BareMinerals’ Love Stories kit

BareMinerals’ Love Stories kit

Posted on Saturday, at

I’m going to assume that this kit was initially available through QVC. I’m unsure of the original release date - I don’t have a premium Delphi membership and wasn’t able to find the mention of the kit by manually trolling the forum archives at BEA. (If someone does know the original release date, can you let me know? Thanks.)

Lordy, Lordy! LiAnn’s Forty!

Lordy, Lordy! LiAnn’s Forty!

The birthday actually happened this past weekend. I spent time with my parents, and mom and I hit Sephora. (Yep. Economy deeply in recession, both of us concerned about long-term savings…and we hit Sephora.) Things with us are a bit reversed: Mom never really taught me how to apply makeup, and makeup application was actually a chore for her. When she hit retirement age, she wore minimal makeup (when she wore any). Then I got interested in mineral makeup,...

The SheSpace’s Put It On Ice collection

The SheSpace’s Put It On Ice collection

Posted on Saturday, at

This collection was originally to be released later — possibly in early 2009 — but the winter hit early, hard, and thorough…so Heather released this collection of icy sheers and satin pearl colors in late-late December 2009, after Christmas but before the closing of the year.

The SheSpace’s Astrology - Aquarius collection

The SheSpace’s Astrology - Aquarius collection

Even though these were all blues and blue-greens, they were closer to “ocean” blue - green-blue - than my personal favored true/navy/red-blue.

The SheSpace’s Ho Ho Holiday 2008 collection

The SheSpace’s Ho Ho Holiday 2008 collection

Posted on Thursday, at

This collection came out after the Something Twinkling This Way Comes collection - hard on its heels, as a matter of fact. The colors were still multilayered, but a less bright palette than previous collections - not quite echoing the overall industry’s trend towards neutral colors. Like all TSS collections, one could buy the entire collection in sample size ($9.50), full size ($82), or singly ($4.50 for a sifterless 3-gram jar). This collection was available beginning in late November, and lasting through...

By the time this collection had come out, the economy had had its first visible faltering. When it came time for me to make my purchase, I had just bought a house - so didn’t have lots of spare money. I ended up buying just over half of the colors in this collection. (I very much appreciate that Heather makes these collections available as-a-whole, or individually. This lets the customers be a bit choosier.)

Brown: Wild Woman Melissa (dark), Grace (light) Wild Woman Melissa is a dark, rich brown with high shimmer. It was available as part of the Fan Club collection, so it's not likely you'll find this color in your local boutique. You can find it on Ebay for outrageous amounts of money...unless the collection is made available again. I use it most often as an inner-eye accent shade or a liner. Grace is a soft, light pinkish beige with medium...
