SeaNutritive Mineral?! an exclusive complex by Bare Escentuals along with powerful antioxidants, cold-pressed borage oil, caffeine, and cucumber to deliver what the test showed on the 52 women. Best of all, it feels like a cream even though it looks like a powder.

Here are two pictures of the palette depicted under the sun. Notice how subtle the shimmers are on Lights Down.

The colors itself proves to be very pigmented and ultra smooth in application. Finally, you can see Lights Down at the very end with subtle amounts of shimmers. All 4 shades glide on like butter and last until they’re removed. There is no smudging or fading at all.

    The only thing good about this palette is the creamy texture and easy application. Other than that the colors aren’t the greatest.

    Call me dumb but I never knew they had 4 color palettes instead of duos…

      I think it’s because we see duos more often than quads.

    The colors doesn’t look all that appealing. Maybe this brand has better looking palettes. Just my 2 pennies.
