Swatches & Review // 3 Pretty & Polished Dusty Creme shades

Hi loves! Today I have some gorgeous shades to share with you from Pretty & Polished. I ordered these beauties during the Black Friday sale - I can't resist a good creme shade and these particular ones have this gorgeous dusty quality because of the special large particle pigment. The first collection consisted of 10 shades based on the 10 Pantone Fall shades, and now there are 5 new shades added to the Winter collection!

Doesn't that look promising?

Like I said I ordered 3 shades during the Black Friday sale, and have both swatched them and worn one of them for a few days already. The formula is quite similar on all 3: they were slightly patchy on the first layer, but completely opaque and smooth with the second coat. I found that it was easiest to put on the first coat more sloppy and slightly thicker so you don't risk creating bald patches. It might have been the combination with my basecoat, haven't tested that yet.

All 3 shades were opaque in 2 layers, even the butterscotch yellow shade, so that's good, and they self-leveled nicely. They dry down to a satin finish so topcoat is needed for a shiny surface. I am also happy to report I've worn In The Buff for more than 2 days without any tipwear - that doesn't happen to me too often!

Pretty & Polished In The Buff is a smokey, warm butterscotch yellow. There's a lot of brown in this shade and it turned out less yellow looking on me than I anticipated, but I adore it either way.

Pretty & Polished My Sage Advice is a smokey sage green (leaning blue). It's actually more blue to me than green but I don't care, the combination of the basecolor and that dusty finish, it's heavenly!

Pretty & Polished Weather The Storm is a smokey blued grey. Yeah, another headturner! It's a bit darker looking in my pictures, but still gorgeous nonetheless. 

Overall conclusion
I was both scared and excited when trying these shades, excited because they looked so beautiful and scared because yeah.. I now need MOAR Dusty Cremes in my life! My favorite is My Sage Advice because it's so airy and dusty at the same time, but I also adore how wearable In The Buff is for a butterscotch yellow shade. If you like creme shades with a twist, I definitely recommend grabbing some of these!
