PRESS SAMPLE: these were sent to me for review
Hello lovely readers! I’ve got one hell of a week planned for you guys on posts! I’m kicking it off with Femme Fatale’s December releases. We’ve got the Tinsel Collection, COTM, and FOTM! Let’s take a peek!
In lieu of repeating myself, all swatches are shown at 2-3 coats with topcoat. The shimmer is very luminescent in person. I’d suggest going in light on your brush strokes to prevent any streaking. They dry down a touch flat, so I’d suggest a glossy topcoat to finish off.
Tinsel Collection (Full set: $104 AUD)
Ornate $14.00 AUD: A sheer copper base with strong olive golden shimmers that shift to teal then pink at angle to the light.
Lambent $14.00 AUD: An orange coral base with strong pink to red to gold sheen that shifts at angle to the light.
Bauble $14.00 AUD: A murky grey-blue sheer base that is quickly overcome by a stunning pink-copper-green shifting multichrome.
Nacreous $14.00 AUD: A sheer wisteria purple base, that is slightly pink toned, and has a strong luminous green-blue-pink shifting sheen over the top.
Lucent $14.00 AUD: A light purple base with a strong gold-lime-teal sheen that shifts at angle to the light.
Glisten $14.00 AUD: A sheer, true “clear summer sky” blue, with pink-gold-green shimmers that shift at angle to the light.
Sequin $14.00 AUD: A deep ocean teal with lilac-silver-green shimmers that shift at angle to the light.
Frosted $14.00 AUD: A sheer frosty pale blue with a green-blue-purple shifting sheen.
Midsummer Eve $12.50 AUD– A forest green jelly base filled with assorted glitters in iridescent red, orange, green; plus metallic gold, copper and lime glitters, with golden stars.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. This is glitter heavy, so I’d suggest using your first coat as a foundation and then going in normally on the second and carefully moving around the larger glitters. It dries down thirsty and textured, so I’d suggest a glitter smoothing topcoat (I’m wearing one in my photos).
FOTM DECEMBER (only available to FB Fiend members)
Milky Way $12.50 AUD– A medium-sheer black jelly base filled with holographic glitters in assorted colours and sizes – silver, black, copper, red, blue and gold.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula applies like a full coverage glitter. I think most will be perfect between 2-3 coats depending on how you polish. This does dry down thirsty, so I’d suggest a glitter smoothing topcoat or two coats of glossy topcoat.
The December releases go up for presale December 1st at 9am AEST through December 5th. If you’re new to the brand, these are limited in that they will only be available during this pre-sale window. Stockists such as Beautometry will likely offer these too (I have not confirmed for this collection yet). Black Friday info for Femme Fatale hasn’t been posted yet, so if they do have a sale I’ll update this post and my YouTube video accordingly (also if they do, it’ll be posted in the Facebook group linked below). Be sure to check out my swatch video to see these in action!
Thanks so much for reading!
