bareMinerals Degrees of Dazzling Swatches Review

A while ago Ulta Beauty was having a sale on bareMinerals and I picked up the bareMinerals Degrees of Dazzling Set. I’d seen a look done by Leesha that convinced me it was a must have when I saw it on sale.

My Thoughts
If you like 5 or more of these shadows, I would say go for it! It’s such a great variety of colors. I fell in love with so many of the shades! Rose Gold is a perfect rose gold. Stay Golden is a beautiful gold. Pewter is a lovely metallic. Strawberry Mousse has lovely golden glimmers. Silver Dollar is such a light, bright shade. Golden Pear would make a great lid shade. Iridescent Iris is beautiful (I’ve got an upcoming video tutorial with it). Starry Night is a stunning deep purple with gold glimmers. Yoga is a lovely burgundy. I really like the textures and colors of Charcoal, Nude, Mauve and Emerald.
