Bare Minerals Floral Utopia collection swatches

I am a long time Bare Minerals fan. Combine that with this beautiful packaging and all I knew was I had to have it. I did skip the highlighter because I wouldn’t use it and a couple of the lip colors because I really didn’t need them. But I could not resist the orchid looking color because that is my jam.

This is actually my first Gen Nude eyeshadow palette. The purple sold me. Four of the shades are lighter and more diffused color wise, but the violet shade and the deep plum are packed with pigment. I will do a tutorial with this soon.

I am very familiar with Gen Nude blushes and they quickly became my favorite blush formula. I like a blush I can build up vs one I have to sheer down. These are bright without being harsh. Anyone can wear these shades. Don’t be fooled by what you see in the pan.

Tropical Orchid

Blooming Poppy

Lastly, I had to get this lip color. If you know me, you know I can’t pass up a cool toned pink, mauve, or rose. This shade is stunning and screams Spring to me. I had a hard time getting the camera to show an accurate representation but this is close.

Orchid-ing Around

I am in love with this collection and so happy that I purchased it. I can see myself getting lots of use out of it. If you love orchid and cool tones as much as me, you will love this.

They also have a QVC exclusive set available now on This set includes the same eyeshadow palette with exclusive shades of the blush, highlight, and lipgloss.

I’d love to add the blush and gloss to my collection but don’t want to purchase the whole set to get it.

What is your favorite item from the collection? What will you be purchasing?

See you next time, and thanks for stopping by!
