Warmth All-Over Face Color
Best blush ever.
I have had the same warmth since the first starter kit i purchased in 2003. I use the small kabuki brush to apply and the finest dusting in the lid is all you need. i am so pale (with freckles) its like my neck is translucent. but with proper application i can flush my cheeks chin and nose without it looking too made up.
i find that tapping the brush once in each area you are going to apply before you swirl helps distribute more evenly.
Great alternative to blush
I personally really like the warmth. I like adding natural glow and color to my face but I don't care so much for pink blushes because it is not natural looking to me. I want to look sun-kissed. I apply directly on my cheekbones and bridge of nose and dust a light remaining amount all over my face. When I first started wearing people noticed that I looked tanner like I'd been in the sun (but really I wasn't in the sun!). I will say though that I think this is too harsh of a color for those with fair skin tones. I have a medium complexion and use Medium Beige in the original luminous powder foundation and it works good for me. I could see it being too dark for someone with fair skin.
Don't give up on warmth
Way back when I first started using Bare Minerals, the kit I received had a small sample of warmth in it. Like a few others I see leaving reviews on here, I thought it seemed far too dark for my fair skintone, and I gave up on using it. However, as I became more addicted to BE and started experimenting with colors more, and learned you do not need to use much of any BE product to get the look you want, I learned how to use a _tiny_ bit of warmth on an angled face brush or a blush brush with great results. Then I discovered something even better. See, my skin is strange in that I have light patches under my eyes (I still get dark circles, but the skin around my eyes seems to be more translucent or something) that I never did like the look of, and always drove me crazy. One day, I was applying warmth as usual and decided to try using it to conceal my 'light circles'. It worked perfectly! I love using it now to even out my skintone and darken my lighter spots after I apply foundation. For those of you that have uneven patches of skin, try using a little warmth to even things up. It only takes a tiny amount (I just barely touch the tips of some of the brush bristles to the minerals) to make a difference.
I was skeptical about this product, but it came with the Customizable Get Started Kit; so, I gave it a whirl. I am so glad that I did. I have very fair skin and was worried that it would be too dark. It applies perfectly and doesn't look like I have makeup on--just great skin. I always get compliments on my skin now!
I love this product. Even though I am African American I love warmth!! People always tell me I look like I have a nice summer glow all year round without getting the 365 days of summer sun.
A little goes a long way
I'm Asian Chinese with medium skin tone (yellow based) and I gotten this from the Starter Kit from Sephora. First impression, the packaging is huge! I don't need that much brown powder on my face. After trying it out, I have to admit. I looked really good in pictures - not the usualface that looked "flat" after foundation. It gave me a natural glow and contoured my face. I swept it across the side of my forehead, my cheekbones to my jawline following to the number 3. I wouldn't say this a must-have in my makeup collection as I don't use bronzers but now, I am pretty convinced that Warmth will help you look complete!
I'm noy actually a fan of bronzers, but I tried the face color as a bronzer and it was beautiful. I used it also when my foundation was a little too light. I applied the foundation first, then I applied the face color on top until it blended evenly with my skintone. I liked it.
Not for me
I really hate this color i much rather the "high dive " bronzer
This is a great all over face color. I love the original foundation but the ingredient that gives that "lit from within glow" can sometimes leave my skin looking a bit ashen. I use warmth to counter this. Warmth adds dimension to may face and gives me a very nice natural hint of color. I typically use it as my stand alone color after I apply my foundation. However, I also use it to do contouring when I wear blush and want a more made up look.
Beautiful on fair skin
When I saw the brownish red color of this in my kit, I thought there was no way that it would work. However, I was surprised to learn that it blends amazing with my skin tones. I am extremely fair skinned and it gives me a sunkissed glow that contours my cheeks and gives me a really nice finish look. Will definitely be in my reorder!
