bareMinerals The Perfect Storm Eyeshadow Duo
bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow Duos: The Perfect Storm
bareMinerals The Perfect Storm Eyeshadow Duo ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains two shades: Cumulus and Tempest. 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.
Cumulus is a subtly, cool-toned white with a soft, frosted shimmer finish. It’s very opaque, and the texture is dense and buttery. It ends up a bit like Inglot #351 but whiter. Inglot #373 is closer but cooler.
Tempest is a gray-casted taupe with a near-matte finish. It’s that mix of gray and brown that creates taupe, but it leans more on the gray side. The matte texture is really workable here–it’s soft, smooth, and nicely pigmented. The softness makes it easy to blend when applied. The shade is reminiscent of Chanel Prelude without the shimmer. It’s very similar but slightly grayer compared to Burberry Taupe Brown.
