bareMinerals Eye Shadow
The perfect color.
Finally! A brown matte color that is just perfect. Shantung is a beautiful reddish brown color that is like blush for the eyelids. Very subtle and natural looking. Great for baby boomers. I just wish the colors were described. They are not as they look online.
I use this shade (nouveau) along with camp. I rarely stray from these colors. Less is more when it comes to eye shadow for me & these are perfect together. However, I have not been able to get the Camp shade on QVC anymore, so have had to purchase it elsewhere. Wish you would bring it back!!
QVC needs better description
I love bare minerals products. I have used the foundation and shadows for years. So the products themselves are great BUT QVC does NOT provide adequate/correct description of the eyeshadows. I'm looking for MATTE shadows, in other words NO shimmer, sparkle, glitter, etc. I've had this problem before on this site but caved in to try two shades since I was running low. So again I have to send back of course at my cost. Its just a guessing game on this site what you'll get if you want to try something new. I reordered my old standby that I know is MATTE but will be returning the other two. WIll not order anything from QVC unless its a color I've used before.
Love, love this shade. (nouveau) I use it as a base & on lid, then I use Camp in the corner & along lash line. perfect, not over done. PLEASE address the packaging. That lock/twist lid needs to go.
Pond is beautiful
I was looking for a shade of blue but could not find any so ordered the pond. It is a beautiful shade of pale ocean green that goes very well with my brown eyes.
Very happy with this unexpected purchase.
Why can't I find my favorite color anymore?
I've been using Bare Minerals matt eye shadow for quite a few years in the shade of DOVE.
I can no longer find this shade and am heart broken. Not only is DOVE no longer available there aren't any shades that come close to it.
It is a soft grayish color with a hint of lavender. Please, please bring Dove back.
I would not have tried this color, Myth, had I not read another reviewer's comments. I'm glad I did! This is now my new favorite eyeshadow color. So much prettier on than what shows on the computer screen. It's sort of a dusky bluish/grayish - think storm clouds - with a touch of lavender.
NOT THE COLOR SHOWN
I just received the shadow "camp". It is not at all the color pictured. It is more brown and has shimmer which makes it more like a BE glimmer or glimpse rather than a regular eye shadow. I was disappointed :(
Love the color. Very nudish. I love Bare Minerals in general. All of their products are wonderful. Been using them for over 10 years.
Nice color !
Got this in "Adventure". I'm in my 50's, so I'm done with bright eye shadows. This shade is very nice. By adding a little more, it gives a nice pop beyond a neutral look. Goes with everything. (I have very hazel eyes) Took off 1 star for the tiny pot.
Awesome Color !!!
I ordered the color Shantung. When ever I wear this color I get soooo many compliments. It"s very pretty. LOVE LOVE IT !!!!
To Sift or not to Sift
I have read most of the reviews of this product. I have never received a shadow without the sifter, however, if you don't like the mess--don't travel with BE products with sifters--and I have done all the shaking and banging on the counter I care to in order to get the product back under the sifter. I guess I would rather they were loose powders as opposed to taking the time and trouble with the banging method.
However, I like the product and will continue to purchase it. I finally labeled the top of each container (with a label maker) with the name and then the color I think applies to it. I have done the same with all of the products that don't have a locking sifter because I got tired of standing on my head to try to read the bottom or turning it over and having too much product in the top of the sifter.
I have even put a piece of scotch tape over the holes when traveling, however, when you take the tape off, you lose more product.
I have decided that using a paper towel under the containers and brushes, while applying the product, is the least messy way to go.
Four stars because of powders flying all over the place. If the packaging was different--5 stars.
