Rated 5 out of 5 by DravenBirdNerd Best Eyeshadows Ever!
I am a recent convert to Bare Minerals eyeshadows and products (early September 2016) and I have to say that nothing can compare to any of their wonderful eyeshadows. I have been searching for years for the perfect shadow that won't crease, lasts me a long time, and is easy to work with. I have found it! I love how blendable and buildable the colors are, and I love the range of colors.
I have always been partial to brown eyeshadows, though I do own a few non-browns, and the colors I have gotten in the brown category are gorgeous! So far I have gotten Wearable Brown Medium, Camp, Faux Mink, and S** Kitten in full size, and a mini Cocoa and Dark Chocolate (both matte) in the Thank You Gorgeous, You're So Sweet set during a flash sale. Wearable Brown Medium is a nice, subtle light brown matte shade perfect for all over the lid and I like to pair it with Faux Mink, a rich dark brown shade that reminds me of melted dark chocolate, in the crease and outer corner. Camp is a nice bronze, and I noticed that the description for Camp has it listed as a matte while mine is a shimmer (got that one at a boutique). S** Kitten is a shimmery coppery brown shade that I never want to run out of, I adore it that much! It really brings the blue of my eyes out. I hope it hasn't been discontinued, as it's not listed as I write this. Maybe it's a seasonal shade? I hope so because I would like to have this color in the future. And as for Cocoa, well, on my medium skin tone it looks like I have dusted cocoa powder on my eyelids, which I like, and it pairs nicely with the Dark Chocolate, another dark brown shade that is slightly different than Faux Mink (Faux Mink has a slight deep reddish tone to it). If Dark Chocolate came in a full size I would probably buy it, and I'm thinking of purchasing a full size Cocoa. I have ordered the color Java and cannot wait to get it! One last thing I would like to say is that the pictures don't do the colors justice; they are so much prettier in person!

I love all kinds of colors and shade for my eye shadows, but Pussycat is definitely my go-to color! It brings out the green in my hazel eyes, even though it seems more brown in the pot. Love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by StaceysPlace Wearable Brown-Medium .. sounds boring, but it's the BEST!!!
I love, love LOVE this color... I keep going back to it... I dip clear lip balm into it and use it on my lips, dab a bit on my nose and cheeks for a faux tan, and heck, i use it for an eyeshadow! It's a perfect matte, and a gentle brown. It looks great if I am tan or pale. I have tried every brown by every company, and always come back to my true love.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Nude Beach
I'd like to counter the previous review for Nude Beach. It's hands down the best nude bare minerals color. This is my favorite color for my pale skin and I love the shimmer. Please don't change it. It's the perfect eyeshadow. Sexy, subtle, and sparkly. This is the only eyeshadow I've ever finished and repurchased. It's definitely my color.

A few years ago I bought a "7 ways to Bare" collection. It contained Nude Beach Matte. This has been my favorite color. When I went to replace it I found that the current Nude Beach comes in a shimmer. Too sparkly for me to wear on a daily basis. Please bring back this shade in a Matte.

I received the shade Night Fall in a mystery bag that I ordered and it appears to be no longer available. It is a very rich dark brown shade and wears beautifully. It looks very similar to the darkest of brown shades in the photos. It wears very smoothly and lasts throughout the day. I would buy more brown shades!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Best eye-shadow ever!
I have had pebble and lightscape on my eyes for about 15 hours today and it looks the same as when I put it on at 6 this morning. I used well rested as a primer and it is fantastic. Also I have been outside for most of the day at 95 degrees and high humidity (Alabama) and all my BM makeup held up except the foundation on my forehead but the way I was sweating you can not blame that on the makeup. I am new to BM but absolutely hooked.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Shyla bareMineral eyeshadows are tricky, even w/ a primer. MIA by day's end.
bareMineral eye shadows are beautiful colors, but for my taste, the majority of their eye shadows are just too shiny, shimmery and glittery. Even the matte shadows are loaded with sparkle. A subtle presence is nice, even helpful, but the majority of the bareMineral eye shadows contain too much, in my opinion. As a younger woman, I would have felt comfortable wearing some of these shadows, but not so much now and I have been blessed to look about ten to fifteen years younger than I am, but I have decided to take a pass.

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
