Makeup Must-Have: Make Up For Ever's Fifty Shades of Grey Collection

I have to admit, I was a little hesitant to read Fifty Shades of Grey.  Even though I'm still as much of a bookworm as ever, I wasn't completely sold on the whole concept. After seeing the movie previews, I became pretty much obsessed with reading it though, and my lovely boyfriend actually bought me the trilogy for Christmas. Needless to say, I absolutely loved it and am waiting quite impatiently for the movie to come out!

Since I've fallen in love with the unconventional love story, I also was crazily excited to see that Make Up For Ever just barely came out with a makeup collection based solely on the story.

The entire collection looks fabulous (not surprising, since Make Up For Ever always has incredible products). My ownly issue? None of the products are gray! I was surprised by this, since the color itself is mentioned throughout the story a bunch. I just assumed that eyeshadow-wise, there'd be a palette of soft gray hues.

Instead, the shadows are all nice neutral colors that are actually quite gorgeous, so I can't complain very much.

Here's a pic of the different products available in the collection:

I'm sure it comes at no surprise that my top pick is the Give In To Me Eye and Lip set ($79).  Each kit comes with the following:
  • Artist Shadow palette in I-514, ME-612, S-556, I-625
  • Graphic eyeliner
  • Smoky Extravagant mascara
  • Rouge Artist Natural lipstick in N4
  • Lab Shine lip gloss in D14
  • Exclusive keepsake box

And yes, of course I'm loving the box. The keepsake box features a hidden compartment and key so you can lock away secrets of your own. I mean, how cool is that??! All that aside, the products in this set are gorgeous and flatter nearly every skin tone. This is also a great kit to buy if you've never tried any Make Up For Ever products and you want to give them a go. The price may seem a little steep, but the quality of this makeup is totally worth it.

Along with the main set, Make Up For Ever also has a super pretty Desire Me Blush Trio ($49). The blush hues are fun to mix and match to create your own unique look, and it all comes in a super cute keepsake pouch.

If you want to get something from the collection, but aren't up for spending a ton, try out the last set in the collection, the Tease Me Lip Trio ($32). You can purchase it in either nude or berry colors--personally I love a berry lip for Winter. This set comes with matching lip pencil, stick and gloss to create the perfect look for your pucker.

The entire collection is Sassy Fashionista Approved! I absolutely cannot wait to wear this gorgeous makeup when I drag my boyfriend to see the movie (it comes out on Valentine's Day)!
