Sephora Formula X Aura

I have another polish from the Sephora Formula X Black Quartz collection to share with you today. I only have 2 from this collection and based on the 2 I have I'm going to need the other 3! These are beautiful blends of jewel-toned glitters in a black jelly base. I've never seen polishes with finishes like this done well. The glitters are usually drowned out by the jelly base. These are not and have that perfect balance.

Aura is a black jelly base packed with ruby red glitters.

Collection: Sephora Formula X Black Quartz Collection 2015

Color: You can't go wrong with red and black. This is gorgeous ruby red glitter and I love how it pops against that black base. This color looks rich and classy. No complaints here.

Formula: I used 3 coats on this swatch. I didn't have trouble with application. This does dry down matte and dull so 1-2 coats of top coat will give it the shine it needs to really pop.

Price: This is $12.50 from Sephora.

Overall: I love Aura. This collection is gorgeous and I love how they achieved the perfect balance of base and glitter when using a black jelly base. This isn't something I've seen accomplished well at all. My only complaint is that these dry down matte, it can be resolved with top coat, but I was surprised this didn't have a shiny finish on its own.

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Friday!
