bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow.

My love for the bareMinerals READY products continues. Despite having a little reaction to the bareMinerals READY Foundation, I am still in love with it, and I couldn't wait to try more from the READY line up. So next on my list to try were the bareMinerals READY Eyeshadows.

bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow is super pigmented, super smooth with an almost creamy feels, and is super long-wearing. The powder texture feels so soft and silky and feels like a cream as it is applied. They blend with ease and look gorgeous all day. The formula is infused with bareMinerals' proprietary SeaNutritive Mineral™ Complex and some powerful antioxidants, cold-pressed borage oil, along with caffeine and cucumber; so anti-aging benefits are built right in. I've always had this thinking that if I am going to wear makeup, I rather wear makeup that is good for me, which this eyeshadow is.

The READY Eyeshadows comes in Quads and Duos, aptly named bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 4.0 and bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0.

The Afterparty is a quad with Cheers, Mingle, Rowdy and Lights Down, which are moonstone, gleaming pewter, heathered plum and shimmering ink shades. The dark smoky eye is simple with this palette.

The Vision is a duo with Illusion and Mirage which is a sea mist and deep lagoon shade. The combination is unexpectedly gorgeous.

The Top Shelf is a duo with Mixologist and Cognac, a champagne sheen and gilded bronze. This combination is perfect for an everyday bronzed look.

Bare Escentuals BUXOM Full-Bodied Lip Gloss.

Bare Escentuals added a new lip gloss to it's BUXOM line up earlier this fall. If you've ever tried a BUXOM gloss, you already love it for it's plumping effect, pure color, smooth and glossy shine. Now there is a new gloss, the BUXOM Full-Bodied Lip Gloss, that you will like just the same, or maybe even a bit more.

Bare Escentuals BUXOM Full-Bodied Lip Gloss

This new BUXOM Full-Bodied Lip Gloss looks like the little sister to the Big & Healthy Lip Polish on the outside, but it looks like a superstar on the lips. The tube contains the same amount of gloss, it's just a shorter and wider tube. Inside is a lip gloss that is fully pigmented and fortified with not just Vitamin E and Jojoba Oil (staples in a better gloss), but this gloss contains time-released hyaluronic spheres. What does that mean? Well, that means that the subtle plumping effect continues as you wear the gloss.

The lip gloss feels really nice on my lips, not like a standard gloss. It feels richer and creamier, with no stickiness at all. The pigment is pretty full and lasting. I get a nice three or four hours of glossy color when wearing. For a gloss, that's a long time. It has a very subtle caramel-vanilla-ish flavor. I can't pin it down, exactly, but it is not overpowering and fades soon after applying.
