The palette is available on Bare Minerals UK site as well as at Selfridges. I was tempted to ask my best friend who lives in London to grab it for me be she’s damn slow to ship things.

Perhaps we’ll get it here in the US?

Yes, please.

Would you indulge if we do?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment.

    I know BM pressed shadows are apparently fantastic, and this palette will likely be leaps and bounds better than the sephora palette, but you have to admit that side by side, it’s a comic price jump.

    I’m like Goldilocks. The sephora one I’m skeptical of, and the BM is ridiculously expensive. I want one right in the middle. Maybe the smashbox one? Or even one with less since I doubt with all the makeup I have that I need that many shadows (blasphemy, I know).

  • fancyprance

    I was so excited when I originally saw this, but upon further inspection it’s an easy pass. The colors are all repeats. Anyone who is a BE buff (no pun intended) will most likely own the majority of these already. I almost feel like this is a flip off to their loyal fans.

  • Lisa

    I’ve always though BM Ready shadows were pretty pricey, but this is nuts. Compare that to the Smashbox Photo Op Mega Palette from Holiday 2012. $100 or so is a much more appropriate price point for something like this. Heck, that’s more that the big Laura Mercier palette.

  • Kaitlyn

    If it’s cheaper when it comes to the US, maybe.. Cosmetic companies do sometimes tend to make things more expensive outside the US. It would have to be less than $200 to tempt me though. I have been wanting to try their pressed shadows, but there are less expensive ways to do so.

    Way too expensive! Holiday sets are so neumerous and inexpensive I don’t know how pallettes like this will sell. I have and love the Smashbox Pallette that was a TSV on. QVc a couple years ago and it contained all of the regular colors in their line!Lu’s lots of extras. Although that was close to $100, it was a way better deal than this and they havereininvented that one many times at a lesser cost.

  • JenJ

    I first saw this on Instagram and my mouth fell open!. Even if it does comes to the US, I know I can’t swing $350+ for one palette.

  • telle

    wowza another bangin’ palette! i was really excited and then another pricetag jumped up and bit me in the face. i wouldn’t pay more than $80-$90 for this. i agree with other readers….the pricing (even if for UK) is beyond ridiculous and BE/BM can have fun sitting on a big stock of these b/c these shan’t be flyin’…… in the meanwhile, it is gorg to look at! 😀

    maybe itll b availble at feelunique . they do free shipping worldwide

    WTF – REALLY? Not even a little bit. I’m getting sick of over-inflated prices for product that can’t possibly cost that much to produce. Good thing I have been hoarding shadow palettes since the late 90’s – I’m good, I don’t need a thing.

    Greed is not pretty.

  • Jade


    Seriously, I’d buy this in a heartbeat if I had that kind of money to spend. It’s slightly overpriced – at $20 USD a duo this is $480 value, so $7.50 each shadow. Needs to come down a bit I think, but I couldn’t see it coming down much more, to be honest.

    • Maggie

      I just researched the price breakdown as far as value from temptalia. The value is better than the duos but not quite as good as the others.

      Ready 2.0 (duos) $200/oz
      Ready 4.0 (quads) $176/oz
      Ready 8.0 (8-pan palettes) $143/oz

      This Artistry palette: $187/oz

      I’d seriously consider this if Ready eyeshadows did as well on my eyelids as it seems to do for everyone else. I despise opening up a bunch of palettes when I’m putting together a look with colors from several different ones. Bareminerals might be cheaper in the USA.
