Sinful Cloud 9 Nail Lacquer

Sinful Cloud 9 Nail Lacquer ($1.99 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a bright tangerine orange with gold-tangerine shimmer. I don’t have a shade that looks quite like this with shimmer, but China Glaze Papaya Punch is just a bit darker, while China Glaze Sun Worshipper is closer (though lighter) but lacks the shimmery element of Cloud 9–and I think the shimmer is what makes it stand out. China Glaze Riveting is much more of a fiery orange-red.

The color coverage wasn’t quite opaque after two coats, but it was close enough that I would not feel a third coat was necessary. I only get visible nail line in some lighting at certain angles. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, and I really liked the application on this shade–a very happy thing after the frustration of Sinful HD Nails. I do get a week of wear out of Sinful’s formula, though there is minor to noticeable tip wear after seven days (but no chipping!).

Glowing skin, sparkling eyes and lush lips. Bobbi Brown’s new Brightening Nudes Collection creates an effect that’s sheer and luminous—as if you’re naturally lit-from-within.  Available now.

Sparkle Eye Shadow ($28.00)

Sparkle Eye Shadow is a featherweight formula that instantly lights up eyes with a unique combination of shimmering pearls and glitter in a translucent base. Creamy-soft powder shadow glides on smoothly and clings to lids for crease-free, long-lasting wear. The Brightening Nudes Collection includes four new, beautifully sheer pastel shades in pink, silvery white, grey and soft gold that illuminate eyes with subtle shimmer and shine.

  • Silver Moon Light silvery glitter
  • Mica Deep heather grey
  • Ballet Light pink glitter
  • Sunlight Warm golden glitter

Sheer and silky, Brightening Finishing Powder features six luminous shades that blend together and illuminate the skin for a beautifully natural, healthy finish. Formulated with Mulberry, Grape, Scutelleria and Gentian Root Extracts, this innovative formula instantly brightens the skin with a wash of skin-tone correct color, while the soft texture perfectly sets makeup without feeling heavy or weighed down. To instantly brighten the complexion, blend all the shades together with a Face Blender or Powder Brush and apply to cheeks, forehead, nose and chin. Encased in a stunning square portable compact for easy on-the-go application.

Brightening Lip Gloss ($23.00)

  • Lilac Pearl Lavender pink with pearl
  • Pink Opal Pink with opal pearl
  • Pink Lilac Pale icy pink violet

Crystal Glitter Lip Gloss ($18.00)

An updated version of a perennial Bobbi favorite, Crystal Glitter Lip Gloss is formulated with glitter for the perfect amount of sparkle. The clear, high-shine formula is the easiest way to instantly enhance lips–wear it alone for a naturally luscious look, or layer it over your favorite Bobbi Brown lipstick for added brilliance. Comes in an easy-squeeze tube that makes it ideal for at home or on-the-go.

Nubar Sun Gold Nail Lacquer

Nubar Sun Gold Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a fiery orange-red with golden orange shimmer. This is a duochrome finish, so depending on the viewing angle, the polish can look more like a pink-red that fades to orange or more of a gold, orange, and tangerine quality. The strength of the duochrome is nice–you can definitely see it and have fun with it in all types of lighting. I could not think of a dupe for this one! The duochrome really does make it a more unique shade. Nubar Pink Flame was the only thing that came to mind, but it is very different (though it is a duochrome), because it is much, much redder.
