Celestial Cosmetics November LE 2015

Good evening! Tonight I’m bringing you another LE from Celestial Cosmetics, this time for the month of November. Now, this is my birthday month so I’m very familiar with the November birthstone, which is topaz (and also citrine). I’ve always disliked topaz as well because the colour topaz bandied around for November is orange/yellow and it’s never fully suited my skintone (FYI – it’s pink, pale and splotchy 😦 ). Anywho, when I saw Nicki’s creation I was a bit “Err, not gonna look good”, but it turns out when worn this is a very warm and complimentary colour. I was pleasantly surprised, as they say. Check it out!

How beautiful does this colour look? It’s an orange linear holo with pink shimmer and I think that’s why it works for me. The pink cuts through the orange nicely (you can probably see it best in the second photo). Nicki based the colour on the most prized colour of topaz called the imperial topaz after the Russian tsars of the 1800s, which has an orange colour with pink undertones. She captured it so well. I’ve applied two coats without top coat.

DETAILS

The November LE is available on the Celestial Cosmetics website now, so if you’re interested, head over and check it out. Remember, if you’re in the US you can also pick this up from the US website too, which is here. Thanks for reading!
