Review: Modern Pop

It’s no secret that I’ve been using and loving bareMinerals products for years now. I recently had a discount to use there and decided to try out some items from their recent Modern Pop collection before my discount expired. Here’s what I got!

_MG_4746I got the eyeshadow quad, the lipstick in the shade “Dream Big” and the Cream Glaze Lip Topcoat. How adorable is that little packaging for the lipstick? It reminds me of those retro lipstick holder/carriers. I used to have one when I was little that my grandma gave me which I used to just to play with in my purse around my house.

The quad shades are described as “a smoky taupe, peach sherbet/natural amethyst/pink cashmere”. They are not super pigmented, but easy to work with and quite buildable. They blend very easily and go on smoothly.

The lipstick is described as nude peach, but I didn’t really find it to be that nude, but by no means too bright either. I was actually a bit disappointed with this item! I’ve never had an issue with bareMinerals lip products, but while this lipstick went on smoothly and did have a thick feeling to it – after a while it really did dry out my lips, which as we all know is not cute.

The last item – the Lip Topcoat, is a described as sheer pearl color. Like all glosses it can be worn alone or over a lip color. It has a deliciously sweet scent, which is my favorite lip gloss scent/taste. I liked the look of this product, but I want to note that it did have a tingling effect on my lips. The product doesn’t claim to plump lips or anything like that so I’m not sure why it was tingly, but it lasted for a good 30 minutes! It wasn’t too uncomfortable, but was definitely noticeable.

Sorry the first shot of me is a bit blurry – it’s hard to set the timer on the camera and then get it to focus! Overall, I like the collection and see myself reaching for the eye quad and lip topcoat. The lipstick color is very pretty, but I think I’ll definitely have to combine it with a lip gloss because it is so drying which was definitely unfortunate.

Have any of you tried this collection out?
