bareMinerals The Flashback Eyeshadow Duo

bareMinerals The Flashback Ready Eyeshadow Duo ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) contains two shades: Deja Vu and Amnesia. The duo will debut in October, and it’s touted as a solid eyeshadow with SeaNutritive Mineral Complex (which includes sea minerals with antioxidants, cold-pressed borage oil, caffeine, and cucumber) that delivers “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.”

  • Deja Vu is a bright, metallic silver with a smooth, metallic sheen. It is similar to Inglot #448, just a touch cooler in tone.
  • Amnesia is a blackened brown-gray that’s not too dark or charcoal. It has a near matte finish. Inglot #348 is browner. It’s a bit darker than MAC Print.

Deja Vu is soft, smooth, and beautifully pigmented, while Amnesia is soft, it does have a touch of dryness common to mattes. It could be a smidgen more buttery, but it’s a good matte (just doesn’t quite achieve greatness). Both shades apply well with good blendability and staying power. When worn alone, I was able to wear these for 10 hours without an eyeshadow primer. The duo itself is an interesting color combination, particularly the way the two finishes provide such a contrast. Neither shade is overly unique, but they are good shades to add to a permanent range.
