Review & Swatchfest: bareMinerals Ready 4.0 Eyeshadow Palette in The Happy Place


bareMinerals Ready Palette in The Happy Place

bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadows aren't new to the world of beauty, but they are definitely new to me. I've used their loose pigments and, while I didn't like the concept of loose minerals and the mess they make, the color selection and pigmentation kept me coming back for more. Luckily, they've found a way to maintain the same quality and pigmentation and pack it into a pressed powder.

bareMinerals Ready 4.0 Eyeshadow Palette in The Happy Place has a color selection that seems light and subdued, but packs a serious pigment punch when you get down to it. Peace is a matte light flesh tone, Exhale is a matte deep taupe,  Imagine is a light metallic copper with larger shimmer (although it's described as rose gold), and Euphoria is a deep eggplant with smaller shimmer than that in Imagine. Regardless of finish, each shade is smooth, pigmented, not powdery in the least, and didn't take much working with to achieve the look below. All of the colors work together to create anything from a soft, daytime look, to a super smoked out night look. The blend of matte, satin, and shimmery textures is another great feature of this palette because there is a little something for everyone. The only limiting factor with this palette might be how warm Imagine is - it will look beautiful on deeper skin tones, but those with cool, fair skin might want to watch out.

The Happy Place retails for $30 and will be worth it to someone who wants a high quality everyday palette than can go from day to night. I certainly recommend it for the shadows' buttery textures and stellar lasting time, and hope to pick more up product in the Ready line soon!
