Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Insider Introducing Cheek Tint – Swatches & Thoughts

When I was out at Sephora with the lovely JoeyBunny we saw the Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Insider Introducing Cheek Tint kit at Sephora. We both adored it, and I eventually decided I had to have it, so I purchased it.

It comes with BareMinerals first blendable cheek stain in Flirt, Panache eyeshadow, Smolder liner, lipgloss in Cherry Bomb and a double ended brush. I actually liked every single item in the kit. Flirt is a pink shade that reminds me of the Aromaleigh Rocks! Sonic blush line. You only need the tiniest bit of powder to achieve a beautiful natural flush.

Panache is described as a sunlit pink, but I think it reads more as a peachy-pink with a pink-violet sheen. It’s really gorgeous and I’m not sure I can think of another similar color. Smolder is a fantastic dark smoky purple shade. Cherry Bomb is a very pretty, wearable gloss.


Here are all the products. I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the eye shadows and blush. I’m unsure if the brush is made with synthetic bristles or natural hair bristles.

Does it live up to its claims?
Yes. Honestly, I love every piece in this set. I’ve got an upcoming look with the set but I’ll give you a sneak peek. I like all the pieces. The blush definitely sticks around all day. I haven’t tested the gloss for wear, but it looks nice on. The eye shadows are actually great. They stuck around all day on my primer without creasing. Yay!

Would I purchase again?
Yes! I’m really happy with all of these products and I feel they work well together. So many times I pass up sets because I don’t think I’ll use one or more of the products included, but this set is a winner!

Product purchased by me. All opinions are my own.
