bareMinerals Women of BE 20 Piece Eye Color Collection

Everyone gather round.

I want a pat on the back.

I said no to the new bareMinerals Women of BE 20 Piece Eye Color Collection. Phew! I’m breaking into a cold sweat here just thinking about the gory details!


Dude that was hard. I had it in my cart, I submitted the order, and proceeded to go back and cancel it. Damn it’s hard work doing battle with beauty sometimes.

It’s a killer set but I realized I have too many BE shadows I’m not using nearly enough.

However, if you’re a hardcore fan or you’re simply looking to expand your mineral eyeshadow collection this is a sweet little package.

The set includes 20 Bare Escentuals Eye Shadows in various finishes and colors all named after women that inspired the company. Customers, girlfriends, family members, etc….each shadow is named after a very special someone.

The set includes 20 shades in 0.01 oz sizes in the following shades:

  • Beautiful Autumn, a golden pumpkin
  • Beautiful Lisa, a rose pink
  • Beautiful Melodie, a red
  • Beautiful Susan, a sterling
  • Gigi, an opal blue
  • Joeli, a lavender
  • Girlfriend Margo, a rose
  • Girlfriend Michelle, a pink mist
  • Girlfriend Tina, a green
  • Girlfriend Kathleen, an olive mist
  • Exotic Laura, a rosy clay
  • Exotic Sandra, a sage
  • Exotic Tara, a teal
  • Exotic Victoria, a gold tiara shade
  • Starlet Casey, a gold
  • Starlet Karen, a deep cream
  • Starlet Catherine, an olive
  • Starlet Leigh Anne, an eggplant
  • Radiant Rebecca, an apricot
  • Treasured Terri, an emerald

The set is $79 and available in three payments of $26.

It comes housed in a keepsake box. I think it’ll make a brilliant gift or if you’re as greedy as I am, you may want it for yourself.

So far I’m holding strong, I might need moral support girls.

Available at QVC.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    great kit but I’ve been with BE long enough that I have MOST lol too bad because there are a couple that I’m missing but not worth buying the whole thing 🙁

  • Biba

    Oh, I’d love to have this set. I don’t care that I have tons of mineral e/s, I just want more and more.

    Sorry, no moral support here… 😉

  • Ellie

    Do BE shadows have good color payoff?? I’ve always looked at them in the little pots, but never swatched them… I’ve always assumed they were pretty much just shimmer, but I’m probably wrong and now I want to try them. lol

  • KristyQ

    I can’t believe you resisted 🙂 Good for you!! I won’t be indulging either (I just went through my e/s palette collection last week and have been feeling 1/2 PURE GLEE and 1/2 PURE OMG I HAVE TOO MUCH CRAP!)

  • Ru

    OMG I want this soo bad. I’m a sucker for their collections. I’ve bought 3 and my sister yells at me for having too much makeup (call it jealousy. When I shared a bit with her she was filled with glee. Go figure- must be nice not to pay for it…). I can’t justify this purchase, but secretly hope it goes down to a reasonable price after the hype.

    • the Muse

      LOL ru ;-D I told myself absolutely not but I keep looking at it with longing!

  • Elizabeth

    I go through that same dilemma… but I couldn’t help it with this collection! I bought it IMEDIATELY after seeing it! Can’t wait!

  • Katy

    Oh come on you know you want it!! 🙂 I just ordered mine…I’ll send you swatches! Muuhahaha! 😉

  • allison1998

    I am in the same boat Muse!!! I have put this in my cart so many times and then taken it out….have even gone as far as getting to the order page, but I just cant click on the bottom to complete the order!

    What is wrong with us?????

    I have a few of these colors, but I want them all….one thing that is keeping me from ordering it that they are minis…me no likey da minis!

    • the Muse

      dude I’ve hit submit and proceeded to cancel the order soon after LOL! ;-D totally can relate allison ;-D I don’t either 🙁 I miss the full size BE pots. They used to give full size with everything the smaller sizes are a pain to work with ;(
