Plum Perfect - Bare Escentuals Fabulous Eyecolor Palette Keeps You Fab On-The-Go!

It is absolutely a shame that a person collects so much that they rarely get around to using the product! I totally needed to get my butt out the door, and everything was everywhere. So I open my Crafts(wo)men chest only to see this quad staring at me. I remembered that I wasn't going to get this until I saw the Champagne color, so I figured hey...BE has put the complete look all together, why fight it? Use it!

Ladies, this palette is outstanding! It will definitely be used for traveling and mornings like this one!  You'll notice that the opening on the Deep Amethyst liner is slightly smaller...perfect for when you're half awake trying to put your minerals on and can barely remember where your eyelids are, much less which color goes where. You can check out the colors quickly through the clear bottoms of the jars. We haven't even discussed foiling these badgirls. Check out the swatches (foiled on left, dry on right). I even used the Strawberry color on my lips! And just forget that this is the "cool" palette...I'm warm-toned, and these can be perfectly rocked by our warm-toned chicas.

I really want to commend Bare Escentuals for making their bareMinerals even more portable. We loved the iQuad concept, but the redesigned packaging has really kept the minerals in their compartments, and the brush is actually perfect for use in all its tiny cuteness. Leslie, whoever re-vamped this one...give 'em a raise!

Collection Includes:
Strawberry Mousse Eyecolor (frothy pink glimmer)
Champagne Eyecolor (iridescent silver pink sheen)
Plush Purple Eyecolor (deep mulberry plum matte),
Deep Amethyst Liner Shadow (smoky eggplant)
Double-ended brush
