Sometimes I really like products that I review and then sometimes I really LOVE products that I get for review. Last month I told you about bareMinerals READY™ Eyeshadow and I promised once I sampled them I would share my thoughts. I didn’t want to share them with you until I knew you could purchase them on your own because they’re just that amazing. So amazing I’m already thinking about which sets I want to buy to add to my collection.
I was sent 3 sets to review, 2 duos and 1 quad.
The Promise includes Aspire and Vow. Aspire is a very pretty and subtly shimmering gold and Vow is a matte brown. They’re a great duo to balance the bright with an easier neutral. It makes a great smokey eye that’s not a harsh black.
The Vison includes Illusion and Mirage and it’s my favorite set and is what I’m wearing in the pics at the top of the post. Illusion is a soft light blue that’s very wearable and Mirage is a GORGEOUS shimmering blue that has a cool burgundy undertone. Mirage changes color every time I look at it and I love it more every time I put it on.
The Elements includes Air, Fire, Earth and Water. Air is a shimmering champagne, Fire is a very surprisingly wearable orange, Earth is a dove grey shade that I’ve also worn a lot and Water is a very gorgeous blue.
These shadows look like your typical pressed eyeshadows but they’re not. The texture is so unique. When I swipe my brush against them the feel almost like a soft cream. The pigment builds up beautifully and they last all day (I also wear all eyeshadow with a primer, so I’m sure that helps too). Hands down, these might be the best shadow compacts I’ve ever seen. They sell all of the duos and quads in a complete set for $420 and if I had that kind of cash to drop I would buy them all. You definitely need these in your makeup bag. You will not be disappointed.
