Unless you live under a rock or completely avoid all popular culture, you have heard about the scandalous pages of the erotic novel “50 Shades of Grey”. With the recent movie release, it seems to be the talk of the town. The story has even made its way into the makeup world.
Makeup Forever has launched an underhandedly erogenous collection inspired by the book. The collection includes suggestively named sets such as “Give In To Me Makeup Kit,” the “Tease Me Lip Set,” and the “Desire Me Cheek Set.”
Give In To Me Makeup Kit ($79)
This makeup kit features a worthy arrangement of products. The set is love at first sight with its strong black exterior and striking touches of pink ribbon, velvet and erotic book quotes. While some may find the book’s contents to be distasteful, the whole set is actually quite elegant. That is until you open the box to find the trap door inside. The inside features a large vanity mirror, along with the rest of the set. Now onto the important part: the makeup!
The set comes with a full sized Smokey Extravagant Mascara, graphic liquid eyeliner in black, a smooth natural colored Rouge Artist Lipstick, a lightly tinted pink lip-gloss with gold specks and an Artist Shadow Palette, featuring four beautiful shades like an olive green color, rose gold, mauve and crystallized white. Overall, the set is packed with great products for an easy everyday look, while also being easy to transform into a glammed up look.
Tease Me Lip Set ($32)
The Tease Me Lip Set comes in two different sets: innocent and passion. The Innocent lip trio includes a smudge-proof lip pencil in medium natural beige, an aqua rouge lipstick in medium natural beige and a Lab Shine lip gloss in shimmering beige. The Passionate set features the same lip pencil just in matte raspberry, the lipstick comes in the limited edition shade 50 and the lip-gloss in D4 shimmering grenadine.
Desire Me Cheek Set ($49)
Lastly, is the cheek set that comes in an adorable, velvet string tie pouch. The string around the pouch even holds a fun little key. Within the bag is a travel sized angled blush brush and the cheek trio, which includes two blush shades in bubblegum pink and peach. The last piece is a highlight that is shimmery, but not overpowering.
Whether you enjoy or are against the controversial contents of the book, this collection is sure to be enjoyed by all. Makeup Forever kept this erotic inspired makeup classy, while still capturing the essence of the story. While you will not get any play toys in this set, you will find some extravagant mascara, creamy lip colors and sultry shades.
