Quick make-up intermezzo: Neve Quetzalcoatl summer 2014

Neve Cosmetics Quetzalcoatl limited edition mineral makeup collection spring/summer has arrived! And I’ve received it unexpectedly these days in my mailbox. Yaay! I immediately felt in love with them and so wanted to share with you this quick post and my impressions. And yes, I know you wait for the 2nd part of my Iherb shopping, which is coming very soon too 😉

So here are some colours from this collection: the new mineral blush Flame tree in a vibrant coral with many metallic tonalities.

The 2 eyeshadows: one is Peyote; metallic white with a huge metallic lime undertone and the other is Rituale; a metallic duo chrome violet blue. However the first one is the most shimmery one, because it has bigger metallic lime green particles in it.

Btw, I see that this collection is inspired by some shamanic rituals and so the names are so creative. Comparing the pigmentation of products I can see that the most pigmented is the blush and the less pigmented was the Rituale, although with a primer it’s fine.

The pencils Pastello (that I adore and think of collecting them cause they remind me of school color pencils) in turquoise matte blue and the other metallic warm bronzy brown. They are both mesmerising, I just suggest to wear them very smudged, or as a base for eyeshadow or set them with powder because they tend to smear a little bit especially in warm days when it’s hot.

Hope you like it and enjoy my photos as I did. I was so charmed by this special light here in Milano that I decided to put the products directly out on the sun. So, the pictures are taken all on daylight and you can see the play of light, shadow and color which I find so fascinating 🙂

You can see the entire collection which consists of another blush and 2 additional eyeshadows in brown and green on Neve cosmetics website. Enjoy the summer and its colours 😉
