Korres #44 Orange Blush

Korres Orange Blush

Korres #44 Orange Blush ($24.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a beautiful shade of rich coral-orange with a soft golden shimmer-sheen.  This is one wickedly pigmented blush, and it’s perfect for a pop of color on the cheeks during the summer.  It’s truly a stunning shade — I see this working better on warmer skin tones, particularly on deeper and tanner skin tones.  The powder is smooth, silky, and it wears well (no issues with surprise! no more blush mid-day).  I love the luminosity this shade of blush lends to cheeks–it’s glowy and healthy and lovely.  I can’t think of a single thing I don’t like about this blush, to be honest!  Korres even gives you plenty o’ product for your buck, too — around 0.05 oz. or so more than your average blusher.

Psst, you can see it in a look here!

Recommendation:  If you love coral or orange blushes, I definitely consider this a must-have!

ORLY Cosmix Collection for Fall 2010

ORLY introduces its latest addition to its portfolio of textured finishes with Cosmic FX. The new, limited-edition collection delivers multi-dimensional flashes of intense shimmering shine that is so electrifying your nails will explode with color! This lighting phenomenon is achieved by ORLY’s exclusive MINERAL FX technology.

The innovation infuses natural rock minerals, crystals, and glass to give nails a special optical effect with extreme luster, rich pearlescence, and a smooth, sparkling spectrum of concentrated color.

The MINERALFX technology includes specialty mica, that allows for a clearer, vibrantly bright lustrous shimmer. Crystals allow for a multi-dimensional color transformation. Glass particles carefully controlled in shape and size create a luminous phenomenon. This combination infused with the Silica and specific colors selected create this exclusive technology that gives nails a unique optical effect that’s magnified as the lighting source intensifies or viewing angle changes.

ORLY Plastix Collection for Fall 2010

ORLY Plastix Collection for Fall 2010

ORLY, the company that continually pioneers the Nail Lacquer arena with the most cutting edge colors, technology and textures, introduces the Plastix Collection. Complementing the Fall 2010 runway looks that featured bright neon colors amid shiny black plastic, latex, and rubber reinventions of vintage must-haves, Plastix evokes the vintage classic trend with four new lacquers and a unique new formula that coats the nails with a smooth glossy matte “plastic” finish. The exclusive finish and texture is a first in the nail category, delivering a monochromatic, shiny and rubbery look that takes experimentation to an entirely new level, with the focus being on both the distinctive nail surface, as well as the latest in color trends. The unique look can not be achieved with color alone as the finish is a must for recreating the true “plastic” statement.

Nail Lacquer ($7.50)

  • Viridian Vinyl Glossy blue-green
  • Purple Pleather Shiny purple
  • Old School Orange Classic orange
  • Retro Red Traditional red
