Brown Eyecolor - null
so for me this eye shadow, because it has shimmer, is not good for my eye lids. I find the shimmery shadow settle into fine lines and wrinkles making the eyes look old and tired. it may work well with a more youthful skink type
Chic nude is the best
I have been using bareescentuals for a couple of years now. I love this eyeshadow. I'm in my 60's now and don't use as much as I did when I was younger. The matte texture of chic nude is perfect for me. I usually buy two at a time. I don't want to run out, as I did once. It does last a long time. I plan on trying some of the other matte colors soon. I like the lighter shades offered.
Try this trick for keeping loose shadows where they belong!
I love all my Bare Minerals products, precisely because they are pure and not bound together with other chemicals. They can get messy when you throw them into a travel bag, however. A friend gave me this tip: Put a cotton ball in the container before you screw on the top (about a half ball works best for small eye shadows), and all of your loose shadows will stay where they belong! Problem solved!
I have recently tried this eye shadow. Even as an older woman I just love the way it feels on my eye lids and the way it feels going on. Thank you bareMinerals for this wonderful product. Just ordered another 2.
Nude Beach shimmer
I bought Nude Beach and LOVE it! It is a great shimmer color that I use as a base coat and also at the inner corners of my eyes. It really opens them up and makes them look bigger. Such a pretty color for layering too.
This brightens and opens the eyes. Be careful with all of the sparkle. It can get messy. It adds a beautiful, natural shine to any look.
Beautiful Melodie Eyecolor
Beautiful Melodie is a beautiful shade for brown skin. I thought that Beautiful Melodie would be too orangey. Not at all! It is a great color for brown skin. It adds a glow to the face that is just perfect. I blended in a bronze color shadow on the ends of my eye lid with the Beautiful Melodie and it's really great.
loose eye color
Great pigmentation and application. My one and ONLY complaint with the BE loose eyeshadows is that they need to adopt the locking lid on these as if you travel with the eyecolor, it is an absolute mess when you open it up since you cannot control what comes through the shaker holes.
I LOVE this color. I receive 3 colors every 3 months with the beauty renewal, and i've collected around 20 shades so far.. but I ALWAYS go back to celestine! This is the perfect light brown/pewter/shimmer color.. just enough shimmer! I am a nurse, and I wear this to work all the time, it's enough to look put together, but not "over done" for that environment. I also pair it with "Drama" for evenings out.
My skin color is "fairly medium" and the brown almost blends exactly to my tone, so in some lights, it looks like i am only wearing tinted shimmer.. there is no defining line of shadow/bare skin.
PS. I need to order more. now :)
I have many brown eye colors and I love them. They always look classy & natural and can go seamlessly from day to night.
Nude Beach--My absolute favorite. I always have at least one unopened spare on hand. BE--I would appreciate an email warning if you ever retire this color so I can stock up. This is perfect for my fair skin (I wear fair and fairly light original foundation)--I can sweep this on and it blends in seamlessly to my own skin tone and evens it out as it adds shimmer. This is almost like wearing nothing.
Grace--Like wearing a hint of color. This also blends in very well and is great for early mornings when you want to look put together, but don't want people to know you woke up early to look good.
Celestine--One of my favorites. Perfect medium shimmery brown. I love to wear this out on low key evening outings.
Moss--Super Versatile. This almost looks like a shimmery, light charcoal gray on me and I LOVE it! I use this when I really want to grab attention on a night on the town. My favorite combo with this is Water Lily all over the lid, Moss in the outer corner & crease and Lust in the inner corners. Blend well and rake in the compliments.
