Happy Halloween 31st, y’all! I’ve been spending my evening hiding away from the neighborhood kids because there’s a lot of them, and I have absolutely no candy. Meanwhile, my adult Halloween festivities took place on Saturday.
Did you have any fun plans for Halloween?
And what’s better for Halloween than a Halloween collection review? That’s right, I finally have the Halloween collection from China Glaze! This collection is making quite a buzz in the nail community, and now that I have it I understand why.
Long story short, all the formulas are really nice. So let’s just get right into it.
As soon as I started seeing promo photos for the new Fantasy Makers collection for this year, especially that they had new lipstick shades coming out, I basically had them in my cart and ready to buy on their website. However, I got lucky, and when I walked into Walmart one day, they had a huge 4 sided untouched display of all the products, so I snatched up all of the colors I had my eye on.
They put out a lot more items in this collection that are more specifically geared towards Halloween. I was honestly most interested in the lip products, so that was all I picked up to review today. You can see and buy all of the other products on their website, wetnwildbeauty.com.
They also have 6 shade cream color palettes and 2 cream paint pots for face makeup, stencil packs, body crayons, lip glosses (I’m not a huge lip gloss fan), glitter eyeliners (I wasn’t incredibly wowed by the ones in the Fall collection), colored mascaras, glitter palettes, and new shades of their glitter pigments. So lots of fun colors and items that you can use for great and colorful Halloween looks.
But today I have some shades of the lip products to review!
I’ve been falling a little behind on my Sinful Colors posts – I still have yet to figure out which Walgreens store down here will be my hookup – if you live in the Chicago area (did I mention I live in Chicago now?), lemme know if you have a go-to Walgreens that actually gets in the new Sinful Colors collections.
But before I moved, I did find two of the shades from the Sinful Colors Halloween 2017 collection. This year’s collection is called ‘Night of the Living Red’. It has 2 glow in the dark shades as well as the normal glow in the dark top coat – I didn’t like the glow in the dark shades from last year so I didn’t bother picking them up. It also has 4 repromotes, as well as 4 new shades. I found 2 of the new shades for today. All of the Walgreens stores I went to only had the smaller displays so I never found the other two shades. But they’re called ‘If You’ve Got it Haunt It’ and ‘Pumpkin Spice’.
I at least have the two shimmery red shades that I wanted to show you today as part of my Halloween palooza on the blog this weekend! So let’s jump right into it.
‘TIS THE SEASON OF SHIMMERY ORANGES AND I’M HERE FOR IT.
We’re full on in the fall and Halloween seasons, and I’ve been loving it. It’s fitting that everyone has been putting out lovely oranges in their collections, and I say keep ’em comin’. And Pure Ice did not disappoint.
Pure Ice is a brand exclusive to Walmart, and honestly I haven’t been really found a terrible formula in their polishes. It can be expected, since these polishes are only TWO DOLLARS, but they don’t feel like it. So when I saw advertising for their Halloween polishes I had to hunt them down.
It’s a 5 piece limited edition collection, and each bottle cap has an orange “Limited Edition” sticker on it. There are 4 polishes that stand on their own, and then one topper.
They also had a glow in the dark polish on the display, but I’m honestly not a fan of glow in the dark polishes, so I skipped on it.
So let’s get right into the swatches (and a couple comparisons)!
