BareMinerals’ High Shine Meteorite

The newer high-shine colors from BE look a lot like the Aromaleigh Elemental Lusters…and this one strongly resembles Entangle. It's a great neutral-but-not-boring brown metallic. There's not a whole lot of difference between wet and dry application for these colors, as is the case with most metallic-finish eyeshadows.

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.

As I've stated, the packaging and applicator on this is…annoying. Fortunately, it's solved easily enough: just unscrew the cap, take out the applicator, and just dump the stuff into the jar of your choice.

This is currently only available through QVC as part of their High Shine Longwear Duo; but will be in BE boutiques and select channel partners beginning May 2011.
