I recently bought True Gold eye color and the Natural Lip Trio from Bare Escentuals online because they gave me a coupon for a free eye color (I’ll show you that one later this month)!
I’ve never worn gold or yellow eye shadow before so I wanted to give it a try. I choose True Gold and I’m glad I did! It looks golden, no other way to describe it! I applied it “foiled,” that is, I wet the brush first and the application intensifies with a shiny, foil-like finish.
The natural lip kit is slightly darker than my natural lip color. I was expecting it to be more on the sheer side but I actually like the finished look, it’s very neutral.
The kit comes with lip liner – one of the reasons I bought it since I don’t typically use it and wanted to give it a try – lipstick and lip gloss all in the natural color. The liner works very well as a base to keep the lipstick in place. For example, when I blotted it with Kleenex a bit of the paper stuck to my lip! The only difference with the liner is that the lipstick doesn’t feel as moisturizing as when I use the lipstick on it’s own. But on the plus side I get longer wear.
The lip gloss is pretty and feels good on my lips but in general, BE gloss hasn’t passed the husband stickyness test – He doesn’t like to kiss me when I wear it! What can I say, sometimes a girl’s gotta look pretty.
The natural lip color is slightly more pink in the artificial lighting. I included the flash photo so you can see the actual color, but wow did that flash catch me off guard even though I was the one taking the picture!
Products are available for purchase at Bare Escentuals online, boutiques, Ulta, Sephoria, and department stores.
