Bare Escentuals Year Of Beauty Collection Review & Swatches (picture heavy)

Hi Beauties!
 I'm bringing you a sneak peek of the most anticipated collection of the year! I was super lucky to get this early! So of course I want to share it with you! I know that times are a little hard now for some so if you can only afford one collection this year, this is the one you need! All full size jars, in an array of colors, this one is sure to keep you happy for a while.
 This beautiful collection is named after the months of the year. January is a light periwinkle with a soft sheen a color never seen before in the BE world. February is a sheer medium pink with fine pink sheen. Like if Panache & Free Spirit had a baby, it would be February! March is a light lime green with a gold fine shimmer. April is a light dusty baby blue with light blue, gold, pink & diamond shimmer. May is a matte medium grape. June is is a lightest yellow sheen with diamond twinkles. June is a gorgeous deep royal blue with a hint of purple sheen. August is a golden bronze shimmer. September is the most beautiful & most difficult to describe! It is a brown sheen base with green, gold, pink & blue sheen shimmer with a hint of chunky iridescent blue twinkles.  Its amazing! October is a a deep purple base with burgundy & purple shimmer.  November is the strong version of Herbal Tea ;) It is a a medium grey base with pink shimmer. And now for the star that stole my heart December! Ahhh December how beautiful you are!! December's base is pure white but the shimmer is what makes this dreamy. It has these gorgeous twinkles that look like diamonds but color shift from blue to purple to pink. I just can't put into words how amazingly fantastical this color is! You just have to see it. Its the color I took most pictures of because I was trying to capture its beauty. It wasn't a complete success, I had to blur out one of the photos so you could see what I mean. That being said, I still didn't do it justice :( 
 The collection comes in a beautiful red box. The eyeshadows are stored in a slide out draw. January-June in one row, July-December in another row. This collection is absolutely gorgeous & you all need it!!

 This will be available during the preview sale this Friday for $72. However, if you can wait until Bare Escentuals Friends & Family Sale which is December 8-11 you can get this baby for $57.60! Now that is a GREAT deal!!
