Almost an Addict and Faux Lagoon

Fortunately or unfortunately my Bare Escentuals collection is big enough that I have one or two eye colours from many of the new kits featured in the May show. So I decided to do looks that are similar to the Bare Escentuals Addicts kit and the Bare Lagoon kit. The only colour I am missing from the BEA kit is emotion, so I used eclipse instead (I've heard they are close). I have the blush and lip gloss from bare lagoon but neither of the eye colours. Some on BEA have said that Mambo is close to Bamboo so that's what I used. I only saw a swatch of the liner online but based on that I chose Marina, so hopefully that is close. If you don't have Marina French navy would work just as well.
I did get Sweet Siren and the June TSV so I will do looks with those once I get them. 

I really like how both combos turned out, but I especially like the one with Bamboo. 

I did get my hair cut please try not to laugh too hard--I hate it!

  1. Just beautiful Becky! I am getting a 1/2 jar of lagoon liner through a swap so I should be able to try out the actual look soon, might try marina out first though :-)

  2. I should see if I can find some lagoon. Please post a swatch of it if you get a chance. I can't wait to see you look.

  3. Lovely pictures!

    I think your haircut is really cute and sassy! :)

    My collection just recently got big enough to have overlaps with the kits presented on QVC each show. I miss when I was super excited for all the kits. :-/ Still, I can't wait for the next show. :)

  4. Thanks for the compliment on the haircut maybe it's not as bad as I think it is.

    I am excited for the next show too. I do miss the days when everything was new. But now I can save a little money on some of the shows which is good :)
