Review: Bare Minerals Eyeshadows and Liners
Both the liners and shadows that I tried out were powdered products. All are extremely finely milled and there was a good mix of pearly, shimmery, glittery and matte shades. My first issue with these products is that you really have no choice but to foil them- using them dry made a holy mess all over my face, clothes and carpet.
So, after I cleaned up and hoovered the floor I turned to my BFF Fix+ and, for the lid, brow and inner corner highlight, this worked beautifully. The colour foiled on the lid was really rich and pigmented and didn't loose its shimmer. However, when I tried the same technique in my crease, we were back to being messy messy again. There is no room to blend or move these shadows around the eye without a whole pile of fallout on your cheeks. If you've seen any of my previous eye looks, you'll know I love to build colours and create really soft, blended edges and this just isn't an option with this type of shadow.
