Ready to Boa:
A dark brown packed with iridescent shimmers with a red and gold duo-chrome effect, Ready to Boa is very pigmented and super easy to apply. It was almost a one-coater but I used two coats just in case.

This is a rich deep red cream. The formulation is not as pigmented as I expected but the application was trouble-free and opaque with two coats.

I am usually not a fan of peaches but Oh Behave! is a lovely soft coral with a subtle splash of peachy gold shimmers. The formulation was great; I used two coats for the swatches below.

A pale sparkling gold shimmer, Getting Groovy felt slightly sheer on its first coat but with two coats the coverage was excellent!

A soft dove gray cream filled with subtle iridescent silver shimmers, Go with the Flowy is definitely the most wintery shade out of the bunch. I was expecting this to be quite sheer and patchy but the formulation is surprisingly decent! I used two coats for the swatches below.
