BB Couture has two new collections for us this fall called Infamous Lovers. One half is the men, designed in the “For Men’s” square bottles, and the other is the women in the standard round bottle.
Today I’ve got the men’s side for ya.
The formula is great, I had no issues at all. Most were just two coats and they are smooth and opaque.
John Smith is a pale beige/taupe creme with microscopic specks of silver glitter and slightly larger black specks. The black specks are barely there and come out pretty random on the nail, which is kind of odd. I love BB’s black specks normally, but these just kind of look like maybe I got a piece of dirt on one nail as it dried (see ring finger). The color isn’t my fav on me, it’s a little too nude looking, but it would be prettier on darker skin tones I think. This was three coats.
Adam is a milk chocolate brown/olive green-ish color with heavy pink and gold shimmer. OH YEAH BABY, this is what I’m talking about! What’s not to love? It’s a really unique color, the shimmer is fantastic and it applied like butter. This here is my fav 🙂 It was two coats.
Romeo is a pinkish brick red and sprinkled with silver and pink duochrome shimmer. This is a color I can say I definitely didn’t like one iota in the bottle but when I applied it I totally feel in love. It’s SO fabulous on and not like anything else I can think of either. This was two coats.
Michael is a deep purple/grey with pink, purple and blue shimmer. What’s unique and pretty about this one compared to a lot of other purples I have with these same shimmer colors is the base color. Normally it’s a blurple or indigo base, but this is a really deep kind of muted greyed out purple. Me like!!!!! This was two coats.
Anthony is a deep navy blue with heavy light blue and pink shimmer. The light blue shimmer gives it a much brighter look and it’s really pretty. It reminds me of the sea and submarines for some reason. ??? No clue why. This was two coats.
Clyde is a medium bright green jelly. Where to start? This color is amazing. When I saw it I thought it was going to be a streaky mess, ala some of Nfu Oh’s recent green cremes/jellies I tried. I also somehow expected it to be way darker on the nail. I was wrong on both counts. Happily this applied like a dream! It was pretty even coverage and really nice consistency. After just two coats I wound up with what I have above, and it’s pretty even. I could have used one more coat for total perfection. It didn’t pool as I had expected either. It’s really bright and shiny also. I am very impressed with this one! Oh and before you ask, no this is nothing like NARS Zulu. 🙂
This is a really great collection filled with unique colors as per usual for BB Couture. They really have some of the coolest colors out there and jeez, HOW many greens do I have now? A ton and I don’t ever want them to stop! 🙂 The must haves for me here are Adam, Romeo, Michael and Clyde.
Stay tuned for the ladies half soon!
What do you think about these colors?
