It is distinctly possible that the Bare Escentuals 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow Broad Spectrum SPF 15 has a permanent place in my makeup bag! My favorite shade is the Soft Linen. I have also tried the shade called Divine Wine but it’s a little too intense for me.
During the week, I use this as a fantastic eyeshadow base and on the weekends I use this by itself. Not only does it help my eyeshadow last absolutely all day, but it also helps even out the uneven tone of my ey[proelids and helps brighten the entire area.
The Soft Linen shade is a lighter shade of neutral and blends nicely into my skin. I do not use it for color, just to even out my skin tone, and prime for eyeshadow if I plan to wear any that day. It does have a beautiful matte finish but you could easily add a shimmer product on top.
The Divine Wine shade was a beautiful color but was just too dark for what I normally wear. For a pale-face like myself, it is a drama shade. If I could figure out how, it might make a terrific eyeliner but it seems that that would almost be a waste of the product.
The product is in a lip gloss type of container with a padded wand as an applicator. I prefer to dab the tip of the applicator with my finger and then pat the product onto my skin. I think if I applied it directly, it would go on too thickly.
It comes in a variety of shades, from light to dark, depending on your preference. I am tempted to try the Blushing Pink shade just because it looks so pretty in the swatch!
