love - love Please bring back, it was the best. i loved all the colors. 03-07-13
Very versatile I love this set. There are so many variations that you can use and it even comes with three suggestions. I usually use a separate brush but in a pinch the one it comes with works well too. The new READY eye shadows go on so nicely and still look nice hours and hours later. I still like the ones in the pots but these are so much neater and easier to transport. Thanks Leslie! 02-28-12
Back to the Drawing Board, Leslie I've been a bareMinerals fan for over 10 years and when I saw this on a show in November, I thought it would be perfect to take with me on a cruise we were planning. Good thing I tried it before I packed - and lest you think it was one quick trial, I used it 3-4 different times with different looks. Not once was I pleased with my handiwork - it was way, way too intense and even with just a dab, it just didn't blend like I've come to expect with other BE products. This one needs to go back to the drawing board, Leslie; but I do hope you come out with a pressed product in the future. 01-28-12
BEST BE EYE!!! Love this new formula and the colors are terrific since I prefer cool shades with my complexion. I've used all BE products since they came to QVC. The application suggestions really work. I came back to order more, but it is not available. PLEASE BRING THIS KIT BACK, LESLIE! Your products are not only the best, they are perfect! 01-04-12
Pretty Colors The colors are nice, the formula is 'creamy' for a powder. A little goes a long way. I gave it 4 stars because I wish it had more matt colors and not so many shimmer colors. 12-20-11
Different.... Though I contemplated returning this, I will keep it. I like the lighter colors, but the dark ones are really not wearable. They are messy and DARK. I had to lighten one before church the other morning and spent more than twice as long as I usually do on my shadow. I had a really hard time getting both eyes to match! These are cooler colors than the other compact of 8 so I do see these as better for my coloring. I just feel the duo compacts are probably more practical as I would buy just those I want rather than 6/8 of this larger compact. I really like the little lavender which came in the TSV kit last month. These just seem to be different. 12-20-11
Disappointed! I was very excited to get this, especially for the price (8 shadows for $40). I have tried a couple of times to make the colors work with the double-ended brush (included). No luck - it is going back. 12-17-11
Not what I expected I wanted to like this product since I really do like the BE eyeshadows. But the colors were not what I like. I did like the feel of the product, just not the colors. Sent back. 12-06-11
Great idea - But! This shadow was a great idea but it did not work well for me. Most of the colors were not what I like and looked awful on me. I did find that it flaked a lot and was too sparkly for me. Try again Leslie with perhaps more neutral colors and less sparkles and I will try it again. 12-06-11
Love the new formulation! I resisted the new pressed compact until I got my first duo in the TSV preview. Now I have purchased both 8 packs. The colors are great, they cover very well and take up so little room in drawer or makeup bag. I love, love, love these new compacts. 12-05-11
disppointed i am usually a fan of this line but found this eyeshawdow weak in terms of color and dit not last long. 12-05-11
WOW! Pure silk for the eyes! I just received this beautiful compact, and gave it a try on a Friday after a very long week.With the very first stroke of color my eyes just screamed AHHHHHHHHHH! It was soft like a baby's blanket and oh so soothing. Leslie I didn't think you could improve your already amazing product, but you hit this one through the roof. PLEASE, more color pallets, and this would be amazing in foundation and blushes.Ladies give this a try, it's absolutely wonderful, you'll be amazed at the soothing qualities of this product. I purchased this for my daughter who is a bare essentials junkie, I can't wait to hear how she'll love it. 12-04-11
