Butterflies are naturally synonymous with Spring. After sitting cocooned in sweaters and blankets all winter long, we get out the colorful cosmetics and flutter out at the first signs of sunshine. So it's fitting that the creatures are showing up in Spring makeup with butterfly imagery stamped right onto eye shadows. Here are two ways to get your butterfly fix.
A few days ago, I introduced you to Luscious Cosmetics, which makes a line of finely milled eye shadows called Social Butterfly Eye Velvets ($19). These delicate, shimmery shades work more like cream shadows, so they won't crease or feather throughout the day. The eye velvets come in three gorgeous colors: Venice, Malibu, and Hermosa.
For one more butterfly-embossed product,
Les Trios Palette "Garden in Kyoto" by Chantecaille ($79) will make you look good and feel good, too: A portion of the proceeds go to the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary Foundation to help preserve butterfly habitats. The palette includes shine eye shade in Willow, lip gloss in Dragon Fruit, and powder blush in Cherry Blossom. The three full-size products come in a thin metallic silver case with a mirror and double-sided eye shadow brush.
