Deborah Lippmann Jewel Heist for fall 2013 features six new shades all in shimmery or glittery jewel tones.
Today I’ve got what she classifies as the two shimmers and creme in the collection. The other three not shown are uber glitters – Glitter And Be Gay (canary yellow), Shake Your Money Maker (emerald green) and Va Va Voom (sapphire glitter).
I picked these ones to review because I prefer shimmers and creme to glitters. And those glitters appear to be the super chunky kind, which I am not a huge fan of. They do all color coordinate though, so you can mix and match easily.
Fake It Til You Make It is what she calls a shimmer but I call a glitter. It’s a pale gold with pink and green glitter inside. Very fine glitter, it covers completely with two coats and in that way does seem more like a shimmer. But it’s very sparkly and doesn’t dry smooth, so in that way it feels more like a glitter. Either way it’s a really nice color combo! Pretty sure I don’t have anything quite like this one.
Laughin’ To The Bank is a shimmery emerald green. It’s deep and dark without looking blackened. It’s a lit-from-within shade, really quite pretty and intense. Great formula with this one, only two smooth and creamy coats for coverage.
Rolling In The Deep is what she calls a creme but I call a shimmer (sorta). The color is a super dark blackened blue but it has hints of lighter blue micro-sparkle within. The formula went on almost like a jelly. It builds up with three coats into this really deep blue shade. I wish the blue sparkle came through a little more, but then again, she classifies it as a creme so it’s probably meant to be like this.
Overall: I am really liking Fake It Til You Make It and Laughin’ To The Bank especially here. The formula was great with these three, as per usual with her shades. I think Fake It Til You Make It is probably the most unique one of these three.
