Bare Escentuals Crown Jewels "Mother of all Gems"

I heard rumors that Target had the Crown Jewels kit from Bare Escentuals, but I didn't believe it until I saw it with my own eyes - $12.48!!!  Seriously!

As you can see in the picture above, this kit comes with four colors (one eyeliner, two shadows and an all over radiance) as well as three brushes and a lipgloss.  The eyeliner is Onyx, which is a matte blackest-black.  The two shadows are Opal, which is a beautiful glimmer with a little iridescence, and True Gold which is the most beautiful sparkly gold shadow I know.  There is nothing brassy about this color - it is truly crushed gold.  Swatches of these colors are below. 

Something I love about these BE sets are all the great brushes.  This comes with an angled face brush, a dual ended precision eye.

Below are the swatches - from right to left it is Onyx, Clear Radiance, Opal and True Gold.  Beautiful!!
