While at my favorite makeup store I saw a kit by bareMinerals and decided to try it out. As I’m sure you’re aware of by now, I’m a little OCD about palettes and kits because their just easy and included everything you need. I snapped up this little gem on my way to the register so I really didn’t even look at it to see what was included in it. But since it was a kit I figured that it would have all that I needed for a new look. On the cover the kit reads: “Learn the lessons they didn’t teach you in school. Tutorials: Foiled Eye”
On the inside flap of the kit is the “tutorial” or rather instructions on how and where to apply the shadow. I was kind of hoping for something a little more in depth. Take a look:
The kit includes two mineral shadows and a double-ended brush.
The two shades are Night Owl and Disco Glimmer – cute names huh? Night Owl is a translucent steel amethyst shade and Disco Glimmer is a lilac pearl shade. Both shades can be worn wet or dry depending on the effect that you are looking to achieve.
The shadows are pretty pigmented dry on skin, here are the swatches:
I love these shades for the evening, I don’t know if I would wear them during the day. I also found the loose shadows a bit messy so it’s going to take me a while to get used to using them.
Overall the kit was worth the price because it includes two shadows and a double sided eye shadow brush.
The foiled eye kit retails at $32 and can be purchased at Sephora.
