I feel I can safely say that pink is the hot color for spring 2009. And if it isn’t pink then it is coral. Prescriptives managed to use both of these hot shades for their spring look thinking about the cool and warm undertones of their customers. Just like the name says, In Bloom, this collection is inspired by pretty blooming flowers. The collection isn’t very “exciting” or original as far as inspiration goes because we all think of flowers when we think of spring. But, they are nice and it is nice to have a little bit of color after months of gloom.

EYES: There are 4 new Eye Color Duos. They come in a pretty pink and coral package. All are inspired by bold blooms. There is Sunflower for the Y/O gals ( I believe the most common undertone). It is a flattering shimmery beige and bronze that will really make blue eyes pop. There is Marigold for R/O. It is a warm, coraly pink duo shimmer. There is Petunia for R. It has a soft pink and reddish, coppery hard to explain shade. And there is Lily for the B/R group. It is a pretty soft pink and lavender shimmer. I think it is what the model above is wearing. I bet it would look awesome on hazel or green eyes. All of the duos retail for $24. Two Perfect Every Line Gel Eyeliner has been relaunched in Cocoa and Eggplant. These retail for $17.50 and are a really nice product. Two Softlining Eye Pencils have been relaunched in Jet (black) and Cocoa. These retail for $17.50.

LIPS: There are 4 new Lipshine glossy lipsticks. There is Zinnia for Y/O. It is a sheer and shiny coral. There is Posy for R/0 and it is a sheer warm hot pink. There is Tulip for R and it is a sheer blue raspberry. There is Tuberose for B/R and it is a sheer and lovely soft rose. These retail for $17.50 and create a perfect and effortless, one step pout.

FACE: There are 2 Cheek Color Duos. They are powders with two shades and they come in the same compact as the eyeshadows but they have a pretty flower imprint. There is one for warm skins with two shimmery shades or coral and one for cool skins with two pretty pink shimmer shades. These retail for $24.

Overall the collection is “fresh” and I do really like the Lipshines because they are so easy to wear. They are very “work” and “weekend” friendly. The eyeshadows blushes are OK but they don’t blow my mind. I do like numerous options becaues right now my hair is dyed red and these pinks aren’t always so friendly. At least I have a coral option.
