Product Alert -- bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 in The Nude Beach

Another month, another new Ready Eyeshadow palette from bareMinerals.

If it seems like just yesterday that I was talking about the bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 in An Affair to Remember, it's because it kind of was.

And despite the fact that I need another eyeshadow palette like I need a hole in the head, when I saw the new Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 in The Nude Beach, I knew I had to have it.

I'm not going to do a full review on it because I've gone on and on about how fabulous the Ready eyeshadow formula is -- and the quality is right there with the shades in this palette -- so you know I'd recommend them based on that criteria alone.

But I will discuss the shades a little, so you can decide if it's a must-have for your collection or not.

(As much as I love the palette, I don't think it's a no-brainer buy for everyone.)

The palette contains eight shades: Tan Lines, a metallic dark peach copper; Nude Beach, a shimmery light sand; Bare Skin, a metallic copper rose; Pure, a light matte peach; In The Buff, a metallic light golden peach; Natural, a matte light cream; Santorini, a metallic taupe; and Skinny Dip, a light, iridescent pink.

If you're a bareMinerals fan, you may notice that some of the shades, such as Nude Beach and Bare Skin, have the same names as some of the brand's loose shadows and the colors are definitely similar.

While the shades in the palette are all gorgeous -- Tan Lines, Bare Skin, In The Buff, Santorini, and Skinny Dip are the standouts for me -- you may notice that they're all sort of light or mid-tone shades. The effect on the eye is a pretty natural look -- I think that would be especially true if you have medium or darker skin.

Though I think they would look really beautiful on bronzed or tan skin... but that's just a guess because I am paler than damn snow.

Still, with the exception of Skinny Dip, I wouldn't say any of the shades are particularly unique, which means you may be able to dupe them pretty easily.

I like the convenience of having all these shades in one palette, though, because I feel like I could travel with just this and get some really pretty natural looks for a low-key vacation.

The Nude Beach comes in the usual black rubberized Ready packaging.

Right now, it's only available at QVC (for the featured price of $36.36 plus s/h) but the black packaging makes me suspect that it will eventually make its way to other retailers that sell bareMinerals, where it will likely sell for $40, the usual price for the Ready 8.0s.

Are you tempted by the bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 in The Nude Beach?
