Make Up For Ever Icon Collection Holiday 2010Excited for all things new from Make Up For Ever? Well how about one last tasty little morsel to whet you appetite for holiday(!) 2010? Say hello to the metallic Icon collection.
My international readers may already be familiar with this collection, as it is considered Spring 2010 everywhere else. For us in the US however, this is slated to launch during holiday 2010. Let's get cracking and take a look-see at the lineup.
A brand new addition to the Make Up For Ever pigment family, Metal Powders are intensely foiled, ultrafine, super silky loose pigment powders. The collection contains four different shades of gold designed to be used to achieve intense metallic looks, with very little effort for the user. While these pack an intense pigment punch, you can rest assured that they glide across the skin with their silky smooth texture. Trust that my mind is already coming up with fun looks I can acheive. Metal smoke anyone?
Shade 1, the truest gold of the bunch:
Shades 2-4: Brassy Gold, Rose Gold, and Green-Gold
Top- Shade 1. Bottom: Shades 1 and 3 mixed
Those looking for a true gold microglitter will be happy to find that in the newest diamond powder. It isn't champagne or a brassy yellow, but rather a true gold in the ultrafine glittery texture of the diamond powders that we all know and love. As you can see above, I experienced a bit of swatch fail for this one, but I hope you can get an idea based on the swatch and the photo you see at the top of this post (top left corner).
Khol lovers rejoice, for you have two brand new pencils to enjoy. A true metallic gold with intense gold shimmer, and a deep black with intense gold shimmer. Creamy, smudgy, and altogether khol-like, these pencils are the perfect accompaniments to an intense (foiled) smoky eye.
Swatched, with flash.
Swatched in natural light to show the glittery shimmer.
With a gorgeous array of mouthwatering molten metallics, Make Up For Ever is making my heart sing. These products are all so new, they aren't even available in the boutique yet. No worries though, as I will be sure to keep you posted on dates of availability.
Any other metallic lovers out there? What do you think of the new lineup?
