BB Couture’s Infamous Lovers collection is twelve colors in total with 6 being “the men” and 6 being “the women”.
I reviewed the men the other day and today I have the other half.
Normally I think of the women as being the better half (haha), but not in this case. While there are some colors here I like, I am definitely feeling the men’s side much more.
I feel like some of the colors here just weren’t as saturated and deep as I would have liked. The formula was good, though a few did need three coats, and a couple were a little gritty without a top coat.
Pocahontas is a medium taupe base with micro-glitter in silver and pretty sparse pieces of black glitter. I like this color, but kind of wish there was more of the black glitter to make it extra interesting. This went on a little sheer and seemed more watery than the others. This was three coats.
Juliet is a medium rose pink with extremely subtle silver shimmer and again, very sparse black glitter flecks. I hate to say this but in all honesty I think this color is atrocious. I just completely abhor it for some reason. It reminds me of a really depressing color from the 1970’s. It doesn’t look good with my skin either. This was three coats.
Cleopatra is a blue/green with heavy light blue shimmer. Gorgeous and mermaid-y! It doesn’t remind me of Cleopatra, but it’s really pretty, so I could care less. This was really buttery and nice going on. This was two coats.
Eve is a mossy green base with heavy green and pink micro-glitter. This one had to grow on me because at first I wasn’t convinced. It goes on really thin, sheer and kind of ugly. But after three coats the base is deeper and even, and I like it. It’s definitely unique to their other greens (of which they have a million) so that’s always a plus. What I don’t love it is does dry a bit gritty. But a top coat will help resolve most of the texture issues.
Carla is a dark royal purple with heavy pink and more subtle light blue shimmer. I have 12,000 polishes in a color just like this or very similar. I love it, it’s so pretty, but it’s been done. This was two coats.
Bonnie is a medium, yet bright forest green with light green micro-glitter. I felt the same about this one as I did with Eve at first. It went on patchy and kind of icky, then after three coats it looked nice. I am more partial to deeper or olive greens myself, but this is pretty. This also has the gritty feel so you need a nice top coat. This was three coats.
I like this collection but there was nothing here that I really fell in love with. I think the men’s half was much more interesting, saturated and unique than these ones. I think the must haves would be Eve and Cleopatra. I would completely avoid Juliet altogether. 🙂
What do you think about these colors?
