BareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 4.0 Palette

This is the first product from the bareMinerals range I have tried out. My mum actually bought it for herself as she is just getting back into makeup and it has all you need to create a soft smokey eye. This eyeshadow quad contains four neutral shades, one matt creamy taupe and 3 shimmery browns.

Priced at £29.00 this isn't the cheapest eyeshadow quad on the market. BareMinerals as a brand is supposed to naturally sourced ingredients and therefor be better for your skin which is the reasoning for the higher price point.

The shadows themselves are a very soft, buttery texture which blend together really easily. When used with a primer they can last all day without smudging or creasing. However I did find when I wore the shadows without primer they didn't stay put very well. This could be due to the fact I do get quite greasy eyelids but it's something to look out for if you suffer when greasy eyelids too. The one downside I think this eyeshadow quad has is that instead of having a matt light shade, it would have been more useful to have a matt dark brown but that is purely to do with my personal preference when creating a smokey eye look.

The eyeshadow doesn't come with any fancy packaging just a slimline black container. It's a very nice lightweight and compact design so you wouldn't mind popping it in your handbag. It comes with the usual makeup sponge stick which I never use but it could be handy for a touch up on the go.

Overall I was quite impressed with the eyeshadows however I'm not sure I would purchase more because I don't think it's really worth the £29.00 price tag. Although the quality of the shadows is good I would personally prefer to save my money and buy a cheaper quad.
