Oooo.. I love a new eyeshadow option in my makeup collection!
This super cute eyeshadow duo is the Bare Minerals READY Eyshadow 2.0 in the shade The Inspiration. There are currently 22 different duo shades to choose from, including neutrals and bold colours also. So many decisions…
I’ve been loving wearing a neutral purple base shadow colour at the moment, as it just makes my brown eyes brighten up and compliments so nicely. It was so difficult to steer away from choosing yet another neutral duo, but this one is subtle enough to mix neutral and purple together.
The Inspiration duo comprises of a pearl pink highlight shade (Muse), with a deep plum with gold glitter throughout (Passion). Both can be applied quite sheer or built up to be quite bold. So far, I am loving the highlight shade, as the pink isn’t so apparent that you can use it as a lid, brow and inner corner highlight without looking OTT. And the pearl finish just adds a really beautiful sheen. Moving onto the plum shade, it’s again, very pretty, but does show up a lot more purple and vibrant on the eye, with that plum undertone disappearing. The fine gold glitter works in really nicely with this duo though, adding some shine and sparkle for brightness.
As you can see in the swatch, they are both super buttery and pigmented with long lasting power. They also blend really nicely which is one of the many good qualities about mineral makeup.
So, the one negative is the packaging. Its beautiful, simple and sleek right from the “hello!” greeting on the protective slip, to the product in the pan, but that matte black finish attracts makeup marks like crazy, just like Nars products. But, I don’t think that will keep me from choosing out more shades in the future.
The Bare Minerals product line including The Inspiration eyeshadow duo is available at Mecca Cosmetica at $27.95AUD (Hello, affordable!).
