Quick Review: bareMinerals Strike It Rich Primer Shadow Kit

bareMinerals Strike It Rich Primer Shadow Kit ($18.00 for 0.05 fl. oz. x 5) includes five mini-sized shades of bareMinerals’ Primer Shadow: Sundance (sunlit peach), Bronzed Twig (iced chocolate), Gold Nugget (radiant gold), Gunmetal (midnight silver), and Sandalwood (golden taupe). Though this was a kit from last year’s holiday collection, it’s still available for purchase!

  • Bronzed Twig is a warm, chocolate bronze with a soft shimmer-sheen finish.
  • Gold Nugget is a coppery gold with a metallic sheen.
  • Gunmetal is a silvered gray with a hint of brown.
  • Sandalwood is a bronzy gold with a metallic finish.
  • Sundance is a golden-orange shimmered peachy-orange with a metallic finish.

I have reviewed three of the five shades in-depth here. The Prime Time Shadow formula is supposed to be crease-proof and water-proof while delivering “rich, vivid metallic color” with a “creamy, lightweight texture.” This formula dries down very quickly (fifteen seconds or so), and once they’re set, they don’t budge at all. I’ve worn some shades for as long as twelve hours without creasing, fading, or smudging. The only downside to these is the amount you get in the full-sized version at $18 a pop–I just checked both Beauty.com and bareMinerals.com, and the full-sized versions are discounted to $12, but this little kit is a good value, since you get five shades and twice the amount you would in a single full-sized tube at $18. (Here, you’re getting 0.25 fl. oz. for $18.00.)

** A Note on Quick Reviews: ┬áIn an effort to be more on-the-ball for 2013, I’m digging through my photo folders and getting as much posted as I can. These are not full-length, in-depth reviews, and instead, I’m writing brief reviews. For dupes, I highly suggest checking out The Swatch Gallery; it’s my first stop whenever I am looking for possible dupes. All of the swatches in this post are automatically added to the gallery, so you can compare them for yourself.

    These are really pretty but the only one that really interests me is Gunmetal. I’d like an individual primer that is a more cool toned grey like that because most of the ones I see are either matte nude or warm toned shimmer.

  2. Do you wear them as primer (with powder shadow) or just on their own? They’re so pigmented, you could totally skip powder shadow if you wanted…

    • I’ve mostly tested these as eyeshadows on their own, though I’ve worn a few shades as a primer with eyeshadow on top. They’re meant to be worn either way :)

    I really the Bare Minerals primer shadows but these colours just aren’t my cup of tea.

    Sundance looks a lot like Rubenesque paint pot. However Rubenesque tends to be too sheer and doesn’t have even coverage. This seems like a much better alternative :)

  5. I think these shades are really pretty. It’s a ton of product though, it would take me so long to use these up… I guess since they’re cream, I tend to think they won’t last as long as powders, but maybe they would, since it’s not jar-packaging

    These are so pretty swatched on the arm. Unfortunately they don’t work on my lids at all :(
