Modern Minerals x Lotus Wei Emotive Makeup Collection

June 06, 2016

Would you take a good look at the beautiful Beauty Heroes June's box*? I've been really loving this months selection, it is so pretty! Beauty Heroes has brought us The Emotive Makeup Collection by Modern Minerals, featuring four full sized products worth $96 (which you can get for $39 + shipping cost = Ah-mazing!). June's Beauty Heroes box with a theme Beauty Is As Beauty Feels, is their very first all makeup box and I have to say they have chosen a great brand and lovely products. Like I said, in the box are products from Modern Minerals, but not just any MM products. Three out of four are infused with Lotus Wei flower essences and a touch of rose to awaken positivity and minimize the effects of negative emotions. Yas! Gosh, green beauty products are so amazeballs I can't even handle!<3
Modern Minerals is a brand founded by Diane Read and when she met flower alchemist Katie Hess, founder of Lotus Wei, they together set out to take beauty to a deeper level. With a mutual understanding beauty is interconnected and that our emotions are reflected in our physical features, they created a ground-breaking collection of emotive makeup that evokes a celebration of whole beauty. This month’s theme, Beauty Is As Beauty Feels, is directly inspired by the inner alchemy of the emotions that reflects in our outer beauty.

I will be completely honest and say that when I opened the box I was like hmmm, lip glosses. Like many I'm also more into lipsticks and don't even wear lip glosses. But after a few wears I can easily say that these Modern Minerals lip glosses are really nice. They are very easy to wear, moisturizing, they don't dry out my lips and are not sticky. Well the hair can stick to my lips when the wind blows but when you press your lips together there's none of that yucky sticky feeling that has always annoy me and stop me from wearing lip glosses. My lips are soft and smooth, looking very lovely and juicy.
Citrine Invigorating Lip Gloss is inspired by the beautiful peach, orange Citrine gemstone, a gemstone that I've been wearing for a couple of months and it's safe to say that I've been really loving it. This peachy, nude gloss with a golden shimmer glow has just the right amount of shimmers that don't make you look all glittery and leave glitter all over your face. It gives my lips a beautiful glowy finish, a beautiful shine. It contains Menthol which gives it that tingly and plumping feel and it also tastes sweet, which is always nice in a lip product. Lip gloss Citrine is the only product from the box which is not infused with Lotus Wei flowers essences and I would have to say it's my least favourite product of the bunch. But keep in mind it has a tough competition.

Padparadscha Lotus Wei infused Lip Gloss is a coral red with gold shimmer. Like Citrine, the shimmer is not all over the place and even though I prefer semi-matte finish of my lipsticks, I have to say I don't really mind the shimmer. If you look closely it's noticeable on the lips but the colour itself is just too pretty to even care for some of those shiny golden particles. How could you not love it if its description goes something like this - pink camellia flowers + pink tourmaline are combined with a light floral fragrance naturally composed of lavender, chamomile, rose and neroli. Oh wow. I also have to mention the name of it - Padparadscha is the name given to the color of a rare, pink and orange sapphire, and is the stone in Jeannie's (Beauty Heroes founder) engagement ring. The word padparadscha translates to ‘the color of a lotus flower at sunset’. How fitting for the beautiful infusion of Lotus Wei camellia flower essence into Modern Minerals makeup. So yes, that's why this lip gloss is now known as Padparadscha. How sweet is that?!
Rose Quartz Eye Shadow is a delicate shimmery blend of warm pink and peach hues. The shade is so gorgeous and I think it's a very flattering and universal shade. Everyone can wear it, I think. Rose Quartz packs a real punch with its glitter particles and it looks especially beautiful as an inner corner highlighter. On the picture I'm wearing it all over the lid and oh my does it look pretty. It adds a little something to the eye, a little sparkle and I'm all about that. One thing I have to say is that this eye shadow creases on me. Unfortunately that isn't anything new, so maybe take my opinion with a grain of salt. Another thing. As this eye shadow comes in a loose powder form I would love if it would have a lock sifter so it would stop the powder from falling out.

Modern Moonstone Cream Highlighter is an absolutely stunning golden, warm highlighter with ultra-silky texture. It is my definite favourite of the bunch, it is just so perfect and wonderful. I don't even know how to explain it but it's making me all sorts of fuzzy and warm inside and I can't get enough of it. I love applying it on the tops of my cheeks and on the top of the brow bone. It makes my feature pop and oh my god you need it in your life! So flattering and perfect for summer. Moonstone has been exclusively launched to Beauty Heroes members and I'm so happy it was. It's just so stunning, you feel me?
As beautiful and unique this box is, it is bound to be sell through as it was the May Beauty Heroes box.vSo be sure to hop on board as soon as you can. Join Beauty Heroes and get your June's Box here. I love it and I'm sure you will too.

Have a great week!

Much love,

Jana xx
