Hi loves! While it's still Summer, Fall collections are slowly coming in and I couldn't be more excited ^^. There is just something about those darker, more vampy shades that always gets me excited, and I rarely dislike collections done this time of year. Today I have the (almost) complete Colors by Llarowe Fall 2015 set to show you. Unfortunately one shade is missing but the other 9 are all here for your viewing pleasures!

Let's get to it!

The Colors by Llarowe Fall 2015 collection consists of 10 shades, they all have some sort of holographic sparkle and most have an extra twist to make them even more stunning. The formula was good for all of them, most were opaque in 2 coats and they applied even and smooth.

If you are interested in this set or any of the shades, you can pre-order them September 15th on www.llarowe.com between 12:00PM and 8:00PM MDT. Each shade retails for $12 and you can order the set for $110 which saves you $10.

All pictures are taken under artificial lighting which highlights the holographic finish and slightly washes out the smaller details like glitter.

Colors by Llarowe Aubergine Dreams is a deep aubergine intense linear holo with pink and purple flash. It's quite cool-toned which I like. This one had a nice consistency, not too thick nor thin. Almost opaque in 1 coat, I used 2 coats and topcoat.

Colors by Llarowe Lake of the Pines is a deep pine green with blue undertones and a soft linear holo. Such a versatile shade! It can look more green or blue depending on the lighting you see it in. It had a thicker formula, but still easy to control. It's extremely pigmented so you can easily get away with 1 coat. I didn't experience staining while swatching but it might stain after a few hours of wear, so becareful with that. I used 2 coats and topcoat.

Colors by Llarowe Last Harvest is a medium grass green intense linear holo. This shade of green is so pretty! It does remind me of grass and I like how it's bright yet not too light in tone. The formula had a thinner consistency, be careful around the cuticle to avoid pooling. On the first coat it looked rather sheer but it became perfectly opaque with the second layer. I used 2 coats and topcoat.

Colors by Llarowe Memories of You is a silver taupe scattered holo with lavender undertone and red shifting shimmer with glowing finish. This shade gave me an A-England vibe! The same kind of intense scattered holo, very pretty. The formula was similar to Aubergine Dreams. I used 2 coats and topcoat.

Colors by Llarowe Mocha Grande is a deep chocolate brown intense linear holo with copper, gold and red shimmer. Woah, doesn't it look intense?! Please do note my type of lighting really highlights the shimmer in this one. It actually reminds me a lot of tiger's eye, the gemstone. It has a nice, flowy formula, and is already quite opaque in 1 coat. I used 2 coats and topcoat.

Colors by Llarowe Rain is a bright sea blue scattered holo with glowing finish. This has the same amazing finish as Rare Orchid. It's mesmerizing, so happy I got to add these swatches in the end! The formula is amazing. Smooth, pigmented, basically paints itself in 1 to 2 coats. I used 2 coats and topcoat.

Colors by Llarowe Rare Orchid is a medium orchid pink scattered holo with subtle shimmer with glowing finish. It's like the holo is pushing to break through yet doesn't manage to do so, but in a good way! It has this gorgeous rich finish even without the obvious sparkles. Applying this was so easy, it's quite thick but in a good way and could be a 1 coater as well. I used 2 coats and topcoat.

Colors by Llarowe She's My Cherry Pie

Colors by Llarowe She's My Cherry Pie is a deep plum brown intense linear holo with intense shimmer and pink to red flash. Love the extras sparkle in this shade! It's one I had to put on my nails immediately and I am guessing it won't be the last time I've worn this shade. The formula is slightly thinner. I used 2 coats and topcoat.

Colors by Llarowe The Fallen

Colors by Llarowe The Fallen is a deep copper red jelly base with scattered holo, shifting flake and intense copper to red shimmer. You know I love my holos with a twist, the flakies in this one create a gorgeous look in both shade and sunshine. The formula is sheer which is good, because it allows you to build up the flakies and create more depth. I used 3 coats and topcoat.

Colors by Llarowe Wine & Roses is a deep wine red intense linear holo. Perfect formula, not too thick, easy to control and very pigmented without being too opaque (yeah, does that make sense?!). I used 2 coats and topcoat.

Overall conclusion
Like I said in my introduction, I'm sucker for Fall collections, so I'm a bit biased. But well, I just REALLY love all of these shades! The formula was good on all of them and the colors are eyecatching. Considering there should have been a bright blue included as well, I think the color palette is diverse enough to please a lot of people. My favorites are She's My Cherry Pie and Mocha Grande.

Are you as excited as I am for Fall collections? And which shade catches your eye the most? Tell me in the comments!
Colors by Llarowe is the indie brand from the well known stockist Llarowe. The formula is 3-free and the bottles hold 12 ml. of polish.
