So.. I really wanted to post a few Etudes that are freaking amazeballs but none of my swatches turned out right D: The pics are just so craptastic that I really can't bring myself to post them. Luckily for me, the mailman came to my rescue! He arrived with my lovely Cherry Culture order! And right after I read this post by Kaz as well. Talk about awesome timing!
So these Glitter Addicts... they are BOSS. Holy crap. LA Girl really outdid themselves. I pretty much ran back to the CC website and ordered a whole lot more the second I opened up my parcel.
Here are the ones I got..
I love LA Girl bottles. The thick layer of glass at the base makes them really bottom heavy. They're really nice to hold. And on an even more superficial note than that... how incredibly awesome is the font on these? LOVE!
The whole line consists of small and large hex glitter in varying colours suspended in a clear base. They're probably dense enough to use on their own in 3-4 coats but I like them layered.
All swatches are one coat over a base
Animate over The Face Shop BL605. I can't stand how pretty this is! Possibly the least unique - Diamond Cosmetics Chunky Red Glitter and Wet n Wild Prancer look dupey. Also, even though it's different, Deborah Lippmann Ruby Red Slippers (one of my all time favourites!) really comes to mind.
Jostle over Bloom Montreal. Jostle is a really nice dark blue glitter. I love the way the glitter looks when it hits the light. It's like it's glowing! I didn't do a good job picking out a base colour for this one though. I think it'd look much better over a light blue.
Eutopia over China Glaze Happy Go Lucky. Eutopia is a little less blue than my pictures are showing here though it still definitely leans on the blue side of purple. I love this over yellow!
Uninhibited over Ulta3 Allure. Saved the best till last! HOLY CRAP BLACK GLITTER! ... AN AWESOME BLACK GLITTER! *coughFunkyChunkycough* It has soothed my lemming for Revlon Streetwear Black Widow a little bit. I love this over Allure. I totally stole the idea off a lovely lady who posted her mani of Black Widow over a nude. It's just too awesome. I can't even... *dies*
