Borghese Eclissare ColorRise Blush in Flight

IMG_20150831_230845Swatches top with flash & bottom without flash

This is the Borghese Eclissare ColorRise blush in Flight which is a deep bronze blush with gold shimmer. This blush is quite pretty and comes off more as a deep warm rose on my skin tone than a bronze would on lighter skin tones. The gold shimmer is not as evident once applied with a brush, which is more visible in swatches. The packaging is sleek and slim. It is sturdy embossed cardboard with a magnectic lid and decent size mirror.

The blushes in this line are described as wearable, neutral shades that are perfect for any skin tone. Comprised of pure pigments for an even distribution and a more natural glow. The color glides on smoothly, perfectly providing a flawless finish and can be used to sculpt, contour and define cheekbones. Flight (1.0 oz) retails for $30.00.

July Favorites – Milani, Laura Gellar & Coastal Scents Blushes

At the start of the summer I decided to ‘Shop My Stash’ and give the blushes in my collection so love and actually use them. I have quite a large collection of blushes, well for one person but hey there are 365 days in a year. 

I keep my blushes in these little baskets so its easy to pick one and use ts contents. This month I gave some love to the Milani Cosmetics and Laura Gellar baked blushes in my collection as well as a few Coastal Scents Forever blushes (all purchased by me). I also used the Borghese color Eclipse ColorRise blush in Stunner. Some days I used single ones, other days I mixed and some I used as highlighters (a few of the Milani ones are perfect as highlighters). 

I have previously swatched and reviewed the Milani blushes here, here, here and here. The only one I have not swatched is No. 11. The Coastal Scents Forever blushes I have swatched here.

I will swatch the Laura Gellar baked blushes in the future, so check back for that post.

Coral & Mint Nails

In keeping with the current color trend orange/coral/mint, I had posted a blog on shopping my nail polish stash to pick out colors that would fit into the trend, see post here. Below are a few of the manicures I’ve done so far.
Borghese Menta- this is a gorgeous mint green with the slightest hint of gold shimmer.

Julep Maven Alicia – a gorgeous although difficult to apply pastel peachy orange

Jesse’s Girl JulieG – YT guru JulieG’s namesake and favorite shade ‘coral’
I’ll be at a conference for a few days, so I don’t know how often I’ll get to blog or even read any blogs. But when I come back I have many drafts that need to be posted 🙂
See you in the next post 🙂

S’/S’ 2012 Trend – Coral, Mint, & Orange Nails

I went to the mall and was delighted to see a sea of corals, oranges and mint greens washing over the department stores. So for the coming weeks, I’ll try to wear nail colors that embrace this fun colorful trend. I picked out all the corals, mints and oranges from my collection and was surprised to see I have so many bottles that represented each color. I’m very excited for this little project as not only will I be trendy but I’ll be able to wear some polishes that may otherwise have been neglected.
