bareMinerals Remix Spring 2013 Collection

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!
