Last night Makeup Forever launched their new Flash Color Pro Palette with new individual shades. The palette is nice with some nice pastel shades. I can see this being great as a lip and cheek palette as well as some body art. I don’t own the original flash palette but it has been on my wishlist for quite some time for my kit. Playing with the palette, old and new, these cream colors are so vibrant and so smooth. I really liked the feel of these. They were not sticky or tacky and they weren’t dry.I can see these used on photo shoots or for fashion shows because they are fabulous for multi-tasking. These may be used anywhere on the face and body. There are exceptions as to what may be used on eyes(for example, red because it can stain) but I have seen artists use them anyways. Advice is to use a primer and don’t get them in your eyes(i.e. the lash lines). You can buy the shades in pots, in a stick, as refills to customize and pop them in a palette, or buy the 2 pre-made palettes. There are quite a few new shades added to the flash color collection. All of them so lovely!
Here are a few pictures of the new shades and swatches from the individual pots I took at the event. I will do a review for the shades I got once I play around with them.
***Now for an exclusive (well not really but I was pretty excited about it and I didn’t know about this until last night): I got to play around and get some pictures(not great pictures) of the new Artisan brush Collection from Makeup Forever! I am super excited about these babies coming out in September because I am a huge fan of the brand but has always been disappointed in their selection of brushes. Not anymore! There are 76 ( YES 76) new brushes coming out In September 2013 at Sephora and Makeup Forever Boutiques and they are 5 years in the making. They are SO SOFT and they look so professional. There are a nice variety of face, eye, lip and artistic brushes and the design is look is sleek and beautiful. I love that the end of the each brush is designed so it may be used as a spatula AND to apply your false lashes. Brilliant!!!! The look and feel of these are just different-Luxurious- and I can’t wait for these to come out!
Here are some photos, not great but you get the point (I really should start taking my real camera to these events). I obviously couldn’t get close up pictures of all 76 brushes but I got close ups of a few. Enjoy!!
