      Comments about bareMinerals Smoky & Sultry:

      Overall, I think this is a great deal! For $20, I feel like I got a lot of good quality products. The only reason it wasn't a full 5 stars for me is that I didn't like the brush it came with and there's a slight problem with the mascara. I don't want to scare anyone about the mascara, it's great; but since it isn't waterproof, I had a little bit of a smudging problem. I live in a place with high humidity, so after I walked outside and was in the heat for an hour or so, I noticed some black under my eye. I might try the waterproof kind if I can get it in a kit deal like this one. The brush with the mascara is really nice, I like the length it gives and how it really does define each lash individually. The brush it came with is really scratchy. I can't use it on my eyes, not even on my brow bone. Sultry is a very pretty light gold/pearly color. The Cocoa Cherry Truffle is a little hard to manage (can look muddy) if I don't take my time with it. I'm still trying to figure the best way to wear it but I do really like the color. The gloss that comes with it is a really pretty mauve but with a little bit of gold sheen? in it, I don't find it annoying or too sticky.

        Comments about bareMinerals Smoky & Sultry:

        This is a great value! Comes with two full size gorgeous eye colors that would cost more on their own than what this kit costs. I love every product in this kit. I love the gloss color and the brush. I'm not a big fan of lip glosses in general, but this is my favorite of the many I've tried. I get so many compliments when I use these eyeshadows. The colors all look good on me. Only complaint is the messiness. They stain the sink and god forbid some of the shadow falls on your face after you have done your foundation and you end up smearing it on your face. The colors last all day and don't crease like other eyeshadows do so that makes me happy. Still looks good at the end of the day. The colors aren't sold separately outside of this kit so I bought a backup set for myself. A coworker bought it after seeing my eyes so that is saying something. Make sure you follow directions with eyeshadow (swirl color onto brush, tap off excess and buff onto your eyes).

          Worth it for the brush alone! This is the best crease blender brush! I have the double sided brush from an older kit but wanted one I could stand up in a brush holder. The eye shadow is a bit dark but makes a great crease eye color. The mascara is my fav and the gloss is a nice extra.

          Comments about bareMinerals Smoky & Sultry:

          I'm not a makeup expert by any means, but I do have experience with mineral eye shadows. I found the light color to be a little too flaky and the dark one too red and too messy. I tried changing brushes to no avail. Maybe my skin tone is too light? I could consider part of thus user-error, though. And I adore the mascara and lip gloss--they alone are worth keeping the kit, I think. I just feel like I should take off one star for the messy eye shadow.

          I mean, I can to a successful smokey eye and cat eye with other brands--loose minerals or cake. And these included instructions. Still. I love the mascara! :)

              I love bareMinerals foundations, but this was the first time I used the eye shadow. I love it! If you follow the instructions included, it's very easy to put on and looks fabulous. It wears very well, no creasing or wearing off for me. The brush is perfect and really is key for getting good application. The mascara is nice, but nothing too special.

                For a women of color who doesn't often wear makeup, I love Bare Minerals. It looks natural and its subtle, yet easy enough to mix with other colors for a nice night look. I'm so excited to discover ulta and I love these value bare mineral kits. I'm a golden deep in the Bare Minerals foundation and these colors are awesome.

                  I picked up this set as a stocking stuffer for myself and had to open it right when I got home. It is such a great value - you get multiple full sized products for $20.00. I immediately used this set and fell in love with the chocolate cherry eye shadow. It makes my hazel eyes really pop! I loved this set so much that I went back to buy a few more. Every product in this package is a winner! I loved each of the eye shadows, the mascara (amazing product) and the lip gloss - all of them were beautiful! The only bummer? Is they did not package the brush in the wrapping with the other items and I accidentally threw the brushes away with the box!!! MAJOR BUMMER! Why they wouldn't put all the products in the wrapped tissue is beyond me! So, when you unpack your product - be sure to look for the brush separate from the wrapped items! All in all - this product is a winner even though I missed out on the brush :-( Boo.

                      I know better, but I keep trying to like Bare Minerals products. Unfortunately, I am always disappointed. This kit is no better. The mascara is terrible. It flakes and smears. I cannot say anything good about it. Th gloss is ok. The color is pretty, but it is sticky and does not stay on long. The shadows are my biggest disappointment. The colors look pretty in the jar, but when applied they are muddy. The dark color creases badly. Also, the brush I received is not the one in the picture above. Mine has a single end with the slanted shadow brush. No liner brush at all.

                      • Q:

                        I have never used loose powder on my eyes and I tried to follow the instructions and had no problem with the light shadow but the darker one I just couldn't get to come out right. At first it was too light but when I tried to build it up it got blotchy and I couldn't even blend it out. I ended up adding a nude shade on top to try to tone it down and even it out. Used UD primer. Would like this shadow to work, I think it is a beautiful color!

                          A:

                          The darker Cherry Coco Truffle Eyecolor is ideal to use to define the crease and contour the eye for the perfect smoky eye. Apply the lighter Sultry Eyecolor first as your base color before applying Cherry Coco Truffle. Ensure the Eye Shaping Brush's bristles are only lightly coated, and that you've tapped away any excess product, for the most even application.
