The Cirque Colors Spring/Summer 2016 Metropolis Collection features nine shades and I’ve got swatches for you now.
The Metropolis Collection used to be a monthly release, but it will now change to be seasonal to better accommodate international sellers. As with all the shades in this collection, they are inspired by New York. One of these (Rhapsody in Blue) you have seen before under a different name, and it’s a true stunner! The formula was really nice with these, they were just two coats over a ridge filling base coat.

Don’t Forget the Cannoli is an ivory creme.
Whitney is a dusty pink/lilac creme.
Meet Me in Montauk is a pale light blue creme.
Key to Gramercy is a light sage green creme.
Lox and Sable is a salmon pink creme.
Fire Island is a bright orange creme.
Mermaid Parade is a slightly dusty teal green creme.
Rhapsody in Blue is a bright cobalt blue creme. This was previously released under the name Santorini.
Chelsea Girl is a medium purple creme.
Lovely shades! There is a definite distinction between the spring and summer shades here. The spring ones are lovely, light and muted pastels, and the summer ones are more intense and saturated. Of course Rhapsody in Blue is my #1 favorite here, but I also really like Key to Gramercy, Meet Me in Montauk and Mermaid Parade. I also really like Fire Island, it’s such a clean, vivid orange. As usual with Cirque, the formula is really quite good and you only need two coats!
Which of these are your favorites?
