bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 8.0 - The Playlist

The bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow palettes come in two limited-edition shades with gorgeous luxe gold packaging. "The Playlist" is a palette that is made up of golds, greens and shimmery browns, shades that work on most people. The packaging is just lovely and comes with a mirror the size of the case. The luxe kit does not feel heavy and travels really well.

The Playlist features Pumped(cocoa sparkle) Chart Topper(pewter silk), Max Volume(smokey jade), Louder(burnished copper), One Hit Wonder(butter chiffon), Most Requested(burgundy sparkle),Remix(burnished gold), Speaker Box(shimmering gunmetal)

The texture of the eye shadows are buttery smooth and amazingly pigmented. The Playlist has mostly wearable shades and I was so happy that there was very minimal to no fallout from all shades except the cream(almost white) highlight shade. But since most shades do have quite a bit of shimmer, I prefer doing my face routine afterwards. The metallic shades have very finely milled shimmer and blend seamlessly. You don't need a primer to boost the vibrancy of the shadows but, I would suggest using one for extended wear. Without a primer, they tend to crease after about 3 hours.
L-R : Pumped, Chart Topper, Max Volume, Louder

Used Louder on the lid, Speaker Box in the outer corner, crease & Chart Topper on the brow bone
According to bareMinerals, these eye shadows contain no parabens, binders, fillers or harsh chemicals. I cannot speak for the quality of the other palette, The Cocktail as I haven't tried it. But, this one is a definite winner and the colors are a great mix. Whether it's just a wash of color you are going for or a more dramatic look, this palette works just fine.
