Bare Escentuals - Pure & Bare Pleasures

I am a big fan of these annual 9 piece sets that BE puts out. With 9 eyeshadows to choose from at $48 I say ring it up! There are actually 2 sets one being sold at Sephora (Bare) and the other at BE boutiques (Pure).

Of the 2 Pure Pleasures wins my vote because 5 of the shadows are limited to the set while Bare is mostly color you can find in the permanent line.

Pure Pleasures has Pamper, Classic Rock, Shantung, True Gold, Cultured Pearl, Magnetize, Madras, Black Pearl and Caviar shadows.

Caviar is a deep midnight blue black that makes a great liner for any of the colors in the set. True Gold is a 24k gold that is a gorgeous BE staple and one of the best gold shadows out there from any brand. Madras is my favorite of the limited offerings. BE describes it as a neutral taupe but I think it has quite a bit of warm peachy undertones and it is a great one nearly anyone can wear.

As I have said in a lot of posts lately, this is a lovely gift for a makeup junkie friend or a lovely gift to reward yourself for all that early shopping!
