The shadows in this quad are so soft and buttery! I’m a huge fan of the READY formula and the Modern Icon shadows are no exception to that. There is no powder kick-up or lack of pigment. They last a good 10 hours or more, blend seamlessly and contain the proprietary SeaNutritive Mineral Complex for us over 40 girls.  All the shades are a satin finish: not shimmery but not quite matte. This finish is perfect for over 40 women because it doesn’t emphasize creapy lids or lines but is not chalky either. The other thing I really like about this quad is that you can go for a very soft, muted look or use the darker colors only for a more sultry look.

Chic is a pale icy pink, Carefree is a lovely satin true peach, Sophisticate, a satin dusky lavender and Exhale is a smoky mauve taupe with a matte finish.

For this eye look I used Chic on the brow bone, Sophisticate on the lid and Exhale as liner.

This is Chic on the lid all the way up to the brow bone, Carefree in the crease, Sophisticate under the lower lash line, and Exhale smudged to line.

There are three Marvelous Moxie Lipsticks in the collection for all skin tones. I love these creamy. long lasting and ultra pigmented lipsticks–they have a beautiful satin finish. Dream Big is a pretty soft peach. On some, this may be used as a nude shade, on my pale lips, it’s straight peach. Fall In Love is a tawny, brown based peach and Express Yourself, a bright peachy coral–LOVE! This cute lipstick case was a gift with purchase from Ulta.

The Modern Pop Cream Glaze Topcoat is a fun addition. It takes the lipstick and makes them super shiny and mutes them into pastel shades. It’s not really sparkly but adds lots of shine and softens the color. Wear the lipstick alone for more of a pop!

Classic Cream Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliner gives eyes that wide awake look without being as noticeable as a white eyeliner. Line the waterline and be prepared for eyes to get noticed! You’ll look like you had a good 8 hours of sleep even if you didn’t!

Modern Pop Lash Domination Mascara is one of my all-time favorite mascaras. It separates and defines beautifully. For the 60’s inspired look, I use two-three coats.

  31. I just decided to use this collection, and/or the ideas from same, for the basis of my Autumn everyday look. I didn’t have the cash in Spring, and had a different look in mind anyhow. But as the light gets less here in WNY, adding some gleam with these products has been fun. I do love the shadows, and the gloss— already owned a similar liner, but I am sadly in need a the lipstick, in, I think, Dream Big. I have to say, the shadows wear well!
