I was introduced to this product by Imani (nudelips on Youtube - she has impeccable makeup skills and some really helpful tips/techniques and...she's STUNNING!) as she raved about it and said that it really opens up the eye, makes it look bigger and brighter. I have to say, it took me a while to purchase but she's completely right. One thing I love about 'Soul' is that it doesn't look fake when applied - it blends into your skin and delivers like a inner corner/brow bone highlight should. What's more is that it's matte - I can see a tiny and I mean very minute sheeny-ness too it but I think that helps as it doesn't look flat when applied. My colouring ranges from NC30/NC35 (sometimes NC37/40) in the summer and it works really well. In my opinion this should work on pretty much all skintones but as I don't have much experience with very deep skin tones I suggest you try it out at a counter first. Better safe than sorry! The colour itself is creamy sort of buttermilk colour with a hint of pale yellow.
Another plus about this product you don't need much at all - you get 0.57g of product, regular MAC shadow is 1.5g. If you can see how much is in the lid in the picture above - that's good for both eyes I would say! Nonetheless, it is a loose powder and I know that's a big no no for some people (I used to be one of them) but bear in mind it isn't a very daunting colour and therefore a lot easier to work with. If you have the time and research on how, you could always press it if you so wished!
Do you have any favourites from Bare Minerals? I'm really interested in their new pressed 'Ready' line!
Let me know what shades you use to brighten up inner corners of the eye…
Lots of love!
