Pretty Amazing Lip Color & The Duchess

Pretty Amazing Lip Color is brand new from bareMinerals, and comes in eight luxurious shades.  Each lip color comes with a precision applicator that allows you to accentuate every curve of your lips. The shades are very bold and remind me of a creamy lipstain with some serious shine. With eight colors there is definitely one in the collection for everyone. Not to mention you'll be able to keep up with all the lasted color trends... Pretty Amazing.

Here is a peak at my three favorites

Perfect for a summertime pop of pink!

Nude lips are definitely a huge trend right now so this lip color will not disappoint and you will definitely receive many comments on your gorgeous lip shade. 
 {Charisma}
This is my absolute favorite hue! It's definitely Pretty Amazing and I currently have one in my handbag as well as my vanity!
 If you are a lipgloss or lipstick addict I definitely suggest you get some or all of these shades. The colors are brilliant and vibrant!

What colors do you like in the Pretty Amazing Collection? 
Do you own any of these shades?

It's been far too long since I posted about the duchess, so I figured I would update with some of my favorite outfits that Kate has worn lately.


 Are you still Kate obsessed or has that ship sailed?

  3. I always have to wear very, very, light colors almost nude on my lips, cuz they are very small and look silly with dark, bold, bright, colors. So im jealous. Cause I am totally digging the charisma one!

  6. OMGosh Kate is so gorgeous and chic! I love her dresses. I want to own ALL of them.

    I love a great lip stain or gloss. I feel washed out if I don't pay attention to my lips :)

  7. I'm such a lipgloss junkie! If these are longstanding they may have to be added to my collections! The colors are gorgeous.

  11. Youw ould think i collect lip gloss if you looked in my purse. I have at least 15 different shades with me all the time. The idea of a gloss lip stain is brilliant. I have never tried bareMinerals before but will now.

  15. Hi Pretty. I saw the picture of you wearing the Moxie a couple post back and it looked gorgeous on your lips. I am loving the idea of the gloss lipstain. One of the girls I work with and I will be headed to the Boutique after work today. I think between the both of us we will have the whole collection.

  16. I dont know about others but I am a LOOK AT ME kind of red girl. I think Bravado and Strength will be coming home with me next time I am at Sephora. I know a lot of people cannot pull the red look off but I love it.

  17. Hi Erica. Hope you are having a fab day! I love that you are a pink girl and stick to your pink roots LOL. Could I send you a picture and you let me know what pink you think would look best on me.

    Thanks!

    PS LOVE KATE

  18. So my roommate readers your blog like its a religion. On it daily to see what you have posted. She makes a lot of the recipes you put up, copies your meals and is constantly buying nail polish after seeing it here. This morning at 9:30am she swung open my door to yell "erica just posted lipgloss and its amazing want to go to the mall" well as a result I bought five different colors: fearless, freewill, moxie, charisma and ambition while she bought the ENTIRE collection as well as two Charisma and Moxie. Hooked much! lol

    Hi Darling. First I love kate and definitely wish I was that skinny... any one know how to be that skinny and still eat? Second after reading your post about the BE skincare I definitely went out and bought the breakout treatment and face wash for my Clarisonic and you were right it really made a huge difference being used in my Clarisonic. I am a lipstick kind of girl but I am thinking I love these. Not to mention the precision brush why doesnt everyone else do this?

    kisses!

  21. I never tried baremineral products until I won your giveaway and fell in love with the products. They are so nice at the store and getting the makeunder was so neat. I think a trip to the boutique is a must I want to get strength and ambition. I like the bold colors!

  22. Have you seen the hats at the royal ascot? I absolutely love them. I could totally see you with one of those massive ones on! I was so excited to meet you yesterday - I felt weird coming up to you while you were getting groceries but I am glad I did you are so nice!!! Were you wearing one of these colors yesterday? Your lips were a pretty amazing pink shade hehe
