I am a huge Bare Minerals fan and I can’t resist making a purchase when they launch a TSV on QVC. The Glamour Now collection is the last TSV of the year that Bare Minerals will have brought to QVC and it is simply amazing in terms of value and products. Not to mention, it’s so pretty.
For those of you not familiar with QVC, let me explain to you what a TSV is. TSV stands for Todays Special Value. Everyday QVC brings to you an amazing offer from one of the many brands they sell. The product is usually; excellent value for money, is available on easy pay and sometimes offers you never seen before products/collections that are exclusively available to QVC. Another great thing about QVC is that they offer you a 30-day money back guarantee, sometimes extending this to 90-days depending on the product. So to clarify, you get to play with the products, actually wear the makeup (who else let’s you do that?) and if you aren’t happy just send it back.
So, let’s take a look at what comes in this amazing 7 piece collection;
1 x New Hydrating Gold Mineral Veil Finishing Powder (1.5g)– This is a brand new product and currently only available to QVC. It infuses your skin with a golden glow while giving you a hydrating finishing powder.
1 x New Smoke & Define Double-Ended Kohl & Liquid Liner (0.15g; 1ml)– Also new to QVC and not yet available anywhere else, this is a dual-sided eye liner that features a felt-tip liquid end in dark Expresso & a kohl eye liner in deep brown.
1 x Original SPF 15 Foundation (8g)– This is the original foundation from Bare Minerals and of course comes with the option to choose your own shade.
1 x Ready Eyeshadow 4.0 in The Main Event (5g)– A collection of 4 vivid pigments; Ball Gown (nude sheen), Celebrate (yellow cream), Cheers (shiitake or as I prefer to call it grey) and finally Stiletto (plum chocolate).
1 x Blush in Glamour (0.85g)– A soft and creamy pink blush.
1 x Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Dazzler (4.5ml)– Described as a universally flattering melon hue gloss.
1 x Flawless Application Face Brush- A new synthetic brush that is perfect for applying the bare minerals foundation & mineral veil.
So, how amazing does all of that look? It also comes in this beautiful gold box and if you ask me it makes it the perfect gift. Christmas is around the corner people!!
I have to be honest, I clicked ‘buy’ as soon as I saw the eyeliner and eyeshadow palette. These two just screamed autumn and winter for me and I think that the plum shade in the palette is just beautiful. Perfect for making those green and brown eyes pop.
If you purchased this collection on launch day (like I did), you would have got this for the bargain price of £40.86, with the option of paying in 3 easy pay instalments. It’s not all doom and gloom if you want to buy it now, it is still available for £51.00 and in my opinion still a bargain. A ready eyeshadow quad would normally set you back £29.00, the award winning foundation usually retails for £25.00 and a moxie gloss usually costs £16.00. That is £70.00 right there, so the value really is amazing and one of the reasons why I get my Bare Minerals products from QVC.
So, if you love Bare Minerals or want to try their products for the first time, this is the perfect collection for you. This gives you everything you need for a day/night look and since it arrived, it is all that I am using for my everyday/office makeup. It even comes with a get the look sheet that you can follow to create the Glamour Now look.
