  1. Ok I’m just going to say it: holy crap is that a lot of awesomeness!!! I know I’m going to need to narrow it down, but I’m finding it hard to choose between the Ready Luminizers, the Shine On and Light Show palettes, The Star Treatment, and the Night Vision set

  2. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Jade Jade

    That. Is. MASSIVE.

  3. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Alicia Alicia

    I want A Vision in Velvet!

  4. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of rebecca blueraccoon

    The lip gloss sets look fantastic, and I’m really curious about the Ready luminizers. I don’t know about anything else, though, but there are certainly a lot of things to choose from!

  5. I’d love to try the foundations, I’ve always wondered about them!

    • I love their foundations! You can go into a BE boutique or store that sells BE (Ulta, Macy’s etc) and have someone do a foundation match for free so that way you can try it out. Just make sure to call your store ahead of time.

  6. I haven’t drank the bare minerals kool aid at all but their gift sets always look GORGEOUS!

  7. Milly

    When are they releasing these products in the uk?

  8. Wow. This has got to be some of the most GORGEOUS product photography ever.

  9. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Lauren crystallinity

    Bummed by the lack of buxom creme shadows in this- (the ones with the dog names!) they are such great formulas, and I’d love to see that line expanded!

    • Melissa

      Totally agree with you!! Those are some of my favorite cream shadows and I’m always on the lookout for new shades.

  10. Too many selections to choose from…I get the dizzying effect from all of this…and never got into the loose eyeshadows….just too difficult to apply.

  11. Jennyfer

    my goodness, I think I’ve fallen in love<3

  12. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Sabriel Sabriel

    I am pretty excited about this! I need new mineral veil, and the balance and boost kit seems like it would be lovely, but I’d want to test it out first.

    Besides that, those pressed blush/shadow kits look like they’d be great for travel.

    FYI those silver brushes are listed as being synthetic on the Ulta and Sephora websites. I am not sure about the gold brushes.

  13. Wow! Those are gorgeous! I love the pallets which include eyes, blush & gloss (White Hot, Light Show) – They are perfect for using on the go!

  14. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Kimberly Kim

    Everything is sooo pretty! I really want the Royal Treatment set.

  15. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Aiman Aiman

    WOW! Such amazing products and packaging! Love it!!!

  16. That gold bag in the last photo reminds me of what my grandma used to own to put her change and cash inside….and she would be about 116 or so now. Guess it would be a good eyeglass case.

    • Lisa J

      OMG…that’s exactly what I thought!! My grandmother used to smoke, unfortunately, so she kept a pack of cigarettes, cash, a lipstick and a tiny mirror in hers. It looked EXACTLY like it! I may buy it for nostalgic reasons…plus it won’t smell like smoke. :X

  17. Jillian

    WOW. I think it’s been a long time since I’ve been excited for a Holiday collection, and this one’s gotten me REALLY excited!!

  18. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Brenda Brenda

    I’ve never tried bareMinerals, buxom or any of the bare lines but I would definitely pick up quite a few items from this to try. I’ve heard great things about the products and I think these prices are decent.

  19. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Terri Terri

    Really lovely things here….I am most interested to see what the balance and boost is like. I see many things here for my daughters for Christmas and perhaps some co-workers too!!!

  20. Lyn

    I really was more excited about last year’s Holiday items. What is disappointing to me is the lack of loose mineral products, and I see nothing except 1 or 2 new natural lip colors (which are my favorite). I don’t like the Moxies, Buxoms, or Pretty Amazing lip colors nearly as much because they are not all natural. Although I enjoy the Ready line, I think BE needs to get back to its roots a bit – please, BE don’t forget all the people who love your original products!

    • Lyn

      Just to add, Simply Irresistible seems like a great kit – just wish there were 1 or 2 more complete kits in loose minerals (not just eye colors).

      Still a BE fan – but I know I am not alone in my feelings.

  21. Okay, BE’s holiday launches are officially ridiculous. I don’t think I can find a single thing here that wouldn’t be perfect under the Christmas tree, and the images — guh. I need to know who shot these! //flails

    (Also? Really feeling the lack of gold foil in my life right now.)

  22. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Melinda Melinda

    Holy Moley, I want them all!

  23. Tasha

    Do you know when and where the royal treatment collection will be released? That and the Simply irresistible collection look absolutely gorgeous! I really haven’t tried BE products and would love to get my hands on these babies!

    • Kelly

      Yes. Where can I buy The Royal Treatment? No, Sephora, Ulta and BE page.
      I do not know where else to look. =(

      My English is terrible sorry.

      • Linda

        I know! I thought the same thing, I wonder if thats a veil or foundation…

        I couldn’t find it either :( . Maybe they’re releasing it November…

        We’ll find it by December i’m sure! :)

  24. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Gabriella Gabriella

    Wow! I’ve never been very interested in the brand before, usually mac, urban decay, lancome, or estee lauder catch my eye. But these promo pics are stunning and I’m extremely eager to pick up one of these lovelies :)

  25. I wasn’t very interested in anything in this collection until yesterday when I went to Ulta and bought the Night Vision liner set (I only wanted the 5 am pencil but you can’t buy that in a full size so I sucked it up and used a 20% off coupon to buy the set). I glanced at the “A Vision of Velvet” set but passed on it…then I came home and did a swatch search to see what the colors looked like. I finally decided to go back today and get it (using another 20% off coupon). Yesterday they had at least 15 of these on the shelf. When I grabbed mine today there were 10. By the time I got to the front of the line they were all gone (a woman asked me if I was positive I was going to get it and if I changed my mind to please give it to her). I’ve never tried bareMinerals shadows or liners before so hopefully I won’t be disappointed.
