BareMinerals’ Satin Mist

Very pale greyed green with a pearlescent finish that almost overpowers the underlying color. The applied shade looks both brighter and less green than it does sitting in the jar; and the dry application is just barely semisheer. I think that the shadow doesn't have much in the way of color payoff. Instead, it looks more like a tinted pearl finish than a standalone eye shadow. If you're looking for a solid soft khaki-olive green, this isn't the shade you want…but shades like this can be a good way to catch and reflect back light around the eye area, while providing just a little bit of color on their own. This is more of a highlighter or an eye luminizer than a solid color. Use the shadow for what it is, and you'll be pleased with the results.
