So I settled on going in to the Bare Escentuals shop on 16th Street.
Now, I think I've told you before that I just can't wear BE foundation. I couldn't find a perfect shade match, it was a bit too oily for me, and worst of all, it made it itch.
But I love all their other products.
I saw their Get Started: Eyes, Cheeks, and Lips kit in Fair to Light ($49) and couldn't resist.
- Winter White Eyecolor
- Smoke Eyecolor
- Nurture Liner Shadow
- Kiss Blush
- Dolly Mini Buxom Lips
- Double-Ended Quick Color & Crease Brush
- Heavenly Liner Brush
- Tapered Blush Brush
So far, I love the eyecolors and the blush. And I am obsessed with the crease brush- I get perfect application of my darker color in the crease when I use this. Perfect.
I have not gotten brave enough to try the liner shadow and liner brush yet. The lippie I am "meh" about. I typically like more pigment for a lipcolor, but this is a nice neutral that I can slop on to run into Target or something. It does smell fabulous.
On a side note, the poor Politician is still battling his stomach woes. We went to church Sunday and he went to school Monday, but woke up this morning not feeling well. His class has a big field trip on Thursday, so I hope he feels better by then. He's really excited and I'd hate for him to have to miss that too, since he's already missed his Tball party and a birthday party.
