Here we go with Part II of Barielle’s All Lacquered Up collection for fall 2009. There are quite a few that I really love in this set and not a single one that I didn’t like or that didn’t flatter me. Totally spot on! Peep ’em out!
Putt-E-On Me is a fabulous mushroom taupe creme. If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you know that mushroom colored polishes are some of my very fav and now this one joined the rest of them. There is something that’s so “out of the norm” with colors like this and that’s why I like them. I like wearing colors that you won’t see people like Dina Lohan or Paris Hilton’s mother wearing (yuck). This was creamy and opaque in just two coats.
Get Mauve-ing is a really pretty mauve creme. Normally I am not a huge mauve fan, BUT this one is slightly dusty, giving it a more edgy look. I love it and this was two coats.
Out-Grey-Gorgeous is a silver/grey shimmer with gold micro glitter. This was my least favorite of this bunch, surprisingly. I don’t know why but it didn’t do a whole lot for me. It’s still nice, but I’m not falling all over myself like with some of the others. This was two coats.
Pin Up. Wow. Ok this really took me by surprise, it’s SO pretty and I really love it. Red isn’t usually my thing unless it’s blackened or super dark, but this one is just amazing. It’s a bright tomato red with gold micro glitter. And I don’t know what it is about the application on this one, but it almost applied itself it was so creamy and smooth! I totally forsee myself wearing this with MAC Well Red or Russian Red lipstick in the near future. This was two coats.
Make It A Latte
Make It A Latte is a beautiful cocoa brown with gold shimmer. Not sure why it’s called “Make It A Latte” since lattes are a lot lighter than this, but who cares, I love it. Seriously, this is my favorite of these six. I like to be a rebel and not pick the obvious fav (which is the next one). Something about dark shimmery browns totally appeal to me and this really flatters my skin tone as well. Plus it’s got that ‘lit from within’ effect, which is one of my favorite things ever in a polish. This was two coats.
Falling Star is the one I mentioned is probably the fan favorite, it is a really unique color. The base is a medium blue and it’s packed with small copper colored glitter. The combo of blue and copper is great and makes it like nothing else I have seen out there. This was three coats.
Overall I am super happy with this whole collection of 12 colors Michelle and Elle from Barielle worked so hard on. It’s incredibly rare to find a collection where I really like all the colors and would actually wear 95% of them (the one I would love to wear but can’t is Polished Princess, sadly, it’s way too yellow for me). There wasn’t a single color in here that was boring or looked like a million other polishes out there. Add to that the fact that the formula rocked and almost all were two coaters and that makes for a great collection!
You will be able to find these on Barielle’s website here starting in August. The polishes are $8.00 each, but if you buy 2 you get a third one free.
So which ones do you see yourself buying when they come out? You can see my review of Part I here if you need a refresher.
