As part of their Spring 2011 collection, Silk Naturals recently released some new lip products. Of course, the addict in me couldn’t resist, so I ordered a few lippies. I also added Adorn so I could reach the $30 minimum order and request a free eyeshadow of my choice (Godiva).
Biscayne is this week’s gift with purchase, and they kindly included free samples of their new blushes Candie, Diablo, and Folly.
Doll is a vivid red-pink lip stain.
Gigi is a bright strawberry pink lip stain.
Crazy Love is a shimmery blue pink lipstick.
Showstopper is a shimmery bright fuchsia pink lip gloss.
Creampuff is a sheer rosy pink amplifying lip glaze with silver shimmer.
Electra is a sheer plummy pink amplifying lip glaze with copper and purple sparkles.

Candie is a very light pink blush with a touch of golden shimmer. It’s pretty sheer and barely showed up on my medium skin tone. I think those with lighter skin tones would like this best. Diablo is a bright orange-red that looks intimidating at first, but don’t let this shade scare you. If applied with a very light hand, it would look beautiful on most skintones. Folly is a lavender pink with a hint of shimmer. I think it would work on light to medium skin tones, but it may be ashy on deeper skin tones.
Overall, I think the lip stains are great. The colors (Doll and Gigi) are amazing and very long lasting. The amplifying lip glazes are nice too. There is a slight tingle, but the feeling goes away quickly. Creampuff and Electra go on quite sheer, and the shimmer particles have a tendency to settle into my lip lines a bit, but both colors are so beautiful! My personal favorites are Crazy Love and Showstopper. Such fabulous colors! Both of them are extremely moisturizing and give a very nice, glossy look when applied to lips. Last but not the least, the blushes are lovely, very spring-y, and certainly worth checking out.
Let me know if you’d like to see some lip swatches, and I’ll try to get them done today or tomorrow.
