Warmth All-Over Face Color
Great Contourer, But Really Dark For Light Skin
I received "Warmth" w/ my starter kit (fair) about six years ago. I use it so sparingly (only the dust in the lid, then tap THAT off) that my pot is still about 2/3 full. It is good for contouring the hollows of cheeks, under the chin (the "3"'s of the face, more or less). However, the problem I have with it is it tends to look fake or orange on my very fair skin. It does work nicely as an eyeshadow, especially if you just brush the extra from your brush over your lids, followed by the same with your blush brush. It's a VERY quick, natural look. I wish that BE would give customers the option of buying "Bisque" multi-tasker in place of this in the starter kit, because to me, "Bisque" is an absolute must-have, while not everyone may be interested in "Warmth".
Love this stuff!
This took the place of my drug store bronzer! I love how it gives depth to my face and how natural it looks on. It blends very well. This powder has gave my face a healthy sun kissed warm color all winter long :)
Makes you look "sun-kissed"
I love Warmth. It is true that using very little and building up the color as needed is the best way to wear it. After a few months of using it I finally figured out how to use less to get the look I wanted. Two of my sisters also use it and they always have a healthy glow after brushing it on; one has very light skin, the other more of a tan. My skin tone is somewhere in the middle of my sisters and it's even perfect for me, although I was very skeptical at first. Even if I don't wear foundation, I wear Warmth; that and a little lip gloss and I'm ready to go.
I wear the lightest foundation BE offers (Fair). I use a small amount of Warmth on my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, chin, and lastly on my eyes. Since my skin is so pale Warmth gives my face a touch of sunshine to make my skin have a healthy (rather than super pale) color. Also, since I use such a tiny amount of Warmth each day my pot will last me years to use up.
A few years ago I didn't bother with this from the kit because (for whatever reason) I couldn't get it on light enough. Well, I guess I've become a little more talented with the brush, and it is the only face color I use. I tend to have rosacea-like reddening on my cheeks, so using a blush is very unnecessary for me. I do tan but tend to use alot of sunscreen, so I always look pretty light, but WARMTH gives just enough "highlights" to my face for contouring and the advertised sun-kissed look.
I love this product, my skin is very pale and it gives me a nice color, almost like a sun tan. The only thing I would say is to make sure you aren't using too much, that was my problem when I first starting using it, however its very true when they say less is more. Great product! Especially for the winter when I have no color in my skin.
Don't let the color scare you
When I first got the warmth in my get started kit, I didn't want to try it, it looked so dark. One weekend when I had some time I decided to try it and figured I could wash it off if I didn't like it. Well I LOVE IT! It looks so good, it's not too dark, it completes your look and gives you a soft sun-kissed look. This is something I cannot go without, it's the best bronzer type product out there.
Great for contouring!
I absolutely love this product for contouring my cheeks! I know a lot of women who use it as eyeshadow as well.
I love this product! It gives me that extra hint of color that I like. I also like to use it for my blush and as an eye shadow...
