bareMinerals The Wish List READY Eyeshadow Palette
bareMinerals The Wish List READY Eyeshadow Palette

bareMinerals The Wish List READY Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.48 oz.) includes 12 neutral-hued eyeshadows in a variety of finishes. It is housed in a fairly slim, plastic compact with a large mirror inside. If you like lighter, warmer neutrals and don’t already have them well-represented in your stash, it’s certainly a palette to consider. On the other hand, as there are numerous palettes that have been launched, there are likely many who already have these colors in their collections (this palette also included several repeats from past bareMinerals shades). Regardless of similarity to past and present neutral palettes, I would have liked to have seen more mid-tone shades and less very light all within the same palette–I feel like it would have made the palette more versatile.

Formula Overview

Ready Eyeshadow is supposed to have 12-hour wear, “vivid, pure, provocative color” that “looks like a powder, feels like a cream” and blends seamlessly. In general, I quite enjoy this formula, and it’s one of my favorites, as it is typically soft without being too powdery or dusty and more shimmery shades have a real creaminess to them. They wear between eight and twelve hours on me (without primer), blend well, and sit nicely on the skin. The majority of the shades I’ve tested in the past have been mostly opaque to opaque, but there have been a few misses over the years (not too many, though).

Come True is a muted, light-medium taupe-brown with warmer undertones and a matte finish.

Granted is a muted, medium orangy-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. While the pigmentation was fairly good and true-to-pan, the texture was noticeably dusty and prone to sheering out, so it was harder to apply it as an even layer of product. The wear was shorter than usual at seven and a half hours. Ciate Skinny Dip (LE, )(100% similar). Makeup Geek Buffed (LE, $6.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Yes Please is a medium-dark, taupe brown with warm, golden undertones and a pearly sheen. It appeared to have a grayer overtone than it seemed in the palette, and I couldn’t really tell you why; my best guess is the shimmer comes through more noticeably as it is pressed and worked into the skin than it is in the pan. The color had good pigmentation and wore for nine hours before fading. Kat Von D Samael (P, ) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). MAC Soft Steel (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Stiletto is a deep plum with lighter purple shimmer over a mostly matte finish. It is the type of finish where the shimmer is barely noticeable in action, as it seems to disappear between the pan, your brush, and the eye. The product was extremely rich in pigment, while the consistency was soft, finely-milled, and fairly blendable on the lid. It wore well for nine hours before I saw some signs of fading.

Chance is a light beige with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish.

Daydream is a light-medium, yellowed beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was somewhat powdery, which resulted in sheerer coverage and a powder that did not want to stick as evenly to bare skin as other shades in the palette.

Gold Leaf is a muted, medium coppery orange with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, slightly drier texture that kicked up excess powder in the pan.

Good Spirits is a subdued, medium-dark, red-toned brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had so-so color payoff, which was buildable on the lid, that applied fairly evenly to bare skin.

Boardroom is a deep brown with warmer, redder undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff paired with a dusty, thin texture, which made it harder to blend, apply, and even out.
