The Bare Minerals The Suede Neutrals Ready Eyeshadow Palette ($36) is a new, QVC exclusive Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 Palette that recently launched for Spring 2016. This is the third Spring 2016 Palette we’re seeing from Bare Minerals with The Neutral Attraction Eyeshadow Palette being available at Sephora and other locations and the Nature of the Nudes Palette which is exclusively at Ulta.
Bare Minerals The Suede Neutrals Ready Eyeshadow Palette is a selection of nearly all matte shades which looked like a great pick for nude Spring looks.
Here’s my review and swatches.
Bare Minerals The Suede Neutrals Ready Eyeshadow Palette comes housed in a silver mirror compact that features eight shades of Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadows in:
- Satin Cloud
- Gold Leaf
- Pale Silk
- Vintage Suede
What sets this compact apart from other Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 Palettes is the fact that six of the eight shades are matte. So if matte eyeshadow is your thing, I’m sure you’ll get on great with the Suede Neutrals. There’s also one frost here and a shimmery metallic shade as well. The mattes are very soft, silky, and have a finely milled consistency that applies easily with very little fall out. The frost and shimmery metallic shade also have a nice soft consistency but aren’t quite the creamy smooth texture I’ve gotten in past palettes from BE. These felt a little thinner and sheerer in comparison but none the less still very nicely formulated. The shades did have to built as many blended out sheerer sadly so I found myself going over them a few times for intensity.
The palette is a nice selection of shades but I struggled with it as it was difficult getting contrast from many of these colors since they were so similar. I kept getting a good deal of muddiness during the blending process as the shades seemed to all blend into one color. I think it might prove a better pick for someone with a cooler skin tone who doesn’t want to overwhelm themselves with intense shades of brown or tan. But for me, it seemed like all the shaded looked the same on my eye.
It’s very rare I don’t like a Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow Palette but this one didn’t quite work out for me.
I was thinking if I use individual shades in my looks it might prove a better outcome but using these shades together just wasn’t working out.
