Rated 5 out of 5 by JodyLuvsBareMinerals I LOVE THE MATTE DUO "THE ENLIGHTENMENT"
I am so glad that I found this great beige and brown eyeshadow duo and that it is matte! I wish there were more shades to choose from that had less sparkle to them but I am happy I found this one. BareMinerals eyeshadow stays on beautifully all day long and I use the primer underneath them for eyes. I am so happy that I discovered bareMinerals and that I can feel good about using make up without chemicals!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by MURFREESWORLD Great shadows
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.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mezd 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KAL417 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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunshine1996 Great Product!
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!
Rated 3 out of 5 by LenaBeana 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by colorcandy 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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SarahG 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by AlterEgoTSwift 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dkmann High Society
This is my favorite eye shadow. I first received this as a mini sample and had to buy the full size right away. This one stays in my purse and is my go to look for day or night.
Rated 5 out of 5 by sarah1one Top Shelf is top rate
This is my go to color scheme! It always looks great and has the perfect amount of shimmer. The colors look stunning together and it lasts and lasts. This combo will go with anything and is perfect for a natural, pretty look. Very easy to apply, as well! I can't say enough good things about these eyeshadows!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Cool colors but not long wearing
I bought this as my first ready eye shadow. The colors are very pretty but even with primer it streaks and goes on unevenly. It creases after one hour. The mineral loose powder shadows are Much better. Long wearing and strong hue

by Michka the top shelf rocks
super beautiful vanilla/ pink and nude pale bronze colors. I am a bartender and cocktail waitress by trade, so the names of the pallet and colors caught my eye. I was not disappointed. It's fancy enough to wear every day but not so dramatic and dark to be too much if you wanted to wear this to a business meeting or at the office. I am super pale complexion wise with English and Irish ancestry, so finding colors that compliment and not over power me are difficult. this is a great one for us pale ladies!
Rated 1 out of 5 by JKelly Disappointed
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?
Rated 5 out of 5 by MakeupMaster0233 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by sensitivsally 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ShoppinCVT 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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by ClassySparkle 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!!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by jennycowley 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!
Rated 4 out of 5 by hhalford8990 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!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cdani 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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by MNDancer 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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by azooeydejesusgirl READY Eyeshadow 2.0
I am not a huge eyeshadow person - colors tend to fade/rub off throughout the day, so by the time I came home, I look like a tired raccoon. Not so with these eyeshadows! They feel so creamy/soft on your life and give amazing pigmentation while staying on my eyes all day. They are also easy to pick up from the compact, and easy to travel with.
The colors that come in the Duos are extremely complementary and work so well together. My favorite (so far) is The Vision (described as "sea mist/deep lagoon"). There are such a wide variety of colors, too. Overall, these are great colors, and BE did a great job pairing complementary colors. Can't wait to get more!
Rated 5 out of 5 by VickiMcB Perfect for my daily look!
I use the Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 in the "15 Minutes" and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I also use "The Inspiration" (which is my other fave color combo) and both are just so simple to put on and stay all day. I have dark brown eyes and the light pink and then maroon/purple combos are just stunning on! Thank you BM for A) the color combos, and B) making them in the READY compacts as I travel A LOT for work. I love these!
Rated 5 out of 5 by TiffMarie Perfect for a pop of color. Great for travel
I recently got one of these as part of a holiday package. I picked out the purple/grey combo, and this color combo works great for any eye color or hair color. The palette is small, easy to fit in a travel bag or purse, and is a great way to get a pop of color on your eyes without having to carry around a big box of shadows. I highly recommend getting one (or more) for every travel bag you have!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amleigh Love the Duos
I have a bunch of ready shadows. I have an 8.0, several Quads, and a few 2.0s. I love them all. The color pay off is nice, less mess than the loose (though I still love and use the loose), and travels nicely. The color payoff is great and lasts all day. Just bought the Perfect Storm and think it is a great neutral grey color duo. You just can't go wrong with Bare Minerals READY Shadows. A little goes a long way and all you need is a one soft tap and sweep on to build the color you want. They last forever and a day too. So you get way more than your money's worth. I'm addicted, lol. Hope you enjoy your purchase....I always love mine!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buttercup324 Beautiful, buttery, blendable, wearable eyeshadows
Received a duo in a kit I purchased from Ulta and I couldn't be happier! I didn't know what to expect since I have not tried any of these eyeshadows before, but they have skyrocketed into some of my favorites! They are very pigmented and extremely easy to use. They rival many high end eyeshadows I have tried in the past! I found these so easy to blend and gorgeous on the eyes! Color lasted all day with no fallout whatsoever! Great product!!
