Bare Escentuals All Wrapped Up 6-Piece Eye Color Collection Swatches and Review

Here's one of the cutest holiday collections Bare Escentuals has come up with.  It is the All Wrapped Up 6-Piece Eye Color Collection that comes in a darling gift box.  It's pretty straightforward- a gift set of six festive eye colors that are perfect for the holidays:

0.01 oz eye color in Bauble, a bright amethyst glimmer

0.01 oz eye color in Garland, a champagne nude sheen

0.01 oz eye color in Mistletoe, a light lemongrass glimmer

0.01 oz eye color in Present, a melon sorbet matte

0.01 oz eye color in Tinsel, a sapphire twilight glimmer

0.01 oz eye color in The Gift, a bronze copper glimmer

Tinsel, Garland, Present
The Gift, Mistletoe, Bauble

The colors are indeed quite festive and are perfect for the holidays, and it's just a nice collection of not just bright colors but even soft, neutral ones that would be great to mix and match with. 

I like each one of these colors, not one is a dud.  My fave is Present, a matte soft peach, and Tinsel, a sapphire glimmer that is a great holiday color.  Present would be great as a lid color.  Bauble, an amethyst glimmer, reminds me of my MAC Quietly pigment that I wear regularly with purples and pinks.  Garland is a pretty champagne nude sheen that would work as a browbone or inner corner highlighter, or even as a light wash on the lids.  Mistletoe is a pretty lemongrass green that is light enough to be an unobtrusive green on the lids.  Lastly, The Gift is one of my favorites as well- a bronze copper glimmer that is great as an outer lid or crease color.

What I like about these shadows is that the colors are festive and yet they are wearable.  I also like that they are not too shimmery - just a whisper of sheen that would perk up tired-looking eyes.  They even threw in a matte Present that would look great with the other low-sheen colors.

If you are thinking of a gift for a makeup enthusiast, its price of $34.00 plus S&H on won't break the bank.
