Brown Eyecolor - null
My favorite eyecolor!
I have had this eyecolor for about 2 years now, It has lasted me quite some time because you only need a little! I use it as an eyeliner, or a shadow, to create natural looks, or if going out a smokey look with browns. Recently I combined this with captivate as my inner lid color, and i mixed harmony with healthy radiance, and it made a beautiful brown, for my crease and outer lid. It have in a grand collection, so I am so happy to see that it is sold individually as well!
The perfect nude shade
Its slightly brown and slightly warm pink. I can wear it alone for a subtle shade or paired with a darker pink or brown for something more dramatic. This is a very versatile shade.
Clay - the wonder shadow
When I first tried Clay, I really didn't have much luck with it and it sat in my drawer for over a year until, on a whim one day, I decided to give it another try. I AM SO GLAD I DID! This time, I started with Bare Minerals primer (the original, sheer "nude" primer) and I used an eye shadow brush with slightly stiffer and more densely packed bristles.
I think it was both of those changes, but particularly using that specific brush, that led to my falling in love with Clay -- as another reviewer mentioned, the color seems to become more luminous with each brush stroke. A stiffer brush with natural hair (as opposed to the softer-bristled synthetics) is better for this one, because Clay needs to be "buffed" into the skin in order to truly appreciate it, and the softer brush I was using last year wasn't doing that.
I know Clay is listed with the brown shadows, but on me it's a light, very neutral-toned dove gray. The color is soft to start with but builds easily to get a striking, opaque look if you want something more noticeable. Absolutely gorgeous and would flatter many skin tones. Don't hesitate to pick this one up :)
This is a very pretty Neutral Glimmer that almost any age can wear and is a favorite I have used for many years! Great for every day or dressing up.
Im a BIG fan of eyecolors so my goal is to buy every color I started off with the NUDE BEACH and I loved it, I cant wait till my next shipment comes in. The NUDE BEACH is a smooth shimmer and I love the Foil effect with all the eyeshadows.
Great base color
This color is great as a base color to pair with any other color! It's so neutral & shimmery.
This shade is so pretty, and can mix well with just about any other colors. I don't like wearing a ton of makeup in the summer, so I like to mix it with a little water on my brush so that it goes on very sheer, almost to the point of barely being there. That with a little bit of liner or mascara and I am out the door!
Smooth, velvety color that pairs well with nearly anything. Pretty much an idiot-proof shade.
My sister got me this color for Christmas because "the woman at the store said it's the most popular," and after having it for a couple of months now, I understand why!
For starters, to describe the color...I would say it does look like a very tan colored sand, with maybe a hint of pink in it when the light hits it. It has a shimmer that looks overwhelming in the jar, but it tones down a lot when you apply it.
I've always been more of a white eyeshadow girl myself, having grey eyes, and I'd only venture over to nudes when they were definitively matte, just to even out the tone of my eyelid. So I wasn't sure what to make of this at first, but I had to try it before I judged it, so I put it on to wear around the house in case I didn't like it. Right away, I noticed that the shimmer is extremely subtle, you almost don't notice it unless you're looking for it. And seeing as it is a nude color, it works fantastically with most every outfit and social situation you could find yourself in. Even on days when I don't wear eyeshadow, I'll just dab it on the inner corners of my eyes (instead of using white eyeliner like they recommend), which really opens them up and brightens them a little more.
I wouldn't say it's a color to use if you're trying to make a statement, as it is a very subtle color, but for everyday wear it's an excellent choice, or if you aren't into wearing makeup and want to try something that isn't too bold, this would also be a great way to go.
Another 5-star product from bareMinerals!
LOVE OF MY LIFE : NUDE BEACH AND OTHER SHIMMERS!!
i love this shadow (nude beach) and all other shimmers.... i believe it looks amazing if you have a couple colors and put the darkest at the furthest corners on your eyelid and then the lightest on the brow bone and a semi- light or colorful one in the main crease and are of the eyelid. also if you wet your application brush it makes the shadow look like liquid metal, its absolutely gorgeous and it goes on so beautifully and is not cakey at all!!! i love this shadow and bare escentuals. i swear by it, (and the clarissonic) :) <3
