Let me start with saying that I absolutely LOVE coffee! Like crazy! Can you imagine how happy I was when I got my hands on Collistar’s winter collection Collezione Caffè?
Yes it is exactly was it sounds like! An Italian coffee giant Illy joined forces with Collistar, leader in perfumery and cosmetics, to create a limited collection inspired by all those shades of coffee. I learned that this collaboration is part of the Tio Amo Project where Collistar collaborates with different Italian brands to highlight their excellency and Italian roots.
The collection consists of a Sculpting Effect Tanning Powder which is an absolute life saver during winter months for me. My skin is very light so a bit of natural tan is a must. Good thing about this powder is that it can be used for both, sculpting and tanning effect.
Then there is a Caffè Fredo palette with 4 eyeshadows in different textures inspired by Italian coffees from dark espresso and mocha to creamy cappuccino and latte. For a blonde with blue eyes, coffee shades are basically all I need when it comes to make-up. Both powder and eyeshadows are in packed in these cute round packages with mirror. Eyeshadow palette also has 2 applicators inside it.
To complete the look there is PURE lipstick in this intense red colour with Vitamin E, moisturizing and anti-aging effect. I usually prefer natural lipsticks but you know, sometimes a red lipstick can add that bit of shine you didn’t even know you need. There also is a Professional liquid eye-liner in dark brown for that perfect line that doesn’t smudge and lasts all day. Now all I have to do is learn how to do the line lol.
If you follow my INSTA stories you probably know I am constantly on the go. Sometimes I’m going from a meeting to a meeting all day long. It’s important for me to always look fresh so a bit of tanning powder and little eyeshadow will do the trick.
