China Glaze Up & Away Spring 2010 Collection Swatches & Review – Part I
Happy Monday morning to you all!
How was your Christmas? Did you get everything your heart desired?
Today I have part I of China Glaze’s Up & Away Collection for spring 2010.
This collection is made up of 12 cream colors that range the gamut from yellow to pink to royal purple.
This first half is made up of lighter pastel colors. I will admit, the formula on some of the lightest ones was a wee bit thick and streaky. It wasn’t anything unmanageable though. I was able to get them even with three even coats, and some patience. The yellow, of course, was the hardest to get even. Check them out!
Lemon Fizz is a bright, cool yellow. I LOVE this because it’s not an orange based yellow, and those never work with my skin tone. This was the problem child of the group, so use a good base coat, and then three even coats of color.
Light As Air is a very pretty light lavender. I also love this one, it looks spectacular with my skin. This was three coats.
Peachy Keen is a peach creme. I was shocked when I discovered this actually looked good on me, and I really like it! I actually think this is my favorite of this bunch! I only needed two coats and this was the less streaky of these six shown here.
Something Sweet is a pale light pink. Again on the cool side and really flattering with my skin. This was three coats.
Re-Fresh Mint is a cool light mint green. As I am typing this wearing Essie’s Mint Candy Apple, I am thinking how amazing it is that all these mint’s lately are different! This is cooler and lighter than Essie’s. This was three coats.
Sugar High is a bright flamingo pink. It’s funny because these colors never interest me that much in the bottle, but then I put them on and they look so good on me for some reason. This is just the perfect pink on my skin and it’s so shiny. This was two coats.
Overall I really like this collection. I know a lot of people don’t like pastels, but I love them (if they aren’t chalky, which these aren’t). These applied a lot better than Nubar’s pastel collection from last year.
These will be available online and in stores starting in January so keep a lookout!
What do you think, which ones will you be picking up?
