It's the most wonderful time...of the year. Beauty mavens, it's that time of the year! The time when all of the cutest little holiday products and gift sets arrive, and you just can't resist. Or at least, I can't! Bare Escentuals is my #1 make-up line, and I'd say even though I'm always testing out new lines and products, it's takes up more than half of my bathroom counter.
I've always been a big fan of the bareMinerals (refillable!) Mineral Veil Buffing Brush ($35) - hey, it's easy! And this one is soooo pretty for the holidays in all it's cherry-red, gleaming glory. It comes already filled with Mineral Veil (which is a blessing itself) and it's so handy dandy for taking in your purse and on the go (thank you for sending me one of these, Bare Escentuals!). But, you can always refill this sucker once you run out with foundation, blush, etc. The red outer shell though is for a limited-time only.
Bare Escentuals has some of the best sets around - they always include the perfect shadow, lip gloss, brushes and more so you can really get the full effect. (While using their famous mineral foundation is great, you haven't seen amazing yet until you try the whole look!) Just recently I've been using the bareMinerals Face Fashion: Classic Glam kit ($34) they sent me, and I'm hooked. I wasn't sure about it because I'm not really a "berry" person. But, it's really been getting me in the mood for the holidays, and I'm sad to say it's another limited-edition. It's such a deal because you get a nice satiny "vanilla cream" eyecolor to sweep across your eyes as the base and another velvety gray eyecolor for contrast. Plus, a "metallic bronzed coal" eye liner to complete (get your brush barely damp under the faucet and it will give you the perfect amount of coverage). I really love the "rose berry" blush and pomegranate lip gloss - it adds instant life to my dull winter complexion!
P.S. It could be your lucky day! Purchase The Surprise Collection ($54 - packed with TONS of goodies) from now until Christmas Day and your set could have the lucky ticket! What's that? One of three lifetime supplies of bareMinerals SPF15 Foundation or one of 36 other deluxe beauty giveaways!
