beauty product alert: Bare Escentuals

And this is coming from someone who is not at all a beauty product maven. The most recent cosmetic I got really excited about was my Nars lip gloss in Scandal, (still very excited about that BTW), which I discovered in January.

So last night when I unwrapped a bunch a new products from bare escentuals I was pretty curious. We did a really great giveaway with them on 100 Layer Cake and as a thank you, they sent us each a little care package of (it turns out) completely awesome, natural, non-paraben, non-sulfate products. I think I might be in love. And I swear on this blog that I am not saying this because they gave me free stuff.

For instance, take this lip gloss:

(The color is Lana and it's apparently only available at Sephora).

To. Die. For. It's perfect. It looks dark, but it's totally sheer and pretty much just makes your lips look a few shades darker than they would be naturally. The only downside is it's lip-plumping. Remember that craze like 4 or 5 years ago? Like topical collagen injections in the form of lip gloss? I had Lip Fusion and I thought it was awesome. For like 2 weeks. Anyway, this stuff doesn't feel the same, really more just minty and tingle-y, but it's worth it for the color.

AND their bare minerals powder is really nice. Like I think I might have found a new favorite product. I'm not forsaking Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, by any means. But this is a good addition to your pretty face arsenal.

That's it for Friday. Hope you all have a beautiful fall weekend.

I just bought their "well rested" powder for under my eyes and I'm in love with it. Good stuff.
