On this Sunday Yay or Nay bareMinerals 5 in 1BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow in the colour Soft Linen.
The rating on this one is… drum roll… YAY!
I have seen some reviews on this products from fellow bloggers that they either don’t see the point of this product or just mixed reviews. I got this full-size version of this product when I got a sort of mystery box from bareMinerals. I would have never picked it up, but I decided to give this a try and it has become my go-to for work. As you can see in the picture below, it is a very natural eye that adds to my everyday makeup for work.
Here is why I like this product. It is creamy (duh, it’s in the name…) and it creates a natural look. But also because it is multi-purpose. It can be used as a base/primer for any other eyeshadow or used as an eyeshadow by itself. I have red eyelids and I always need some kind of primer that neutralizes my lids and not just a transparent primer. I decided to try this product only as a primer but it felt so good on and looked great on my lids that I just decided to leave it as is. I applied it all over the lid up to my brows using my finger and it instantly covered all the red and brightened my eyes. I then slapped on some eyeliner and mascara and bam, out the door I went.
I wore it all last week at work and there was able to test out its durability. Normally, cream eyeshadows are just not my thing, they tend to feel sticky on my lids and they crease (even with a primer) and they are just generally uncomfortable (even the benefit ones). This one was not like that, it fulfilled my need for a shadow that I can just put on and get out the house quickly and also neutralize my lids. It was comfortable all day, it did not crease, it did not dry out. ❤ If these uses I mentioned are not for you, then you may not like this product.
All in all, I love it, and the more I looked at the website and saw the other colour options, I want to get more to add a colour to my slap-on-and-go look for the work week!
