READY Eyeshadow 2.0 - null
The color doesn't last all day, it fades and even with primer it ended up in the crease of my eyelid... Not impressed at all. I used it maybe three or four times and then I gave up on it. Not impressed and it definitely makes me leery of purchasing other pallets. Although the epiphany pallet is great! The color lasts all day with or without primer and it doesn't end up in the crease of my eyes so who knows... I guess not all eye shadow is created equal?
Easy, Durable, and Colorful
I have had this palette for nearly a year, and I'm still working on finishing it off. I absolutely love the Inspiration colors because they go great with green eyes add a unique flare of sparkle. Not only is this palette a great color combo, but the eye shadow itself lasts all day with the assistance of a primer. I have even gone swimming with the expectation of smears and shadows being the end result, but have happily discovered only a slight fading of the make up. I would recommend this set to anyone, even younger girls because it is convenient and reliable.
Long wearing eyeshadow
I received this product in an ipsy glam bag, unsure of the month, being someone with extremely sensitive skin I was rather hesitant to step outside my normal eye shadows. Boy was i wrong on that one, working 8 hour days in retail with dust, hot light and often a non working air-conditioner not only did this product stay on from 8 am in the morning till i got off work but continued on welll in the night and wee hours of the morning as i am typing this review now. It is most defiantly a product and a brand i would recommend to family friends and even complete strangers i have never met before or will never meet. overall great product.
Some of my favorites
I have bought several duos from BM and I'm very happy with them so far. Some look a little different once I received them but they are still nice colors. I plan to order more of the new colors ASAP! They last all day but I use a primer so I can't say how they do without it. They blend really well especially with the soft focus eye shadow brush. The pigment of the shadow is pretty good with most of the colors especially the dark ones.
Easily Blendable for Everyday Fabulous
I love the Ready 2.0 Eyeshadow in "The Escape" featuring Daydream + Wanderlust (nude crème/brown suede). The colors are true to description and perfectly blend and compliment each other. For work I use more of the crème color, and for the weekends I will blend up to my eye crease the brown suede color, for more dramatic effect. At first I was wondering how the colors would look, but both colors really enhanced the brown within my hazel eye color and really pair well with a variety of my outfits for work. Well done BE!!!!!
Only eye shadow I'll use!
I absolutely love this eye shadow! I have it in Top Shelf and The 15 Minute and love the colors. They are so pigmented and blend really well. I don't care for the applicator that comes with it, but I just keep my mini eye shadow brush in my bag for on the go applications. As long as i put some kind of base on first (well rested concealer, stroke of light) I find that it stays on all day and doesn't crease. I LOVE this product!
Love the shades
I have a mini of The Epiphany and love the colors! Just enough shimmer to give some sass but not enough to look like a bottle of glitter exploded all over my eyes. The palettes last a long time and very little is used to get strong color. I recommend it to everyone.
I just recently bought this duo after having it put on me at the boutique. I love playing with colors with my eyes. I wasn't sure I could pull this off though, being it looked a little darker than I thought. It turned out really nice looking, and I just had to buy it. It blends very nicely and you can create quite a few different looks with the duo. I am curious to try more colors now!
Portable perfect for on the go!
I own two of them, one with apricot and grey and the other with gold and lilac. They come with the mirror and applicator so its perfect for unexpected traveling or nights away from home. I really like the natural look, but lilac is so light, its a good accent to the gold and perfect for every day casual look. Im not as much of a fan of the apricot, it is supposed to complement blue eyes really well, but its just too light. I definitely prefer loose powders to packed shadows, but I jus cant get over how portable these are great for on the go!
Love at first sight!
The READY shadow compacts are a fantastic product. They've completely won me over and nearly converted me totally over from BE's loose powder shadows. The convenience of these compacts really makes them a worthy purchase. I love that the colors are so well-matched, because it takes the guesswork out of putting an eye look together. The Top Shelf duo is my absolute favorite--it's great for everyday, or dressed up for going out.
I really don't care for the applicator that's included--the head is small, the wand is short, and it's awkward for applying the product with any precision. It does the job in a pinch, but I prefer to just keep my BE shadow brushes on hand because they apply the color easily and beautifully.
I also wouldn't recommend wearing these without primer--they crease and melt off in short order if you skip that step--but especially if you mix a little powder in with the primer, these shadows are very vibrant and long-wearing.
Thank you, BE, for making eye color more convenient!
