China Glaze Poolside Collection Sneak Peek

China Glaze Poolside Collection Sneak Peek

Review coming soon (probably tomorrow, but in case the sky falls, no promises!)… but boy, capturing the brightness and color of neons on camera is a pain in the behind.  Like I cannot even express to you how many shots it took just to get a few decent ones worth posting.

So, I thought, “You know what might be really cool?  If Temptalia readers shared their advice and expertise on how to best apply neon nail polish.”

Share your tips & tricks to get the best out of your neon lacquers!

The Spring Season: Napoleon Perdis Havana Lipstick

NP Set Havana Lipstick ($15.00) is a soft, creamy medium pink with a subtle pink shimmer. This is an easy-to-wear shade for just about any skin tone, because it’s not too yellow or blue-based–very much neutral. It has a very soft feel when applied to lips and not at all drying. I got about three hours of wear with this shade in particular. There’s a bit of a glossy sheen to it, but I still like to layer a lipgloss on top for extra pop.

The Spring Season is a series of posts featuring my favorite soft beige, coral, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for the first blossom of spring — that runs through March 2010.

Sugarpill Cosmetics: ChromaLust Loose Eyeshadow

Sugarpill Chromalust

Sugarpill Cosmetics released eleven shades of Chroma Lust loose eyeshadows ($12.00 for 0.18 oz.). These loose eyeshadows are ultra finely milled with rich color pay off that apply smoothly. Many of these eyeshadows are also vegan (check their website which marks which shades are vegan), for those curious! I’d recommend using these with a stickier base (e.g. something like mixing medium) for brighter and more long-lasting eyeshadow. Myself, I’d use these as bases, much like I’d use MAC Pigments.

These are held cynlider-style plastic containers with slightly glossy black screw-on lids with the Sugarpill logo printed (it’s not a sticker!) on top. The containers are cute and functional (reminded me of stumpier, smaller versions of MAC Pigments). There’s no insert or lid once you open, so take care when opening.

I really liked the texture of these, because they were so soft and smooth, you didn’t need much to get intense color. My favorite shades were Goldilux, Absinthe, and Royal Sugar.
