Huzzah! Good news, friend! As it turns out, you will not have to promise your first born child, sell your soul or slice your arm open and drip blood into a boiling cauldron in order to experience The Magic Act ($39), the new holiday neutral eye and cheek palette by bareMinerals.
Seriously, thank goodness, because the last thing I want to do on a Monday afternoon is barter with a warlock. Generally, I’m much better equipped for things related to the dark arts later in the week…like around Wednesday or Thursday, after I’ve warmed up. 🙂
The Magic Act comes with six powder eyeshadows (three mattes and three shimmers), three blushes (two satins and a shimmer) and a highlighter, all in neutral shades, and with pigment levels that range from sheer to medium.
It’s weird, but whenever I wear this palette, I usually wear it with a bright lip and sometimes a bold liner, and when I do, someone will invariably ask about my lids or cheeks…even though those are the parts of my look that aren’t bold or flashy.
The palette’s neutral browns, beiges, taupes, pinks and peaches are mysteriously attention-getting…
In pop star vernacular, The Magic Act is not Beyonce. It’s more like Kelly or Michelle, in that, yeah, you know they’re there, but it’s really all about Miss Thang in the front.
The Magic Act excels as a backdrop/backup singer for bright lips and bold liners, or as an everyday neutral palette with colors that look natural.
You can find it now, for a limited time, at bareMinerals counters, Sephora and online for $39.
