Silk Naturals Valentine's Day 2013 Collection

Let’s check out what Karen has in store for us this year!

Silk Naturals Valentine's Day Silk Naturals Valentine's Day

Silk Naturals Valentine's Day

Cameo is a nude pink with just the barest hint of shimmer if you look really closely, but it’s essentially matte.

Chrome looks like brushed chrome- like a piece of aluminum foil.  It’s a true metallic and derives its color from aluminum.

Exposed is a lighish tan matte- it’s a true nude, and pretty much blends with lighter skin tones.

Goddess is our clone of Urban Decay’s Venus.  It’s a creamy subdued pearl with great coverage, and a bit of refinement from some matte tones.

Latent is a creamy light matte taupe tone.  Great as a lid color, or even as a light crease color.  It’s our clone of Urban Decay’s Naked 2 from the Naked Basics palette.

Selenium is a deep matte charcoal color with hints of aqua, and neutralized with just a hint of brown.  It’s great for pairing with neutrals for a refined but never boring look, and wonderful for accenting blues.

Sepia is a taupe with just a hint of red and a little bit of shimmer.  It pairs well with Cameo, or it could be a great kicked-up neutral crease color.

Silhouette is a matte very neutral charcoal brown.  It’s deeper and grayer than Mousse, and lighter than Bassalt.

Silk Naturals Lipstick Swatches

Candid is a medium sheer cool pink with tiny silvery glimmer.

Fast is a full coverage cool toned pink with just enough purple to keep it from looking too “bubble gum”.

Infinity is a sheerish milky coral that’s perfect for adding a sweet but not too bright pop of color.  We’re calling this coral, but it’s fairly neutral, and should look great on most folks.  It has a wonderful vanilla almost cupcake flavor.

Reflect is a base of pink gloss with lots of golden, and a few multi-color sparkles.  On your lips it’s pretty much a light neutral.  Great for highlighting a pout, or as a classy nude.

Shutter is a reddish peach tone with a hint of shimmer.

Zone is a lightish semi-sheer nude with just a hint of pink, and a cream finish (no sparkle).

Perfumes

 

I think this is new for Silk Naturals! They released 5 rollerball scents.

Baby Kisses has top notes of light citrus, white tea, backed with some sweet fruits, a hint of musk and a hint of floral.  It’s light, slightly sweet and clean.

Buttercream smells just like a delicious vanilla cupcake!

Confection is sweet, and a little bit tart.  It’s juicy pomegranate combined with a sweet black currant and freshened by a little bit of citrus zest, and leafy greens.

Saucy is a blend of black amber, cardomom lightened with a hint of tangerine.  It’s sensual, and deep lightened with a bit of spice and citrus.

Stark Night Whew!  This one is sexy- half Drakkar Noir (type), and half Cool Water (type)- it’s clean, sexy, and very very manly.

Lip Balms

Did you know that applying caffeine to your skin is the fastest way to get it into your blood stream?  Each tube of Recharge contains approximately 60 mg of caffeine. It’s not going to keep you awake for hours on end, but it will get you going until the coffee has brewed, or a nice pick-me-up.

Ingredients:  Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Avocado Oil, Beeswax, Flavor, Mica, Caffeine, Stevia

BuzzBerry – Sweet juicy peaches, and sugared strawberries combine to make a scrumptious lip balm.

Chai – Sweet, creamy, and a little spicy- warm and comforting like a nice cup of chai.

Cola – Sweet, fizzy, and a great pick-me-up!

Jumpstart – Jumpstart is a deep dark espresso flavor with just a little bit of sweetener.

Red Velvet Cake – There are days when ONLY chocolate cake will do, and this is the perfect no-calorie panacea to a rough day.  Red Velvet cake- rich and chocolaty with hints of vanilla, and a light cream cheese frosting.  Mmmm…

My Initial Thoughts on the New Release
Eyeshadows – I’m most interested in Selenium and Chrome eyeshadows! I also want to see how the UD clones compare to the shades that I have. Exposed (aka Walk of Shame) is a favorite of mine.

Colored Lip Products – I think Infinity and Fast look like shades I’ll fall in love with.

Perfume – I’m intrigued by Confection and Saucy.

Caffeinated Lip Balms – I’m all about BuzzBerry and Red Velvet Cake! Yum!

I was surprised to not see a blush or two thrown in.

      I hope exposed and latent are cool-toned enough; they appear a bit warm in the swatch pic. Those types of colors are everyday staples for me. I think chrome really steals the spotlight! (Not that I need another silver shadow…) I’d like to try Cameo, Sepia, and Doubloons!

      Darn it! I told myself I wasn’t going to order, and I think I’m going to have to…I can’t resist those roller ball perfumes!

      Chrome is the clear standout for me, might have to make my first Silk Naturals purchase!
