BB Couture has recently released a new collection “for men” called Mechanics 101 for spring.
In case you didn’t know, BB Couture has “regular” releases and also collections geared towards men. The bottles are square, the colors are more masculine and the names, of course, are very manly! This is their third collection for men. Of course we know we can all wear whatever we want!
For me this collection has some hits and some that just didn’t go with my skin tone.
The formula as usual with BB was really great, I had not a single problem with any of these and they were all two coats. Read on!
Intake Valve is a pale taupey latte color. It does have very slight gold shimmer in it, which is hard to see here. This is a really nice color and when I’m feelin’ like doing something pale, I can see myself wearing this.
Stick Shift is a bright mustard yellow with a lot of gold and pink and gold shimmer. I absolutely hated this color in the bottle, thought it looked very ugly. But then I saw the shimmer and once it was on, I REALLY liked it! Not sure if it’s the best with my skin, but I kinda don’t care!
Universal Joint is a medium olive green packed with gold and pink shimmer. BB never goes wrong with their greens! I cannot think of another nail polish company that has done this many greens this well. This one is unique compared to all their others, and my fav of this collection.
Drive Shaft is a coppery looking medium pink color with a silvery frost finish. Not my favorite color, it was a little bland for me and I’m not too keen on the frost.It applied very nicely though!
Fuel Injector is a vivid grass green with gold shimmer. Another stunning green, I think this color is so nice for spring! The application on this one was particularly amazing, it was SO perfect going on, almost one coat for complete opacity, but I used two.
Shock Absorber is a bright red/orange shimmer. I didn’t love this one on me either, but it’s a nice color still.
You can find these and all the other awesome BB colors on Overall Beauty here and they retail for $9.00 each or $52.00 for the whole collection.
How are you guys feeling about these?
