loose Blush in Beauty
- Loose Mineral Veil
- Prime Time Foundation Primer
- Loose Radiance in Clear
- Lashtopia Mascara in Ultimate Black
- Double Ended Soft Focus Shadow & Blush Brush
Blimey – that’s a lot of product for the money. I have to admit BareMinerals isn’t one of my go-to brands. I also remember when it launched into Debenhams in the UK back in the mid-Noughties, and it was the first mineral makeup on the market.
Fewer products, and those long videos that went with the products, so you knew how to apply them properly are what I recall the most! ‘Buffing’ in the original powder foundation is still top of the list!
I don’t love it. I never have, and I don’t think I ever will, but I do like their Performance Wear Liquid Foundation and their Perfecting Face Brush with a reservoir for the product is my favourite makeup brush ever.
