bareMinerals 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow

RATING (out of 5 stars): 4.5 stars

COST: $18

THE SKINNY: I am always a little mixed on whether I actually like cream eye shadows or not. The staying power is nice, but the feel is typically too thick.

Problem solved with bareMinerals 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow! I love this stuff. It is a cream but is super light. And then has the feel and finish of a powder shadow. (The best of both worlds.) It works great alone (darker hues) or as a layering shadow (lighter hues).

The product is new and only has 10 colors right now, but I am seriously hoping for more. The shadow is different in that it is a BB cream base -- no primer needed here -- and contains sunscreen. bareMinerals also claims this product contains FIVE benefits:
  • 12-hour long-wearing color
  • Supercharged primer
  • Powerful brightening benefits
  • Smooths appearance of fine lines
  • Protects with SPF 15
I can vouch for three of them -- long-wearing, great primer and brightening. (We'll just have to take their word on the other two.)

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep!

CHECK IT OUT: Buy from Sephora, Ulta or direct from bareMinerals.
