Hooray for color cosmetics! Frankie Rose Cosmetics, based in Los Angeles, is a new line of makeup and tools that just launched last month. This line was created by professional makeup artists who know what works with a focus on perfecting the basics needed for every cosmetics collection and happily they sent the BIZ several products to try. Here are few of my favorites for the season.
I love the Single Eyeshadows ($14). The packaging is great, it’s practical but feels luxurious at the same time. The shadows have a see-through top, always so nice so you can see the colors! The quality is top-notch, with a fantastic amount of pigment and a buttery texture.
Patina is a stunning copper shimmer that is a great lid or crease shade.
Lace is a gorgeous shimmery cream that makes a wonderful highlighter but I like it even better as a lid shade.
I am very, very impressed with Frankie Rose Cosmetics eyeshadows. The colors are gorgeous and they wear beautifully. Besides Patina and Lace there are 16 more single eyeshadow shades and I have to admit I want every single one of them.
The Frankie Rose Cosmetics Lipstick ($16) is beautiful. The packaging is chic with just enough heft to feel substantial without being too heavy. Pictured above is Apple Spice, a wonderful shade for cooler months. I never would have chosen this for myself, but it is a gorgeous shade that isn’t too brown or too orange. The lipstick is creamy and keeps lips moist thanks to the jojoba and canolin oils. There are 11 other stunning shades available.
The Lip Gloss ($16) definitely doesn’t disappoint. There are 12 shades, including Pearl, Sugar, Pressed Flower, Gala Pink, Cotton Shimmer, Raspberry Dazzle, Valentine, Sunset, Sangria, Crushes Berries, Winter Plum, and Tangerine. I am loving Sangria, the beautiful raspberry shade pictured above. Frankie Rose Lip Gloss is actually a combination of a lipstick and a gloss so it has beautiful pigmentation and lasting power. While it is billed as a cream lip gloss, it has shimmer so it makes lips look full and lush.
I absolutely adore the Sangria shade over my Apple Spice lipstick – who knew? It’s not a combination I would have thought of, but it totally works!
I am extremely impressed with Frankie Rose Cosmetics. This is a high quality line that has extremely affordable prices. I am so excited about it, I want to try everything!! You can find Frankie Rose Cosmetics online at: http://www.
