Makeup Files: Spring Colour Announced!

photo1Pantone recently announced their pick of the colours for spring, Cayenne – bright popping, hot coral!  I know it’s no where near Spring in Australia, I mean, I’m still in Summer mode!  But for my Northern Hemisphere babes, read on.

As I know I can’t afford these Stila picks of the colour of Spring, Pantone’s Cayenne, I do know now after some nifty web browsing where you can pick up some amazing cheap alternatives!

Makup Geek | “Mango Tango” | US $5.99
Makeup Geek has become a well known name when it comes to cheap, high quality makeup items.  This eye shadow is no different.  Described as a being “a little bit tart, a little bit sweet, this orangey pink shadow will put a little movement in your feet.”  The bottom line to this shade is: peachy pink with flecks of gold.

Shanghai Suzy | “Miss Sarah-Jane Neon Coral” | AUD$12.95
I can’t go past Shanghai Suzy without buying like 8 lipsticks.  They’re awesome pigmentation and super nourishing formula’s have totally set the bar high, at such a low price too!  All in all, this punchy coral colour will keep you swaying in the breeze until the sunset is as coral as your lips.

Bourjois Paris Blush | “16 Rose Coup de Foudre” | AUD$20.00
his beautiful blush just makes me want Spring to hurry it’s butt up and get here!  With a delectable rose scent which is standard in Bourjois blushers, and such a luxury, and a beautiful buttery baked texture, application is a breeze!  The blush you get from being in love is almost as good as this, almost. 😉

Lip Gloss
NYX Xtreme Lip Cream | “Bonfire” | US$6.00
Wowza, is this one a bright punch of colour, the lip gloss settles into a long-wearing silk finish.  The vivid colours of this range are perfect for a statement lip or an overall bright look.  Bonfire is a very true “Cayenne” colour, totally worthy of it’s place on this list.

What colour will you be coveting this season?
