Sighhh I received my Spring 2011 Sephora catalog in the mail yesterday...I am in love with the Spring trends this season! Going to have to ask Josh for a raise-pretty much dying over every page! If you're not on Sephora's mail list, you NEED to sign up-their seasonal catalogs are gorgeous little treats! If you are on the mailing list & have your catalog whip it out and lets go through it together:
Okay, I know I just got done saying that I was dying over every page-but obviously I didn't love everything. And well, the cover was rather 80s in a bad way. Just boring, boring, boring-Francois you can do better! The look for the cover came from the Limited Edition Nars set: Front Row Set. The eyeshadow colors are dull, everyone in the world already owns Orgasm lipgloss & a black eyeliner, and The Multiple in Palm Springs doesn't look great on everyone. The look that should have been on the cover was the look created from the Limited Edition Nars set: Fashion Forward! DYING, love, love love this look. A bold electric purple high pigmented shadow, a mini Multiple in Orgasm, Hollywoodland Shadow Pencil (pale gold creamy eye pencil), and Easy Lover lipgloss (sheer hot pink) Arghh I NEED this kit. The look in the catalog would have to be toned down to go out in public-because purple eyeshadow all the way to the brow isn't hot. But this kit is & hopefully if I can get my hands on one Ill do a makeup tutorial on how to pull this look off in time for Spring!
Tokidoki = genius! CUTEST freakin' packaging & the product is actually good! That usually doest happen ( i.e Benefit...they have the cutest packaging but the product falls short). The new Limited Edition Sodashop Tin is awesome its a $225 value for $49-it comes with a ton of stuff including 12 eyeshadows all of which are beautiful shades, a Perfetto Eyeliner in Carina (eggplant) the perfetto eyeliner is a liquid eyeliner with an innovative brush to help you get the perfect liquid liner look. With the chisel tip you can create three different liner looks: thin, medium, or a heavy liner look. Also in the tin is a cute little Tokidoki character magnet and a sheet of Tokidoki character stickers to decorate your life with.
Make Up Forever is one of my favorite brands. For all those MAC lovers just try Make Up Forever-its comparable but BETTER! And they have a liner that is perfect for the vivid brights spring trend. The Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes in Pistachio 17L is AMAZING!!! Its a vibrant yellow-green and I'm absolutely, deeply, passionately in love with the whole look on the model in the catalog rep-ing the vibrant brights look! The liner is creamy it glides right on the lid-super pigmented and waterproof so its not going to move on you. The vivid brights is my ultimate favorite look in the spring catalog-the vibrant yellow -green liner paired with the vivid red lip oh my gosh...NEED, NEED, NEED!
Orange lip trend...although I think this lip color is pretty sweet, only a view people can actually pull it off. I'm not one of them but think Kim Kardashian would look perfect in an orange lip. So if you look like Kim then go for it! But if you look like me...then don't. HA!
Okay ground hog I hope you were right in that Spring is just around the corner because I'm ready to go bold & start experimenting with these new looks! But I'm not so sure I can wait...So, if you happen to see a girl grocery shopping with yellow-green eyeliner in an great red lip you'll know who it is :)
