product lust.....Bare Escentuals Ruby Collection
i love kits. the ones that really impress me give you a variety of products you'll actually use.
a lot of lines are guilty of having kits that have just a couple of gotta-have-it products, and a few others that i'm not in love with. it's even more vexing when the products come only in the kit and aren't available "a la carte".
Bare Escentuals is notorious for this with both brushes and eyeshadow colors.
However, Bare Escentuals Ruby Collection is at the top of my lust list. i wanted it just by reading about it on sephora.com, but i've also seen it in person. it is gorgeous!!!
the website says, "This Sephora-exclusive collection includes bareMinerals Ruby Radiance All-Over Face Color (pink rose) infused with ruby, bareMinerals Golden Ruby Eye Color (peach gold) infused with ruby, bareMinerals Vintage Ruby Eye Color (rose fawn) infused with ruby, bareMinerals Wild Ruby Liner Shadow (plum chocolate) infused with ruby, Double-Ended Classic Black Mascara & Ruby Beautifully Luminous Lashes, Ruby Buxom Big & Healthy Full Color Lip Polish (jeweled mauve), a Soft Sweep Cheek Brush with custom handle, a Double-Ended Tapered Shadow & Eyeliner Brush with custom handle, and a stylish faux-crocodile Ruby Clutch."
i really do like the shadows in this line. they have great pigmentation, and i love the sparkle. my favorite parts of this kit are the double-ended mascara (particularly the ruby lashes end-it's red glitter for your lashes!!) and the brush, which has tiny bristles that are perfect for precision work. you can't go wrong with Buxom Lips, and the clutch is cute.
for $54.00, this is a gift worth asking santa for!!
