Sinful Colors Green Ocean

Hey guys! I’m knee-deep in Season 3 already of Heroes. I thought my attention would wane but the series managed to grip my attention once again. I will say it’s still nothing like the first season. I guess it’s a mix of the discovery of new characters and them finding out their abilities along with them that contributes to the specialness (is that even a word?) of that season. Anyway, today’s post is on Sinful Colors Green Ocean.

Sinful Colors Green Ocean

Described as “glitter-flecked emerald”, this is one of the 7 shades from their Having A Blast Collection for this past July 4th. Of all the shades in that collection, I find this one sticking out like a sore thumb. I don’t feel like this shade meshes with the rest in the red, blue and white theme. I know for a fact that this shade is brought back over and over again every year for their St. Patrick’s Day collection. Green Ocean is made up of iridescent green shards along with hex shaped glitter in a clear base. This is what I would call a flakie shade than just a plan glitter. On its own it’s really just a hint of flashing shine when the light hits the iridescent flakie and glitter pieces. As always, I feel that they’re best seen over darker shades. It went on great and dries fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

Sinful Colors Paste-erd

I’m so glad it’s Thursday today! I’m so ready for the weekend already. I wanted to catch up on my household stuff as well as just relax. I managed to finish the entire first season of Heroes just yesterday. I know, I know….I’m like years behind but I enjoy going through series on marathons like this. I hate having to wait until next week to see what happens (and worse, next season!). I love being able to plow through them but I will tell you that I’m at a good stopping point right now. I guess it’s the Law of Diminishing Returns that came into effect at this point. Anyway, today’s post is on Sinful Colors Paste-erd.

Sinful Colors Paste-erd

Described as “night-sky navy with periwinkle glitter”, this is one of the 3 shades from their Graffiti Bomb Glitters Collection for Summer 2015. This shade is made up of sky or light and black hex glitter speckled with black round and smaller hex glitter as well as some black tinsel or bar glitter in a clear base (I see black and not navy….). Just like Writing On The Wall, I did have to fish out the glitters a little bit and intentionally position them with the brush. It dried fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

Caronia Rouge

Happy Monday! Hope you guys have a good start to this week. It’s a busy one for me. But anyway, here’s my take on Caronia Rouge.

Caronia Rouge

Rouge makes me think of brick red when I’m just looking at the bottle. With that said, I actually like it on me more than I originally thought. It’s not as opaque as I thought it would be so I just added more coats. Formula is quite think but still applied nicely. It’s probably just my bottle though as I’ve had this for about 2 years now and just finally got around to using it. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

Sinful Colors Pink Ansen

Hey guys! It’s the midweek again and again I’m counting down the days til the weekend! Today’s post is on Sinful Colors Pink Ansen.

Sinful Colors Pink Ansen

Described as “jagged glitter in punchy pink”, this is one of the 29 shades from their Street Fusion Collection for Summer 2015. I really liked this shade in the bottle but it fell flat when applied alone as you can see below. Some glitter shades look absolutely stunning still on its own but this isn’t one of them. I think it’s because of the kind of glitter really — it’s like translucent iridescent glitter in a very light pink tinted base. The glitter itself has a tinge of yellow to it as you can see in the under shade lighting shots below. It looked exponentially better over another shade (as you will see if you keep scrolling towards the bottom of this post). The glitter is packed so there’s no need for me fishing out pieces like Writing On The Wall. Formula is good it dried fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

Caronia Cherry Bomb

How are y’all doing? Today’s post is on another shade from a brand that’s in the land of my birth. It’s quite a beauty and one of my favorites from them. Here’s Caronia Cherry Bomb.

Caronia Cherry Bomb

Cherry Bomb is classified as a frost according to them and I really don’t see it. Frosts are usually the ones that leaves brush stroke lines and this one doesn’t. This one has a glass fleck finish to me. It dried really fast and is extremely easy to apply. It’s slightly sheer but more coats took care of that. I was expecting it to be more of a deep cherry red based on the name as it’s more pink (more like fuchsia) than anything else. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.
