OPI Miss Universe is a new limited edition collection featuring just three new shades.
Do I watch Miss Universe? Let’s just say, hell no. Have I ever watched any beauty pageant? No, at least not for more than 5 minutes. In fact, I have a hard time believing they are even still on in this day and age! But that, my friends, is a topic for another day. 😉
While I’m not into beauty pageants or “talent” shows themselves, I did think these shades looked nice and one of them is way better than photos can even show.
Formula wise these were all really good. All were just two coats and applied easily like butta!
I’m Feeling Sashy is a muted, dusty purple creme. It looks more interesting in person somehow than this photo shows it.
Miss You-universe is a very dark blackened plum creme. You can tell it’s a really deep purple rather than black, but it is really quite dark.
This Gown Needs A Crown is a platinum with a new satin finish so you don’t need a top coat. It’s not a sandy-like texture really but more of a soft light texture. It’s rather shiny by itself but you could technically add a top coat. This shade is so much better in person than any photo could show. It’s really deep and so incredibly “blingy”! Each bottle of this shade comes with a bejeweled crown ring.
Overall: I didn’t expect that the silver would be the one I would like the most because usually, a silver is a silver is a silver, if you know what I mean. But this one is really nice! I do also like I’m Feeling Sashy but feel like I’ve seen Miss You-niverse many times before.
Availability: Limited edition and releases in October at Ulta, Regis, Trade Secret, Dillard’s, Pure Beauty, etc.
What do you think of Miss Universe? Anything here appealing to you?
Also just a note about OPI and their cruelty-free status. I just learned that they now sell in China (sorry it took me awhile to hear this!) so they are no longer cruelty free. 🙁
Note: Not cruelty free
