What’s New: bareMinerals Prime Time Primer Shadows in 6 Fun Shades


New in July from bareMinerals, check out these Prime Time Primer Shadows—six metallic budge-proof cream eyeshadows. Great for wearing solo or layering under dry shadows, you can add a surprising pop of color or apply them very lightly for a sheer wash.

The shade breakdown:

  • Bronzed Twig — iced chocolate
  • Chroma Violet — shimmering plum
  • Racing Green — vibrant emerald
  • Sundance — sunlit peach
  • Gunmetal — midnight silver
  • Urban Nature — duo-chrome moss green

I found these to last all day (even with weather in the 90′s), and without any creasing! Prime Time Primer Shadows give just enough time to manipulate on the lid before locking in, for super long wear. These are waterproof, free of preservatives and fragrance, and are perfect for the summer.

I like that these are very easy to apply; feel free to use a finger, but I prefer using a synthetic brush instead for a little more control. If I could change one thing, it would be the size of the product—they are a tad tiny!

Shades for the win: Sundance, Racing Green, and Urban Nature.

Which are your faves?
