What's not to love about pink? It is representative of a newborn's skin, sugary swirls of cotton candy enjoyed at the boardwalk, sunsets at the shore, and a child's very first pair of satin ballet slippers. Don't be fooled however, pink is no push over. As feminine as pink is, it is strong and boldly represents breast cancer. It is THE COLOR of females and we are beautiful, nurturing, graceful, and empathetic. We are tough when we need to be, we fight for our families, our children, and wipe our friend's tears. We take care of ailing parents, tend to family pets, and make difficult decisions when faced with life's challenges. It's my favorite color. It's the color of my soul.
Speaking of beauty, I wanted to share my latest find with you all. I picked up The Light Show Palette, from Bare Escentuals. This is exclusive to their boutiques, you won't find it at Sephora. I was looking for something travel friendly to hit the road with. Have you tried any of their pressed formulas? This palette has my favorite bronzer, High Dive, which looks dark, but is totally build-able. The blush is a pretty peachy-pink and the eye shadows are all very blend-able and look beautiful on. The lipgloss is a peach nude, is sheer, and has a peppermint cooling sensation. I prefer to wear the gloss over a pink lipstick for a bit more color. The best part is that it comes packaged in a cute little gold sequined clutch. This palette would work good on so many skin tones.
Do you agree that pink is the color of femininity? What do you like most about being a woman? Where do you feel our strengths lie?
