butter LONDON Blowing Raspberries Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a rich, dark raspberry red–a gorgeous mix of pink and red–with a cream finish.   I used two coats for opaque color.

my thoughts on the formula: This cream finished polish has such a smooth, maneuverable formula–nicely pigmented (needed only two coats) and applies beautifully without bubbling or streaking. It wore for a full seven days without chipping.  The formula was thin without being watery and made for really easy application.

Sugarpill Chromalusts: Birthday Girl, Darling, Magentric

Sugarpill Chromalust ($12.00 for 0.19 oz.) recently launched seven new shades, and I have three of them to show you today: Birthday Girl (sweet princess pink with iridescent fuchsia sparkles), Darling (stunning teal loaded with iridescent turquoise star bursts), and Magentric (metallic deep magenta with a dazzling turquoise sheen).

  • Birthday Girl is a muted cotton candy pink with sparkle.
  • Darling is an iridescent, aqua-teal with soft sheen when worn dry and a more iridescent, metallic finish when applied wet.
  • Magentric is a darkened magenta pink with a soft sheen when used dry and a brighter, metallic finish when used wet.

Chromalusts are loose eyeshadows that are extremely soft and smooth because of how fine these loose powders are milled. The three shades featured in this post are vegan, for reference. They can be worn wet or dry, though I tend to prefer them wet as a base, but they do work nicely dry–though better over a stickier shadow base.
