Spring Preview: BareMinerals Remix Collection

I always look forward to the seasonal collections from BareEscentuals, but this one stole my heart. BE has managed to put together the perfect lineup for your spring holiday, whether you’re off to St. Tropez or trying to look like you just got back. In stores now, the Remix Trend Collection includes some of my favorite basics—Ready Eyeshadow Quads  and the Flawless Definition Mascara—and combines them with beach-ready beauty such as BE’s first-ever Bronzing Mineral Veil with SPF 25 and the golden-hued Secret Radiance which give sun-kissed skin a luminous glow. On top of this beachy goodness comes an absolute crowd-pleaser: Ready Blush in a new shade, The Natural High, which rivals NARS Orgasm but with twice the staying power! Even while there’s snow on the ground, we can all get behind the Loud & Clear Lip Sheers, a shiny, translucent tinted balm available in three sunny shades: Amped Pink, Tangerine Trance and Berry Remix–Dani

What products are on your spring break beauty list?

Bare Escentuals SPF 30 Natural Sunscreen

bareminerals_sunscreen

I never jumped on the Bare Minerals bandwagon, though not for lack of watching the infomercials repeatedly in an entranced state. I couldn’t find a shade that matched my skin tone, and I prefer a sheer, dewy finish to the rich, powdery coverage synonymous with mineral makeup. Ironically, I’m crazy about the Bare Escentuals SPF 30 Natural Sunscreen ($28). For one thing, the powder has a built-in twist-up brush—an engineering feat I’ve always yearned to experience. For another, who wants to schmear a fresh coat of sunscreen over her makeup every recommended 4 hours? I’d much rather pop this sleek bullet into my handbag for touch-ups throughout the day. The micronized titanium dioxide mineral powder not only physically shields against UVA/UVB rays (a great alternative to anyone who is sensitive to chemical sunscreens) but sets makeup, blots oil, and has just enough tint to even out skin tone. On hot summer days it’s all I’ll be wearing on top of a light-weight moisturizer, which is about as low-maintenance as I get. Have you tried a powder sunscreen? Do share.
