High Shine Eyecolor - null
Made my eyes itch real bad
I bought 2 of these several years ago, but I had some reaction that made my eyelids itch, really bad. I should have sent it back for a refund, but I threw it away. It's expensive, and I haven't had any irritation problems with any of the other products. It was beautiful on, but I sure couldn't enjoy it with all the itching involved. :(
Beautiful colors, but a little messy.
I tend to stick to neutral colored eye shadows, so I decided to try patina. I love the color, but the applicator seems cheap and causes the color to get dusted all over my face. However, If you use your own brushes, it completely gets rid of the problem. I would definitely use a primer underneath these though.
Sorry that original shades are no longer available
I have a real problem with Bare Escentruals pulling product that I really love. The original color of this product was not even given a color name, but it is a light shell pink that looked great with everything. I am actually switching to a product from England manufactured by Boots - their No. 7 line because of the stability of product. Bare Escentuals gets you hooked on something you really love and then all of a sudden it is gone forever. Not happy!
Love the metallics!
These are wonderful eye shadows. One swipe across each lid and I'm done! It can get messy when 1st starting but once you get the application technique down you're all set.
Love the color!
I ordered Moonshine and Vapor, and they're great! Wish there was a golden type of color available. Vapor gives you a perfect smokey eye with some black liner and mascara. Moonshine is more like a soft pink with a lot of sheen to it. It's more shiny than glittery, as though the glitter was mixed in homogeneous rather than randomly sprinkled like most eye shadows.
Application process is easy, I like the built-in wand that comes with it. You do need to scrape off excess before application, or it will get everywhere. Probably best to wait to do any concealer or under-eye stuff until after you've applied this shadow. Very easy to remove with almost any eye makeup remover.
I'm giving it three stars because it's messy. I don't like that when I come home from work the shadow has migrated to my lower lid. I'm picky that way, I like my eyeshadow on my actual eyelid and I like it to stay there. But no matter what I seem to do, I have yet to find a remedy to this. I wish the Velvet Eyecolor line made some sparkly shadows rather than matte (don't let the pictures fool you), because I don't seem to have that problem with them.
love this eye shadow---have several colors and would buy more in a heartbeat....the one way to get the best look with these shadows is you must use the eye lid primer--it really gives these shadows so much depth!!
Everybody Needs at least One
First time I've used this and I love it. Goes on easily, never smears and last all day into the night. I ordered the Moonlight and looking for more colors. Blends great with other colors as for under brow and lower lashes. Try it - you will like it.
Quite lovely once you get the hang of it!
I've got several of these in various colors and love all of them. I personally think they're easier than the loose powder pots, but the applicator definitely has its limitations....which are easily solved by using a brush. I still have to use primer with these despite these being long-wearing, otherwise they crease in about 4 hours...though with a primer they last until I clean them off.
Multidimensional shine, low quality applicator
It's a really fine grade glitter that nicely represents a taupe color, like a darker color of my skin tone in indoor environments and has a plum and white glow in natural light.
The applicator is ridiculously clunky. Imagine trying to apply with an oversized foam applicator. It's ok, lifehack it with a brush!
Patina is not golden khaki - its dark green
This did not look like the photo or the description - its dark green.
