New Bare Minerals READY products for Winter/Holiday 2013

I am a huge fan of the Bare Minerals/Escentuals READY products, because I love pressed makeup, yet I want only natural ingredients.
Just thought I would post about the items I am most excited about for this winter/holiday season.
Right now is their preview event(until the 14th), so these items are for sale now, and then will only be available again in November.
This READY Convertible Eyeshadow Palette looks pretty cool:
It is only $48, and considering it has 12 shadows that is a great deal!
I am addicted to their Limited Edition 8 pan palettes, which typically are $40.
Speaking of which, I do hope they have one of the 8 pan palettes this year, so far I have not seen or heard anything.

There is also this pressed Illuminating Mineral Veil, anything that promises to illuminate catches my attention:

And there is a HUGE palette called the Artistry Palette that is only in the UK right now.
I have no idea if and when this is coming to the US, but wow it looks amazing!
I do wonder how much it will cost though, if I translate the price I see right now on their UK site into dollar it equals $360!

Silk Naturals Eye Shadow Haul/Swatches

Couldn't help myself and placed 2 orders in a row :) Love Silk Naturals!
I got lots and lots of shadows! Haven't worn most of them yet, but I did wear Dark Arts the other day and what a lovely crease color that one is! Also, Magpie is so pretty as is Fairy Dust, I love iridescent/duo-chrome shades and that's what many of these are. Alibi is really interesting because it has a tiny bit of aqua iridescence to it. I am currently obsessed with purples so I think I am really going to enjoy Breathe and Scream. Most of these shadows are not too shimmery, I like very fine shimmer, or pearl, and that is what most of these are. Glory and Duct Tape are the most shimmy ones of the bunch in terms of the size of shimmer they have, so those are probably my least favorite. Vineyard is pretty but it might have too much red to it, not sure I can pull it off. U R Cute and Sari are just ok, but Idolize and Serene look amazing! Serene has a very low sheen finish, like suede, and such cool golden sheen to it. Really excited for Momentum, and Posse, love colors like that, super pretty golden greens!
EDIT: bought some more shadows from an online friend, so added even more swatches!
