    I love this! I will never go without Pure Radiance AGAIN!! Makes my skin look like a million bucks! The shadows are so rich I just love them. This was worth every penny.

    Anybody else got theirs???

    I received mine also. The colors are great :thumbsup2 . I also bought the Bare/Rose Radiance at the same time and absolutely :lovestruc them. I have been using the Clear Radiance since the beginning and it has always been one of my favorite items.

    Thanks for posting this. I have been thinking about the Peacock collection and was waiting to hear how my friend liked hers before purchasing.

    I love pure radiance too :goodvibes

    I have gone around and around about getting the Peacock collection and decided not to. You guys are making me change my mind!!

    So tell me more about Pure Radiance. How is it different from the Clear?

    I have never used clear radiance but the Pure Radiance just gives me a fantastic "glow" not a greasy wet look.... just well, RADIANT! :thumbsup2

    What is Pure Radiance? Is that like a primer?

    (I only use BE foundation and warmth but would like to learn more~!)

    It's an "all over" face color. I am going to put some on in a bit for the morning and then do all my make up shortly before dinner.

    I saw this in todays Ulta flier.. it looked interesting.

    I've got blond/brown hair/darker eyebrows, with blue green eyes... would the peacock collection be too dark?

    Just wondering.

    You are blonder than I am-- (I'm inbetween coloring time!) and it does look interesting.

    I may consider it.

    bambi buxom lips lip gloss

    This is about 90% the QVC TSV Peacock collection. The Buxom lips is a differeny shade and the Peacock bag is not included.

    The Ulta ad showed a peacock feather type thing behind it. I looked at the peacock collection and I thought only the lip gloss was different.

    Is this a good starter kit?

    I also found this:

    Bare Escentuals starter kit:
    3 pc set

    Hot Spot Glimpse
    Sheer violet lip gloss
    Blending brush

    $9.99

    Last question: I promise!

    Is $58 a good deal? I don't spend that much on makeup--so was wondering if I should spurlge (bday is in a few days!)

    Thanks for posting this! I haven't taken the plunge, and missed out on the bag, but think I will go for it. I was a bit hesitant because I have dark blonde hair and green eyes. Haven't tried pure radiance yet - is it in place of, or in addition to, your normal BE foundation?

    It's not to replace anything. I but it on last, over my mineral veil.

    Foundation
    blush and any eye color
    mineral veil
    radiance

    The individual piece price total of the kit is over $120. This stuff will last you a lot longer than you may think.


    Ask all the questions you want. We all went through this at one time or another.

    The Peacock Collection doesn't have the Bali Glimpse either.

    I got the PC last week and I love it too.

    The mascara is GREAT, and I love the new feather mineral veil.
    I still like the clear radiance better than this pure radiance.
    I have green eyes so the peacock glimse if I put just a little bit on really brings out my eyes without bringing attention to the lids. It's kind of a nude green color if it goes on lightly, which I love.

    I think it was worth the money. I also love the well rested under my eyes, looks like Im well rested! I've been using this for a year and I can see a difference when I don't use it. I don't think I'll ever be able to be without well rested again. It's my favorite BE product!
