Haaaaayyyyy people of the world!
Diamond Cosmetics has a couple new colors out for spring along with a new matte finish top coat. I am feeling a bit “over” the whole matte thing right now, especially since my brain is on bright glossy spring-like colors, but I wound up liking theirs more than I thought I would.
The formula on these colors was pretty darn good, no complaints whatsoever. Peep ’em and weep!
Concrete Jungle is a super fabulous light grey creme. Me loves it, it reminds me of this movie I watched about 20 million times in the 80’s with Maxwell Caulfield and Charlie Sheen called The Boys Next Door. Maxwell drove a primer grey hot rod, and ever since then I always loved this color. You might want to know if this is the same as Rescue Beauty Lounge’s Concrete Jungle. The answer is yes, it’s pretty much an exact dupe. So if you don’t have that, you could get this and save some cashola! This was two coats.

See the primer grey hot rod 🙂
What I love about Concrete Jungle with their matte top coat is that it looks very satiny. It’s not one of those flat chalky mattes, it has a nice texture. I think it looks particularly great with this color, and in fact this looks more like the hot rod color!
Starry Night is a black base with different colored micro-glitter. I was very pleased that this wasn’t black with silver glitter, because we’ve seen that so much lately. This was three coats for full opacity.
I like the way this looks with the matte top coat over it, but not as much as Concrete Jungle.
The great thing about Diamond Cosmetics is that almost all of their colors are only $2.00! AND the formula is really great so you can really score! The matte top coat is $3.50. You can find these on their website here.
