New Limited-Edition Color, 100% Pure bareMinerals
Available only at Bare Escentuals Boutiques’, or online: http://www.bareescentuals.com .
Why did I purchase this particular shade of bareMinerals eyeshadow? This particular eyeshadow is a limited-edition called “Tenderheart,” and was created exclusively for the Alzheimer’s Association. That means that for every purchase of Tenderheart Eyecolor, Bare Escentuals’ will donate money to the Alzheimer’s Association. www.alz.org
My maternal grandmother suffered from Alzheimer’s for at least ten years. It’s difficult to determine exactly when she started to show symptoms before being diagnosed. Like all diseases, this was really heart wrenching for our family. While I have photos of her holding the first of my children born, I wish, but don’t believe, that she ever was able to put the connection together that it was her Great Granddaughter that she was holding in her arms.
Tenderheart is a beautiful color; the staff at the Boston area Bare Escentuals Boutique described it as being a mocha voilet shade. Here are various photos. Gorgeous color!
bareMinerals is preservative-free and non-irritating. The eyeshadow has an all-natural consistency which makes Tenderheart easy to apply and blend. I don’t have creasing and the color lasts all day long.
The texture of Tenderheart is Shimmer, and I used this tip to “Turn on the gleam:” “Channel your inner drama queen with a technique created by Bare Escentuals called ‘foiling.’ It’s as easy as applying your eyeshadow with a dampened brush, and it creates a lustrous, light-reflective glow to your eyes when layered over or under other shadows.”
This statement is from Bare Escentuals: “Please join Bare Escentuals and BE CARES in our efforts to support the Alzheimer’s Association. Alzheimer’s is a fatal disease that devastates families physically, emotionally and financially and impacts all generations, including children and caregivers. To get involved visit their website. Wear purple to show you care. September marks the Alzheimer’s Association inaugural World Alzheimer’s Month (WAM).”
To close, as Bare Escentuals writes:
“Life is much richer when you give back to others .”
To Bare Escentuals, I thank you for this year’s Tenderheart eyeshadow providing a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association!
