I can't lie...I still love when people who have been traveling bring me gifts from their journeys. Hubby went shopping on his way back from a weekend trip and picked me up some new makeup to play with from Bare Essentials.

Buxom Lip Polish in Lana and Kitty
bareMinerals Smoky Eye Tutorial
I will play in the mirror with makeup all day but don't wear it on a daily basis. I always feel like it looks fake and cakey. I was in the mirror last night reading and re-reading the directions to the Smoky Eye Tutorial while I made a sad attempt at the subtle smoky eye (there are also directions for a sultry smoky eye). I definitely need more practice on that front but I absolutely adore the lip gloss! Kitty, the lighter color is a perfect gloss for daytime and actually does plump up the lips like the box claims. Lana (darker) is a clear gloss with a deep red tint and very sexy.
Have you tried any of the Bare Essentials products? If so which ones are your favorites? I love testing out new beauty products, even if nobody but Hubby sees it.
