If you’re not using Ebates, you’re wasting $$.  Right now Sephora.com is offering 8% back on all purchases and QVC is also among the retailers you can save through.  This is a great time to sign up if you haven’t already.  I just did all my online Back-to-School shopping for my girls AND saved money at the same time.. gotta love that!

Face Fashion: Pretty Wild

Posted in Boutiques, Kits, Looks, Macy's, Newness!, Nordstroms, Sephora on July 19, 2011 by keshajae

I have so much to say about this one, I can hardly stand it.  Yes, I have a lot of Bare Escentuals kits, and yes, I love them all, but this one.. well, every so often BE puts out a kit that resonates so well with you, you’re sure they created it with you in mind.  For me, this is one of those.  I’ve seen mixed reviews on this one, but man, I really really love it.  If you have coloring similiar to mine, this is a must-have. 

How I love thee.. let me count the ways..

1) Eyecolors.  Violetta and Greenhouse.  With my eyes (blue or green, depending on the day), the combo of the purple with the green just made them pop.  Violetta is described as a muted lavender, but it almost seems a bit periwinkle to me.  Greenhouse is described as an earthy green, and that’s a great description.  Both colors lean towards being matte, which aren’t my usual first picks, but these are gorgeous.  These colors make me love matte. 

2)  The blush.  Oh man, I love this one.  It reminds me a bit of Fruit Cocktail.  Bright, lively.  The perfect pop of pink color.  Think of wild summer roses. 

3)  The mascara.  Who’d of thunk a Blue Black Mascara would be the perfect highlight to the kit?  I never cease to be amazed at how BE pulls kits together the way they do.  This is a brand new color in this formulation, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it full size.  It’s a pop of color that isn’t obvious, just enough for someone to look at you and think.. “wow, what an awesome look”.  The secret’s in the mascara I’m telling you.

4)  The Lipcolor.  Vivacious is described as a wild rose, which compliments the blush perfectly.  Again, think wild summer roses.  The helps tie together the earthy floral feel to this whole set.  I love the copy in the box that says, “this garden is no place for a wallflower”.

5)  The Delivery.  Otherwise known as packaging.  At first I was a bit disheartened when I saw that this box is designed differently from the previous Face Fashion sets.  The OCD in me wanted all my boxes to sit perfectly and uniformly on my shelf.. this one being bigger was going to throw everything off.  I have to say, while it is bigger, and doesn’t exactly match, I love the look and graphic design of it.  The interior insert is beautiful, and while it is bigger, it’s not “too” big.  I’ve included a picture of my kits on my shelf so that you can see the difference.  I just wish the “spine” was the same.. again, my OCD coming out.  😉  After falling in love with this set as much as I have though, I could never let the size difference of the box deter me from getting this one.  Seriously.  Love this. 

Here are some pics of this kit, as well as some of my wild roses.  While I love all my BE, it’s not often that I have such an emotional response to a certain kit.  This one did it for me.. (the Happiness Kit and Pure Moxie did too).  Near and dear this one is.  🙂

This kit retails for 34.00 and can be purchased in the BE Boutiques, BareEscentuals.com, Sephora, Macys, and Nordstroms.  What are you waiting for?  This kit is readily available for the purchasing.. 😀

 

 

My Ariel’s Undersea Adventure Look

Posted in Buxom, Looks, Sephora on June 25, 2011 by keshajae

Oh man.. so much to say about this one.  🙂  Some of you that follow this Blog and the FB page for it, know that recently my family and I took a weeks vacation to Disneyland.  Deciding what makeup to bring whenever I travel has become what I dread the most.. I always seem to overpack, and yet still, everytime I forget something I “need”.  This time I packed about 8 of my Buxom Stay-There Shadows, hemmed and hawwed over bringing Husky and Schnauzer.. decided to leave them home, and what did I try to reach for as soon as I was there?  Sure enough, like the ONLY two I left home.  Figures right?  😉  Anywho.. I digress.

This look came about by sheer accident and a little bit of laziness.  See, when you’re at Disneyland the idea every morning is to try and get into the park as early as possible to avoid looooooong wait times.  Being as we were guests at the Grand Californian, we were allowed access into the parks a full hour before they opened, so of course we wanted to take advantage of that.  🙂  This meant getting up quite early in order to get breakfast in before starting our day.  I say all this because on this particular morning, my desire for sleep took priority over my desire to do a full face of intricate makeup.  🙂  I hadn’t washed my face the night before (love you BE for being able to get away with this) and still had most of my Shih-Tzu Buxom shadow still in place.  I was like.. “hmmmm.. what kind of look can I do without having to remove any of this?”  Bad, I know.. but it worked.  lol.  Our plan for this morning was to hit Ariel’s Undersea Adventure FIRST THING since we knew we could walk over and pretty much walk onto the ride since the park wasn’t open yet to the public.  (Normal wait times for this attraction were NUTS since it had JUST opened).  I doctored my previous days makeup and came up with this look that I’ve recreated here. 

Oh.. and if you get a chance to go to Disneyland anytime soon, you MUST check out this attraction.  The Little Mermaid remains one of my all-time favorite Disney movies (I saw it in the theatre when it came out 6x’s).. and this ride is just fantastic for any fans of the film.  Here’s a great YouTube video from Disney on what all went into this ride. 

Ariel’s Undersea Adventure

Another super cool preview

I’ll also include some of the pictures I took.  🙂

Here’s the look:

  • Foundation in Original Golden Fair
  • Light layer of Shih-Tzu Buxom Stay-There Shadow as a base
  • St. Bernard Buxom Stay-There Shadow all over the lid and up into the crease
  • Sheepdog Buxom Stay-There Shadow on the inner half of lid and blended into St. Bernard
  • Sapphire Buxom Insider Liner on upper lashline
  • Blue Jade Buxom Insider Liner on lower lashline
  • 1 coat Flawless Definition Mascara in Black
  • 1 coat Buxom Mascara in Black
  • Papaya Blush
  • Lacey Buxom (hard to find nowadays as it’s been discontinued.  If you don’t have this, you can find it on BE.com under the Last Chance items… this is a summer must-have for me.. I still haven’t gotten used to the idea that it’s been discontinued)  😦
  • Finished with Gold Mineral Veil

Sephora: More Buxoms!

Posted in Buxom, Lips, Newness!, Sephora on May 23, 2011 by keshajae

These aren’t “new” colors, but they were previously only available in mini’s, special kits, or on QVC.  I think Samantha is a color everyone needs, and Leslie too of course.  I have a special fondness for Tonya, and Debbie, I don’t have her.. “yet”.  🙂
