Rated 4 out of 5 by PLou1981 Needs a better pot
Product is lovely and lasts but the pot is dreadful. Waste more than you use opening it. Please change it to your standard pot for every other loose powder you do with the closing insert.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lili Eyeshadow is good but packaging? I expect more for 15quid a pot
I got a set of bare minerals eye shadows previously (the smaller pots). I wasn't terribly surprised that the minis don't have closing lids. I liked the formula so I decided to get one of the bigger ones for "on the go", expecting it to be a properly closeable pot (like the foundation / bronzer / setting powders etc. with the extra slide-on bit that prevents powder from coming out all over the lid).
Imagine my shock-horror when it turned out that the full size pots also only have the screw-on lids. I'm very surprised no reviewers mention this, and as far as I am concerned, it's a complete deal breaker as I can't take the eye shadow anywhere with me without it creating complete mess on opening. It is the first and last full-size loose eye shadow I get from BM (unless they fix the packaging of course). I know other mineral makeup brands that package their eye shadows properly, so I can actually take them with me somewhere.
For £15 a pot I really don't think I'm asking too much.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Darlingbunny The best eyeshadow
I absolutely love this eyeshadow, the shade is my favourite for every day wear. It is subtle with a lovely shimmer.

I have this in the shade Drama and I LOVE it! The pigmentation is beautiful and it is long-lasting... perfect for a night out!

I never associate BareMinerals with anything but really good foundation and tinted moisturisers. And considering I adore everything I've tried I thought I should branch out onto the eyes. Lemme tell you-amazing!! I firstly bought Queen Tiffany which is this lovely gold shimmer that matches any brown eyeshadow! I had about 101 compliments over this and everyone was always surprised it wasn't the usual that is heavily publicised etc. I recommend this highly!
Rated 5 out of 5 by maddie212 perfect pigment pot!
The pigment in these eyeshadows are beautiful! They work really well with the bareminerals primer and bring out the colour even more! Usually when i apply my eyeshadow i get little specks under my eye where it 'flakes' but these do not!

I was in a "Smokey Eye" rut, always using variations of the same shades. I wanted a definite striking look, for a day time event that I, rightly, thought would last all night too.
I ordered "Ell-If-I-Know", as ever, it arrived promptly.
The Shimmer eyeshadow, is very striking. Don't assume such shades are the reserve of high fashion shoots, the cat walk, or make up artists. It's clearly not intended to be a subtle shade, but it's very wearable.
I applied "Well Rested Face and Eye Brightener" and Prime Time eye lid primer. I used the narrow end of the precision eye brush to dab along lash line, and corner of my waterline. I've got (quite pale) blue eyes, but this makes them look as blue as I've ever seen them. Now I really know what make up artists mean, when they say "This will make your eye colour POP"!! I used neutral colours on the rest of the eye, so nothing detracted from this stunning blue,but also to make sure I didn't look OTT.
The yield is incredible, I can't imagine ever needing to re-stock. Obviously, this means it's also great value for money.
I think, this Summer will see me trying a few more BM "Shimmers", as I've re-discovered the transformation a splash of colour makes.
Very happy customer. :-)
Rated 5 out of 5 by General Would thoroughly recommend to anyone!
I first purchased this eyeshadow in the 'nude beach' colour several years ago on the recommendation of a friend with much darker skin than me (I am very pale) and so was skeptical if it would look right, as it suited her. However, it was money well spent. It is so easy to sweep on as a colour by itself or to layer with other eyeshadows. It is glittery enough to be used for an evening look (best when layered) but most commonly I wear it during the day as it is super easy and quick to use and comes out a very natural colour. I always get lots of compliments about how nice my eye makeup is when I apply this shadow. Best of all it has lasted for ages and ages; the pot contains loads of shadow and you don't need much each time because the colour is so strong. Given how long it has lasted it is certainly money well spent. Buy it!
