bareMinerals Prime Time Primer Shadow in Bronzed Twig

bareMinerals Prime Time - Bronzed Twig

Okay, so I’ve had this for a while. It’s basically a colored eye primer from bareMinerals called Prime Time Primer Shadow. I have it in Bronzed Twig. I can’t really explain why I never bothered to use this because as you will see in a bit, it is pretty gorgeous. Check out this swatch in the mean time:

It reminds me of the Buxom Stay-There Eyeshadow, because this has quite a bit of sparkle and shine. This one’s a bit more pigmented and opaque, however. Bronzed Twig is a pretty warm, bronze-y midtone brown. It works well as a primer and it adds a lovely dimension and complexity to the eyeshadows you layer on top of it.

The applicator and packaging are the almost deal-breakers, I think. It is hygienic, sure, but it is so hard to squeeze the primer out this little hole:

Here is Bronzed Twig on my eyes:

It’s a pretty easy look. I just applied Bronzed Twig over the mobile eyelid. (I warmed up the product first.) Then, I added a little bit of Sleek from theBalm’s Nude Tude Palette on the outermost corners with my ring finger. Then I lined my eyes with a liquid eyeliner, curled my lashes and added mascara!

Here is the full-face. I think it’s a pretty good understated eye look for everyday if you don’t like attention but love a bit of definition and enhancement.

Rest of the face makeup: K-Palette eyebrow pen, NARS Sin, Le Métier de Beauté “Silhouette” from Bauhaus Kaleidoscope Lip Kit.

bareMinerals is cruelty-free.
