bareMinerals the Next Big Thing Palette Tutorial & Review

bareMinerals the Next Big Thing Review and Tutorial

So I thought I had done a review of the bareMinerals The Next Big Thing palette in July, but apparently not! I reached for it today for a look so I’ve got both a tutorial and review for you. This tutorial is good especially if you have hooded eyes like I do.

PR + purchased by me.

The Website Says
Exceptionally vivid, long-wearing color in an ultrasmooth, silky texture for effortless application and seamless blendability. Powered by the proprietary SeaNutritive Mineral Complex along with cold-pressed borage oil, caffeine and cucumber ingredients known to deliver anti-aging benefits including reduced appearance of puffiness, and antioxidants for a softer, smoother, revitalized eye area. It looks like a powder but feels like a cream and delivers a beautifully smooth application.

I think this is a lovely quad from bareMinerals. Only the shade Ensemble, gave me a bit of trouble. The rest were great. I especially love how soft and buttery the Smash Hit matte is, as it makes it very easy to apply in the crease. Hoopla is super rich, definitely a great shade for Fall.

What do you think of bareMinerals quads? Do you like this one?
