bareMinerals Work, Weekend, Wow Eyeshadow Palette REVIEW

11 July 2015

I've been debating on picking up this particular palette for a while and finally bit the bullet! I accidentally sold myself on it while selling it to a customer, no joke. Considering the READY® eyeshadow 8.0 palettes are $40 for eight shadows and the duos are $20, getting seven shadows for $26 seems like a great deal. I always love the READY® shadows, I have amassed a decent chunk of them at this point, and I reach for them frequently. I just wasn't sure if I would actually use this, mostly because at this point I have so many eyeshadow palettes. Obviously, this didn't stop me!

Product Rundown

Description || With seven ultra-silky, long-wearing eye shadows, this palette's expertly coordinated shades create gorgeous eye looks for work, weekend, and wow in three easy steps. Sweep on the universal base shade, then get business chic in classic neutrals, rock the weekend in soft plums or turn heads in smoky hues. With steps for each look included inside, on-the-go glam just got effortless.
Colors || One palette option. Shadows included: 500 Thread Count (airy pink), Fuze (cinder smoke), Trench Coat (matte camel), Rowdy (heathered plum), Custom Made (pink quartz pearl), Starstruck (brushed metal), and Nightfall (brilliant cobalt).
Price || $26 ($50 value).
Size || 5g/0.17 oz.
Where to buy || Bare Escentuals, Ulta, and other Bare Escentuals retailers.
Initial thoughts || This palette is super streamlined and compact. However, it comes in a magnetized cardboard container, without a mirror, so it might not be the most travel-able even though it is incredibly lightweight. The colors are coordinated in duos in an vertical fashion and there is a look guide so it is user friendly.
Would I repurchase? || Yes!

I'm a fan of the READY® color product formula, both the cheek products and also the eyeshadows. They're blendable, not overly powdery, and decently pigmented. They claim to wear for up to 12 hours and I feel as though they do wear well, although they will wear longer over a primer or base. This palette has a nice mix of good neutral basics, a couple of rosy tones, and a bright pop of color that doesn't come off garish or too overwhelming so this will be a good palette for those who like to dabble in a variety of more natural looks. None of the shadows are too dark or intense which means that I would still mix in other shadows, but not everyone feels the need to smoke out their eye looks on the daily!
