My Thoughts:
This palette is so incredibly lovely. Bare Escentuals has done it right with this bareMinerals The Playlist pressed palette. The shadows are pigmented and incredibly blendable. They are longlasting on the eyes as well. I love the combination that bareMinerals put together for this palette. It makes for an array of rich, gilded, warm eye looks. And the brush!'s rare when I actually like a brush that comes with a palette but this one is lovely. The shader end is perfect for packing on color and blending, while the pencil end is great for the outer V and a smokey bottom lashline.

Perfect for the holiday season...for yourself or a gift!

I definitely foresee using this often.

Pumped, the top left shadow in the palette is a total dupe for NARS Galapagos!

Bare skin, no base

Concealer as base


  1. Wow, they still look great without a base! These colours kind of remind me of Christmas for some reason. This palette also looks purse size, nice!

  2. I really like how your reviews are very straight to the point! Thanks for the swatches!

  3. How do these wear? I tried one of the pressed quads from them and within two hours the eyeshadow had worn off.

  4. The Lacquered Lady...I've worn them 3 times so far. All with Too Faced Shadow Insurance as a primer and as a base over TFSI: once with a NYX Jumbo Pencil, once with concealer, and once with MAC Painterly Paintpot. All three times they've worn beautifully. I always use a primer and a base for every eye look I do. I find it's best for both pigmentation and longevity.

  5. oh they look absolutely gorgeous! beautiful colours for autumn as well ^^ must give them a try ^^d

  6. This is so pretty! What a great combination of colors.

  7. I think this is going to be my go to palette for every holiday party I go to. The colors are just perfect!

  8. Beautifulllllllll! What a nice shade! OMG! Awesome! ♥
