bareMinerals Radiance Rocks Review and Swatches

Some makeup is so terribly pretty.  Gorgeous packaging, delicious colors……but just because it’s pretty doesn’t always mean it’s great.

And so goes the case with the brand new bareMinerals Radiance Rocks Set that I recently purchased from Sephora.

Oh woe is me why can’t I love it?

Take the jump for the review and the cries of nay!

bareMinerals Radiance Rocks

Innovative beauty? Possibly. bareMinerals Radiance Rocks are made up of three minerals in their most natural state.

bareMinerals+Radiance+Rocks

Hmmm….

Interesting but what’s it for?

Jump!

This set is made up of three mineral rocks in various shades for a sheer wash of refreshing, cooling color on eyes, cheeks, or body.

Possibly one of the most interesting cosmetic assembles the Muse has seen to date these do so appear interesting. They come packaged with a Kabuki Brush for application and three shades which are bronze, champagne, and warm rose. Honestly, they look gorgeous but the question is will they be messy or way too pigmented to work with?

Remains to me scene but this Muse did so plop ‘em in her cart at Sephora and is eagerly awaiting their arrival on her doorstep…maybe they’ll be as special as they look!

What do you think?

Available for Sephora Beauty Insiders for $35.

P.S. Bare Minerals has done “rock”-like cosmetics before with a bronzer rock this past Summer.

bareMinerals+Tutorials+Eyelining+Kit

The Muse generally enjoys bareMinerals Tutorial Kits so she’s all excited about the latest offering from BE which is the new Eyelining Kit!

Jump ahead to hear more about this cool kit for making lining eyes easy and simple!

First I fell in love with the Smoky Eye Kit and than the Rocker Kit captured my fancy and now I must have the bareMinerals Tutorials Eyelining Kit.

This kit includes everything you need to learn how to line like a pro, indeed I need to learn these things. An easy script on a tip card allows you to create a perfect lined eye look in a few simple steps.

bareMinerals Eyelining Tutorial Kit includes bareMinerals sable liner shadow (matte) and minx liner shadow (shimmer). The set also includes a magnetic multi-liner brush with brush pouch. An interchangeable handle has a magnetic bottom for inserting either a flat line brush or a regular thin tip liner brush into it. One brush allows for multiply liner looks!

The kit is available now for $38 from Bare Escentuals.

Bare Escentuals Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick

Bare+Escentuals+Buxom+Big+%26+Healthy+Lip+Stick

The Muse always feels the need to multitask. That’s why having a three-in-one pencil that lines, fills, and defines my lips seems like a great little idea!

Check it after the jump!

Available in six shades Bare Escentuals Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick ($18) is the brand new edition to the “buxom” line.

1+Bare+Escentuals+Buxom+Big+%26+Healthy+Lip+Stick

These new pencils define, line, and fill with creamy color and plumps them up as well. I’m not much for lining my lips in all honesty but I have a fan of the Buxom Lip Polishes (not to be mistake with the lipgloss which has an entirely different applicator and the Muse no likey) which them all the more appealing to try out.

Anyone interested?
