The best beauty collections are released during the warmer months. Think about it. When do you see the most vibrant colors and playful products? Summertime is a beauty lovers dream. This season, all the biggies have released amazing collections from MAC’s fierce Style Warrior to Bobbi Brown’s soothing Nauticals. There are so many amazing new products, I can hardly wait to get my hands on them all. This Summer’s makeup must haves are nothing, if not diverse.
NARS Eyeshadow in Tropic
Why It’s A Must Have:
Tropic is a new addition to the NARS family found in the Summer 2009 collection. NARS is known for their incredible pigments. Their rich, brilliant colors are nearly unmatched (MAC gives them a run for their money), and I’m feening for this vibrant teal with silver specks. It’s a perfect addition to any summer makeup kit. Who doesn’t need another nighttime eyeshadow?
China Glaze Custom Kicks
Why It’s A Must Have:
Lancome’s Spring 2009 collection, Pink Irreverence, featured some gorgeous pink, magenta and other rosey shades. But the star in my mind was the Piha Black lipgloss.
Even though so many of my friends and family looked at me like I was nuts for wanting a black lipgloss, I searched high and low. Every store in my area was sold out. Finally Mo, from Mythbuster Beauty (Side note… Mo, I love you!!), shipped me a mysterious package. Squeals of delite erupted through our house for the next few hours (yep, I admit, I squealed).
And since some ladies still doubt it’s wearability, I’m here with a collection of photos showing off cool ways to wear Lancome’s Piha Black gloss without looking like a goth-princess…
Here’s Part 3 in Bionic’s series on lip color’s we should all be rocking for Spring 2009.
For more suggestions, be sure you caught Part 1 and Part 2. And then leave your thoughts below on any lip colors you’ll be wearing this spring!
Sorry about the color changes in my skin tone… I was trying to get the best light possible to catch how each lip color *really* looks; and our days went from brilliant sun to super-cloudy.
Today is all about the green! And in honor of St. Patty’s Day, I created this green makeup eye look accented with gold shimmer, a gold-flecked blush, and topped with super glossy lips.
Here’s the how-to:
This Spring is all about the colorful rosy lip and the uber-pale pout. For those of us wondering what colors might work, I’m digging through my stash to bring you a series that covers colors from all the spring trends.
