Builds Volume Fast....But Is Not Smudgefree
Rating
4 out of 5
4 out of 5
I received a sample of this mascara and there is a lot I love about it....very unique brush that creates volume and length quickly. The intensity of the color stays true all day and it didn't flake or irritate my eyes. The only thing I didn't love is that it smudged under my lower lash line throughout the day but that is a very common occurrence for me with most mascaras. If you don't have super long lower lashes, you might not experience this. Also, it does require eye makeup remover to take it off completely....not a negative for me but something to keep in mind.

Complete Review, Swatches & Sample Eye Looks
Rating
4 out of 5
4 out of 5
Phrases Chosen: blendable, great pigment
Upon first glance, the colors seem pretty neutral but when swatched, several have very different color casts, therefore giving this palette great versatility.
Favorite Colors: VIP, Elitist and Carte Blanche
Other Things I Love: The bareMinerals Ready shadows are a wonderful, smooth, creamy formula; highly pigmented and with a primer underneath, the color stays true all day.
Some Not So Great Things: There aren't any completely matte shades in the palette....VIP and Carte Blanche are close but both still have a little shimmer or sparkle. Also, Connisseur is a tough color for me to pull off on it's own and is my least favorite shadow in this palette. However, I challenged myself to use it in an unexpected way...see how that turned out in Sample Look 3! By using a bright fuchsia cream shadow as a base, it turned connoisseur into a beautiful color!
Summary: I think this is a really great, neutral palette to own. It's super compact, making it great for travel. And, at just $25, you are getting some great, quality shadows at a great price! While I can't say that I'm noticing any reduction in lines or wrinkles due to use of these shadows, it is always reassuring to know that when I'm wearing these shadows or any of the other bareMinerals products, I'm wearing makeup that is good for my skin.

Phrases Chosen: long-wearing, cooling sensation
Love the Buxom Lip Polish! It gives your lips a wonderful tingling sensation and has a bit of stickiness (just the right amount, of course) so it doesn't just slide right off your lips. I have quite the collection of Buxoms but Sugar is one of my favorites. It's the perfect "nude" color to go with everything. There are few colors that I use up and purchase again but Sugar will be one of them!

Is this a good palette for eyeshadow beginners?
I am new to the eyeshadow world and I'm not super great yet at blending or putting looks together. Is this a good palette to start out with - and how goof proof is it?
This would be a great palette for all eyeshadow levels....beginner to pro. Because most of the colors are shimmery, they are really easy to blend. The only color I found to be a bit difficult to put into a "look" was "Connoisseur". Otherwise the rest work pretty well together. The black shadow, "VIP" is a great one to smudge along the lash line for your liner, making lining your eyes pretty goof proof too :-) Attached are a couple of looks I did with this palette. I've listed the eyeshadow names in the caption below each picture. Hope this is helpful!

Do these shadows have a pearlization in them or are they matte?
Being 57, I find that matte shadows look better on me. Are the shadows in this kit pearlized or luminized? or are they matte? I also would like to see more reviews from women in their 50's or 60's who use Bare Escentual products. I have used them since the first show on QVC, as do my sisters and nieces now and we love the products. I just would like to see more reviews from women in my age group. Again, we love, love, love the products. I just prefer NOT to use any products with a pearlized look...in the evening sometimes I will use something luminized but for my day look, I ALWAYS choose a matte finish which is why I have questions about this product. Thanks for any responses!
None of the shadows in this palette are completely matte. The black shadow, "VIP" only has a very tiny amount of gold flecks and "Carte Blanche" is just slightly shimmery. All the rest have quite a bit of shimmer. They are pretty colors but probably more shimmer and sparkle than you want :-) See the attached picture of swatches I did on my skin. Hope that helps!
