bareMinerals The 15 Minutes Ready Eyeshadow Duo

bareMinerals The 15 Minutes Ready Eyeshadow Duo ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains two shades: Page Six (sandy pink sheen) and Most Requested (burgundy sparkle). This is one of seven new duos for spring/summer.  Each duo is packaged in a rubberized plastic compact with a full-size mirror inside and a sponge-tipped applicator. Each eyeshadow is the size of the average full-size eyeshadow (0.05 oz.).

Page Six is a warm strawberry pink with subtle golden shimmer and a frosted, metallic sheen. It’s soft, smooth, and opaque in color. MAC Rose Light is pinker, not as yellow-toned. Lancome Kitten Heel is a smidgen lighter and has a stronger golden sheen. Inglot #399 is darker. Giorgio Armani #7 is darker, less pink.

Most Requested is a red-toned medium-dark brown with burgundy tones. It also has subtle sivler and ruby sparkle. It has mostly opaque color coverage and applies smoothly. Dolce & Gabbana Cocoa is a little lighter and browner. bareMinerals Kismet is very similar, perhaps a touch browner, and doesn’t have sparkle. Chanel Ebloui is darker.

I’m a huge, huge fan of the Ready Eyeshadows.  The formula is soft, dense, and feels almost creamy, and it applies smooth as silk against the skin, whether over a primer or on bare lids. I get a full eight hours of wear without creasing or fading when I wear the formula on bare lids or over a primer, so it’s great to have that versatility. The 15 Minutes works together, which is always nice, though they are easily used alone or with other eyeshadows you have in your stash. Most Requested has noticeable sparkle, so there is some fall out during application and the majority of the sparkle doesn’t translate onto the lid (gets lost somewhere between the brush and the lid).

    Christine, are you going to review the Phenomenon from the new release?

    This looks lovely – I can really see these working so nicely together…I love brown and pink on eyelids with champagne colours.

  3. DrSuz

    Looks beautiful!! Definitely going on my wish list!

    I think I ALWAYS gravitate towards palettes that have browns and pinks and with your great review, I have added this duo to my “products to check out” list  :) !

  5. Lindsay

    Wow…Page Six is gorgeous!

  6. I LOVE Ready eyeshadows too. I have been searching for a true pink eyeshadow – how does this compare to UD Free Love? I just love how these two colors work together, I will probably have to pick this duo up!

    Is this the same most requested shade (color, texture, etc) as was in the holiday playlist palette? Thanks!

    I was really torn between getting this one and the phenomenon today. I ended up getting the phenomenon but this really does look beautiful as well! I originally went in to get scenic route based on your review but it was sold out. Later. :)

    Just ordered this a few days ago and I can’t wait to get it. I too am a huge fan of the ready shadows. They are amazing and I own quite a few of the duos and quads :).
