As you know, Maestra and I started a huge project. We’ll be testing bunch of lighter toned liquid foundations and writing ton of reviews … I’m already sweeting. We went on a scouting mission to one of our stores and while I was busy writing a list of possible candidates, Maestra was doing recon of new LE’s. When she hit Collistar stand, she started showing me one gorgeous product after another … look at this fantastic green nail polish, blue mascara, and those eyeshadows! And she was right – Collistar came up with on of the best spring limited editions I’ve seen in a while.
But then again, how could it suck color-wise when they drew inspiration from beautiful Capri island. Take a look at the very interesting nail polish selection:
And two gorgeous blushes are not far behind the nail polishes …
I loved eyeshadows and eyeliners too … and mascara is truly blue!
This limited edition was haunting me, so I allowed myself to buy one item from it. If I knew in advanced that this fantastic LE was coming, I would have incorporated few more items in the budget. :D
Like a true polisholic I bought nail polish … Mint Milk shade.
I can not tell you how perfect is this shade for me. It comes in more vibrant pastel like green that usually and it works perfectly with my slightly yellowish tone. Application was nothing special and I liked the brush. Like majority of its sister shades, it can be slightly more blue or green. Now 2 coats are all you need … except when you have horrible headache … then you’re to likely mess up … like I did. So I needed the third coat to undo the damage I managed to do on one of the nails.
Price: 13,39 EUR for 10ml (0.3 fl.oz.)
Later on I got a chance to try out Collistar Papaya nail polish on one of the Collistar promo events. Lovely creme orange nail polish.
I was hesitating between pink blush, green eyeshadow and Mint Milk, so I swatched blushes and eyeshadows at the store. I never intended to take photos of these products, but as they survived the way home … I don’t usually like “store swatches”, as I have nothing useful to tell you about items. Yes, they apply nicely with finger and blushes have shimmer in them, but that is it.
Eyeshadows – one layer, no base.
Do you have anything from Collistar Capri LE?
What would you buy if you had to pick one item?
