Bare Minerals ‘Ready’ eyeshadows

Bare Minerals original mineral foundation is one of my all time favourite foundations (I also use it as a finishing powder with some liquid foundations too). But exciting news is that they have now launched their new ‘Ready’ range of presser mineral pigment cosmetics. And let me tell you – the eye shadows I’m about to show you here are STUNNING.


The packaging is NARS-esque black rubberised finish. Feels expensive, but gets grubby easily. Each compact includes a decent sized mirror and a little token applicator – I do always wonder who uses the sponge applicators? I’d sooner use my fingers than one of those… but that might just be me.

First up ‘The Showstopper’ a duo of ‘Bravo’ cool blue with shimmer and ‘Encore’ a purple/lilac shimmer. Encore has a little bit of a taupe shade to it when swatched… love it.


Next up is ‘The Nick of Time’ a more neutral shade… ‘Chance’ a matte off-white and ‘Kismet’ a warm toned mid brown with a matte finish. Again, pigmented and creamy… lovely stuff.


And saving the best for last… (well, best in my opinion) here we have ‘The Vision’ with Illusion a matte mint shade and Mirage a gorgeous purple/green/brown amazing shimmery wonder… so pretty. These are so smooth they almost feel like they are mousse/liquid – the pigment is amazing and seriously – how gorgeous is Mirage? The colour combination in this pair is a little more unusual, but I’ll forgive it because it’s so pretty (I’m shallow like that…)


So what do you think of this little peek at the new Bare Minerals Ready range? Tempted to check them out some more?
The range also has some blushers/bronzers (I have a couple of these to show you soon) and eyeshadow quads. Check out the website for more of the shades available. 
The eyeshadows are £19 for a duo.

    Wow they look amazing. I’ve never tried anything from bareMinerals before but I think that is going to have to change sooner rather than later!!
