Some items from The Shanghai Collection by Gucci Westman For Revlon Fall 2012
Here we go again with another fall collection. The Shanghai Collection by Gucci Westman for Revlon Fall 2012 is “inspired by the romantic films of China, where women adorn ultra-feminine wardrobes of vibrant cheongsam dresses with saturated colours.”
Revlon Cream Eye Shadow Palette in Midnight Express ($12.95) is a limited edition palette. It contains golden green, silver, black, bronzed gold, pearly white and sparkly purple cream eyeshadows. These sheer eyeshadows never set to a powder finish, which are problematic for people (like me!) who have oily eyelids. I suggest using a primer underneath, then layer on the cream eyeshadows, and then layer a matching powder eyeshadow on top. Those who like the “lived in” eyeshadow look or have never had problems with their eyeshadow creasing can wear these alone. For me this is too much work, so I’ll have to skip this one.
