Zoya has pulled it off again!
The Wicked half of the Wonderful Wicked collection for this fall is 6 shades of hotness!
The fun part is that after seeing swatches on many of my favorite blogs I've figured out that these seem to apear to change accourding to both the lighting and the skin tone of the wearer.
Kym is one that every blog that has swatched it has described it differently.
From brown toned red to mauve/red and guess what I'm going to add one more description to the list.
To me Kym looks like a warm orange toned red with gold sparks mixed in.
A very pretty shade but not a great color on me.
Carrie Ann is a pink toned red. A very pretty shade but nothing super special.
Karina is a medium neutral toned red. My best description would be a metallic version of Ruby Pumps.
Very pretty and would compliment most any skin tone nicely. alas it still another red and with the over 150 reds that I own this is one I do not have a similar or dupe of.
Cheryl is an orange metallic with a black base which makes it appear more brown on me.
I am not fond of oranges or browns so while this is a very unique shade and quite pretty it looks like yuck on me. :o(
Edyta is a foresty green with mega gold shimmer.
Edyta is the super hot sister with the ugly name. It's like being introduced to a gorgeous jaw dropping woman who has a nerdy, ugly name, lol I love Edyta despite the name, she is unique, lovely and as the light shifts you see an entirely different side of her.
Julieanne is a medium blue based purple with hot pink shimmer!
I could not for the life of me get the pink shimmer to show in pics, it insisted on pretending to be silver.
It has that lit from withing quality that I love and I don't have a single color close to this one!
The formula is very nice. It can play games occasionally trying to be slightly runny but a minute uncapped solves this. Application was pretty nice for metallics. These are a chunkier metallic than the traditional so I had no brush stroke issues at all. All in all a very pretty fall collection!
