It can be hard to keep up and keep straight what collections Sinful Colors currently has out, and what is new and everything. I’m here to straighten it all out.
Alright, Sinful Colors has done the thing again where they release 3 new collections all underneath one big title. They did this for the Spring, with their ‘Spring Trippin’ theme. This included the ‘Desert Divas’ polishes, with the stoned-crystal shimmers finish (see my post here). They also had the ‘Chic Chicas’ which were bright creams with Spanish-themed names, (I posted about three that I found here), and the Sinful Shine collection called ‘Bayou Babes’ (again, find the post here).
They’ve done the same thing for summer with their ’80s Flashback’ theme. There are 3 different collections underneath that: ‘Color Eccentric’, ‘Color Rebellious’ and ‘Color Symbolic’.
‘Color Eccentric’ is their neon collection – I won’t be picking those up at all. If I’m being honest, I can’t be bothered with the white base coat to add another 3 coats on it – and I’ve seen swatches of these and they’re only okay. Idk I haven’t gotten into neons yet. Maybe someday my mind will be changed, nay, I hope someday my mind is changed.
‘Color Rebellious’ has only 3 new shades, and they’re the ‘Moon Metal’ finish – I’ll be posting about those soon!
And last but not least, ‘Color Symbolic’ is the Sinful Shine collection, and what I’m reviewing today! There are only 4 new shades and I have those for you today! Let’s get into the swatches.
Hello everyone! I’m back! If you follow my blog, or follow me on Instagram, you’ll see that I posted I would be a little MIA as I was finishing my big senior project for school. And while I have a couple more days of work on it, (it’s sending out for printing Wednesday!) it’s finally slowed down and I’ve been able to write up some posts in the breaks. What was it? Well I created a 40 page magazine about the food & drink in my town here! I interviewed everyone, wrote the articles, got the photos and designed it all – and now it’s going to be displayed in our art museum with the rest of the graduating seniors’ work. It’s crazy to believe it got done – and soon I can sleep again!
But what I really couldn’t believe was the amount of support that poured in from the beauty and Instagram community. It was incredible. My heart was so full from all the wishing of luck and sweet messages you all delivered. Ever since I joined this community, I’ve found nothing but open arms and new friends and support as we all just talk about the things we love. So I want to thank all of you who supported me – I couldn’t have stayed sane without this.
But now, I’m back and ready to post more than ever! Since this project is (pretty much) done, I’ll have more time to devote to blogging – and applying for a real adult job after graduation – AH. We’re not thinking about that right now. We’re thinking about pretty nail polish.
SO Sinful Colors put out 3 collections all at once, underneath a big theme of “Spring Trippin'”. There are 2 collections in their normal ‘Sinful Colors’ line called ‘Desert Divas’ – with the ‘Stoned Crystal Shimmer’ finish (I NEED THESE AND HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO TRACK THEM DOWN. I might have to put out a call for someone to find them for me), and the ‘Chic Chicas’ collection of creams – again, another one that I haven’t been able to find (my Walgreen supply has been TERRIBLE).
And then there’s a new Sinful Shine collection – which I actually did find, and am talking about today. This is an 8 shade collection – but there’s 5 new shades and 3 repromotes. The repromotes didn’t interest me too much, so I just picked up the new shades.
Like I mentioned, there’s 5 new shades, and they’re all this wonderfully shimmery finish. You can also tell them with their themed-New Orleans names. Since they’re the Sinful Shines, these retail for $2.99 a piece.
So let’s get into the shades – and back to blogging!
2 new Sinful Colors collections popped up at my Walgreens (it was like Christmas, really), so of course I needed them all. I picked this full collection up first, and then a review of the other collection will be up in the next coming weeks!
This particular collection is called ‘Sinful Illusions’. There are 8 shades. All of them are labeled with the limited edition ‘Iridescent Color’ sticker. And it means that all of them have a beautiful iridescent shimmer throughout that makes them so unique.
I’m not sure if this collection is in the Sinful Shine line or not. They have the silver, instead of matte black, cap, and they ring up for $3 instead, but they don’t say “Sinful Shine” on the bottle like the others in the line do. So it just might be a super special collection.
According to Sinful Colors Instagram, the official release for these is September 1st – these popped up early at my Walgreens, so check and they might be available now.
I picked up all 8 shades and I’m going to go in numerical order for this, so let’s get right into it.
