Another day, another Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 Palette to chat! The Bare Minerals The Bare Neutrals Ready Eyeshadow Palette ($40) is a new eight shade eyeshadow palette that launched earlier last month at Nordstrom.com (and later at Ulta.com). I saw it and I said to myself, “You don’t need it!” But I’m weak and I ended up purchasing it.
Oh woe is me!
I just have such great success with the Ready 8.0 Palettes I felt I was missing out if I didn’t add this one to my collection as well. I have to admit, although great quality, you probably don’t need the Bare Neutrals simply because many of the shades are pretty easy to dupe across the board especially if you have ALL of the other Ready Palettes already. Personally, I’m one of those anal people that that like having a palette that has coordinating shades and the Bare Neutrals Palette fits the bill.
Let’s take a peek!
People, I so wish I blogged for a living! If I did I’d take the time out to look through all my Ready Eyeshadow Palettes and give you the scoop on the shades that look the same. But unfortunately, real life and my real job take precedence and I can’t always list dupes. Forgive me?
But here is some of what you can expect from this palette!
- Serendipitous (delicate peach) (Available in Ready 4.0)
- Satin Cloud (creamy peach) (Available in Bare Minerals The Suede Neutrals Ready Eyeshadow Palette)
- Air (satin taupe)
- A-Ha (brown sugar) (Available in Ready 2.0)
- Cognac (gilded bronze) (Available in Ready 2.0)
- Namaste (sandy brown) (Available in Ready 2.0 and the Regal Wardrobe Palette)
- Fate (light mocha glaze) (Available in Ready 4.0)
- Wanderlust (brown suede) (Available in Ready 2.0)
As you can see many of the shades are or have been available in some palette or another at some point. Also, many of the shades looks quite similar to shades already featured in past Ready 8.0 Eyeshadow Palettes but aren’t exact dupes but are either lighter or darker variations of those shades. I don’t have all the Ready 2.0 or 4.0 Palettes, ironically I don’t like them as much as I do the 8.0 ones, so, some of the shades I don’t have. I’m also weird in the fact even if it I do have the shade I still like a well coordinated palette housing all of them together. This is a warmer selection of neutral browns, bones, tans, and taupes which is basically right up my alley so I’m inclined to rave it. That’s particularly the case since the Ready formula is so fantastic. The palette is made up of a majority of mattes with a few velvety satins. All of the shadows have a soft texture with an easy to blend formula. I will admit I struggled slightly getting definition and contrast from these shades as the colors run together and become muddy. But for basically one or two shade looks it’s rather great.
Remember our do you need or do you want this product game? I instantly realized upon purchasing the Bare Minerals The Bare Neutrals Ready Eyeshadow Palette is was more about wanting than needing. I don’t need any of these shades but collector I am I wanted it none the less. My advise to you though would be to skip it if you already have a variety of the past Ready 8.0 Eyeshadow Palettes. If you don’t? Grab it! If you do, you might want to think twice as there’s not a lot of newness to be had here!
