Luscious Potion Winteresque 2013 Collection + Giveaway!

Press Samples
      

It's almost 2014, are you guys excited?! I just got home from a lovely evening out with my family, had a great dinner and we even went for a car ride in the night! And, of course, I can't forget about you lovely people in my little wrap up of 2013! Today, on the very last day of 2013, I have Luscious Potion's Winteresque 2013 collection's swatches, review....AND GIVEAWAY happening right at the end of this post!


Emerald Mint. 2-3 thin coats, a rich jewel-toned forest green holo. Resembles close to a holly, but very wearable throughout the year.



Ruby Kiss. 2-3 thin coats, speaks true to its name, a red/ruby scattered holo shade with hints of gold flexes.



By The Fireplace. 2-3 thin coats, warm rich dark brown with gold hints and shimmer, a lovely representation of the warmth of a fireplace.



Bubblegum Princess. 4 coats to achieve a jelly gradient effect. A beautiful rose gold shade that can be layered over a color to give that extra sheen and classiness. 



Diamond Rain. 1 coat over OPI " Royal Navy", a blue-tinted slightly more translucent jelly base with white and blue glitters.



Crystal Snow. 2-3 thin coats, a shimmering sea/sky blue with stars and snowflake glitters. Think Maldives ocean shimmering blue ;)



Glaciate. 2 thin coats, a lovely cool-toned teal holo that leans slightly towards a sky blue shade.



Ivory Palace. 2 thin coats, a neutral to cool toned nude holo shade that glistens under direct sunlight, has a slight sandy effect upon observation but not in texture :)



Fading Snow. Used as a French white tip with 1-2 thin coats, a white jelly/creme with silver iridescence to it under direct sunlight. 


Such a lovely collection with holos and jellies! I loved every single holo shade. It isn't too overpowering yet the holo-ness of them still can be seen, even under dimmer sunlight. The formula for each shade really impressive. The only slight problem I had with was Crystal Snow in which it is really difficult to fish out a snowflake glitter, even after placing the bottle upside down for several hours. I reckon that it is due to the heaviness of the snowflake glitter and a slightly less heavy jelly base. Bubblegum Princess was a surprise because it is such a lovely rose gold shade I honestly thought no such shade (closest to my dreams) would exist. I only wish it was a bit more opaque. My favourites out of the lot: Glaciate, Ivory Palace, Emerald Mint, By The Fireplace and Bubblegum Princess.
