I'm so excited to show you this upcoming collection by Femme Fatale Cosmetics, because it's absolutely stunning, I LOVE all 8 shades!
"The There & Back Again Collection is inspired by the novel of the same name, also known as The Hobbit, by J. R. R. Tolkien. From icy silvers through to warm earth tones and smouldering magentas, the There & Back Again Collection capture but a little of the fantastic essence that translates through Tolkien's magnificent work. Enjoy!"
I'm a big fan of the whole The Lord of the Rings world, so for start the theme was close to me, and when I saw the polishes, I totally fell in love.
As I stated above, I love all of the shades, but if I have to choose a favorite from the collection, it must be this shade. I get the chills even if I'm thinking about this color, it's crazy :D
It has a really sheer, blue tinted base (it's so sheer that it's hard to notice), and it looks like it has silvery pale-blue holo glitters, gold microglitters and bronze shimmer. But that bronze shimmer OMG!!!! It looks stunning with that pale blue-silver holo flash!
I used 3 thin coats on it's own, but I can imagine this as a topcoat too (it's going to be the next thing that I try). It doesn't dry too textured, I used 1 thick coat of topcoat.
Another favorite of mine is this stunning berry-magenta-plum shade with corally-red holo microglitters, purple-blue shimmer flakes and coppery-orange flakes.
I used 3 thin coats to build up the jelly base and I used 1 thick coat of opcoat to smooth it out.
THIEF IN THE SHADOWS
It's a deep mulberry-plum jelly base with silver holo glitters in different sizes and pink-purple-blue shimmer flakes. 2 thick or 3 thin coats will be enough to build up the dept. I doesn't dries textured, I used 1 thick coat of topcoat.
THE LAST GREAT FIRE-DRAKE
It's a deeper magenta-plum jelly base with gold holo microglitters and intensive turquoise-emerald shimmer. It looks absolutely gorgeous!
I used 3 thin coats + 1 thick coat of topcoat.
It's a clear base with tons of gold-pink shimmer flakies and gold holo glitters in different sizes. It's more of a thin formula, but it builds up nicely in 3 normal coats. It doesn't dries too textured, 1 thick or 2 normal coat of topcoat should be enough.
It's a light beige-brown, or I think we can say that it's a tan color, with gold metallic glitters, golden-olive shimmer and gold flakes. It's a beautiful color, but sadly it's not the most flattering shade on my skintone, but oh well... I'm going to wear it anyway :D
2 thick or 3 thin coats will be enough + 1 thick coat of topcoat
Weirdly it's another favorite of mine. If someone would've shown this color 2-3 years ago I probably would've hated it, but in the last year or so I started to like browns (even warm browns), especially if it's so beautiful like this. I would call this color camel, because it's a really warm medium brown. It has intensive lime-green shimmer flakes which shifts to pink in certain lights.
It has an awesome formula with high pigmentation, I used 2 coats + topcoat.
HEART OF THE MOUNTAIN
It has a really pale turquise tinted base, it looks almost clear. It contains lots of gold-pink shimmer flakies and itsy-bitsy silver holo glitters. The overall look is really ethereal and opal-like, I love it, it looks so much better in real life!
It's quite sheer, so you definitely will need 3 normal coats, but for the photos I used 4 coats just to be sure. It doesn't build up thick though, so don't worry about that, it contains really small particles, so 3-4 coats won't look chunky at all! I used 1 coat of topcoat over it.
Gorgeous, gorgeous colors, I'm so in love ith this collection! Let me know in the comments what are your favorites!
