bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow Quad in The Truth! Swatches and Review!

Yes, I know, here I am again about the bareMinerals eyeshadows. I won't babble too much on how amazing these are but here's a quick recap of my last review of The Happy Place:

- the eyeshadows are AMAZINGLY soft but do not crumble
- the shadows are amazingly pigmented
- they are the longest lasting shadows I've ever come across. Period.

So, in case you're considering buying these, here are swatches of another palette from the bareMinerals READY Quads, The Truth.


The packaging is sturdy and smooth. Much like NARS packaging actually.

On to the swatches!

 From left to right: Serendipitous, Magnetism, Fate, and Apropos

All of the shadows are pigmented and easy to blend. In fact, those swatches were done with a quick swipe of my fingers in the pan.

I've gotten a lot of use out of Magnetism for my everyday makeup, usually blending Apropos lightly in the crease. Serendipitous has replaced my MAC Shroom as I find is easier to blend, and more pigmented. I suppose I do have similar MAC in my collection that are comparable to these shadows, but the quality of this palette is superior to any dupes I might have.

Hope this helps in case you're contemplating these purchasing these palettes! They'd make a wonderful gift for any makeup lovers in your family/friends! This palette would particularly be perfect for the neutral lovers out there!

  2. I have this. But somehow, it's too shimmery for me when I brought it home. Really love it in stores.

    1. Yes, the dark brown is a bit too shimmery for my taste as well. Glitter bits are usually a no-no in my beauty books ;)

  4. Hi Annick, Truth looks like a wonderfully wearable quad! It's nice to hear your thoughts about the formula--- it sounds pretty awesome! I like rubberized packaging, so I think that's a plus too.

  5. Oh, thank you thank you thank you for this post! I've been searching for the perfect small (4 color or 3 color) everyday neutrals palette! I have a few of BM's other eyeshadow palettes-- I used one on my mom and she immediately went out and bought it--but they aren't quite neutrals. This is PERFECT.
