Duri Winter 2013 Collection Swatches & Review

Duri Winter 2013 Collection

Duri’s winter 2013 collection features six new shades in various finishes. Some are more run of the mill, a couple are more unique.

Dig in!

Duri Winter 2013 Collection 2

Duri Pure Vanilla
Pure Vanilla

Pure Vanilla is not vanilla at all, but rather a pale, milky pink creme. This polish is thick and definitely on the streaky side, but it does wind up fairly even after three thin coats.

Duri Kinky Pleasures
Kinky Pleasures

Kinky Pleasures is a vivid blue with blue shimmer. This is an amazing blue color. Mesmerizing. The formula is really buttery and fantastic. Really easy to work with and totally covered in two coats.

Duri Indulge My Whim
Indulge My Whim

Indulge My Whim is a green and gold and holographic glitter in a clear base. The glitter pieces are straight and short. I used two coats here and got pretty decent coverage but it looks better layered (below).

Duri Winter 2013 Collection 3

Duir Laters Baby
Laters Baby

Laters Baby is a blood red creme. This isn’t really anything that interesting, but it’s a nice shiny red nonetheless. Great formula, I only needed two coats and it was smooth sailing.

Duir Provocatively Innocent
Provocatively Innocent

Provocatively Innocent is a deep red creme. Another one that isn’t unique but still nice. I used two coats for complete coverage.

Duri Absolute Intimacy
Absolute Intimacy

Absolute Intimacy is a vampy purple creme. I totally love this one. For some reason even though it’s not unique, I am really drawn to it. I think I like it because while it’s uber-dark, it doesn’t look black. It has that hint of purple still. And it’s very shiny and had a great formula, covering in just two coats!

Overall: My favorite shades here were Kinky Pleasure and Absolute Intimacy. I do think Indulge My Whim is a pretty good and interesting glitter, if you are a glitter person. Duri has some really, really amazing shades that I have reviewed in the past and generally their formula is spot-on. Check my gallery under “Duri” for more ideas!

Availability: Duri.

Pricing: $6.00.

    That shimmer in Kinky Pleasures is amazing. I’ve never tried Duri polishes before but I may need to pick a few up.

    I haven’t tried Duri yet but I’d love to!
    I really like Kinky Pleasures! The polish that it! šŸ˜‰

    I liked the reds and the purple

    My favorite is when you put the Indulge my whim glitters over the Absolute Intimacy. The glitters might be good on top of the Kinky pleasures too.

    Who/where to go to buy this brand? Is it only sold on their own web site? That’s all the info I got off their web site. Good price point/bottle if there is not HUGE tax and shipping added. The vamp shades in this collection are very dupable. That said, I don’t hold it against polish companies for coming out with their own shades of what is out there and popular if they are going to keep the shades in some ongoing classic line. There are always going to be fans of this and that brand over another brand so there can be a need for core shades that one sees in a # of lines. Provocatively Innocent looks so much like OPI Skyfall..and others I have from yrs in the past that did this rusty red. The green/gold glitter on it’s own (not layered) I thought right off of grass clippings from mowing the lawn!

    On the side – really would like to know how to use your voting area for the yes please or no thanks you always include. It’s never showing up as anything I can link up to to put in a vote. I am all updated in Java and Flash and everything else, use Win 7 on a PC and very computer literate – so not sure how it’s supposed to work. Clearly a few readers can engage that area of your blog, but I sure never can. Figured I should finally say something about this area because if I cannot find anything to click on to give my yeah, nah vote..others out there surely have the same issue.

    Kind of an unexpected selection of colors – some are super Christmas-y/winter-y and others look like spring! Regardless, I like the green glitter layered, it really looks like mini Christmas tree pine leaves (OK leaves isn’t the right word – what do you call the green lines on pine trees?) The reds and purples are lovely too.

      LOL! The word you were looking for is needles! Christmas trees have needles not leaves! I hate that when I cannot think of a word I am looking for that I know I know!

    these names sound like they’re based on 50 shades of grey! and i mean literally.

  • December 26, 2012

    I dig the variety of this collection .. kinky pleasures is for sure my fav.. very beautiful shimmery shade of blue. I have never heard of Duri but would for sure give it a go if I ever came across a polish by them.

    Wishing I had Indulge My Whim to wear on Christmas!

    I’ve never heard of this brand before but I really like some of the shades! Really good range of shades, too! xoxo

    I thought these were lovely until I went to the website and saw “Laters Baby!” also in the collection. Then it quickly dawned on me what the theme was. NOOOOOO!

    • December 29, 2012

      I didn’t notice the name until the site, that is.

      lol @ “Oh, My!” Needs an “Inner Goddess Doing the Samba”.

    I’m interested in trying some Duri polishes, but this collection seems a little random. Or really, the light pink seems a little random. But I really love Kinky Pleasures– it’s super pretty! And the vampy ones are nice, but seem fairly dupeable.

    These look great on you, Kelly!

    The only one from this collection that I bought was Indulge My Whim. It was a must-have for me because of my love of green and because I only have a few bar glitters in my collection. :)
