bareMinerals REMIX Collection

Check out how gorgeous the packaging for the new bareMinerals Spring collection is! They normally have really basic black packaging, so it's nice to see them doing something a bit more fun and eye catching.
The collection itself is called REMIX. The inspiration for this collection is based around "the moment when the music is blasting, the crowd is going wild and you can feel the beat inside and out. You live it, breathe it, everything is suddenly still... and it all seems to make sense"

I have to put it in quotations as I didn't know how else to re-word something so cheesy! I think that's slightly OTT for a makeup collection but... let's move on to the products!
Some of the colours in the collection are decidedly questionable. Personally I'm not a fan of the eye colours, or the turquoise mascara (anyone else used to wear that to school discos, age 9?! Cos I did) It's a shame because their formulations are lovely...
The lip colours however, are really nice. They are a sheer, balmy consistency and taste lovely - perfect for Spring.
The clear star of the collection though, and the only product I would really recommend making a beeline to take a look at next time you're near a bareMinerals counter is the Bronzing Mineral Veil. I'm a huge fan of the original mineral veil, and while this one looks like it will leave you looking like a mixture between an oompa-loompa and a disco ball in the pot, it blends in to the skin beautifully to leave you with a warm, glowing complextion.
This limited edition collection is available from bareMinerals counters now, prices start at £13.

  5. I actually think I prefer the other packaging, this looks a bit Drugstore-y to me, the gold/bronze eye shadow is lovely though!<3.

  7. Love the colours not sure on the packaging though! Doesn't look as high end/classy as before- and a little cheap if i'm honest- just my opinion though.

  8. Hi, i was wondering if you could help me. I had a blackhead on my nose and i stupidly tried to remove it. As a result of that it has now scarred, it almost looks like a beauty mark, its a pure black spot and i cant seem to cover it up. i was wondering if you would help me with this.

  11. I am stunned by the packaging. And the collection inspiration really. Neither of those things are very 'bareMinerals' in my mind, but as you say it's nice to see something a bit different and eye catching! I really love the look of the bronzing veil.

  12. The colours are really great! I think the pigmentation is also very good. Love the packaging!

  16. Thanks for the review! I can't wait to try the bronzing mineral veil, as i'm so pale its so easy for bronzers to turn me orange!

  17. I've tried a few of bareminerals products and love them. I've currently got my eye on a couple of eyeshadow duos! This compact has some lovely shades in it though!

  30. I've got the original mineral veil and find it too cakey and I've got the original powder bronzer and find it too dark for my skintone so wont be trying the bronzing mineral veil for fear I may have the same problems! However I do like the swatch shades of the eyeshadows even though they don't look too exciting in the pan Xx

  50. Well that is decidedly cheesy and I have to say unlike most people I am not a fan of the new packaging. I think it looks a bit 80s and cheep. I think I could probably work with the eye palate but it would be very pinky valentine's day-y. I do really like the bronzing mineral veil though. I have used it for quite a while now as a bronzer and it never makes my pale pale skin look orange or dirty like many other bronzers.

  61. I've never really paid this brand much attention, and to be honest I probably still won't. I don't really think it looks that extraordinary and I really don't like the eye shadow colours.. :-/

  68. I don't like Bare Minerals because the powder is too messy but the packaging on this definitely caught my eye!

    The eyeshadows look a lot nicer than i expected when I saw them in the box, I may be tempted to give these a go!
