It's easy to be green!

I love me a good palette and boy these two beauties are among the best! On the left is My Favorite Powders, a limited edition palette, available online at Josie Maran and in Barneys stores. The palette on the right is Wildflower and is new for spring.

My Favorite Powders consists of 5 eyeshadows, 2 blushes and a bronzer and the colors are warm but not orange! I am hooked on Valentine and Cinnamon eyeshadows (2 &3 from left) and can not believe the texture and color payoff of these shadows. The bronzer is very neutral (no orange) and has a touch of shimmer that makes it luminous not shiny.

Wildflowers is a cooler toned palette and has gorgeous grey, lilac and taupe eyeshadows and the shimmer powder in Posey (large pan on bottom) is to die for. It gives just the right amount of highlight without looking glittery at all.

Both palette's are $45 and worth every last penny. I have packed them for trips to NYC and Chicago and kept coming back to them for easy morning makeup and a night out.

For those of you who are new to Josie Maran's line, this line is all about luxury with a conscience. Josie wanted to create a line that was both top quality while being a responsible steward of our planet. The cosmetics are packaged in a corn based resin, can be recycled and the paper is 30% post consumer waste product.

I think we can all agree that anything we can do to be responsible consumers is worth doing and this brand not only does that, it delivers gorgeous products to boot!
