Putting on the Glitz

It’s Glitzy!

Merry Christmas!  Well ok, it’s a tad early for that, but since all of the holiday kits are out in stores, urging you to get dressed up and put on a glam face, I thought I’d join the club.

I have been a holiday beauty kit shopping fiend lately!  At the Sephora  Friends & Family sale last month, I picked up the Bare Escentuals Putting on the Glitz Kit, and I’m happy I did.  This is a lovely kit, very subtle but sparkly and festive.

This kit is a Sephora exclusive, and might remind you a bit of last year’s Shimmer and Shine.  It contains 10 pieces, for $54.  That right there is a deal, but I nabbed it at 20% off, making it less than $5 per piece.

The items include (swatched at right, top to bottom)

  • Prime Time Primer Shadow in Toasted Almond (iced coffee).  This primer is just a teesy tiny bit away from the Champagne Toast, another personal favorite of mine.  It is just a tad darker and is a fantastic all over eye color, as well as a primer.
  • Glamtastic eyeshadow (warm champagne luster)  This is a glowing champagne tint, but isn’t too sparkly
  • Glitz eyeshadow (smoky plum sparkle) a deep plum purple brown
  • Gorgeous blush (petunia pink) – a big POP of pink!
  • Luxe Radiance AOFC (apricot pink) – this is a bit too pink to be an AOFC for me but makes an excellent blush. If you mix this with Gorgeous you get a baby pink that makes you glow.

You also get a mascara, a Cheek & eye brush and a clutch.  Included are an eyeliner and pretty amazing as well.

 

The jury is still out on the Round the Clock Eyeliners for me - they are better than the B&B liners, which just slide off my face in a hot mess, but they aren’t as holy grail to me as Tarte  or Urban Decay.

I like the new Pretty Amazing lipgloss, which is a full color gloss as well; this is a pale shimmering pink.

 

All of this is wrapped up in a sparkly pink bag for you to take with you; this matches the gold theme of all the holiday kits this year, and is a great way to mix and match the 8.0 Readys or the TSV Ready Duo
