Gettin’ buzzed!

Are you feeling it?  Bzz bzz.  That’s the buzz of a released kit from Bare Escentuals, called Buzzworthy. This kit got a ton of great press last year when it was first released, and as it was recently re-released during the May QVC shows, I decided to pick it up.

Inside, you’ll find:

  • A unique, double-ended lipstick and lipgloss duo, with Sticky Buns stick, and Muffin Top gloss (only available in this kit)
  • Well-Rested for Eyes (eyeshadow size).  Now I have at least 3 other containers of Well Rested but this little gem is a genius.  It’s a creamy yellow color, and while it started it’s life as an eyeshadow, it’s an amazing multi tasker that fights both redness and dark circles.  I have an extra large container and use it every day!  Ever had a red nose from allergies or a cold?  Well Rested is your cover.
  • Glee Radiance all over face color.  I have a large jar of Glee AOFC from a million years ago, but this is slightly different.  The Radiance is a dewy soft look, while my old Glee is more of a pop of color.  Love this!
  • High-Shine Charisma eyeshadow (only available in this kit), a pink champagne shade.  Sparkle baby, sparkle!  This is the previous packaging for the high shine formula, and honestly, I prefer it.  Those spring loaded tubes are TERRIBLE.  I will be reviewing the colors I have shortly.  The formula is not as chunky as the Extreme Glimmers, and not as creamy as the regular shadow.  It’s somewhere in between, with noticeable glitter.
  • Popular eyeshadow, a plum shimmer shade.  I’ve heard a lot about this shade, which is a reddish plum.  Some people find it a bit hard to wear, but I think if you do it right, it’s gorgeous!

All of this is $36 and is a QVC exclusive.  Considering that each eyeshadow is normally $13, and the high shines are now $16, you are getting a great value – essentially, the Glee and Lipstick are free.

Today, I started with Benefit Primed and Poreless primer, followed by Bare Escentuals Matte Foundation in Golden Fair.  I spot concealed with It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye, followed by Well Rested to hide some redness.

For my eyes, I used the flathead shadow brush to pat high Shine Charisma from lid to crease, buffing it off the brownbone a bit.  Next, I added Popular in the outer 1/3 of the eye.  For definition, I added Restore to the crease (this is from the Naturally Luminous collection), popped the inner corner with Eye Bright, and lined with Urban Decay Bourbon 24/7 liner and some mascara.

I added a pop to my cheeks with original Glee, followed by a sweep of the Glee Radiance, and used the lipgloss.

I really enjoy the colors in this kit, and it can be strong for evenigns, or light for summer days.

Don’t miss out, order yours today at QVC!

    Looks like you have freckles I do to and the med foundation makes it look like I am trying to cover them up and I look dead. The test thing says I should be using golden also I need to get some bad and hope that it just compliments my freckles.

    Thanks Missy! That’s one of the reasons I love BE foundation – it looks so natural. And oh BOY do i have freckles lol! I usually wear MED in summer, but since they created Golden Fair, that works a bit better. Sometimes I wear light.

    I would totally go to a boutique to get color matched – it’s best in daylight, since it shows your true colors :-)
