Color Club Starry Temptress Collection for Summer 2011 Swatches, Photos & Review

Color Club Starry Temptress

Starry Temptress is the second collection from Color Club for this summer.

Starry Temptress includes neon colors, but with a slight twist. They have holographic glitter in them! You don’t find that very often, in fact I’m not sure I have anything like it.

They also include a glittery holographic top coat with the set, which can give you even more sparkle if you so desire.

The formula on these was much, much better than Wicked Sweet I found. These were thicker, but not in a bad way, and covered all in two coats, no problem! One thing I noticed was that the glitter kind of settled into the polish color so it didn’t look as sparkly as you might expect. Not sure I love that, I need to try with the top coat to see how that makes it look.

Inglot Eye Shadow Swatches, Photos & Review – Part II

Inglot Eye Shadow Neutrals

More Inglot Eye Shadow for you today!

This time it’s all about the browns and neutral colors. All of these are very wearable, and I think people will find them more “user-friendly” than a bright yellow perhaps. :)

Hard Candy Glow All The Way in Tropical Tan Swatches & Review

Hard Candy Glow All The Way Tropical Tan

Hard Candy has a new Glow All The Way lotion this time in Tropical Tan.

Unlike Doll Face, this one is actually not a luminizer, it’s a bronzer and gradual self tanner. But like Doll Face, it too is infused with 24 karat gold.

I have used plenty of self tanners in the past, but gave up on them a couple summers ago after I decided they were too much trouble than they were worth. I have since embraced my paleness ;)

MAC Bronze Everyday Collection for Summer 2011 Swatches, Photos & Review

MAC Bronze Everyday

Welcome to the world of MAC Bronze Everyday for summer 2011.

This new collection, which is now part of their permanent line comes out this week. The 12 piece collection includes:

  • Bronzing Powder ($23)
    • Refined Golden – Finely spun golden with soft pearl
    • Golden - Muted golden tan-beige with shimmer
    • Bronze – Soft bronze with shimmer
    • Matte Bronze – Bare-shouldered bronze
  • Skinsheen Leg Spray ($26.50)
    • Medium Dark – Sheer soft bronze with golden tan-pearl
    • Dark - Golden-bronze
  • Lustre Drops ($19.50)
    • Pink Rebel – Blue pink with gold pearl
    • Sun Rush – Peachy bronze with gold pearl
  • Mineralize Skinfinish Natural ($27)
    • Give Me Sun! – Light summer peachy tan
    • Sun Power – Deep terracotta bronze
  • Mineralize Skinfinish ($28)
    • Soft And Gentle – Gilded peach bronze
    • Gold Deposit – Soft reflective golden-bronze

I was able to check out a variety of the products form this line and have come to the realization that most of it is NOT for fair skinned gals, even those seeking a tanned look. Most everything I tried except the Lustre Drops looks muddy and waaaaaay to dark and warm on me. I wish I had the chance to see the regular Mineralize Skinfinish colors because I think at least the Soft And Gentle one would work for my skin. Oh well!
