I used to be one of those girls that believed the perfect Summer eye look started and ended with various shades of aqua.
Sadly, I had to grow up and I can’t quite pull off aqua as well as I once could.
Nowadays I’m all about warm hues of brown and gold for Summer and various shades of softer peach, coral, and orange.
The new Sonia Kashuk Spring Awakenings Face Palette is my perfect pick for Spring/Summer looks.
Plus, dude, totally gives me Sophia kinda moments….
Let’s take a peek!
The new Pixi Week of Wakeup Makeup Palette is making its way around the Beauty Blogsphere. I’m sure you’ve seen and heard about it a bit already eh?
When I originally saw it I thought it was some sort of massive palette but was pleasantly surprised it was quite small and travel friendly. It basically includes an entire week of makeup in one super easy to use palette so you’ll have a brand new, fresh look starting on Monday and following right through to Sunday.
I think they released the kit at such a great time as you might be preparing for a Spring Break holiday soon or even a Summer one and this gives you the essentials for several looks without heavy, bulky packaging.
Let’s take a look!
Milly designer Michelle Smith brings a whimsical touch to Clinique’s Spring Collection 2011 with the Pretty in Prints Palette. You may have a tiny case of deja vu here as the Pretty in Prints Palette does so remind me of the Holiday 2010 Strawberry Fudge Palette but this time we go a bit peachy rather than pink!
The palette features four shades of shadow, blush, applicators, a how to guide, and a Milly drawstring pouch for stashing it all in!

It’s probably to early to say this but I’m leaning towards saying that the Smashbox Softbox Eye Palette is my favorite Summer palette. I’m really loving softer more nude shades of shadow lately. I can’t quite go the bolder, crazy look for Summer anymore. Heck, I really loved aqua at one time as a primary shade for the warm weather but now I’m more about delicate shades of shimmering brown, gold, and bronze and the Softbox Eye Palette brings just that.
Photographers love shooting in natural light to create a diffused, softer look and that’s exactly what this palette does. The shades give a soft focused look that’s romantic and ethereal but still have the fun Summer vibe as well!
You NEED this palette.
Wet n Wild has a release of four new, limited edition Vanite ColorIcon Eye & Lip Quartet Palettes. Each palette has a “princess” theme with two lipglosses and two shadows.
I have to say I dislike the over use of “ColorIcon” as I commonly associate the name with the awesome six pan palettes. I will say I liked the idea of these because believe me a few years ago you couldn’t get me to touch such inexpensive makeup as I was simply too snobbish to bother however brands have evovled, Wet n Wild being one, and more recent releases are surprisely good for the price. However, they are made in China which could make or break the deal for some.
I purchased these at Harmons for $3.99 each.
Let’s have a look and see what I thought!
