BareMinerals’ Queen for a Day kit

These four colors are interesting…but I’m not entirely sure that I’d personally wear these four shades together. Any two works. Three? Doable. All four? I think this starts to fall into the realm of “too much of a good thing.” The color depth is similar, they all have the same finish, and while Phyllis is lighter than the others, I don’t know that she’s light enough to be a good useful highlighter, and Tiffany and Marie are darker colors, but only just barely pigmented enough for use as softer liner shades. Still, it was a good way to get all four of these very versatile shades - and a lipstick - together for less than they’d cost if purchased separately.
