SpaRitual Wander Collection for Fall 2014

SpaRitual Wander

I first saw the SpaRitual Wander collection for fall 2014 online when looking at what was new at Ulta. A few of these shades SCREAMED at me, so I went to check them out in person. They did not disappoint.

This collection features six new shades all with a “sandy matte” finish. I picked up the three that appealed to me the most. I actually didn’t even notice these were supposed to be this matte texture until I swatched the first one, then looked at the bottom of the bottle where it clearly said “sandy matte shimmer”. On their own they have a very slight sandy texture, not anywhere near as textured as most other brands though. They just look dull and kind of blah, like they are begging for a shiny top coat. So I’ve swatched them with a top coat so you can really see the shimmer coming through. It’s magical!

SpaRitual polishes have such a great formula and these are just as good as I remembered. They are smooth, apply perfectly and cover in two coats. And in case you weren’t aware, SpaRitual is cruelty-free, three-free and vegan.

SpaRitual Water Collection for Spring 2012 Swatches & Review

New for spring 2012 is SpaRitual’s Water collection.

This collection is a little special because SpaRitual is supporting an organization called Surge, which is a non-profit company that improves access to clean, safe water for communities around the world. 20% of the proceeds from this collection will be donated to Surge.

“The Water Collection represents the importance it has for our physical wellbeing (up to 70% of the human body is composed of water) and our emotional health (it’s a proven fact that water provides soothing benefits). Sadly, communities around the world lack access to clean drinking water,” says SpaRitual founder, Shel Pink. “We’re pleased to be involved with Surge, and to support the foundation’s efforts to help provide clean, safe drinking water worldwide.”

Aside from the fact that this is a really great cause, the collection has some amazing colors!

SpaRitual Wilde Collection for Fall 2011 Swatches, Photos & Review

The SpaRitual Wilde nail collection for fall 2011 was inspired by the book Women Who Run with the Wolves. Yep you heard it right, this collection is all about wild women and nature. I can get down with that and I am definitely down with these colors!

The colors in this collection are deep, shimmery and jewel-toned. They glow. They are SO autumn-y and full of depth.

SpaRitual’s formula is usually really great and these keep in that tradition. Despite the fact that there are some frosty metallics here, there wasn’t much streaking. Only one color required more than two coats.
