I have a line-up of reviews from the Dior holiday 2011 collection to share with you but couldn’t wait to show you photos and swatches of this new bareMinerals shadow duo I picked up during the recent Ulta friends & family sale.
First of all, I would scoop up these buttery smooth, turbo pigmented shadows with or without a discount (and that’s saying something).
I’m not sure how the chemists cooked up this formulation of powders but I’ve honestly never felt anything else quite like this. The feel is somewhere between the most expensive silk and the softest crushed velvet.
And as pretty as the colors are (although honestly, in the pans they look just okay) it’s only when you touch and apply that these shadows come to life.
The only downside (for me anyway) is that the packaging is made of the same black rubberized material NARS uses for their compacts. It’s not my favorite packaging concept because while it looks sleek and modern, it catches lint, leaves prints and is difficult to keep clean.
Today I’m sharing photos of The Vision (and boy is it ever!).
On the left is a light mint blue, Illusion. I didn’t expect to like this color but it looks fantastic on the lid. On the Right is Mirage. Aptly named because it is a green-brown duochrome with touches of blue. This shadow is bananas!
If you haven’t already noticed, I tend to immerse myself in a brand before I get giddy with another. Do you ever do that? This means you’ll be seeing more bareMinerals reviews from me in the very near future.
