bareMinerals The Magic Act Eye & Cheek Palette
bareMinerals The Magic Act Eye & Cheek Palette

bareMinerals The Magic Act Eye & Cheek Palette ($39.00 for 0.63 oz.) contains six eyeshadows, one highlighter, and three blushes in a fold-up palette. Each eyeshadow is 0.04 oz., while the Luminizer is 0.09 oz. and each blush is 0.10 oz. It’s a nice palette for someone who’s looking for a range of warm-toned neutrals in a variety of finishes paired with blush. There are a lot of neutral-themed palettes out there now, so this might not be a must-have, but at least this one is high quality and the added pairing of blushes makes it slightly different. If you’re a regular Ready fan, you may find this contains too many shades you already have as there are a few from previous holiday sets and/or permanent range.

Celebrate is a light, yellow beige with subtle, warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth consistency. It wore well for ten hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Fortune is a softened, light-medium warm-toned pink with a satin-matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation with a soft, buttery texture. The color wore well for ten hours before fading slightly. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Shazam is a peach, muted by beige, with a frosted finish and warm undertones. The texture was a little powdery, though it had good color payoff. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

A-Ha is a warm, golden bronze with a frosted, slightly metallic finish. It had nice color payoff with a soft, buttery consistency that went on fairly smoothly. It stayed on for nine and a half hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Pumped is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, yellow-ish undertones and a soft, golden sparkle. It had great pigmentation, while the texture was soft and silky. It didn’t start to fade until after nine and a half hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Foreshadow is a taupe brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satin-matte finish. It had good color payoff with a fairly soft, silky consistency that blended well on the skin. It lasted for nine and a half hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Premiere is a gold-shimmered, peach-beige with warm undertones and a luminous finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that could be easily blended out for a lighter look or applied for a very glowing finish. It wore well for eight hours on me (and the formula only claims eight-hour wear). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Close Call is a rosy, medium brown with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had nice color payoff with a soft, blendable consistency. It wore well for eight hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Natural High is a gold-shimmered, medium pink with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation–but it didn’t seem as pigmented as the standalone version I have–with a soft, smooth texture. The color wore well for eight and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Indecent Proposal is a muted, plummy pink with a satin finish. It had decent color payoff but was a little powdery–the texture wasn’t as silky or as blendable as the other three shades. This blush wore well for seven and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

bareMinerals I Love the Night Life Eyeliner Set
bareMinerals I Love the Night Life Eyeliner Set

bareMinerals I Love the Night Life Eyeliner Set ($29.00 for 0.06 oz.) includes five shades of the brand’s Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eye Liner. As was the case with Afternoon Delights, it’s a frustrating formula to use, as the consistency is very dry and stiff. It drags and pulls at the skin, so the pigmentation suffers a lot, and even when you attempt to layer, the color is often uneven.

True Blue is a medium-dark blue with a pearly sheen. It had sheer color payoff in one stroke, and it wasn’t buildable to much more than semi-opaque, as the drier consistency made it hard to layer. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Constant Copper is a warm-toned, bronze brown with a pearly finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage in one pass, and it never built up more than that as it was very stiff. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Absolute Black is a medium-dark, neutral black with a satin-matte finish. Again, the formula yielded sheer color payoff paired with a really dry, stiff consistency made it difficult to apply. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Certainly Sterling is a brightened silver with a metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff, and it was a little creamier compared to the other shades, though it was still quite dry. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Steadfast Slate is a medium gray-black with silver shimmer and sparkle. It had sheer pigmentation in one stroke, and I really couldn’t get it to build to more than semi-sheer–and it was incredibly uneven. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

bareMinerals Afternoon Delights Eyeliner Set
bareMinerals Afternoon Delights Eyeliner Set

bareMinerals Afternoon Delights Eyeliner Set ($29.00 for 0.06 oz.) includes five shades of the brand’s Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eye Liner. It’s a very disappointing formula, and I don’t recommend the formula, period, or this set, due to poor color payoff that is paired with a stiffer, drier formula. The wear is average, which is “good news” compared to all the other characteristics one tends to look for in a go-to eyeliner. I can’t believe they discontinued their Round the Clock formula for this, as these are some of the worst eyeliners I’ve tried in recent memory.

Immortal Emerald is a muted, forest green with a pearly finish. Sheer color payoff that’s not even buildable, due to the very stiff, dry texture. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Eternal Bronze is a medium-dark, warm-toned brown with subtle gold sparkle over a satin finish. It was hard to apply, as the consistency was so dry, and the resulting color payoff was semi-opaque after many layers–at best. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Timeless Taupe is a warm-toned, taupe brown with a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. This was the creamiest of the three pencils, though it was still stiff and dragged a lot on the lash line. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Stay Golden is a brightened, yellow gold with a frosted finish. It was sheer, dry, and painful to use on the lash line due how stiff it was.
See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Perpetual Plum is a muted, plummy-brown with gold shimmer over a satiny finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff in one stroke, but it wasn’t buildable as the consistency was just too dry. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

bareMinerals The Guilty Pleasures Eyeshadow Duo
bareMinerals The Guilty Pleasures Eyeshadow Duo

bareMinerals The Guilty Pleasures Eyeshadow Duo ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a set of warm-toned shades in peach and brown. The two colors playoff each other well, as they can be blended subtly for a more contrasting look or blended more for a smooth gradient. I wish the darker brown shade was more pigmented, though.

Shhh… is described as an “apricot nectar.” It’s a light-medium, peach orange with warm undertones and a soft, satin finish. It had good color payoff that applied smoothly and evenly. The finish is lovely as it adds dimension but doesn’t look shimmery on the lid. It wore well for ten hours before fading. MAC Apricot Blend #3 (LE) is darker. Kat Von D Geek (LE) is slightly darker. Tom Ford Beauty Escapade (LE, $40.00) is a cream product, lighter. MAC Arena (P, $15.00) is darker, browner. bareMinerals Tres Chic (P) is yellower. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Yes Please is described as a “cinnamon brown shimmer.” It’s a softened, medium-dark brown with subtle warm undertones and a satiny finish. It had decent pigmentation, but it wasn’t as pigmented as the Ready formula is usually, which was disappointing. The texture was soft and smooth, so it was still easy to apply and blend out on the skin. It wore well for ten hours before fading. Stila Character (P) is slightly darker. Chanel Tisse Mademoiselle #1 (P) is lighter. Kat Von D Disintegration (P) is darker. theBalm #8 (P, $6.50) is darker. Sleek MakeUP Entwined (P, $9.99) is similar. MAC A Medley of Mauves #4 (P, $21.00) is warmer. MAC Soba (P, $15.00) is warmer, lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
