Bareminerals – The Colour Extravaganza Eye Palette

Hello everyone – today it’s time for some more beauty talk, and I’m sharing with you my thoughts on the Bareminerals The Colour Extravaganza Eye Palette. As the name suggests, this eye palette is incredible – it is tailored to you, and something that you can take almost anywhere with you. With this palette, you design it yourself – choosing twelve of the ready-to-go compact shades, to put together a versatile palette that you can have in full – or in travel size form using three shades.

I think all these shades are absolutely gorgeous – they’re so shimmery, and pigmented – what more could you want? And I love that I have them colour-grouped together – if you know me you know I love my organisation, even when it comes to makeup. The warm tone to most of these shades are perfect for the cold winter months, and are what I would use for a more glam, night time look. I think it’s such a good idea that you can chose your own shades – creating a palette that suits you the best rather than trying to find one that does.


The palette has a mirror – something essential for me, and comes with a duo-applicator – on the one end being a tapered crease brush, and on the other a flat liner brush. One of my favourite things about this palette, despite its versatility of course – because who doesn’t want to be able to take their three favourite shades for let’s say a weekend away without lumping around the whole palette. But also, the fact that the palette gives guide on which shades are suitable as a base colour, a crease colour, or as a liner. For me, that is what makes this eye palette that extra bit special – that extra detail and thought.

This palette just offers everything I want – the fact that it can be transformed into a miniature is my favourite feature – because, if anything, the one thing that puts me off big palettes is the fact that they can be a bit of a faff to travel with – and I prefer the idea of having my few select favourites with me dependent on occasion. I also love the packaging to the palette – it’s simplistic yet statement.

What do you think of the palette?
