bareMinerals The Mix Master Eyeshadow Palette
bareMinerals The Mix Master Eyeshadow Palette

bareMinerals The Mix Master Eyeshadow Palette ($48.00, now $34.00, for 12 x 0.05 oz. / 0.60 oz. total) consists of twelve READY eyeshadows inside a medium-thick, plastic palette. The palette contains a palette within it–a 3-eyeshadow palette that slides out of the larger palette. You can pop in and out your favorite shades to take with you as a trio, rather than the whole kit ‘n’ caboodle, should you desire. The trio also holds a travel-sized, double-ended brush. Generally, I get between ten and twelve hours of wear (no primer) with bareMinerals’ formula–some of the sheerer ones that have a drier texture will show fading before ten hours (usually after eight or so).

Stealth is described as an “apricot chiffon.” It’s a pale, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a satin finish. It is also in The Hidden Agenda eyeshadow duo (part of the permanent range). It had fairly good color payoff, but the texture wasn’t as buttery as compared to the one in the duo. See comparison swatches.

Daydream is described as a “nude creme.” It’s a pale, subtly warm-toned beige with a matte finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft, blendable but not powdery. This is in The Escape eyeshadow duo (part of the permanent range). See comparison swatches.

Embellish is described as a “glittery pewter.” It’s a medium-dark brown with golden bronze shimmer and slight sparkle over a frosted finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft and buttery. See comparison swatches.

Perspective is described as a “deep espresso.” It’s a blackened brown with cool undertones and a satin finish. The consistency was somewhat dry, a little stiff to work with, and the color payoff was decent but not opaque. See comparison swatches.

Panorama is described as a “charcoal.” It’s a dark gray with cool undertones and a subtle satin sparkle. The shade was semi-sheer, dry, and stiff to work with, and it was also prone to fading faster than other shades (after eight hours). See comparison swatches.

Mixologist is described as a “champagne sheen.” It’s a pale, warm-toned peachy-beige with a frosted sheen. It had so-so color payoff, and I noticed it wasn’t as soft or as buttery as the permanent version (found in The Top Shelf duo). See comparison swatches.

Maven is described as a “blackened navy.” It’s a cool-toned, purplish navy blue with a matte finish. It had fairly good pigmentation, and the texture was soft but could have been a bit more blendable. See comparison swatches.

Muse is described as a “pink frost.” It’s a light-medium pink with a soft, frosted finish and subtle cool undertones. It had good pigmentation, and the consistency was soft and buttery. This shade is part of The Inspiration duo (part of the permanent range). See comparison swatches.

Max Volume is described as a “smoky jade.” It’s a blackened emerald green with a soft, frosted sheen. It had on the drier side, so the color payoff wasn’t as intense as one would expect. This shade was in The Playlist, which was a limited edition palette. See comparison swatches.

Hot Commodity is described as a “metallic medium copper.” It’s a light-medium, golden bronze with a frosted, metallic sheen. It had excellent color payoff, was incredibly soft and smooth, and a cinch to blend. See comparison swatches.

Custom Made is described as a “pink quartz pearl.” It’s a pink-tinged peach with a frosted finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft, silky, and buttery. This shade was in The Finer Things, a limited edition palette. See comparison swatches.

In Vogue is described as a “matte smoky purple.” It’s a medium-dark, subtly reddish-toned violet purple with a satin finish. The texture was dry, somewhat stiff, and not as easy to blend as I’d like to see. It had so-so pigmentation. See comparison swatches.

    Ohhhh…Custom Made and Hot Commodity are calling my name! Beautiful shades :)

    I got this yesterday for $27 with a coupon! I’ve only used 4 shades so far, but I think a B+ rating is fair. I used the green shade and found it to fade a lot over time. By the end of the day, it didn’t look very green, more just brown!

  3. Ooh, Maven, Stealth and In Vogue look so pretty. Especially stealth – could there be a more perfect shade name for a rogue? ;-)

    The pop-in/pop-out idea is a really cute one, although it does leave the ‘full’ packaging looking a little fractured and awkward. Really love the concept though, as you almost never way to schlep *all* the shades from a large palette around with you!

    Lovely Idea! However, I am kind of disappointed of the lack of pigmentation in the palette. :(

  5. Big surprise….I love the look of this. I already have Daydream in The Escape duo but I love the BM Ready shadow formulation so much that I might well buy this. Embellish, Max Volulme, In Vogue and Hot Commodity are really speaking to my inner eyeshadow addict.

    Christine, I’ve heard some complaints about the eyeshadows being broken easily in this palette (whether it was received that way or not). Have you experienced anything of the sort?

  7. I bought this palette just for “Embellish.” I love it! Great payoff and easy to blend. I hope they make it part of their permanent line. I’d love it in a big single! Ever hear if bareMinerals will do that for their ready shadows?

  8. Some shades I think are really pretty, but in general, the palette as a whole isn’t my thing.

  9. Love the pop out palette concept but not feeling the eyeshadow colors.
