bareMinerals The Last Call Ready Eyeshadow Duo

bareMinerals The Last Call Ready Eyeshadow Duo ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains two shades: On the Rocks (blueberry) and Shaken Not Stirred (jeweled navy). 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.).

On the Rocks is a vibrant purple-blue with a blue iridescence. The finish is mostly matte, aside from the subtle iridesent shimmer. It’s a pretty spectacular color–I don’t really have anything like it that I can think of. MAC Cobalt is darker, bluer, which is the same issue with MAC Royale–so much darker, much bluer. The texture of this shade was silky soft, and it applied smoothly, evenly, and had good color payoff.

Shaken Not Stirred is a blackened navy blue with subtle navy blue shimmer. MAC Lunar is a little lighter/bluer. MAC Shop & Drop is similar but has finer shimmer. Bobbi Brown Blue Onyx is very similar in color. The texture was a bit drier than the formula is in general, but it wasn’t too dry. It yielded good color payoff.

I can’t get over the awesomeness that is On the Rocks; it’s so vibrant! It’s blue, it’s purple, it’s iridescent–such a complex, lovely color to see.  The navy blue of Shaken Not Stirred certainly complements On the Rocks, so the two can be worn together for a bright, navy smoky eye.  Both shades wear really well; a solid eight hours over bare lids (but some fading after nine hours), and absolutely no problems even after ten hours when worn over a primer.  Shaken Not Stirred could be a little bit softer/denser in texture, to make it a real knock out, but it applies intensely and blends out fairly easily despite the drier texture.

    I have this one and I love it :)

    I love the quality of the BE pressed shadows, they’re truly amazing and really pigmented I think they are truly worth a buy! :-)

  3. You’re right, Christine, this is a pretty awesome duo! I can’t think of anything else like On The Rocks. And HELLO, color payoff! :)

    I couldn’t find this one on Sephora last night. Is this only exclusive to BE? I saw a tutorial with this one where the girl used a very light shade on her brow and lid then sort of a grey-taupe in as a blending color then used SNS from the duo in her crease and OTR from this on her inner corner, tear duct area. It was a fun way to wear the colors.

  7. Love this! Definitely going on my “To Buy” list.

  8. Emily

    Do you know when or if these duos will be hitting sephora?

  9. Katie

    On the Rocks is STUN-ning! I’d love a nail polish in that color.

  10. My GOD–look at the pigmentation!!! Even from the swatch photos, I can tell that these are INCREDIBLE! Why, again, have I not tried these Bare Minerals Ready shadows?? I suck!…and will have to immediately remedy this by getting one of these gorgeous duos this weekend!

  11. on the rocks looks like a sugar pill color.

    I’m really loving this eyeshadow duo, ‘on the rocks’ is so gorgeous and I have nothing like it! ‘Shaken not stirred’ reminds me a little bit of my l’oreal infallible 24hr eyeshadow in ‘midnight blue’ except ‘shaken not stirred’ looks a bit more purple-ish. I was wondering if there are any fall-out issues w/ these shadows?

    •  @Jessi Q Nope! :) They’re really soft, so you don’t have to jab at the shadow to get it onto the brush – like you don’t need a lot of product to get good color payoff on the lid, so if you jab and fill up the brush like you might with a drier texture (MAC and NARS tend to have drier textures/harder textures), you might get too much.  Definitely no fall out during wear!

    Christine, will you be doing a makeup look with this? I always love it when you demonstrate how it looks on, and you do some pretty awesom combos too.

    I would have loved to see how this looked on your eyes. The navy color looks like a beautiful crease/liner color
