MAC Take Root Cream Colour Base Swatches, Photos, Review

MAC Take Root Cream Colour Base ($17.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “rich red brown.” It’s a red-toned brown with a hint of warmth, and while it’s opaque and nicely pigmented, it’s not as dark as it looks in the pan. There is a soft, frosted finish that’s not too heavy-handed. The color is similar to MAC Brown Script.

bareMinerals Vision Eyeshadow Duo

bareMinerals The Vision Eyeshadow Duo ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains two shades: Illusion and Mirage. The duo will debut 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.

bareMinerals Showstopper Eyeshadow Duo

Debuting in October, has a new line of bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow — and it’s nothing like their current line-up of mineral eyeshadow. Ready is a solid eyeshadow, but the brand states that they still include the SeaNutritive Mineral Complex (which includes sea minerals with antioxidants, cold-pressed borage oil, caffeine, and cucumber) that deliver “anti-aging benefits for a softer, smoother, revitalized eye area.” The new solid eyeshadow is described as “creamy, silky smooth” with “seamless blendability” with “stay-true color” that can be worn alone and is long-wearing and “won’t smudge or run.”   This review is not evaluating the anti-aging claim, because to truly test to that, one would have to wear these eyeshadows for 6-8 weeks everyday.
