I was so excited to be receiving my Zoya Entice & Ignite Collections media samples today. The FedEx site said my box was “out for delivery,” then when I checked again later it said it was delivered, but… it wasn’t. At least not to my house.
I don’t know where my package is, but it sure isn’t here. I’ve searched my front porch several times, and it doesn’t even have any hiding places anyway. So I’ve called FedEx to put a trace on the box and we’ll see what happens. Sure hope I don’t have to wait a week for replacements, but if I do, I do. It’s a real first-world problem, isn’t it?
To keep my fingers polished and my blog occupied while we wait, how about that 99¢ Sinful Colors sale at Walgreens I mentioned yesterday? You just know I had to drop in. Didn’t see any new fall collections but one shade called Rich in Heart (#265) was definitely calling my name.
Rich in Heart is a shimmery, vampy, blackened color, great for fall or winter. The base is sheer black and it’s packed with a shimmer that defies definition. Dark red? Plum? Brown? Yes to all three.
The formula was good, first coat was a little streaky but the second coat covered very well. Shiny, too. Two views under indirect outdoor light and then with the fill flash:
You can see in the bottle, especially in the second photo, how it seems to be several different colors.
I LOVE Rich in Heart, especially heading into fall, and at 99 cents, it rivals polishes that cost ten times as much. Happy hunting at the Walgreens sale!
EDIT: Dupe alert. The only polishes I have — and believe me, I own a ton of reds from pale to dark — that could be considered duplicates for Rich in Heart are two that are unavailable. Dear John from the February 2013 SquareHue subscription box is long gone, and Caroline from Julep is currently out of stock. Even if Caroline was in stock, it costs $11-$14 for a tiny bottle of it. Rich in Heart, like all Sinful Colors, is a full 0.5 oz/15 ml.
