I’m pretty pleased with the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Half Shades because this product in Suede is in daily use. It’s my dog walking wear if you like and I put it on every single morning with a tiny splash of lip balm and blush. Just so I look a little bit presentable but not too glam for a dog walk! The claim is that it increases skin hydration and I certainly don’t have dry skin very often at all, but at the same time, I’m using any number of hydrators. I just like the minimal look coverage, the dewy finish coverage and the SPF30. It’s such an easy blend and more or less weightless on the skin.
However, one brand’s half shade is another brand’s full shade so I think what we can call these new colours is more shades! The daylight is absolutely rotten here today as London is under a cloud of grey but I haven’t put any filter on the pictures so that you can see the colours properly. Don’t forget that they’ve got an underwear of white (looking a bit grey to be honest!) paper.
Yes, one of them did splatter… no idea which one was the culprit though! There are six new shades, so if you are used to using one shade and your tone has changed with the season, you should be just about right for a half shade. All of the shades are split into cool, neutral and golden undertones.
My shade is Suede 4, and I find that Wheat 4.5 is a little warmer although its billed as a neutral. It’s a little bit confusing because not all shades have a half shade to accompany them. However, because they’re so sheer, they’re quite forgiving to a certain degree, so maybe I’m making this sound more complicated than it actually really is. All I can say is that it’s my daily go-to and I must be on at least tube 5 by now!
You can find the 10 shade line up HERE for £27 and the half shades join them in July.
