bareMinerals Degrees of Dazzling (Part 1)

bareMinerals Degrees of Dazzling ($79.00 for 20 x 0.01 oz.) contains twenty loose eyeshadows in four different finishes. There are five eyeshadows in each of these finishes: Velvet, High Shine, Glimmer, and Liner Shadow. If you’re someone who normally uses an eyeshadow primer or doesn’t mind using their loose eyeshadows with a damp brush, you’ll enjoy this set quite a bit. On the other hand, if you want the color to apply perfect with a dry application (and have no desire to use primer), then it’s decent to good, but it’s not outstanding. Some of the shades bind incredibly well together with just a brush and nothing else, but some require a damp brush and/or primer to allow the loose color to bind and smooth out. Generally, these wore between seven and nine hours for me, with the matte shades tending to wear a little shorter than the really rich, metallic shades.  Part two is here.

bareMinerals Crystallized Collection (Quick)

bareMinerals Crystallized Collection (was $54.00, now $38.00) is a holiday set that’s already on sale, so I guess the timing of this review still works out since now you can get it for even more of a steal than before! It contains eight products, and most of them are full-sized. Everything is in silver-hued packaging. The standsout in the kit are definitely the Eyeshadow Duo (but I’m such a huge fan of the formula, that’s not a surprise) and lipstick.

5 Must-Have Burgundy Lipsticks

Reader Rashmi requested a top five of burgundy lipsticks, and I have to say, finding a really lovely burgundy lip color that’s permanent is difficult. It seems to be a favorite hue to go-to for limited edition collections, though.

  1. OCC Black Dahlia — is a deep, dark burgundy with a hint of brown that lasts and lasts
  2. MAC Endless Drama — a deepened, semi-opaque burgundy red with a soft, frosted finish
  3. Giorgio Armani #408 — is a muted, reddish burgundy with a pearly shimmer
  4. Buxom Menace — a brightened, berry-ish burgundy with a shimmery finish
  5. Laura Mercier Merlot — a lightened, muted berry-burgundy with a natural finish

What’s your favorite burgundy lipstick?

bareMinerals Luminous Hydrating Body Cream Review & Photos

bareMinerals Luminous Hydrating Body Cream ($35.00 for 6.0 oz.) is a shimmering body cream that’s supposed to be “ultrarich, non-greasy.” It’s a thick body cream–somewhere between a more typical body butter and a whipped body butter, as it’s fairly solid and isn’t going to drip out of the jar, but it spreads well and doesn’t have to be scraped out by a legitimate block o’ body butter.
