From American online swatches and reviews i thought i could use one of the beauty powders (which with MacIntosh-esque embossed rose seems to be the stand out product in the collection) and i figured Blush of Youth would be the more wearable of the two, and A Rose Romance lipstick...but having swatched at my Mac counter i changed my mind on both accounts.
I also picked up Well Dressed blush which everyone has already but is still the most gorgeous pale pink which gives a really subtle flush.So here are the swatches: Am soooo looking forward to trying some subtle looks with these! huzzah!Are you getting anything from this collection or is it just a bit dull?
Blush of Youth was definitely a really pretty warm pink but i felt that it was just a bit too sheer so i decided to go with Summer Rose with a more violet hint to the pink. While its still sheer i think this will be gorgeous dusted over the cheekbones and the great thing is, because its so sheer its impossible to do the over done clown look.
I had thought A Rose Romance would be my choice of the two lipsticks but (as a girls perogative allows) I changed my mind. In the flesh i felt like it was just a wee bit too sugar pink for me. Way to Love however was a gorgeous pale nudey pink with gold reflects and is definitely a 'my lips but better' product.
Oooh and have you noticed that ive learnt to watermark my photos? Note: this took many hours as i am a complete technophobe. What do you think? (slight smug at my own skills face)
