by SilverFox BareMinerals 5in1 cream eyeshadow accentuates wrinkles
BareMinerals 5in1 cream eyeshadow made my dryness and wrinkles look worse. At first it applied as a smooth cream. As I smoothed it out with my fingertip it was soft as a cloud. A few minutes later it appeared as if it was sitting on the high points of my wrinkles. It refused to blend into the crevices. It started to look very flaky and chalky. I applied MAC eyeshadow (Cork and Embark) along inner and outer corners of upper eyelid.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Great color and eyeshadow base
I love the Rich Camel. I have medium olive skin and this color is awsome as a neutral skintone base. My eyeshadows blend easier and lasts all day. The other colors were just too light for my skintone. However, the packaging needs to improve. The product drys out quickly so I have to pop off the plastic "gasket", at the opening of the bottle, then scoop out product with a slim wooden popcicle stick.

I've used this product for more than a year now and I love it. My co-workers constantly whine about how my eye make up stays on all day and theirs melts away. I have very oily skin and after a nine hour day at work, my make-up looks almost as fresh as it did when I first put it on. I haven't experienced any of the cakey results a previous review said.
I've only tried two colors: linen and barely nude. I prefer barely nude.
Rated 3 out of 5 by angepoo Too shiny
When we get older, it's best to stick to matte shadows, and I so wanted these to be matte. They aren't as shiny as BE's mineral shadows, but they have enough shine, which combined with the dry-down that looks like parched clay, really shows all the imperfections in ones eyelids. Too bad, the colors are very nice.

I bought 3 of these after reading reviews and being told I would love them. I wish I did. Even when applied with a lighter blush these are far to heavy and only create a caking effect. Does color stay on- yes, but it's like wearing a heavy mask on your eyelids and it gets very flaky as the day goes on. Good concept, not so good result.

Fabulous smooth finish that lasts all day. My eyes have never appeared brighter. Love this product!
Rated 3 out of 5 by LowMaintenancePreferred Enjoyed While It Lasted
I ordered this product in Candlelit Peach, and loved it as a base eye color. I did not find it to hold shadow well as a primer, however I could layer one color over it easily (I would use the 5-in-1 under my eyebrows, and a different color on the lid itself). The color is neutral enough to be a base color, while providing a bit of shimmer to look elegant. I enjoyed it very much for a few months.
I did find it to dry out pretty quickly - the smooth liquid texture that I loved so much turned into a cakey paste in about three months (I don't wear makeup all the time, so I had only used about half of the container at this point). I also agree with reviews that say it is hard to get the last of the product out of the glass container with the wand - an unfortunate situation when you pay so much for such a small container.
I did love this product while it lasted, but probably won't buy it again.

I was skeptical to try this new product, as often when something gets changed, it is NOT better...this stuff is AWESOME!!! I love the colors, it is easy to put on and actually stays put ALL DAY. I am the oiliest person I have ever met and I can get through a 9 hour work day plus a few more night time hours with this stuff. Plain or with eyeshadow on. BareMinerals, you gals ROCK!
Rated 4 out of 5 by shinning Great product
This is the best of all the primers for my eyes. I have sensitive eyes and had no problem with this product. I have purchase 3 and truly love the way it glides on and allows power shadows without caking. The only negative is that it dries out way too fast.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KristinH Eyes need protection too
This is such an easy to use product and it gives your eyes SPF protection. How much better can it get? Not sure but I am going to use this until the BM developers find it. I love being able to protect the skin on my eyelids and have great color - people never think of sunscreen for your eyes and lips - both such important areas. Thanks for this product.
