Berried Treasures:
Although this beautiful hot pink is not the most unique color out of the six, the formulation is very smooth and pigmented. I used two coats for the swatches below.
Berried Treasures, two coats with no top coat.
Coconut Cove:
A simple white cream, Coconut Cove has a fairly pigmented formulation. The application is creamy and a mostly opaque coverage can be obtained with two coats of application.

Hiking Heels:
This is a lovely bright tomato red with a squishy, jelly-like finish. The pigmentation is super saturated, one coat is almost enough for a full coverage.

Loot the Booty:
If you love a good blue shimmer then you are going to love this one! Loot the Booty is a beautiful deep blue scattered with small flecks of iridescent light blue/purple sparkles. The formulation is very easy to work with; I used two coats for the swatches below.

Just when you think this collection can't get any more awesome, we have one last kick-ass shade called Tribal Text-Styles. This is a gorgeous dark onyx packed with iridescent silver shimmers. The formulation is fantastic, two coats for a beautiful coverage.
