Rated 5 out of 5 by colorcandy LOVED the light VELVET MATTES and the Light Velvet colors
I used to use the Chenille loose as a concealer because the Bisque looked too gray and off on me. I found the Cream Velvet and the Velvet mattes and loved them, I also used to use the Vanilla sugar loose and now it seems all the loose great basics are on last chance! I loved the Velvet Cream and the Vanilla Velvet and am so sad to see they are leaving. It makes me wonder what will be left. There are not many, IF any, of the loose, especially of the great light colors that were SO great as a base or for mixing left anymore! I hope that some are brought back!

I bought this product and tried it on, I looked like I had been crying. But did not want to throw it out, so I mixed it with nude beach and loved it. A light shimmer pink with dark pink tones beautiful. Then I mixed it with True Gold and got a rose gold color. Love it! just proof that if you purchase a product on line and then it doesn't look good on you , you can mix with some other colors from BM and make a total new color that everyone will comment on.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Katherinecw2 best eyeshadow ever
I literally couldn't believe my eyes when I swept this shadow on. I got the violet velvet and it went on so smoothly and covered more completely than any shadow I've ever used. No more digging and mining trying to get some product on the brush. It was such a vivid color and it stayed all day. I immediately went back to the store and bought more. It really helped my green eyes to show up. I'll never use anything else, except I might try different colors of the same product. Thanks so much for making this!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Faireycat Great for everyday!
I ordered this velvet colors in a set during a sale at one time.
I wasn't sure if I'd like them, but I do!
They aren't glittery at all! Which is great for a Thirty-Something in the workforce.
I want to look polished at work, not sparkly!
These colors offer color with out the flash! Which I find great for everyday wear.
I often wear these to work and them 'Top Off' when I get home for a night out.
Love these! I will be buying more once my stash runs low!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mystic13 Pleasantly Surprised
After reading some of the other reviews, I was hesitant to order these but I thought I would be optimistic since I've never ordered a Bare Minerals product that I wasn't happy with. I first purchased these in the Velvet Delights collection which came with vanilla, pecan, strawberry, pistachio, lilac and blueberry.
I knew they were going to be matte, and I was okay with that because I just wanted something fun but professional to wear to work. I love love love LOVE the strawberry and pecan. EVERYTIME I wear this combination, someone literally says this phrase to me "Your make-up looks perfect today!" I use the pecan over my entire lid, then the strawberry in the crease, and the vanilla for corners and as a brow highlighter. That combination is 100% my go-to look because it is simple and stunning...especially if you add a little mascara.
Now the pistachio I was less than thrilled with...with my tan skin it would either blend in, or give my eyelids an eerie, creepy, ghost-like look. The lilac is just okay, mostly because I have to put so many layers on for it to show up on my skin. But I use it on my lid and the blueberry on the crease for a nice, more cool-toned look. I absolutely cannot wear the blueberry over my entire lid. It is too dark and heavy, and makes me look like someone punched me in the eye. I am NOT a fan of super-heavy dark eye make-up. I even had my light-skinned sister try it, and she had the same problem. But the pistachio and the lilac look absolutely gorgeous on her with her light skin and greenish-blue eyes.
Long-story short, I will forever be ordering pecan and strawberry because I'm absolutely in love with them :)

by TXGinger Very very disappointed
I just recently received this product in the mail and I was severely disappointed. I had ordered the velvet pecan shade because I thought it was a rich and glittery color, like it shows in the product picture. However, when it came in, I actually compared it to my face makeup and it was simply a few shades darker. The velvet pecan shade doesn't have any glitter in it and I would actually compare it to the shade and consistency of dirt. I was shocked to go back and look up the picture of the product I thought I had ordered. The picture and the reality couldn't be more different and I'm very unhappy with the product I received in the mail.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TexasCC Love the Velvet Cream
I'm a fairly light in the original foundation and the velvet cream shadow works wonderfully. I love to use it as an overall eye base and to brighten those areas that I want brightened too. This product could probably work nicely for most skin tones. I will have to try the other colors because the vanilla is the first one I've ordered from the velvet line. I am sure I will find many that I will love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SpecialK Velvet Cream
I bought the Velvet Cream eye color and I love it. I always have to have a light color to highlight under my brow and sometimes as a base for other colors and this fits perfectly into my needs! These kind of colors are great for those of us with medium skin and dark hair.
It's kind of like a very light vanilla color. I love that it's matte (because I don't always want sparkles) and it glides on with ease as all of the other colors I've tried so far. I'll probably get a couple more containers so that I have a long-term stock of it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by astrosmom Velvet "matte" eye colors
I loved these velvet matte eye colors when they first appeared as a set of 6 in 2 different collections on QVC. The Velvet Delights & The Velvet Luxe eye color collections. Some of them are great as a lip color or even as a blush. I'm happy they are offered in the .57gm size jars.
