The four shades were created to flatter a range of eye colors such as blue, hazel, and brown. Almay carefully selected shades they felt would flatter different color eyes and marketed each liquid shadow towards that eye type.
As you know, I’m all about wearing whatever I want on my eyes. I’m not really convinced any one shade of shadow is meant for my brown eyes. I like soft browns and I like bold aquas and I love pink and gold…really any color shade of eyeshadow is cool by me. The only reason I’d avoid certain shades would be because some clash with my dark circles. Aside from that I never had any issues wearing any shade I wanted to. So I’m not completely sold on all the marketing I see lately for shades that would be “suitable” for my eye color.
So what did I do? I was a rebel and hauled three of the four shades Almay introduced in the new Intense I-Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer. Even the one for green eyes…nanner nanner!
And the Pantone Color of the Year for 2013 is…drum roll…Emerald! Last night Pantone announced that the color of the year would be Emerald so expect Spring and Summer 2013 Makeup Collections to let loose da GREEN!
I was more excited about last year’s tangerine shade to be honest…emerald I’m a little meh on.
Pantone calls it “Lively. Radiant. Lush….A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well being, balance, and harmony.”
What do you think?
Sephora still has an ongoing contract with Pantone so I imagine we’ll see a gorgeous collection featuring this shade for either Spring 2013 or Summer 2013.
If we’re giving awards out for cute packaging the Body Shop Body Butter Lollipop Gift Set should get one. I got a few of these darling little lollipop shaped sets for friends and family during one of the Body Shop’s rather awesome Holiday sales. Each set contains five body butters for $25 but I was lucky enough to haul it 50% Off. Nice!
