I did a video review, excited?? This collection is very soft, subtle and easy to wear. I’m learning to become a realist, and not a dreamer. For this collection, I’m going to tell you the unique products that you should definitely invest in.
Check out Yummy411’s in-depth review of the N Collection here! First off, I love the Mineralized Skin Finish powders, the natural colors as well as the newer colors, Warmed (Brown) and Light Flush (Pink). They don’t look ashy on us, and they don’t look like colors that we already have. Sorry, no pics!
On to the eyes. If you love subtle, lighter eye colors, than this collection is for you. I wouldn’t necessarily say you must have any of these shades. I do love eye liner in Graphblack, because it’s the only pencil that I know of that doesn’t bleed or move on your lower lashline. Groundwork Paint Pot is the perfect base for any eyeshadows, which is definitely a must have. This is a permanent product, thanks goodness.
As for the lips, well, there are several beautiful shades that we could invest in. Each color is soft and beautiful, and anyone of any complexion could easily wear them. All you need is appropriate lipliner. I’m so sorry that the swatches didn’t show up very well. I tried y’all!
Keep in mind that these colors were used ALL OVER THE RUNWAY at Spring/Summer ’08 Fashion Week, so this is the trend of the season!! The look to the right is a face chart from J.Mendel’s spring collection. I think this look would be gorgeous on all of us! He uses Rich Ground fluidline as an eyeshadow, which is a stunning bronze-ish deep brown, as well as Constructivist Paint Pot, a rich bronze, with N4 lipstick.
