Sephora France Palette Green Idyll

Sephora+France+Palette+Green+Idyll

Although I’m not a fan of Sephora Brand cosmetics I can’t deny that the Palette Green Idyll from Sephora France is très assez!

Palette Green Idyll contains cream blushes you can use for cheeks or lips and four shimmer cream shadows for 19,90€. I like the fresh green shades mixed with golds and coppers! Quite lovely for Spring might I say. Euro is converting particularly well at the moment so I decided to order this palette as I’m really loving the design and colors, unsure if I’ll be disappointed or not but I decided what the heck!

Expect a review shortly!

Bobbi Brown Summer Collection 2009 Sneak Peek

Not even Spring yet and already into Summer peeps!

untitled

Jump ahead for some cool images of the upcoming Bobbi Brown Summer Collections 2009….

I located this on MUA from user Lina. Looks like they are images from the Nieman’s flyer that I tossed onto the top of my rather large mail pile (really need to take a look at that! How did I miss it?!) a few days ago!

As per my original post about the Bobbi Brown Platinum Collection release in Japan it appears we are indeed getting it within the US as well! Yay!


Bobbi Brown Sheer Cheek Tint and Bobbi Brown Sheer Gloss, likey! I absolutely adore cheek stains so this is right up my alley and those glosses look amazing!


Also some cream stick blushes are releasing!


Looks like a new Sand and Surf palette as well!


And finally a new bronzing powder and kabuki brish!



I’m quite excited about the lot of it in all honesty as I’ve been on the Bobbi Brown fan girl wagon for a while now. Even though I wasn’t a big lover of my last Bobbi Brown Sand and Surf palette I’m actually quite looking forward to that new palette pictured!

Overall, very nice offerings for the upcoming Spring and Summer months from Bobbi Brown.

What do you think?

Prescriptives Spring Collection 2009: Prescriptives In Bloom Eye Color Duo and In Bloom Cheek Color Duo Review, Swatches, Photos, and FOTD

Prescriptives In Bloom Spring Collection holds a special place in my heart this season as the colors are quite Spring-like and particularly pretty. The packaging on Prescriptives In Bloom Collection is truly fitting for the season ahead with it’s sweet blossoming flower design!

Loves it!

Prescriptives is always a fond favorite season after season for offering a great selection of both warm and cool looks. I love that they take the time out to release two very different color selections that are suitable for warmer and cooler tones or for those who prefer both a warm and a cool look.

Jump ahead to learn more about the cooler side of Prescriptives In Bloom Spring Collection for 2009.

As I mentioned above the Prescriptives In Bloom Collection consists of cooler and warmer shades. Today I’ll be reviewing the cooler shades of the collection but let’s take a brief second to look at what was released.

Four brand new palettes currently available in two shades each for both warm and cool.

Available are:

Warm

  • Sunflower
  • Marigold

Cool

  • Petunia
  • Lily

And two new blush palettes are available in one shade each:

Warm

  • Golden Coral

Cool

  • Fresh Pink

Each collection creates a warmer or cooler look or mix and match to create your perfect Spring look! Both the shadow duos and blushers are a reasonable $24 USD each so you’re not breaking the bank picking up some of the collection. Love, love the packaging on these. It’s a flip top, magnetic compact with a hard case, large mirror inside, and a brilliant pink, red, and orange blooming flower on the lid.

The Prescriptives In Bloom Eye Color Duo in Petunia contains a delicate pale pink shade with a contrasting darker pink almost mauve color. The best way to apply is to use the lightest shade as an all over color wash and follow up using the darker shade in the v of the eye and blending into the crease to contrast with the lighter pink. Line the lower lash line with the pale pink and apply a light layer of the darker mauve shade on top! Of course, you can get a few different looks from the palette by combining or using the shades by themselves. Pigmentation is very good on both shades and the shadows have a silky, soft formula that blends very well.

The Prescriptives In Bloom Blush Duo contains two shades of contrasting blush colors one of which is a deep rose shade and the other softer pink with touches of peach. You can easily use the shades separate but I think swirling your blush around in both creates a deeper shade of pink with a tiny hint of peach that’s quite lovely all it’s own.

Overall, I absolutely loved the cooler side of the Prescriptives In Bloom Collection and think it’s well worth checking out. I can’t think of better colors that are suitable for the Spring weather than these!

I’ll try to get to a counter soon to see if I can pick up the warmer shades as I know some of you requested both a warm and a cool look so do keep your eyes on this space for an update soonish!

Prescriptives In Bloom is available now at www.prescriptives.com or at your local Prescriptives counter.
