bareMinerals Work, Weekend, Wow Eyeshadow Palette

bareMinerals Work, Weekend, Wow Eyeshadow Palette ($26.00 for 0.17 oz.) includes seven eyeshadows from beige to navy blue. There are a few repeats: 500 Thread Count (Permanent, The Dream Sequence), Custom Made (Limited Edition), Rowdy (Permanent, The After Party). It’s a good palette, though a few shades are on the dupable side. I liked that it leaned a little cooler-toned overall, but I would have preferred more satin/pearl finishes to pair with the mattes rather than the more sparkly/ultra-frosted shades (like Custom Made and Starstruck), as I think they have a thicker/denser consistency that makes them harder to blend with the mattes as a whole.

Sneak Peek: Fall 2015 Palettes from bareMinerals, Becca, Tarte Photos & Swatches

Tarte Energy Noir Eye & Cheek Palette
Tarte Energy Noir Eye & Cheek Palette

If it wasn’t apparent by the abundance of sneak peeks, but we are in the throes of fall color collections and releases. July you say? Well, they come a little earlier everywhere and maybe by 2020, we’ll be looking at fall in April :) The best thing I can do for you is providing early swatches while I work on the testing and writing portion of the review process. (Testing takes the longest, followed by finding dupes, in case you were curious.) For total clarity, I purchased the Becca and Tarte palettes, while bareMinerals sent theirs as a press sample.

bareMinerals The Color Compatibles Palette

bareMinerals The Color Compatibles Palette ($39.00 for 0.51 oz.) includes six eyeshadows and three cheek products. If you’re a long-time bareMinerals Ready palette collector, you’ll probably find this has too many repeats in it to justify, but if you haven’t tried the Ready line and like warmer neutrals, it’s well worth some consideration. Ready eyeshadow is one of my favorite eyeshadow formulas, and it shines in this palette. The formula is supposed to have twelve-hour wear, be pigmented, and have “seamless blendability.” The Ready blush and bronzer formula is supposed to have an eight-hour wear time with “stay-true, buildable color.”

bareMinerals Modern Pop Marvelous Moxie Lipsticks

There are three limited edition shades of Modern Pop bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipsticks ($20.00 for 0.12 oz.), which is a formula that’s supposed to be “creamy, super-saturated” with “ultra-pigmented color” in a “satin finish” that is also hydrating. All three had good color payoff, though not quite full coverage, as the texture had a lot of slip to it, which made it prone to having a bit of translucency that lets the natural lip color come through. This gives it a lighter look than a true full coverage lipstick, but it can be harder to keep it perfectly smooth and even. The wear time was average at three to four hours, but the formula was comfortable to wear and hydrating. It had a vanilla mint scent but no discernible taste.
