Blown away by Bare Minerals

Blown away by Bare Minerals

Hello Lovelies,

Have you ever loved everything from a certain brand and then they’ve brought something new out and you’ve hated it?
That’s what I was worried about with the Bare Minerals READY range. A new line of pressed powders, blushes and eyeshadows.

I was very dubious of whether they would live up to the high standard of the Bare Minerals loose products as I am a big fan and of course their skincare is exceptionally good as well. It could have gone either way really, couldn’t it? I have been hesitant to order any of the Ready line until I could get to a counter and have a play.

Now don’t let me mislead you, this post isn’t all doom and gloom. Last night I finally got to have a closer inspection of the READY line and OH.MY.WORD. I cannot begin to explain how pigmented and buttery soft the eyeshadow quads I tried were. Even the white, which is quite often a hard colour to pull off, pigmentation wise, was just gorgeous and bold.

My favourite has to be the The Soundtrack 4.0 eyeshadow quad and The Top Shelf 2.0 eyeshadow duo. The colours, depth, finish and quality just truly blew me away. It was love at first swipe!

The Soundtrack 4.0 quad

Priced at £29 for the quad and £19 for the duo, which is a LOT more than I was expecting but now that I have seen the quality for myself, I can say the eyeshadows are worth every penny. A little will go a very long way so they will be long lasting.

For convenience, as I travel a lot, I never take any Bare Minerals loose products away with me but now I can, from the Ready range!

I must admit though, I found the blushes to be a little bit underwhelming, but that’s probably more down to my own personal preference of liking bold blushes that you need a light hand for, rather than building a subtle colour up. 6 and 2 three’s really I dare say!

Keep your eyes peeled for some colour swatches coming soon of the eyeshadows!

Have you tried the new Ready range? Do you prefer loose or pressed products?

    Love the eyeshadow, not to impressed with the powder or blusher which is a shame as the loose versions are amazing!

    I have to cover my nose and mouth when I lean over the counter to browse after an unfortunate sneezing episode 😉

    The quad looks amazing, such gorgeous colours! I prefer pressed products just because I am quite messy when let loose with loose pigments 🙂
