Bare Escentuals Velvet Luxe Collection Review & Swatches

Hi Beauties,
 I got these last night via UPS & I just couldn't wait to tell you about them. I am not a fan of matte shadows, I always add a little sparkle over them but these, they shall stay matte!! They are gorgeous shades! Although they don't foil well because of their consistency, they look gorgeous just buffed on. They do not mix well with water. Like the Soft Focus colors, these are creamier. They are heavily to get the foiled look without foiling, just apply with a Tapered shadow brush.
 Velvet Luxe  includes all different color shadows. There's a cream, green, grey, rose, taupe & chocolate. I must say I am completely in love with the green & charcoal. Both shades are very unique. The charcoal is a deep grey with a purple undertone & the green is a rich khaki green. Very beautiful!! The cream is a soft cream shade, the mauve is a medium rose, the taupe is a medium greyish brown, the espresso is a rich chocolate shade, think cocoa ;)
 These are extremely wearable shades! I would rock the cream, mauve & charcoal together or cream, taupe, green & espresso or mauve, taupe & get it, the all mesh well! So if you are a fan of mattes or just looking for some extremely wearable, easy to wear shades, these are for you!

Velvet Cream  (french vanilla)
Velvet Mauve (vintage rose)
Velvet Green (dark moss)
Velvet Espresso (coffee bean hue)
Velvet Taupe (milk chocolate)
Velvet Charcoal (deep slate)
Wrapped in a cute storage box & an insert is included.

VELVET LUXE is currently available at for $34.56! Makes for a great Holiday gift too! Plus it already comes in a cute box so you can just put a bow on it or put it in a gift bag & you're good to go!


  1. I told myself if I *had* to have this, I would wait for it to be available in other venues, to avoid QVC's usurious S&H charges.

    Then I looked at your swatches.

    BIG mistake. :-)

  2. Oh yeah this one is trouble!

  3. I got mine today. Can't wait to try them. All this newness is trouble.
