Sinful Colors Snow Me White

Hey guys! It’s Tuesday and I’m flying back after my visit to Philly. I’ll keep this short and sweet on a basic shade. Today’s post is on Sinful Colors Snow Me White.

Sinful Colors Snow Me White

Described as “bright white”, this is another one of the 7 shades from their Having A Blast Collection for 4th of July. Even thought this belongs to that collection, it’s an all-year round shade. Everyone needs a good white and this is a good one to have. Formula is thinner than expected and first coat went on patchy. It evened out with another coat though. I just kinda really expected it to be opaque by looking at the bottle. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

I don’t use white that much but when I do it’s usually for a base of a neon shade to make it much brighter so it really pops.

Sinful Colors is available at various retailers and drugstores such as Walmart, Target, CVS, and Walgreens. They have a list of retailers up on their website here. They’re usually priced at $1.99 but you can score some for as low as $0.99 each when there is a BOGO promo or some special pricing on these.

Caronia Taupe

Happy Monday! This is another scheduled post cause I’m still out-of-town but I hope y’all had a great weekend. Here’s my take on Caronia Taupe.

Caronia Taupe

Taupe belongs to one of the few color groups that just doesn’t call out to me. With that said, I am surprised that it didn’t look that bad at all against my skin tone. It’s pretty opaque, creamy and dries fast. It’s almost opaque at just one coat for me. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

This is available in all leading department stores, supermarkets, drugstores, and health & beauty shops in the Philippines nationwide. You can also check out other shades from their core collection online. They also carry some hand and foot care items.

Pure Ice After Hours

Hey guys! Happy Friday! Hope you’re all ready for the July 4th celebrations. I am actually flying out in a few hours to visit my cousins in Philly. I can’t wait to meet my youngest cousin’s first son and hang out with my other cousins and their families. I will be missing out on the last days of the Bath & Body Works sale (most items were further reduced to 75% off on Wednesday) but I got pretty much what I wanted except for a few things so I don’t mind as much. I am slightly unsettled about the new pocketbac shape as I have several of the current pocketbac holders. I’ll just buy the big antibac and refill the bottles I suppose. This means the current style of pocketbac holders and the pocketbacs themselves are going for 75% off in most places! But anyway, I hope y’all will have a great 3-day weekend and I’ll leave you guys in this post with Pure Ice After Hours.

Pure Ice After Hours

I really could’ve sworn that I already own the shade in this name but it certainly wasn’t a pink crème. After Hours has a slightly thin formula but it applied nicely over my nail with more coats. It’s a nice shade for the summer and I can picture them looking really cute on toes whether by the pool or the beach. The glossy finish is a nice touch for sure. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby

Hey guys! It’s Tuesday and the week is chugging along nicely for a short week. I’ll be flying out Friday night to Philly to visit my cousins there. The youngest just had her first baby and I can’t wait to meet the little guy! The eldest is pregnant and due in October I believe. It will be a short but busy trip for me. I’ll probably schedule a post or 2 to cover the days I’m away. Today’s post is on Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby.

Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby

Described as “a classic deep red”, this is another one of the 7 shades from their Having A Blast Collection for 4th of July. This is the red in that collection and it’s the perfect red for 4th of July festivities. It’s a bit sheerer than I thought it would be as I can still see VNL at 2 coats. It just looked more opaque in the bottle. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

Zoya Island Fun Swatches

Thank goodness it’s the weekend! Does anyone else feel like I do today? I got a lot of stuff done at work today and I’m looking forward to just relaxing while squeezing in a few household chores in between. In random order for today’s post, here are swatches for Zoya Island Fun Collection.

First up is Demetria.

Zoya Demetria

Demetria caught my eye immediately being that it’s a red. Red is still my favorite color to date. This is a beautiful crème shade that’s pretty opaque but still needed more than one coat. It is described as “a vibrant poppy red in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula”. It applied very nicely for me. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Next up is Jace.

Zoya Jace

Jace is a nice light green crème shade. This is described as “a modern tropical green in a full coverage formula” and “a green that is more muted than lime and surprisingly wearable”. Formula is good and creamy. It evened out really nicely with the second coat. Shown is 2 generous coats with no top coat.

Then we have Talia.

Zoya Talia

Talia is a bright blue crème that brings me back to my vacation back in April. This is surprisingly my favorite from this collection. It is described as ” a true turquoise in a full coverage, densely pigmented cream formula”. The website also makes a note that this is a stainer and I can attest to that (although I didn’t read that first and wish I had!). Formula is buttery and applied beautifully. Shown is one generous coat with no top coat.

Next up is Nana.

Zoya Nana

Nana is a beautiful fuchsia crème. It is described as “a deep summer fuchsia in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula”. Formula is comparable to the other shades in this collection. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Up next is Cecilia.

Zoya Cecilia

Cecilia is one that I’m pretty sure will be popular because it’s a teal. It is described as “a classic teal in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula”. This one also has a warning for being a stainer according to the website and I experienced that with this as well. Formula is super creamy that it applied like butter. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Last up is Serenity.

Zoya Serenity

Serenity is a purple crème shade. It is described as “a summer purple in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula” and “reminiscent of beautiful blooming irises, a harbinger of summer”. This shade is pretty opaque with a nice formula but I still should’ve used at least 2 coats. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

These shades would work well for the summer and look great on toes especially while you’re in your swimwear!
