New! Winky Lux Coffee Collection!

Press Sample

Get ready to satisfy your Java addiction sans the caffeine with the new Coffee Collection from Winky Lux! The collection consists of a Coffee Eye Shadow Palette ($25), two Coffee Bronzers ($20). I was also sent a Creamy Dreamies Conditioning Lipstick in Leche ($14) which I don’t believe is part of the collection but it compliments it beautifully.

The star of the collection is the nine-pan Coffee Palette with matte, satin, and shimmer shades. These brown, taupe, and sienna colors make the perfect neutral shadow lineup. Okay, okay I KNOW it’s another neutral palette, but the quality is there and the price is right. Each shade is named after your favorite warm drink. Getting thirsty yet? They even smell like coffee so you can get your fix without the calories! Don’t worry though, you really have to get close to the products to smell them.

  • Affogato – matte cream
  • Light & Sweet – satin champagne beige
  • Cappuccino – matte butterscotch
  • Macchiato – satin gray-brown
  • Frappé – shimmery peachy pink
  • Americano – matte medium brown
  • Double Shot – shimmery deep bronze brown
  • Cold Brew – shimmery steel grey
  • Espresso – black matte brown with multi shimmer

I HAVE to talk about the packaging because it is to-die-for. The coffee palette is a heavy cardboard with a magnetic closure, sorry no mirror. The print….oh the elegant yet charming print! It’s a floral botanical print with tiny cups of coffee mixed in. Both the outer box and the palette itself have this pattern and it’s so cute and whimsical, I adore it. I would love to have a table runner or curtains in this print in my kitchen. Cappuccino and 

The eyeshadows are smooth and very pigmented, they do have powder kickup in the pan but it’s negligible. All the shimmer shades are stunning, my favorite is Frappé, then Double Shot the Cold Brew. Is it weird to have a gray shade in a coffee palette? I don’t know but the shade is beautiful and I’m glad it’s there. Cappuccino and Macchiato make wonderful transition/crease shades and Light & Sweet is perfect for the inner corner, brow bone or lid.

For this look, I used Affogato as my base shade, Cappuccino as my crease shade, Frappé on the lid and Americano on the outer corner and to line the top lashes. I also used Cappuccino under the lower lash line and Americano to line lower lash line.

I used Mocha Bronzer along the hairline and under the cheekbones. Leche is on the lips with Praline Glaze as a topper.

The Creamy Dreamies Conditioning Lipsticks are packaged in a luxe rose gold & white tube that may appear small, but there is actually a lot of product inside–even more than a MAC lipstick. These are very creamy and almost feel like a balm but they have great pigment and decent lasting power. The satin finish is very pretty and comfortable t0 wear. Leche is a warm nude brown with a rose undertone. I was intimidated at the color in the tube but once on my lips it sheered out and looked beautiful. There are 9 shades available.

Winky Lux Glazed Lip Glosses ($13) are designed to look like the sugar glaze on donuts! What goes better with coffee than donuts?? The slim tube comes packaged in a darling box adorned with flowers and donuts–so cute without being juvenile. I have Praline Glaze, a pinky peach with iridescent shimmer. The shimmer does not feel gritty and the gloss isn’t sticky–yay! The gloss is absolutely gorgeous and smells like vanilla frosting. Praline is currently not available on the website, I don’t know if it out of stock or what the status is but there are three other shades as well. Wear alone or over lipstick. I put this over Leche and it looks fantastic!

Coffee Bronzer is available in two shades, Mocha and Latte. I have Mocha and was afraid it would be too dark for me but it actually works beautifully. No worries for those with darker skin tones, it is definitely buildable. It too has a lovely coffee scent that is not overpowering. It has a beautiful satin finish; not glittery but not dull and flat.

My previous exposure to Winky Lux was just a lipstick I got in a POPSUGAR box. After my stellar experience with the Coffee Collection, I will be purchasing more from Winky Lux soon! The formulas are right on, the packaging superb, and the prices are affordable!
