Ice the competition. The temperature drops, predictability plummets, but a new beauty barometer sets the tone with light snowflake lips, twinkle shimmer shades with opalescent pearl. Cool neutral eyes suddenly combust, then go up in smoke, with new Penultimate Eye Liner for the deepest velvet black. New 41 Lash with criss-cross design for a luxe, longer look. Two Reflects Glitter for a limited time, a hot new cool. Just chill.

OVERALL, Sheer Minerals is a collection that will appeal to many. It has the coveted mineralize skinfinishes in Petticoat and So Ceylon, plus permament and newcomer Soft & Gentle. Several mineralize duos are back in action, though those aren’t really up my alley, despite looking so pretty when swatched. Sheer Minerals/Mineralize consists of a lot of mineral face products (foundations, powders, etc.) that will be permament. Some products will switch out as they release new ones (like the eyeshadows). I picked up the mineralize skinfinishes (this is probably my third time owning Petticoat–maybe I’ll keep it this time!) and the sheersheen powders. I already have several mineralize blushes, so I could pass on those! See swatches here!

OVERALL, Adoring Carmine didn’t impress me like it originally did when I saw the promo photos for the launch. The packaging just isn’t as sleek and luxe as it looked in the images. Instead, the bright patent red portion of the bag looks too much for me. I also found that most of the lipsticks were just too sheer for my personal preference! I did pick up the Rose Lips set, mostly because of the pink gloss, which caught my eye.
