A LONG time ago I saw these reviewed on Temptalia and they received quite high honors from her. I was intrigued. I do not like Bare Escentuals Mineral Eye Shadows, but these are presented a little differently.
From the Sephora website:
What it is:
A high-intensity color eye shadow.
What it does:
This vibrantly colored shadow imparts a mega-watt sheen. The velvety-smooth formula glides on effortlessly for an extra creamy, opaque, foiled effect.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Synthetic Fragrances
– Synthetic Dyes
What else you need to know:
A convenient, quick-draw wand allows for easy, on-the-go application. Free of preservatives and chemical irritants. Ophthalmologist tested. Safe for contact lens wearers.
Size: 0.05 oz
(this is BE Bronzed with Illamasqua Glister Precision Ink)
What I like: It actually applies REALLY well with the given applicator. The color was smooth, and I didn’t have fading issues like with their normal Mineral Eye Shadows. While I wasn’t crazy about the color (even though it looks like it would be part of my beloved browns/neutrals color palette, I found this to be slightly brassy on me) I wouldn’t be opposed to buying in a different shade.
What I don’t like: The applicator is spring loaded, so when you unscrew it pops out. It doesn’t go flying, but I just don’t personally like that. Also, when you pull out the applicator, don’t be alarmed, it’s going to look like you’re missing about 25% of your product. It’s by weight, of course, but I don’t like to see things emptying. I’m weird like that lol
Bare Escentuals bare Minerals High Shine Eye Color retails for $16 and can be picked up at Sephora, Ulta and BareEscentuals.com. This is available in 8 colors.
