I bought this product in "the show stopper" the thing that really made me interested in this product is the shine. The color in showstopper is so pretty! There is a blue then a brownish-purpleish color that shines and changes by the angle. It's absolutely beautiful and I love it! I have a few other colors of this product. I am VERY happy with these new palettes, I like them better than the loose powder.
I couldn't believe how well these shadows stayed. They are quite pigmented and didn't even crease on me. Unfortunately the duo I got was not really my style so I passed it to a friend who it fit like a glove! I'll definitely look into shades better suited for myself.
Thank you bare escentuals!
I have the palette shown above, Muse. I was wary of the color because my skin is rarer, but the pink reads beautifully on my alone. I especially like the darker shade either in my crease, or as a liner. I was excited when bare escentuals came out with these palettes. The shadows are so unbelievably soft, and they done ever crease. The pigment is fantastic, and I can't wait to try other shades.
The second I own is a more for a natural look. It has a gold tone for one share, and a deep brown for the other. I love the high shine of te lighter shade. It made my entire eye area brighter, and I don't have to worry about the color smudging or creasing. I do mean this when I say a little goes a long way, because these shades are very pigmented. I dislike the applicator because I feel it tugged on my eyelid too much, so I just swipe a clean index finger into the colors. It really doesn't take much to get the effect you want. Again, I can't say enough about these products, so I recommend this to those who want to test out the brand, or who are just looking for a fresh new product. These cosmetics are natural, and really do improve your skin over time.
Beautiful shade and wears great
I bought The Scenic Route after seeing the green shade on the model in their commercial. I really adored the green because it was a dark green, but had goldtones in it as well and I thought it was a unique eyeshadow shade, one that I hadn't seen before. I had never tried Bare Escentuals before, but I hadn't seen a green eyeshadow like so I had to get it. It looks like a powder, but it went on smooth like a cream. It has great pigment, only had to put on one layer and it lasted all day with no fallout. I buy drugstore, moderate price, and some high end products, but their new 2.0 Ready eyeshadow is my favorite so far.
Not what you would expect from "Bare"
I purchased The Truth quad which is the most neutral quad. I was hesitate at first because it looked like so much that I already owe. Let me tell you I have Mac, Urban Decay, drugstore brands, Smashbox etc. I have reached for this more than anything! I am not a pro when it comes to makeup and I have recieved more compliment on the look I put together with the quad than anything else. That's says a lot about these shadows. They blend well, very little fall out considering they are shimmery, this quad is great for everyday wear.
I've bought 3 duos;
The Top Shelf
The Scenic Route
& The Flashback
Each are AMAZING!!!! I want them all..... ;)
The color & pigmentation is rich, the eyeshadows feel soft & velvety, they go on beautifully and stay well... great buy.
