Ever looked at an eyeshadow palette or nail polish shade and morphed it into delicious confectionery in your head? Same here! The majority of high-end and high-street make-up treats from the likes of Benefit and Too Faced are designed to exude the “good enough to eat” sensation to tempt beauty addicts into splurging on a new eyeshadow collection, lipgloss or nail polish coffret.
Ornate presentation inside bespoke packaging secures continuous popular demand for products such as…
Yes, we thought this motley crew of wearable neutrals for the eyes was a bar of Cadbury’s from the front, then we took off the wrapper and revealed it’s limitless eye-contouring capabilities and ability to create a natural looking smoky eye.
You’d be forgiven for mistaking Bourjois Delice De Poudre (Bronzing Powder), £7.99, Boots, for a bar of chocolate! With an ultra soft texture, you can have a natural looking glow minus the calories!
Last year OPI created the ultimate cool summer collection with their Coca Cola range of edgy, popping colours, each inspired by a popular fizzy can.
This has to be my favourite collection from OPI, with it’s gorgeous signature red (Coca Cola Red) and the ultimate silver (My Signature Is DC/Turn On The Haute Light).
Benefit Georgia blush, (£23.50, Boots/Debenhams/www.asos.com),
Just a dust of this suits-all powder across the apples of your cheeks will awaken a warm, healthy glow. This peaches-and cream complexion enhancer is often a sell-out on the Benefit Cosmetics web-site, but hey, who can resist a blusher resembling peaches and cream!
L’oreal Paris Glam Shine Miss Candy, which Boots and Superdrug ceased to sell, however you can still get your sugar fix at http://www.directcosmetics.com for a sweeter price! How could they discontinue these! Delicious swirls of shimmering, sugar-coated goodness for truly kissable pout perfection, from pretty pastels to bubble gum brights, you’ll be tempted by more than just one shade.
