bareMinerals Crystallized Collection
bareMinerals Crystallized Collection

bareMinerals Crystallized Collection (was $54.00, now $38.00) is a holiday set that’s already on sale, so I guess the timing of this review still works out since now you can get it for even more of a steal than before! It contains eight products, and most of them are full-sized. Everything is in silver-hued packaging. The standsout in the kit are definitely the Eyeshadow Duo (but I’m such a huge fan of the formula, that’s not a surprise) and lipstick.

Presto is described as an “almond satin.” It’s a pale, golden beige with a frosted, almost metallic, sheen. It also had flecks of fine copper sparkle that didn’t seem to combine well with the base color (they seemed to sit on top). I wouldn’t have described the finish as satin at all. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft and smooth. It wore well for ten hours without creasing or fading. See comparison swatches.

Abracadabra is described as a “shimmering slate.” It’s a medium-dark gray with a frosted, metallic sheen. The color payoff was good, and the consistency was soft and smooth. It wore well for ten hours without creasing or fading. See comparison swatches.

Mesmerized is described as a “dark charcoal.” It’s a dark, warm-toned gray with a satin-matte finish. It had good color payoff when applied dry or wet. It lasted eight and a half hours before fading slightly on my lash line. See comparison swatches.

Steam is described as a “silver shimmer.” It’s a brightened, silvery white with golden edges and a frosted, metallic finish. It had fairly good pigmentation and lasted eight hours before fading. See comparison swatches.

Golden Gate is a soft, rosy plum with a frosted, sparkling finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was finely-milled and velvety. It wore well for seven hours, and it did somewhat emphasize pores. See comparison swatches.

Hypnotist is described as a “holographic violet-peach.” It’s a color-shifting shade of pink that goes from pink to violet to coral. It looks almost like it’s a pink flame. However, this only looks that way sometimes; it shifts other times to a pale, millky pink. It’s a chameleon, and for that reason, I don’t have dupes for this one. The formula was light-medium in weight, non-sticky, and lightly hydrating for the two hours it lasted. It had sheer color coverage, which is in line with how it’s marketed (bareMinerals says it has “sheer, pure color”).

Break Away is described as a “luscious mauve.” It’s a warm-toned, rosy plum with a satin-matte finish. It had full, opaque color coverage. The texture was lightly creamy, easy to apply without it tugging on the lips, and wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating. See comparison swatches.

The kit also includes a full-sized Lash Domination mascara and Dual-Ended Shade and Line Brush (works all right, nothing special, nothing horrible).

    That lipgloss looks SO cool swatched on the skin and in the tube! Too bad it doesn’t stand out more on the lips!

  2. I love this set! The closest dupe I know of for the gloss is Inglot AMC Lip gloss. 542 might be close. I thought 544 was close, but it’s too pigmented. I really love glosses like this one!

    I definitely don’t like any of the products but it’s a very good review, as always :)

    I think the stand out is the lipgloss as the eye color look so boring to me, really damned they dont have this gloss in the moxie line and that’s the only item I want out of this kit

    I absolutely love this set! Wish I’d gotten it on sale but so glad I have it. Agreed….the eyeshadows and lipstick are the standouts but the whole set together is so very pretty.

  6. I’m obsessed with that gloss swatch! This set is really a steal. I need to get familiar with Bare Minerals

    I really like this whole set (except the loose shadows maybe). I wonder if the lipgloss might show up better layered over something? I have an Inglot AMC gloss and it’s kinda the same- only really noticeable when you’re talking or from certain angles. I’ve been too worried about muddying up the tube to try though…

    Christine,

    What foundation & powder are you wearing here??? Your skin looks awesome!!

    A dupe for Hypnotist is Inglot AMC lipgloss 541!!! It is holographic lilac-pink… its is very interesting and has the same effect.

    Jesse’s Girl cosmetics actually has a line of glosses similar to Hypnotist. The base is clear rather than milky pink, but they have a similar duochrome effect.

    This looks like a really pretty collection, though I wouldn’t get any use out of the lip products, so it’s a pass for me. Love the liner color, though. I wish there were more grey matte liners out there!

  11. The Inglot glosses are indeed like this one, as are a line of Jesse’s Girl glosses. They used to be slightly different but were revamped this past year, so I’m not familiar with the new shades, but the old ones had a pretty weak shift. They’re available here (https://www.jessesgirlcosmetics.com/product/glow-stix-lip-gloss/) and at Rite Aid.

    The lipstick and duo eyeshadow are beautiful, but unfortunately for me, I don’t like loose pigments.

    Revlon Colorburst gloss in Crystal Lilac might be a rough dupe for the lipgloss here.

    I am not a fan of the Last Domination mascara. For me, it was really clumpy and dried up much faster than other similarly priced mascaras I’ve used. Could have just been my tube, but It didn’t work for me.

    The all over face color is really pretty, though!

  14. This markdown kinda irritates me because I bought this last week for my mom for xmas. I paid the 54 bucks. ugh. Thanks for reviewing it though. I think she will like it.

  15. Avatar of Stacey Stacey

    See, for me, I wasn’t so thrilled with the eyeshadows, but the standouts are the Golden Gate Radiance (which is more shimmery than Golden Gate simply as a blush), which is a really pretty neutral color and will please girls who like some glitter and shimmer.

    And that lip gloss!! I got this set for the gloss alone. In the tube it looks absolutely wild but once applied the subtlety of it is what really drew me. It’s just a gorgeous nude but the iridescence keeps it interesting. On me it shows up very warm and I am just in love.

    Hi Christine,

    What lipstick/lipgloss are you wearing in the picture before one of you wearing the marvelous moxie gloss? Thanks!
