Neons are trending at the moment but if I’m honest I can’t really wear ‘em. I think neon shades rock on dark skin but I look awfully garish if I try say a bright orange lipstick. As much as I want to wear neon orange it just doesn’t look right. But I’m all about convincing myself it looks awesome.
Every do that?
Tell yourself that something looks brilliant but in reality you know how bad it really looks.
I am digging on Bobbi’s “safe way” to wear neons. Her Neons and Nudes Collection features delicate shades of color for eyes and cheeks and combines it with a pop of vibrant lipstick. Perhaps this will make it easier to embrace the trend this season.
Let’s take a look at her new Ultra Nude Palette that you can pair up with a bright shade of daring lipstick!
Another of my favs this Holiday was the QVC Exclusive, 20 Piece Set from Bare Escentuals, Box of Gems.
I loved this one. The fact that it contained 20 products was a big helping hand here but I also generally loved what was included in the set and felt like it brought together some very nice shades of color.
Take a look!
I have alot of favorites this year from the Holiday Collections released but some more than others stand out for me. Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 is an eight shade palette available in two shades selections for Holiday 2011. I’m already very impressed with Bare Minerals for stepping up their game and entering the pressed shadow realm plus the formula is proving to be amazing as well. The Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 brings even more of that great formula to us.
Let’s take a little look at this palette!
Rimmel introduced its HD Glam Eyes Palettes earlier this year in the UK. A celebration of all good things British these eyeshadow palettes feature four shades of shadow in a Union Jack design. Anglophiles like myself swoon when we see makeup and the UK combined.
Formula is amazing on these little guys and the price isn’t too bad either at $4.99 each.
Can you guess the problem though here?
L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow has landed on our shores.
Released early last year in Europe, these shadows are making the rounds in drugstores here in the states. So far I’ve caught them at Harmons, CVS, and Walgreens with prices ranging from $7.99 to $9.49.
They got pretty strong raves on UK blogs when they were originally introduced and I was quite curious to try them out for myself so it’s nice to see them locally. L’Oreal has some pretty strong releases for Spring 2012 up their sleeves and I do believe Infallible Eyeshadow will get some strong raves across the board. The formula is very nice however it has a few hiccups worthy of a mention.
