Sometimes I come across things that are too good and handy to be used in only one way. I mean, if I love a sewing pattern for a blouse I usually adapt it to a dress. If I love a color of a blush I can use it as an eyeshadow, etc. After having a look at my wardrobe and my makeup stash, I decided to start a new rubric “#Two in one”.
We shall start with a new blush by Collistar from their Summer 2015 collection. This brand appeared in Karstadt a couple of years ago but, being a loyal Dior and YSL customer, I somehow never paid attention to Collistar. Several weeks ago I was desperately looking for a substitute for my favorite peachy eyeshadow by Clinique that I bought 6 years ago and that was nowhere to be found any longer. My desperation led me to the
not so new stand by Collistar where I saw this interesting thingy:
Bingo! The central color – fair rosy peach – was exactly what I was looking for, the other two – the highlighter with rosy shimmer and the rosy coral – being a very pleasant surprise.
The texture is very soft and satiny with a great color payoff. I failed in trying to photograph the swatches on my hand: The highlighter has exactly the same color as my skin, so the camera wouldn’t focus. Nevertheless, I have great swatches of these colors on my cheeks and eyelids. Have a look:
How do you like the look? And what do you think about the new rubric?
