I don’t own very much from bareMinerals and to be honest, I prefer pressed powder everything over loose – generally speaking. However I am a lover of green so bought myself this set called Beauty Oasis:
So for £24 you get 3 eyeshadows – so thats £8 each. Not particularly cheap, not madly expensive.
The idea with this bareMinerals sets is that you have a guide as to how to apply it:
There are 3 shades, Nepture, a white infused with blue pearl, oasis, a mossy green and jade, a deep forest green.
Ooh – well they are stunning shades. I have tons of greens and yes, these are very beautiful. The white with the blue pearl makes it quite unusual and the mossy green is similar to Golden Olive (MAC pigment) but with a golder edge to it. The dark green is also very shimmery and pretty.
The colours look stronger than this in real life:
I can’t say this was a must buy for me – if you have seen my starsh pics then you will know I have every colour under the sun, but this is nevertheless a very very pretty set for anyone who adores greens. A bit of primer or water will help you get a stronger, long lasting colour.
Do I recommend this? Yes if you have the spare pennies or adore greens and want your classic forest and moss greens in one place.
You can buy this here for £24 from lookfantastic.com (free shipping).
