Swatch Photos of new February colors

Per customer request, just some swatches of recently released colors! First up is the new Shimmer Blushes/Glows, Bemused & Dainty : I applied these rather "thickly" just so you can see the color; they are, of course, much more flattering when applied with a stipple brush as a glow. Bemused is very brightening to sallow skin although I personally think it would look best on fair neutral tones and for those of you ladies who may be pinker. Dainty is a great all over glow/highlighter and you can see how it complements my Grace 4.0 skintone. Next up are the Limited Edition Metallics : This is probably one of the first swatch photos I've taken that I think actually shows what they really look like! Those flecks of deep gold are what make these colors most unique and interesting! And finally, the Limited Edition Winter 2009 set : (Click on photo for a larger view) I'm sad to report that these did wash out the depth of the colors a little as the beauty of al

Lots of new stuff: LE e/s, two Shimmer Blushes, Smoothing Powder, & Powder Brushes!

Where do I even start??? about the new LE Limited Edition eyeshadows! I am extremely cold-natured so I was inspired formulating this collection by the cool weather. (LOL, I know some of you are laughing since I live in Mississippi where the weather is NOWHERE near as cold as the Northern states but I somehow freeze all the same!!!) I've gotten to love "smokey eye" looks and since I already have the basic colors in my line to do typical smokey eyes (Fearless, Mysterious, Tenacious, Devoted, etc.) I wanted a few brighter shades that ran a little on the cool-toned side for some more unique looks. I think it was Dao of My Makeup Blog who suggested to me a while back to formulate a blue version of Fearless so I've been to work coming up with that along with some colors to mix and match with them. Check them out here in the LE Section ! Besides the special deal on the entire set like I usually do, I thought it wise to add a pick-your-own " Trio Eyecolor

A Valentine's Day poem & thoughts on true beauty

In honor of Valentine’s Day and to put us in a romantic mood and to continue in the theme of adorned with Grace Minerals’ “defining true beauty” I’d like to share a poem that seems to describe eloquently one who is truly “adorned with grace”: She Walks in Beauty by Lord Byron She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that's best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes: Thus mellow'd to that tender light Which heaven to gaudy day denies. One shade the more, one ray the less, Had half impair'd the nameless grace Which waves in every raven tress, Or softly lightens o'er her face; Where thoughts serenely sweet express How pure, how dear their dwelling place. And on that cheek, and o'er that brow, So soft, so calm, yet eloquent, The smiles that win, the tints that glow, But tell of days in goodness spent, A mind at peace with all below, A heart whose love is innocent! This poem has always been somewhat familiar to me; I

Feb. 14: Last day for Limted Edition colors & Premium Face Brush Set

Happy Monday, Everyone! I have been busy formulating some new Limited Edition colors (Winter 2009 Collection, LE Metallic colors) which will be available Feb. 15. make room for these new LE's, the colors you've seen on Clearance in our "Limited Edition" section will be gone. In fact, I believe EVERYTHING on that page, including the Valentine's Day Custom Kit will no longer be available; Feb. 14 (Valentine's Day) will be the last day they are up! Take advantage of this deal as colors like Gallant, Philanthropic, & Jovial will be gone for good once they are sold out. Also note that these items may be gone sooner should they sell out as there are a couple of colors whose full-sizes are almost gone. FYI, if I have sample baggies leftover after I have discontinued them, you *might* see them again in a $1.99 Clearance Baggie Sampler like I did earlier last month but it will be in a pre-sealed "mystery grab bag" with a mix of various colors fr
