These are the items that I ordered from the new collection.
Highlight powder ‘Crew’
Initial thoughts: I like this a lot, however, I was really surprised that it swatches a very pale pink colour. It has less of a sheen than a normal highlighting powder and is a fairly odd colour.
Having said this, the stripes of colour are just an over spray so I’m expecting it to swatch an off – white colour after the stripes have worn away.
Blusher ‘Fleet Fast’
Initial thoughts: Lovely mid-toned peachy pink, shows up very well on the skin so a light hand is needed with this blusher. The above photograph I would say shows the colour to be ever so slightly more pink than it actually is in person.
Lipstick ‘Sail La Vie’
Initial thoughts: This is supposed to be a bright coral colour (excuse the lighting on the picture – it was a very grey day!) and in comparison to a true red it looks coral, however, on the lips, to me it’s not a true coral. I feel like it looks like less of a coral and more of a bright orange red. Still love it though!
Lip Pencil ‘Throw Me a Line!’ (pro longwear)
Initial thoughts: True red long – lasting lip pencil. Glides smoothly, nicely pigmented and stayed put all day!
Lipglass ‘Blessedly Rich’
Initial thoughts: Very pigmented, quite shimmery but gorgeous burnt orangey colour with golden shimmer. I feel this colour is very unique.
Here are the items I have swatched for you: Left to Right : Sail la Vie, Throw Me a Line, Blessedly Rich, Fleet Fast and Crew
