bareminerals ready eyeshadow 2.0 in the guilty pleasures

My favorite first, bareMinerals READY® Eyeshadow 2.0 The Guilty Pleasures is part of the bareMinerals Addicted to Peach collection ($49) premiering today. The individual shade names are Shh... (apricot nectar) and Yes Please (cinnamon brown shimmer). This duo is the main reason I purchased the collection, the feel and texture of these eyeshadow colors is amazing. If you have used their other READY duos this will not disappoint.

I like to use Shh... as an all over wash of color on the lid, and then put Yes Please in the crease and outer corner. I blend a little of both together to add definition under the eye. This creates a simple work appropriate look, with a little spring summer edge from the subtle peach tone. The only thing (which is good or bad depending on what you want from it) is that the shimmer in Yes Please seems to disappear, and becomes basically a matte eyeshadow especially if you use a fluffy brush. The only way I have found to make it stay is by packing it on with a flat brush over primer, but then you do end up with a little fall out through out the day.

My favorite brush to use with all bareMinerals READY eyeshadows is their Soft Focus Eyeshadow brush. This helps to blend the colors evenly, especially if you tend to have a heavy hand.
