Senna Cosmetics 2013 Summer Collection - Review & Summer FOTD

Hi Bellas,

Happy Monday!  Today I'm excited to share with you a new summer collection from one of my favorite brands Senna Cosmetics.  There are some absolutely beautiful items that I can't wait to show you that will make amazing complements to your Summer Looks.  Check it out!


Introducing the Senna Cosmetics Summer 2013 Collection!  The products come in two parts - Sunglow Bronzelite and Sunglow Emerald Aisle.  I really like how the collection is truly comprehensive for all tastes and skin tones.  You have both bolds and neutrals that make the prettiest summer looks.
First off is Sunglow Bronzelite.  This is a great collection for fresh, neutral lovers.  The collection contains a nice mix of rosey golds and mauvey pinks.
This includes 2 lipsticks:  Down to Earth Cream Lipstick (a mauvey pink) and Midas Cream Lipstick (metallic gold).

You also get Sunstone Lip Lacquer, a really pretty amber gloss.  You can also use the Midas lipstick to highlight your lips with golden shine without a glossy texture.
I'm in love with Ultra Last Eyeliners.  This collection comes with Ultra Brown - a super wearable dark brown that goes on rich but doesn't budge.  
Rose Gold Glow Eye Color is so pretty for a bit of shine on the eyes and will perfectly coordinate with all the Rose Gold Jewelry that's all the rage right now.
Brilliant Bronze in Dawn combines a pretty light bronze bronzer and a seashell pink highlighter.  There is definitely shimmer in this product so your skin will really glow.  You can wear it for a light radiance or deepen it for more color.  Apply the colors separately or swirl it all together - that's how I like it, as a pretty rose gold blush.
Onto Emerald Aisle!  This part of the collection has fun pops of color and a deeper bronzer great for women of color and those who love a good tan.
Sunset Brilliant Bronze combines a deep bronze and golden highlighter which I think is super flattering for tan and deep skin tones.  It's dark enough that I can even use it to contour.  I love swiping this all over for a sun-kissed look and concentrating the golden highlight on cheekbones for extra glow. 
The collection also features the 33 Powder Brush.  I love Senna Brushes, they are high quality with awesome construction and super soft bristles.  Use the pointed tip to apply the highlighter with a light touch or even to fit into your cheekbones for contouring.  Or use the side of the brush for an all over deposit of color.
This collection features the Ultra Black Ultra Last Liner.  This is really intensely black which I love.  Since it's waterproof, work quickly with it and sometimes I like to warm it up between my palms to make the color super creamy.  I also like that it's retractable and has a comfortable rubber grip.  It's the little things that set this liner apart.
To top it off, Bonfire Lip Lacquer is a sizzling blood orange gloss that is so on trend right now.  I love that it's a deeper red orange because it makes it a bit more wearable and also super seductress at the same time.
Onto the swatches! You also get Emerald Gold Eye Color the perfect summer aqua shade.  I'm always impressed with Senna's shadows...they're rich, velvety and highly pigmented.  I love this color for a fun pop on the lid or just a peak of color on the lower lashl ine.  It's a very sophisticated shade of color.
I created a summer look using both collections.  I actually wore this look on my birthday!
