Wearing Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 in Alter Ego
I was having one of those “Oh, no, you did not just put me on hold again, Tabs!?” afternoons today. You know, the kind where your cat employer calls you at the office and then puts you on hold, and you repeat to yourself, “Breath in, breath out. Breathe in, breathe out,” and your shoulders are so tense and flexed that they practically touch your ears?
But after a few minutes with the new Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 duos and 4.0 quads, I started to feel a whole lot better. Calm and centered; cool and collected.
It’s true what they say. Luscious colors and soft textures really do soothe the savage beast.
This May, seven new Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 duos ($20 each) and two Ready Eyeshadow 4.0 quads ($30 each) join the bareMinerals clan, touching down on Bare Escentuals counters, boutiques and at Sephora stores.
Here are pics of five of the duos and one of the quads. If you take a look, I’d be curious to hear what you think.
For the record, I noticed a wee bit of fallout when I tried on The Alter Ego duo, but it wasn’t much. Just a few crumbs. And with as pigmented as the colors are, I can live with it.

Hurry, Friday, hurry!
Um, you know what I’m ready for? The weekend. All I want to do is sleep, work out, spend time with the boys, and eat fish and chips.
I’ve been craving it since St. Patrick’s Day.
So greasy… So yummy… So wrong that it’s right…
Not exactly health food, I know, but I can’t help myself. Or I don’t want to.
Anyone else excited about the Game of Thrones season premiere on Sunday?
I wonder if Tabs would get along with that little dragon… Something tells me no.
