bareMinerals the Wild Thing Palette

The Wild Thing

These colors are fun! And let’s talk about the packaging. I love the aqua packaging. It’s so pretty. It’s not heavy. It doesn’t feel cheap. It’s light, compact and cute. I just wish that they’d have skipped the applicator sponge ‘brush’ that comes in these quads and added more shadow.

Would I purchase again?
Yes. While I’m not normally a taupe girl, I love the other 3 shades in this palette a bunch. And the taupe isn’t bad, it’s a lovely neutral. In fact, it’s super pigmented. Without any primer, the taupe was the hardest shade to wash off! It just wanted to cling to my skin. These colors work really well with my eye color. I personally think they enhance it. I love this palette and it has my full approval!

What do you think of the bareMinerals the Wild Thing palette? Does it make you crave spring? I know it certainly makes me crave The Next Big Thing (palette).
