To say that I was happy to see the Caryl Baker Limited Edition Spring 2016 Bloom Colour Collection pop up on my doorstep was an understatement!
Caryl Baker Limited Edition Spring 2016 Bloom Colour Collection
I adore, simply ADORE the Canadian brand of skincare and makeup, so YEEHAW this Beauty Blogger was as happy as hearing her favourite Zumba song play while working out haha! And in case you wanted to know, it’s Corazon Acelerao by Los Vaqueros: La Trilogia-it’s an amazing blend of traditional music and latin hip hop, and it’s so much fun to dance to!
There’s some skincare in the Caryl Baker Limited Edition Spring 2016 Bloom Colour Collection too, but today let’s focus on colour, because DANG…I love winter…but Spring makeup collections are my absolute FAVOURITE. I just melt like the snow when I see the gorgeous pastel colours, and want everything I see!
“Spring is synonymous with romance, a time for fresh feminine looks that are as easy to create as they are to wear. Lightly brush a wash of petal-coloured shadow in soft yellow Buttercup or peachy Tulip all over the eye to naturally flatter,” says Caryl Baker Visage National Face Expert, Anna Koniaris.
But the Caryl Baker Limited Edition Spring 2016 Bloom Colour Collection has kind of satisfied that Spring Makeup craving because the colours are just so pretty and ethereal, and dudes-I need nothing else. DONE.
Now there are eight eyeshadows($18 each) in the collection, but I have three: HYDRANGEA which is a soft sea green-blue with gold with a pearlescent finish; SWEET PEA, a pinky peach with a metallic finish; BUTTERCUP is a light buttercream shade with a matte finish. Caryl Baker Eyeshadows are amazing if you have aging eyes like me because they’re made with Orchid Flower Extract which is an emollient anti-oxidant that helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. AND they are Paraben, Gluten free AND Vegan too. 🙂
The shadows are beautiful and easy to blend. My fave is definitely Hydrangea-it’s the PERFECT Spring eyeshadow. Sweet Pea could be slightly more pigmented if I’m being picky, but it’s still great. LOVE them all.
There are two blushes in the collection, and I have ROSE GARDEN($22.50), a Pearlescent cool pink which is SO PRETTY on the cheeks. Her blushes are a triple-milled, highly-pigmented fine powder that blends like a DREAM.
MORNING DEW Lipstick($18) is a rosy pink, cream finish that’s perfect! I love Caryl Baker Lipsticks-they’re pigmented, and kind of a good classic formula-not too creamy, not too drying. They are comfy on the lips and last FOREVER. FREESIA Lip Gloss($18)is a bright pink with a semi-matte finish and it’s so good. Nicely pigmented, not drying and not sticky at all.
The Limited Edition Caryl Baker Spring 2016 BLOOM Colour Collection is available beginning March 21, 2016 at Caryl Baker Visage Face Spas, Ontario and Alberta and at www.carylbakervisage.com.
Magnolia & Willow eyeshadow and Sunrise & Pebble lipstick shades will become part of the core collection.
