The Neo Sci Fi collection and accompanying collections debuted today... early! Much anticipation for these babies dressed in orange!
**HIGHLIGHT OF THE COLLECTION**
-Naked Space: creamy mid tone nude peach.
Right up the alley of Bonus Beat and 1N lipglass. Those are some of my faves so it will be hauled! Gosh I hate buying lipglasses that are so similar!
-Pink Grapefruit: orange with gold pearl (repromote)
Hotness! Will haul! Great summery tropical punch shade... If you couldn't get with some of the Fafi lipstick shades like Strawbaby etc. this is a great alternative!
-Soft and Slow: mid tone creamy plum
Repromote that I wasn't as interested in... soft plum, nice.
-Supreme: bronze brown with white pearl
Oh Baby without the glitter. I'm a big Oh Baby fan so this will be hauled as well... such a metallic bronze in the tube. Hard not to like it.
-Sunsonic: white gold
Gel lipstick dupe, or whiter- eeps!
-Electro: bright orange
It's a lustre so it's a great color and wearable. Great compliment to pink grapefruit.
- Astral: mid tone brown with red pearl
Deep browns don't quite compliment me, so this was off my radar. I also favor a nude lip. I'm sure it would look great with Supreme lipglass.
-Sci-fi-delity: burnt red with gold pearl
This color was in the same class as Astral for me. I'll update tomorrow with a better opinion.
-Pleasureseeker: creamy peach glaze
I would say this was the little sister to Heatherette's Lollipop Lovin'; lighter and not as pigmented. Nice shade to go with it's accompanying lipglass.
-Magnetic fields: black brown with silver pearl
It is exactly what it sounds and looks like. Need another somewhat black shadow? (I don't.) Then this is it in pretty orange clothes!
-Femme Fi: frosty golden cream
-Evening Aura: frosty golden peach, veluxe pearl
Yes, a light pastel peach. Nice color to use with Expensive Pink
-Expensive Pink: pink with gold duochrome
One of my faves of the permanent line. A summery pink in that it plays up the golds and bronzes. A must have for MAC collectors and a great staple.
-Time and Space: Frosty copper
Copper? Not so much to me. It's in the family of a Woodwinked but interestingly enough, not as frosty. On me, it swatched almost like a bronze stain of sorts. Nice, not necessary.
Bronzer and Blush:
-Refined Golden: golden with soft pearl finish; repromote
It's all about the casing!
-Solar Riche: mid tone deep orange brown
Eek! Most oranges I shy away from, esp orange brown bronzer. Orange supposedly works on darker skintones... check it out!
-Spaced Out Blush: shimmery peach.
The blush version of evening aura. A nice light blush for paler skintones, an interesting highlight blush for medium skintones. I wouldn't recommend this for darker skintones, unless you can work this as a highlight also.
-X Rockes Blush: shimmery dirty mauve
Nice. Fits in the bronze landscape but bringing a berry mauve tone. A calmed down (no glitters) version of fab without as much red? A stretch, but just trying to evoke some images LOL. These blushes seem to have the a more refined velvety texture than those of last year's Summer collection.
*Nail Polishes- Trust all are hot! The goldish one, Metalist coming in last.
*Solar Bits from the other collection- meh. Grainy and inconsistant pigment and glitter. What if used wet....?
