Last Chance Eyecolors - null
I am SO sad to see so many of my favorites on the last chance!
Joy is such a beautiful color and makes the eyes looks so sparkling and enchanting, then my love the soft focus Explore is a must have BASIC as far as I am concerned. I still have 1 1/2 left which will last me a while but it is the PERFECT shade, not red or orange to make the eyes look tired or blood shot, the perfect depth of color and matte! It is the perfect neutral shade that looks natural but deep enough to contour without looking obvious! The pale pink, I think called serenity, is one of my favorites and can be used, like the well rested, in SO many ways. There are so many others that I HOPE are not disappearing but just being reformulated or made into READY! It seems some of the BEST colors are on the last chance list! SO sad!
Well Rested is a Must Have!
Well Rested is perfection! Originally meant as an eye shadow color but works so well as eyelid concealer. You can apply color over it or wear it alone. Always a great value! I have used a few jars up over the years but it takes a loooong time! I haven't gotten to try the new 5in1s but the pics look like eye wearing Well Rested but in different solid matte colors? I am concerned to see WR here in the Last Chance section. They can't possibly be discontinuing...? Yikes!
So many choices!
I bought 10 of these the last time I was at the Outlet -- it is really amazing at how different these look based on the degree of layering/blending and whether they're applied wet or dry. So versatile and fun to mix and match. I always have a little trouble with the messiness of the loose powder pots, but these are so fun and there's so much in them that I don't mind a little spillage.
Last chance beauties- get them before they're gone
Banana Smoothie-an icy yellow sheen shade. This color goes on very pale with a slight sheen effect. Great color to place in the inner eye corner and near the brow bone to brighten your eyes.
Blue-ty Call- a sea spray blue, a matte shade. This shadow is perfect for anyone who has blue, green or hazel eyes.
King- a peachy sheen under the glimpse(sheen) texture family. This color has a slight sheen to go with the pale peach shade. You could also use it by dipping your gloss into this color and use it on your lips to bring out a sheen to your lips.
Oasis- a mossy clover shimmer shade. This green shadow is another color for blue eyes. If you don't like green by themselves then use it as a base then apply another color on top to lighten it up like City Lights or Banana Smoothie eye shadows.
Paradise- tangerine dream sheen. This shadow can be used alone or use along the brow bone or near the inner eye corners. All of BE shadows glide on easily and last throughout the day.
Peacock- golden peridot sheen. This color, for me, goes on dark so I use it mostly at night for going out on the town. I'm fairly light skin tone but for those that have medium to dark skin tones, you could use it as a daytime shade too. Just my personal opinion.
Salsa-hibiscus pink sheen shade. This shade glides on effortlessly on the pale side. Not a bright pink. I use it as a blush! Don't forget your pout spot on your lips!
Sun-tangerine silk matte. I don't use this color so much with my fair-light skin tone but it looks great on dark skin tones. I use it mostly in the summer when I have a great tan.
Well Rested- cream linen matte shade. When this first came out it was used as an eye shadow but now it's used as a concealer.
I hope this helps those who are on the fence but hurry before they're gone for good!
Eye color: Joy
Great eye color, is a very neutral shade with a hint of shimmer and some warm golden brown undertones. Imagine would go nicely with any skin tone.
Hummingbird Color - great color but not for me
I had to give it 5 hearts because there's nothing wrong with it, like the other eye colors it glides on gracefully and is a great product - it's just not the color for me. It's too peachy and I'm not into peachy, I like more earthy tones. I hesitated when I bought it because it said it was in the peach family but the picture made it look somewhat brownish too so I decided to try it. It's going back.
But it would be a great color for anyone who likes peachy colors, it's not a bright peachy, it's a dark peachy but peachy nevertheless!
I received a Sterling Silver eyecolor with my last purchase from Bare Minerals, and I have to say it is gorgeous! I wear fairly light in original in the winter, and in the summer I wear light in matte. I have gray eyes and brunette hair. I put Sterling Silver all over my eyelid yesterday and put Princess eyecolor on my brow bone, and that combination looked amazing against my gray eyes! The shimmer in Sterling Silver is very striking, and I didn't have any movement of the sparkles throughout the day.
Soft Focus Explore is awesome
This is listed as Soft Focus, but it's actually Soft Focus Explore for those who may be searching for it. Can't understand why this shade is being discontinued. It's a versatile medium brown color that doesn't have any reddish undertones to it. Perfect for a natural make-up look and a great crease color. It's also matte with no sparkles, so women of any age or any occupation can wear this.
It looks great in the crease with Peach Puff on the lid and Vanilla Sugar on the brow bone. I have been looking for a matte crease color that's natural looking and not too dark or harsh. This suits perfectly and can be dressed up or down. Drama is one of my favorite crease colors, but it has sparkles so isn't always appropriate. This is a fantastic alternative.
like the gold glints
This can be played up to be very dramatic or just used for a little emphasis. The gold flecks are nice.
Last chance colors
I'm reviewing multiple colors of the last chance colors. I have pale skin and use Fair Matte. That being said, if I don't like the color because of my pale skin and you have darker skin, you will probably love those colors.
Oasis (glimmer) - nice light moss green that is shiny. Maybe you can call it a yellow-green. I believe it is in the glimmer category. I really like using this color either alone or with Oz. It also looks lovely wet.
Reflection (matte) - great base color for paler skin tones. Matte and very light blue tint.
Energy (glitter) - didn't like this too much so I used it for eye liner. Very, very glittery and messy! I think mine wasn't full but I also lost some because this color is so messy. Almost used it all up due to this.
Mojito (glitter) - not crazy about this as even on my pale skin it does not show up much. I use it for a base instead. Probably looks better on tan or dark complexions.
Merlot (glitter) - definitely a glitter color and probably great for medium to dark skin tones. Bought as a gift that I can't give because my friend is allergic. I haven't made up my mind so haven't opened it yet. It is a very pretty purple-red color.
Graphite (matte) - bought this as a gift too, nice dark grey color. This should be nice for eye liner or on dark skin tones. I think it is too dark for me.
Serenity (matte) - I love this color! I can put it on lightly all over my lid or in the crease or put it on wet and heavy as a liner. This is a very versatile medium brown color.
