Jennifer Bradley, Fresh & Bold Colors for Summer!
by Sian Bitner Kearney
Judging from the looks of my hair lately, I’d have to say that summer is definitely here! While I try to make every effort to look my best as the temperatures rise, I must admit that the feeling of heavy makeup sliding down my face makes me want to cringe about as much as a 90% humidity weather report. Thankfully, celebrity makeup artist Jennifer Bradley and her new line for summer are here to save the day!
I was sent two different products to review for the Jennifer Bradley line; Bombshell Signature Eye Duo in “Siren”, a soft peach highlight color matched with a bold/smoky blue, and Lipshine lipstick in the shade “Secret”, a light pink with tons of shimmer. In addition to giving my two cents on the colors, I also decided to put the products through two of my toughest tests; a super late night out with the girls and sitting through my son’s 90 minute lacrosse game in almost 90 degree heat! Here’s the 411…
Bombshell Signature Eye Duo in “Siren”: At first I was unsure that these two shades would really compliment each other on the eye; however, once I slipped them on my lid I found that they were actually quite pretty. My eyes are admittedly strange, well the color is at least. Depending on what I’m wearing and the makeup I choose, my eyes can change from grey to green and dark blue to sky blue. These shades brought out the deepest blue in my eyes; an effect I must say that was quite pleasing. As far as holding power, the duo stood the test of both days with minimal creasing or fading.
Lipshine Lipstick in “Secret”: To begin, the feel of this lipstick is fantastic! It left my lips super moisturized and while the color itself did fade after I ate and drank something, the shimmer stayed all night. The color was a bit lighter than what I would usually wear, but it’s definitely a great shade for any fair skinned beauty. Overall, I would recommend these new products to any gal looking for some summertime shimmer without that makeup mask feel. The products are light, long wearing, and the colors seem to have just a touch of romantic appeal; and hey, isn’t that what summer’s all about?
