It’s that time of year guys! Black Friday sales info is coming in full swing and I have the first post of the season to share! As you may or may not know, Blush does a pre-black Friday sale with lots of discounts, exclusives and new colors! This year we have the Seawater Shimmers part II collection and two EPIC duos. I have LOADS of info at the end of this post regarding what’s going to be on sale, what’s exclusive and discounts galore! Let’s start with the new colors, specifically the Seawater Shimmers collection part II:
Esme Cove– a dusty purple base with a blue to purple shifting shimmer and shifts of red at extreme angles.
Swatches show two coats with glossy topcoat. Formula for the entire collection feels medium and builds to full opacity at two coats (save for one). It does dry down a touch satin-like so be sure to use a glossy topcoat to get those shimmers to pop. The brush makes these super easy to apply. The base on this one is what I would call a dusty lavender, perfect for this time of year and the shimmer appears blue in strong lights and an easy vibrant purple shift on tilt.
Gemma Atlas– a dusty lavender base with a green shimmer that shifts to red at extreme angles
Swatches show two coats with glossy topcoat. Formula built easily for me, and stayed where I put it. The base to this one is almost flirting with a dusky purpley-grey to me. The shimmer appears a vivid green in bright lights with a strong red on shift.
Marin Bering– a dusty dark mauve pink base with an orange to gold shifting shimmer and shifts of green at extreme angles.
Swatches show three coats with glossy topcoat. The base is a perfect mauve to me, and the shimmer appears mostly copper with gold and orange on tilt. You’ll see this one light up (as well as the others) in shaded lighting. Formula was just a touch lighter than the others on this one, but I can see that loaded the brush a little more I could have gotten away with two coats.
Theodora Delphine– A sage base with a bronze-y pink to gold to green shifting shimmer and shifts of teal at extreme angles.
Swatches show two coats with glossy topcoat. Formula felt like the others, stayed where I put it and easily opaque. The base is a lovely sage, almost light sage green to me with the shimmer appearing mostly gold with strong lime green on tilt and an intense blue on extreme angles.
Calliope Pacifica– a taupe grey base with a pink to orange shifting shimmer and shifts of gold at extreme angles.
Swatches show two coats with glossy topcoat. This has a similar formula to the others, easily opaque and applies effortlessly. The base to me is a grey leaning taupe, and the shimmer warms it up to be super flattering on warm toned skin. This one is very shifty and the shimmer easily went from a strong fuchsia to an orange-y gold.
Ocean Moonbeam– A dusty dark teal base with a blue to purple shifting shimmer and shifts of red and gold at extreme angles.
Swatches show two coats with glossy topcoat. Formula felt a little heavier than the others, and applied super opaque. The base is a dusky blue leaning teal and the shimmer mostly appears the cerulean you see below with pinks and golds on tilt.
Vanora Horizon– an olive toned lime base with a pink to orange shifting shimmer and shifts of gold at extreme angles.
Swatches show two coats with glossy topcoat. Formula felt identical to the others, easily built up and smooth application. The base is a perfect meld between olive and lime green and the shimmer is super strong. You’ll mostly see the reddish copper and gold on tilt.
Not Your Average Duo- inspired after the popular Not Your Average Seahorse shade from Polish Pickup, both polishes are inspired by the original and feature both a royal purple and forest green shade. These will only be available the weekend of the sale.
Not Your Average Sea Monkey– A royal purple base with a shifting teal/blue/violet micro flake shimmer, shifting red/orange/gold flakies and a light tough of scattered holo.
Swatches show three coats with glossy topcoat. Formula has a jelly feel and gave me full opacity at three coats. Flakies picked up easily, and laid down flat. The shimmer is crazy strong and shifts between blues, violets, and teals. No texture after topcoat.
Not your Average Sea Dragon– A deep forest tea base with a shifting pink/orange/gold micro flake shimmer, shifting blue/purple/pink/red flakies and a light touch of scattered holo.
Swatches show three coats with glossy topcoat. Formula has a similar feel to Sea Monkey and got full opacity for me at three coats. The shimmer is strong here too, and easily shifts between primarily pink, then orange and gold on tilt. Flakes picked up easily, and laid down flat. No texture after topcoat. (This is easily my top shade from Blush it’s amazing!!).
Evening Sparkler Duo- Inspired by the original Evening Sparkler, this features a 2018 remake and a holo flakie version. I have the OG bottle though we recently moved and my collection and helmer are all taped up and in boxes still. If anyone has any requests for comparison, I’m happy to help but give me a little bit to get settled here first. I can safely say that the OG and 2018 shades are very, very close. These will only be available the weekend of the sale.
Evening Sparkler Holo– a deep blue base packed with holo pigment, holo flakes, pink shimmer that shifts to orange and gold at extreme angles.
Swatches show two coats with glossy topcoat. Formula has a super buttery feel during application and applies very opaque. The shimmer pops as a glowing background of pink and there is so much rainbow and sparkle from the flakes and holo. No texture after topcoat.
Evening Sparkler 2018– a deep royal blue base with a very strong red shimmer and little orange holo glitters that give a sparkling effect. *made as close as possible to the OG version.
Swatches show three coats with glossy topcoat. This is so beautiful, the shimmer is crazy strong. Formula has a light feel but built fully opaque for me at 2-3 coats. The base is a royal blue, with an almost indigo undertone. No texture after topcoat. If you missed the original release of this one, I highly suggest you snag this one.
Now for all the details! The Seawater Shimmers part II are $13 each, and $91 for the full set. If you purchase the set during the pre-black Friday sale, you’ll get the eighth polish- Talise Tempest free to complete the set (I have it in hand and it’s a MUST have. That’s all I can say- trust me it’s beautiful!) The collection will be around after the sale, but the option of getting the eighth polish is only during the sale weekend.
The Evening Sparkler duo will be $18 for both, or $9 each. The Not Your Average duo is $22 for both, or $11.75 each. Both duos are only available for purchase separately or as a duo only during the sale weekend. After this weekend, they will be removed from the site.
