BareMinerals’ Revelry kit

BareMinerals’ Revelry kit

Posted on Tuesday, at

I’m going to assume that this kit was available through QVC. I’m unsure of the original release date - I don’t have a premium Delphi membership and wasn’t able to find the mention of the kit by manually trolling the forum archives at BEA. (If someone does know the original release date, can you let me know? Thanks.) As of 2009, all three colors are available as part of the regular BE lineup - but Giggle was...

It’s been lovely, but I have to scream now

It’s been lovely, but I have to scream now

Posted on Tuesday, at

I love it when a product or service is better, or cooler, or neater, than I expected. A nail polish that has a hint of duochrome. An eye color that has subtle hints of iridescence or sparkle that aren't readily apparent. A lip or cheek color that looks brighter and has more depth than the photos or text description lead me to believe.

BareMinerals’ Glamourista III kit

BareMinerals’ Glamourista III kit

Posted on Saturday, at

I acquired the eye and cheek colors on Ebay, and the lip color too. This entire kit was all purples and brights: from the eyecolors to the bright pink blush to the sheer mauve-purple buxom. Since this was available through autodelivery exclusively, people couldn’t buy it off of QVC. It was also considered one of their “Grand” kits, which meant that it a) included more items; and b) cost nearly $100. Previous installments in this series topped $120, and that’s...

BareMinerals’ Retro Lounge kit

BareMinerals’ Retro Lounge kit

Posted on Friday, at

This kit has been available from the BE webstore ever since I was buying BE. I held off on getting it because of the cost: $24 for a dark brown liner shadow and a hard-to-use brush? No thanks. I later acquired Retro from Ebay, and while I paid more than “retail”, I didn’t pay much more than retail for each jar…and certainly not $24, not even with shipping charges.

BareMinerals’ Holiday in the City kit

BareMinerals’ Holiday in the City kit

This kit was originally released through QVC, and (like many other kits for which demand was not overly high) was also eventually sold through the BE webstores. These three colors don’t go together that well, but they’re not quite as “off” a grouping as the Blendable Eye sets.

The SheSpace’s Astrology - Leo collection

The SheSpace’s Astrology - Leo collection

Posted on Friday, at

Heather continues her Astrology line with the Leo collection. The dominant colors associated with Leo are yellow and orange; and Heather certainly included those colors in this lineup. However, she figured out a way to include red, grey, and green in the palette as well. This collection, like the Gemini colors, was primarily duochromes.

I’m unsure of the original release date - I don’t have a premium Delphi membership and wasn’t able to find the mention of the kit by manually trolling the forum archives at BEA. (If someone does know the original release date, can you let me know? Thanks.) Two purple shades which are…well, I like purple, but these are fairly unremarkable purples. Serviceable, not ugly,...

BareMinerals’ Take Me By Surprise kit

BareMinerals’ Take Me By Surprise kit

Posted on Saturday, at

I bought this kit from QVC. It was one of the less wise purchases I’ve ever made: for $26 at my local boutique, I could have bought both eye colors. I could have even bought the eyecolors directly from BE, had I been willing to put up with their shipping delays. Instead, I paid an extra $8 for a lip gloss that I ended up getting rid of, and for a clutch that I knew I would not keep. (Proof that...

BareMinerals’ Bronze and Beyond kit

BareMinerals’ Bronze and Beyond kit

Posted on Friday, at

This is another of those kits that I don’t need to purchase because I already own all of the colors…and I don’t want the clutch. The colors are all neutral-warm colors, and can work when worn together. They work equally well when mixed with other shades, though.
