Bare Minerals Degrees of Dazzling Pigment Set Review

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!


BMDegreesofDazzling Strawberry Mousse

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!

BMDegreesofDazzling 1 Velvet Nude

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.

BMDegreesofDazzling 2 Ginger Sugar

Ginger Sugar is a shimmery taupey beige. Great day shade.

BMDegreesofDazzling 5 Stay Golden

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.

BMDegreesofDazzling 12 Velvet Mauve

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!

BMDegreesofDazzling 4 Velvet Lavendar

Velvet Lavendar is possibly the coolest, most unique shade in the bunch. Its almost ghostly, white lavender matte. really really cool shade!

BMDegreesofDazzling 3 Silver Dollar

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!

BMDegreesofDazzling 9 Pewter

Pewter is a shimmery cool taupe. Another shade that I can see a lot of people using as a quick look for work.

BMDegreesofDazzling 8 Iridescent Iris

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!

BMDegreesofDazzling 14 Violet Spell

Violet Spell is a soft purple shade with silver shimmer. Gorgeous, would look great with Iridescent Iris!

BMDegreesofDazzling 13 Rose Gold

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.

BMDegreesofDazzling 19 Yoga

Yoga is a deep burgundy shade with shimmer. Great crease color or if used as a liner around the eyes!

BMDegreesofDazzling 15 Starry Night

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.

BMDegreesofDazzling 11 Toasted Espresso

Toasted Espresso is a medium taupe brown with shimmer. This shade would work well for day and night looks.

BMDegreesofDazzling 6 Golden Pear

Golden Pear is a light green shimmer. It’s actually dead on for the color of a pear!

BMDegreesofDazzling 10 Velvet Emerald

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.

BMDegreesofDazzling 16 Deep Sea

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!!

BMDegreesofDazzling 7 Velvet Charcoal

Velvet Charcoal is a matte slate gray. Of the Velvets this one had a less chalky quality.

BMDegreesofDazzling 17 Lagoon

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.

BMDegreesofDazzling 18 Black Leather

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.

      ditto! my personal favorite shade of the bunch!! sooo pretty!! leesha – can’t wait to see this one in some tutorials!! :)

  2. Elizabeth Kopuz says

    Do these shades come separately, or do they only come as a set? Most of them I would never use but I just love a few of them and I don’t want to shell out $79 for a set if I won’t use 75% of it

    1. Jennifer Innes says

      I believe these are just on this set. They are on sale now for $49 on bare minerals site though. :-) I’m hoping Sephora will put them on sale too . ;-)

    i bought this as well! i’m such a sucker for pigments and bare minerals’ eyeshadows. i love having the mini sizes compared to the full ones to see what you like. the iridescent iris has been a favorite so far. i’d love to have a full size of that one.

    These are all beautiful! Can’t wait to see what looks you create with these

  5. Chris says

    I’ve been using Bare Minerals products for awhile now and I really love their eyeshadows, but don’t have a whole lot of them. I love how they can be used wet or dry and as liner or lid color. These colors are gorgeous! I can hardly wait to see what you come up with for looks. So excited to see you reviewing their products.

    I think about how much they must be struggling, and how shameful it is of Baylor in this football season to not even care what these victims are going through.
