bareMinerals Be Beautiful READY Face & Eye Palette ($45.00 for 0.58 oz.) contains six eyeshadows and four cheek colors (including one finishing powder). Often, bareMinerals’ Ready Palettes are cardboard, but this palette featured plastic, and it was fairly hefty to hold. The palette includes shades previously released as well as a few new ones.

bareMinerals The Neutral Attraction Palette ($45.00 for 0.70 oz.) includes six eyeshadows, two blushes, one bronzer, and one highlighter in a slim, cardboard palette. It is a limited edition, warm-toned neutral palette for summer. All but one of the eyeshadows (Debutante) has been released in the past, and The Premiere was previously available as well. I hope to review in full (since this has a lot of repromotes, it is lower on my priority list!), but I hope you enjoy these swatches for now.

bareMinerals The Soft & the Smoky Eyeshadow Palette

bareMinerals The Soft & the Smoky Eyeshadow Palette
bareMinerals The Soft & the Smoky Eyeshadow Palette

bareMinerals The Soft & the Smoky Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.24 oz.) includes eight eyeshadows in subdued, earthy tones. I spotted it on QVC last week and had to have it, and bonus, right now it’s slightly discounted (basically takes care of shipping fees). I ended up liking it quite a bit, and it’s both wearable and smokier–more colorful and more unique than a lot of bareMinerals palettes have been. No duds, but those with extensive Ready collections may find it has too many repromotes.

Celebrate is described as a “yellow-cream.” It’s a light beige with warm undertones and a satiny finish.

In the Buff is described as a “light golden-peach.” It’s a light-medium, peachy orange with hints of pink and a frosted sheen. It seemed more shimmery than the last version I reviewed of it (this is a repromote). It had fairly good color payoff with a soft, lightly dense texture that blended well and lasted for ten hours.

Heavenly Halo is described as a “silver whisper.” It’s a bright, cool-toned beige with a frosted sheen.

Midnight Luminance is described as a “gunsmoke.” It’s a muted, medium-dark reddish-brown with a lot of cooler green-teal shimmer. It’s almost a duochrome, but it seemed like a subdued variation on the green-brown duochrome we’ve seen from many brands in the past and didn’t have a lot of shift. The texture was soft, just a smidgen powdery, and it was easy to work with for application and blending. It wore well for ten hours. L'Oreal Green Promenade (P, $5.99) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Silver Sun (P, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). Buxom No Faux (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

A-Ha is described as a “brown sugar.” It’s a medium-dark, peachy bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich color payoff with a really smooth, buttery texture that blended beautifully and adhered well to bare skin. On me, the color lasted for almost eleven hours. YSL Saharienne #4 (P) is darker (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Court in Cannes (LE, $9.99)(95% similar). LORAC Dark Mocha (P, $19.00) is darker (95% similar).

True Chocolate is described as a “soft matte brown.” It’s a medium-dark, yellow-toned brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. This shade darkened a lot when used on the skin compared to how it appeared in the pan! The texture was smooth, slightly thin and a little firm in the pan, but it blended without issue on the skin.

Eureka is described as a “metallic moss.” It’s a medium-dark, olive green with warm, gold and forest green shimmer paired with a metallic sheen. It had rich color payoff with a really smooth, dense, and buttery texture that made it easy to apply to bare skin without losing the intensity. I noticed slight creasing after ten and a half hours of wear. Urban Decay Mildew (P, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). theBalm #30 (P, $6.50) is less shimmery (95% similar).
