With warm weather on the way, we were ecstatic for the debut of Merle Norman’s new Color Collection. The cosmetics come in flattering hues that make our faces flawless. From creamy lipsticks to soft and subtle blushes, check out our thoughts in this Merle Norman 2014 Spring Collection review.
Nothing brings more attention to our faces than a luscious colored lip, and with shades to compliment all skin tones, the long-lasting lipsticks by Merle Norman are perfect. The Creamy Lipcolor Just Right says it all in the name: it is “just the right” shade of neutral with a hint of warm color. This lipstick is great for an everyday look, day or night. The Age Defying Lipcolor The One is a darker shade of pink that leaves an overall warm look. Lipsticks in pop colors are the latest trend and the Creamy Lipcolor Late Bloomer gives us a stunning coral highlight while remaining subtle and delicate, just like spring flowers. The lipsticks leave your lips feeling moisturized and refreshed.
While the three Lipcolors are fabulous, my favorite piece from the collection is the Lip Polish Confection. The sparkly pink gloss goes on smooth and leaves my lips feeling kissable and shiny. You can wear the Lip Polish over lipstick or by itself—either way your luscious lips look dazzling. I topped the Late Bloomer lipstick with a coat of Confection for a glossy finish and loved the romantic look of the lip duo.
The Age Defying Eyeliner Charcoal is lighter than the typical black eyeliner, but still gives you intense and sexy eyes. The long-lasting and defining eyeliner also features a smudger to help intensify the dramatic look.
The Lasting Cheek Color Fancy Free is a great way to add some color to your winter skin. With a light shimmer, the soft pink blush is a perfect shade to top off the newly warm weather glow. The light-weight and oil-free blush looks immaculate and is an excellent tool to help contour cheekbones.
The great thing about Merle Norman cosmetics is that the products are long-lasting and dermatologist tested. The collection ranges from $14 to $20 and is available to purchase at one of their studios located in the United States, Canada, and globally. Make sure you get your hands on these limited colors before they run out! BY TATIANA STEC
