READY Eyeshadow 2.0 - null
I have used the loose eyeshadow and like it both for it's color and it's staying ability (it can be a bit messy when spilled). Recently, I purchased the Ready Eyeshadow duo in The Showstopper. Not only do I have to use what seems to be more than normal to have the color show up, but, by end of day I look somewhat faded. I do use primer underneath and have never had this problem before so I can only conclude it is the shadow. Very disappointed that I have spent this money and now have to go in search of another shadow to purchase.
I love the READY eyeshadow line!!
I love thes eyeshadows. They are easy to apply (less messy than the loose powders) and they last all day and stay smooth! They don't crease or slide.
The big plus though, I was amazed. My daughter is a synchronized swimmer. At a recent meet, we forgot to pack her make-up bag (she is 11 so I don't invest in great make-up for her yet#, so I used my own eyeshadow. I applied a very small bit of primer to help hold the shadow and then heavily applied the blue shadow early that morning. After four routines wearing goggles and then two routines without #therefore there was a lot of eye rubbing), the eyeshadow was just as fresh and vibrant as when I applied it that morning! It didn't even smudge or wear off at all! I was amazed!
Why Mess With A Good Thing?
After all the hype and then seeing such pretty colors, I had to purchase and try out the Ready eye shadows. The color palette I went with was the 15 Minute, which was actually quite pretty, but I had a terrible reaction where my eyelids turned red, burned, and swelled up. This reaction started happening about half-way through the day...at work! Needless to say, it wasn't fun. After returning it to the BE store, I exchanged it for the original powder eye shadow formula. No problems! My only wish on THAT front would be that they come up with a different container so it doesn't spill all over when traveling.
Nice colors but doesn't last long
I tried the Inspiration shade along with one of the shadow primers. The shadow colors look amazing when I first apply it, but unfortunately the color doesn't last long. Even when I use a primer, the color smudges and fades and I find myself having to touch up throughout the day. I've only been using Bare Minerals for a few months and I love their foundations, however I don't know if I'll use this shadow again.
LOVE this easy to use palette!
Use an all over eyelid primer first, and then when you use these eyeshadow palettes the shadow will stay on all day and look wonderful from morning to night, without any touch ups! I LOVE these pressed eyeshadows so much, they are quick and easy and no fallout all over my face like I get with the loose eyeshadows. And feel so silky and smooth on my eyes! I have "The Epiphany" and I am getting "The Vision" I am excited :)
For what it's worth
If you smile or laugh a lot beware of this shadow. It streaks terribly. Take a look in the mirror and you'll see streaks of color like rain washed over your lids. It will require touch ups all day long. I love most of the products but these are horrible.
I will never use anything else.
I have fallen in love with these eyeshadows. When I read they were making solid eye shadows I was not sure if I was going to like them. At first I felt they wer no different than the ones you get at a drug store. One day I bought one (pardiese foud) and I worn it for one day. The next day I worn my druge store eyeshadow. I could tell a big difference. These are different from the ones at the drug store, they are better. They seem to give you a nice lit from within glow, that drug store eyeshadow simply cannot do. After that day I got rid of all my drug store eyeshadow and now I use only BE ready eyeshadow. My only compliant is that I wish they had better tips and demos , the once now just don't work . They need more video demos for the eyeshadows that helps.
I love this eye shadow set! I use the colors individually and together and have gotten so many compliments from both friends and complete strangers. I also pair the shadow with my eye primer and it literally lasts ALL DAY long without smudging or getting messy in the crease of my eyelid. This is such an awesome eye color duo!
My Favorite Duo
I bought The Last Call. It's great for day and even better for night. It comes with a small diagram of how to wear it during the day as well as night. I use the dark blue as a eyeliner as well. I'm really happy with it.
I purchased this in "Nick of Time", it looks like a basic cream paired with brown on the website but it's a pretty pinkish cream with a mauve. The color saturation is amazing and it is very long lasting.
