Bare Minerals Cool As Ice Holiday Gloss Set (Swatched!)

Bare Minerals Cool As Ice ($25/.07 oz’s each)

Remember I was telling you about my holiday gloss obsession? Well the sets from BE this year started it all. I posted swatches on the Hot To Trot Holiday Gloss Set last month. I have been wearing those glosses out. Now it’s time for Cool As Ice the other holiday set. The colors in this set are so pretty and the tingle in Moxie glosses is addictive! I think this is one of the best deals out there at $25 for a set of six decent size glosses. Lets take a look at the colors!

Warning-I put these colors on one after the other (removing each shade between pics) for this post so forgive any stray glitter on my face or if I went outside my lip line a bit!









Hot Ticket (electric pink)









Dare Devil (sparkling blackberry)









Fashionably Late (sparkling opal)









Socialite (sparkling pink)









Gutsy (fuchsia berry)








Rebel (pink mauve)

I truly love the shine and moisture in Moxie’s! They have a nice tingle and just look classy. This is a great color line up. I think the biggest surprise to me was Fashionably Late. What a beautiful sparkle and the wear is fantastic. I had a bad experience with a very similar gloss color from Mac last year so I was wary. But this formulation is way better. The color stays put and the shimmer doesn’t break up or get stuck in the corners of your lips. I usually touch these up after a few hours. After meals mostly.

I already did a post on Dare Devil (posted here) back in July so I’m going to pass this mini gloss to a friend. I love how glossy and vampy Dare Devil is! And the most wearable color in the set is Rebel. It’s the perfect pink and now I see why so many people have asked me if I’ve tried it. Now that I have it I want a full size one. Such a pretty color for everyday use.

This limited edition set is available at Ulta, Nordstrom, and the Bare Escentuals website. Pick it up before its gone!

    The greatest idea for a special gift for yourself and someone obsessed with cosmetics too – such a big set could be splitted.
    From the other side, I’m so obsessed with the lip colors (glosses, lipsticks and so on) that I may treat it like a good present for myself alone!)))
    Btw, all those colours look so fruity and shmexy on your lips)
