Most Helpful Positive Review Great as a Travel Palette
Packaging is very sleek! I love the texture of the outside, it feels almost velvety— as soon as I opened the palette I was rubbing the palette again the side of my cheek. So in terms of texture, I love it! It's a simple black design with a decently sized mirror, so no complaints here.
Color Payoff: ✩✩✩
Colors aren't too intense. You need makeup setting spray or eyeshadow gel on your makeup brush to really make it pop. Can't say Im impressed, BUT I will say, this brand is catered more towards adults who might love natural looks, so maybe the color payoff is like this on purpose?
Color Selection: ✩✩✩
All of the colors are metallic, so it's hard to blend in sometimes. The dark brown and the black look metallic in pan, but not so metallic once you apply it. However, the color differences are way too different to achieve a smooth, blendable look without using help from another palette. I wanted this to be a palette that ties everything together without needing anything else.
Colors faded little by little throughout the day. If I stay in an air-conditioned room the entire time, then it's SOLID. However, I put it through the gym test and the colors became lacking.
Overall, I was able to create an entirely natural look with the palette alone, with no additional makeup from my collection. I think this is very handy as a travel set, especially if I'm traveling on a business trip. I can touch up my skin and eyes with natural makeup that will make me look more awake and professional. I feel like this palette is better for those in a working profession since the color payoff is not intense, but very soft and light. Some people would say the eyeshadows are lacking since the colors aren't strong, but I feel bare minerals is a makeup brand that's targeted towards adults who love going for a natural look. I wouldn't use it everyday, but I'll keep it in my travel bag at all times because I know it's the only palette I need!
Most Helpful Critical Review Good and creamy if you don't mind using your hands
I wanted to love this. PROS- ZERO fallout, very buildable from virtually nothing to well pigmented. Doesn't come off so don't accidentally touch other parts of your face. CONS- felt it was a pain to put on and virtually impossible to blend. First- I don't like to touch my makeup and this will not go on with a brush. If you "swipe" it with your finger- all the product ends up in a small spot. You do have to bounce it on with a finger and once it's on- there isn't really much time to blend it. The Evening Star (peachy champagne color) I thought was pretty but I had to put 7 layers on before it was even visible at all- and I mean under high makeup light. I normally wear a combination of purple and black eyeshadows so I was excited to try the Purple Twilight (rich plum). This is easier to get a more natural graphite colored lid from than the cream eyeshadow I usually use. I accidentally touched my cheek with the Purple Twilight and it wouldn't come off without makeup remover. The third or fourth time I used this I tried a smudger brush and got a bit more blendablity but with a lot of drag. Eyes all Bareminerals Bounce In Warm. Blush: Bareminerals Bounce in Mauve Suprise. Foundation is [product:pat-mcgrath-labs-skin-fetish-sublime-perfection-foundation] Lip is [product:anastasia-beverly-hills-liquid-lipstick] in Poet.

I love the Bounce & Blur collection. I have both palette selections and mix the colors up from both palettes. The texture of the shadows is kind of like a gel feel that you can put on with your finger or a brush - I do both. The color stays true all day long, more so than powder eyeshadows to me. I enjoy the Bounce & Blur shadows so much that I just ordered the B&B blush also.
Harley from Pittsburgh
I'm someone who has a collection of so many different palettes but this baby is hard for me to put down. It's simple, yet everything I need. When I'm running late for work, I can create a beautiful look with just my fingers in the car mirror and I appreciate it so much.
Easy and beautiful
Rose from San Jose, California
Since I've become chronically ill I've become all about the easy and minimal effort. This fits the bill. 2 day shadows, one evening and two that work best as liners. 3 out of 5 ain't bad. Dab your finger in the pot and tap it onto your lid, boom done. Perfect
Beautiful but incomplete
Haley from Seattle, WA
I love this palette because it is beautiful and pigmented and it can be used for so many different looks but it's missing a good transition shade so I need a different shadow or palette to complete this look. That doesn't bother me but it might bother others.
the packaging !!
nayrocknthebeat from Santa Maria , ca
First of all the packaging on this is amazing ! It feels super luxurious because it is soft touch , also I love the warm colors in the eyeshadow palette. I love a more dramatic eye & was afraid the color pay off wasn't going to be what I wanted but when I applied the shadows with my finger they went on amazingly !
I would recommend!
Belen from Mission, Texas
I receivd this product complimentary for testing purposes. Once i opened the pallette i loved it. The shadows are easy to use and blend.
Meg from Pittsburgh PA
I am a huge fan of the colors in this palette, especially getting into fall time. They all have a really rich pigment and are very high quality. The point of this product is that it is "finger-tip" friendly and can be applied without brushes, that part took some trial and error and in the end I just ended up using my brushes to get the look that I wanted.
The perfect day-to-night palette!
Natalie from Sacramento, CA
Bounce & Blur is the perfect palette for day-to-night looks. The colors are very buildable & blendable (I preferred using a brush) and the texture is smooth & creamy. Best of all, the earthy tones look amazing on tan skin. (I have yellow undertones for reference.) I do wish there was a non-metallic base color to give the option for a more neutral look, but I tend to mix palettes anyway. As for longevity, it performed well over a full work day.
Unrelated to product performance, I love the packaging — the sleek shape and creamy matte black texture looks high end & chic. Overall, I highly recommend this palette for day to day wear.
I would buy again
Ana from Chicago, Il
This product is really nice and soft. The eyeshadows are buttery and easy to use and blend with your fingers. The pigmentation is more for people who Iike natural looks because their isn't a lot of pigmentation!
Rose from Bay Area, CA
I only started using eyeshadows not long ago so I usually only wear one shade so al of these shades, I can use all of them, no problem.
Jennie from Pittsburgh, PA
The colors of this are really pretty and look just as gorgeous on! The only thing that threw me off was the texture of the eyeshadow because it seemed like a powder but was also kind of like a cream, so I would have preferred for it to be just a powder. It stays on well throughout the whole day though and the colors blend together well! I got this product for free to try and give my honest opinion.
Meg from Binghamton NY
This product was a nice palette. Do I own better? yes. This is a nice palette for people looking for a simple palette for a smokey eye. Very nice packaging. My only con is the color pigmentation once applied on eyes. I would recommend a sticky base and wet some colors.
Taryn from Richmond, Ky
Overall this palette is ok. The colors are pretty, but I felt it was just missing something. They are easy to blend though so if you prefer more of a neutral light eye maybe this would work for you. I thought the color pay off wasn't up to par of that from some competitors, it just wasn't a palette for me.
I did receive this item for free for testing and reviewing purposes.
GG from Florida
This eyeshadow palette is a cool concept but it just didn't work out for me. Good for everyday and only if you use one or 2 colors. All the shades have some type of shine to them, but it doesn't always apply that way. I used a brush a my finger, but these shadows just weren't for me. I did receive this palette complimentary for reviewing purposes.
Ehhh not worth the hype
Nfehr from Ohio
I wanted to love this eyeshadow palette. The texture is different, not quite a cream, but soft and bouncy. It's made to be applied with your finger which is nice as a busy mom to quickly swipe on. I have a hard time blending with my finger though. Unfortunately I didn't find the shadow to be very pigmented either. I will probably use the shadow some, but it's not something I will buy again or recommend. I received this product complimentary for testing purposes.
A hit but a miss
Vuhnessa from Ridgewood NY
I think the color payoff was good, upon initial swatching. The texture was not what I expected, bouncy but firm. I found myself using only the gold and red shade, as the others didn't compliment my olive skin tone. It's best used with your finger! And since there are no mattes, I always had to use another palette alongside.

For Artist at Any Level
Maia from Los Angeles, CA
High quality product (easy to apply; can use a finger and apply a small amount and see the color). I created looks using only two or three colors. The looks that it makes are very soft and light, perfect for day time wear. Make up artist at any level can use the shadows with ease. The colors stay on for long wear even without setting spray. It looks beautiful on warm dark brown skin. I especially like that the ingredients are gluten free. The packaging is small and compact which protects the colors from being damaged. It fits into any size purse or pocket!
Ari from Fort Worth, TX
I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review. I loved this product! The colors glide on so smoothly and blend really well! The gold looks best applied with the finger tip. I will be buying this again.
Hkillion from Flint, mi
I loved this palette! The colors are perfect for fall and the color payoff is great! I apply with both brush and my fingers, resulting in a creamy blend with bold color! I wish there was a true matte option, but otherwise I recommend!
Cute and compact

Great for quick on the go color for fall or night looks
Amberd from South Carolina
I love this pallet! It goes on smoothly and lasts all day. It has the prettiest colors. I applied with an applicator, but fingers work well too. I loved making a smoking eye look. I would definitely recommend!
By far my favorite eye shadow!
Tia from Lincoln, NE
It is easy to blend with your normal eyeshadow brushes! The colors are bright and a little goes a long way!
I would buy this product again
shellyc2 from Virginia Beach, VA
I loved this eye shadow palette. Normally I wouldn't choose such dark shades because I have blue eyes and fair skin, but these colors really made my blue eyes pop. I applied the shadow with a brush and had no problems with its pigment and loved that it lasted all day! I received this product complimentary for testing purposes.
Emily from Covington Ky
I was just so unimpressed with this which broke my heart!! No matter how much I dug at the palette, I was getting zero color payoff nor pigmentation. Even what I did get onto my eyes was gone by lunch. ;( I received this free for testing purposes.
Leslie from Huntsville, AL
Absolutely loved this palette, it's definitely a go to in my make up bag.
