Do I dare tell you what surprise lies within this golden bareMinerals compact? I know that the Ready Eyeshadow quads and duos are on the way, but what I didn’t know is that there’s more to the Ready Eyeshadow series! This November, bareMinerals will release two limited-edition 8-pan palettes of their new solid eyeshadows—and it looks like they’re gonna be pretty snazzy.
This is The Cocktail Hour Ready 8.0 palette, with eight glam shades for eyes. If you haven’t seen the duos and quads I reviewed, you’ll be surprised to know all what goes into a solid bareMinerals shadow—they’re using a proprietary SeaNutritive Mineral™ Complex that’s exclusive to the Ready series. What this means is, you’ll find positively-charged sea minerals, blended with cucumber and cold-pressed borage oil to deliver anti-aging benefits. While I haven’t had a chance to wear any of the shades within The Cocktail Hour yet, I have worn the duos and quads…and I wasn’t disappointed. Let’s put it that way!
Row 1: Black Tie Optional, Icebreaker, Swanky, Spiked
Row 2: Elixir, Invite Only, Libation, Shaken Not Stirred
(These pigments are pretty strong, the swatches were done without any primer.)
Also coming soon, an 8.0 palette called, The Playlist. I haven’t seen it yet in-person, but here’s a little bit of an idea:
These limited-edition Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 palettes will hit Bare Escentuals boutiques on 11-1-11, and retail for $40 each.
