Bleached Neons

Saturday, June 7, 2014

I love, love, love the idea of bleached neon colors. That's why I was so excited when Maybelline released their Bleached Neons collection for the summer season.

I was in Walgreens the other day, and happened to see the display for these. I'd actually been looking for them since May, around when I was graduating, but they didn't have them near my college town yet. I'd heard great things about the products, along with the tutorials with them that I'd already seen on YouTube, so I was excited to finally check them out for myself.

So, here's what I picked up.

Nail Polish

Left to right: Coral Heat, Bleached in Peach, and Day Glow Teal

The nail polish caught my eye immediately at the store (which isn't surprising, given my track record of loving bright colors and my obsession with nail painting in general). The shades are so pretty in person.

I was excited in particular about Bleached in Peach. This pale creamsicle orange shade has been circulating among some of the bleauty gurus I follow on YouTube, and I was glad that they had this shade in stock.

I haven't tried these yet, but I have a good feeling about them. I like Maybelline Color Show polishes, especially their metallics, so I bet these will behave in a similar fashion to the existing line.

Color Tattoo 24 Hr Eyeshadow

This collection has two new shades of the Color Tattoo eyeshadow, and the one I picked up is called Shimmering Sea. The best way I can describe it is that it's a muted blue with gold duochrome.

The wear of this shadow is fantastic. I wore it yesterday, and it managed to last the entire day with little to no creasing (I used Urban Decay primer potion in Eden underneath).

The color is also gorgeous. I was a little nervous about wearing blue eyeshadow - I hadn't really worn a bright blue since high school - but it's such a versatile and wearable color and it looks great on. I think this will be a great color to throw on by itself, or layered under colors for special occasion/party looks.

Color Elixir

There were quite a few shades that were released for this collection, but the one that caught my eye was I'm Blushing. It's a sheer candy pink that's amazing as an everyday shade.

This wears great, too. I have to blend the color some if my lips are drier, but other than that, I have no complaints.

Have you seen the Bleached Neons collection? Have you tried any of the new shades? What do you think?
