BareMinerals’ buxom Emily (I)

A pretty enough gold-shimmer rose-tan, but it's a bit softer than I'd prefer. I don't know that I'll wear this one too much…or if I do, it'll be in some surprise combination. This shade is extremely soft. The gold shimmer and the faint rose undertones are all that kept me from re-homing this particular shade when I first swatched it. If you're fond of nude lip looks, or can wear soft tan lip colors well, you'd probably enjoy Emily. This can be found occasionally on Ebay - the kit is long since out of stock at BE boutiques or even Sephora.
