I love it when you discover an eye or lip palette that contains more than one colour you would actually use. SUCH a rarity. But it does happen. Proof: the new Almay Intense i-Color™ Collection has just landed on my desk and I find myself rather taken with the Trio for Blues Eyeshadow palette. Granted, I'm breaking a few thousand beauty rules as I don't have eyes like Frank, but blue eyes, schmue eyes—I like it, I'm wearing it.
Now, I am undoing Almay's very hard work of carefully coordinating several shades that play up your eye colour, but it's just not fair for the blue-eyed girls to have all the fun. I feel a tanty coming on.
So what's gotten me all in a flutter? Well, there's the pearly pink highlight for one. Divine. Not to mention two of the most-universally flattering shades known to man: navy blue and metallic gunmetal; both of which feature light-reflecting particles (the navy is more sheen than shimmer) that will knock your socks off. While the applicator is a bit flimsy, with the perfect brush, this palette will zoom its way to poll position, methinks. LOVE.
The Almay Intense i-Color™ Collection is available from April.
