First the colors and textures that make this new collection special: The colors are not only radiant, eye-popping and soft, but long-lasting. Thanks to the new eye-primer which helps the shadow stay put for hours. The colors are also very blendable and wearable. No crazy neons or too shiny or glimmery color which are better reserved for the young. This collection is for everyone, every age and every occasion. They come in three finishes: Soft Matte, Soft Shimmer and Super Shimmer.
You have plenty of color choices, maybe too many! I truly love them all. They included colors that can go from summer to fall and they won’t look off in the changing seasons. Lavenders, soft pinks and navy blue! The whole color spectrum elegantly toned up or down to subtly complement your style.
You can also either blend or color block for whatever look you’re after.
Now the secret!: The duos and quads are numbered so that you know what color goes where! This is kind of neat, especially for those of us who get a little lost when given the choice of several colors to wear in one compact! Where to start? Easy! The instructions are on the little mirror! Numbered by area.
Quickliner for Eyes Intense: Very easy to apply. Intense and long-lasting. Colors are beautifully dark and tonned to make eyes really pop. The eye-liners match many of the eyeshadows, making them longer lasting and enhancing them.
But, beware. If you go to the counter you might end up wanting them all! They are very flattering!
Of course, this is my take. Go see for yourself and get back to me! I’d love to hear what you think!
