Hooray, a beauty event in Newcastle… finally! As a beauty blogger north of the M25 it’s easy to feel a little left out when it comes to beauty launches, so props to bareMinerals for hosting a product launch “up North” and allowing some North East bloggers a slice of the action. Off I popped to Fenwick Newcastle last week, for a preview of the new Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream, a live demonstration, some fizz and stunning views of a sunny Toon.
I’ll cut to the chase, I’ve never been a bareMinerals girl, but seeing is believing and now that I’ve seen first-hand the difference this product makes, that’s about to change. Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream £26 is a game changer. A multitasking genius that combines skincare benefits and naturally radiant coverage in one. The best of a BB, a CC, and a tinted moisturiser...with a 215% increase in skin hydration after just one week, this is a whole new way to think about makeup. We got to see a live demonstration and the minute Complexion Rescue hit the skin, the model looked glowy and luminous. If I didn’t know better I’d swear she’d just had a sneaky facial. I was colour matched that night and came home with a sample of Ginger 06, I’m thinking, well I’m hardly a red head, but don’t be deterred by the name, it’s for medium skin with golden tones. It’s best applied with a brush, and has been launched alongside a stunning couldn’t-take-my-hands-off-it duo fibre. I’ve only been using it a few days so it’s too soon to say it’s a life changer/best thing ever… but it just could be. It has very sheer coverage and I’m definitely heading in that direction. I can’t stand anything thick and cakey. My early thoughts are Complexion Rescue is like my skin but better. It even outs skin tone, locks in moisture and leaves a radiant, luminous, glow. It’s perfect off-duty makeup when your skin needs a little help but you don’t want a full on face. And when you do need more coverage you can layer it up or wear under your normal foundation as a moisturiser/primer/corrector wonder-product in one.
In this picture I'm wearing Complexion Rescue in Ginger with some Mac Mineralize Powder.
We also got a demo of the BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation going over the top – oh my days, these two together equalled full on flawless skin. I was so inspired I’ve booked myself in to the Bare Minerals counter for a “Make-under” so I can experience the goodies myself.
Date for your diaries… Complexion Rescue launches in-store this Thursday! If you fancy sampling it and you’re in the North East, pop to the bareMinerals counter in Fenwick, Newcastle, and mention Beauty & le Chic to receive you free sample.
