Bare Minerals Away We Glow.. Gift Set

This was one of the beauty related presents I got for christmas this year and I love it! I've not tried lots of Bare Minerals products so this set has given me the chance to try a good range of products.
The first thing I want to say id how beautiful the packaging is, the box is such good quality and I will have to find a use for it since it's too good to throw away!
All the lids and the brushes are in a limited edition red instead of the normal black for christmas which I thought was a really nice touch. So the first thing in the set is an eyecolour in 'Swanky' (smallest pot) and it is a very pigmented loose powder in a white/cream shimmer. I love this and I think it would make a great iner-corner highlight. Next is a multi-tasker highlighter in 'Turn On' which is a lovely shimmery pink colour which can be used on the cheeks, eyes and even lips. This kind of reminds me of Benefits High Beam in a powder. The final pot is a blush in 'Luxury' which is a gorgeous shimmery pink and it really makes your skin glow. 
The two brushes in the set are a blush contour brush and a wet/dry shadow brush, both of these are very soft, easy to use and would be perfect for travel due to them being smaller than the average brush. 
Next is a Prime Time Shadow Primer in 'Dove Gray', this is a great eyelid primer and lasts all day very well, it is a shimmery gray colour which is very easy to build to make a more dramtic look. 

The Flawless Definition Mascara is probably my favourite thing in the set, it has a plastic brush that is tapered to the end making it so easy to get every lash. It makes my lashes look long but still natural. It is so easy to build to have a more dramatic look, i'm already in love with this mascara and will definitely be repurchasing it. 
The Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliner in 'Midnight' this is a very pigmented matte black eyeliner and lasts all day on the waterline without smudging. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who suffers from watery eyes.
Finally is the Pretty Amazing lipgloss in 'Flair' this is a lovely pale pink colour, it is well pigmented for a gloss and would be great for everyday wear. This doesn't last amazingly on the lips but very few glosses do so I don't mind re-applying because it is a lovely colour on.

I really do love this set and it cost £38.50 which is such a good price since the products added together are worth a lot more. It was in the sale on feelunique.com but has already sold out which doesn't surprise me. I did find it available on beautybay.com for £29.99. No doubt there will also be a few on ebay.
