Bare Minerals Bare Sensuals Palette Review and Swatches



Exposed, Fortune, Shazam, Cloud Nine, Lure, Persuasion, Catalyst

Hard to Get, Indulge, Waltz, Hot Spell, Mystify, Ensemble, Upgrade







Bare Minerals has a new Rose inspired palette called "Bare Sensuals".

I picked mine up at Ulta over a week ago and haven't put it down since.

It has 14 shades total including 3 new shades;  Exposed, Persuasion and Catalyst. 

The market is so saturated with natural and nude palettes nowadays, so this palette is a nice surprise for spring and summer.

I love Bare Minerals ready shadows and these are the same great quality as the duo's.

The shadows are very pigmented, smooth, blendable and easy to work with without a ton of fallout.

The palette itself is a sturdy plastic and has a large mirror, which is always a plus on any palettes.

The shadows are made in the U.S.and the brush is made in China.

It also has a eye chart to show how to achieve 3 different looks ( great for a beginner).

Retail is $45.00, which a great value.

I highly recommend you check this palette out.

XOXO,

Vicki

Becca's Sunchaser palette was released last month, and I was pretty sure I was going skip it, that is until I saw it in store :)

The outside packaging has three different shades which actually represent the colors inside the palette.
A nice change from Becca's usual boring brown packaging.

The palette has three shades; Ipanema bronzer, Apricot Blossom blush and Opal skin finish. 

Becca has one of the best highlighter formulations on the market and the blush and bronzer are nice and smooth as well and all have great pigmentation.

I personally love all the colors in the palette they work great with my medium complexion.

Ipanema might be too warm for lighter skin tones but with light application it can still work.

Retail is $34.00

This is a nice compact size which makes it very travel friendly.

I got mine from Ulta.
