BareMinerals’ Absolutely Radiant kit

BareMinerals’ Absolutely Radiant kit

Sunday at 10:15 AM: Warmth is a color that was in just about every BE "get started" kit. It was something that the company thought would be wildly popular. Unfortunately, it was very orange-ish. Not good at all. Warm Radiance is the golden-tan that I think they intended Warmth to be. It isn't a color that I'll personally reach for a lot, but if you're looking for a slight tan glow, Warm Radiance is great. (Not easy to find, but it's a great glow…

BareMinerals’ Birthday Bag kit

BareMinerals’ Birthday Bag kit

Sunday at 7:15 AM: All of these items were part of the BE regular line in 2007, so I’m guessing that this kit just put these colors together for the first time. (Or maybe not. But looking back through the kit-list, I’m seeing Cupcake and Flowers both in pre-2005 kits, so…) This was a fairly decent value in terms of the color items alone. Everything in the kit was pink, or a shade thereof. So maybe not much in the way of dramatic or…

Milani’s Shadow Eyez pencil in Lovely Frost

Saturday at 10:14 AM: A metallic silver that has really good coverage!! (Not all of them do. The wider pencils usually have better payoff than the thinner line-pencils, but…it’s not a guarantee.)

Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Stick in Ladyfish

Saturday at 7:15 AM: Mostly dark purple with faint, scattered red-sparkle highlights…that don’t show up too much when applied. The color is nearly blackened. This makes a good alternative-to-black eyeliner for folks who don’t care for jeweltone or bright…

Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss lipstick in Wonderchilde

Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss lipstick in Wonderchilde

Friday at 7:15 AM: One of the metallic/shimmer shades, so it’s a bit easier to apply. It does feel gritty-ish, like the shimmer-shades do; but it actually applies without quite so many reswipes. I wish it went on a…
