Bare Minerals: REMIX Spring 2013

Bare Minerals have gone blue for Spring - I know it's cold, but I didn't realise it was cold enough to turn one of my favourite beauty brands a shiny shade of azul. All jokes aside, I love what they've done with their 'Remix' collection and have been awaiting it with bated breath since I saw it pop up on Twitter a couple of months ago. The new collection celebrates that feeling you have when you hit the dancefloor: "You know the moment when the music is blasting, the crow is going wild, and you can feel the beat, inside and out? All wrapped up in the second, the chords swirl around you, vibrant and alive, taking total control. Nothing else matters. You live it, breath it, everything is suddenly still…and it all seems to make sense." I'm not going to dress this all up in bows because I don't really get it, but what I do understand is that this is quite a new direction for Bare Minerals. Known for being consistently neutral, these striking colours and unusual combinations really bring something new to the table that we haven't seen before - I would've never thought I'd see a pink lip mixed with a green eye, let alone it all being brought together in bright metallic blue packaging! So what of the products themselves?

The eyeshadow colours are really quite stunning, each having a delicate contrasting shimmer underneath the main pigment which enables the colours to blend into one another when worn together. I've written about the eyeshadows before, and this formula is no different - smooth, effortless colour that's long-lasting and doesn't crease. Some of the more metallic shades do need some blending to stop the colour looking too strong around the eye, but these shades are beautiful. Within the collection is also a blusher and warming bronzing mineral veil, which provides a litte colour to cheeks to bridge between seasons; the delicate shimmer also catches the light and acts as a subtle highlighter, so this can be worn all year long. My favourite product of the range by far though is the Loud & Clear lip sheer - you have it from me that this will become one of the favourite launches of 2013 (and it's only January!) The three shades are all incredibly delicate on the lips, providing just a hint of colour that almost makes it look like you've bitten your bottom lip during a sultry pose. The formula is really smooth and moisturising, giving lips a subtle glimmer and acting like a tube of posh lip balm in a really fabulous pack. I'm a massive lipbalm whore, but this has replaced all 15 currently doing the rotation because it provides me comfort, hydration and colour while looking fabulous. If you're feeling blue, then this will definitely provide a little pick-me-up.

Available from February 7th on counter and online.

  4. I love Bare Minerals and the whole idea of mineral makeup, which is much healthier for your skin! The packaging is gorgeous too. I just purchased the Bare Minerals under-eye brightener and it is amazing... I haven't reviewed it yet but I already think I like it more than touche eclat!
