The Bare Escentuals Flawless & Fearless Duo ($17 USD / $21 CDN) is such an adorable little gift set for the holidays. As one of the brand’s more affordable gifts, this one even comes with a little ribbon for hanging on a tree or its small enough to stuff into someone’s stocking. The duo contains two mini products (deluxe-sample sized)- so let’s take a look. To see the products in action, make sure to check out the video review (check the See More list below)
I’m really in love with this cardboard-material packaging. I can picture it being wrapped or given so many different ways! Honestly…I think I’m going to turn this into a lip pencil holder after I’m done with it. Bare Escentuals is sure making me recycle the packaging this season (good job guys)!
As we’ve been seeing a lot from these collections, the Bare Escentuals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara is making an appearance in this kit as well. I’ve mentioned that while I do like this mascara, I don’t find it to be life-changing (great lashes, but no WOW for me). It is SUPER black though, and I do love that. Its a great all-round mascara. No clumping, no flaking, no smearing.
The Lip Color
I’m really happy I’ve been able to try out a couple of these 100% Natural Lip Colors this season and this shade definitely packs the most punch. Its a cool mauve-pink, quite a statement lip really, but pairs beautifully with the mascara. It’s definitely a universal shade (it may look scary, but you know you can rock it!) so that makes gift-giving even easier. It’s the most pigmented and least glossy I’ve come across out of the formula…I’m actually really in love with it!
