I love BareMinerals shadows. I own several of these duos, and the colors are all beautiful and pigmented, with little fallout. They apply and blend beautifully. I have really oily eyelids, and I find these last much longer than most shadows, even without primer. Obviously, these are much more convenient to carry in your purse than the loose minerals (which I love). The packing is slightly soft/rubbery feeling (kind of like nars), matte black plastic. They come with a mirror and small spong-tip applicator.
