Of course when Bare Escentuals released their pressed shadows, I had to check it out. During this years Sephora VIB sales, I grabbed a bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0 in The Scenic Route.
From the Sephora website:
What it is:
An eye shadow duo of pure, intense color with antiaging benefits.
What it does:
BareMinerals READY™ Eyeshadow provides exceptionally vivid, long-wearing complementary colors in an ultra-smooth, silky texture for effortless application and seamless blendability. Powered by bareMinerals' proprietary SeaNutritive Mineral™ Complex along with powerful antioxidants, cold-pressed borage oil, caffeine and cucumber, these ingredients are known to deliver antiaging benefits including depuffing and antioxidant protection for a softer, smoother, revitalized eye area. It looks like a powder, but feels like a cream and delivers a beautifully vivid color.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
Size: 0.1 oz
The Scenic Route (golden snowflake/ brilliant sage) is a brilliant duo of white gold and a golden khaki brown. The colors are absolutely vivid, and though I can't comment on the anti-aging benefits, this duo does glide on and wear effortlessly.
I was impressed with the staying power and blendability of these shadows. I find them much better than the loose product. Be warned, the golden snowflake side of this duo may look light, but it is mighty and packs a whopping pigment. This is likely the most pigmented white gold I've ever seen and I'm enamored with it.
Here is a quick eye look I did using The Scenic Route. The liner is Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Liner in Smog and the mascara is Le Metier de Beaute Anamorphic Lash Mascara in Jade.
Bare Escentuals bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0 retail for $20 each and are available at Sephora and Ulta. I will definitely be bringing you more of these duos in the future! A++++ Bare Escentuals!! Thank you!
