Over the past few months, mineral makeup hero Bare Escentuals has been adding pressed-powder formulations to its traditional lineup of loose-powder makeup. And the results have been astounding. The recently launched Bare Minerals Ready 2.0 Eye Shadow Palette ($27.95) contains two shades that glide on as smooth as silk. Borage oil helps to hydrate the skin, while cucumber assists in quelling puffiness. But it's the colour pay-off that truly impresses. The pigments are richly hued and long-wearing, and are even resistant to creasing and clumping.
While there are over 20 palettes from which to choose, The Hidden Agenda (pictured) is a stand out. This combination features Stealth, an apricot chiffon, and Undercover, a glistening granite with soft plum undertones. Not your colour duo of choice? We're also fans of The 15 Minutes, which features Page Six (a sandy-pink sheen) and Most Requested (a burgundy sparkle), two shades that will make any eye tone pop.
