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
