After the happy swatchapalooza that has been Zoya’s Zang Toi LE trio and the entire PixieDust set, I’m taking a break today. But I want to point you towards some swatches of brand new collections from other bloggers, collections that I won’t be getting.
First up, months ago I posted about the OPI set to go with the new movie “Oz: The Great and Powerful.” The PolishAholic has all the colors and gorgeous swatches & photos as usual. No offense to her whatsoever but I am completely underwhelmed by this bland set. The cremes are boring, the glitters look too chunky, and the one matte texture looks like — sorry — dirt.
Another set that many people (judging by my site stats) are excited about is the Madison Ave-hue Collection from Essie. Blogger Miss Lipgloss has them! Check out her swatches of all six here. The page is in another language, Dutch I believe, but you don’t need to know it to appreciate her wonderful photos. As far as I can tell, they’re all cremes except she says the title shade, the dark pink Madison Ave-hue, has a slight shimmer. Pretty colors but nothing I don’t already have. If you wanted a really bright orange-red I think that one looks good, and I like the dark pink and the blue too.
Thanks with putting up with my laziness today! Tomorrow — has The Silver Nail actually truly finally found a Chanel Skyline dupe???
