Caryl Baker Visage - Welcome to Paradise


A few weeks ago, Karyn and Kelly from Visage Cosmetics sent me a little package of their Spring 2012 Colour Collection. Ever since I was litte, I remember passing by Caryl Baker Visage stores in malls many times but never got the chance to try out their products. My mom always pulled my hands away and bribed me with french fries to keep me away from make up! So I'm kinda excited to try their products for the first time ever! Yea, after like 15 years! Visage Cosmetics has been around since 1969! You can read about their history here, it's actually quite interesting :)

Spring has officially arrived with our new “Welcome to Paradise” Colour Collection.

There are three individual colour stories that are inspired by various tropical palettes: gorgeous sandy beaches, tropical flowers and the crystal blue ocean.

1) Polynesian Princess – dark and light blues, mixed with creams and neutrals
2) Fiji Flirt – bright violets tempered with muted pinks
3) Tahitian Tease – sparkly bronze blended with corals


The items I was provided with from the Polyenisan Princess colour stories

Caryl Baker Visage Coral Crush Lipstick

I'm so in love with the packaging of the lipstick.
It has a jewel on it (I LOVE BLINGBLING) and once I take the cap off, it flips out with a mirror.
A MIRROR!! How thoughtful!

The lipstick is a matte formula and can be used with gloss to achieve a lush lacquered look. Personally, this shade doesn't work too well for my skin tone. I feel like I was very matured. I think I prefer something a little lighter with more pinks in it.

Retails for $17.50 CAD, Beauty Club Members: $15.75 CAD


Caryl Baker Visage Wowee Maui Mineral Blush

Caryl Baker Visage Wowee Maui Mineral Blush


The packaging of the Blush reminds strongly of M.A.C. which is perfectly professional. This blush is actually a limited editional shade for Spring.
It's shimmery peach which reminds me of NARS orgasm but not as powering.
I find that the color is soft yet vibrant. It's a little shimmery and gives off a healthy undertone glow - nothing oily looking.
This blush is perfect for any skin tone, I can surely wear this color everyday.

Retail: $21.50 CAD, Beauty Club Members: $19.35 CAD


Caryl Baker Visage Bali Spring Sparklers

Caryl Baker Visage Bali Spring Sparklers

It's a loose pigment that can be used as shadow dust for eyes, all over the face as a highlighter or a really special effect with a moistened liner brsuh for eye lids.
The color is very similar to the blush, pink/coral shimmer but with more gold tones.
A multi-purpose item that really can't hurt anyone's collection!

Retail: $17.50 CAD, Beauty Club Members: $15.75 CAD

Caryl Baker Visage Eye Shadow Trio Palette

Caryl Baker Visage Eye Shadow Trio Palette

The palette consist of everyday neutrals.
Starting from the left, there is Mystic-al, a creamy beige color that's perfect for the inner dust and highlights.  Dream On, a shimmery peach colour, that can be used all over the lids and the lower lash line.   Finally there is Coco Loco, a bronze with a small hint of mauve shimmer, that can be used for the lids and the lower lash line to create a soft dreamy look.

I find that the shadows are overall pigmented.
They are a little chalky but they can be easily blended together.

Trio Palette Retail $52.50 CAD
Individual Shadows Retail: $17.50 CAD, Beauty Club Members: $15.75 CAD
