BareMinerals Gen Nude Neutral Eyeshadow Palette

As you may know already, bareMinerals launched a collection of four neutral-toned eyeshadow palettes ; Rose, Neutral, Copper and Latte! Enriched with cucumber extract, algae and borage oil, bareMinerals' new Gen Nude palettes are supposed to be highly pigmented and easy to blend. Today, I'm reviewing the Gen Nude Neutral palette!

BareMinerals Gen Nude Neutral Eyeshadow Palette Review Photos Swatches

This palette features six neutral-toned eyeshadows with matte, satin and shimmery finishes.

The shades Mystic and Sandstone look matte in the pan, but they are slightly luminous on the skin. Mystic is pretty on the brow bone and I love the subtle glow! Sandstone is a beautiful transition shade too, even if it's not completely matte.

Believer and Tribe have a shimmery finish (no glitters!), but they look a bit more metallic when I apply them with my fingers. Indie is matte, while Native is satin-matte.

BareMinerals Gen Nude Neutral Eyeshadow Palette Review

The formula is fabulous, the satin and shimmery shades are very smooth and creamy while the matte color (Indie) feels more dry to the touch but it performs beautifully. The color payoff is great too, and that brown is so richly pigmented! None of them look patchy on the skin and they blend seamlessly.

I always use an eyeshadow primer so I can't say if the formula is long lasting and crease-resistant like the brand claims, but it lasts all day on me (with a primer).

If you love neutral eyeshadows and don't already own a dozen of them, I highly recommend this one!

  1. THis looks like such a pretty palette. I haven't tried any BM shadows in a long time but love their other brand Buxom's shadows. I really like these shades and the general look of it, very high end.

  2. Beautiful swatches and great review! Thank you!
