THE PRODUCT: I have recently been buying some products from the bareMinerals range after being so impressed with some of their other products. This eye shadow set is one of the products I have purchased and have been using it regularly every since. The eye shadow contains 4 different which are long-lasting and have an ultra-smooth, silky texture for easy application. This also means the colours can be blended as well to create different looks. I went for this particular set as I find that shades of brown bring out the blue colour of my eyes a lot more. The 4 colours in the set include Serendipitious which is the lightest colour and is matte looking. Magnetism is another light shade but has more of a pearlescent look to it. Fate is quite a dark shade and again this is slightly shimmery. Apropos is a dark shade of brown with micro silver bits of glitter in it to give it some sparkle. The set does come with it's own double ended applicator.
PRICE/AVAILABILITY: I purchased this from the bareMinerals counter in my local Boots store for £29, but you can also purchase it from the bareMinerals website as well.
USING THE PRODUCT: I normally apply a lid primer before using any eye shadow but I have to admit that lately when using this product I have been applying it straight to my eyelids. The eye shadows are soft so you don't need to press the applicator too hard onto the colours in order to get a good amount on the applicator. I blew the applicator carefully to get rid of any loose powder as I didn't want this dropping down to beneath the eye area ruining the rest of my make-up I had already applied. The eye shadow was lovely and easy to apply and went onto my eye lids very smoothly. I like that you can apply as little or as much of the eye shadow as you like to build up the colour. I finished the look off with a couple of coats of black mascara. The eye shadow looked great and I found it to be long lasting and lasted through-out the whole day without needing to re-apply it. The product was really kind to my eyes without causing any irritation.
OVERALL OPINION: I have already used two of the eye shadows and my favourite shade is Magnetism which is one of the lighter browns. This colour really makes the blue in my eyes stand out and it's a little more subtle than the really dark shades which I tend to use for nights out rather than for the day. The eye shadow is really easy to use and it blends well with the other colours as well to create different looks. The eye shadow is rather pricey but it's really good quality and the product is a luxury to use. I'm really glad I purchased this set.
