New for fall 2016, jane iredale’s Fashion Forward collection is a chic new range that’s designed to bring out a naturally bold and strong, sexy look for eyes, brows and lips. The Fashion Forward Collection includes the new Smooth Affair® for Eyes which are cream-to-powder eye colors, an ultra-precise Retractable Brow Pencil with built-in spoolie for fierce brow definition, and a classic red lipstick formulated with nourishing ingredients.
Today I have five shades of the new Smooth Affair for Eyes to show you….take a look!
Smooth Affair for Eyes ($32 each) is described as a versatile cream-to-powder formula that can be worn as an eye shadow or as a primer for any other shadow. These are formulated with coco glycerides and mineral powders for a luminous smudge-proof, crease-proof finish. Available in six creamy sheer shades:
Petal – sheer pink
Lemon – matte sheer yellow
Naked – sheer, cool-toned nude
Iced Brown – sheer golden brown
Canvas – warm sheer champagne
Gold – sheer rich gold
These cream eye colors are sheer indeed, with a soft shimmery sheen. On the eyes, you won’t see much shimmer, but rather an iridescence. They have a really soft, buttery-smooth creamy texture that glides on easily. When used alone as an eyeshadow, I didn’t find the formula to be totally crease-proof and it doesn’t last very long on my eyes which was disappointing as I love the colors on their own…especially the shades Canvas and Petal. Petal adds a pretty pop of sheer pink that’s great for a natural/daytime look and brightens the eyes!
However, when I use any of these as a base to layer my other eyeshadows on top, they do help enhance the color vibrancy of darker shades and make them last longer too. A little goes a long way though so just apply a thin layer to avoid any creasing issues! Swatched below are shades: Naked, Gold, Iced Brown, Canvas and Petal. Please note that I swatched them heavily here in the photos to show you the colors but they go sheer on eyes.
The jane iredale PureMoist Lipstick in Cindy ($25) is a classic red name after the iconic beauty, Cindy Crawford. The formula is infused with Moringa Oil that nourishes lips with Vitamins A & C, while Coffee Seed Extract infuses with even more antioxidant protection. Plus, it also contains ultra-moisturizing avocado and sunflower seed oils to keep your lips conditioned and quenched.
Cindy is a beautiful, vibrant red with a satin finish. It’s a rich, highly pigmented lipstick that would look fab on just about everyone! The lightweight, creamy formula goes on super smooth with a great color payoff and is fairly long-lasting with an average wear time of 3-4 hours. Here’s a swatch:
