BAREPro Performance Wear Liquid Foundation Review

#bareminerals #barepro #review #foundation

I received the bareMinerals BAREPro Performance Wear Liquid Foundation for free from Influenster as part of a VoxBox and for complimentary testing purposes. I shared the above photo on Instagram and wanted to review the product here in depth for those of you who have asked me about it. 

To start it all off, silly me actually twisted off the cap rather than pulling off the top to access the pump top application. I wondered why there was just a stick inside to apply, definitely not used to a pump. After using it, the pump feature is quite nice and makes the morning routine that much quicker. 

On my hand, you can see that the color is pretty light for my summertime skin tone. I thought I chose well, but it can be hard to get a perfect match when looking at tiny swatches and I'm definitely not a make up aficionado. This is my slightly tanned summer color, but I bet once winter rolls around and I'm quite a bit paler this shade will actually be a closer match to my skin tone than it is at the moment.

After applying the foundation below, you can see that the tone is not actually too far off from my facial skin tone. I really liked that it camouflaged some of the red tones in my skin. After letting it rest fora bit, I did decide to top it off with a little bit of bronzer, just to warm up the tone a bit. I felt like I was a little ghostly without the bronzer, but again, for my wintertime skin tone it would probably be okay.

I haven't worn liquid foundation in some time, I switched over to a powder foundation in the Spring mainly for the ease of application, but I don't recall having to work as hard to blend the foundation as much as I did with this one. While applying the foundation, I used a foundation brush and definitely felt like the foundation was tugging my skin. It was not smooth and did not glide. Because I had a lighter color than what I felt would be the perfect color for my skin tone, blending and smoothing so there were no lines took some work. Had I chosen the perfect color, that might not have been the case.

I feel like with a powder, I don't have to blend as much as I do with a liquid. For me, liquid foundation is definitely a more full coverage look and I don't feel as low key and care free when wearing it I feel more made up. Not a fault of the BAREPro foundation, just my personal opinion.

After looking at the photos for this post, I think the BAREPro Performance Wear Liquid Foundation does a really good job of giving me a finished, put together look. I will definitely use the BAREPro Foundation again this winter, but will remain a fan of powder foundations for now.

I Can't Stop Talking About

List 14 | I Can't Stop Talking About
I changed up the prompt to "Eating" - at Halloween, I cannot control myself, I just want to eat all the snack pack size bags of Sour Patch Kids! Well, all except for the yellow and green, kind of thankful that Victoria likes those flavors.

The paper I used for my list also makes an appearance in a Days of the Week travelers notebook set {seen below} available in 3 sizes.

List 15 | Today's Play ListIsabella is our in-home playlist. She sings every moment she can. She wasn’t able to take Choir this year {sad moment for us all} because it conflicted with her Honors classes. Bonus, she has to learn the French national anthem {for French class} so we’ve all been “learning” the French national anthem.  

The paper selection was totally random, but don’t you just love when things like that happen? 

using journaling cards in your memory keeping projects

This journaling card set can take on so many personalities just by switching up the embellishments you decide to use. And even if you only use the cards and die cuts that are included, you'll be set for all the seasons and even be ready to welcome in 2018.
3x4 Journaling Cards 
By purchasing the instant download file for these journaling cards, you can print the file as many times and as often as you like! I printed several sheets to have plenty of cards to decorate cards and have ready to go when I've got a few moments to create.

#pocket #pages #journaling #card #list #printable #download #scrapbooking #project #life #3x4 #4x6

For the Hello Winter card, I punched the journaling spot with a 1" circle punch, which gave me slight colored border. I then punched a 1.25" circle from textured cardstock to layer beneath it, using a foam dot to add it to my 3x4 journaling card.

newest additions to my home | list 9

This time of year, the newest additions to my home are almost always pillows. Something about cooler temps and changing colors me me want to up the coziness factor of our home with plush down filled pillows. I have a collection of zippered pillow covers in different sizes and store them in a bin during the off seasons.

By investing in down pillows, I can change the look of our home by just changing the covers and only having to store just the flat covers, not a ton of pillows. My favorite places are TJ Maxx and Tuesday Morning for affordable down filled pillows and covers. I have been know to purchase clearance pillows for in hideous designs for a few dollars just to get the down insert and end up donating the pillow cover!

I embellished my page with goodies that were included in the embellishment pack that came with this mini album. This one is sold out, but you can find similar journals in the shop. Each kit had a different playing card, mine had a 9, so it was perfect for list number 9 don't you think? The glitter striped die cut punch was also included and I attached it to the side of my page as sort of file tab.

Here's a close-up so you can see the yummy glittery feel of the paper.

And to add a little bit of fun, I added another scallop die cut to the reverse side.

I often use the offcuts from trimming my travelers notebook inserts as embellishments on my mini book pages. I'm not one to waste pretty paper, that's for sure. The color of my scrap matched the page plus it allowed me to add some orange to this side of the spread to coordinate with the peachy orange on the right side.

As much as I love using my letter stickers as part of my title, I do adore using my handwriting as well. It's party of me and my story and I think it should be included. I know that some people are not fans of their own handwriting, but I don't let that stop me.

A friend on social media posted about a fabric sale on flannel at JoAnn's a few weeks back and, you guessed it, I hopped in my car and drove to Knoxville to take advantage of the sale. I have enough of the plaid flannel to made another smaller pillow.

fall break adventures

#corn #maze #maple #lane

Our Fall Break adventures are over and just need to be documented so that we always remember. Before I get to that, though, I need to print photos. That's always the part that holds me back.

Now all I have to do is get these stories recorded so we don't forget! 

How I Crush My To Do List

Are you a list maker? Do you journal your lists as a creative outlet? Do you use a planner? I'm a combination of all three. And I'll admit, I often have to move items on my to do list forward several times before I can actually mark it as done.

Now on to lists 18 - 21 of the September 2017 #30lists challenge. Why don't you join us in December for the next class? {affiliate link} It's a great way to get a little snippet of your life recorded and documented. Not just for you, but for future generations.

List 18 | When I Want to Quit
Sometimes...I just do. I'm old enough now to know that there are times when it's the best answer.

List 19 | Places I Visited This Year
Other than our ordinary, everyday adventures, the only place we headed to was Florida for our summer vacay. We don't vacation every year, but when we do it's very likely it's going to be on a beach somewhere.

List 23 | Word I Would Like To Use More Often

Yes. When an idea or adventure or plan is presented to me, instead of thinking of ways it can't or won't work, or how we don't have time, or that it's too expensive...I just wan to think yes. YES. And make it happen.

I'm such a practical person, a rule follower, an obedient person {most of the time} and I'd like to be more carefree, wild, and spontaneous. Putting myself into a yes mindset is my little way of doing that.

What word would you like to use more often?
