RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars
COST: $20 for 2 shades, $30 for 4 shades, $40 for 8 shades
THE SKINNY: I waited a really long time to try this product -- it has been out about 6 months -- because of the price and lack of samples available.
And despite the price tag, I love the new bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow. (I bought the "Cocktail Hour"palette.)
The colors glide on super smooth and have the gentleness you would expect from bareMinerals. But the compact eye shadows are far superior to any of the loose shadows you may have tried from this brand in the past. Gone is the messy powder application and container.
The color also lasts all day and my palette came with the perfect combination of colors and highlight shades so I don't have to go digging for something else to pair with it.
New colors are being added all the time to the formula which claims to help "deliver anti-aging benefits including reduced look of puffines." (You can come to your own conclusion here, but I can't really tell a difference.)
KEEP OR TOSS: Keep and cross your fingers for a sale!
CHECK IT OUT: Check out all the color choices and read what other testers have to say -- there are a lot of happy customers -- on the bareMinerals website. You can also order direct, or find Ready Eyeshadow at Bare Escentuals retailers.
