Read on to get a closer look at what is included in the set and see swatches of the colors.
While not quite the same size as a full sized brush (I don't have "regular" bareMinerals brushes, I mean just regular brushes in general), these brushes really are a very good size.
They aren't skimpy by any stretch of the imagination. The eye shadow brush is a great size for a light wash of color or blending shadows. The Flawless Face brush is either a really big blush brush, or really just the perfect size for the All-Over Face Color to be applied with a light hand. I'll definitely be reaching for it frequently for the all over color or a bronzer. The bristles are very soft, color doesn't stick unevenly to them (don't you hate when that happens?) and I had no issues with bristles being loose, though obviously I just got this set!
The Rose Gold Radiance is a new shade, so you don't have it yet in your bareMinerals collection. It is a pretty universally flattering color, though it was more pigmented than I though an all over color like this would be, this swatch is a very small amount spread on my arm with my fingertip. If you do plan on using it all over to help add a bit of color to your face, I would use a light hand and a very large brush. It would work very well as a blush as well, which is likely how I'll be using it.
Note that this color came in a small canister as a loose powder, though the canister was opened by pulling out a plastic plug to open the holes to allow product out. I kept the little plug and it was easily reinserted. So, it should be easy to travel with!
Finally, the shadows! I found the Azure Iris to be a very pretty light lilac color, slightly more pigmented than a very similar shade I had by Lorac a few years ago. That I used until I hit pan. I've already worn this as a light wash on my lids, it was so pretty! While described as "illuminated", I found it to be a matte shade. The Golden Iris has a bit more depth with some slight golden shimmer. It's very pretty but not "too much" shimmer, which I really liked. It's an easy one to use in a huge number of eye looks, but it looks great alone with the 10 pm eye liner as well.
The shadows are a bit powdery, meaning with normal brushing I thought I picked up a bit more powder than I'm used to getting. However, the shadows were well pigmented, blended easily and did last all day without creasing or disappearing.
