Experimenting with color is one of my favorite aspects of playing with new makeup and creating a fresh, new look. Recently, I had the opportunity to test eyeshadow from the PLAY Collection, the newest collection from beautyADDICTS. The shade is called Yacht Club, a shimmering navy hue, which includes super fine, crushed pearls to create a radiant look.
The first thing I noticed when using the eyeshadow was its smooth application. The first time I used the shadow I created a navy smokey eye using the deep navy shade blended with a deep bronze shadow and gray shadows. The blue really enhanced my eye color and gave a softer look that a gray/black smokey eye would create. The second time I used the shadow was for a day out on my friend’s boat. It seemed appropriate since the shadow is named “Yacht Club.” The long lasting formula made it from early morning to sunset. On this day, I dipped an eyeliner brush in water and then applied the shadow as eyeliner. The color came out much more vibrant thanks to the damp eyeliner brush and lasted all day.
The full PLAY Collection from beautyADDICTS is comprised of four eyeshadows, two lipsticks, two lip glosses and one eye liner color. The color combinations are really lovely and look fantastic as a collection. The eyeshadow line also includes an Emerald shade, the Pantone color for 2013, which I am dying to try next. The full eyeshadow collection consists of: a green ("Emerald City"), a light teal ("Crème de Mint"), a vintage pink ("Eye Candy") and a dark blue/navy ("Yacht Club"). All of which can be purchased at www.beautyaddicts.com.
Have fun playing with color and remember to experiment by using a damp brush and blending with other shadows!...
