Bare Escentuals bareMinerals The Surprise Set

Bare Escentuals bareMinerals The Surprise Set 1

I Tivo’ed all the latest Bare Escentual programs on QVC about a week ago?  I believe it was a week ago.  Anyway, I expected that these would have some serious festive Holiday stuff going on as everyone seems to be decking the halls way early this year.

But no dice.

The show had  few odd pieces that might be considered holiday-like but for the most part it was standard bits and bobs.  Now Nordie’s has a new Bare Escentuals bareMinerals The Surprise Set which definitely can fall right into the Holiday theme of things but….snore….I’mma no likey it.   If this is what BE has in store for this season in regards to gift sets I may be saving a whole heck of alot of money

I’ll bide my time though and wait.

Bare Escentuals bareMinerals The Surprise Set is $54 and housed in a gorgeous faux book style packaging. It looks very elegant but the colors included are a bit blah for me.

You’ll get:

  • Bare Minerals Intrigue Blush
  • Bare Minerals Spellbound Eye Color
  • Bare Minerals Surreal Eye Color
  • Bare Minerals Suspense Liner Shadow
  • Bare Minerals Secret Radiance Natural Lip Gloss in Brilliance (Angelfood Cake Flavored)
  • Bare Minerals Tapered Crease Defining Brush, Line Diffuser Brush, and Cheek Brush

For me this one is a miss but many BE fans will probably adore it.

What do you think?

Loves it?

Leaves it?

What are some of your fav sets from BE?

Tell the Muse!

Available now at Nordstrom.

Want It: Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette True Love

Morning loves, Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? Hope you had a great one.

This morning my roaming eye caught the attention of the new Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette True Love. Oh my god hello gorgeous wanna be BFF? It looks like another winning palette from Kat Von D and I do believe I need it in my life.

Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette True Love

Shades included are:

  • Peanut
  • Benji
  • Rebekah
  • Lucifier
  • Cholita
  • Shiba
  • Babe
  • Missy

It’s a little bit of an unusual color selection as the shades go from brown and neutral to bolder. It’s an interesting one as most of Kat’s palettes follow some sort of color graduation where as this just seems to be split into two separate color selections.

It’s $34 but “temporarily out of stock” at Sephora. I find this only means it’s not yet in stock. Since the word is out on the street that Sephora’s Friend and Family Event is taking place mighty soon I’m thinking that this here palette will hold a prominent position in my online cart.

What do yo think?

Has potential haulability for you?

Not so much?
