New Bare Minerals READY Shadows & BB Eye Primer

I first need to apologize for the lack of quality in my photos lately. Unfortunately, My Photoshop Light Room program corrupted on me a few nights back and I can't seem to get it running again. So, my backup plan has literally been iPhone editing apps - yes, I kit you not, I am relying on PicFX and a few other editing apps to bump up the brightness a bit in the photos. Hopefully I will have things worked out soon.

Anyways, Bare Minerals just released six new READY Duos and three new quads to their READY shadow collection. Now, you may find that some of these shades are already in your stash. That's because multiple shades and compacts were already released on QVC months before now. Some shades were also featured in specialty kits from last year (ex. "The Guilty Pleasures"). 
I've actually only picked up one shadow from the newly released collection, which is the READY Quad in "The Designer Label". I already had "The Guilty Pleasures" duo from the "Addicted to Peach" kit and the 5 in 1 BB Shadow Primer from the "Neutral Eyes" kit. 

I have to say, I think Bare Minerals has done some improving on the texture of the eye shadows. In some duos/quads I would experience really smooth and pigmented shades, then in others, more sheer finishes. Both of these shadows have excellent pigmentation.
The Designer Label 4.0 Quad - Eeek! I love everything about this quad. I love mossy green shadows paired with subtle neutrals. This entire quad is filled with pigmented goodness! Although most of the shades are shimmery, you still get a great matte transition shade.
The Guilty Pleasures 2.0 Duo - This was a duo I received in the "Addicted to Peach" kit. I wasn't sure if I would be too crazy about the shades but they're so true to color and blend really nicely together. I was worried the shimmery brown would just show up matte on my eyes but the shimmer actually stays. This duo has exceptionally smooth shadows as well.
5 in 1 BB Primer Shadow "Soft Linen" - I feel like these are amp'd up versions of the original Primetime Shadow Primer. They're definitely thicker in consistency and actually provide concealing properties. They make for great bases or can be worn alone.

This post is a little photo heavy but I hope the swatches give you what you were looking for!

    And I really want to thank you for being my go-to on all that is delicious in the world of Bare Minerals! The Guilty Pleasures 2.0 has been a curiosity to me, and now it's on my list.
