Review & Swatches! Bare Minerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0 in The Phenomenon

Hello all!! I'm so excited to share with you my newest obsession.  Bare Minerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0 (in The Phenomenon).

Here's what Bare Minerals has to say : "bareMinerals READY® Eyeshadow delivers pure, intense, provocative colour that's long-wearing and amazingly blendable with proven skin-nourishing benefits." (source)

I dont know about all that skin nourishing stuff, but I did enjoy the shadows.  First though..Swatches!

None of those swatches were done over primer..it was done over bare skin. Yes..a purple that's not super sheer and shows up without a primer on bare skin. I KNOW. I die. I bought this in preparation for Easter.  I have a couple of  "go-to's" from Urban Decay, but I really wanted a nice purple. I was thinking I'd head over the the UD section (in ULTA), but I decided to take a gander over at the new Bare Minerals shadows first.  As soon as I saw this..I knew it had to be mine.  

Without primer, these perform really well!  Lasted through a whole work day (8 fun filled hours of working retail), with only minor fading of the purple shade.  With primer I was able to get closer to 9.5 hours (awesome..I know).  Over primer the purple is a bit more vibrant, and the golden shade a bit more golden (but that's to be expected). There was a bit of fallout when I was tapping my shadow brush into the shadows (they're a little bit powdery). There was also a bit of creasing after about 8 hours, but for myself, it wasnt anything major.

Overall:  I love this palette! They're a bit on the powdery side, but there was very minimal fallout when applied to the eyes.  They're smooth to apply, and I love this color combination! I cant wait to try others!
