China Glaze Eye Candy Swatches
I finally got swatches done! I was actually really excited about this collection. It didn’t impress me as much as I thought it would, but it’s not a disappointing collection at all. After all, these are glitters and glitters are almost always a WIN in my book. I’ll be showing these in the order of the press release.
First up is Love Marilyn.
The description of “vivacious red with shimmering silver particles” is pretty much spot on. Love Marilyn is a beautiful red glitter shade with a dash of silver in it. I do believe that every collection should have a red. Application is tricky for me with this one. It leans on the thinner side compared to all the other shades in this collection, but it’s not unmanageable. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Next shade up is Blonde Bombshell.
Blonde Bombshell is a gold glitter shade. It is made up of the common gold glitter with some larger round hex-shaped glitter. It’s a very pretty shade, but nothing really new from what we’ve all seen. Formula was pretty good for this one. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Then we have Lorelei’s Tiara.
“Sterling silver infused with blue sprinkles” is how this one is described. This is the shade that I surprisingly loved. I didn’t think much about it when I saw the preview pictures, but this is one of my favorites from the entire collection. Application was a breeze with this one. It went on very nice and smooth. Definitely gave glitters a good name! Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Up next is one that makes me think of Madonna, Material Girl.
Material Girl has basically the same types of glitter as Blonde Bombshell except that the color of the glitters is pink instead of gold. Application was relatively easy for this one and it dried fast. The sunlight shot was taken when the sun was hiding behind the clouds for a while, so that’s the best one I got of it. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Next is my favorite, Some Like It Haute.
Described as “graphite gray with holographic glitter”, Some Like It Haute is made up of gray and silver common glitter with some round hex-shaped holographic glitter in a clear base. As far as I can tell when applying this onto my nails, the base of this is clear. Formula was good, which made application easy. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Last up is Marry A Millionaire.
This one makes me think of Mardi Gras. Marry A Millionaire is the only glitter shade in this collection with bar glitter. The glitters in this shade are gold, purple and bluish green….definitely the reason why it reminds me of Mardi Gras. I absolutely love this shade. Formula is good and it dried very fast. Shown is one thicker coat with no top coat.
Overall, not bad. I was a bit let down with Blonde Bombshell and Material Girl for being just ordinary, but Lorelei’s Tiara and Marry A Millionaire totally caught me by surprise. I really like those 2 a lot. And my favorite of the group, Some Like It Haute, did not disappoint when under the sun.
These are available at ULTA and Sally Beauty Supply stores. Word around is that they’re selling out fast. I didn’t see any left at my ULTA, but check your store or call your Sally Beauty Supply stores for availability.
