My top choice for all natural lipstick and it is a tie!

My top choice for all natural lipstick is a tie! 
imsge from Bare Escentuals website


Bare Escentuals 100% Natural Lipcolor

It was such funny and fabulous timing when this came out. I had decided to go all natural with all of my cosmetics and get rid of all my non-natural lipsticks and glosses.  As soon as I decided to part with the old formula items, Bare Escentuals came out with the all natural ones.  I have to say, it made me laugh.  Majority of these are great, once in a while you might get one that is a bit drying.  They have a great range of colors and look great on.

My current fave shades: Bread Pudding, Parfait, Bellini, French Pastry and Spiced Raisin

-And-

Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers

These are awesome and affordable.  The only problem is I wish they had more color variety but they are slowly coming out with more shades here and there.  They are cooling, feel great on and look fabulous. It is like a great lip balm and lipstick in one.  The best part is they are under $5!!!

My current fave shades:  Cocoa, Caramel & Peony

My BE Nirvana #2 Update

I am still trying to make a point of wearing each BE eye color once without any repeats aside from an occasional new color I want to try again before putting it in my storage area.  I think I've been making some decent progress.  I haven't stopped the shopping like I did with my original BE Nirvana but I plan to cut way back on the shopping during winter.  I tend to splurge around the holidays when all the fun new collections come out, then again around my birthday in May when BE has new fun spring stuff and their anniversary show on QVC.

Here are the details of my update.

Total Eye Colors owned (I count samples but only count each shade once so if I have a duplicate it doesn't count.  I only count jars, not the new tubes of high shine colors or B&B liners.): 456

Total colors worn so far: 200!!!

What is a BE Nirvana?  A movement to wear all those eye colors you own.  I think it is important to honor your eye colors (or any possessions) by using them!

a Bare Escentuals look with Nude Chiffon, Gilded Quartz, Wild Woman Melissa and Vintage Ruby

Today, the BF and I went out to a special late lunch/early dinner for our anniversary.  The night before we went to see comedian Louis C.K. and that was tons of fun.  I haven't seen the BF laugh that hard in forever.  We followed that with dinner at IHOP which isn't bad but today we went out of town to a seafood and wine bar.  This is the look I put together for today. I used a diffuser on my hair instead of air drying so you actually get to see my full look with dry hair for a change.

I am wearing:
  • BE Brightening Prime Time for face
  • BE foundation in Golden Fair
  • BE Bisque as concealer
  • BE Faux Tan Matte
  • BE Blush in Pink Ribbon
  • BE Mineral Veil
  • BE Prime Time for Eyes
  • BE Nude Chiffon from lash to brow
  • BE Gilded Quartz on lids
  • BE Wild Woman Melissa in crease & V
  • BE Wild Ruby wetlined
  • BE brow color in dark blonde/med brown
  • BE Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara in Black
  • BE Sherbet 100% Natural lipstick
  • BE Kir Royale 100% Natural lipgloss

Halloween Make Up Au Natural Style!

I try to stick with my natural cosmetics, even at Halloween.  This may seem hard to do but it is a lot easier than it seems.  Tonight I attended a Zombie Prom Party at my fave cupcake place and used all natural mineral make up from Bare Escentuals with a Burts bees lip shimmer and some temporary tattoos.  No gunky make up and latex junk needed!  I am going to share this look and what products I used as well as some pics of previous Halloween looks.  Halloween is the time to play and go all out so try it out and enjoy!



What I am wearing above:
  • Temporary Zombie Tatoos from Hot Topic, applied before make up because clean skin is required
  • BE Prime Time for Face
  • BE original foundation in Fair
  • BE Soul applied to face, lightly with blending brush
  • BE Snowflake applied to face, lightly with blending brush
  • BE Bamboo applied to face, lightly with blending brush
  • BE Mineral Veil
  • BE Prime Time for eyes
  • BE Shantung around lashes and below eyes in circle area
  • BE Passion at inner corner of eyes
  • BE Catwoman on lids and inner circle under eyes
  • BE Brow Color in Auburn
  • Burts Bees Lip Shimmer in Toffee
  • BE Flawless Definition Mascara (waterproof) in black
  • BE Onyx wetlined
Some other Halloween looks:
Batgirl (she was a librarian!)
Pretty sure this is BE Rocker Eye
Hanging with Wonder Woman

Me as Daphne from Scooby Doo, I sewed the dress from scratch and hunted down all the perfect color accessories. BF was Shaggy. 


Bare Escentuals Eyes, not sure of the colors. I think I used Black Pearl and 1990s with a black liner

Strawberry Shortcake all grown up, I wore BE for this look too, much more simple.  I think I wore Present Eye color with Live Liner

Bare Escentuals Sweet Sparklers lip collection

I also received my order from the 2nd Bare Escentuals preview night.  I got Sweet Sparklers, the Mini Brush Collection and Faux Tan Matte since it was used in both my makeunders at the BE Events and somehow I didn't have it already. Nothing beats the fun holiday newness with a 20% coupon code. Here are some pics of the Sweet Sparklers which I think I will use often.

I decided to go all out today and blow my hair straight and do a fun bold look with these colors based on some of what Bravon taught me last weekend.  I still missed a couple things but I think my eyes look pretty hot considering that I am most likely staying home the rest of the day and might be carving pumpkins or learning to crochet.

I am wearing:
  • BE Prime Time face primer
  • BE foundation in Fairy Light
  • BE Bisque as concealer
  • BE Faux Tan
  • BE Flourish Blush
  • BE Gold Infused Mineral Veil
