When you have moxie, you need the lipstick to match – and Bare Minerals has the perfect answer! Modern Pop is their Spring 2015 limited edition collection that features creamy peach lips. They sent us the three beautiful neutral Modern Pop Marvelous Moxie Lipsticks, along with a transforming lip gloss that instantly gives each shade a new personality. If you love nude lips, this is a must-have collection.
First let’s talk packaging. Modern Pop Marvelous Moxie Lipsticks ($20 each) come in a super cute white polka dot pink lipstick case. This case snaps shut and stays closed, but easily opens to a handy mirror. The lipsticks themselves are in gleaming silver bullets with an ingenious locking system. Definitely no worries of lipstick-streaked purse pockets!
The three peachy lipsticks in the Modern Pop collection includes Express Yourself, Fall in Love, and Dream Big, along with the Modern Pop Cream Glaze Lip Topcoat. The lipsticks are creamy and very pigmented. They have an opaque satin finish. I find them to be nicely moisturizing, which also means the wear is not as long as more matte lipsticks. The ingredients include Abyssinian Oil and Omega Fatty Acids to soften lips, as well as antioxidants vitamin A, C and E complex.
Dream Big is a nude peach, the lightest shade of the three. It’s the quintessential nude lippie. If I didn’t have such thin lips I would love this, but I need a little more lip real estate to do the color justice.
Express Yourself is a bright peach. This is darker and brighter than Dream Big and is a great shade for spring. I love that it isn’t a brown-based peach, which always makes me look washed out.
Fall in Love is a tawny peach that is the deepest shade in the trio. This is a very interesting shade that leans orange. I love this one and I don’t have anything else like it in my collection.
Modern Pop also has a lip gloss to go with the lipsticks called Cream Glaze Lip Topcoat. This is a cream gloss with pearl.
As you can see, the Modern Pop Cream Glaze Lip Topcoat totally transforms Fall in Love from a deeper tawny peach to a shiny lighter pastel. It works on all the Modern Pop lipsticks, as well as any other lipstick you have. It is great for softening colors that are too deep for your skin tone, as well as giving matte lipsticks a whole new look. What a great way to increase the versatility of your lipstick collection!
I adore the packaging for the Modern Pop collection and the peach shades are perfect for spring. f you only get one thing, be sure to buy the Cream Glaze Lip Topcoat, which saves any lipsticks that aren’t quite right for you and gives old favorites a new look. – Lisa
