BareMinerals’ The Glamorous Life kit

The holiday kits from 2011 just did not pique my interest. I picked up many of the color-pieces much much later. The one eyeshadow isn’t my favorite, but Plush is attractive, as is the blush. The lip gloss (a gloss, dang, not full-color) is an attractive, fairly unique shade for a BE lippie, as well. I am glad that I didn’t get the kit, simply because the brushes, the mascara, and the mineral veil would not have been highly welcome additions. The prices of individual pieces of BE have been steadily driven upward on Ebay, but not quite to the point where I’m only breaking even by buying the color parts rather than the whole kit.
