Rated 2 out of 5 by JMEG Good colors, not-so-good product
As a brown-eyed gal, I really LOVE the colors in the A-List palette. However, the shadow doesn't stay on. AT ALL. I use a primer and still get a ton of creasing and after about 2-3 hours it flakes off and bleeds into the corners. So I basically look a bit worse for wear. Similar quality to the typical drugstore brands.

oh my goodness i just bought 'the dream sequence' quad and 'the last call' duo, im soooo in love with these shadows. im so used to nude colored shadows for everyday looks and these shadows bring so much color back into my life. i plan on buying more palettes!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Patch The A List
This is my favorite. Blends well, and lasts all day without running onto the checks like other brands I have tried. Does tend to settle into the crease of the eye, but I don't use a primer and am sure that would make a difference.

I bout the Rare Find because I wanted a soft green and I thought the other colors would work well together. I'm more than please with all four of them. I used to use Warmth under my crease shadow and now I don't need to because of the colors included. I like the two lighter colors as well. One is sparkling and one is matte, so you can go from day to night. Like all BM shadows I find the pigmentation great and the shadows last all day even without primer. I would highly recommend these palettes to anyone who doesn't like loose shadows. This definitely won't be the last one I buy.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lyric LOVE, love, love these pallets!
I just bought two of the 4 combos and adore them.....The A list and The Truth. Both are beautifully paired with the colors in each and they last all day w/o issue. I always wear eyelid primer so haven't had any trouble with creasing or loss of color over time. I mix and match with everything, amd these do well with that too. No complaints.
Rated 4 out of 5 by VickiMcB Great colors!
This was my first Ready Eyeshadow purchase, in "The Truth". Truth be told, I don't use all the colors. They are so close in shade that it's hard to get definition between the colors. SO, when I use this 4.0, I use it with other palettes to get a black or grey color to blend it. The light color is fine with any of the others for a 2-shaded eye, but honestly I don't use all of the 4 colors together often.
On a different note, the READY shadows travel great! I don't use the included applicator because it is the foamy applicator, which I despise. I leave it in there for touch-ups on the go, but I normally use other BM brushes to apply at home.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TBell Great product
I have The Soundtrack and using the palette is so much easier than the loose powder eyeshadows. The bottom left color in the Soundtrack is a gorgeous glittery gold that I wear almost every day. I wish I could afford all of these. The colors go together perfectly, last all day, don't make a mess in the bathroom with powder everywhere and are just plain simple and easy. Great makeup.
Rated 4 out of 5 by PatriceB Great option for quick makeup
This is a great pallet, especially when you're pressed for time. I wouldn't say the formula blends well onto the skin, but the colors blend well together making the overall effect look well-blended. The pressed powder pots are very shallow, but you only need a small amount. The pigmentation level varies between colors. You will probably need to experiment a bit to obtain the look you want. I end up lightly pressing the brush on the color and lightly pressing it to my eyelid, loading more on the brush when needed and building to the color density I want. Overall, great pallets. I have The Truth, The Rare Find, and The Happy Place. I'm pleased with all three. I have brown hair and blue eyes and they all look good. I especially like The Happy Place. The colors complement my light skin with golden undertones better than I expected.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FLBeachBlonde Great buy!
Love the ready eye shadows! They last forever and are so beautiful and versatile. And who wouldn't love the added anti-aging benefits!
Rated 5 out of 5 by WhedonFan Love this eyeshadow!
After 10 years of wearing the same makeup colors (I have very little imagination for makeup colors myself and in 2 makeovers at 2 different brands I was given the exact same colors.) I saw a video on the Bare Minerals website demonstrating application of The Happy Place and complimenting lip and cheek colors and I decided to give the whole look a try.
I have never been so happy with my makeup before! Just taking the tips from the insert in the box, you can have 3 different looks: one casual for everyday, the another slightly more fancy and with the addition of an eyeliner (I use Round the Clock Waterproof 11pm), you have a great evening look!
I've gotten so many compliments on this look. People will ask me what color my eyes are, because the shadows bring out different shades. They're just plain old brown, BTW. :)
Highly recommend this product!
Rated 5 out of 5 by DiamondP Eyeshadow 4.0 Palettes
I have three 4.0 palettes: The Afterparty, The Rare Find, and The Happy Place. Of these, my favorite is The Afterparty, for the sole reason that I tend toward silvers and black with eyeshadow to begin with.
However, each one that I have is versatile and is flattering. I've never worn brown or pink eyeshadow before Bare Minerals because it tends to make me look sallow, but I've never had that problem with any of these. They can be used when you're in a hurry, but want to look like you're composed, they are perfect for work, for school, for a day with the kids, a coffee date, or a night out on the town. While you have to know what you want from them and how to use them, these eyeshadows can do anything.
They're incredibly long-lasting, especially if you use eyeshadow primer, and very little eyeshadow needs to be used. I've had one palette for over 6 months, use it regularly, and it barely looks like it's been touched.

I have The A List and The Truth.
I really love these. They are so much easier to use than the pots of loose shadow, they last all day, and they are simply beautiful shades.
I'd give 4.5 stars if i could- only two issues were that I found that I really need to use eye primer in order to get the full benefit of these- I kind of have unnaturally oily lids, though, so it could just be me- but without primer, they start to fade after about 6-7 hours and end up creasing by the end of the day. Second, the lighter shades run out faster than the darker ones- it would be better to size each shade accordingly so they all run out at once.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Travelgal Best eyeshadow ever...
Love the colors, the feel, the look. The best eyeshadow I have ever owned. Day time great. Go a little heavier for evening. Simply the best.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Moe92 Everyday Look
I love this pallet, I use this one on a regular bases. Great natural look for everyday wear and last all day. This is one I will continue to go back for.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SandraS I love these colors!
I received my eye shadow last week and have been playing around with it. I've worn them for the last three days and love them. The peach and purple together really are happy. I love that it's called "The Happy Place" because it reminds me of Disney World and that really is my happy place :-)
Rated 5 out of 5 by PaulaT93 I love this eyeshadow
It doesn't crease or wear off after having it on for 12 plus hours. It's amazing.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Poncemmr Beautiful color - evening hue
These colors are wonderful for evening glamour!
Rated 4 out of 5 by threeblessings Glad I gave it a try
The Dream Sequence was chosen for me by a boutique consultant. I probably never would have chosen it for myself as I tend more toward neutrals. Whenever I wear this palette, my preschooler says he likes my "eye polish." It's a definite standout, but since the colors are buildable, I can go as light or as bold as I like. The colors go on super smooth but I do use a brush for more control.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mel76 Silky Smooth
I own The Truth and Happy Place and they are my favorite eyeshadow palettes. The colors are gorgeous and don't leave any fall out. They feel so silky smooth and are easy to blend.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Trishubb great colors
I love these colors; they go on smoothly and do not cake up after being on all day. the color stays natural and lasts all day. I will be buying other eye palettes.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kay792 Fav Palette
This has to be my favorite palette! I think the colors are amazing they're definitely for an everyday look! Also I have received so many compliments on these colors!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cienne Worth it
When buying eye shadow, I've always just picked up whatever was the least expensive and the colors I liked. I like variety, so I usually pick the "four pack". This shadow was more money than I've ever spent on eye shadow, but SO WORTH IT! I'm never been more pleased with my eye shadow. I want to buy all the colors now. It applies nicely and is there all day. Even though I've always given some effort to my eyes (I think they are my best facial feature), I've never gotten compliments like I have with these shadows. I hear something nice every day. Thank you!
Rated 5 out of 5 by 0natural Great for everyday polished looks
I love the way the colors blend and they work great with my skin tone. The colors work great for everyday wear.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Farmmom I love BE Ready eyeshadow!!
I love the Ready eyeshadows!!! They are quicker than the loose powder eyeshadows (although I love those, too) Go on beautifully, stay on all day.
Rated 5 out of 5 by AshBlue BEST EYESHADOW EVER HANDS DOWN
I cannot express my love for these eyeshadows enough to you. They are the perfect creamy texture and pigmented so well that you do not need to use a lot. I have worn the eyeshadow to work with no eyelid primer and the shadow lasts all day for me at work (8-6). I then always wash it off but it would probably last even longer. With the eyelid primer, it would probably be even more perfect if that is even possible. The colors are beautiful. I have light blue eyes (like an ice blue or sky blue) and I bought "The Truth" and the "The Soundtrack." For blue eyes, neutral tones are usually always best and browns and golds will really make your eyes POP. "The Truth" is more of a natural day look and I can use "The Soundtrack" for a more glammed up look. But both could be used for any event really with the right application. I love "The Elements" but did not get it because I just don't think it's right for blue eyes but the colors are unique and gorgeous. They would be perfect for brown eyes.
Rated 5 out of 5 by venus nothing in the world like it.
I am so in love with the ready quads duo and 8.0. There is nothing likes this out there anywhere. At first I was not sure if I wanted to try this, since I love the loose shadows and you can get soild eye shadows anywhere. One day during a sail I tried one. I will admit they are nothing like the eyeshadows at the drug store. They seem to give my eyes a glow and lit from within look that drug store eyeshadow simply cannot do. I got rid of all my drug store eyeshadow and not only wear eyeshadow fron BE, I hope they make more of these in the future becaue I am in love with them , they are worth it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pokilani Always ready!
I have three quads, two duos, an 8.0 and eye shadows in the Light Show palette and Fired Up (Sephora). I can say without a doubt that these are my all time favorite shadows.in the quads I have The Truth, which is a wonderful everyday neutral. I use the Happy Place and the A- List when I'm wanting a little more color. I love every single one of these quads. The shadows go on so beautifully and blend so well. I can honestly say that my makeup has never looked better. Before the ready shadows, I only wore shadows on occasion. Now I wear them nearly every day because they are just so much fun and make me feel really pretty. The nice thing about the quads is that you can create a subtle day look and use the same palette and bump it up for the evening. I use the eye primer and these shadows last all day and well into the evening. I can't say that about other products I have used in the past.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amleigh Try the Readies!!
I have been a BE girl for like a decade. I am a lover of the loose eye shadows that BE has made forever. I recently decided to try the Ready Eyeshadows and I was blown away with how silky smooth they were. They glide on so wonderfully. Also, there seems to be more saturation of color in the Readies that the you don't necessarily get from the loose shadows (though I love the buildable nature of the loose =D ). I love love love these and think that everyone should give them a try!! =D
Rated 5 out of 5 by BeautyQueen87 THE A LIST
I absolutely " the a list" pallet! the colors are so pretty, you can do a smokey eye with the classic white and black or mix it up with the pink and purple shades. i get lots of compliments on my make up. i wear this daily, during the day you can do it a little lighter and darken it up when going out! this pallet is perfect and by far my favorite!
Rated 5 out of 5 by luvdaffs surprised with these colors
These shadows are great for getting rid of puffy eyes! I have 3 already.
The color choices are interesting and I have tried a few new colors. Love the gold with mossy green and auburn. I usually stay brown, so I was surpised at how pretty this red green and gold looked together. Thanks!
