OCC Palare Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “deep fuchsia with blue/violet duochrome.” If you love eyeshadows like MAC Stars ‘n Rockets or Urban Decay Fishnet, you’ll love this polish version. It’s a fuchsia pink with iridescent violet and fuchsia shimmer that becomes more or less pronounced depending on the angle of the nail and the lighting conditions. The duochrome is definitely there, but it is on the subtler side.
Guerlain Les Ombres de Nuit 4-Colour Palette ($59.00 for 0.25 oz.) includes shades of silver, teal, navy blue, and black. Three of the shades have shimmery finishes, while one shade has a matte finish and can be used also as an eyeliner. It’s a limited edition palette from Guerlain’s holiday collection.
Debuting on September 15th (for North America), Posh Paradise also features ten new and limited edition hues of Mattene Lipsticks ($14.50 for 0.08 oz. each). I have four of them to share with you today. They are: Delectable (orange-beige), Deliciously Forbidden (mid-tone berry), Eden Rouge (bright blue-red), and Legendary (mid-tone brick red).
Debuting on September 15th (for North America), Posh Paradise contains eight new and limited edition (but of course!) paint pots. Each paint pot retails for $17.50. I wish I had more to share with you, but these are the only two paint pots I received! I’m flying to NYC this AM and as soon as I have a free moment, I hope to stop by the PRO store to pick up all of the remaining products but please, please be patient – I would really appreciate it! The two I have to show you are: Hyperviolet (deep violet) and Imaginary (blackened navy).
Guerlain Nuit d’Amour (170) Rouge Automatique ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “black red that reveals an intense plum color.” It’s definitely a shade that will intimidate at glance; it looks burgundy-brown-black with twinkles of ruby shimmer in the tube, but it’s so, so different when swatched or worn. The description sounds like they did this deliberately (“reveals”). It’s reddish-pink burgundy with hints of plum and ruby micro-shimmer. Even though the shimmer is there, it’s so fine and sparse that it’s rather subtle. MAC Rebel is redder and brighter. Guerlain Bee looks quite similar on, but it has less red in it (and more opacity). YSL Forbidden Burgundy is a little brighter and redder but still rather similar.
Guerlain Perles de Nuit Meteorites ($56.00 for 1.05 oz.) is a limited edition highlighter that uses a mix of “pearls” in five different shades to “correct, illuminate, and even out the skin.” The mix contains pink “to capture light,” white to “illuminate the complexion,” gold to “reflect light,” orange to “boost radiance,” and silver to “add shimmer without whitening the skin.”
