Sephora Favorites New 2016 Bronze Bares-All ❥ Review & Swatches

Sephora Favorites Bronze Bares-All Summer 2016

Sephora comes back this year with another Bronze Bares-All set! This one, like the majority of the latest Sephora Favorites, is summer perfection. I was however disappointed when I saw that Sephora chose Becca’s highlight in Opal again to garnish this set; Moonstone, Champagne Pop or Pearl would have been nice … or maybe throw in a blush in there (just saying)!!! Anyway, mine (just the highlight not the set) will go in my summer giveaway since I already own 3 of them!!! Other than that little mistake, it’s a gorgeous little gem, at the right price…

Vita Liberata pHenomenal “Light as Air” 2-3 Week Tinted Tan Mousse in Medium (Deluxe Sample)

Sephora Favorites Bronze Bares-All Summer 2016

I will write an update as soon as I try this self-tanner. I’m usually not a big fan since I really suck at applying them correctly.

Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner in Penny Lane  (Full-Size) 25$CND

Sephora Favorites Bronze Bares-All Summer 2016

I read so many mixed reviews about this liner that I was almost afraid to use it. My main concern was about the tip that is supposedly very fragile! Personally, I have nothing to complain about, love the rich golden brown shade, the zero transfer on my eyelids and it’s long wearing …

Note: I wouldn’t say it’s 100 % waterproof, after trying it on my arm!!!

Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna (Deluxe Sample)

Sephora Favorites Bronze Bares-All Summer 2016

A cult favorite for a good reason: it’s such a great bronzer for us, fair girls. It truly gives a natural, sun-kissed glow, not too shimmery and blends oh! so effortlessly. It’s one of these products that are universally good…

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Opal (Deluxe Sample)

Sephora Favorites Bronze Bares-All Summer 2016

You can read an extensive review (HERE). If you don’t already own it, you will find it to be very nice! Again, if like me, you have a few of these already in your stash, just share the love with your BBF!

Note: I rarely use Becca’s highlight, because I find them unflattering on skins with texture or more mature skins!

Tarte Amazonian butter lipstick in Park Ave. (Tiny … Deluxe Sample)

Sephora Favorites Bronze Bares-All Summer 2016

Gorgeous color!! I like the way it feels on my lips but I’ll be happy if by some miracle, I get 10 uses out of that very small sample. It’s so moisturizing I would have like a bigger size! Bravo Tarte for a stunning packaging (cardboard chic), but why so tiny?!?

Note: On my lips, it’s more of a sheer nude/pale lilac shade…

BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Trail Blazer (Full size) 23$CND

Sephora Favorites Bronze Bares-All Summer 2016

I’m a self-proclaimed lipgloss junkie! I think that glosses are way more flattering and youthful on the lips. That being said, my 4 favorite brands are Buxom, Nars, Marc Jacobs & bareMinerals. I would describe Marvellous Moxie Lipgloss as a “light”, not too thick or sticky, and actually very hydrating lipgloss. It is possibly the best “natural” formula I found, and by natural, I mean it does not have the parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. The color isn’t rich and opaque, but it’s nice and subtle, and stays quite long too. Two more things: it smells amazing and Trail Blazer is actually the most stunning peachy/nude!

Formula X The Colors – Revved Up in Rose Gold (Deluxe sample)

Sephora Favorites Bronze Bares-All Summer 2016

I really enjoy Formula X formulation and this particular rose gold shade is a beautiful addition to my summer beauty collection. Toe Nails perfection… If I ran out during summer, I will buy a full size!!! That says it all, knowing how many nail polishes I own …

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Copper (Full Size) 35$CND

Sephora Favorites Bronze Bares-All Summer 2016

These LM pencils are quickly becoming my holy grail and lately, the shade “Amethyst” has found a way to my everyday routine. These Caviar Stick Eye Colour pencils go on creamy, have unbelievable color payoff, don’t pull at all as you apply, blend so well, set quickly, and stay put for ages. I apply it all over the mobile lid and blend through the crease with a brush. It’s a wonderful wash of color that is perfect for your casual look but can easily be layered with other shadows for more dramatic results. I can’t recommend it enough… Copper is a metallic bronze color that will enhance any bronzing eye look for this summer.

Note: Warning!! Put back the lid very tightly after use if you don’t want it to dry up.

Yes! I put nail polish on my arm 🙂

I was already thinking of buying the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Copper for summer. Realizing that it was in a full size version in this year’s Sephora Favorites Bronze Bares-All, it really became a no-brainer to purchase the set and certainly became a good value for money since LM Caviar Stick is sold alone for 35$🇨🇦. Adding 13$ for seven more goodies was totally justifiable!!!

Just to try convincing you a little bit more, Smashbox Kohl Liner, bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss and the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick has a combined value of 83$CND!

Fact: Last year’s set was very good , but this year’s is a notch above Bronze Bares-All 2015.

  1. The LM pencil is what I like the most in this bunch! I’m all about convenience and great result as well and that pencil seemed to be just right up my alley! Love it!

    1. Don’t worry about not owning it since there is way better options on the market … I should precise more “natural looking options” 🙂
      It emphasize my wrinkles like crazy 😦 (I’m too old to be this “shinny”!!!:D) xxx

  2. I went to Sephora last night to attempt to return the BITE Agave mask and the line up was too long so I left. But I looked for this set and didn’t see it there. I have to buy it in person if I want to use my gift card! 😛
    Oooh yes I love the Laura Geller baked blushes! 😀
    I missed out on last year’s LW collection, I may have to look at this one! I love that packaging too.

    1. I almost buy all the Sephora Favorites sets and I’m rarely disappointed !!! The Laura Mercier Caviar Stick alone makes it great. Have you ever tried them? xxx

  3. This looks like such a beautiful set! A lot of these products can be worn with each other and I’d love to see you create a look using these 🙂 The Becca highlighter looks super sparkly and pretty! ❤

  4. I LOLed when I saw that you swatched the nail polish on your skin! 😀 Love that color SO much. It’s a really pretty box! Too bad they didn’t include a different Becca shade, though.

    1. For my fair skin I really like Nars Laguna, Tarte Park ave Princess & Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil … and I go with a light hand 😉
      Hourglass makes a stunning bronzer too (I tried it once!!!) xxxx

  5. Hah, I guess the Becca Opal has become the Nars Orgasm of sets! I received SO many of those and gave them away every time! I do like Nars Laguna though, although I gave it away as well since my friend would use it more than me. I’m just terrible about wearing bronzer! Do you use bronzer daily?
    Both of the lip products look amazing – totally colours I’d wear. And the LM pencil is Copper – GORGEOUS! I would have gotten this set just for that product alone too! Hmm darn it. Should I get this or not? I already have Opal too. Maybe I’ll just wait for the Autumn / winter sets.

    1. I do use bronzer everyday … I will forget to put some blush on but never my bronzer !!! Laguna is one of the great one out there, for someone who wants a natural look.
      I’m now afraid to give you any suggestions … 😛 If you are interested in the LM Caviar Stick & the BEAUTIFUL bareMinerals Lipgloss, than GRAB IT !!! The rest will just be icing on the cake …To me it’s a good value set !
      The Christmas sets are so different than this one … (The prices $$$ too)

      1. I’m opposite – 99% of the time I wear blush but maybe 10% I wear bronzer! I DO own a couple of the LM Caviar Sticks, and I love them, so NO worries! 😆 Hey, other recommendations you gave me worked out VERY well like the Becca Under Eye Corrector! 😀
        Hmmm maybe I will use my Sephora gift card for this set? You’re such an enabler!

      2. This summer I will use my new LM Caviar Sticks on a daily basis … As you know these are perfect for summer since they are 100% heatproof !!!
        Yes! you should grab this set with your gift card !!!😊
        Do you enjoy an hybrid product like your Laura Gellar BAKED BLUSH-N-BRIGHTEN ??? or you would like the Lise Watier NEW 😏 Escale Bronzer!!!
