Fright This Way is a deep black base and a scattering of holo dust and loads of purple glitter. (3 coats with Bat $#*! Crazy glitter accent)

Collection: KBShimmer Fall 2016

Colors: What struck me most about this collection is how original it is in comparison to other fall collections. This isn't a collection of jewel tones or vampy colors and I like that. There is a nice variety of muted, neutral, bold, and transitional shades in this collection. These are colors that really work for any occasion, but still are warm and cozy for fall. My favorites of the ones I have are Grin And Gerbera It (yes a fall pink!), Tiers of Joy, Flake Me Home Tonight, The Best Mum Ever, and Orchidding Me?

Formula: KBShimmer has always had nice formulas but these were especially so. I used 2 coats on all except I used 3 for Fright This Way. Honestly, if it weren't for photography reasons you can get away with one coat with Grin And Gerbera It and Little Boy Hue. I usually have to do 3 coats with crelly formulas and Tiers of Joy and Sage It Ain't So only needed two. Fright This Way was the only slightly tricky one to apply as it was a bit thicker and harder to control, but that's like comparing gold and silver medals. There wasn't a bad one in the bunch really.

Price: These are $9.25 each and can be found on KBShimmer's website.

Overall: I'm really impressed with this collection. I like these subdued colors and original take on a fall collection. There are a lot of winning colors here and per usual KBShimmer offers so much variety in finishes and shades. The formulas on these are probably the best I've had from KBShimmer and their formulas were great already. You'll definitely want to pick a few of these up!

My Rating: 5 out of 5 *Golden* Paint Splatters
Happy Friday!
