 Here we have the newest addition to my eye shadow collection. The Bare Minerals duo in 'Top Shelf'*, my new go to shadow from day to day. Top shelf consists of two eyeshadows; Mixologist & Cognac both extremely beautiful shades alone, but together they make a great pairing. 

This pressed eyeshadow duo from Bare Minerals is a must have for neutral lovers out there. A Duo I always swatched when visiting my friend at her counter, the shadows are so smooth in consistency & are a absolute dream to apply, you have no problems using a fluffy brush to blend these shades out.
Mixology, the lighter of the two shades is a peach toned shimmer that works extremely well on the inner corners as well as all over the lid. It really makes your eyes appear wide awake and brighter - which is a godsend when you stay up late watching OITNB each night! 
Cognac is the more pigmented of the two. I remember when discussing this duo with Robyn previously she informed me that I would need the tiniest amount on my brush to use on the outer V of my eyes and she wasn't wrong. This is one pigmented shade! Cognac is a bronze brown with a lot of shimmer running through, it looks great paired with Mixology but would work equally as well with a lighter matte shade all over the lid. 

In terms of wear, I don't need to use a primer with these shadows which is a huge bonus. There's nothing worse than applying vivid shades only to find out after 8.5 hours at work plus a 45 min walk home that your eyes look a mess.... this is not the case when I wear this duo on my lids. My eyes look exactly the same as when I leave the house at 7:30 in the morning! Such a bonus, its once reason why this duo has shot right up to the top of my most reached for products list in the past few weeks. I've only played around with bare minerals shadows once before in this post, but considering how impressed I am with this offering I may have to investigate further to find some gems from the brand! 

This particular palette was from Chemist Direct, which offers a lot of brands at a slightly discounted price which is always a bonus. You can buy Top Shelf for £14.99 rather than £19.50.

Have you tried anything from Bare Minerals before?

Much love,

  11. These sound like really good quality and the shades looks gorgeous! I never wear a primer with my eyeshadow (regrettably at times!), so it's good to know these work well without one! Thanks for sharing! xx
