READY. HELLO. Bare Minerals READY Blush and Eyeshadow 4.0

I have been super interested in Bare Minerals new pressed line and finally decided to give them a go.  I was walking through the Navy Exchange a few days ago and ran across these lovely compacts and decided to give some a swatch or two.  :)  
I am truly pleased that Bare Minerals has come out with a pressed line because as much as I love their eyeshadows I never use any of the ones I have because in a pinch it is a hassle to get out all of the jars and foil them etc.  (If I would have had the Minerals Mate years ago I would probably have used the original BE eyeshadows more.)
Immediately I was drawn to “The Faux Pas” which Bare Minerals describes as a blushing pink.  I like to think of it as a pop of a natural bright pink.  It is super smooth and pretty.  I have worn it every day except 1 since I purchased it.  I can honestly say that it doesn’t wear off throughout the day like some other blushes I own.  The formula of it is really long-wearing.

You all know that I am a sucker for taupe and “The Truth” quad is really perfection.  This is a nice, easy everyday go-to palette.  It featuring Serendipitous + Magnetism +Fate + Apropos (delicate peach/brushed taupe/light mocha glaze/twinkling espresso).  I love it because it offers different finishes and textures as well as light, midtone and dark shades.  This is basically a great more compact alternative to the Naked/Naked2 palette.  

Here are my swatches.  Even though these swatches look nice, I promise it will blow you away in person.  And I would also like to appologize about the swatches being slightly smudged.  I swatched them inside of my house and on my walk outside I think my arm brushed against my side.  :(  It is true to color though, so no worries there.  I plan to try more of these quads out.

    I’ve been wanting to try these shadows, I have a ton of BM jars stored away, I just got tired of the loose minerals, especially when I was getting ready for work in the mornings, there were a few times I spilled the jars on my clothes or counter.

      Agreed. I have spilled sooo many jars of loose eyeshadows while getting ready for work in a hurry. Love pressed!!!

    I really want to try their pressed shadows. My friend swears by their line, but surprisingly I’ve never tried anything other than their mineral veil (which I LOVE btw)

      I never cared for the face makeup.. just blush and e/s. I do really like these though! Lemme know if you like them when you try them.
