Bare Minerals Prime Time Eye Shadows (Chroma Violet and Urban Nature)

Bare Minerals Prime Time Primer Shadows (*) come in six different colours and I was lucky enough to receive two in my Bare Minerals Goody Bag. The colours I received were 'Chroma Violet' and 'Urban Nature'.

As you can see from the packaging photos the colour indicators are a solid purple and a khaki colour. Initially I assumed I wouldn't be a fan of either colour however once I swatched them I realised they weren't just 'flat' colours but multifaceted, shimmering colours which reflected different colours at every angle. I used the teeny tiniest amount of product and you can see just how pigmented it is and how a little goes a long long way - use these very very sparingly. 

I would say Urban Nature is the more everday colour of the two but Chroma Violet would absolutely be perfect for a smokey eye. I have yet to experiment with layering these primers under other colours so there will be endless colour possibilities!

'Prime Time Primer Shadows provide vivid, rich, light-reflective metallic color in a lightweight texture. Wear these unique primers alone or try them layered with your favourite bareMinerals Eyecolors for more intense colour and infinitely gorgeous possibilities. Perfect for those with oily lids, uneven skin-texture or anyone who experiences creasing and fading.'

Below are a few more photos showing the metallic, reflective nature of the colours and a very short video demonstrating just how long-lasting and smudge proof the primers are (which is exactly what you need from a primer!)

These retail at £16 each from Bare Minerals.  I'm super keen to get my mitts on 'bronzed twig'!
