Somehow, without my realizing it, this has become one of the real workhorses in my makeup collection. I'm now on my third or fourth jar of this, and I think I have to just admit that it's one of my very favorites! It is peachy-pink, with shimmer that makes it look "glowy" when it is on. The pink helps to keep the peachiness from being too warm, so it works perfectly on my very pale cool-toned skin. And it's great with blue eyes -- my eyes seem to sparkle, so the shadow really enhances my eyes, without calling too much attention to itself. I don't wear browns or neutrals at all, so this is my "neutral" look. Sometimes I'll add a darker liner with it, sometimes I'll use a sparkly white shadow to line my upper lid (very summery!), sometimes I'll pair it with a cooler pink when I want a look that's lighter but still interesting. So I've found that this is very versatile, and also very flattering on its own -- the kind of thing I can put on when I don't have a lot of time to fuss with my eye makeup, but it still manages to look polished and sexy at the same time.

This is a shimmery loose eyeshadow. It's supposed to be a neutral skin color, but on me it turns mauve and looks blah. Other than that it's pretty good; well pigmented, smooth, and doesn't crease with a primer.

I'm still working my way through a generous Sephora sample of this loose shadow, which I got to try out after seeing a lot of tutorials that raved about this product. And, indeed, it IS very nice, especially for a quick, "one shadow and you're out the door" type look. I wouldn't hesitate to repurchase Bare Skin once I finish my sample. You get so much of these for such a reasonable price that they really offer tremendous value and, surprisingly for a loose product, they tend not to have too much fall-out, if you give your brush a good tap or two. The container is a bit of a pain for tossing into your purse (unless they've recently changed the packaging), but it does make the shadow easy to use. Good value on a good product.

I had been looking for a perfect peachy pink eyeshadow and this is definitely it. It is shimmery but without chunks of glitter. More appropriate for warmer months as it has bronze tones as well. Applies beautifully and stays all day without creasing when applied over UDPP, and blends well. Like all BE glimmers you get a ton of product and only need a small amount for each application. However, also like all BE glimmers you have to deal with the sifter/jar which I find annoying - as I have spilt product on more than one occasion. Still, I'm happy to deal with it for this beautiful eyeshadow.

Beautiful color. It reminds me of Bobbi Brown's Bronzed Pink which I think is D/C'd. However it is pretty glittery - not overly crazy, but it is there. It is very soft, very feminine and beautiful - but the application leaves a lot to be desired. But the amount you get is way more than generous and with time gets easier and more fluid. It's a pinky-slightly beige-bronze-ish color. If that makes sense at all. Great for summer I think. Very subtle on lids but not so subtle that I look like I have nothing on. If you think you cannot pull of pinkish colors try this one. I would buy this one again!

This is a great basic color to own, the shimmer is so fine and pretty. The color is a light pinky, peachy shade with a hint of gold in it. I don't pick up any mauve tones like many people mentioned in the reviews. Its a light warm tone. I have brown eyes, but it looks good on just about everyone. Tigers Eye from BE looks good with it and so does Queen Tiffany. I like to use Shale(a medium matte neautral purple) from MAC in the crease with Bare Skin. I use a dark purple liner with it, really looks good on brown eyes.NYC and maybelline have great dark purple eyeliners that really stay put.

This is me all time favourite eye shadow ever! I am fair skinned with blue eyes and blonde hair and this really sets off the colour of my eyes :)
My husband thinks I am not really wearing make up when i wear it lol
I wear it either alone on my lids with liner and mascara or I add a deeper colour to the crease and outer v - either way, it looks AMAZING on me..
I love the 'shimmer' it has.. it's so very fine and does not make my eye lids look like crepe paper like most 'shimmer' shadows do.
I seriously want to go buy a back up (or three) because I've never ever loved an eye shadow as much :)
... gee - I can't gush enough about this product LOL (AND it LASTS on my lids too LOL!)
I hate the packaging ... lol - but ... love the rest of it :)

Add another fan to the list. I hate MAC Rose pigment and generally hate pink eyeshadows because they make me look like I have an eye infection or that I'm sick or tired. This though ... perfect. It looked too pink when I swatched it on my hand but on the eyes, it's gorgeous. It gives a fantastic glowy bronzey pink summer eye. Subtle but fantastico.

This was the first BE shadow I ever bought. You really can wear it with just about anything, it almost kind of adjusts its shade depending on what you wear it with. Overall though I think I would describe it as a pinkish light taupe with lots of shimmer. When I can't figure out what color to wear I just pick this one up if I want a bit of sparkle. This led me to expand my BE shadow collection, I love it so much - the little jar will last forever, and it doesn't crease if worn with a primer (UDPP or MAC paint pots work great). Really love this shade!

Love love love. Perfect pinkish shade with a slight glimmer (that looks great, not over the top). As others have said, it is versatile to wear with almost anything, any day.
It lasts a long time- worth the money.
I use it on my eyes, and to highlight my cheekbones occasionally.
The only con is the mess that comes with most BE products....but it usually isn't a problem :)

Another reviewer described the color as pink champagne -- I think that describes it perfectly. This was probably the first BE shadpw I bought years ago and although I have fallen in and out of love with BE over the years, this eyeshadow has remained one of my favorites. I really wish BE would improve their packaging, but this shadow is worht the potential mess. Love it.

This is one of two Bare Escentuals eye colors that I like enough to mess with. It's a beautiful color, and is neutral enough to look good with almost anything I wear. I really love the color. I don't care for the mess of it, and how it falls onto my face. I try to make sure I tap my brush on the lid before applying, but it still seems to make a mess. It creases very quickly on me, so I have to use a primer. But that is the case with all eyeshadows for me, I have very oily lids. I've had my container of it for about 3 years. A pot of it lasts a long time.

Out of all the BE shadows, this is my favorite. i LOVE this color! it looks great on-- i never thought i could wear pinky-mauve toned shadow, and i always wanted to find a good one to try, and this is perfect. of course, as everyone else says, the eyeshadows can be incredibly messy to use. and i hate how the particles from the shadow fall on to your cheeks when your putting it on. i have found that the best way to avoid this is to use a primer, (i use urban decay primer potion in the nude color) and i make sure i apply my shadow while it is still tacky. this way all the shadow sticks to my eye instead of falling off. anyways- LOVE this color!!!

I personally can't go wrong with this shade. It's a shimmery pink color, and normally I have to be careful with pink lids on my NC35 skintone, but this I would almost consider a neutral-pink. I really like the added glimmer too-I find it pretty and sheer, not over the top at all! Definitely will stay a part of my collection.

I got this as a sample in one of my club orders and I guess I didn't pay attention to what it actually was. I've been using it for a little bit of everything. It's quite shimmery, but it makes a pretty highlight on your cheeks. Now I find it's an eyeshadow by design! Who knew it was so versatile right? Anyhow, I really like it and would buy it again. Such a lovely shade of pink shimmer.

Love this shadow. Gives lids a pink/champagne kind of glimmer. Really great to use when you dont want to wear too much shadow. Great for a subtle look.

I have this in bare skin, heart, black ruby, drama, and a few others. I really like them. they are super sparkley and pretty. however, they can be a bit messy. totally worth it though.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Brown, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
This is a really nice every day colour. I'm really pale and can't wear it on days when I'm tired because it makes me look even more tired. Still though, It looks wonderful on days when I've had enough rest and it gives my lids a nice glow.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Love it! I usually use it wet to get a lot of colour on my lids, then blend into the crease dry to soften the edges. I've had the one jar for ages and can't see myself running out anytime soon - very long lasting.

This is a very natural, brownish-mauvey shimmer. The name is a bit misleading to me though, I expected it to go on less pigmented than it does. Despite that, it's still a nice color and looks great alone. I just can't stand the mess these shadows make. Maybe someday BE will reengineer the packaging and make the shadows less of a nightmare to use.
