Most Helpful Positive Review Bring back Shantung loose eyeshadow
I?m writing because this is one of the best eye colors I?ve ever used and now you?re discontinuing it! I have called 2 boutiques and an outlet store and they are all sold out. There are some left online, but since I have been buying colors trying to get something close, I was hoping to exchange the ones I didn?t care for?
If the stores and outlets are all sold out, maybe it would be a good idea to rethink discontinuing this fabulous color???
Hooked on Shantung
Most Helpful Critical Review YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!
I have used Bare Mineral shadow (Cashmere) for years--it is the perfect color for me. I see that you no longer offer this color, in fact, I see very few colors that would suit me, since I am at an age that sparkles make me look like a clown. While trying to choose a replacement color, I found it impossible to tell if they are matte or high-voltage and would look silly on me. When I go into a Bare Minerals store I find that they cater to younger buyers and rarely even have a tiny pot of matte shadow stuffed in a drawer out of sight. Judging by your Question & Answer section I am not alone. We do not want a pallet since we only would wear one or two matte shades and eventually toss the sparkles! Please think of us--your older customers--since some of us have used your products for many years. I used to recommend your products highly, but now I'm disappointed in your treatment of us older users and the frustration of trying to find my old standby favorites.
Reviewed by 1844 customers BM loose eyeshadows are the best
Netterz13 from CA
I've been wearing BM loose eyeshadows for years; they beat any pressed eyeshadow hands down IMO. They're creamy and buildable, and once they're applied they stay on all day unlike pressed eyeshadows. I have over 50 colors in my collection. Some of the blues are a bit patchy but all the browns/taupes, plums, pinks, peaches are amazing!! I really wish they would bring back the liner shadows. They would blow you away with how pigmented and easy they were to apply. I'm really hoping they'll reconsider their decision to discontinue all their loose eye colors. It's a shame.
Received different eyeshadow than what I chose
BarbaraV7 from Sunnyvale, CA
Although I received a different shadow than what I had ordered, Cultured Pearl is a beautiful eyeshadow (nice iridescence).
I Love it and will keep buying it.
Mary from Concordia, ks
Love this product........
One of my all-time favorites!
Kendall from Crestview, FL
I have this in Celestine and Nude Beach. I wear Celestine just about every single day to work and I get compliments on it all the time! It's beautiful on its own or on top of other colors. Nude Beach is beautiful too, I just don't wear it as often because it's a little lighter than I like to wear day-to-day. I really think these will always be a staple in my collection! Highly recommend.
I love bare minerals shadows but hate the containers
Jessica from NC
Back in the day the eyeshadow container was double what it is now. I pay the same for half the product .....from a business standpoint I get it but it's greedy so even though your eyeshadow is my favorite I buy it less often because I'm not made of money.
I guess i mis - read the color its too light for my liking
katherin29! from Philadelphia
I thought it looked more goldish on the photo, its actually whiter then my very light foundation on my pale skin so unfortunately this shade doesn't work too well for me. I was looking for something more warm and sparkly. I wish i didn't lose my money on this.
Love the color and coverage
Kdh from Cedar City, UT
This eyeshadow is the perfect color that I have been looking for. It goes on so nice and stays looking fresh all day long.
Jenlove76 from Dayton
This eyeshadow is beautiful! You do need to wear an eyeshadow primer with it though.
Love the loose shadows!
Marissam from Wisconsin
I used to use only bare minerals loose eyeshadows and then for the past couple years tried other types. I don't know why I stopped! They're seriously the best. I've never used a bad shade and they actually blend well. And they last forever! Wish Ulta carried more colors!
Use this as my base shadow.
Miki from Milwaukee WI
This is an awesome shadow - just make sure you don't spill it. It's soft and buildable. I have used it for years - hope they never discontinue it.
Shellyn from Columbus, OH
This is my favorite eye shadow! I wear it everyday. It can be a light shimmer and add a little more and the color darkens with shimmer.
Cake Killer from Cleveland Ohio
I wish they offered more colors.
Better than expected
Mickeymotto from Pittsburgh, PA
It goes on easily and stays on longer than expected. Pleasantly surprised and pleased.
Love this so much I bought it again
Sterlingwoman from Santa Rosa
It's the perfect color for my green eyes but think it would look great on any color eye.
Melanie from Bishop
A very pretty subtle shimmer, though it is a bit lighter than I expected.
Still haven't come across a Bare Minerals dud...
JennSparkles from Portland, Or
The shade Queen Phyllis is a beautiful soft gold that is absolutely beautiful as a highlight for brow bone and inner corners, high points of the face or even added into body lotion. Bare Minerals products are just great quality and there are so many shades and finished that it's impossible to not be able to find something great. Every product I've tried has been a winner. (And I've tried A LOT.)
I would buy again for the price
Grace from Galena, MO
I will need to return because the color is darker and browner than it was when I tested it in the store.
Love the color and the product!
redrobyn from Palm Springs, CA
What is always so amazing about Bare Minerals loose eyeshadow, is how economical it is! It lasts for so long! It also is a micro powder that never accentuates the small lines around the eyes. You must try it to believe it! All of Bare Mineral's products are like this! This particular color, Soul, is a beautiful, gleamy, celestial color with a very slight yellow/golden base. It is so beautiful as a highlighter. Try it both under your brow and in the inner corner of your eye. Gorgeous!
Makeup Minimalist from Arcata, CA
A friend had a great gold BM eyeshadow, and I thought this was it. This one is almost white. It's fine if that's what you're going for, but it's not what I wanted.
Love the color and it lasts forever
Txgirl1962 from Houston
Use with another light color
Shine all day!
Charjean from Utah
I love this eyeshadow! I use it to bring out the other colors I blend and it does a fabulous job! It has just the right amount of shine and blends so well! I'll keep buying this product!
NVDenise from Reno, NV
So sad the choices have been reduced to just a few. I love this color for a neutral look.
vanessakay88 from Des Moines, IA
Celestine is my favorite eyeshadow! I use queen Phyllis as a highlighter. Lasts all day, I do use the bareMinerals prime time eyeshadow primer.
Rlej from LC LA
I had been wearing another high end brand eye makeup for years and all of a sudden it starting irritating my eyes and causing a rash. Decided to try bare minerals. Have been using a week and so far so good.
Best Shadows ever!
Rachel from Lumberton, NJ
Bare Minerals shadows are the best quality out there. Highly pigmented, easy to apply lightly or blend or build for drama. This shadow is versatile and lovely. The loose powder can be messy, but a little clean up is worth it for the kind of payoff these shadows give.
