I’m going to wear Simmer with a bright summer eye look – most likely an opaque cobalt eyeliner and some gold/coral/bronze blended onto my lid – plus lots and lots of mascara!

I would wear these all year round! I find mineralize blushes suit me well since my skin is more on the dry side, it gives me a glow

Hi Kim,

The rules state: This contest is open to all participants unless prohibited by their local state/country.

Could you let me know what contest you’re referring to? The majority of our contests are open to all readers, and that has always been the case! There are very few that are not.

I love them all. The orange one looks a little intimidating, but I guess with a light hand I might work. Thank you Christine.

I would wear Sweet Samba with a neutral, natural eye and a soft pop of color on the lips for a bright and glowy summer look. =]

Stephanie Avatar

Since they all have shimmer in them, I would pair them with a neutral matte eye! And nothing on the lips, I just don’t usually wear anything on my lips! πŸ™‚

Sweet Samba is definitely my favourite of the bunch. I’d wear it quite lightly though to give a relatively natural look and wear a purpley-pink lipstick along with a light dusting of grey shadow on the eyes and a cat liner.

Bridget Avatar

Sweet Samba Mineralize Blush would work really well with a tropical colored eye: Cha-Cha-Cha Mineralize Eyeshadow on the outer third, Tropica Mineralize Eyeshadow on the middle, and Dare to Bare Mineralize Eyeshadow on the inner corner.

Jamie Avatar

I’d wear the orange and brown blush with a shimmery golden highlight and then a golden eyeshadow for the lids then maybe a reddish-orange lipstick to top it off

Lauren Avatar

I’d wear Simmer as an eyeshadow on the lid. I’d love to wear it as a highlight on my cheekbones, nose, and above my brows. Of course I’d use them as a blush. So beautiful! My current favorite blush is MAC’s mineralize blush in Handfinish I love pairing it with my clinique coral blush.

Honestly these are so versatile, they could be used as eyeshadow, highlight, patted over a lipstick or lipgloss to add dimension, as well their intended use as a blush.

I would wear Exotc Ember as an eyeshadow for various looks. I am on the darker side, so I can’t see wearing this as a blush or highlighter, but it is a beautiful and very interesting combination. I would experiment with swirling and using the two tones independently.

Andrea Barreto Avatar

How I would use the lighter one as a highlighter and the pinker one as a blush and the bronzer one when I dont want to wear a blush I can just use that so I could have a little bit of color and have a bold lip
