Days like today are the days I realize how much I’ll miss Prescriptives when it’s gone for good. Although many of you expressed sadness and outrage over the base makeup items in the collection, I’m actually quite saddened over the limited edition items. I really enjoy special collection releases from Prescriptives and this year’s Lustre Holiday Color Collection is truly brilliant.
Stepping up Holiday with an array of color gift sets, plus the new Holiday Cheek and Eye Palette, and now a full color collection, Prescriptives is going out with a bang.
Check out some of Prescriptives Lustre Holiday Color Collection after the jump!
Prescriptives Lustre Holiday Color consists of two new eye palettes, highlighting powder, lipsticks, and glosses. As always Prescriptives caters to both those who enjoy warmer or cooler shades. I’m leaning towards loving the warmer selection of shades as that’s what I tested out and I’m also on this brown shadow kick lately.
Prescriptives Warm Lustre Baked Eye Color Quad is a quad of baked shadows with a subtle shimmer finish that compliment my brown eyes beautifully. The shades include a creamy white, brown, copper, and brass. The shadows aren’t heavily pigmented so you can get more of a softer look, the lack of heavy pigmentation actually makes them easier to work with, blend, etc….you can of course build color up quite easily and create a softer or dramatic look. The quad is a dream come true for me because as I said I’m a bit of a brown kick lately. I wouldn’t call them festive but they fall into the realms of elegant.
Prescriptives Lustre Shimmer Cheek Color is perfect for a soft focus dash of color on cheeks. It has a subtle shimmer finish and nice soft, silky formula that’s easy to blend. The warm version is a peachy brown base which gives a golden glow to my cheeks and face.
Prescriptives Moonbeam Reflective in Rose Gold is a warm rosy golden peach which pairs up beautifully well with the warm cheek color and eye palette. The texture is beautifully pigmented and easy to layer on with a brush applicator (hate sponges). It wears incredibly long on my lips and creates a beautiful shimmery reflection.
Overall, I’m quite partial to this collection at the moment. The complete look is more Fall than Holiday but it’s still ideal for evenings out when you aren’t up for the Holiday norm of golds and silvers. Now that I’ve tried the warmer shades I think I’ll head in and peek at the cooler as I really loved the eye quad in particularly and absolutely adored the gloss.
I’m going to say this is a Muse Approval for me. The look is very flattering with my coloring. Likey alot. Worthy of a haul.
Anyone have plans to snag any of this?
