Give This Holiday Set And Be The Star of the Show!

It’s the holiday season and time to check your list twice to see who’s been “naughty” or “nice” and bareMinerals Main Attraction is the gift for those on your list who have been NICE (all caps, none of that lower case nonsense)!


I love gifting makeup to my friends, but I hate giving makeup collections or gifts that feel incomplete – that is not a problem with this set! Containing everything you need to get glam and gorgeous, bareMinerals Main Attraction is what every girl wants under her tree. Or menorah. Or wherever you find presents!


The set comes packaged in a gorgeous red box that is perfect for gift giving. When you open the magnetic clasp, the box opens to reveal a mini vanity with a MASSIVE mirror against a dramatic harlequin background.

You also get to partake in the majesty that is this seven item collection. This set contains:



Mini Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Make Your Move – This super saturated warm neutral pink lipstick leaves lips looking smoother and fuller. I don’t usually use shades that are as light as this (I am pale and am drawn to deep colors), but this paired with the gloss in this set are just so incredibly flattering.


Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Leading Lady – This sheer shimmering shell gives you a voluptuous pout and looks great alone, but really elevates the beauty of Make Your Move when layered on top.


bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0 in The Curtain Call – This duo contains Matinee, a blushed pearl and Opening Night, a spiced mocha that delivers 12-hours of wear and contains bareMineral’s proprietary SeaNutritive Mineral complex, powerful anti-oxidants, cold-pressed borage oil, caffeine, and cucumber for anti-aging and de-puffing, helping eyes to look refreshed and youthful.

Worth noting: I experienced zero creasing from these shadows, a rarity for this oily-lidded gal. I’m in love!


Flair Blush – As weheartthis’ resident blush addict, I have to say that bareMinerals loose powder blushes never disappoint, but this shade – a natural, shimmering warm plummy rose – is TRANSFORMATIVE.

I put everything from this collection on first and was like, “Well this looks really pretty.” And then I applied this blush and was like, “OMG! I look like a freaking supermodel! Where has this blush been all of my life???”


This is both natural and dramatic – it’s the most natural looking blush that still manages to deliver glamour. It’s that good, ladies. If you’re on the fence about this set, know that this blush is currently only available in this set.


Lash Domination 10-in-1 Volumizing Mascara in Intense Black – This creamy mascara leaves lashes thickened and soot black and utilizes their exclusive ProTwist180 wand that coats lashes from all angles. Two coats made me look like I had twice as many lashes. WOOT!


Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliner in Absolute Black – This long-wearing eyeliner is the blackest black that never looks harsh and blends like a dream. I usually shun black liners because my oily lids make the line travel to my upper eyelid, but I didn’t experience that with this liner – it just faded over the course of the day to a more subtle line. I’m so happy to finally find a black liner that works for me!


Tapered Blush Brush – This soft brush applies Flair Blush like a dream. It buffs color into the most natural flush with very little effort. This gives a flawless application every time.

Krista resides in the middle of nowhere with her bff/hubby and a puppy that makes feral capuchins seem mellow. She has an irrational fear of ax murder, owns more than one machete for home defense/the zombie apocalypse, and goes to sleep serenaded by the sounds of the Chupagobbler, a mythical turkey beast that roams the woods around her house. Krista has been in the Bermuda Triangle twice and still hasn’t vanished. She is super proud of that.

  1. A bareMinerals gift set with this many beautiful colors, on SALE?! Sorry I can’t stick around to write a longer comment, I have shopping to do. The lipstick/lipgloss combo in particular is irresistible to me. Fab review as always, @krista !

  2. I’m running to Sephora as soon as the mall opens for this! I’m totally in love with the colors! Your comment on the blush got me!

    1. @vyrleeblake —The blush is really that good. I’ve pretty much worn it non-stop since I got it. It is magical.

  3. This set is perfection. Easy, beautiful colors that would look good on anyone. I hope more than a few of you were able to pick it up.

    @krista – you surprised me with loving this blush so much. I thought it was pretty, but I didn’t see the magic. But then, I am not as in touch with blush as you are…
