bareMinerals Go for the Glow set

Disclaimer: Christmas gift from Mom!

go for the glow

This year, my mom way waaaaaay overboard buying me Christmas presents – and a LOT of those presents were beauty-related!

But I’m not complaining!!

This bareMinerals Go for the Glow three-piece set is one of those beauty gifts, and it’s a set that I’d been tempted to pick up at Ulta while doing Christmas shopping!

Go for the Glow was a special gift set that launched Black Friday for $10, and I can no longer find it on Ulta’s website – I still saw it in stores last Thursday, however, when I went in for my hair appointment. So while not online, it’s possible to find a straggler or two in stores!

Here’s what the kit consists of:

From left to right:

  • Full size Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Smooth Talker
  • Blush in Exhilarate
  • All-Over Face Color in Clear Radiance

Here’s a swatch of the lip color:

Smooth Talker is a beautiful peachy shade with warm golden shimmer. Beautiful! And minty. I have always been a fan of bareMinerals lip products, especially Buxom and Moxie glosses!

Here’s a closer look at Exhilarate. I applied it with a very, very light hand, because it’s a darker blush than I’m used to:

Applied the way I did, with a light touch, it is a great pink for my fair skin tone. Applied regularly, on darker skin tones, this will look so beautiful.

And here’s the full face effect. I used Clear Radiance as my face powder:

I actually have a full-size of Clear Radiance in my makeup stash that’s getting low, so I was happy for the back-up!

I’ve always been a fan of bareMinerals in general, and I was happy with this Christmas Gift! Thanks, Mom!!

So – did you pick up this set for yourself, or someone on your shopping list this holiday season? I’d love to know your thoughts!

Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone! Be safe and have a great time tonight if you have special plans – and even if you don’t!!!

  • erikatheicyone

    Those colours are lovely on you.

    I have to restrain myself from buying any more loose BE. I have so. many. little. jars. I will never begin to use them in ten lifetimes. I plan to press them and put them into palettes to get more use out of them. But I want more jars because pretty. *sigh*

    • BeautyJudy

      The good news is that these supposedly have a looooong shelf life compared with other makeup, if that’s any consolation?! Lol if you press them, you’ll have to post a tutorial!!

  • Miranda Mendoza

    These products look lovely on you! I’ve been very impressed with the bare minerals box sets this season!

    • BeautyJudy

      I love them Miranda! She also got me a gift that is basically a box subscription – every quarter a new box of products from bareMinerals ships! I think from QVC! We call it “the gift that keeps on giving” lol
