Warmth All-Over Face Color
Best bronzer ever
I've been using Warmth all-over face color for about 5 years now. I would never leave the house without putting it on. It's gives you the perfect color contrast without making you look too orange or brown. It makes my skin look vibrant, healthy and gives me the perfect glow. This product is for sure a must have for your makeup bag.
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.
