Bare Ruby

Yet another new kit ... it is getting hard to keep them straight since so many are coming out all at once, but I am pleasantly surprised by this one. The colours are pretty, and for being a full coverage buxom Ruby is alot more sheer than it's counterparts. Overall ... a good kit ... and the clutch that comes with it is to die for!

I completely stole my dear sisboo's idea of lining with the Luminous Lashes mascara ... which was an awesome idea considering that those things never show up on me. It was a little stiff feeling, but not to the point that I even noticed it after a few minutes. I also used my latest UD 24/7 purchase ... Honey ... which is described as 24K Gold ... and they mean that description. Love it!


basic face routine
Ruby Radiance as blush; used Soft Sweep Face brush

MAC Paintpot in Bare Study over entire eye area; used large shadow brush (from brush set)
UD 24/7 eye pencil in Honey along lower lashline and lower waterline; blended slightly with Sephora #4 sponge applicator
Golden Ruby dry on browbone and around entire eye area; used Flathead shadow brush
Wild Ruby dry in crease, lining outer two thirds of lower lashline and on outer third of lid; used double ended Shaping Eye brush and Wet/Dry brush
Vintage Ruby dry on middle third of lid; used Wet/Dry brush
Golden Ruby dry on inner third of lid, wrapped around inner corner and along inner third of lower lashline, and swept up into crease and onto browbone; used Wet/Dry brush
Ruby Luminous Lashes mascara lined along top lashline only; used Eye Liner brush
Chanel Exceptionnel de Chanel mascara in Smoky Noir

Ruby Full Coverage Buxom lip polish
