Overall this collection is gorgeous. I've been all about matte lately. My favorite is definitely Sue! Formula wise they all apply pretty smooth. Aspen and Sue are more sheer than the rest but they're beautiful and surprisingly their formula was great as well. I had some trouble with Iris. She didn't seem to self level well for me at all and you can see some brush strokes in my swatch. I do intent to wear these with the matte velvet top coat so hopefully that won't be an issue. Iris is right in the middle of Harlow and Savita from last years collection regarding the color shade.

These all have the same pretty pearly micro-shimmer in them and I've seen them with top coat and that shimmer really pops. I did some quick stamping swatches and they all seem to stamp well too. The colors seemed to be lighter when stamped. So if you're asking if you need them, yes you do need them!


I cant't wait to rock these through the holidays! Are you guys in the holiday spirit yet? Which one is your favorite shade? Let me know what you think?

  11. I love that they stamp. I had major staining issues with Yves, so I may use the rest of the collection for stamping now instead
