Sinful Colors Flower Power

Hey guys! It’s Friday! I’ll keep this short and sweet as I’m moving around a lot today. The traveling part of a trip is always the part I hate the most. Today’s post is on another shade from Sinful Colors. Here’s Sinful Colors Flower Power.

Sinful Colors Flower Power

Described as “baby pink speckled with white & fuchsia”, this is one of the 3 shades from their Bloomblast Glitters Collection. In terms of opacity and pigmentation, this is more pigmented than Petal Be The Day but less so than Standing Bloom Only from the same collection. This shade has pink and white glitters in 3 different sizes suspended in a milky pale pink base. The smallest sized glitters are round while the other larger sizes are hex shaped. Formula is good and it dried pretty fast. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

You can use a crème shade under this for greater opacity.

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.

Icing Written In The Stars

Hey guys! How are y’all doing today? Today is the last day of this work week for me. I’m so excited to have a good number of days off to celebrate my first anniversary with my husband! It just so happens to be a few days after my birthday too (that was yesterday). Posts will be more sporadic next week, but I’ll be checking in still of course. Today’s post is on a shade from a store that I don’t go to often enough. Here’s Icing Written In The Stars.

Icing Written In The Stars

I love shades from this store brand. It’s just that the only location I know isn’t that close to me really. I dislike driving on busy highways, so getting to this store requires me going into the city for one of the nicer city malls. I got every shade that I liked when I went to this store the last time I went and I actually ended up with 2 of the same shade. But wait…..the reason why is they looked like 2 different shades! In the last few shots, I put the bottles side by side to show you the difference. This shade is made up of hex and star-shaped glitters suspended in a clear base. The stars are definitely blue and the hex glitters are holographic silver that glistens as it hits the light in different angles. Glitter is not really packed at all as I had to fish and dab on some of the glitter pieces. Formula is nice to work with and it dried pretty fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

As you can see below, one looks to bear more blue glitter and one looks to have more purple. I’m guessing that the blue version is basically one that sat out for a long time under the lights in the store and got discolored maybe? Either way, I like this shade enough that I’m keeping both. When applied, I can’t really tell the difference.

Sinful Colors Standing Bloom Only

Hey guys! It’s the middle of the week again. I’m trying to wrap up some things like taxes and last-minute stuff before my upcoming anniversary-honeymoon trip. We delayed officially going somewhere for our honeymoon cause we had out-of-town guests to take care of for a few days after the wedding. We did go on a mini-trip last year a few months after that. We took a road trip all over a few states to see Yellowstone. I’d do that again in a heartbeat but probably not this year since we have 2 more trips lined up already. Today’s post is on a juicy shade. Here’s Sinful Colors Standing Bloom Only.

Sinful Colors Standing Bloom Only

Described as “a creamy mango with magenta flecks”, this is one of the 3 shades from their Bloomblast Glitters Collection. This is more pigmented than Petal Be The Day from the same collection. With a creamy, milky orange base, the glitters in this shade come in 3 different sizes and are orange and gold. The smallest sized glitters are round while the other larger sizes are hex shaped. It’s pretty much like Petal Be The Day but it’s just an orange creamsicle version of it that’s more opaque. Formula is nice to work with and it dried pretty fast. Shots were taken on a cloudy day. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Sinful Colors Horizon Shine

Described as “high-shine crimson red”, this is one of the 3 shades from their Citrus Twist Collection. This is more pigmented than Zest Of Times from the same collection. If I thought that shade has a glass fleck finish….this is the epitome of what a glass fleck shade is to me. Just look at it. You see these glassy bright bits in the translucent red base. It just glows! Formula is nice to work with and it dried pretty fast. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Sinful Colors Petal Be The Day

Hey guys! It’s the middle of the week again. This week’s sure flying by fast for me. The weather will start changing today and we’re officially more or less in tornado season here. Temperatures will dip for a much cooler weekend. Enough of the sad news, here’s Sinful Colors Petal Be The Day.

Sinful Colors Petal Be The Day

Described as “royal blue and purple confetti”, this is one of the 3 shades from their Bloomblast Glitters Collection. I expected the base for this shade to be more milky and opaque. It’s a wee bit “clearer” than I thought but definitely not a clear base. The glitters in this shade come in 3 different sizes and are lavender and light bluish that’s more like periwinkle than anything else. The smallest sized glitters are round while the other larger sizes are hex shaped. Formula is pretty good and it dried pretty fast. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

I actually like this shade more than I thought I would! For a more opaque milky look, layer this over a lilac crème or even try laying on another coat or 2. It’s a buildable shade.
