READY Eyeshadow 4.0 - null
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.
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.
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.
Love the ready eye shadows! They last forever and are so beautiful and versatile. And who wouldn't love the added anti-aging benefits!
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!
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.
High-Quality, Beautiful Eyecolor
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.
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.
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.
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 :-)
