When I checked out the Chanel Cote D’Azur summer collection earlier this week, its vibrant shades of red, orange, pink and bronze Aqualumiere Glosses made my lipgloss-lovin’ heart skip a few beats. I loved all the colors, but one shade stood out from the rest — a shimmery orange shade called Tangerine Dream.
Like a fiery Hawaiian sunset in the tube, she applies as a semi-sheer orange with shimmery golden flecks on the lips.
If you like peach, coral or gold lipsticks, you may also like Tangerine Dream. I think she plays nicely with other shades in those families.
This morning I wanted to pretend it was summer, so I tried a summery lip with Tangerine Dream above a layer Benefit’s Gilded Pencil.

And I think it’s a combo that’d work well with a coral blush like Benefit Coralista on the cheeks.
For the eyes, I might wear something green (in honor of St. Patrick’s Day), like two products from the upcoming MAC Sugarsweet collection, Aquavert Eyeshadow and Cakeshop Shadestick.
Speaking of MAC Sugarsweet, there’s a lipstick in the release called Lollipop Loving. It’s a shimmery peach with green and golden pearl. I thought she might work with Tangerine Dream and gave her a try.

To go with this a lip look like this, I might use either a coral or peach blush on the cheeks, maybe something like Benefit Coralista, MAC Pinch O’ Peach or MAC Peaches, finishing up with a peachy bronze eyeshadow like MAC Amber Lights.

Spring’s around the corner!
It’s a week away, right? Wow, I can hardly wait!
What are you up to today? Did you catch Terminator: SCC last night?
I’m stepping out for a late lunch and later might stop by Sephora to check out Urban Decay’s new Pocket Rocket Lipglosses. Other than that, I don’t have a lot going on today… I need some chill time.
