bareMinerals Remix Spring 2013 Collection

2013-01-02 04.50.06 (480x360)

The latest from bareMinerals—the Remix Collection is available this month in stores. The collection has new sleek packaging in a pretty aqua metallic sheen.

The Remix Collection includes:

Both eye shadow quads have four eye shadows, a foam applicator and a full sized mirror. The warm quad, The Next Big Thing contains:

  • Rising Star – sunlit gold
  • Smash Hit – glowing copper
  • Hoopla – vibrant peach
  • Ensemble – smoky plum

I bet you thought this quad would certainly be my preference didn’t you? I did too, but surprisingly after playing with each quad, I found myself liking The Wild Thing better. Rising Star and Smash Hit are beautiful shimmery warm shades. I was a bit disappointed with Hoopla, it’s not quite as smooth as the others.

The Wild Thing truly has some stunning colors, however I think Icon, the chartreuse shade may not work for all. Chartreuse has a lot of yellow in it that can be hard for many to wear.  If you’re wondering how to wear this quad, Temptalia has a tutorial on it here. Sensational is such a pretty icy aqua shade, Elitist is a beautiful satin shimmer bronze taupe, Icon is of course a Chartreuse with a bit of shimmer and Controversy is the most stunning shade of marine blue. For this look I used Sensational on the lid, brow bone and inner corner. Elitist on the lid, Icon in the crease and lined with Controversy. Let me know in the comments what you think. I really can’t decide if I like Icon on me or not.

Both READY 4.0 Eyeshadow quads are of the exceptional quality we have come to expect from bareMinerals and the READY line. The texture is buttery soft, the shades highly pigmented and easily blendable. READY eyeshadows quickly became my favorite eyeshadow line due to the creamy texture and the wonderful pigment.

The Natural High READY blush is one of the most exciting pieces of the Remix Collection. This extremely pigmented blush is what I wanted NARS Orgasam to be. The pinky peach shade with a golden sheen is absolutely gorgeous. This is a universally flattering shade that works for all skin tones. READY blushes are smooth, long lasting and have the most delicious texture. That’s why I named them one of the top 10 products for women over 40! I can see myself hitting pan on this blush and THAT is unheard of!

These are my must-haves from the Remix collection, I will review the rest of the collection in another post.

Bottom Line: another hit from the bareMinerals READY line. The quality, pigmentation, sleek packaging and beautiful shades make this collection one to seek out!

  1. The shadow palettes are pretty wild, aren’t they? They are so not for me. I adore the blush and have been wearing that along with the Lip Sheers.

  2. What a pretty collection! That chartreuse color is not for me but the blush is beautiful! I have never tried anything from this brand. I might have to change that pretty quick!

  3. I need play time with this brand more. I love the way they do golds, coppers, bronzes. I’m wearing a duo today as a matter of fact.

  4. I’m really debating on the blush. Especially in that you compared it to Nars Orgasm, which I found totally disappointing because it didn’t show up on me at all. Would this give more pigment? Or….in what way does it compare with the Nars? thanks, Cindy!

    • polarbelle the blush compares to NARS in the color–a beautiful pinky peach with a golden sheen. It is also NOT a glitter ball like Orgasm is. you NEED it!

  5. The next big thing is my favorite out of the two quads. I love how travel friendly they are and the packaging is cute.

    I think the blush is pretty, but it’s pretty much a dupe of NARS Orgasm, as you said. Sorry to say, I do not care for the eyeshadow quartets at all! I guess I believe as a woman over 40 (OK, who am I kidding, I’m 52!), there are certain colors and trends that are best left to the youngsters among us. And this is one of those trends, “Icon” aka: chartreuse and the orangey “Hoopla” are not flattering colors on the eye. I believe that eyeshadow should bring out the natural beauty of one’s eyes so that people say, “What beautiful eyes you have!” not “What is that orange color you’re wearing?” Sorry, but I always have to be honest, Cindy. Your eyes are too pretty for those colors!

    • I agree on the eye shadow quads Mama but have to disagree on the blush. This is I WANTED Orgasm to be. Orgasm was waaay to glittery for me and this one isn’t at all and the texture is lovely plus it’s only $22!

        Really? And you don’t mean “Super Orgasm” which actually had CHUNKS of glitter in it? I found that Orgasm sometimes turned orangey on my skin (oil? Maybe…). I’ll have to have a look at this blush.

  7. The Wild Thing and Natural High should be at my house in the next few days, so glad to hear they are standouts in the collection!

  8. I really like your take on bareMinerals – the Remix Collection, I’m a fab=n of the Next Big Thing.

    EVERYONE must have read your review because that blush is sold out online at Macy’s, Ulta, Nordstrom and Sephora!!! Nice eye looks too.
