If you’ve been around for a while now, you’ll know that Orosa Beauty has just captured my heart. (I know I say this about a lot of brands, okay). I can’t even remember how I found them, I think they popped up on my Instagram, and it’s been history since. There’s just something about those little square bottles that is just so satisfying. They might not be the most exciting to others, but there’s forever something about a cream shade that’ll always get me. Call me Master of Cream. Is that weird? Okay sorry I’m done let’s just talk about the polish.
This is the ‘Freshly Picked’ collection and it’s Orosa’s release for Spring 2021. As always, it includes 6 creams, and we have some lovely muted shades, with some berries, oranges, yellows and greens. I love the color palette on this collection and was so excited to grab it when it released!
You can grab them off of the Orosa Beauty website for $9 each, or $45 for the whole set of 6 creams. Let’s get right into the swatches!
Listen, I too often jokingly say to my mother that if she had put me in ballet from a young age, I could be a STAR at this point. I have flexibility and weird feet, it could have worked, okay. Who hasn’t had a dream of being a professional ballerina? There’s a dance studio that just opened near my apartment and once it’s safe to do again, I’m DANCING.
All of these rambles have a point, I promise. They all connect to the newest collection we’re looking at today. This is the ‘Curtain Call’ release from Orosa Beauty, which they say is inspired by “the mesmerizing movement of ballet”. “Get ready for light and airy hues paired with rich jewel tones that will have you dreaming of whimsical performances all winter long.” I love a ballet inspired theme, and I think this color story fits very well. And of course, it just reminds me of my dreams.
It features 5 cream shades and 1 shimmer. I grabbed this from the Orosa beauty website during their end of year 30% off sale. The shades retail for $12 each, or $62 for the full set of 6.
As mentioned many times before, I stick to mainstream brands with this blog and my reviews. The indie world is so large and expansive that I’m not even sure where to start! And I know my wallet wouldn’t be able to handle expanding fully into indie reviews as well 😂 (There are so many great reviewers already doing entirely indie-specific posts, so definitely check them out!)
But there are a couple smaller brands now that I just enjoy, and have expanded to reviewing consistently on the blog! And one of them includes Orosa Beauty. They might not technically be “indie” in the way of one person handmixing polishes, but they are still a smaller independent nail polish brand. I did receive a couple collections in PR, but even now when I’m not, I still purchase them to try out as I just enjoy their polishes. It’s just something about those square bottles that are so pretty.
So we’re looking at their Fall 2020 release today! This is the ‘Night Train’ collection and features 6 cream shades. I know cream finishes might not be the most exciting for everyone, but it seems like Orosa is building up a good catalogue of cream shades before branching out into other finishes. Listen, I love all polishes equally so I’ll never say no to a solid cream formula.
I grabbed this off of their website for $60 for all 6 polishes. You do save the price of one polish when purchasing the full set, otherwise each shade retails for $12.
Woo-hoo we’re actually all caught up on blog posts currently! We love that! And yes, okay that might seem like a standard thing for a blog. But I mean it mainly in the way that I have all of the posts up to match what’s on my Instagram. Since the posts take a little longer I usually have swatches up on Instagram first with the full review and blog post coming after. (Small plug to follow me on Instagram too – you’ll find the link at the end of every post!) And now we’re all synced up! Let me have the small victories, okay.
I’ve also been hauling a ton of polish lately, so be prepared for lots more posts on this way!
Okay, okay I’m done, I’ll start talking about the polish pictured already.
We’re looking at the newest collection from Orosa Beauty. This is called the Cool Heat collection, and is their traditional 6 piece size, featuring 6 new cream shades. The shades retail for $12 each, or the full 6 piece bundle retails for $62 on their website.
Orosa Beauty was so kind to send over 3 of the shades, and then I went ahead and bought the other 3! As always, they sent the PR to me with no strings attached – I was not obligated to post or review these, and I chose to myself. And as always, even though it’s PR, it’s all of my own honest thoughts and feelings. As you can see, I would still buy this collection even if it wasn’t sent! Alright disclaimers over, let’s look at the polishes!
Listen, I got a wee bit behind on my posts, so you’re about to get like 4 in a row as I finally catch up. It’s quarantine y’all and we aren’t shaming people for not being productive here. But every so often the productive bug hits here, and I have to hold onto it AS LONG AS I CAN.
So on this post, we’re talking about Orosa Beauty baybeeee. They were kind enough to send on over to me the 2nd half of their Desert Garden collection. The first 3 shades released in the beginning of March, and now we’re looking at the 2nd 3 shades to be released! It features 3 bright cream shades inspired by the tones of the desert, and I couldn’t wait to pop these suckers onto my nails. (And as always, even though they were kindly gifted to me, all opinions are honest and my own.)
These are available on the Orosa Beauty website for $12 each, or $62 when you buy the full collection.
IT’S FINALLY GETTING WARMER HERE. Okay, it’s supposed to get up to 50s and even 60s this weekend, and that’s WARM for down here after this long winter. I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited for a spring since I’ve moved down here. I don’t want to hear about you guys already hitting 80s and 90s down in the southern states there, KEEP IT QUIET. The sunshine is more precious up here in this Midwestern little bubble.
But since we’re finally actually getting sunshine, it’s time to continue looking at spring collections! Today we have the Orosa Beauty Desert Garden trio that they’re calling a ‘Pre-Spring’ set. A little transition set to pull us out of these gray days into warmer days. It features 3 cream shades!
Orosa Beauty was kind enough to send these on over to me to swatch up for you guys! I’m still always so thankful when I get polish from brands, and it’ll just never get old. But of course, I’ll always be honest about formulas and performance.
These are available on the Orosa Beauty website for $12 each, or $31 if you buy the set of 3! (And orders over $30 ship for free, just to enable further). But of course, let’s look at the swatches first, and then you can decide if you need them!
I first won a giveaway of Orosa Beauty’s fall collection, which is how I got to try out their formula originally. I fell in love with the shades then, and the square bottles just get me for some reason. They feel so classy and just so pretty on display. And of course, the polishes inside are gorgeous as well.
They’ve been so lovely to send me more of their shades, and I’m so thankful! I love getting to try out more of their shades, and am very tempted to pick up the rest of them off their website… Stay strong, Quinn.
Anyways, let’s look at this newest little bundle they sent me!
They call this the ‘Winter Blues’ and “it’s the only winter blues you need”. Living in Chicago where it’s just so dang cold and GRAY, I fully identified with that. It’s a selection of 5 of their cream shades, that’ll pair together in a lovely little combo mani.
I already had 2 of these shades previously, so the duplicates will be moving onto a good home with a friend. But I was excited to try out 3 new shades! I showed individual swatches of the polishes included, as well as some manis at the end!
Now that it’s December (where has the time gone???) I basically go from 0-100 with Christmas loving. I go from hating all mention of Christmas before Thanksgiving, then to immediately decorating my apartment and getting everything festive. I battled with decorations (and knocking over 3 plant pots in the process) and got my apartment all cozy and decorated up today! Have you started decorating for Christmas?
And so with that mindset it’s only appropriate that we talk about new winter shades from Orosa Beauty!
I recently won a giveaway of their fall collection, and ended up loving the cream shades in that one. And then I was so pleasantly surprised when this box of new shades showed up on my doorstep as well! I wasn’t expecting it at all, and was so grateful that they decided to send them over to me! But of course, even with products that are sent to me, I’ll always post my honest opinion! Wanted to be thankful but also up front!
These are 3 new releases for Winter from Orosa Beauty! They’re a new polish brand that started this year, and I’ve been loving their shades. There’s just something about that square bottle that gets me, and I just want to hold them and look at them. Have you ever had that.
They released 3 shades, 2 creams and 1 topper for their winter collection. These retail for $12 each on the Orosa Beauty website or for $31 for the set of 3!
Hey-oooo this is our last fall collection to talk about! Isn’t that crazy to think about? And then I’m almost “on time” for all of the holiday collections 😂 I know it’s crazy to think about, but all the brands are in full on holiday mode, so that is the ONE PLACE I will allow holidays early. Otherwise all Christmas music has to wait until December 1st and we’re not forgetting about Thanksgiving here. Rules are rules.
So let’s talk about this last fall collection shall we? Our last grasp on the 60 degree wonderful last sunny days in this blog (I miss those days, it’s already down to 40s and gray here).
I have the Fall collection today from Orosa Beauty! This is a new to me brand, and a newer overall brand to discuss. This brand started this year, and this is now their 2nd collection they’ve released, after a Summer collection. I had seen posts, but hadn’t been truly dialed into their releases until this fall collection. It’s full of stunning cream shades and some beautiful deeper colors.
And then I was tagged in a giveaway they were doing, and I won! This is the first giveaway I ever won on Instagram, so I was so dang excited! (Is this what it’s like to win the lottery). The brand was so kind, and they told me I won on Thursday and the package with the polishes was already to me two days later on Saturday! I was so impressed, and the polishes are just so cute (there’s just something about those square bottles that gets me.
This is their Fall 2019 collection and features 6 cream shades – 1 more sheer, and the rest are full creams. They retail for $12 each on the Orosa Beauty website.
