The Formula X #ColorCurators Makeup By Rose XOXO Edition has arrived at Sephora stores and I’ve got swatches and my thoughts about it now!
First of all if you don’t know (and I didn’t) Makeup By Rose is a makeup YouTube-er, blogger and musician. Her trio reflects the summer to autumn color transition, and includes three new limited edition creme shades. The formula for all three of these was really nice. Each one was only two coats and they covered very evenly and smoothly.
Are they unique though?
Mahhvelous Rose is a light dusty mauve creme.
Puffin! is a light mink grey creme.
Acoustic Dreams is a deep glossy chocolate brown/burgundy creme.
Alrighty so here are my thoughts about these. I actually think all are nice colors and like them. The formula was really good and just a two coat coverage is always a bonus. Do I think they are unique shades? No. Actually that’s not 100% accurate. I do think Mahhvelous Rose might be sort-of unique. I can’t think of any I have exactly like it, but probably some that are sorta similar. Puffin! and Acoustic Dreams aren’t very unique though, especially Puffin! With literally hundreds and hundreds of nail polish brands out there now (especially indies) it’s probably hard to come up with truly original cremes nowadays. Having said that though, I do still like these a lot and would definitely buy Puffin! and Acoustic Dreams if I didn’t have similar ones already.
You can find these only at Sephora and they are $12.50 each.
See anything here you are thinking of getting?
