I saw the bareMinerals The Royal Court palette at the recent Christmas press day for the brand, and I remember thinking that it was going to be a very popular product – who doesn’t like a palette of glow-givers? – but that it probably wouldn’t be my sort of thing. It turns out we got it in our goody bags, but even then I didn’t really give it much attention until I had a bout of poorliness a couple of weeks ago, and boy did this trio of stars come into its own!
The bareMinerals The Royal Court is a trio of fan favourites in a “READY” format, so pressed, rather than loose. You get the Clear Radiance Highlighter, the Blush in Golden Gate and the All Over Face Color in Warmth. Clear Radiance is a lovely, pinky, “suits-most”shade that glimmers rather than glitters. The Golden Gate shade of the blush is real surprise, as it looks rather dull and almost bronzer-like in the palette, whereas on the skin it comes alive as a warm, deep, peachy blush shade that’s fabulously natural.
Warmth is quite a big product for the brand and it’s what I’d call an almost bronzer; by that I mean, it lifts skin and gives it that warmth that the title suggests, but I don’t think it’ll take you all the way to sunkissed, which is a very good thing as at this time of the year I think sunkissed looks horrendously unnatural!
As I said, I was pretty poorly and my skin broke-out, dried-out and just generally freaked out – it looked awful. I dragged the palette out and thought I’d give it a go, and it really did make such a difference – I’ve used it every day since and I can easily see myself hitting pan on this, which is very unusual for me. Clear Radiance and the blusher are getting the most use, although I am tending to use the full trio, but if Warmth fell out then I wouldn’t be too worried, whereas if any of the other two did, I would replace ASAP.
The bareMinerals The Royal Court is your one-stop-shop for giving skin incredible glow, warmth and light that looks very natural in an extremely flattering finish. The packaging is fine, although it might not hold up for travel, however, it comes in a pretty sturdy box which you can keep hold of if you’d like to take this out and about. It also has a mirror for on-the-go application. This palette is £25 which is just SO good! It has an apparent value of £52, but regardless, it’s a total bargain at £25 and I will have to nab another since it’s annoyingly limited edition. If you think this trio is for you, you might want to pop over to the site today (23.10.15) to pick it up as there’s currently 10% off for their Christmas preview – use code “ENCHANT” at checkout.

This is a gorgeous palette, I particularly love the shade of the blush. Great post! XO -Kim
Thanks Kim, it’s truly fab – the trio together give such a great glow! xx
