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…
Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Palette, £39.00, Debenhams:
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.
