bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 4.0 The Wild Thing Limited Edition.

Here is the second item the super lovely people at Look Fantastic sent me. I've not yet tried a bareMinerals product so receiving this was super exciting! 

In the shade where the shimmer is less visable.
Top - Sesational and Icon, Bottom - Elitist - Controversy

Isn't this a lovely quad of eyeshadows?  I thought I better start of with the websites description..

'These cutting-edge rejuvenating sea minerals take shape in a sexy unprecedented new solid eyeshadow. There they are all lovely and lustrous just sitting there nonchalantly as if they weren't the new big shot on the block. Flaunting vivid, creamy bold colour, these implausibly gorgeous shades are pure allure. Better yet, this is colour with a cause. bareMinerals' minerals-turned-eyeshadows boast skin-revitalising benefits.

Powered by the bareMinerals proprietary SeaNutritive Mineral™ Complex, bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow delivers a softer, smoother, revitalised eye area.

bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow is clinically proven to:

  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Decrease the appearance of puffiness on the upper eyelids.
  • Help boost moisture levels in skin by 81% for smoother, more revitalised eyes'

What I say..

Sensational - An iridescent white powder with green shimmer.

Icon - An olive green with a sliver shimmer

Elitist -  A light mocha brown base with silver shimmer

Sensational - A mix between a Royal blue and Navy blue with a very subtle light blue shimmer.

I've never used anything from bareMinerals before but if these eyeshadows are anything to go by I gather its a really nice brand, in the bottom two photos I have created a  look using all 4 colours, bare in mind I'm not a make-up artist or ever trained as one so the blending is probably not as good as it should be, but I'm going to try and improve! I used Icon on most of my lid then Controversy on the end blended down towards the lower lash line, I also used Elitist to do the rest of the lower lash line, Then with Sensational I just blended the top half towards my brown bone. Let me know what you think of it?
