Holiday 2016 – Lime Crime Diamond Crushers

Wait…WHaAaaAT!?  Where were THESE when I was competitively Ballroom Dancing, dang it?!  

These are the PERFECT, iridescent light catchers (and I’m highly irritated that they’ve come out now…several years too late!)  The names are as sassy as the shades, and I love that they (along with many other companies) are following suit of such brands as Colour Pop and showing swatches on a variety of skin tones.  *LOVE*



FLUKE. . .

I can’t well wear them to the dojo (lest my partner’s gi light up like a Christmas ball) but…I hope other people indulge in the high-wattage glow! 

The Diamond Crushers are meant to layer over lip color, but I’m sure you could use them on your own.  You could also very likely get creative (because…why not?) and use them to reflect light to / from other areas.  Eye gloss, anyone?  

Spring / Summer 2016 – MAC Future

This is a SHARE of two posts…

I saw PerilouslyPale post some great photos of this up and coming Spring 2016 Collection, as well as ChicProfile, and wanted to pass them on! 🙂  MAC has been a long time favorite with my background in Ballroom Dancing, Ballet, and Figure Skating – their products ALWAYS perform as hard as we do, and the pigment stays true! (Impressive!)

Spring 2016 Forecast – M.A.C.

A few images of M.A.C.’s Spring 2016 Trend Forecast Palettes have been out and about in the last few days, and they remind me a lot of my color and trend work (anyone familiar with Pantones?! 🙂 ) from my Fashion days.

You can purchase the goodies online at M.A.C. for $40:

“From London to Milan, SS16’s most-talked-about colour trends are now available in limited-edition lip and eye palettes, each with six shades. Be sure to add a touch of glamour to your look with our new gold shade of Studio Eye Gloss.”

The Spring Lip Palette ranges “from pale peach to deep wine.”

The Eye Palette is composed of the “most-talked-about shades of creamy shadows, from saffron to deep berry.”

To add to the fun, the Money Honey eye gloss “provides high shine with buildable coverage” in a “true yellow gold metallic glitter.”  Sass-y!

I love the colors – Feel a bit more Autumn to me but…loving them all the same!
