Trend Alert: Butterfly-Embossed Makeup

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.

Interesting...I'm not a huge fan of the butterflies, but I like how they can add more colors to the palettes.

Very pretty - the $19 one - but I would never pay $79 for makeup! Yikes.

The Les Trios one is so pretty. But in addition to not wanting to shell out almost $80 for makeup, I wouldn't want to ruin the pretty butterflies either!

Allow me to take this moment to pick on Hermosa. It's crowded and full of beach bum hippies. Booya! Redondo!

The packaging is pretty, but the three eye shadow colors seem really similar to me...I do like the palette though, but I'm with the rest of the group, I would not pay $79 for it!

79 bucks is really pushing it. I don't think I've ever spent more than 30 dollars on one make up product.

These are really cute in terms of packaging, which I am often a sucker for... I just purchased Too Faced's "Plaything of Passion" because, I mean come on! The cover picture was just too irresistible! (yes, I like the colors too). Plus I got it on the 20% off day - thanks again, Bella! But $19 for this tiny little single eye color? Luckily I'm not THAT much of a sucker (nor do I have that much spending cash!).
