bareMinerals The Power Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette

bareMinerals The Power Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.28 oz.) contains eight eyeshadows with a neutral color-scheme. They’re part of the bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow range, which means they’re supposed to have rich color with 12-hour long-wear. I wore several shades from the palette, and they wore well for ten hours, but after a full twelve hours, there was some very slight fading. Generally, all of the eyeshadows had good color payoff and were very soft and smooth to the touch–so a couple of shades were just a smidgen powdery but did not look that way on the lid or sheer out too easily.

Boss Lady is described as a “shimmer bronze.” (That’s what the website says, but I think it’s a mistake.) It’s a pale, light peachy-beige with a satin finish and subtle warm undertones. It had excellent color payoff and a soft, smooth texture. theBalm Matt Smith is less shimmery. L’Oreal Promiscuous Pearl is more shimmery. theBalm Adagio is more matte. Urban Decay Anonymous is similar. MAC Phloof is cooler-toned, more shimmery. Dior Fairy Golds #1 is more shimmery. bareMinerals Serendipitous is warmer. Inglot #352 is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Moneymaker is described as a “dusty olive.” It’s a deepened but subdued khaki brown with the merest hint of green and a mostly matte finish. The color payoff was nice, and the texture was soft and finely-milled. theBalm Lead Zeppelin is more shimmery, warmer. Urban Decay Snare is grayer, more shimmery. Dior Khaki Design #1 is darker. Burberry Khaki is warmer, lighter. bareMinerals Utopia is much greener. Make Up For Ever #47 is also much greener. Make Up For Ever #148 is warmer, lighter. See comparison swatches.

Schmooze is described as a “bronze sheen.” It’s a medium-dark bronze brown with a subtle warm, golden champagne shimmer and sheen. The color payoff was fantastic, and the texture had a really soft, buttery feel. Edward Bess Cosmic Bliss #2 is warmer. theBalm Stand-offish is lighter. Urban Decay Spotlight is similar. MAC Cactus Thorn is warmer. Burberry Pale Barley is similar. See comparison swatches.

Boardroom is described as a “deep chocolate.” It’s a dark brown with subtle red undertones and a matte finish. This was the “worst” shade in the palette, as it was a bit dry and stiff compared to the others. The color payoff, as a result, was only so-so, but it does apply better with a fluffier brush and wasn’t difficult to blend out with a brush. Urban Decay Muse is more shimmery. MAC Midnight Flurry is similar. MAC Dance in the Dark is darker. MAC Showstopper is not as warm-toned. MAC Diamond Dove is similar. bareMinerals Foreshadow is also similar. Inglot #363 is lighter. Inglot #326 is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Exec is described as a “polished slate.” It’s a medium taupe with a satin-matte finish–there’s a very hint of sheen but it’s so subtle that it ends up looking more matte. It had nice pigmentation and felt very smooth and soft. MAC Bossa Blue is darker, warmer. Disney Midnight Hour #4 is darker. Disney Kill Joy is similar. Urban Decay Mushroom is darker, more shimmery. MAC Electroplate is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Payday is described as a “light granite.” It’s a pale beige with a gray cast and a mostly matte finish. It had good color payoff and a soft, smooth texture. MAC Rainy Season is very similar. Inglot #350 is cooler-toned. bareMinerals Suspense is darker. See comparison swatches.

Magnate is described as a “nude peach.” It’s a warm-toned, beige-peach with a satin finish. It’s warmer than Boss Lady and slightly darker. Kat Von D Vespertine is brighter. Urban Decay ABC Gum is darker. NARS Night Star is similar. NARS Biarritz is more beige. bareMinerals Stealth is slightly darker and more orange. Inglot #390 is similar, slightly more beige. See comparison swatches.

Get Ahead is described as a “rustic taupe.” It’s a subdued, medium-dark brown with a hint of gray and mostly matte finish. It had good color payoff and applied smoothly and evenly. Kat Von D Wolf is darker. Urban Decay Bewitch is also darker. Urban Decay Faint is more yellow-toned. NARS Self Portrait 3 #1 is redder in tone. Make Up For Ever #17 is warmer, richer. Inglot #360 is warmer. Bobbi Brown Stone is very comparable. See comparison swatches.
