BareMinerals Pressed Powder Shadows

I wrote this post forever ago and then I don’t know why I never published it! Anyway, it’s a bit delayed since I wrote it right when they quads were released, silly me.

I got “The Soundtrack” quad, which includes a matte highlighter and three shimmery shadows in gold, bronze and olive tones. I also got “The Honeymoon Phase” and “The Alter Ego” duos. The Honeymoon Phase is simple, classic and beautiful. It contains the peachy matte pink and a slightly shimmery gray color that go beautifully together and The Alter Ego has shimmery yellow green and a matter plum that offset each other nicely. The duos retail for $20 on their website and the quad retails for $30.

The Honeymoon Phase

These soft touch containers are beautiful and classic, the texture of soft touch containers is my favorite; I always think it’s classier too. I don’t think I have a specific favorite between the quad and duos as I really like the texture and colors of all of them. I have medium olive complexion and I find that bronze, golds and purples suit me well and these all contain those colors or highlighters that I believe suit everyone! I’m glad that bareMinerals has decided to add pressed shadows to their skews, because I’m sure like me, others are out there who have a preference for pressed over loose. An attribute that the quad has is a large compact mirror that won me over, because some compacts add a small mirror to go along with their shadows, blushes etc… but bareMinerals has included an all filling mirror that is rather large. Love love love!

    How are the colours on? Does the eyeshadow stay put all day?
