bareMinerals - the next big thing

25/03/2013


bareMinerals ready the next big thing palette (limited edition) - £29*

what is this? a beauty post... my oh my this post is SO overdue it's actually a little bit silly. one thing i do love when it comes to make up is eyeshadows, some people don't understand the hype but there is nothing greater than a smokey eye created by a variety of different shades. i only really use urban decay eye shadows with the occasional mac pot thrown in but when look fantastic gave me the opportunity to try this out i couldn't have been more excited. bareMinerals are a brand i had never used before, nor did i really know much about them. i only thought of them as a company that created really low coverage but healthy looking face products but i'm super happy they have created a whole new range of 'ready' products.

the first thing i love is the packaging, it's so neat and compact which is super appealing to me. even though i love my naked and naked 2 palettes they are so bloomin' big there's no way in hell you'd be able to carry them around if you wanted to create a quick day to night eye look whilst on the go. secondly, i love that all four shades are different finishes which is great for me as there are some days when i feel like using a bit of shimmer instead of my usual matte shades. i think all four shades compliment each other so well meaning they can be used in a series of different ways and still look great. so far i tried out rising star and hoopla out together a few times and i loved them. with a primer they stayed on all day and didn't crease while i was at work. i can't wait to try out smash hit and ensemble together, i think they will look like the matte version of kayleigh from couturegirl's cranberry and purple smokey eye she created with shimmery mac shades a while ago. i'll definitely be uploading it onto instagram showing you how it looks! what do you think, is this something you'd consider adding to your make up collection? let me know. :)
