bareMinerals Eye Shadow
nice but not what I expected
The Eye shadow is great, but it has shimmer. I had blush years ago and by the description I was expecting matte color-which is what I was looking for.
Not enough brown eye shadows!
This color Java is too dark for an eye shadow. It is a charcoal brown. I really wish QVC or bareMinerals would describe the colors. It did not look that dark online. However there is an up side here. Since I have found that brow colors are no longer carried, I tried the Java, and thankfully, it is very good for brows. QVC used to carry more bareMinerals brown eye shodows. They had a brown color called Cashmere I was very fond of. Please carry more browns!
Buildable & Wonderful
Love BE's 'LOOSE' eyeshadows. They are builable, which you can get many different looks & shades out of one pod of eyeshadow. Some you can use as blush. Some you can add to your lip gloss so your lips, blush & eyes all have the same color 'hue'....And this little jar last FOREVER. I gave it a 5 star because it is a wonderful product. But I do have a complaint. Since the compact eyeshadows have been introduced the selection on loose colors have deminished. What's up with that. There are many of us who were born using BE products. I'm 58, have used BE for years. When you find something that works well for you, then you don't adapt to changes well. I'm just tired of spending money to experiment on all the new stuff. I've spent a fortune to find this eyeshadow. Please bring back all the old colors, less glimmer for us older generation folks. I personally will not use an eyeshadow if its not matt. There are plenty of us 'ol timer BE users' still faithful to the line. We need more colors & preferably MATT.
Eye Shadow Colors similar to Brow Powder Colors?
Since bareMinerals seems to be discontinuing their Brow Powder I've seen some other sites suggest using eye shadow for the brows, but what colors compare to the Brow Powder colors? I need something comparable to the Brow Powder Dark Blonde/Medium Brunette color.
LOVE THIS EYESHADOW
I have been buying this eye shadow for a long time. I love all the colors. Bought two this time. Keep them coming Leslie. I love all her products.
The Bare Minerals eyeshadow in Pebble matte finish stays on all day and doesn't crease, no matter the weather or activity. It's very difficult to find a medium taupe color in matte finish. This is the only one I use. It's perfect.
I have been using Bare Minerals makeup for over fifteen years and love it- it has solved
many of my problems with other makeup brands and I believe the quality of my skin has improved. Being an older gal whose eye lids are wrinkled, I was really pleased with the soft focus realize color and was coming back for more as I have run out. To my dismay, QVC no longer carries it- so I will have to order directly from Bare Minerals as it is still being carried there! It's a shame us older gals have to move on as the
regular inventory of this as well as other names carried by QVC have too much sparkle which is very unflattering as one ages!
Best Shadows Ever
I love the bareMinerals eye shadows, especially the color Demure! They are the only shadows that do not dry my eyelids out and irritate them. They are excellent!
Bare Minerals Eye Shadow
I like the product in general, if you can see it in person re color. However, the colors online appear much deeper than the actual colors are when you receive the product. In no way, does the color online resemble what you receive. The skyline appears almost like a black online and in person it is a blue, but when applied much like gray. The plum is so light I sent it back. Other than that, I like the product. It is better to purchase this product when you see it demonstrated live and see the actual colors. Otherwise you may be disappointed. I sent the plum back and kept skyline although I would never have purchased it, had I known the actual color it is. I must add customer service worked with me and when the rep viewed it she could not tell the real colors at all as well.
had previously used coffee bean which was fabulous. This very rich brown had
too much red in it. couldnt find coffee bean on your list. wish you could bring it back.
I would recomment Coffee bean and also joyous jennifer blush
Best Color EVER
I just got the "rich brown" shadow and I'm in love with this color. For those of you who, like me, have skin with a lot of yellow in it some browns are too orange. This has a hint of purple and really looks great against my skin. I use a very light application for day, then just add a little more and I've got smokey eyes for night.
Thanks for finally giving us olive-complexion girls the best color ever!
Too rich brown is TO DIE FOR!!!
I started using too rich brown 10 years ago and I try a million other things and always come back! It is the perfect color, a puple based brown that you can put on lightly or more often I do the smoky eye. It is so flattering. Other people might have great eyeshadows, but I haven't seen anyone else do this color. I probably have over 100 eyeshadows, but if I could only have one, guess who it would be ;)
