BareMinerals Complexion Rescue & Modern Pop Collection {NEW!}

It’s no secret that bareMinerals is one of my absolute favorite makeup and beauty brands. I’ve been wearing it since I first started wearing real makeup in college. It all started with their original Get Started Kit, which has since been updated to feature some of their newer popular products.

I’m always excited when new bareMinerals products are launched because each one seems to get better and better. This year’s biggest introduction is their Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream. Think BB, CC and tinted moisturizer… all in one and mineral-based. After just one day of using Complexion Rescue, it’s become part of my everyday routine, especially on weekdays when I need to look presentable but also get ready pretty quickly.

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue #ComplexionRescue

BareMinerals Complexion Rescue gives you several skincare benefits, along with lots of hydration, and a naturally radiant look. It’s a gel cream that has SPF 30 and comes in 10 different shades, ranging from Opal (for the fairest porcelain skin with cool tones) to Sienna (for deep skin with neutral tones). I have very blonde hair and blue eyes but surprisingly have more of medium toned skin, especially during spring and summer, so I’ve been loving the Natural shade.

I’ve found that Complexion Rescue is great for work days when I need a bit of color for my face but don’t have time to put on a full face of makeup. I tend to have a bit of redness on my face, so I just layer on a bit more in those areas and I’m good to go. It’s super easy to apply – you can either use your fingertips or the Smoothing Face Brush for a more professional look.

You can pick up Complexion Rescue at lots of retailers –, Sephora, Nordstrom and more – for $29 (it’s so popular that at Sephora, it’s out of stock in some colors!).

bareMinerals Modern Pop #ModernPop

BareMinerals has also launched their limited-edition Modern Pop collection, which includes an eyeshadow palette, mascara, eyeliner, lipsticks and lip gloss topcoat:

  • Modern Pop READY Eyeshadow 4.0 The Modern Icon: Like all bareMinerals eyeshadows, this one gives you long-lasting color. This palette comes with Exhale (smoky taupe), Carefree (peach sherbet), Sophisticate (natural amethyst) and Chic (pink cashmere) that blend together to create looks for both day and nighttime. {$30}
  • Modern Pop Marvelous Moxie LipstickI’ve been loving the Marvelous Moxie line of lip products for a while now, and these lipstick shades are no exception. My favorite – which I’ve been wearing to work nearly every day since it arrived – is Express Yourself, a bright peach. I love the others, Fall in Love (tawny peach) and Dream Big (nude peach), but they didn’t work as well with my skin tone. I’m picky when it comes to lipsticks, but Marvelous Moxie lipsticks are nice and creamy and also give you nice color. Bonus: each of these lipsticks comes with a fun carry case. {$20 each}
  • Modern Pop Cream Glaze Top CoatIf you love the color of lipstick but want it to be a bit more shiny or soften the color, this is your product. It’s a sheer lip top coat that transforms the lip color you’re wearing into a shiny, creamy pastel. I’ve been wearing it over the Express Yourself lipstick color daily. Of course, it also works great on its own if you just need a little shine. {$18}
  • Modern Pop Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara: This mascara has a very unique wand – if you look at it, you’ll see that it has a spiral, which is meant to curve around your lashes and coat all angles with its intense black color. Lash Domination is a 10-in-1 mascara that’s volumizing, lengthening, thickening, separating, long-wearing and more. Plus it has lots of great nourishing minerals to give you lush lashes. {$18}
  • Modern Pop Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliner: This is another product I’ve been a fan of for a while, but I had previously stuck with dark colors instead of this “Classic Cream” shade. I also apply this color to the inside corner of my eyes to brighten up my eyes and make me look more awake. All Lasting Line eyeliners have built-in sharpeners and the tip is angled in a way that makes it super easy to apply and blend. {$16}

  1. I used to really love Bare Minerals, but now I’m more into Alima Pure because it doesn’t clog my pores – lovely post!

  2. I love Bare Minerals! I have been wanting to try the Complexion Rescue for a while. I’ve never used any of their lipsticks but now I want to give them a try. Those colors are so pretty!
