Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Pretty Amazing Lip Collection and Afternoon Distractions

Published in: Makeup, Product Reviews

bare minerals pretty amazing lip collection

I don’t know if I’ll be watching American Horror Story again next week… Come to think of it, I wish I could un-see the series premiere. I’m sitting here at my desk in the middle of a perfectly fine afternoon, and I’m freaking the eff out!


I keep looking over my shoulder, half expecting to see this dude watching me from behind.

Safe place! Safe place!

The only thing keeping me sane right now is good old-fashioned distraction, and to that end I’ve been looking at pictures of kittens, devouring Kind Bars (Almond and Coconut, of course), and checking out a few kits from the new Bare Minerals bareEscentuals holiday 2011 collection, including this cutie patootie called the Pretty Amazing Lip Collection ($28).

Have you tried any of the Pretty Amazing Lip Colors yet? If you like long-wearing liquid lip products, this limited edition kit comes with four of ’em — little minis in both sheen and glossy finishes.

I plan to try a few looks with some of the many Bare Escentuals bareMinerals holiday kits next week, but for now, here’s a quick peek at the Pretty Amazing kit, along with some swatches. 🙂

Swatches from the left: Savvy, Confidence, Sass and Oomph

Cute colors, yeah? Nothing too far out or va-va-voom! Just four solid shades for work, class or dates.


I get the feeling that these colors would work for gals of all ages — the whole extended family of ladies who love makeup, like the older aunties, the lolas, the teenagers and maybe even tweens.

PRICE: $28
AVAILABILITY: Coming soon to Bare Escentuals Boutiques, Sephora and also online.

BTW, if you need to find me, I’ll be rocking back and forth in the corner. No more scary TV shows late at night for this girl!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Bare Escentuals’ brushes tend to be scratchy. Hopefully, the brushes in the holiday collection will be different. =)

    Oh wow, these shades are pretty! I can see what you mean when you say that they can work for lots of people.

  4. Yasmin says:

    It’s the middle of the night here in Germany and I am all alone. And even though I didn’t click your ‘this dude’ link, I can imagine who you’re talking about and now I’m freaking out! But I will definitely be watching next week 🙂

  5. Marian says:

    Bare Escentuals has really stepped up their game. I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying their Prime Time cream eyeshadows. They make a great eye primer and look great alone. I find paint pots drying. These are perfect!

  6. Marie says:

    I just saw these today and put it on my to-do list to look up swatches/reviews and here you come like a mind-reading makeup blog angel to save me… ;____; Thank you.

  7. AnieJ says:

    These actually look quite nice, but how much product is in each of those tubes? Are we talking $28 for a regular tube worth or for a half of a regular tube worth?

  9. Naj says:

    Whoa! What show is that? I’m totally gonna check it out.

    And at first, I thought these are mini lipsticks, when I saw the first picture. I kinda like the idea of lipgloss sets. I am eyeing Benefit’s Ticket To Glossytown. But to buy it here in Singapore, I’d be totally ripped off. Bummer. 🙁

  10. Nina says:

    oh that set is pretty and would be an awesome gift for a lipstick/lipgloss gal!

  11. Lola says:

    I like the first two the best. They have such nice pigmentation 🙂

  12. JoJo says:

    Cute. Great for travel. Loving the first two
