bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow Duos: The Nick of Time

bareMinerals The Nick of Time Eyeshadow Duo ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains two shades: Chance and Kismet. This duo launches in October, and it’s touted as a solid eyeshadow with SeaNutritive Mineral Complex that is “creamy, silky smooth” with “seamless blendability” and “stay-true color” that is long-wearing when worn alone without creasing or budging. When worn alone, I was able to wear several of the new duos for 10 hours without an eyeshadow primer. For more details on packaging, please read my original review.

Chance is a creamy, pale beige with flecks of flaky glitter that virtually disappears when the product is used (even swatched). If you look at the swatch, you’d never even think there was any shimmer in the pan. It’s slightly lighter than MAC Blanc Type and less peach compared to Inglot #353. The texture is so lovely with a dense, buttery feel that delivers opaque color.

Kismet is plummy brown with a satiny sheen. It’s like a much, much darker (and plummier) MAC Malt. It’s not quite as rich (or as shimmery) as Chanel Ebloui. The shadow is smooth as silk with excellent color payoff.

The Nick of Time

A-
On one hand, the disappearance of the glitter in the lighter shade means less worry about fall out during application, but on the other, where does it go? If it doesn't adhere to the powder, then it's missing something it should have. This combination of colors would work well to create an office-friendly look.

  1. Not really my style. I’ll be skipping this one.

  2. Kismet kinda looks like Swiss Chocolate from Mac to me.

    This one looks really pretty. I like the name Kismet. :)

    Has too much red in it for me to use – I would get a crying eye look in these shades and the light pink is way to chalky looking.

    I like the look of Kismet in the pan, but hate it when it’s swatched.

  6. Carrie

    I enjoy the play on names, but sadly, Kismet isn’t my color so I guess it isn’t kismet for me to pick this up ;)

  7. Thank you for reviewing these. I can’t wait to see the quads!
