Amour Fall 2014 Live Application and Review
Welcome back. Today we're taking a look at Amour's Fall 2014 collection of 6 polishes. I wanted to give this brand a try again after being disappointed with their quality a few seasons back, and I have to say, they really are still rather hit and miss for me. If you'd like to see the live application video I made of these polishes, then you can do so here:
Let's look at these polishes!
First off we've got Berry Buttoned Up which is an iridescent plum with tons of micro holographic glitter. This one really does have a lustrous appearance, but I couldn't quite get on board with the color. The super bright plum was one thing, and then throw holographic glitter on top of it was a little excessive. This is two coats, and all swatches will be at two coats.
The creams in the collection start off with this kind of dull gray called Clean Slate. I really love gray polishes but this one didn't quite have enough depth for me. All the creams in this collection are a little too thin, but are still nice colors.
The next cream in this collection is this lovely sand color called Do I Look Buff? Again, I really like this color but it's thin and kind of lifeless-feeling. It's unfortunate because the shade is so pretty. Again- two coats here.
Hello Merlot is the last cream. As you can see it's a vibrant classic red. Same problem here though- it's just too thin. I definitely have other reds that I'd chose over this one just because it doesn't give you that richness a cream should have.
Rake on the Green is my least favorite in the collection. It's an uber-dark green crelly and it's just not attractive. It's cloudy and not in a good way. This one was just meh for me.
Who's Cider Are You On? is the last in the collection. Again we have a super-lustrous rich shade with tons of holographic shimmer. This one I enjoyed a bit more than the purple because the base color is a nice neutral shade. This is probably my favorite out of the group because it feels like it has some substance. It also had a nice formula.
Did you see anything here that you liked? Have you ever tried this brand? I purchased them from transdesign.com
I hope you're having a great day! See you back next time.
