Greetings, sweet thing, and happy Tuesday to ya. Speaking of sweet things, have your eyes feasted upon the Deborah Lippmann spring collection yet? If not, get this: it has sprinkles!
The tiny two-piece release has been out for a while now (available at Nordstrom stores and also online), featuring whisper-light colors for those times when you’re in the mood for something sweet, but yet more reserved than jelly beans.
Glitter in the Air ($18) caught my attention. It’s a sheer light blue with flecks of pink and blue glitter swimming around in it. Before I tried it on, I expected more of a glitter-ific punch from it — something like last fall’s Bad Romance or Across the Universe, but it’s lower key than either of those shades.
As a matter of fact, I’m wearing five (!) coats of it in this swatch. First question: what’s the point? When I want glitter on my nails, I usually want a lot, or none at all. I think it’s still pretty, but I haven’t quite figured out when I’d wear this shade out.
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: C
Naked ($16), a creamy nude, doesn’t look as flashy in its bottle as Glitter in the Air does, but I think it’s adorable on my nails, and likely more practical, too. As a neutral, it should go well with most outfits, and because it’s so light, chips probably won’t be too obvious.
I was hoping for two-coat coverage, but it required three coats to reach opaque color in the swatch above.
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B
What do you think of these? Are they too subtle for spring?
