The Color of Spring

Last week I had the honor of being guest blogger for the Color Association of the United States and my post was about- what else… lipstick!  It included mention of the legendary Coco Pink, touched on my personal love of hot pink in general and noted my overwhelming joy that luscious blue-pinks are all the rage this Spring. However, since I didn’t get around to mentioning products in this category, I am inspired to follow up now with some fabulous choices.

Nothing says sweet like a pinky cheek that leans to the blue side and shown here are two of my favorites.  ”Pink Hyacinth” Watercolor from Three Custom Color has a balmy texture for instant inner glow and Lorac’s Baked Matte Satin Blush in “Flaunt” has just the right amount of silky sheen for a soft and sexy highlight.  For lips, nothing but full intensity works for me and these shades suit my ever changing moods.  From left to right they are “Bora Bora” from Three Custom Color, Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Intense “36″, Maybelline Color Sensational “Fuchsia Fever” 140 and Sephora’s Lip Attitude in  GO8.   Okay, so that last one is not HOT pink, but it deserves special mention because this lovely “lilac-pink” is one of my absolute favorites. Not just for the color, but also for the juicy texture and it’s the closest I’ll ever  come to wearing nude!

Crystal Climbers

This is the what started it all for me.   Crystal Climbers was a building toy with various shapes and colors of plexiglass and it was my favorite as a child.  I just loved how the light would shine through two pieces crossed over each other and seeing the new color that was made.  Imagine my delight when on a visit to my parents’ house, I came across my set in the attic.   It was like seeing a long lost beloved friend who also happens to fit in your luggage so you can take them back to New York with you.  Now, we are happily reunited!
