Bare Escentuals Bare Luxury November TSV Review & Swatches

Hi Beauties!
  Finally after traveling 4 days, it arrived! This is the first shipment of the Auto Delivery plan for BE's first READY TSV! I have been anxiously awaiting to get this so when Rene aka UPS guy arrived with this, I did a happy dance!!
 When I open the box I was super psyched! I quick reached for my lip brush & the dark lip gloss Dare Devil. I notice the scent is really strong, like licorice mint. I open the lighter shade Wild One and that scent was 10 times worse! I wore it for a bit & notice a pounding headache in the midst. Not good! I'm not sensitive to many scents, except for some sweet ones. This was just way to much for me. I wanted to love these cause I know its suppose to be the BE Boutiques version of Buxom but this in no way comes anywhere near Buxom. It does tingle, but I couldn't tell you much about them since I had to take it off. Just talking about it makes my head hurt. The liners are the new formula Round the Clock waterproof. The colors are gorgeous!! The blue is a true deep royal blue. The brown one has these really cool shimmers to it. I notice that if you smudge the brown one before it dries, you get this amazing glimmery liner. It has green, gold & bluish green glimmer that really shines through when smudged. The Ready palette is not a favorite. I have tan skin & if I wear those shadows particularly the purple one as it says in the application tip card, I would look like a reject from the 80's. The shades are nice however, BE could have done better by pairing the purple with a darker purple or the gold with a deep bronze. In the card it explains how you are suppose to wear these as 1 eye shadow with liner. I don't even know if I have ever worn just 1 eyeshadow. The brushes are super soft & have these beautiful gold handles. The Rose Gold Radiance has been a favorite of mine since it was released in a jumbo jar about 2 years ago. Its a soft rosy base with a light gold shimmer. The lids are really pretty, mirror gold lids & casing for the READY & the gold sparkly clutch is just gorgeous!! 
 I'm not loving this because the shadows don't match, they are way off for my skin, the glosses stink to me & gave me a horrific pounding headache. I am loving on the clutch, liners, brushes & radiance. I don't hate the Ready shades but anyone my skin tone or darker will have to wear this with other shades.These worn alone are not a good look nor a good idea for someone with tan skin.
Ready 2.0 Azure Iris (lavender) & Golden Iris (amber)
Round the Clock 10PM (mocha)
Round the Clock Noon (navy)
Marvelous Moxie Wild Card (peach sheen)
Marvelous Moxie Dare Devil (berry sorbet)
Rose Gold Radiance (lustrous rose)
Gold glitter clutch
Application tip booklet
Gold handle Flawless Face Brush

I'm not sure if I will be keeping this. I don't think 2 liners are worth the cost of the kit.

 You can currently purchase the November TSV from QVC for $49.98.

 NOTE: Please remember that this is my personal opinion of the item being reviewed. I do have a few friends that like this formula lip gloss & the scent does not bother them. I also have friends that have returned their TSV's because like me, they can not stomach the scent of the glosses. So its a personal choice whether your keep this or send it back based on your individual experience.
