I should be into dark, smokey shades at this time of year. Should be. But thanks to the bareMinerals Ready 8.0 Power Neutrals Palette($50 CDN), I’ve been loving a natural eyeshadow look to go with my berry loving lips instead!
This palette isn’t really big, and I kind of like that. It’s tiny, but packs a powerful neutral shadow punch!
Inside are 8 neutral eyeshadows with a nice mix of finishes from mattes to satins and shimmer-shimmer baby! All palettes should be mixed textured like this I say(even though I ♥ you, I’m talking to you Dior). The names of these eyeshadows are HILARIOUS. Where’s my 90s power suit? THANK GOD I never had to wear one of them actually. I’ve never had a job where I’ve had to dress up. I think I would have died if I had to wear heels all day. Seriously, Tracy’s feets are not happy unless they are in combat boots or runners. I so little as LOOK at a pair of heels 👠 and blisters start to appear. And I also have Metatarsalgia thanks to running, so heels just aggravate my feet beyond belief. Man, HOW do I get onto these tangents? I was talking about eyeshadows just a second ago and now I’m talking about feet. 👣
So these aren’t my first bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadows. I’ve tried them before and did like them, but just never was all gaga-crazy for them. Apparently, they’ve got ingredients that deliver antiaging benefits and reduce the appearance of puffiness for a softer, smoother, revitalized eye area. I don’t know if I believe if eyeshadows can do any of that magic, but hey-I guess it can’t hurt, right?

A couple of shadows seem a bit powdery when you swatch them, but are they ever creamy! All of these shadows feel soft and creamy, even the mattes. They blend like a dream, and what surprised me the most is that there’s absolutely NO fallout whatsoever during application. Nada. Zip. You won’t get any crazy looks with this palette, just really nice wearable neutral looks for every day.
The bareMinerals Ready 8.0 Power Neutrals Palette can take you from day to night quite easily. Just add a bit more of one of the dark browns and you can really smoke out your day time look. I’ve been just loving these easy neutral, clean eye looks myself though. Sometimes even I get tired of bright coloured eyeshadows, can you believe it?
I know that the bareMinerals Ready 8.0 Power Neutrals Palette has been out for a couple of months now, but if you have been thinking about this one I say it’s worth it IF you are in need of some great neutral eyeshadows. Although, I do think the price point is a bit high here in Canada, and that’s my only con about this palette. If it was priced at around $30-$35 CDN I’d say it’d be a MUST have, but $50 is a bit much for a palette of neutral eyeshadows, albeit REALLY NICE neutral shadows. I have been wearing it a lot though, so in the end it all depends on whether you’ll get your money’s worth out of it I say. So far, this has been my favourite eyeshadow palette this fall! Find it at Sephora!
So, what has been YOUR favourite eyeshadow palette lately? AND DON’T say Bon Etoile. Just don’t. You’re not allowed to-although I’ll let you write BT if you MUST.
