  1. For anyone who missed out on this box and is interested, I just listed the entire box on the swap site.

  2. Got mine today by Fedex. The full size primer and all-over warmth (huge size) make the price worthwhile right there. Wish the pink bag was replaced by another real item, but at least it’s cute. The blush and lipstick are nice colors too.

    • I was really excited about the all over face color in warmth, but it is so dark! The website says it’s good for all skin tones, but there is no way I could wear that stuff. I’m still glad I got the box, but it’s a bummer that the largest item is so impossible to use.

      • I have tried warmth before. It used to come in their basic kit along with the foundation and mineral veil. It’s way too dark for me too. This is a “soft focus” version but I still think it’s going to be too dark for my fair skin.

      • You only need the tiniest amount of warmth to get a contour or rosy glow. There is a minute-long youtube video with Leslie Blodgett where she shows what a tiny amount you use.

  3. I just wanted to say thank you to Liz for posting this! I have just received my box and it is amazing!!!!!! I have not ever tried Bare Minerals before. I am in love with all the products that I received. My favorite product is probably face primer that I received. The primary shows up as a yellow base– but it does an excellent job covering up the purple under your eyes and any redness that you have on your face elsewhere. Although this is tinted it is a primer it is not a foundation it has a yellow base. I think I have just found one of my new products that I will continue to use. Just remember that this is not a foundation it is a primer and it must have color foundation on top of it. I am so happy that I was able to grab one of these boxes before they sold out to one of the best purchases I have made on the single box deals!!!
    Thanks Liz so very very much for posting this and I was so I can take advantage and grab one of these boxes! Know that your reviews are appreciated!
    (Sorry for any repeated words as I am getting sleepy. ?)

    • Yay – so glad you like the box! Haley will be reviewing this box too 🙂

  4. Just got my shipping notification. I’m excited to get so many brushes! I read some reviews on other sites of the last couple mystery bags and one girl got like 8 eyeliners. I was nervous!

    • The last box had a bonus code and that was how she got the set of eyeliners. It was in addition to the two other sets that were the main mystery box.
      I’m not sure about anyone else but this box is pretty much everything that has been in at least the past few boxes. Two of the brushes are duplicates, as for the eyeliner, lipstick and lipgloss. They have all in the last two mystery boxes. Not complaining as I love the Raise the Bar lipstick and the brushes so well worth the value but how long do products last in a warehouse?

    • This is what’s in my mystery box:

    • Sorry I forgot to remove item 77788, that was something I ordered in addition to the mystery box. Sorry! 🙂

      • @Gina – thank you for the reveal! I am excited at the assortment and glad I ordered this thanks to the 3 brushes being included.

        • Me too! I have a brush addiction, especially eye brushes!

    • I got the same, except instead of the lasting line liner, mine has:
      1 71664 Marv Moxie L/G 3.5ml-Rule Breaker-NB(O1)

      • Oh man! I am totally on eyeliner overload!!! I would rather have a lip product instead. Still a good value for the price- I love eye brushes so those alone are worth the price for me. 🙂

        • Agreed! Not a fan of their eyeliners, and have several now. But glad to see there wasn’t a 5-in-1 eyeshadow which they overloaded in boxes last year.

          • Really? I just got a black Lasting Line in a swap and I am in love!

  6. So glad this was out of stock before I got to it lol would have bought it, don’t need it. ?

  7. Mystery Offer 1 is Prime Time Foundation
    Mystery Offer 2 is small Mineral Veil???
    Mystery Offer 3 is All Over Face Color
    Mystery Offer 4 is Eyeliner
    Mystery Offer 5 is Eyeliner
    Mystery Offer 6 is Compact Blush
    Mystery Offer 7 is Lipstick
    Mystery Offer 10 is Crease Defining Brush
    Mystery Offer 11 is Perfect Coverage Concealer dual ended brush

    • How do you know this?

      • It was in my order summary.

    • Where did you get that info? I don’t see how they’re going to send out foundation without knowing your skin tone.

    • Oh I hope you are correct! I love the dual ended brush I received with the last mystery box. So I’m all about collecting a few more of their brushes. I’m wondering if that first item is actually a face primer, not foundation. That would make more sense, and make me happy. I love their primer. All the rest of the goodies are probably useful too. With any of these boxes, if I don’t like the product, my 17 year old sister does. Go figure, an almost-30-year old professional, and a 17-year old, very hip high scholar have opposite tastes in makeup. Add in very different coloring and skin types (she’s blonde, with a warm toned oil-prone skin compared to my brunette hair, pale pink and super dry skin) and generally we are able to put every item in every box to use. It also helps me maintain my status as “the cool big sister” lol.

      • @Jennifer – same, I am hoping vmb64 is correct, because I am hoping for the 2 brushes. And I do think the Prime Time product is actually a primer not foundation. I am 49 and have a 19 year old daughter and we do the same thing with the boxes. Generally, whatever items I don’t like she does, so we use just about every single item from every box. It’s awesome to have someone to split it up with because no one person is going to like every item in every sub box. It makes me feel better about the cost when I know all the items are put to use.

        • You are correct, it’s the primer. I mistyped it. I love the primer too!

    • Wow. That would be a steal for $35!! I didn’t love the last box – way too many eye products (although it was still a decent value) but this seems more diverse. Finger crossed!!

    • What’s Mystery #12? 🙂

  8. I just put in my order at 3:26 Eastern time. So it is still not sold out.

  9. I just put in my order at 3:26 Eastern time. So it is still not sold out. Waiting on the confirmation email but I did get a confirmation order # at checkout.

  10. For those that keep getting error messages or that it’s sold out, keep trying. I just finally got a confirmation after trying for a while. I skipped the create an account part and just checked out as a guest and it worked 🙂

  11. Frustrating, after trying to order it for 20 min, its now sold out

    • Try it again. The same thing happened to me but I re-did my order and got a confirmation #.

    • I just got one, so try again. Maybe they released more.

  12. It wont let me purchase one, keeps saying error and declining my card, even though there is enough money

  13. Anyone know if there is a ‘profile’ quiz before purchase? I’d love to get this, but don’t want to end up with foundation/cover up that is WAY off from my skin tone.

    • Nope, no profile questionnaire. It is just a roll of the dice.

    • KC-

      In the past, when containing tone-specific products such as the foundations/concealers/anything else dependent upon knowing your shade, you’re prompted to select from the drop-down menu to ensure your matched correctly. Based upon several past experiences, those BM boxes that will not contain such products requiring shade matches will not prompt a shade choice.

      Sorry I’m rambling and probably just created more confusion than abated…

      Basically, if no drop down menu or prompt is presented, those types of products will not be a part of that particular surprise collection campaign. I ordered mine early this morning and no such prompts came up, so I feel confident in stating shade match products will not be a part of this particular installment. Make sense? I’m sure there are a hundred other ways to have said that in a much more clear way, but what would be the fun in that?! ?

      So- ORDER ONE ASAP BEFORE THEY ARE SOLD OUT!!! Which most likely will be anytime in the next hour or maybe even less. I can 99% guarantee you’ll love your box and be happy you decided to go for it ?

      <3 bm ❤️?

  14. I honestly love these boxes. I love bareminerals and I have yet to be disappointed by a box. The value is always there. I look forward to these every couple of months when they pop up on sales

  15. The last box was perfect in my book, the Modern Fairytale Collection plus Marvellous Moxie lippie and an eyeliner. Also the POP lip trio with the code.
    I see that previous boxes have been an assortment of individual items, some of them colour specific. As in, wouldn’t suit my neon white complexion.
    This box has a lower value and no extra-items-with-code so I’ll pass.

  16. what WAS in the last box? trying to decide if I need to order this… or just stay away

    • Review on the site from July shows 2 eyeliners, lip gloss, primer, eye primer, concealer, a brush, mineral shadow, cream shadow, mineral veil, and a bag. 11 items for $35.

      • This was not a bad box to get. I just ordered the new one. But……..the last time I bought some mineral shadow it was $32, and this was from Drug Store.com (a fairly reasonable site). I would of gladly taken the mineral shadow and every thing else in the box for $35. I know personally that the rare few things I bought from Bare Mineral are not drug store cheap…..rather pricey. I guess I’ll see soon!!

  17. I ordered this last time and it was total bust lol I’ll have to see a few reviews before I jump in again. Seems like the products are always leftovers. I did enjoy the brushes though 🙂

    • The last one was a bust. I’ll agree with you on that. The one two weeks prior was great. I’ll take my chances for $35. Besides foundation I can’t remember the last time I’ve had to buy makeup because they’ve been so good.

  18. They’re on to is! Lol All the confirmation email says is Mystery Box US130367. No list of details or products. When you Google the number it goes to their website and shows a list of Mystery Offer #1, Mystery Offer # 2, etc.
    We have to wait to be surprised?!?

    • Thanks for putting in the work though! I appreciate how you followed up!

    • How long did it take you to get a confirmation e-mail? Still haven’t received mine… And I didn’t set up an account, so can’t check in.

      • Maybe a few minutes? Not long at all.

        • Well, it’s showing on my credit card activity, so hopefully it went through!

    • Sometimes mine would only show on the shipping conf. email!

  19. Comment

  20. Just ordered it so I’ll post the contents as soon as I get the confirmation email.
