Today at Ulta, I discovered the new Bare Escentuals High Shine Eyecolor. These shadows are slightly different for BE, so my curiosity was piqued. Instead of being a loose mineral shadow that you apply with a brush, these come in a container, with a built-in, wand-like applicator.
To apply the color, you just shake the little jar, and gently shake off the applicator as you pull the wand out of the bottle. Then you can apply these high shine, richly pigmented colors directly to your lids, so they are great for on-the-go-gals. They are available in six different colors:
Patina, a rich dark green
Electric, a bright blue
Glisten, a shiny nude
Frost, a so-shiny-it's-almost-a-mirror platinum
Moonshine, a gorgeous plum
Bronzed, a super high-shine tigers eye bronze
UPDATED: Today I got the chance to actually wear Patina. I started with the BE Brightening Eye Primer, all over my lower lid, up to the crease. I used Patina as the main lid color and blended the top edge of color with BE's Moonlight. I also lined the top and bottom with the Expresso Big and Beautiful Liner. I really liked how smoothly the applicator applied the color . The wand is also shaped in a way that makes applying it easy, fast and with even coverage. I didn't have fallout issues and as of now (4 hours later) my color is still as strong and has not yet begun to move or fade.
While this color is shiny, it isn't as shiny as colors like Frost. I think this is perfectly wearable for all ages during the day. Some other colors may not translate as well, but it's all in how you wear it! I expect this to last for 10-12 hours with no problem. Let me know if you have picked any of these up yet and tell me what you think!
I did end up buying Patina, otherwise I just swatched these in the store. BE does not test on animals.
