Swatches ~ Fashion Fair Metal Illuminator and Ginger Snap Eyeshadow + Video


Fashion Fair Metal Illuminator and Ginger Snap EyeshadowI recently heard a rumor that Fashion Fair Cosmetics was going out of business and this has been one of my Favorite Brands throughout the years.  I don't know how much truth it is to the rumor but I decided that the next time I went to church I would stop by the Macy's and pick up a few things.  My church is about a 30 minute drive from my home and there's a shopping center that has a Macy's which carries the Fashion Fair brand.

Fashion Fair Perfect Finish Metal Illuminator

I have been eyeing this Fashion Fair Perfect Finish Metal Illuminator for quite sometime.  Like so many others we think that i'll be around for an eternity and when we receive some unsettling news about a brand we love, we immediately go into panic wanting to get a few things before they're no longer available.  There are four Illuminators in the FF collection, all named accordingly.... Earth, Air, Sun & Metal.  They are finely milled with subtle illuminating sparkles throughout the grains.  Each shade gives a different shimmering effect from pink to peach, to amber to bronze.  I think they are all worth collecting, if you know how to layer they can be combined to create a very different effect.

Fashion Fair Ginger Snap Eyeshadow

I have so many eyeshadows but very a very limited collection of deep wine or burgundy colors.  I didn't see any swatches of the Ginger Snap eyeshadow online, but when I swatched it in the store I knew I had to have it.  FF eyeshadows are $14 a piece, that is not cheap if you're on a budget so I just bought this one color because I new that I didn't have anything like it.  There are a few others that I may pick up just in case there's any truth to the rumors about them going out of business.
