Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow Palette ~ The True Romantic, Review and Swatches

I thought I'd change it up a bit and post an eyeshadow review for you. Don't worry I have more lip product reviews coming up. Lol

Anyways, I purchased a new eyeshadow quad/palette from bare minerals a couple weeks ago and wanted to share my thoughts. 

I first tried the bare minerals ready line last year and fell in love with it. I purchased a kit from QVC a few months ago and it just reaffirmed my love, so when I saw a new collection at Ulta I just had to check it out. I ended up picking up the True Romantic eye shadow quad.

The packaging is very beautiful in a rose gold colored case. It's very shiny though, so fingerprints on it are inevitable! 

Top - L to R 
Love It, Woo Is Me
Bottom - Louder, and Head over Heels.

L to R 
Love it, Woo is me, Louder, and Head over heels. 

Love It is a white/minty green color. It has a bit of shimmer but it's not glittery. 

Woo is me is such a pretty color! This one is like a light gold with pink duo chrome finish. You can see in the photos above the first photo it just looks gold but in the second picture you can see the pink finish. 

Louder is a warm gold. It's very pretty. I love this color all over the lid. 

Head Over Heels is a dark taupe-y brown. This is great to darken the outer corner, use to create a smokey eye, or even use as an eye liner. 

All of these are highly pigmented and blend easily. They can be a bit powdery but regardless they are easy to use, just tap off any excess product on your brush. 

I have no problems with fading or creasing when used with a good eye shadow primer. I love urban decay primer potion in Eden. 

The True Romantic is a great everyday color palette that can be worn to school, office, or even the grocery store. You can definitely get glam and smoke it up with the darker color though, so it's a very versatile palette. 

You can find this at your nearest Ulta or for $30.
