stila | countless color pigments: lyric

How gorgeous is this color? Or how about the entire collection? I adore the packaging as well. The photo doesn't do it much justice, but the compact that it's contained in, is a neon pink/orange that absolutely compliments the encased shadow.

I've seen a few swatches of parts of the collections and never really thought about purchasing anything from it, until I was in Sephora the other night while picking up my much wanted Lancome Hypnose in the LE Alber Elbaz collection. I walked by the display and as beautifully colored as everything was, I wasn't sure if I'd be able to pull it off because my hair is currently red/pink/orange/yellow. Then I noticed this particular shade, lyric.

Much to my surprise after swatching it, the pigments were gorgeous and absolutely perfect for me. The colors aren't super saturated, but they're a nice, light, subtle touch of pinks, oranges and golds, that would work well with my hair color, skin tone and eye color. There is a nice golden sheen to the shadow, so they're not completely matte.

I picked this up for $29 CAD, which I think is a pretty good deal, considering it's 3 shades in one. Plus, you can create fantastic custom colors!

I haven't been wearing makeup a lot these days, but I have a feeling this may become my new favorite that will get be back into the swing of it.
