If the Smashbox In Bloom Eyeshadow Palette proves as good as the few pieces I’ve tried from their Spring 2011 Collection, I’ll be a happy camper indeed.
I know some of you purchased it, what’s the good word?
I haven’t tried it yet but I did try out the Smashbox In Bloom Creamy Cheek Duo, In Bloom Limitless Long Wear Lip Gloss, and In Bloom Artificial Light Powder.
At first glance the MAC & Micky Contractor Collection does so deceive. I was thinking, “eh, probably nothing here to see…”
However, there is a gem or two in the rough even if you think the collection might not be suited to your skin tone. The shadows are all wearable in my opinion and one are two are really keepers, the fluidlines will easily be a must have if you’re a fan since the colors are stunning gem shades, and believe it or not the concealers in the lighter ranges might work well if you prefer a more lighter concealer (I always go lighter with my concealer).
Obviously MAC is gearing the collection towards a specific skin type so not everyone will be able to take advantage of some of the base options in this collection however the color products are definitely a go particularly if you like nudes (the lipstick shades are all very nude-ish and beige) or bolder shades (the shadows are all extra bold).
Let’s have a look at some swatches.
Benefit Coralista is sheer perfection and my favorite boxed blush from the brand without any doubt. I seriously thought they could not improve on an already awesome product or release anything nearly as good. Last year, Sugarbomb released and I knew it would never compete with Coralista for me and I was right, def did not come even close.
Flash forward and Benefit Bella Bamba crosses my path and after a single glance I knew that this might be a worthy contender for Coralista.
I wanna replace the lyrics of Love is All Around with Spring is All Around! But honestly, Spring is SO not around dude, it’s so cold! The good news?
Les Perles de Chanel Collection reminds me it’s not far away now!
Let’s take a look at the Chanel Spring 2011 Collection shall we?
A little sneaky peek to keep us feeling warm and toasty while the weather outside is frightful!
I’ve been mucking around with MAC Stylishly Yours a little bit today. Out of MAC’s three upcoming color collections, this is probably the one I was the least excited about even though I tend to love bolder shades of color. With so many color stories coming out at one time I’m leaning towards loving on Peacocky and Cham Pale the most at this point.
How about you?
I only have two pieces from this collection to share but let’s have a peek anyway.
