Bare minerals loose pigment eyeshadows are my favorite shadows to use. The color pay off is excellent, you can use a little for a subtle look or built it up for a more glamorous look. I have had my first of their shadows for 5 years, they last forever. The only negative thing I can say about it is there is some fall out. Besides that I would recommend these shadows to everyone.

I am not a fan of this brand, at least not the foundations, the coverage for me sucked but like the eyeshadows I bought. The starter kit shades are good and I got some neutral shades that I could wear to work. It worked best for me with a primer and and layering. If you are really into the whole mineral thing then I would definitely suggest this but it just was not for me.

Hi ! Wel this is a great eyeshadow. It seems brown (well to me) but it comes of more purple. I don't know why. Also, this eyeshadow does crease. I would recommend, but I think that the price is too high for an eyeshadow that really doesn't stay and is not very pigmented.

Love

I love the Bare Minerals eyeshadow. Not only does it have shimmer but it really makes my eyes pop. It does not take a lot to put on. You can make it as dark or light as you want.

Great Loose Shadow

I never thought I would enjoy using a loose shadow. For me, it seemed far too messy and too much work. These little guys proved me wrong. For one, they are amazingly pigmented and they are surprisingly easy to work with. They will last me FOREVER because you barely need any to get a great amount of color. Obviously, because they are loose (if you use them dry) there will be some fallout but all you have to do to correct that is wet the brush first.

Highly Pigmented Fun Colors

BE makes great shadows that are highly pigmented and are not at all chalky. You have to have a delicate hand with them because they are loose powder and do have fall out when applying. Make sure you remember the BE cardinal rules of SWIRL and TAP before applying. I usually foil my colors for ease of application.

These are great for highlighting and all over neutral colors. I found their heavily pigmented ones rather difficult to control when attempting a smokey eye. Their more glittery colors don't irritate my sensitive skin and is easy to take off. It's a shame that they don't have a pressed powder line.

try picking up a lot of the powder up with your dry shadow brush, not nessicarily as much as it can hold but a good bit, and with the tip of your brush lightly tap the brush on the inside of the lid until all visible powder is off the brush then swirl in the powder in the lid and repeat the last two steps and test the color on your hand or arm or wherever. If you want the less pigmented colors to be bolder try wetting a paper towel & squeeze as much water out of the papertowel as you humanly can and loosely wrap your brush in the paper towel!!!

I really hope this helps!!! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!!!!!!

Bare Escentuals eyeshadows come in a very pretty wide range of colors. As far as finishes go, almost all of the shadows are very frosty with a few mattes thrown in. If you like eyeshadows with high shimmer, these are perfect for you! I find that I get better color payoff and lasting power when I use these wet, and dry they same a little sheer. They also definitely need a sticky base and although I normally prefer Urban Decay Primer Potion, I do highly recommend getting the Bare Escentuals Prime Time Eye Primer if you plan on using a lot of these shadows. If not, a thin layer of any other sticky base (NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow pencils, etc) over your UDPP should be fine.
