Bare Minerals Prime Time Shadows - Swatches and Review

A while a go, I purchased these primer shadows at my local Bare Minerals outlet store. They had a pretty good sale on them so I snatched 2 sets for around $15 each.

The first set I have here is called The Gold & The Beautiful. It contains 5 shadow primer. They are 1.5 ml/.05 oz each. They come in these little squeezable tube that reminds me of paint tubes.

Swatches from left to right:
  • Sundance - shimmery light peach
  • Silver Spoon - shimmery light silver with a bit of silver sparkles.
  • Bronzed Twig - medium cool toned shimmery brown 
  • Gold Nugget - medium shimmery gold
  • Sandalwood - medium shimmery bronze

The second set is called It's Show Prime and contains 3 shadow primers of 3 ml/.1 oz each.

Swatches from left to right:

  • Golden Peach - this one looks more like a pale shimmery gold. 
  • Lavender Ice - pale shimmery lavender with a bit of silver sparkles
  • Toasted Almond - medium light shimmery taupe. 

Final Thought

I believe these were limited edition sets and you may still be able to find them in store or on Amazon/Ebay. All the colors were beautiful and much prettier in person. They're not too bold so you can wear these every day if you want to. I typically wear them as a quick wash all over my lid.
Pigmentation is excellent. As far as texture, they do feel a little drier although I didn't have any issues with application. You need a good squeeze to get them out of the tube because they are thick. They spread out nicely and evenly but you have to work quickly because they set quickly.
Once they're on, they wear like iron. They won't budge, smudge, or crease until you take them off.
Overall, very nice primer shadows. I just wished they were a little creamier.
