This purchase was a long time coming. The bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow range has been on my radar for years now but I just kept passing them up in favour of other things… I really wanted either the duo called The Top Shelf or the quad called The Truth, but Sephora Singapore had neither. This duo — The Epiphany — caught my eye though because it was one that I hadn’t researched before (yes, I research my eyeshadow purchases. Everyone does that, right?). After quickly verifying that Temptalia rated it an A+, into my bag it went!
The READY eyeshadows come in duo or quad form and are labeled 2.0 and 4.0 respectively and accordingly. I picked up my 2.0 in The Epiphany for S$ 36.10 or approx. 1,224.00 Php. Still more expensive than the 20.00 USD listed on the bareMinerals website, but it’s not a bad price for the quality, considering MAC singles will set you back close to a thousand pesos these days.
The packaging is that rubbery black that you’ll be familiar with if you like NARS products, but the overall feel of the product is different because of the more rounded corners. It has that good quality packaging feel to it, but the rubbery black is a powder magnet so it starts to look dirty very quickly. It’s always annoying but we gotta take the bad with good sometimes, eh?
And damn is this eyeshadow formula good.
