I have been resisting the urge to buy the bareMinerals pressed shadows but with the generous $20 off from Sephora , I decided to take the plunge . I opted for the The Star Treatment palette which is the most neutral of their 8.0 palettes .
Lets look at the shadows one by one :)
VIP : black with gold sparkle .
Connoisseur : mustard yellow frost finish.
Carte Blanche : light yellow gold .
Ritzy: chocolate brown with taupe undertones .
Kudos : sandy taupe brown.
Bragging Rights: coral frost .
Eltist : mossy green frost .
Extravagance : yellow gold frost .
These shadows are INSANELY pigmented ( yes , I had to capitalize that lol ) . I literally touched them once in order to get the color payoff you see in the pictures . A little of these babies goes a long way and they spread out evenly with virtually no fall out . VIP is the only semi satin in the palette , while the rest are frost finishes . I feel most of them are dupable color wise except Connoisseur . I don't think I have ever swatched a color like it ! I was under the impression that I own every variation of gold shadow there is but clearly not . I was unable to find anything remotely close to Connoisseur in my collection .
Overall , I think this will make a lovely Holiday gift and for $ 40 you cant fault the quality . I will definitely be wearing this with a matte red lip on Christmas day :)
