Shades by Barielle – Spring 2010 Wildflower Collection

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 2 - 2010

Spring is coming, can you feel it?  The evenings are just starting to get the teeniest bit lighter and I for one, am pretty darn excited about it.

Beauty-wise though… Spring, for me, is the dullest season collection-wise.  I don’t really ‘dig’ pastels… they wash me out.  I have to wait nearly a whole year for my favourite to come round again – A/W FTW!

My Spring blues were lifted somewhat though when I saw this post on Cosmetic Candy.

To put it simply, Barielle’s Spring 2010 Wildflower Collection looks hawt.

Comprised of 6 shades, it’s screams: “Hey, I’m doing Spring… but I’m doing it my way!”

The stand-out shades for me are A Bouquet For Eva, June Bug and Daring Dahlia.

Myrza’s Meadow captures my imagination, but I can’t imagine it looking good on my skintone.

Here’s how Barielle describe them:

A Bouquet for Eva – A cool Caribbean blue
June Bug – A teal with fuchsia glitter
Blossom – An opaque peach
Daring Dahlia – A deep fuchsia with a hint of silver metallic
Snap Dragon – A metallic sea foam green
Myrza’s Meadow – A light lime green with silver glitter

Barielle Shade’s polishes are available to buy from the Barielle UK Website and are priced at £8.00ea.  No sign of the Spring Wildflower Collection yet though… Hurry up Barielle, it’ll be Summer soon!

Any of them on your radar?

  1. I love Daring Dahlia and Snap Dragon- I’ve been keeping my eye out for a wearable green. I wonder how opaque it will be though, it looks like it will need quite a few coats.

  2. Spring is very reluctant to… spring here in the states. Snow during the weekend, snow today, snow tomorrow *shivers*

    Gorgeous shades though. I’ve never tried Barielle but I may now!

  3. There’s a pic of June bug on http://www.alllacqueredup.com/2009/12/barielle-wildflower-collection-junebug-preview.html . I found it the other week when researching Barielle green colours, after I asked you about polished princess. Nearly bought several, then didn’t buy any lol, Still want them, but….we’ll see

  4. That’s a nice idea to use contrasting glitter to the shade of the polish – has anyone else done that?

  8. […] out over here… or even IF it’s coming out, I’m still sulking over the missing Wildflower Collection.  Maybe we can expect this next Winter, who knows? […]
