Bare Escentuals Shades of Decadence 15 piece Collection

One of the beauty treats I got myself this holiday season was the Bare Escentuals Shades of Decadence Collection from QVC.  This was a funny one.  My BF and I agreed to get gifts for ourselves instead of each other and then I wanted this so badly but I had already put it on my wishlist for my mom.  I went in a panic as I didn't expect to shop for myself and opted to buy this and then urgently email my mom to ask about it, since I could just cancel my order if I needed to.  She said she had not started her shopping so luckily, my order didn't need to be canceled and no surprises were ruined LOL

This collection is great as a gift or for yourself.  the box it comes in is gorgeous and has a great flip top lid and drawer so I am sure I can find a fun use for it.  Plus it is sparkly gold!  You get 6 mini lip glosses, 3 natural and 3 Moxies.  Then you get 9 full size eyecolors! I already owned a couple colors but still, this was well worth the purchase as I can sell or gift the brand new items I don't need.  The only items that I don't wear at all are the Moxie lippies since they aren't natural enough for me and I need to be especially careful with lip products as my chemical sensitivity reactions always start with my lips. 

Here is a video with BE's Jessica Foust talking about the collection:

And here are my pics:

  1. Gorgeous swatches! I always appreciate that your swatches are true in color to real life, thanks! :)

    1. Thank you! You have no idea how hard it is to get lighting just right.

  2. I'm so happy I've found your blog, I love it! I hadn't seen this kit before and until recently was not a huge BM fan, but everything they've been coming out with lately has just been stunning. ESPECIALLY their eyeshadows. I feel like I can see the ultra-pigmentation and smooth texture just from photos!

  3. Ooo love bare minerals!!! Their shadows and glosses are beautiful!


I look forward to reading your comment! Sorry I had to set up moderation because I was getting a lot of spam.
