Do you all like sugar as much as I do? What a fib...nobody could possibly like sugar as much as I do! I am a moderately ashamed sugar addict. I should be more ashamed than I am, but that would only depress me and cause me to stress eat more sugar. What a dilemma. Fortunately, I have a sweet offering today without the calories and ensuing guilt complex! :P Rimmel London has released a limited edition texture collection called Sweetie Crush, a yummy set of pastels. I will say up front that all the colors were pretty sheer, and I used 3 coats of each.
First is Sherbet Sweetheart, a pale yellow. This was a surprise favorite for me. Could it be because it looks like butter cream frosting? Hmmm...
Next is a gorgeous blue called Blueberry Whizz. It's a true pale blue...no aqua undertones. The sheen gives this one a blue fairy look. :)
The pink (!!!) of the Sweetie Crush collection is called Candyfloss Cutie. Let me just say that the British have the most adorable name ever for cotton candy. Come on...isn't it? :) Candyfloss Cutie is a light pink with the *tiniest* touch of rose, but not enough for it to appear indecisive and annoying.
Ahhh, pale green texture! And such an unusual color at that. I wore Fizzy Applelicious to the office today, and it's such a pale color that you have to look closely to see it's green. It's pretty though and looks a bit like a neutral.
Violet Swizzle...what can I say about this lavender except that it's beautiful?? :) This is actually very pale too, paler than the photos show. Springy and girly.
The Sweetie Crush collection bottles are small at .27 oz., but I paid a whopping $1.29 a bottle for each. I found these at Kmart and have not seen them anywhere else. I like their pale, ethereal colors and their silvery sheen. As far as the texture goes, I would say they are somewhere between Zoya Pixie Dust and Julie G Gumdrops.
Have you seen the Sweetie Crush collection around? I would have to say my favorite is Blueberry Whizz. :)
Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day! <3
These are pretty! I actually quite like this collection and might have to pick up a few of them if I see them around.ReplyDelete
They are pretty, and they're so cheap it won't break the bank! :)Delete
I think so too! :)Delete
Fred Meyer has these, too! I'm actually rather fascinated by the green one, and Candyfloss Cutie is calling my name because I'm in love with all things pink at the moment. These all look akin to a certain pink OPI texture from last year's Bond Girls collection. It's a finish that doesn't seem to be used as often but it's obviously super pretty! And I agree Candyfloss is a great name :) Also, buttercream frosting... That one looks like the same tone as that one Zoyer but better because no brushstrokes :) And also, sparkly :) Mmmmm, frosting....ReplyDelete
Oh, and I love the collage!!Delete
I think you'd like the green one. It's like a pale celery...just a touch of yellow. I was very impressed with these for the price, and I really love the finish. Yes, Sherbet Sweetheart did remind me of Zoya Brooklyn, sans brushstrokes. :) Oh, and PicMonkey and I say thank you! <3Delete
Hi Melissa, What? Celery? In a sugar collection? I'd rather say apple sorbet (quite en vogue here)! It is my favorite too, next to the lilac! I love the combination of pastel and sparkle - one can add as much bling as possible ans it just never looks over the top - beautiful swatches, great post!!! <3ReplyDelete
You're so right...apple sorbet sounds so much nicer than celery. :P Wow, that sounds incredible! But, I digress...the green is a very pale and pleasant color. The lavender is another favorite of mine. <3 You know what? You're right about blingy pastels...they always look appropriate. Of course, if I want some vampy sparkly, who cares?? LOL!Delete
I have yet to run into any of these but the adorable names and darling packaging make want WANT THEM! I wonder if Ulta has them? All of the K Marts around me are closing down and going out of business ( pish posh, I know ) but I never really shopped there so I'm not going to be missing much. All of these are so cute and I need!ReplyDelete
Isn't the bottle so cute?? I actually saw these over the weekend at either Walgreens or Rite Aid...I don't remember which? They were more than $1.29 a bottle though...something like $2.29. They do have an unusual finish on them.Delete
