And it’s here!! Sephora + Pantone Collection of color of the year 2015 Marsala has just hit the stores and compared to the packaging of the previous years, they mean business with this launch.
Presented in chic gold casing complemented by the transparent marsala hued outer packaging, this collection is super pretty. And if you’ve been wondering how to rock marsala in your makeup looks, there’s plenty of inspiration in the promotional shots…
There are 8 items released with the collection and the textures and shades seem to be quite universal, in that, they’re sheer enough to complement light skin tones for a wash of color yet buildable to show up on the deeper darker skin tones.
MULTI FINISH EYE PALETTE
Get it HERE – $39-
Containing 24 eyeshadows with a great variety of matte, shimmer, pearl and glitter finishes, this palette has a good range of colors to create warm neutral looks yet add as much or little marsala as you feel comfortable with. The variety of different finishes also gives the flexibility to take your eye looks from casual everyday to shimmering glam. The eyeshadow pans are also deeper than the previous years containing more product.
SHIMMERING CHEEK TRIO
Get it HERE – $28-
This convenient trio palette has 2 powder blushes and 1 powder highlighter. It caters for all skin types with a soft peachy blush in the middle and a deeper marsala shade for the darker skin tones. The highlight is super pretty with just enough shimmer and it has a soft hue to work with the other two colors. Another plus about this palette is that you can layer all 3 shades to create great dimension on the cheeks
LAYERING LIP COLLECTION
Get it HERE – $28
This was the set that really caught my attention when Sephora sent me the pre-release photos. They reminded me so much of the Marc Jacobs chubby lipsticks. Featuring 4 nude/earthy lip colors laced with marsala undertones, these chubby lipsticks can be used individually or layered to achieve an ombre lip. With a sheer moisturising finish, this set would be make for an amazing gift for a loved one…if you can part with the prettiness of course :)
PURE MARSALA MATTE LIP CREME
Get it HERE – $18-
If you prefer a more opaque matte finish lip color, this lipstick is designed to give you a rich marsala pout without the drying effect of most matte lipsticks. Whether you dab a little amount for a stained look or layer it for a full effect, this color is gorgeous for any occasion.
COOLING MARSALA MULTI STICK
Get it HERE – $25
I don’t know if you guys ever tried a “cooling” creme product like this multi stick but it’s the strangest feeling ever. It literally cools the skin as you roll it over the cheeks and lips. Aveda had these cooling multi sticks and I had 2 shades which I used to death during warmer months. With a sheer lightweight texture, this stick contains nourishing coconut oil and caffeine to instantly cool and de-puff the skin. Being a multi-use product, you can layer this over the cheeks and lips for a hint of marsala.
MARSALA METAL SHINE LIQUID LINER
Get it HERE – $18-
I think this will be a popular product to incorporate marsala into eye makeup looks without having to get too creative with eyeshadows. With a metallic finish, this rich liquid liner will add a simple yet very effective pop of color to the eyes with a flicked line above the lashes.
BOLD MARSALA MASCARA & BROW HIGHLIGHTER
Get it HERE – $20-
Colored mascaras come and go but this is definitely a shade we haven’t seen much of over the years. Shades containing red undertones can be tricky to use on the lashes as there’s a fine line between looking chic and looking like you’ve been hit by allergies. I’ll leave the verdict to your personal tastes on the lashes but the picture shows how it looks as a tint on the brows.
Last of this collection is a Pro Angled Brush $39 which has soft fluffy bristles and a marsala colored handle. It can be used for blush, highlight and contour having an angled cut.
So here we are beauties…muchly anticipated Sephora+Pantone Marsala Collection is finally available…and just in time for Xmas too if you want to treat yourself or a loved one.
What do you guys think of the items featured in this collection? Any favorites? xx
