Swatches & Review - Cirque Colors, Lacquer Lust and Serum No. 5 Summer Fest 2015 Collaboration Trio

Hi loves! Today I am sharing 3 superfun shades released by Cirque Colors, Lacquer Lust and Serum No. 5. It's a Summer Fest Collaboration Trio which comes in a little giftbox, with candy included ^^! Ready to gift or keep for yourself.

Before diving into my post, I encourage you to also check out my friend Emily - she has the same set up on her blog as we speak!

Cirque Colors Kandi Flip
Cirque Colors Kandi Flip
Cirque Colors Kandi Flip is a coral holographic that is almost neon in appearance. The formula is divine, 2 easy coats are all you need to achieve opacity. Shown with topcoat.

Lacquer Lust Untz Untz Untzing Unicorn is a clear based polish filled with silver microglitter with a holographic sparkle mixed in and larger neon glitters in yellow, orange and pink. Because I have some serious issues with VNL (I almost never ever can stand it) I chose to layer 2 coats of this one over a silver base, though it seems quite opaque on its own. Shown with topcoat.

Serum No. 5 Plur

Serum No. 5 Plur



Serum No. 5 Plur
Serum No. 5 Plur is a glow-in-the-dark neon topper. The glow on this baby is amazing, I just didn't have the skill to charge it well and then take pictures. I basically had to stick my arm behind my Helmers while sitting under my desk in an attempt to find a space dark enough for the glow to come out and play.. I haven't mastered gitd shots yet O.o! Application was easy, I used 1 coat over Cirque Colors Carpe Diem and it does have a slightly yellow tinge, but who cares. It glows in the dark!

Overall conclusion
This set is a great way to try out 3 different indies and the shades are all very true to their own style. I had never tried Lacquer Lust and Serum No. 5 before but I am impressed with the shades - they applied easily and have a gorgeous finish! Still, my favorite is Cirque Colors Kandi Flip. There's something about these coral holographics that makes me giddy and happy.

  11. They are very interesting to put on as the effect happens quite quickly :-).

  12. Yes, if the effect is more visible it definitely helps to make them stand out more!

  13. Yeah the ones with the more pronounced effect are definitely prettier, I think you need to see them in person to really make up your mind :)

  19. Argh! I really want the cirque but can't justify the whole box when I won't wear the glitters. I'll have to keep my eyes out for someone destashing it.

  29. The base seems a bit too grey-silver for me, I think? I dunno! You always make me love kind of ugly shades though. :P
