BareMinerals’ High Shine Electric

One of the first colors in the “regular” high shine collection. It looks like a dark teal, but it actually applies as a medium blue with hints of teal. The finish is similar applied wet or dry. Just don't use the applicator that comes with these shadows, or you'll end up with fallout and patchy application…and flaking throughout the day. (Lots of users have complained of this, so I know - for once - that it isn't just me.)

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the eyeshadow in the pot; top right, the eyeshadow mixed with water and applied to bare skin; bottom left, the eyeshadow applied dry over primer.

The color itself is a very pretty blue without being an unnerving blue - even for folks who are unnerved by any eyeshadow color that isn't pink, brown, or certain shades of smokey purple. Just be aware that these contain more ingredients than the regular BE eyeshadows, so if you've generally loved BE's products because of the minimal ingredients, or if you have any sensitivities, check out the ingredients list before purchasing.
