Glace, Cheery Cheery, Lavender Whip, Devil’s Food
Glace is a pale icy blue.
Cheery Cheery is a light cool pink.
Lavender Whip is a very cool toned lavender (cremesheen).
Devil’s Food is a deep plum/brown (frost).
Pink Rebel, Dangerous Cuvée, Éclair
Pink Rebel is a pink with gold pearl. So pretty.
Dangerous Cuvée is a frosty grey with silver.
Éclair is a light coppery brown with gold. LOVE.
Pink Buttercream, In for a Treat
Pink Buttercream combines to be a light slightly silvery pink.
In for a Treat combines to be a light shimmery peach.
Confectionary is a light cool-toned pink creme. Had the potential to be a nice shade, however it was very streaky, even after three thin coats.
Bleu Velvet is a periwinkle blue creme. Another one with good potential, but bad streaky formula. This is three coats.
Pistachio Crème is a light cool mint-like creme. Same story as the others. Nice color, bad formula. This is three coats.
Overall: Aside form the totally obvious, which is that this collection is cute as hell, there are some good things in here. In particular I love the Pearlmatte Face Powders, Pink Rebel Lustre Drops, Eclair Paint Pot and Lavender Whip Lipstick.
I’m sad to say, as per usual lately, that the creme nail shades just aren’t that great. If they could work out their issue with streaky cremes it would be a great thing!
