bareMinerals The Hidden Agenda Ready Eyeshadow Duo ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains two shades: Stealth (apricot chiffon) and Undercover (glistening granite). 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.).

Stealth is a soft, pastel orange (very much the apricot they describe) with a satiny finish. The texture is soft, dense, and buttery, which resulted in excellent color payoff. MAC Orb is more beige. Inglot #330 is lighter, yellower. Dolce & Gabbana Jewels is slightly darker. bareMinerals Nirvana is more orange and frosted.

Undercover is a dark, steely taupe–very gray with a hint of brown and almost plum undertones. The texture is still soft but not as dense as Stealth. It has great pigmentation. MAC Dynamic Duo 3 is similar, slightly darker. Urban Decay Mushroom is darker and browner. MAC Keep Your Cool is very similar. Giorgio Armani #4 is browner. Chanel Illusoire is more frosted.

It’s an interesting color combination; Stealth is very warm-toned, while Undercover has strong gray tones, so it is a cooler color. They can work together, but it’s not as classic of a combination (which isn’t a bad thing!).  Both shades applied beautifully, and they were easy to blend on the eyes.  When I tested the wear, I was able to get eight hours of wear with and without a primer; there was some minor fading around the very edges after nine hours when worn without a primer.  bareMinerals’ duos are some of the best eyeshadows on the market.
