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.).
Tarina Tarantino Mr. Gold/Mr. Silver Eyedream Highlight Duo ($19.00 for 0.26 oz.) is described as a “yellow gold” and an “icy silver.” Each eyeshadow is 0.13 oz., which is over double the average-sized eyeshadow (0.05 oz.), and the price point is very palatable for two shades. A lot of the duos, though, are more basic than not, so whether any are must-haves depends on the size of your stash.
Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Terra Azzurra Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a limited edition, warm-toned summer quad that features a pale white gold, medium-dark fuchsia, coppery orange-coral, and deep, dark molten brown. It’s packaged in a metallic bronze case with a dual-ended sponge-tipped applicator and full-sized mirror inside. The packaging feels and looks luxe, and despite its metallic finish, seemed to keep fingerprints pretty well-disguised.
