Today’s Special Value

Pure Luxury!

As I previously mentioned, the Bare Escentuals Today’s Special Value for November 18th is a gorgeous kit which contains a new exclusive Ready Duo.  I received mine over the weekend, and was able to wear it yesterday.

This Bare Luxury kit contains a TON of stuff for the price, and the biggest challenge is deciding what to wear!  The Ready Duo in The Phenomenon is a great pair, with Golden Iris being a deep amber with a touch of shimmer, and the Azure Irish being a rich lavender.  These were both created specifically to show off my baby blues, and the amber makes them sparkle.  As with all of the Ready shadows, they are creamy and densely pigmented.  While I wore a primer, I have tried them without primers and they last over 8 hours with minimal movement.

The Round the Clock Waterproof Eyeliners are a new launch for Bare Escentauls, and one that I in particular and very excited for.  I have been unable to wear their B&B pencil liners int he past because they turn me in to a racoon.  These glide on easily and stay put for the most part.  I am a bit disappointed that I did have some travelling by the end of the day, but they are excellent formulations that you can sharpen as you use the pencil up.  The 10pm is a deep mocha shade, and the Noon is a rich Navy.

The Marvelous Moxie glosses are something of a cross between Buxoms and 100% Natual lipglosses.  While I am not a fan of the 100% Natural, I am a Buxom addict and these are a great addition.  There is a slightly less intense tingle in these plumpers, and a nice vanilla scent.  The Daredevil is perfect for fall, in a rich berry color.  The Wild One is a light peach perfect for day time.

Also included in this kit is the etheral Rose Gold Radiance.  It’s lighter than a blush, and darker than most radiances, so it makes a very pretty heavenly brush.

Rounding out the kit, the holiday brushes with gold handles are softer than most BE brushes in my opinion, and make a nice addition to your sparkle hoard.  They are made to go with the other holiday brush kits seamlessly.

I absolutely love this kit, and can imagine a ton of looks with it.  The ready shadows are bold, but the Golden Iris color can be a very simple day look, or you can punch it up a bit.  This will probably be one of my go to colors for a while.

The preview ordering is still up, so don’t miss out on this great kit!  For $68, you get a duo, 2 liners, 2 glosses, and 2 brushes.  Plus, new collections seasonally.  The kit will be presented on air on November 18th, and I look forward to watching how Leslie & Jessica use the kit, since it always provides me with inspiration.

Happy shopping!

It’s a Philosophy silly!

I’ve always had fairly decent skin.  I really didn’t take care of it much, and never really had too many problems.  Until recently that is.  As I age, and as I’ve gone off the hormonal roller coast that is The Pill (shriek!  Horror!) I’ve had some nasty side effects like patchy, dry, scaly skin along with an oil slick for a nose.

In steps philosophy, the skin care line that was developed for dermatologists.  My first product was Hope in a Jar last year, which i love, and I recently purchased the Miracle Worker set from Beauty.com after watching a presentation on QVC.  WOWZAH!  After using this set a few times a week for a month, I really see a difference in my skin.  The dry flaky patches are gone, and the overall texture has improved.  So much so, that I recently bought the next step:  the microdelivery peel pads.  These are like mini peels in a pad that refresh and renew your skin.  I’ve only used them once, so stay tuned on that front…

Why am I telling you this?  Well because philosophy is having a Today’s Special Value on QVC this month.  The set includes said Miracle Worker retanoid pads, Miracle Worker Eye Cream, Miracle Worker Eye Cream, and Miracle Worker Day Cream.  All of this for $96.18.  Since I paid $110 for a set that only had the pads on philosophy.com (which comes with a solution you pour over them), the Miracle Worker Concentrate and the regular Miracle Worker moisturizer (not the spf 55 one this kit has) you are getting the eye cream for free and a bit of a boosted moisturizer.  This is a GREAT deal!  I am going to take advantage of it, even though I still have plenty of my kit left because ti’s a great value.  It’s also available on Sleazy Easy Pay which allows to spread the cost over a few months.  If you’re really in love, you can get it on Auto Delivery, so you only pay shipping on the first order (although I’m not sure about this because my other A-D do charge shipping…ah well).

There will be new numbers on the day of the presentation
