This is a pretty nice product from Bare Escentuals. I don't really use their products but am pretty faithful to this one because of its versatility. It is indeed on the shimmery side, but if you layer you get a nice flush similar to a Bobbi Brown shimmer brick. Or, I usully just sweep some over blush or bronzer as a subtle highlighter.
Looks like it warms up your skin and evens the tone, kind of like a pair of nude stockings, with a bit of glow.
Gorgeous! I am having a rough day - literally got zero sleep last night, and I mean *none.* Anyway,, just now, at almost 4 pm, I decided to put something, anything, on my face to lift my spirits a bit. I put on some Stila TM in Medium, then dusted Smashbox Soft Lights in Lens over that (OMG! Another great find!!!). Decided to then try out my new Bare Radiance (purchased on eBay last week, solely based on the reviews here - never saw it before IRL), and I LOVE it! Such a soft pinkish nude, but not garish at all. "Nude" just sums it up beautifully. A stunning, natural look. Thanks, goils, and Happy New Year!!!
Of all the radiances,bare radiance is my favorite,it comes out looking
i love how this bronzer doesn't give me a deep color on my face. it gives it a nice subtle looking tan. not too dark not too light. it is my favorite of the all over face colors.
This gives me that fresh dewy look. The only complaint that I would have (and this is for all BE products) is that the sifter allows too much powder to collect in the top of the pot so if you are not careful it can get messy.
This is an absolutely gorgeous nude color with a slight pink sheen and I DO NOT DO nudes, usually. Both the All Over Face Color powder reviewed here and the matching lipgloss are just the right shade of nude for my very fair complexion. Nudes usually wash me out completely and make me look sickly. Not this shade---it is a real find! I can wear this (layered a bit densely) as a very natural blush or sweep over the eyes. But I usually put it on first in my T zone and then add a pop of bright color to my cheek apples. LOVE IT.
I love this. I use this as a blush, mainly - also sometimes, I will use it as a wash color for my eyes or to highlight temples, nose and chin - but mostly as a blush. It's a very pretty, natural color on me - a lightly sparkly, subtle shimmery pink to pinkish brown but neutral - not muddy and not too pink either. Extremely natural looking on me, makes me look healthy and sunkissed. I think you get a lot of this product for the money and you don't have to use that much either. This is probably the only BE radiance I might repurchase if I ever run out of it, I really love the color, but after discovering Alima blushes and their shimmer blushes to replace BE radiances, EM blushes, and Fyrinnae, I doubt I will repurchase any BE blushes. You just get so much more for your money from etailers. Edited: 8/08: This is still my favorite Radiance from BE and the first one I bought in full size. I will definitely repurchase this.
I absolutley LOVE Bare Radiance & think it's the easiest, most natural looking bronzer I've ever used. Other powdered bronzer seems to look orange and blotchy on my skin, but even a half-hearted dusting while I'm driving (at a red light, of course!) just makes my face glow. I'm a fair-medium & BE warmth is too orange for me, but Bare Radiance is perfect in the summertime.
Also, when I'm in between summer (just starting to get tan in the spring, or fading in the fall), I mix a little bit of the light foundation with a teensy bit of Glee blush, and a teensy bit of Warmth & blend well before applying - and then lightly dust Bare Radiance all over.
I gave this 3 lippies b/c it's a good product, just too light for my light to medium, olive toned skin. It really didn't show up much at all and it certainly didn't achieve the effect that I was going for. Good product, just too light for me. I'll be swapping this away.
