READY Eyeshadow 2.0 - null
I love these shadows. They have great pigment, glide on smooth, bendable & last all day.
I would live to see MORE MATTE colors and not just in neutrals!!! It would be even better to have individual pans with a buildable palette like urban decay has.
I have hooded eyes, so the shimmer colors don't work well. It seems most all of the palettes, especially the 4.0 & 8.0 have several shimmer that aren't any use to me. A buildable palette with individual colors would allow you to have exactly what you want though wasting money & products.
The Nick of Time
This review is for The Nick of Time (2 shades). I give this 3 stars because the main color just isnt enough. It is very, very soft. It is not at all dark like in the picture. Its a pretty soft base color in my opinion. And the lighter shade a brow highlighter. It needs more. A couple more colors to bring out some depth and it would be amazing.
Perfect for my purse and easy travel
These pressed eyeshadows pack so much more color and sheen than anything I've ever bought in a grocery store or pharmacy. And they last longer to boot! I love that I don't have to use a lot to get major color, unlike other brands where you have to practically jam the stick into the square to achieve the same amount. It doesn't dry out my eyelids or cake up in the creases. Love the color quality.
Ready to love this eyeshadow!
Awesome stuff. The ready eyeshadows are the best. No primer needed, they stay all day without it. Great selection of colors as well. I want them all!
I love my eye shadow 2.0 in The Cliffhanger. It really makes me brown eyes pop with that touch of purple and looks fabulous with a violet eyeliner. Will purchase more soon definitely!
We're in like, but not love
I have the covert affair, and I'm not sure how I feel about it. The darker "purple" shade came off really red on my skin, and the lighter tan ended up being more sparkly than I thought. It looked pretty whenever I tested it on the back of my hand (at the store), yet now I'm not sure how I feel about it. The shade kind of makes my eyes look red.
I'm wondering if it'll look better if I shade in a darker brown in the crease. I'll probably still test it out a couple of times and see, but I may be taking this one back and exchanging it for a different set.
As far as the actual eyeshadow goes, I like how it feels and think it's pretty bold if you use an eyeshadow primer prior to putting it on. If not, it comes off fairly light, which is great for a subtle work/day look.
ESCAPE IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE!!
Escape is my go to duo when I want to make sure I look great! I have several of the duos and the 8.0 palettes but the escape has the advantage of looking deep and smoky and natural and really eye enhancing at the same time. It is like people say how great you look and then sit and look at you and can't quite put their finger on it because they say, " You aren't even wearing hardly any makeup!" It looks THAT good! I love it because I know I never look overdone but always look great! I may just buy a few of them so I NEVER run out!
Love this eyeshadow. Blends well, can be applied very lightly to darker. Lasts all day long.
Love it, but it isn't a dramatic color
I have the Escape and I love it! It's easy to put on (there is even a picture that comes with it showing you where to apply which color), portable, and lasts all day. But the color isn't as dark and dramatic as you would think. This does however make it perfect for everyday wear
New Favorite Combo
I love the way this duo looks. I feel weird wearing non-netural tones in eyeshadow, and this light brown/sortof gold + dark brown set is perfect. It gives my eyes some depth and definition without screaming, "I'm wearing eyeshadow!" Follow the instructions on the box for best results in terms of what color to put on what part of the eyelid.
