Caryl Baker Southwestern Beauty Summer 2013 Collection

Being from Alberta, I must admit I have a soft spot for MOST things country. So when I saw the ad from the Caryl Baker Visage Southwestern Beauty Collection, I could only think of one thing(as often happens) and one thing only:

The Caryl Baker Southwestern Beauty Collection was created with colourful hues and natural finishes that gives nods to prairie nights and country girls.

All I can say about this collection, is that IT’S PERFECT.

Shades Energy, Vitality, Balance

Caryl Baker Eyeshadows are one of my FAVOURITE formulas-they are soft, pigmented, and practically blend by themselves. These three shades Energy-an antiqued gold, Vitality-a bright copper, and Balance- a shimmery teal are limited edition shades and retail for $18 CDN each(although if you are a Caryl Baker Beauty Club member they’re only $16.20 CDN). They just GLOW and are so pretty! MUST HAVES I say!

Caryl Baker Earthy Sun-Baked Bronze

The New Caryl Baker Earthy Sun-Baked Bronze(on special for $23.60 CDN right now) is moulded and baked on a terra cotta tile and is soft and smooth. It has a bit of glitter in it, but nothing overpowering at all and I can’t really see any on my face when I’m wearing it.

Swatchy Time!

City Slickers Lip Gloss in Calm, Earthy Bronze, Eyeshadows in Balance, Vitality, and Energy

The Earthy Bronzer scared me a bit when I swatched it because I thought it would be too orange for my skin tone, but I was wrong! I’m often wrong though, so no surprise there haha! It gives a really natural, sun-kissed look to the face. LOVE it.

The City Slickers Lip Gloss in Calm($19.50 CDN) is infused with argan oil and really moisturizes lips. Calm is a pretty nude with some sparkles and I swear my lips look fuller when wearing it! There are 2 other limited edition shades available in Carefree( a pink) and Comfy(coral) as well and both look just as gorgeous!

See what I mean? GLOWING. Like a sunset on the prairies!

Since I don’t have a cowboy hat, I put on my best plaid shirt for y’all: Yeehaw!

It’s FRIDAY. Finally! I don’t know about you, but this week just seemed to drag on and on and on...I think it’s because I’ve been sick, and unable to get back to my routine-especially exercising! I feel like a SLUG. A BIG SLUG that ate too many churros at Disneyland last week. I think today I can finally breathe without coughing a lung out, so I’m going to try to get back on the treadmill.

How was your week? Any fun plans for the weekend?

*products sent by PR for review, thoughts and cowboy hat lemmings are my own thank you!

  • OOO that trio! Pretty pretty shades! Love how they look on you! Such a nice, summery collection!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Sunny! Such great quality!

  • That eye look is gorgeous GORGEOUS, especially with the teal on the bottom like that. Your eyes pop! I’m looking for a new teal shadow…I want a bright one with a great texture. So pretty!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks! I just LOVE their makeup. It’s such great quality!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    ME TOO to tell you the truth. I hardly EVER get dressed up and am ALWAYS in jeans.
    Thanks! LOVE me a good plaid shirt haha!

  • Telle D

    *POW* Tracy! your EOTD is WICKED LOVELY! πŸ˜€ If there was a Caryl Baker here, i’d be hightailing it for that collection!!! πŸ˜€ Hope you feel better soon and are able to get moving so as to not feel like a slug!! Long weeks suck prairie oysters (just to continue with the southwestern theme). My week was good; weekend plans- get some more house organizing done (the most important things, *cough cough* my makeup are out of the way, so next is the basement), some SDM 20x shopping (i spotted some vasanti singles and duos on clearance! YAY!), and hopefully some good decent walks through ctown! Thanks for asking! How about you, besides hoping back to the treadmill, once it is confirm all lungs are fastened in and not going anywhere when coughing! πŸ˜‰

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Awww thanks Telle! Praire Oysters HAHAHAHA you rock.
      I need to organize my makeup AGAIN. Everything is all over the place here and I HATE that. IS there 20X the points this weekend? COOL I need to get some eye makeup remover!
      I was going to workout today but UGGGH so TIRED today. I was woken up REALLY EARLY by UPS today. Not good.

      • telle

        Did UPS bring you some goodies at least? (:D
        Makeup organizing!! Ikea time?? I just got mine reorganized-so much work but i do love it bc it means i get to play with all the pretty things and do some rediscovery too! Yes 20X! What remover do you consistently gravitate for? I want to try Smashbox’s new remover! πŸ™‚
        Hope tonight is restful so you feel back to yourself and not tired!

      • TracyBeautyReflections

        Hahaha yes they did! I need to organize my blog “work” space better. I want to make a work area in my computer room, so that’s my project for the next while.
        Thanks for letting me know! Totally going to go to Shoppers tomorrow-I need to restock my points! πŸ™‚ I just use the Neutrogena makeup remover -it works for me! Also want to get some Lise Watier Brush Cleaner too-I love that stuff-cleans brushes in between and dries FAST.

  • Gaelle

    That little eyeshadow palette is so pretty. And you look pretty hot for a slug!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL hahaha. Trust me. This slug has gotten sluggier!

  • Memoiselle

    oOoh that lipgloss looks pretty! I think the gloss will help to make my lip looks more pouty πŸ˜‰

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I agree!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Haha maybe I will! I just feel so unorganized at the moment and that’s because I don’t have a proper work station I think.

  • So presh and beautful! I love you in your flannel shirt! πŸ™‚

  • This is a gorgeous set and all the colour look stunning on you. I thought that bronzer was going to be way too dark for you, but it looks lovely.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Olgie! Me too, but it actually works!

  • Liz

    Eeeeee, you look so pretty! I agree, you definitely need a cowboy hat. πŸ™‚

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks hahaha! I do!

  • I love your look using the products! I wish there was a CB location in PEI!
