BareMinerals’ Destination: Key West kit

BareMinerals’ Destination: Key West kit

Posted on Tuesday, at

I bought two of these kits when they were first released on QVC. I wish I had bought three - the fill levels were pathetic, and the kits sold out fast. Once more that summer a small amount were available again. Then the next year - exactly a year, during the 2009 BE Friends and Family summer sale - this kit was briefly available for order from the BE webstore. There was such strong demand, though, and such a small supply,...

BareMinerals’ Get Started Eyes kit

BareMinerals’ Get Started Eyes kit

Yes, this kit is all browns/oranges. However, it’s got some colors that aren’t easily available elsewhere (Soft Focus Explore and Fashionista aren’t available as singles) and the brushes are good. There’s also a tip card to help newbies with application suggestions…though BE’s tip cards tend to follow one mold, this one has a tiny bit more information what colors to put where, and why. By late 2011, this kit had disappeared from channel partners,...

I acquired the color pieces of this kit separately, as I’m not a fan of dual-ended face brushes. I love Pure Radiance, as it adds sparkle without any colorchange; but I’m less enamored of the blush. It’s the tiniest bit warm for use as a blush with my complexion, though I have successfully used it as an eyeshadow.

I’ve already mentioned my LOVE for Hot Spot; so getting this kit wasn’t completely outside the realms of possibility - especially once Hot Spot was only available in this kit. The brush is a bit ‘meh’, largely because it’s so very very odd. I haven’t quite figured out how to use it. (Maybe one day I’ll drag my brushes down to some makeup artist and have them teach me.) I wavered on getting this kit;...

BareMinerals’ Most Wanted Volume III kit

BareMinerals’ Most Wanted Volume III kit

Posted on Monday, at

Third in the “most wanted” series of kits…and the first such release in three years. QVC describing these four as the ‘most popular BareMinerals colors’ is a bit of hyperbole. They are pretty colors, soft enough for even the most cautious makeup wearer and in softened pink and purple colors that can be foiled for the more dramatic artistes. They’re also near impossible to find singly. All four colors were originally released back in 2005, and were named for...

BareMinerals’ Sun Proof Eyes Kit

The colors on this kit were somewhat neutral-ish; but the big attraction was the natural SPF in each color (which gripes me…but I digress.) The colors were pretty, and were not available individually until summer 2009.

The SheSpace’s Hope Quest II: Embrace Your Natural Beauty kit

Following on the heels of the first Hope Quest quad, Heather releases this second set of colors. The first focussed on reminding people that yes, they matter. The messages with this set remind people of their own inner beauty and strength.

Just got back from visiting my parents, and while there I created a pretty look…quite by accident. I had taken along Serenity, Miss Defiant, and Take A You Day (along with a few other colors). I applied Benefit's Birthday Suit lash to crease, patted Serenity over that, and then applied a little bit of Miss Defiant in the outer crease only (and blended outward). Then I put Take a You Day along the upper lash line…et voila. A...
