This month’s Beauty Heroes box arrived whilst I was on holiday but luckily for me I saw a sneaky peek on Instagram at the beginning of the month so I knew what was going be inside when I got home to it! I’m only just getting round to posting so you’ll all probably have seen it already but I love sharing each month’s box!
Modern Minerals have created their Emotive Make-up Collection including two lip glosses, a highlighter and an eyeshadow. The total value of this box is $96, well above the $39 retail price. When I found out it was make-up in this box I have to say I wasn’t that excited, however now that I’ve had a play with the products I’m seriously impressed!
“Proving that beauty radiates from the inside out, this Modern Minerals color collection is infused with Lotus Wei gem and flower essences, silky coconut and a touch of rose to uplift and awaken positivity while minimizing the effects of negative emotions.”
The products in this box took a year for Modern Minerals to create and they simply couldn’t decide on the perfect lip gloss shade, so they released both! Padparadscha is a Lotus Wei infused lip gloss that is a rare “rosy sapphire” colour whilst Citrine is a “golden nude shade”.
Padparadscha isn’t as bright on my lips as it looks in the tube but it’s a gorgeous shade and suits me really well. I haven’t tried Citrine yet but it looks like a lovely clear-nude gloss.
Their Modern Moonstone Cream Highlighter is being exclusively launched to Beauty Heroes members so if you want to get your hands on this, you need to subscribe by 20th June, although boxes have been selling out fast so be quick! It is a golden shimmering highlighter and is absolutely gorgeous.
The last product is the Rose Quartz eyeshadow which has been selected for its perfectly universal shade. This look a lot darker in the circular pot than it does when swatched. It is infused with the essence of rose, coconut and Vitamin E for “long-lasting, crease-proof luminosity”. Almost all eyeshadows crease on me so it’ll be interesting to see how this holds up…I’ll do a full review shortly.
