The Perfect Gift

It’s Perfect!

September marks the changing of the seasons, the start of fall, and, sadly, the last Auto Delivery shipment of Bare Escentauls’ The Perfect Gift.  It was a little bitter sweet to see the last kit arrived, but in true BE form, it was beautiful!

Packaged in the trademark The Perfect Gift style, a cute hatbox showed up with:

  • Silver Lining eyeshadow, a medium grey silver shimmer
  • The Bright Side eyeshadow, a pale yellow linen matte
  • Rosy Outlook blush, a bright pink rose, which looks like a baby’s blush
  • Midnight Moon eyeliner, a deep dark blue
  • Fearless Pretty Amazing Lipcolor, a pinkish natural nude
  • Tinted Hydrating Mineral Veil
  • Full Defintion Flawless Mascara
When I first saw other gals wearing this kit, I knew I’d love it.  I haven’t broken in to my PG2 or 3, because the colors turned me off a bit, but now I know I need to.
For this look I started with Missha Cho Bo Yang BB Cream in #2 Calm Beige, followed by BE Fairly Medium in original.  I skipped primer, in order to test the wearability of the BB cream.  Fortunately, it was a great primer, foundation, moisturizer and cover in one!  See my full revie here.  The result was a flawless face to start with!
On my eyes, I used Bright Side from lash to crease dry, and then foiled  on the lid.  Silver lining was added on the outer third up in to the crease.  Finally, to add a bit of definition, I used Queen Tiffany Matte in the crease and lined with Buxom Lashliner in Suede, with Benefit They’re Real Mascara.
On my lips, Fearless Pretty Amazing was followed by Holly Buxom.  Love it!
This is my favorite Perfect Gift Shipment.  I really liked the first one, however I think the colors of this kit suit me more.  It can me worn as a smokey eye, or you can make it a simple day time look.
All in all, I’m glad I got in on this AD and I can’t wait to see the next one that is coming up sooN!
Happy Glossing!

Perfect in green

Today, I am wearing the third installment of the Holiday 2011 Auto Delivery Collection from Bare Escentuals, The Perfect Gift.  In this shipment, you will get, in that cute little hatbox:

  • Tinted Hydrating Mineral Veil
  • Appreciate Blush
  • Enjoy Eyecolor, a golden yellow chiffon
  • Savor Eyecolor, a deep sage shimmer
  • Big & Bright eyeliner in Bronze
  • Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara in black
  • Pretty Amazing Lipcolor in Courage, a warm strawberry and one of my favorite PAs.

I don’t use the B&B liners, so that was tossed in my swap bin right away.

On my face:

  • Too Faced Primed & Poreless
  • BE Original in Light
  • Summer Bisque as concealer
  • Faux Tan to contour
  • tarte natural eye primer
  • blush and eye colors from the kit
  • Buxom Suede Lashliner
  • tarte Amazonian Clay liner in Shimmering Sage (I think!)
  • Buxom Amplified Mascara
  • Pretty Amazing lin Courage
  • Brandi Buxom

With my golden fair skin and blue eyes, I wasn’t sure that the green tones would for me.  Happily, I love the gold and the green is a nice accent color.

I foiled the Enjoy all over the lid, and buffed it out with Enjoy dry to just above the crease.  Using a small brush, I applied Savor in the crease.  For liner, I started with Buxom Suede lashliner, followed by the sage tarte liner, finishing off with the Amplifed mascara.  I love the way it brings out my eyes!
