bare escentuals webcast recap

Hi babes, and a Happy Monday to you all!

So, I had the opportunity on Friday night to attend a live Bare Escentuals webcast at QVC Studio Park in West Chester, PA. I was super-excited to have been invited to their very first webcast, especially after not being able to get tickets to this year’s Beauty Bash. Tickets had sold out in under a minute – that was not a very glossy day, babes – and I tried, tried, tried to find a way to get tickets, but ultimately came up empty-handed. Anyhoo, the webcast was scheduled  from 9:00-9:30 pm and started directly after their on-air broadcast segment with besties QVC host Lisa Robertson, BE founder Leslie Blodgett, and BE’s Jessica Foust. QVC is celebrating their 25th Anniversary this year, and BE was chosen to celebrate along with them as part of their “25 to Watch” program.

We were asked to show up no later than 8:15 so that the group had time to check in, get through security, and take the ten or so minute walk through the building to get to the studio. The group was smaller than I had expected, about 24 or so fans and customers randomly selected from the BE customer database. The event was organized nicely. The team who greeted and managed the group was friendly, explaining to the group what was to be expected. We were all given the opportunity to fill out a question card for Lisa and Leslie, to be asked and answered live in the studio during the webcast if … keep on reading...

bare escentuals buxom babes lip polish

Buxom Babes Lip Polish is a great line of mineral lip polishes with a pretty extensive line of colors. I have a number of them – about 8 different colors – but the one I used for the past couple of days was Starr, one of their four colors that come in their 4 piece Diamond Buxom Babes Mineral Lip Polish kit ($28.00). These mini-sized glosses are sized perfectly for a purse, a clutch, or even a pocket, however, their full-size counterparts are about twice the size, cost $18.00, and are widely available in higher-end cosmetic stores like Ulta and Sephora. They are also available on QVC.com and on the Bare Escentuals website.

I find all the colors I own to be really flattering on my skin tone which is a bit on the pale, cool side, and I would think that because of the sheerness of the color, most colors would work well for most skin tones. Starr is a sheer red that can be lightly applied for day, or more heavily applied for a more dramatic evening look. The colors are on the sheer side, and the ever-present minerals add a light-diffusing sparkle … keep on reading...
