Makeup Forever ~ Pretty Pastels





I recently had the opportunity to try on some Fab MakeUp Forever goodies at Sephora in the Rideau Centre. I may have mentioned my new love, the Lab Shine Lip Gloss and Foundation and Primer that now have become staples in my makeup routine. Sorry MAC you’ve been outshone in this department. 

I was also given the opportunity to sample some beautiful Eye Shadow colours in Lemon Shimmer, Lilac Matte
 
While these colours are wonderful, I found that they weren't as pigmented as I hoped they would be. Don't get me wrong, if your fair skinned, I think your peepers will look fabulous but found these two colours for my skin tone to look a bit chalky. The Lemon Shimmer did go on better and I found if I mixed the Lilac Matte with other purples I own I could create a great smoky look - but it required a lot of playing around on a weekend when I had time.

They have some other fabulous Spring colours that I am dying to dry particularly:
 
Especially the Apricot Orange Sheen Eyeshadow which is so in this season. 

Have you tried any Pretty Pastels from Makeup Forever?

  2. I have the same problem with eyeshadows that are not really pigmented. On my skin they just show up whiteish and that's not cute! Pretty colors though :)

  10. So maybe they'd work on my pale-ness? :) I really like the lilac colour- I rarely wear eyeshadow but if I do it's usually purple!

  14. I haven't tried any pastels in a long time, mainly because a lot of them looked a bit chalky on my skin. But the 2 you want to try next look pretty pigmented so they should look great, especially the intense blue!
