Bare Escentuals November 2011 TSV - Bare Luxury

I was able to pre-order the new Bare Escentuals Today's Special Value collection that will be sold on QVC on November 18, 2011.  It took quite a long time to get here but it made it.  From now on, when ordering from QVC, I plan to select my preferred shipping method. 

This collection is going to be available as a single shipment or auto-delivery.  So far I was able to open items, read the info and do some swatches.  The collection is really pretty and so fun for the holidays.  I love the gold compact, brushes, and lids and the sparkly gold bag.  The bag is a good clutch size with magnetic closure. I totally see someone taking this out for New Years Eve. 

I am sad to say that I am not sure that this one is for me.  I need to give it a go and see how I do with it and do a little more investigation of ingredients. This is not a bad reflection on the kit, I know it will be great for a lot of people. I am torn because I love some of the kit but am not sure about all of the items.  Since I am trying to get myself back into sticking with more natural items, I am a little bummed that the new Marvelous Moxie Lipglosses contain synthetic ingredients.  They are free of bad stuff like parabens, sulfates, and phthaltes but they aren't as natural as I would like.  They also have a very strong scent, though it is a natural scent, it might be too strong for me. As soon as I opened them to swatch them I went woooo from the scent.  The Round the Clock liners also have synthetics.  I am on the fence about those too. 

On the happier side of things, I really like the Ready Eyeshadow colors and the Rose Gold Radiance from this collection.  The Ready shadows are really pretty to wear together, alone or with other colors from your collection.  The Rose Gold Radiance might be one of my favorite radiances yet.  It is such a great shade for most skintones.

I am going to wear the collection and do more of a report after some wear and plan to research the ingredients for the lip gloss and liners to see how I feel about them.  I think Buxom lovers or those who aren't as into natural products will love them.  They are really pretty.
