Review: bareMinerals Remix January 2013 Collection

BareMinerals launches the new Remix Collection this month and to me it has a very 80’s vibe. That could be due to the blues in The Wild Thing eye shadow quad or the new Aqua Blast mascara! Oh goodness I remember blue mascara but not in a good way so I was quite skeptical at this turquoise looking tube. The entire collection 11-pc. collection is presented in limited edition aqua metallic packaging. 

Flawless Definition Mascara, has the original black shade option plus a playful shade in Aqua Blast. Flawless Definition mascara has a great little rubber brush and does a great job at separating and defining lashes. I would definitely like to see more volume though. That said, this makes a good base layer mascara to then top off with a high volume mascara such as Benefit They’re Real or IT Hello Lashes. As far as the lively Aqua Blast shade, some may be disappointed that the brightness does not transfer well to the lashes. For me, that’s just fine, at my age I really don’t want to parade around wearing bright turquoise lashes so the subtleness works well for me and doesn’t bring back nightmares from the 80’s.

Some of the other pieces from the collection are Secret Radiance, a beautiful golden all-over face color. A younger gal could wear this as an all-over face color, but I prefer to use these as highlighters or luminizers. Secret Radiance is a lovely warm golden peachy shade with a luscious sheen to it that brings a radiance to the skin. Just a little dab will do ‘ya so apply sparingly to the high planes of the face, shoulders or  decolletage.

Bronzing Mineral Veil is an easy way to add a healthy sunny look to dull winter skin. It has more pigment and color than the Tinted Mineral Veil and as a bonus has an SPF of 25! For those of you in the colder parts of the country like me, I love to add a bit of color to my pale winter skin and this is perfect!

I have more reviews, pictures and swatches of the bareMinerals Remix Collection, specifically the eye shadow palettes and the blush on Prime Beauty.
