READY Eyeshadow 4.0 in The Main Event contains four stunning complementary shades that are like butter to the touch and blend with incredible ease. READY shadows are consistently well-pigmented, and well worth the value. I honestly can’t think of a time I’ve been disappointed with a shade in this formula. In the swatches below, please note the pigment I achieved in the photo was with a single pass. Pretty pigmented! (Swatches completed without primer.)

Shades included:

  • Celebrate — butter cream
  • Ball Gown — nude pearl
  • Cheers — platinum pearl
  • Stiletto — chocolate plum with glitter (minimal glitter fallout)

The mini READY Luminizer in The Magic Moment is a gorgeous warm pale peach sheen I wore lightly over my blush and along the bridge of my nose all weekend. I received several compliments not about my makeup, but about how nicely my skin was “glowing”. I have this product to thank! It weighs in at 4.5g, not quite full size, but still generous enough to last a while in your stash. This is another READY product that is decently pigmented, so a lighter hand will work best.

Glamour Blush is a warm candy pink blush with a soft focus finish and a teeny bit of micro-sparkle. It’s silky, lightweight, and doesn’t overpower the rest of your makeup. It adds the perfect amount of healthy flush!

Have you tried any of the lippies from the Marvelous Moxie collection yet? They aren’t the slightest bit sticky (to me!), and they stay on without pooling in the lines of my lips—which can sometimes be a problem with glosses. There’s a little bit of a vanilla mint fragrance and flavor, but it dissipates after a few minutes (just in case you’re sensitive to fragrance or flavor). Dazzler is a warm melon glimmering shade that imparts just a hint of color on the lips, and a ton of shine. I wish this were a shade in the regular collection!

Fans of original Mineral Veil will probably like this just as well—it’s the Brightening Pearl Mineral Veil Finishing Powder, and it has a special ability to refract light. What that means is it gives a soft-focus look to the skin that softens shadows. I couldn’t even swatch this product for you because it’s so transparent, but it adds just a speck of glow to the skin. It’s not overly noticeable so that someone knows there’s something shimmery on your skin. It’s just enough to add a subtle pearlescent finish, and only you know it’s there. It’s so, SO very pretty as the finishing touch.

Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara volumizes, lengthens, and thickens lashes, and it’s a nice bold black shade to make lashes really pop. Due to its unique brush, it does a great job of separating lashes as well. It’s not waterproof, but it is long-wearing. I haven’t experienced any flaking or smudging with Lash Domination.

The Smoke & Define Double-Ended Kohl & Liquid Eyeliner is a first for me from bareMinerals. One end is a very long-wearing brown kohl (I found it to be waterproof and it did not want to budge!), while the other end is an easy-to-use pen tip liquid eyeliner in an intense black. The liquid eyeliner isn’t waterproof, but it is long-wearing. I didn’t find it to migrate too much, it really stayed put.

Also included are two brushes. The handles aren’t full size, but they’re not too small either. One is your contour blush brush, and the other is a slender tapered eyeshadow brush. The components are gorgeous rose gold like the rest of the set, and they’re nice enough that I’d even use them outside of this collection.

Bottom Line…

Don’t miss this! It’s an exceptional value for a stunning holiday look. It might be hard to give as a gift since you’ll probably want to keep it for yourself. Get two if you can!
