I was looking at new beauty releases in Douglas at Bulgaria Mall, when I came across the new Amber Valletta makeup line. I have always liked Amber because she’s just so natural, and that’s what makes her truly beautiful. So, I got curious about her Capsule Collection for Douglas.
The Makeup Capsule Collection is made up of a few products for eyes, lips and cheeks with the only idea – to remain authentic while using them. And since I adore natural looks and products that are simple to use, I was hooked to try and recreate this easy makeup look inspired by Amber Valletta.
The Eyelight Cream Eyeshadow must be my favorite product of all in this capsule. It has a creamy texture, and is so easy to apply. It gives the eyes a delicate, slightly shimmering rose tone, which makes the eyes shine naturally. It gives the eyelids this nice wet look, which I really, really like.
The Spot-on Highlighter is also quite nice, as it has a delicate balsam texture in the form of a stick. It’s very discreet with buildable coverage. However, I personally feel there is no need to build it, but just lightly add radiant accents for a natural glow.
Cheeks are also given a beautiful natural blush with the Snapshot Blush Stick. I love its rosewood shade, because it’s very skin tone flattering, and adds a very subtle freshness to the face. The texture is also very easy to use and blend.
The Big Impression Lipstick Pencil features a seductive lip color. For me, it is more appropriate for the evenings as it’s very intense and has a rich pigmentation. But I have found a way to work it for the everyday by removing part of it with a napkin. However, the Snapshot Blush Stick can also be used for the lips to achieve the daily Amber kind-of-look.
The collection also features an Instant-Blur Compact Powder. It can be used alone or after make-up. It functions as a control to oil production for a long-lasting matte, silky smooth finish, and gives the previously applied make-up a longer hold. I’m not a fan of powders but this one I like because it’s very, very light and natural looking.
