Yay! Finally posting my review of the Bare Minerals Degrees of Dazzling Pigment Set for you guys! I picked this up when I ordered from Sephora last, and I’m really glad I did. I don’t own much from the Bare Minerals Line, so I thought this would be a great way to know their eyeshadows better. The set comes with 20 lose eyeshadow pigments, in different textures. There are velvety mattes, high shine shimmers, glittery shades and shades meant to be used as liners. Check out my photos and thoughts of each shade below!
Strawberry Mousse is one of my favorite shades in this kit. Light, beigey pink with silver sparkle. sooo pretty as an inner corner highlight or for a light day look!
Velvet Nude is a matte orangey beige. It’s a bit darker than my skin tone and much more on the orangey side than a lot of beige shades I’ve seen.
Ginger Sugar is a shimmery taupey beige. Great day shade.
Stay Golden is a shimmery gold with a bit of a green undertone to it. Kind of like an antique gold. Great texture and color payoff.
Velvet Mauve is a matte medium pinky mauve shade. This is a great, great shade to use as a transitioning color in the crease of the eye!
Velvet Lavendar is possibly the coolest, most unique shade in the bunch. Its almost ghostly, white lavender matte. really really cool shade!
Silver Dollar is a super metallic silver with loads of shimmer. This shade is amazing when you use just a touch- I like using it on the lower lashine just in the inner corner. I mean, its cool in general and would be badass all over the lid, but when you use it in just a small space it really can change an eye look from being ordinary to having a really cool flair to it!
Pewter is a shimmery cool taupe. Another shade that I can see a lot of people using as a quick look for work.
Iridescent Iris is another really unique shade in this kit. This shade seems to have a silvery base with a pink shimmer overtop. REALLY cool, I can’t wait to play with this shade more!
Violet Spell is a soft purple shade with silver shimmer. Gorgeous, would look great with Iridescent Iris!
Rose Gold is just that, a rosy, gold shimmer. It looks soooo much like MAC’s Rose Gold, but with way way way better texture.
Yoga is a deep burgundy shade with shimmer. Great crease color or if used as a liner around the eyes!
Starry Night is a beautiful purple with blue micro glitter. This shade is so fun! Another one I can’t wait to play with in eye looks.
Toasted Espresso is a medium taupe brown with shimmer. This shade would work well for day and night looks.
Golden Pear is a light green shimmer. It’s actually dead on for the color of a pear!
Velvet Emerald is a matte green with a somewhat blue undertone. This swatched a bit chalky, so I think it would need a really great base, or to be used wet.
Deep Sea is a deep teal base with loads and loads of bright teal shimmer. This shade is absolutely breathtaking, especially if you use it wet!!
Velvet Charcoal is a matte slate gray. Of the Velvets this one had a less chalky quality.
Lagoon is a matte blackened blue. This seems to swatch lighter than it looked in the pot, but again was less chalky than other velvets.
Black Leather is a deep matte black with silver sparkle. This shade had blending issues, and would probably work best if used wet as a liner.
Overall I am really happy I picked this kit up! There are so many different shades and textures, I think its a really great kit. The size of the pigments is also nice because they aren’t overwhelmingly large, but I still think it would take a loooong time to use one up!
Available for $79 from Sephora.
