On this week’s Yay or Nay Sunday, bareMinerals READY 8.0 Power Neutrals Palette. I got mine when it was still in the old black more rubbery packaging. They now have 3 of these neutral palettes in nice slick gold packaging, rose gold for the Posh Neutrals and an orangy gold for the Sexy Neutrals.
I am giving this palette a Yay!
- It retails for $48 CAD and can be purchased at Sephora. I suggest that you also check the bareMinerals website because sometimes they have deals where you could potentially optain it for cheaper depending on the US/CAN exchange rate at the time.
- The palette is smaller than I expected, with the shadows being each smaller sized than the ones in their duos. However, it is nice an compact for travel or even easily put in a purse. So I don’t mind that.
- You get 8 shadows that are extremely neutrals. They all go well together to create a seamless look. You have a great combination of a light to dark matte colours which are prefect for highlighting the brow and use in the crease. There is also some nice shimmers for finishing the look just perfectly. My only caution is to be careful not to blend too much. I know that this goes against all that we have heard, as Jaclyn Hill says… blend blend blend!!, but since these colours are very close to the same tone / colour, they can look muddy. And this may sound negative, but they already blend together seamlessly because they did such a great job matching these colours that blending almost happens naturally with this palette.
- The formula of these shadows are one of my favourites. If i could only have 3 in this makeup world, I would own only Kat Von D, Makeup Geek and bareMineral shadows. So GORGEOUS. They feel buttery, creamy, and like I mention, blend like a dream.
Enjoy the swatches and the look below 🙂
