In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Silk Naturals released Colors for a Cure 2011. They have 12 new (and re-released) eyeshadows and an all-new limited edition lip gloss. This post will feature Howl, Scream, Paranormal, Propinquity, Defenestrate, and Demon.
From L to R: Howl, Scream, and Paranormal...
From L to R: Propinquity, Defenestrate, and Demon...
Howl is a pale lavender color with blue highlights. In the jar, it looks like an ordinary light lavender shade, but the blue highlights make this one more complex and interesting.
Scream is a medium-deep purple with beautiful aqua highlights. Oh, I love this one! It has an Eyelight finish, which I adore.
Paranormal is a navy blue with a slight pearly sheen. It applies a little sheer, so for best results, use an eyeshadow primer to intensify the color. I bet this would look awesome over MAC Imaginary Paint Pot.
Propinquity is a light-medium plummy pink with golden highlights. This is just absolutely beautiful as a one-color wash! I am sooo glad this was re-released. I will definitely repurchase this one.
Defenestrate is a shimmery medium-deep plum with golden highlights. This shade looks amaaazing! Perfect with Propinquity of course.
Demon is a matte blackened brown with lots of red sparkles. You will definitely need a glitter glue of some sort (Stick 'Em, Pixie Epoxy, Too Faced, etc.) for this one. I think I'll try this one over MAC Idyllic Paint Pot later.
During the month of October, Silk Naturals will be donating $0.25 from the sale of each jar to the Susan Komen Foundation. None of these shades are limited edition, but if you purchase this month, you'll be supporting a great cause. My personal favorites here are Propinquity, Defenestrate, and Scream.
Are you getting any of these shades? What's on your wishlist?
