This week's Guest Beauty Blogger, Makeup For Life, dishes on a hot new product from Make Up For Ever.
Thanks to the recent LA Makeup Show, I have discovered Make Up For Ever's 12 Flash Color Case ($95). This cute palette contains 12 vibrant cream-based colors that can be used on the eyes, cheeks and lips and is sworn by all the pros in the industry (celebrity makeup artist Sharon Gault also used this on singer Keri Hilson for her music videos). The first thing I noticed about the palette is the great selection of colors. They are:
* Gold 004 - Metallic gold
* Coral 002 - Vibrant coral
* Turquoise 000 - Light turquoise
* Fuchsia 005 - Bright fuchsia pink
* Yellow 013 - Vibrant yellow
* Brown 023 - Dark brown
* Silver 003 - Metallic silver
* White 010 - Pure white
* Red 017 - Bright red
* Bright Blue 014 - Bright royal blue
* Leaf Green 008 - Bright green
* Black 011 - Pure black
They are very wearable and the fact that they included all primary colors means you get to be creative and mix them together to create different shades.
The texture is super creamy so it glides on and blends effortlessly. I like to apply with my fingers but you can also use a firm brush like MAC #242 Shader Brush to pat it on. The pigmentation is also excellent and a dab is all you need. Plus, how can you not love that it is multi-purpose?! Just like my favorite NARS Multiple Duo, you can use the product as a blush, lip color, eyeshadow or even as a base for powder eyeshadow and glitter.
The only downside is the price. This is definitely the most I have spent on a palette but if you do the math, a regular Flash Color retails $18 a pop and you get 12 colors in this one so it actually works out to be a pretty good deal.
Ugh, talking about this palette is getting me excited! I need to go back to playing with it now! *lol*
