Ladies, get excited because cocktail hour is here! Eight luscious shades to choose from in a luxe gold palette! It's so hard to pick my favorite out of the eight, but I may have to choose "Shaken Not Stirred" in jeweled navy. The colors are so vivid, and they apply like a dream. They are extremely creamy and can even be worn without an eyeshadow primer although I wouldn't recommend that for an eight-hour-plus day. Last but not least, I was informed by the Sephora makeup artist that these eyeshadows have a skincare benefit. They actually help to depuff and firm the eye area. Now my eyes may not need it now, but they will thank me later on in life ;) I wasn't a huge a BareMinerals fan before, but now I am. I love the fact that they are going solid!

Colors from top to bottom, left to right: Black Tie Optional (black velvet), Icebreaker (pink pearl), Swanky (dazzling plum), Spiked (copper blush), Elixir (luxe lilac), Invite Only (taupe slate), Libation (sugared cinnamon) and Shaken Not Stirred (jeweled navy).

Here are some ideas that I created with this palette!
Look 1 - Soft & Natural
Inner Corner & Brow Highlight: Libation
Lid: Elixir
Crease: Swanky
Liner: Black Tie Optional

Look 2 - Sexy & Sulty
Inner Corner & Brow Highlight: Icebreaker
Lid: Invite Only
Crease: Swanky & Shaken Not Stirred
Liner: Black Pencil on top & Shaken Not Stirred on bottom

Thanks to for the pics ;)

Wow I didn't know that they made solid eye shadow! I will definitely check it out. Have you tried their Pretty Amazing lip colors! I tried Ambition on at Sephora, and it's the perfect pink for going out! This comment has been removed.
