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.
Have you tried anything from the Bare Minerals READY line? If so let me know which item in the comments below. What did you think about them?
