Maybe you can grin and & bare it...

I was super lucky this Christmas and got this Gorgeous BE 'The Grand' collection. It's amazing value to at just over £40, as you get the BE brushes included RRP of these items would take you well over £80

The box is stunning too, it's a giant version of their classic foundation pot.

  • 1 x Original SPF15 Foundation (2g) available in Fair, Fairly Light, Light, Medium, Medium Beige, Medium Tan, Tan, Medium Dark - award-winning 100% pure mineral foundation looks like a powder, feels like a cream and buffs on like silk for flawless coverage with natural luminosity
  • 1 x Tickled Blush - Ripe Watermelon (0.85g) - creamy blush adds a cheerful, radiant glow to your complexion in a ripe watermelon shade
  • 1 x Emotion Matte Eye Colour - Dark Amethyst (0.57g) - provides a gorgeous matte base for dramatic definition that's beautiful alone or layered with other eyeshadows
  • 1 x Prime Time Primer Shadow in Cameo Pink (3ml) - waterproof primer shadow provides an intense pop of pink coral in a lightweight texture. Wear alone or layered with an eyeshadow for endless gorgeous possibilities
  • 1 x Waterproof Eyeliner in Midnight - Blackout (1.27g) - formulated to glide on effortlessly, this waterproof eye pencil delivers rich, creamy colour that won't smudge all day and all night
  • 1 x Flawless Definition Curl & Lengthen Mascara - Black (10ml) - new mascara delivers maximum curl for dramatically longer-looking lashes with extra body and definition
  • 1 x Hydrating Lip Tint in Juicy - Vivid Berry (5.5ml) - long-wearing lip tint allows you to build your colour for vivid berry stained lips with a dewy glow
  • 1 x Long Handle Face Brush - the natural, soft-tapered bristles of this brush are designed to provide light-to-medium coverage for easy, professional-looking application of your foundation and blush
  • 1 x Long Handle Tapered Shadow Brush - this versatile brush doubles as both a contour eye colour brush and eyeliner brush. It perfectly applies colour to small areas like the lid, or use the tip to expertly buff liner shadow along the lash line
You can literally use this set for day to night looks, if youve not tried BE make up before then I recommend you pop along to your local BE counter and they'll give you a sample of their foundation to try out, usually a week's worth plus a super cute brush!

The minerals in their products are really different to liquid foundation, and you may find that you feel very 'naked' the first time you use it, as it enchances your natural features rather than 'hiding' them, they are designed to give you a glowing look, and once your used to them you'll never go back to liquid foundation ever again!

Some swatches of the products...

Swatch: Juicy Lip Tint

Swatch: Emotion Matt Eyecolour, top line is using a wet brush & the bottom line is just the powder.
Swatch: Cameo Pink Prime Time Eyecolour, can be worn alone or under your fave shadow for real staying power!
