Calling all Bare Escentuals bareMinerals babes. Set your calendars for November 1, and title the reminder, “2 new BM eyeshadow palettes coming out today.”
The limited edition Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 Palettes in The Cocktail Hour and The Playlist ($40 apiece) promenade into Bare Escentuals Boutiques on November 1, each with eight new Bare Escentuals bareMinerals pressed eyeshadow shades.
The Cocktail Hour
Base Escentuals is still new to the world of pressed powder eyeshadows, and if you haven’t tried any of their wares, the new palettes (with their simply pretty packaging) could be a great place to start.
I’m kinda crushing on the plum and khaki in The Cocktail Hour, myself…

Mah hair’s a HOT MESS!
I do notice some minor fallout on my cheeks when I apply these shadows, but it’s nowhere near as much as I’ve seen from the Smashbox Style Files shades. For the most part, I think the range of easy-to-blend colors, the pretty packaging and the high level of pigment make up for it, so to speak.
PRICE: $40 each
AVAILABILITY: Coming November 1 to Bare Escentuals Boutiques, counters and also online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B (they do exhibit some minor fallout)
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. We’re approaching the halfway marker, young lady. We’re almost over the hump.
