Shimmering Sunburst

Shimmering Sunburst features a coral-toned pink base with orange/gold shifting aurora shimmer and silver holo glitter. Against the base color the glitters seem to flash a little bit blue, which is very pretty. All of the shades in this trio have glitter, but I only needed one coat of top coat to smooth everything over!

Fuchsia Rays

Fuchsia Rays features a fuchsia (duh) base with blue/purple shifting aurora shimmer and silver holo glitter. I would say the base pulled a little bit more purple than pink on me. This kind of shade likes to show up differently across different screens, so know that there is a sharp contrast between the purple base and the blue shimmer. Very classic girly-feel shade.

This shade has the best opacity; I was able to cover completely in two coats.

Lilac Skies

Last is Lilac Skies, which features a purple base with green/blue/purple shifting aurora shimmer and silver holo glitter. This one is my favorite of the trio, as I’m not a huge fan of pinky corals on my skin nor am I a fan of bright fuchsias in general. All of the formulas of this collection are fantastic and go on smoothly and streak free. Two coats gives a delicate look, but I opted for three coats for a more intense final appearance.
