Bare Minerals Prime Time Primer Shadow: Bronzed Twig (Pictures and Review)

Today I tried a new addition to the Bare Minerals line : Prime Time Primer Shadow.  These are basically an eye shadow and an eye primer in one (genius!).   Because of this, you get great color plus great staying power and crease prevention!
The color I tried is called "Bronzed Twig", described by Bare Minerals as "iced chocolate"...yum:

I used my finger to sweep the primer shadow onto my eye lid.  Note: a tiny bit is all you need...these go a LONG way!  I then used the eye shadow "Buck", a matte medium brown (from Urban Decay's Naked Palette) in the crease to blend, then the color "Virgin" (also from Naked Palette) as a highlight color.

These pictures were taken 10 HOURS after I did my makeup....the primer shadow wore wonderfully all day!





These are truly fantastic!  They come in 5 other colors and I think the hoarder in me needs them all!!! What do you think of them?

  3. What a great idea - shadow and primer in one! I wish more companies would think to do this. It would save me some time getting ready in the morning.

    Thanks for sharing! :)

  5. I've reaaaally been wanting these. I'm obsessed with cream eyeshadows that don't crease just because of the convenience factor. The one want to try most is Urban Nature because I've seen swatches and it's a duochrome!

  6. @Jayme.....Ooooh NOOO! I love the purple one too, it is a great color! Hopefully you will find it soon.

    @Mary....I totally love the "easy" factor of these too...so simple.

    @Jessi, Urban Nature is amazing too! I love the greenish/silverish/purple duochrome effect. I will post more pics soon of these!
