You may recall that the Muse’s wish list was updated with the Bare Escentuals Classic Rock Collection!
Now she happened to wander onto Nordstrom’s site a few weeks back and came across the Pure Platinum collection! Oh my! Diamonds, Diamonds, and more Diamonds!
I was having quite a difficult time deciding between the two sets as they looked identical to each other but I’m happy to report (Thanks to the Muse’s friend and reader, Betsy) the two sets are very different!
Betsy’s been so kind as to share images from both her collections and we can see the difference between the two!
These images are taken by Betsy’s and you can see the gossamer powder that comes with these are vastly different! On the left hand side the Classic Rock gossamer powder comes in a white shimmering powder and on the right hand side you can see the Precious Platinum gossamer powder is a silver shimmering powder! Above the powders you can see the beautifully luminous lashes overcoat and mascara. This is a dual ended mascara that has black mascara on one side and the other side has the overcoat. You can see in the photos that the overcoat is completely different as well! One is white and one is silver!
Below are images of the shadows, glimmers, and blushes included in the kit! As you can see these are completely different colors as well!
The good news is that the sets are utterly different and gorgeous! I had originally wanted the Classic Rock Collection and when I seen the Pure Platinum that was on my list but I was somewhat confused if it was the same collection! I’m now utterly adding the Pure Platinum Collection to my wish list!
Thanks so much to Betsy for clearing this up, sharing her photos, and making the Muse’s wallet scream in pain!
If you’ll looking for a perfect Holiday set to make you glamorous and gorgeous these two would be it! Each Kit is $59 and has an array of delicious goodies to keep you happy all season long! Betsy also informs the Muse that the brushes have pretty little rhinestones/diamonds embedded in the handles!
