Princess Charming:
A dusty rosy mauve, Princess Charming is a very unique and elegant color. The formulation is decently pigmented and creamy so I used two coats for the swatches below.

Good Kight:
A standout inky oxblood red, Good Knight was fairly sheer. However, with two coats, I was able to get a very nice and even coverage. Colors like this tend to be quite patchy and difficult to apply but this one was surprisingly easy to work with.

Once Upon A Time:
With a muted gray undertone, this is a sophisticated powder blue with a nicely pigmented formulation. I used two coats for the swatches below.

Matter of Fiction:
A pale whitish pink, Matter of Fiction is very sheer. I was able to get away with just two coats but a third one would have provided a more even and opaque coverage.

Overall, this is a very classy and simple collection. With the exception of "Good Knight", all the colors just scream spring. My personal picks are "Princess Charming", "Once Upon A Time", and "Good Knight". What are your thoughts on these colors? Share with me in the comments below!
