I like trying out new products. So if I can afford it I tend to buy a colour that looks appealing, a brush that is in the sale or a linen I have never used before. Sometimes it is a disappointment, often it is just ok, and now and then you hit the jackpot.
Vasari’s New Cyprus Umber Yellow Genuine
I know Vasari is not a brand for everyone so this recommendation might well fall on deaf ears. But since I love Vasari I sometimes buy a colour that just looks gorgeous. I am pretty aware that I don’t need any new colours (once you got your basics you really don’t ‘need’ anything else) but now and then you come across a colour that becomes a staple colour. And besides, it is fun to try out new sweets.
Vasari’s Cyprus Umber Yellow Genuine is part of a new range of colours which came out this year. It is just gorgeous! It is a transparent warm yellowish brown that is so subtle it is to die for. I used it in the picture below in combination with Vasari Bluff to mould the facial features a little. Very subtle, very sfumato, very warm.
Have you tried it? What do you think?
