I don't really consider BareMinerals a "me" type of cosmetic brand, nonetheless I feel victim to the cute polka dot design of the limited edition Modern Pop collection.
The collection takes inspiration from the Sixties with a fluttery lash and nude lip. First up I bought READY Eyeshadow 4.0 The Modern Icon (£29).
The palette contains a satin cream with hint of pink, satin peach, semi-matte mauve and a matte deep taupe. All shades have good colour payoff,
with a soft smooth texture that blends well (though the deepest shade is not creamy like the others).
combination of the peach with smokiness works really well, a lovely composition to bring us into the Spring season without going
too light and pastel.
If I had one gripe about this (which you know I do) its that the shades look a tad dry on, now I do have dry lids to begin with and they were not to the
extent of looking crepey but nonetheless I do notice it.
Of the three Marvelous Moxie lipsticks I bought the lightest shade,
Dream Big (£18). Its a nude peach that gives a subtle touch of warmth
and surprisingly does not wash me out.
Whilst I like this shade I am not
liking how it applies. Its quite clingy and shows up dryness and lip lines. As much as I like the shade I want a lipstick I can just throw on rather than
having to faff about prepping the lips first.
Certainly not total fails by any means but there is something to be said about sticking to your tried and tested brands.
I bought these from Debenhams
