Bare Escentuals The Star Treatment eyeshadow palette.

When I heard Bare Escentuals is releasing pressed eyeshadows, I was surprised and mildly curious. Then I heard that they came out with a whole palette filled with pressed eyeshadows and of course I had to try it. Not that I need another eyeshadow palette.

The Star Treatment palette

The Star Treatment palette was originally released for the fall/holiday collection and contains 8 eyeshadows and a mini eye primer.

The colours are definitely more to the safe neutral side of the colour spectrum. Maybe a bit boring for some but it makes a great workhorse for workdays.

The Star Treatment palette- back

The case is made from a sturdy silvery metal and is perfect for travelling. The only thing is that it will show any fingerprints on it but the surface is smooth (like a mirror) and is very easy to clean in case it gets dirty.

The quality of the eyeshadows are surprisingly good. Since I wasn't the biggest fan of their loose eyeshadows, this palette has won me over with the smooth, buttery (almost to the point of being too powdery) and very pigmented texture.

These eyeshadows do not fade during the day and will last all day even without wearing a good eye primer.

Their mini eye primer that was included with this palette reminds me of UDPP but with a thicker consistancy. Works amazingly with these eyeshadows and helps to make the colours a bit more vibrant.

Here are swatches I made to give an accurate idea of how the colours like look when applied on the skin.

First row (from L to R): VIP- Connoisseur- Carte Blanche- Ritzy

Second row (from L to R): Kudos- Bragging Rights- Elitist- Extravagance

The Star Treatment palette was limited edition from the fall/holiday collection and retails for $40 UDS/ 40 EUR.

Bare Escentuals can be purchased online on their website and at their counters at Sephora (US, France), Selfridges (UK), etc...
