I know, I know – Summer is pretty much over (although I’m writing this from Sunny Wales, where it certainly didn’t feel like Summer is done quite yet!) but despite that fact and that this post is long overdue I wanted to give this gorgeous collection a bit of a shout out as there are some gems in here that are great year-round, not just in the warmer months. Plus a few great ones for keeping a Summer glow a little longer.
This ‘Colour in Paradise’ collection is all about the typical Summer shades – bright corals, fresh turquoises and perky pink cheeks. All topped off with some lashes that will withstand heat and a bronzer that will make you look like you have a healthy glow.
My top picks from the collection for Summer into Autumn are:
The blusher – a gorgeous rosy pink that’s fresh and summery at the same time as being a little like that pinky cheeked, slightly windswept feeling of a walk on a cold Autumn day.
The Sheer Temptation Lipstick in Blooming Pink – these are sheer lipsticks, so great if you want a wash of colour without the ‘eek’ factor. They’re amazingly hydrating so feel lovely to wear – more like tinted balms than proper full-on lipsticks. But the colour payoff is still impressive and can be layered if you want more colour. I’m loving hot pink as a colour to carry from Summer into Autumn, so this is a top pick for me.
Stay Perfect Nail Colours in Hot Lava and Paradise Love – both totally Summer colours but not ones I want to leave behind with the bikinis and the suncream just yet. Hot Lava is a nice transitional colour and I think Paradise Love would look really interesting over a grey base, to sort of tone down the colour and sparkle but give it a bit of an interest.
