Here Kitty and Pug

My DH was playing music at a dinner and I wanted to do a kind of rock and roll look. Pug is a great base for smoky eyes of all colours.

Bare Escentuals Girlfriend Collection

The Girlfriend collection was released a few weeks ago on QVC. Hopefully it will be in stores as well because it is really pretty. It is a simple classic look. Both of the shadows have a sheen so they are not quite matte. I like both colours a lot the darker colour is a blue/grey and the lighter colour is a light pink. I as usual did not use the liner pencil that came with it. The first time I wore this I wore french navy as the liner and I got lots of compliments. In the picture I am wearing foliage which looks more like the liner that it came with. I really love the blush that comes with this set. It is a nice soft pink. BE has been putting out some fantastic blushes lately!!

Buxom Stay There in Pug and Unforgettable

While in KC I picked up Pug and the new charity colour from Bare Escentuals Unforgettable. Hopefully silver will be "in" this fall because my collection of silver shadows has really been growing! Pug is a beautiful pewter with some purpleish sparkle. I think it will make a great base for a lot of different looks. The look I'm posting was the first time I used it--I just did pug lash to crease no liner or anything, and I think it looked good. It will definitly bring it with me when I travel and use it a lot when I am in a hurry.

Unforgettable is also silver/grey it is sparkly and brighter when foiled.

EYES: Pug lash to crease, mascara.
CHEEKS and LIPS: Optimist blush and Jelly Roll gloss

KC Royals look

Last week I went on a mini vacation. I went to Kansas City with my family. We went to the Negro Leagues baseball museum and the jazz museum as well as a Royals game. So of course I had to wear Royals colours (even though they were playing the Yankees and I have watched them since I was a kid). This is the look I did for the game.

While I was in KC I went to the Oak Park Mall Boutique and Sephora so I got a few new colours. I got Buxom Stay there in Pug, the new charity colour Unforgettable, Dakota, and Here Kitty. Before I left I also ordered the Girlfriend Collection and the Royal Treatment collection. I don't have the Royal treatment collection yet. Hopefully over the weekend I will be able to post some swatches and looks with the new stuff.
