bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette
bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette

bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette ($39.00 for 0.65 oz.) includes eight eyeshadows, two blushes, one highlighter, and one bronzer. The palette has $56.47 worth of eyeshadow, $15.33 worth of blush, $7.20 worth of highlighter, and $8.00 worth of bronzer for a total value of $87.00. I liked it, though it’s not quite as impressive as most of the Ready palettes are (they are nearly perfect), and one aspect that I really appreciated was that one row of eyeshadows was warmer and one row was cooler (though not truly cool-toned). The palette is also slim, so it doesn’t take up a lot of space.

Natural is described as a “light buttery peach.” It’s a light, yellowed beige with a semi-matte finish. It had so-so color coverage, but the texture was firmer and thinner compared to the other shades in the palette (and from the Ready line overall). The color lasted for 10 hours (Ready formula is marketed as a 12-hour formula). This version is a lot lighter and much less warm compared to the previous version I tried.

Cognac is described as a “gilded bronze.” It’s a medium, golden copper bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented, rich and buttery in texture, blended effortlessly, and lasted twelve hours on me. Tarte Ethereal (PiP, ) is warmer (90% similar).

Namaste is described as a “sandy brown.” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with a hint of gray and warm undertones paired with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a smooth, silky texture that wasn’t too powdery and blended nicely on the skin. It lasted for eleven hours on me. LORAC Dark Brown (PiP, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar).

500 Thread Count is described as an “airy pink.” It’s a very light, warm-toned beige with a satin finish.

Romp is described as an “iridescent lilac.” It’s a muted, medium-dark silvery purple with cool undertones and warmer, gold shimmer paired with a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a very soft, smooth consistency that glided across the skin like butter. On my skin, the color lasted a full twelve hours. The version in the palette seems a bit more metallic, and almost cooler in tone due to the stronger sheen, than the one I had before. Clinique Lavish Lilac (P, $17.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Flash is described as a “matte purple clay.” It’s a muted, medium-dark purple mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had decent pigmentation, but it could have been more pigmented, though it is buildable. The consistency was soft, smooth, and finely-milled, so it was easy to blend out, and as it wasn’t powdery, it didn’t sheer out too readily. The color started to fade after ten and a half hours of wear. Kat Von D Plum (Contour) (PiP, ) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Misty Mauve (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Inglot #358 (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Forbidden (PiP, $9.99) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Ciate Pony (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar).

Regal is described as a “velvet plum.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and plum and bronze sparkle. The texture was a little drier compared to the other shades, perhaps due to the larger sparkle in it, and it was semi-opaque. This shade wore well for ten hours. Guerlain Ors et Merveilles #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Pewter (PiP, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Pat McGrath Lazarus (PiP, $25.00) is darker (90% similar).

The Summer Fling is described as a “creamy peach.” It’s a light-medium peach with a semi-matte finish.

The Skinny Dip is described as a “light tan.” It’s a medium, yellowed brown with warm undertones and a faint golden pearl. The bronzer had good pigmentation with a smooth, thinner texture that was blendable on the skin. The sheen is very subtle, so it didn’t emphasize pores. On me, the color lasted for eight hours. Too Faced Pineapple Paradise (Bronzer) (PiP, ) is cooler (95% similar). Dior Warm Sunrise (004) (P, $48.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Instead of The Regal Wardrobe, I think they should call this The Office Wardrobe. It’s not the most exciting or unique set of colors, but looks very wearable and nice for business travel. BTW, what is that lipstick you are wearing? Goes great with this kit

I love how compact this looks! I have the palette that they released last year but this has more product I think. I know that I wouldn’t use the bronzer. Everything else looks lovely though. I’ll wait to see it in person. 🙂

This looks good, but cardboard packaging is kinda no-go for me. I do love what I’ve tried of this eyeshadow formula though – thanks for introducing it to me Christine! Just got my third ready duo (The Epiphany) a couple of days ago and it did not disappoint!

It is funny, but I almost prefer cardboard over plastic now! It just stores better and can take abuse, lol! Metal over plastic or cardboard, though 🙂

I don’t know why BM blushes look so pale to me, like they would definitely have some trouble showing up on me? Because in MAC Pro Longwear, I am an NC40 (yes, I exchanged my foundation yesterday!). And for the eyeshadow shades, I think I have dupes galore for these!
However, I DO see this as being a great gift to give to someone who is just beginning to build up their makeup collection or who is fairly new to makeup, as these look super blendable and mistake proof.

Oh, BTW, I love this eye look you did using these! Time for me to bring out my CP Mixed Tape and Party Time, and pull in a few ABH Self-Made shades, and try to get something fairly close to that?

Nice. But, I must say, I’m bummed they didn’t meet the high standards they have set for themselves on this one. For some reason, I feel like not many people know about this formula and Ulta tends to mark them down even lower eventually. This one may sell through for the Holidays. I’m not sure if it’s something I’m interested in or not. I really don’t need it. Pretty dupable. I think I would need to see it in person.

Lovely palette, though I don’t care for the shade of Skinny Dip. It’s way too yellow. I’m liking the eyeshadows very muchy, especially Cognac, Romp and Flash. So pretty! I don’t think this palette is a “must have” for me, though.

A very pretty palette – with lots and lots of dupable colours (as we can see from your dupe list). This palette will struggle against all the many other neutral, warm toned palettes out there. The only colour I really liked was Cognac. Generally it rated really well. It has a good mix of matte and shimmery shades.
I really love the eye look you did with this palette Christine.

Although popular and well rated, bare Minerals does not play nice with my skin. Have no idea why. I like the colors and try once a year with now luck. Suggestions?

I don’t recall names bc I can’t see them without glasses. I’m just now getting used to powdered face products, developing a lighter hand. I should probably try again. I like IT Cosmetics powder foundations and am improving at application. I should try this brand again

They need to amp up their packaging and excitement factor. Compared to the other holiday releases they always look so blah and unappealing. I get that they’re more targeted to natural looks and probably a slightly older demographic than some makeup brands but companies like tarte goes more natural and yet has exciting releases with cute packaging. I do like those 2 mauve/purple shades though.

Different strokes for different folks! 🙂 Tarte and Too Faced’s packaging so rarely do it for me, but I tend to like simpler packaging (Burberry’s is my favorite).

A very nice selection of easily worn everyday eyeshadows. I feel I have quite a lot of dupes, if not I’d rater like to get this, even if I will hardly use the bronzer at all.

I swatched this at Sephora the other day and thought.. meh. However, you sure got a beautiful eye look out of this palette ( love the lower blue-ish liner ). Maybe I should revisit this palette 🙂

Really! I think the blushes are less impressive, but the eyeshadows were nice (and comparable to their other shades). Their blushes were less impressive to me than their eyeshadows even when they were initially released, though.

This is on sale on ulta’s site for $29. I originally passed because I have the of the eyeshadow shades in quads and duos, but I have really been wanting Top Shelf for cognac, so I think I’ll get this instead since it’s on sale.
