I've put off buying Warmth for a couple of years due to how dark it looks in the package and the mixed reviews out there, but I wish I wouldn't have waited. This is such a beautiful bronzer on my NC20/Golden Medium skintone. My skin is dry with large pores and Warmth doesn't accentuate either. It leaves a natural glow without looking orange, streaky or muddy and it blends really well. Only thing to mention is that a little goes a long way so start with just a little in the lid and go from there.
I got this as a tester free with my purchase of bareMineral's liquid foundation, and I've tried it a few times. It's highly pigmented and I think it's perfect for contouring. It really adds depth to my rather chubby cheeks and I think it's better than Benefit's Hoola for contouring. A little of it goes a long way and using an angled blush brush I was definitely able to make a small sprinkle of it angle my face a little more.
At first I hated this product but now I love it. I've learned to use products in the way that work the best for my skin and not use them in the way it's directed to use them such as not apply this everywhere on my face but only on my cheeks and only over my blush. I use this over a peachy-corally colored blush and this paired with my blush looks beautiful together.
I've had the same container for almost 7 years now and I've barely put a dent in the jar cause this stuff is so pigmented. I also own a tiny jar of Faux Tan but Faux Tan looks horrible on me, it makes my cheeks looks red as if I got sunburned. Faux Tan and Warmth look almost the same in the jar but once you swatch them side by side you can tell the difference.
I see not many people are a fan of this and that's ok cause what works for me might not work for someone else. This gives me a slight sunkissed glow that I love, especially when paired over certain colored blushes on me.
This is not matte but the fact that this isn't matte surprises me at how much I love this product since I'm more drawn to matte face products with the exception of eye shadow. This is not a glitter bomb, thankfully and the glitter in this is subtle and not too noticeable.
I would not use this for contouring, this product is horrible at contouring and will give you lackluster, slightly muddy looking results. Also, I don't think this is a substitute for a bronzer and I would not use this in place of a bronzer even though this does give you a sunkissed glow to your cheeks.
The trick to using this is simple, this is how I found to apply this to yield the best results: Tap a tiny, tiny amount of product into the lid, this stuff is *very* pigmented so you want to start out with a very tiny amount and build up the color to your desired effect. Apply to the apples of your cheeks and blend, blend some more and then use a more fluffy brush to blend it out even more. So in effect, use a tiny amount and build up the color, apply with a small blush brush and blend well then use a bigger more fluffy brush to blend it out even more. This is the best way I've found to apply Warmth. I also think this looks best when applied over a blush and not on its own.
And yes, I would buy it again if I ran out. It is expensive but it will last you forever, after almost 7 years I still have a ton of product left.
this is really flattering, you just have to use it really lightly or you'll look dirty… but thats good cause it makes it last a long time!
My HG makeup product of all time! Have bought this several times and this still impress me to this day. It's ridiculously expensive here in Norway, but it lasts a long time (a year or so). I do not want to try anything else and love that this is tiny, compact and easy for traveling. I love the twist-to-close lid!
If you can not tell by my other reviews, I'm a kind of girl who look for the best, and then stick to the products I love for years and years..
My goodness, this stuff is AMAZING! Truly makes me look a few years younger, like I'm glowing! I see there are some disappointed reviews here. My guess is that these are women who are using a heavy hand when applying, which is the last thing you wanna do. I take the full face brush, tap a teensy bit on to the lid, swirl the product on to the brush, tap off any excess and gently sweep the brush across my cheeks to the temples, slightly on the chin, high on the forehead, gently on the nose. Oh, it leaves such a radiating glow on the skin, so sunlit and youthful, so beautiful. I use this, a light coverage foundation or powder (to control oil and even the complexion), mascara, a natural lippie, and then sweep this across my face. I love it. Will continue to purchase and highly recommend to other women.
I have very fair skin and many a day, no matter what combo of facial makeup products I apply, I end up still looking anemic or like I've overcompensated with color to remedy my tired pallor - unnaturally "altered." This is why a product like BE All-Over Face Color in Warmth is so necessary in my makeup arsenal. Used neither as a bronzer, blush nor for contouring, I instead apply it ever so LIGHTLY with a large fluffy brush over the areas where light hits my face. Warmth AOFC really, truly does transform my peaked complexion into healthier-looking and just more attractive version of itself in a way that no blush, bronzer, highlighter, illuminizer, etc. has been able to do; a very effective and satisfying result. I just wish, though, that BE would offer this special shade of the AOFC line in a nice, tidy and big compact rather than the messy, annoying and difficult to use present container that holds the loose pigment. It is sooo hard to work with yet it seems that it would be sooo easy for BE to come up with a better solution for its frustrated, pigment-covered consumers. I usually spill some of the highly pigmented powder and then have a mess to cleanup (counter, clothes, hands, etc.) afterward - and removing/cleaning up such a pigmented product is no easy task, particularly when I'm hurrying to get out the door! Trying to get a tiny bit of pigment out of the top of the container, as instructed, onto a big, fluffy brush is very difficult but so essential for proper application. I suppose using a smaller brush would be slightly easier but, for me, the only brush that provides a natural and undetectable result is a big and fluffy one. No wonder so many reviewers who dislike this product (reminder- I'm specifically referring to the Warmth All-Over Face Color) have applied too much of it through no fault of their own. Truth be told, though I love the unique "oomph" that Warmth gives my face, it does, more often than not, end up in my beauty product "dog house" for misbehaving before it ever reaches my face. While the other BE All-Over Face Color shades may not have such specific application parameters in order to achieve a satisfying result, Warmth desperately needs a user-friendlier container alternative for those of us who face the world with a lovely, healthy-looking complexion but also with mysterious, red clay-ish looking stains smeared about.
Well, I have to say up front-- that I despise this as a bronzer or blush with my skin tone --NW15--- it's just muddy and ugly. HOWEVER!! I have really light blue eyes and I ADORE this both as a shadow and eyeliner ( cinema secrets liner sealer) --- makes my eyes pop like nothing else. Love it, love it for that. Lasts forever-- literally FOREVER. Can't speak to other eye colors or skin tones, but if you're a pale, blue eyed gal like me, give it a try.
I did somewhat like the shade of this and effect it can have on the skin. I do not like the price, the mess, or how it wears during the day.
It starts to turn very orange and muddy looking as the day goes on. Even when I use very little it starts to breakup and look patchy.
Like all other bare products, I HATE their packaging. I'm clumsy and I tend to spill and have accidents so I waste a lot of their products. Alas, I love their mineral makeup and this Warmth face color. It definitely gives your face some color... (I'm a NC/15 MAC) Little goes a lonnnng way with this stuff, or you will look like you've had your face literally in dirt. But that's one reason I like it. I think it's a good value, because I wear it every time I use makeup, which is most days, and my tiny pot is pushing 5+ months old and I still have mileage left in it. I buff it on cheekbones/chin/forehead with the Flawless Face brush, and contour the sides of my nose with a concealer brush and further buff it with a big, fluffy face brush to blur any harshness. Like the mineral makeup, it's powdery form yet almost glides on, very creamy consistency and looks very natural and pretty on my face. Helps me fake a tan. I still prefer Urban Decay's Baked Bronzer but I got this pot of Warmth with a bareMinerals kit that included the mineral makeup in Original and Matte formulas, a Prime Time foundation primer, and Mineral Veil for about $60 @ Ulta so not a bad deal at all. I don't love it and it doesn't have me turning cartwheels but I'm passionate about cosmetics and my honest opinion is its very good. I would recommend, and I would repurchase the kit I bought, though probably wouldn't buy it separately.
