The Summer 2012 collection from Revlon is called Summer Escapism, and we once again see Gucci Westman create a gorgeous, appropriate palette for the warmer weather. I spotted this palette when I was at the drugstore, ended up passing on it, and then went back to grab it because I really wanted to test out the colors. The shades in this palette remind me of a beach with the soft gray, blue, and brown. “Beach Beauty” is a beautiful array of shades that you can wear together or separately. I put together a quick look using the palette so you can see how the colors perform, as well. To see photographs, swatches, and my eye look using this new palette,
Beach Beauty is a palette containing five eyeshadow shades: black, soft grey, pearl white, soft turquoise, and a dark brown. What I love about this palette is that the array of shades reminds me of being at the seashore. When we first moved into our house almost five years ago, we didn’t decorate a lot of the rooms with any specific theme yet. When we got back from marrying in Hawaii, I had these gorgeous photographs of the beach and shoreline in Maui, and I was inspired to turn our downstairs powder room into a tropical oasis. I achieved the look with one of my favorite color combinations: turquoise and brown. The two colors complement each other beautifully and the effect is very spa-like. This palette has the same type of theme going on in it, and the effect is truly gorgeous on your eyes!
The shades are rich in color and silky soft. They weren’t overly powdery at all, which I was happy about.
The richest colors in the palette were the black and the shimmering dark brown.
The Look I Put Together:
- For this look, I applied the turquoise blue into the inner corners of my eyes, making sure they really popped. I applied the soft grey over my entire eyelid, and blended it out with the dark brown in the outer crease and corners of my eyes. I used the soft pearl white on my brow-bone for a highlight and then lined the outer half of my upper lash-line using the black. On the bottom lash-line, I applied some black eyeliner to the outer half. I wanted to keep the inner parts of the eyes really bright and reflective so that the turquoise showed up as a beautiful, luminous highlight. The end result is a gradient of seashore-like colors!
Overall: The Revlon “Beach Beauty” Palette has a beautiful array of shades that work together seamlessly. The palette is perfectly named since the colors are reminiscent of being at the beach. The colors are soft but bright!
