Ulta recently had flash sale – 50% of BareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow quads and duos – and I purchased a quad that I had my eye on, The Rare Find. I’ve heard only positive things about the BareMinerals Ready eyeshadows, and now I can see why – they are extremely pigmented, buttery, and smooth.
Both sets of swatches above are done without any primer – I used sponge tip applicators to apply to my arm, as I do all my swatches. The pigmentation is incredible, and the finish is beautiful. Furthermore, the matte shadows perform just as beautifully as the shimmers. I am totally in love with these eyshadows now, and I want more!
The only thing I don’t love is the packaging; it’s the same type of rubberized material as NARS packaging, and (from experience), it doesn’t stay looking nice very long. I do like how the back of the compact is designed, with names for the shadows – this would also make it easier to tell compacts apart at a glance if you had several.
