Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have #5: BareMinerals 2014 Holiday Collection – the Eyes!

IMG_5035

Make Her Up was sent some samples of BareMinerals Holiday Collection. Over the next couple days we’ll be sharing with you what we’ve tried and what we loved (and we loved it all!). Remember MHU doesn’t receive payment for these posts…. just some pretty fantasical products.

First, check out one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE palettes, the Ready Convertible Eyeshadow Palette! This Limited-Edition palette is just as gorgeous as it looks, trust me. I have this one from last year and I’m STILL using it! This thing will last an eternity! BareMinerals Eyeshadow really, truly is about as good as it gets. With the use of a primer (here’s my favorite) this shadow will stay on for 24 hours. Okay, it will stay on for 48 hours, and I’ll just let you think that I wash my makeup off every night like a good girl.

The possibilities are endless with this palette. Hundreds, thousands, MILLIONS of looks are possible with this gorgeous set! Did you notice that the center pops out into a cute mini-palette when you want something smaller? I mean c’mon, it’s genius.

This beautiful palette is only $39 – and that is a STEAL! Don’t wait! This limited edition will be gone before you know it!

Next we have I Love the Nightlife and Afternoon Delights! Each come with 5 Lasting Line and Long Wearing Eyeliners. These go on so easily and beautifully you will be shocked with the results!

Combine these two products together – and imagine the possibilities!

This collection of Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliners includes five must-have daytime shades for strikingly beautiful eye looks that last. Each wearable shade glides on a precise line for maximum color intensity-every day.

Love this trio of products and the red is a truly wearable red. Below you can see my bare lip, followed by one coat of the Mini Lip Pencil in Ruby. I like how creamy the liner is, makes it very easy to get smooth lines without tugging or dryness.

Step 2 is one coat of Mini Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Red Armour. This lipstick is so creamy and smooth the color is such a gorgeous shade of red. And the final step is one coat of Lip Glace in Ruby Spark. Lip glace is gloss perfection! It’s long wearing without being sticky and leaves my lips feeling smooth and hydrated.

A great collection that creates a show stopping Ruby Red lip!
