Review amp Swatches: bareMinerals `The Dream Sequence` Quad

5 years ago

This is one of the somewhat new bareMinerals Ready 4.0 palettes. It`s called The Dream Sequence. I got this as a gift for Christmas, but I actually picked it out during the VIB event at Sephora back in November. I mainly picked it for the purple/grey/taupe shade named Romp on the top left. It is stunning!

All the reviews I`ve read on these shadows have said how soft and pigmented these shadows are. They weren`t kidding! These feel so nice and apply nicely as well. They are all very pigmented.

I like all of the colors that are included, but I don`t think I`d ever wear Romp and Boudoir together. Boudoir kind of reminds me of MAC Stars n Rockets. I can`t say if they are dupes or not though because I don`t own the MAC one, but I`m pretty sure they give a similar effect. 500 Thread Count looks like a generic cream shade in the pan, but it actually has gorgeous dimension once applied. I thought it would be like a bunch of other shadows that I own, but it`s really not. I`ve already said this, but Romp is absolutely stunning! I just can`t get over it. I originally bought the `I`m Feeling Retro` trio from Wet n Wild to get the shade in it that is similar to Boudoir in this quad, but Boudoir has a much better texture. Nightcap is a really nice matte shade that applies without any issues.

The packaging is black and feels similar to NARS packaging. It has a mirror in it that is pretty much the same size as the lid. It comes with a sponge tip applicator, which people don`t usually like, but this one is actually really soft.

<strong>Price & Availability:</strong>
Like I said, got this at Sephora, but it is also available at Ulta and bareMinerals boutiques. It is $30. The duos are $20, so I think this is a pretty good value for the quality you get.

The swatches are without primer, but I always use a primer under any eyeshadow I use. I applied the eyeshadows very lightly. I did not have to build them up to get that kind of payoff.

I really can`t say enough good things about this quad! I just really love it. Have you tried it or any of the other bareMinerals Ready eyeshadow duos/quads yet?
