BareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow Duos 2.0

I did some hauling recently!! This time i managed to stay away from blushers and lipsticks, surprise surprise. Hopefully I'm not heading into an eyeshadow craze!!! 

So BareMinerals have always been known as a lose mineral makeup company, basically everything they made, from eyeshadows, blush to face powders and foundations were all in loose form. That's great for those who enjoy them. Personally, i do like the occasional mineral powder and blush but when it comes to pigments, it's a hit or miss and most of the time a miss. Don't get me wrong, i have a couple of pigments from various brands but i generally tend to use them when i have a ton of time to play around with my makeup look, which recently hasn't been very often. So when BareMinerals launched their ready eyeshadow line, which is basically various palettes of pressed shadows, the beauty community was abuzz about it. It took me a while to check them out and I'm sure glad i did.

The Top Shelf and The Epiphany

First impressions, these shadows are super smooth and buttery to the touch. Pigmentation is fantastic and the shade selection is pretty awesome. I think they did a good job pairing a lot of the duos and quads. I purchased mine based on swatches i had seen on Temptalia and if your interested she has a very comprehensive review on all of the palettes they currently have out.

The Top Shelf: Mixologist and Cognac, The Epiphany: A-ha and Foreshadow

I'm guessing this is only the beginning for me, they also have blushers as well as their ever famous mineral veil in pressed form. I must resist!!!


  1. I swatched one of these duos in Kit a while ago. Very nice! I'd love to hear how well they wear on you!!

    1. The prices at Kit are very comparable to the prices in the states as well!!! will definitely do:)
