The First Resort
I Really Like The First Resort
I have had a hard time finding a blush that I truly loved. I prefer a neutral/nude/soft makeup look. I have used warmth and several other blushes but the colors just weren't right to me. I've never tried a bronzer before because I didn't think they would show up on my skin. I am African-American and I wear Tan in BM original foundation. I saw this bronzer on sale and decided to give it a try. And wow, I'm glad I did! This is what I've been looking for! I swirled all the colors in The First Resort together and brushed it lightly it on my cheeks with the brush included with the kit. It gave my cheeks a really soft, nice glow. It didn't add any color but remember I'm not looking for bold color and I didn't use it in the bronzer "pattern". I'm trying to tone down the blush colors I already have. I really liked the way it looked and I could have worn it alone. But I decided to add blush to the "apples" of my cheeks and blended it with a different BM feather-light radiance brush #the first timed I used BM ready-the Confession, the second time I used BM loose-the Secret# and I love the way it makes my blush look. It gives my blush very soft, natural looking glow with a hint of color. It highlights in all the right places without being too shiny or shimmery. Now that being said I don't know how this would look alone on someone with deeper skin tones if you like more pronounced color. My guess is it would give you a glow and/or highlights too. I wish someone would write a review and let me know. Now on to the Moxie lip gloss. It smells good, looks better on than it does in the package and better when another lip color is put on under it. It made my lips tingle and I didn't like that. I have never used Moxie gloss and I don't know if it's supposed to make your lips tingle. So I won't use it again, at least until I find out if it's supposed to do that. I love the bronzer and brush enough to give it 5 stars even though I don't really care for the Moxie gloss.
I have tried so many different bronzers and none of them have ever compared to this one. I have gotten so many compliments on my complexion (which never happens) when I wear this bronzer, I'd never try another one again. Please sell Bronzer separately and please do NOT discontinue. Thanks!
Totally Natural Tan
I never write reviews nor do I rush out to buy 2 more of something I love but that's just what I'm doing with this bronzer. My natural red head look is naturally tan thanks to this and the awesome fan brush. I mail ordered after seeing a pop up ad and it arrived last night. I was so thrilled with the look I immediately called my local BE boutique but was told it was a One Up product and only available on line. Horrors! How could BE not make this forever?? I placed an order for 2 more, one for me and one for my mom who is darker but needs a good bronzer, one that won't make either of us orange or too shiny. Love this! PLEASE KEEP THIS IN STOCK FOREVER!
I bought The First Resort about a month ago (last one in the store! Woohoo!) and I absolutely love it! I have tan skin already, so I didn't think it was necessary, but after everyone insisted, I decided to go with it. It adds a beautiful, not fake glow that I absolutely love! And the lipgloss that comes with it seems to work for everyone. I'm extremely picky about my lip colors, so I was, again, hesitant to try it. And yet again, I was pleasantly surprised! This is definitely a product you don't want to do without during the summer.
I recently bought first resort and absolutely love it! I am extremely fair, (porcelain in the brightening foundation) however the bronzer never made me look an unatural shade of orange. I don't have prominent cheekbones or a defined jawline and first resort was the perfect solution! Although it took me three times to master the cheekbone look, the brush really makes the process a lot more simple compared to my previous bronzers. In addition, the coral lipgloss really made my fair features pop! I would totally recommend this product to anyone!
Best Bronzer Yet!
Ive loved this company since 2004 when their product first landed in our spa and I have to say this is one of their best products yet! This bronzer is amazing! I am in need of more already but hate that I have to buy the entire kit. PLEASE START SELLING JUST THE BRONZER TRIO!!!!!
Best Bronzer Ever
The bronzer is the best thing ever, I have to mix bronzer with highlighter normally, I have a super fair skin tone and can't tan, so I love having a bronzer to bring life to my face with out looking overdone. The lipgloss is great (all the moxie lipgloss are) and not to bright. The fan brush is a amazing and made it so I use bronzer most days instead of just when I am going to an event.
Perfect for me!
I love the bronzer an wear it every day. The fan brush gives just the right amount and a quick brush over my cheekbones highlights my face and makes me look years younger. I didn't think I would like the color of the lipgloss but I really do! It's nice and light and even tastes good which is a nice bonus.
It's a keeper!!
I love this bronzer. It's not orangey or reddish like the warmth or other bronzers I've tried. It creates a beautiful golden glow that I have received many compliments such as, "You have such a nice tan!" and "Your skin looks so great!" I just wiggle the brush through the middle of all three shades, and start at my hairline and sweep down my forehead, cheeks and neck. The lipgloss is a gorgeous pinky peach shade and smells amazing, long wearing and very hydrating for a lipgloss too.
Fabulous color and illuminosity!!
I swipe this over my face and I look tan and glowing and I am almost 50. It makes my skin look fantastic! I looooovvvveee it and am buying more today! It's my new favorite product.
I don't tan my face, but do tan the rest of my body so I need color on my face. I don't like to wear much makeup in the summer (too hot, it feels gross, etc. etc.) so this is just perfect.
This kit is so amazing! It is such a great value and the Fan Brush is a must have. Perfect for summer!
Is a nice product but not wowed. I'd rather save my money and keep using the warmth. I do see were fair skinned people would like. No messing it up and natural. Will keep but not buy again. The lip gloss is very pretty and I do like.
Creates a nice glow!
I love this bronzer. It gives you a nice glow without being too dark or orange. I think this would work with lots of skintones. The lipgloss is a really pretty summer color. I've gotten a lot of compliments on it.
I was hesitant at first to buy this because I own about 5 other bronzers, but I've never found one that I LOVE, probably why I keep buying them - in search of "the one" .... my search is now over. I am IN LOVE with this bronzer kit.
The trio of colors really makes this a no brainer. I blend them all together using the fan brush and apply in the a-typical "3" shape to accent brow bones/cheek bones/jawline. I am VERY fair skinned, most bronzers make me look sort of orange or are too dark. Even the award winning 'warmth' from BE makes me look sorta orange. NOT THIS ONE!!! -- Have no fear my fair skinned ladies, the first resort is here!
My whole purpose in this kit is the bronzer, the lipgloss shade isn't my color of choice. It's not bad per se, I just don't rock coral colors very often. But Im a sucker for the MM glosses in general so I am pleased with it.
The fan brush is fuller than the one I already own and very nice, makes contouring the cheekbones a breeze
Bottom line - i HOPE they keep at LEAST the bronzer trio around as I would buy this again and again... and if you're on the fence about this, don't be - just buy it, you will love it.
Sunkissed not Orange
I have been a forever devotee to Nars Laguna bronzer because it gives my light skin tone a healthy glow as opposed to a nasty orange cast like most bronzers do. When I saw this kit I decided to give it a try over re-purchasing Nars and I am so happy I did. The brush makes for a perfect and flawless application and the combination of the three bronzers mixed together give you that "I've-been-in-the-sun-for-a-week-on-vacation" look without looking like you overdid the orange bronzer from the drug store.
The lip gloss is another Moxie lip gloss perfection. I think I have upwards of 5 different colors and wear them on a daily basis. This color is perfect for an everyday look with a pretty natural peach-y color that plays nicely with the bronzer. I often layer it over a punchier lipstick if I want it brighter.
I am pretty fair (wear original in fairly light and use original bisque). I really wanted to try a bronzer...but I was nervous it would look fake on me. I tried this today and I am floored! It looks really natural...just a little glow. The brush is spectacular....definitely helps achieve the natural look. I wasn't sure if I would like the color of the lip gloss....but it is really pretty. Nice kit...thanks BE!!
sunkissed in the snow
Just received the First Resort and had to try it. I really couldn't get the special brush to work, so I tried one of my other Bare Escentuals brushes. That one worked. I swept it across all the "colors" and brushed it on a bare face (just moisturizer, no foundation). Love it!! I feel sunkissed on this snowy, windswept day. Very natural looking on my fair skin.
My skin is medium/tan. I tried this bronzer and lip gloss and absolutely love it. I use it sparingly and it still gives me a very nice glow. I really like the lip gloss. It brightens up my smile. My friend at works wants to try it too. Since I like it so much... I bought two! I don't want to risk not being able to have it through the summer.
I purchased this at a Bare Escentuals boutique shop. I love the bronzer, just enough goes on your face, but it makes a big difference. Kissed by the sun! Love the lipgloss. Looks great! The wand works great with that angle, much better than a straight wand.
I have use Bare Minerals for about 6 years now and am very pleased with just about everything.
You always come out with new exciting products. So fun!
Must have summer product
Everything about this collection is fabulous. The Bronzer is beautiful and very elegant, the shimmer is subtle, I especially love that it looks so good on the eyes! A perfect palette. The lip gloss compliments perfectly. I've never used a fan brush before and, I like it. The brush "picks up" enough color from the palette to create a not so over-done look on the skin. Bronzers can be tricky but, there is a believable, healthy look with the First Resort.
Brand New to Bare Minerals
As my title says, I have never used or had an interest in Bare Minerals. I have been using MAC, Bobby Brown & Kiehls forever. I was at the mall yesterday with my daughter, on the way to B. Brown counter & she told me her college room mates all use Bare Minerals (as we walked past the boutique). I was willing to go in with her to look around & saw First Resort. The girl in the store put it on both of us & I said, its worth a shot & bought it. I cannot say enough about it! I love love love it!!!Mixing all 3 colors together is perfect for my skin tones & I keep looking at myself in the mirror all day today! This is a must for everybody!! The lip gloss is fabulous too... not sticky & smells lovely!
I am new to bare minerals and I've wanted to try bronzer for so long I am glad I bought this. Love the lip gloss
Bringing out the beach goddess in me
I have been wearing this for the past few weeks and I am loving it. The First Resort color boost is silky and looks great on. You can choose which color or mix them all together. I contoured and highlighted as well as added the lighter shade to define my eye crease. Pop on the perfectly paired lip gloss and it looks amazing. I never thought I'd be able to carry off that coral lip color but it's safe enough even for those of us not used to a bold color. The packaging is a beautiful bronze color which is fun and makes for easy identification in my makeup collection. The fan stroke brush is different from another that I have from BM but I thought it was better, handle a bit longer and fan more firm and makes for better application.
The First Resort
I just received this last week. I love the colors of these bronzers and they blend together well or look good used separately. The brush gives you just the right amount without looking overdone. The lipgloss is a great color. I am fair complected and sometimes cannot use bronzers or bright colors but these work amazingly well for me. Am very glad I purchased this set.
