bareMinerals The Dream Sequence Eyeshadow Quad

Slated for an early October release, bareMinerals is launching several pressed eyeshadow quads, including The Dream Sequence ($30.00 for 0.17 oz.), which features four shades: 500 Thread Count, Romp, Boudoir, and Nightcap. bareMinerals’ pressed eyeshadow formula contains SeaNutritive Mineral Complex that gives the shadow a “creamy, silky smooth” texture with “seamless blendability” and “stay-true color.” It’s supposed to be long-wearing whether worn alone or with primer–you shouldn’t see any creasing or fading. I’ve tested various combinations of shades from the duos and quads, and I’ve happily achieved ten hours of solid wear without a primer underneath. For a review of the packaging, please read my original review.

500 Thread Count is a pale beige with a soft frosted finish. It has a really dense, buttery texture that’s almost more like a cream than a powder. The color payoff is excellent, and I love having such high pigmentation in neutral shades, which sometimes go on sheer. MAC Creamy Bisque is a touch lighter, while Urban Decay Skimp is a touch darker. It is rather close to bareMinerals Chance but warmer and with a frosted finish.

Romp is a plummy mauve with a brownish metallic finish. The texture is really soft and smooth with good color payoff. The shade itself is browner than MAC Azuki Bean and theBalm Curvy Cami. It is similar to MAC Tendersmoke but a bit darker.

Boudoir is an iridescent fuchsia-purple with a frosted finish. The texture was soft and smooth, and the pigmentation was good overall though not as dense as I’d like it to be (ideally–I am being nit picky here). I’m fond of this kind of color, but it is a shade that a lot of brands have put out, so you might have something similar in your stash already.
