I just don’t get bored of neutral eyeshadow palettes, nor do I get bored of Bare Minerals. This palette of beauty has been a long time coming, especially since the launch of their incredible READY eyeshadows around a year ago. Featuring eight different shades of blendable colour, The Power Neutrals palette contains everything you need to go from day to night. The texture is silky smooth and the pigment is quite strong, allowing you to build colour and blend for a more intense smokey result. I love the fact that there are four lighter shades and four darker, as you normally only get one or two ‘base shades’ that soon get used up and leave the palette in the has-been pile. The flexibility of the colours allows you to create so many different looks, as well as using the lighter and reflective shades to contour. My only critisism is that there’s not a really deep grey colour in the palette for super smokey eyes, but it is possible to create the look by building the lighter grey shade and buffing the colour. The packaging itself is sleek and light, making it perfect for use on the go or for travelling, while the brush applicator includes is really rather useful (unlike the majority of foam thingies that just go straight into the bin.) At £35.00, you’re paying around £4.00 per eyeshadow – which isn’t bad at all. Definitely an investment purchase this Autumn that will keep you going until at least next Spring.
The Power Neutrals palette is available online and in Bare Minerals boutiques/concessions priced £35.00. Currently on offer for £31.50 in Debenhams.
