2014 Make Up For Ever Spring Makeup Collection - Arty Blossom (with swatches)

Beside summer, spring has got to be the most refreshing season with fun and fresh color collection - totally love the fresh and bright colors that wasn't too crazy. Still quite fun and bold but with a more gentle touch(lols)

This Spring, Make Up For Ever launched the Arty Blossom travel palette that contains fun and fresh colors!  You can simple step it up with the similar bold (brighter) base color to intensify the eyeshadows.

Make Up For Ever Arty Blossom Palette
Price : SD$75

This brand new travel palette is a collector’s edition that states its creativity. Printed on a “domed” label that adds brightness and volume, the iconic MAKE UP FOR EVER logo has been artily customized in springtime shades.

“The Arty Blossom palette is a manifesto for collaborative art,” says Dany. “We drew a lot of sketches featuring color filaments, like pencil strokes with a watercolor effect. It was a joint endeavor and everybody pitched in, which certainly fits the brand’s spontaneous spirit!” Another innovation is the eyeshadow formula. Proposed in six shades drawn from the palette, it was specially developed to obtain translucent color effects:

“The textures and shades in the palette come in an extraordinary new formula: the colors are pure but translucent, producing subtle dissolving effects. The new eyeshadows are less pigmented, which makes them easy to work with and more supple in terms of color results. They look great on the skin and play fabulously with the light. They are all very finely pearlized, which adds to ease of application and their gentle glow lights up the skin, bringing out the purity of the colors.” Dany states.

A new formula for strikingly sheer colors and textures:
  • The formula is easy to apply and has impeccable hold, fusing perfectly with the skin thanks to a sophisticated combination of spherical powders, micro-beads, ultralight esters and silicons.
  • The palette blossoms with strong, muted or subdued colors that can shift in intensity to make classic or abstract, subtle or artistic looks. They combine eight refreshing shades, six of which are new: the vibrant Gold Plum, the subtle Gold Beige, the springtime notes of Fresh Peach and Fresh Pink, the dazzling Gold Green and the must-have Pearly White. The two existing shades are Metallic Copper and Pearly Turquoise Blue.
  • Infinitely soft and silky, the texture can be endlessly layered. It is bright, satiny or shimmering depending on the shades and adds a veil of color to the eyelid that instantly captures the light.
  • To work the colors with subtle flair, the palette contains two professional brushes in synthetic fibers. The first is for make-up and precision work, such as applying eyeliner. The second can  be used to create modular effects, such as a halo on the eyelid, feathered colors or banana eyes.

Totally in love with all the Make Up For Ever Travel Palettes - they feel sturdy, compact and hold a good amount of shade for a various makeup looks. And the Arty Blossom is by far my fave one!!!

It comes with a brush featuring elastomer fibers implanted in a special twist design that gives coverage from the base to the tip, separating each lash and boosting the look with maximum volume.
