Swatches & Review - 3 El Corazon Kaleidoscope Fashionista shades

Hi loves! How are you today? I worked in Utrecht today and normally that's an hour away. Unfortunately (also for the person who lost his or her life obviously) there was a huge accident this morning, causing the road home to be closed off all day and evening. So I had to take a different route, which caused me to have a 2 hour drive home.. In the end I shouldn't complain though, at least I made it home!

Today I've got for you 3 shades from El Corazon (the bottle says Kaleidoscope but I think it is a subbrand within El Corazon?). These are all the same idea but different basecolors: a jelly base filled with different sized white glitter.

I like the idea behind these though I wasn't as crazy about each shade. Also formula isn't really consistent. Every color is 3 coats, no basecoat, topped with 1 coat of Essence Better Than Gel Top Sealer. They all felt smooth to touch with topcoat, no glitter poking out.

Appaerently these do have names, I just can't read them. I tried to translate them with Google Translate and some guessing. If there are any Russian Readers here, don't hestitate to correct me!

First one is №01, called Модница б oфuce or Fashionista To The Office. This is a soft pink sheer base. I think it is a bit too peachy and therefore can look a bit "dirty", it isn't a clean looking pink.

It builds up nicely in 3 coats, allowing the earlier put on glitter to show through the last layer. You can still slightly see my nail white. This is indeed an office appropriate glitter!

Next up №07, called Модница к премьере or Fashionista To The Premiere. Most sheer out of the 3 I received, and a nice "in between" color. The rose color kinda reminds me of teacups somehow, don't ask me why.

This was still quite sheer at 3 coats but putting on more wouldn't be something I'd normally do, so I won't for swatches either. It applied a bit harder as it was thinner, you have to be careful to not pool your cuticles.














































Last but not least, №05. This is called .... I have no idea! I can't seem to find the proper Russian letters, it doesn't make any sense in Google Translate.. I am clueless! Thank you Tanya Wish, apparently this is Fashionista On Shopping :-).

It is a lovely shade of purple though, or should I say lavender? The white glitter really gives great contrast and this was the most opaque in 3 coats. It was a bit lumpy though. It shows a bit in my pictures how this wouldn't go on completely smooth.




So tell me, which out of these 3 shades do you like best?

  7. Wow, I LOVE these! I'm not usually into glitters like these, but the glitter doesn't seem very dense. I love the first one which looks very nude, and I would totally rock that glitter to work! lol
