I first saw the SpaRitual Wander collection for fall 2014 online when looking at what was new at Ulta. A few of these shades SCREAMED at me, so I went to check them out in person. They did not disappoint.
This collection features six new shades all with a “sandy matte” finish. I picked up the three that appealed to me the most. I actually didn’t even notice these were supposed to be this matte texture until I swatched the first one, then looked at the bottom of the bottle where it clearly said “sandy matte shimmer”. On their own they have a very slight sandy texture, not anywhere near as textured as most other brands though. They just look dull and kind of blah, like they are begging for a shiny top coat. So I’ve swatched them with a top coat so you can really see the shimmer coming through. It’s magical!
SpaRitual polishes have such a great formula and these are just as good as I remembered. They are smooth, apply perfectly and cover in two coats. And in case you weren’t aware, SpaRitual is cruelty-free, three-free and vegan.
Arroyo is a dusty mauve/pink with golden shimmer. This is a somewhat subtle looking shade for my skin tone, but it’s still pretty. I think it would look really great on those with darker skin tones because it would stand out more.
Nomad is a khaki green with gold and pink shimmer. Uh. My. Gah. This is insanity people, insanity! This color is everything. The base color is amazing and the gold and pink shimmer is mesmerizing. I’m in love.
Starry Night is a rich chocolate brown with gold and copper shimmer. Blargh, another stunner! I love me a chocolate brown, and the shimmer is just amazing! Delish.
What do you think about these? See anything you are lusting for?
