Bare Escentuals Color Shift Lilac/Gray Tips and Pics

I wore the new Lilac/Gray Color Shift eyecolor from Bare Escentuals both yesterday and today.  Yesterday, being Monday morning, I was way too tired and applied as I normally would and the eyecolor was mostly gray.  Today, I was more alert and took my time and it came out like I hoped.

Tips:

Your best bet is to dip the brush into the eye color and then dab it in the lid.  Only dab or pat if you want to keep the original color.  I was able to pat the color on my lids.  It took a couple dabs into the color and then pats on the lid to get the coverage I wanted.

To get the shift color, just apply with more pressure, buff or use the smudging end of the brush.  I was able to apply the gray shade in my crease with the tapered shadow end of the brush just by using more pressure.  Then I went back with the smudging end of the brush to fully bring out the shift color.

I am wearing:
  • BE Prime Time for face
  • BE foundation in Fairly Light
  • BE Bisque as concealer
  • BE Faux Tan Matte
  • BE Blush in TTYL
  • BE Mineral Veil
  • BE Prime Time for eyes
  • BE Tiara from lash to brow
  • BE Colorshift Lilac/Gray on lids left as Lilac
  • BE Colorshift Lilac/Gray smudged Gray in crease & v
  • BE Brocade liner wetlined
  • BE Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara in Black
  • BE Buxom Lip Gloss in Leslie Couture

Bare Escentuals Color Shift Colors

I cannot believe my order from QVC is here already.  I just chose USPS shipping and they got here in 2 days! The only thing I ordered during the BE shows on QVC this week were the 2 Color Shift colors, Lilac/Gray and Bronze/Green.  They sold out on the air so I don't have any ordering info to share with you.  They said on the air that they were a 1 time thing so I am not sure if we will see them again or not. I wanted to take some pics and swatches to share with you.

Bare Escentuals Good Morning Gorgeous

I ordered The Bare Escentuals Good Morning Gorgeous collection from QVC as it was listed in the Insider for advanced purchase. This collection is adorable, 7 mini jars of eye colors, each named for a day of the week.  

It looks like advanced ordering amounts may have sold out so you might need to wait until this is presented on the air on QVC in May.

Here are tons of pics:
