bareMinerals The Natural High Blush

bareMinerals The Natural High Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “golden petal peach.” It’s a peachy-gold shimmered rosy pink; a little coral-pink but still more pink than coral even on my warmer skin tone. It’s a shade a lot of us have in our stash, in some variation, as many, many brands make this shade–most notably NARS Orgasm. NARS Deep Throat is darker, pinker. MAC Fleet Fast is redder, less shimmery. Tarte Glisten is comparable.

Top 10 of 2012: Makeup Palettes

There were actually a lot of fantastic palettes released this year! I already pulled up twenty that to consider for the top ten, and I had only reached August (I go backwards).  So here are my picks–and I tried to include a variety of brands that were all excellent, but full disclosure: could have easily included more bareMinerals, Guerlain, and another Tom Ford (Enchanted).

What was your favorite makeup palette from 2012?

bareMinerals The Cocktail Hour Eyeshadow Palette

bareMinerals The Cocktail Hour Eyeshadow Palette ($24.50 for 0.28. oz.) is a holiday palette from last year, but it’s actually still available through bareMinerals at a discounted price of $24.50–it originally retailed for $40.00–and it is a truly fantastic palette. I’m a huge fan of the Ready eyeshadow range, and this palette is and was excellent. This palette contains these shades: Black Tie Optional (black velvet), Icebreaker (pink pearl), Swanky (dazzling plum), Spiked (copper blush), Elixir (luxe lilac), Invite Only (taupe slate), Libation (sugared cinnamon), and Shaken Not Stirred (jeweled envy).
