The Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadows have become something of an obsession for me. I can't help but always look and swatch when I head into a retailer.

My first 2.0 purchase was The Scenic Route. Still one of my favorite duos to reach for. One of the most recent Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 that I've purchased is The Vision.

From the Sephora website:

What it is:
An eye shadow duo of pure, intense color with antiaging benefits. 

What it does:
BareMinerals READY™ Eyeshadow provides exceptionally vivid, long-wearing complementary colors in an ultra-smooth, silky texture for effortless application and seamless blendability. Powered by bareMinerals’ proprietary SeaNutritive Mineral™ Complex along with powerful antioxidants, cold-pressed borage oil, caffeine and cucumber, these ingredients are known to deliver antiaging benefits including depuffing and antioxidant protection for a softer, smoother, revitalized eye area. It looks like a powder, but feels like a cream and delivers a beautifully vivid color.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
- Petrochemicals
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan
Size: 0.1 oz


The Vision contains two shades in Illusion and Mirage. Illusion is a baby blue, chalky yet buttery shade. Mirage is a brown-blue duochrome, which reminded me quite a bit of MAC Blue Brown Pigment, though I don't have that here to do a side by side swatch.

These shades are beautiful and quite easy to apply. I had originally meant to try Mirage on the lid and crease/highlight with Illusion, but I got distracted and went for my usual light shade on the lid and dark shade in the crease. Mirage seems to disappear when blended, but it made for a nicely demure look, none-the-less.

I used Make Up For Ever Eye liner in 24L (which is a taupe shade) and smudged Mirage over top.


Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 retail for $20 and are available at Sephora and Ulta.
