bareMinerals Scenic Route Eyeshadow Duo

bareMinerals The Scenic Route Eyeshadow Duo ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains two shades: Breathtaking aned Spectacular. 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.

Bobbi Brown Marrakesh Chic Collection for Fall 2011

Rich Color Eyeshadow ($24.00) (Limited Edition)

This creamy powder delivers intense, pigmented color. It blends onto lids like a cream and builds easily to a super rich shadow with smooth, long-wearing finish that doesn’t crease or smudge for up to 12 hours. An innovative soft press technology allows the natural waxes in the formula to melt into the powder, giving the shadow its unique creamy feel. Apply it on bare lids using your fingers, an eye smudge brush or angled eye shadow brush. Don’t worry about being too precise—this shadow looks most modern when it’s swiped on. For added impact, define your eyes with a gel liner.
