Bare Minerals The Finer Things

This holiday season bareMinerals wants YOU to have The Finer Things. And The Finer Things just happens to be the name of their new Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 palette.

This palette features eight nicely pigmented eyeshadow, a large mirror inside, a dual-ended applicator brush and a mini Prime Time Eyelid Primer.

I believe this is my first experience with bareMinerals eyeshadows and let me say right now I am really impressed with the texture and pigmentation of these. Most excellent!

Bare Minerals The Finer Things Swatches
Penthouse, Custom Made, Chateau, Truffle (over primer)

Penthouse is a jet black with silver glitter. I am so impressed with how amazingly pigmented and soft this shadow is!

Custom Made is a metallic rose pink.

Chateau is a medium dove grey with very slight sheen but mostly matte looking. Great shade.

Truffle is a medium metallic bronze.

First Class, Upgrade, Five Star, Private Isle (over primer)

First Class is a medium greenish gold/taupe metallic. Very unusual shade, I like it.

Upgrade is a deep plum/taupe with shimmer. Another kind of unusual but pretty one.

Five Star is a very bright and opaque white matte. Great texture.

Private Isle is a medium/deep shimmery navy blue. It has slight golden shimmer and really nicely pigmented.

Overall: Impressive! I really loved the super soft blendable texture these shadows have. All of them were pigmented and pretty. I love when I can use every color in a palette and they feel like quality shadows. No chalky sheer shades here!
