I've received so many swatching requests for this Lancôme Holiday collection...
Mainly about the "red' and how it was a possible Chanel Malice dupe. Let's see about that shall we?
Bubbly Gold is a cool toned champagne gold leaning pewter with a a sparkly foil finish and dustiness around the edges. Formula was fantastic and it applied like a dream in 2 easy, even, coats. No topcoat here.
Ginger Swing has the exact same finish as Bubbly Gold but in a warm coppery gold shade. Formula was also just as perfect and a full intensity 2 coater. No topcoat here either.
Flirty Red is the jewel of the collection and a sublime burgundy red shimmer with a slight pink hue . It's deep, glowing in the center and dark around the edges, just the kind of vampy I love! Application was flawless and fully opaque in 2 coats.
Here's how Flirty Red (ring and index) compares to Chanel Malice (pinky and middle finger). The difference is subtle but enough for me to justify getting both ;-)
And now the extra swatches :
First up, Cosmopolitan Kaki, one of the latest additions to the Lancôme Vernis in love core line. Easiest application ever for a creamy medium taupe.
And finally we have Givre Magique, a "thick" matte topcoat, somewhere between satin and pure matte. Ultra easy to work with and extremely smooth once dry. I swatched it over Lancôme Pop Petrol, an old shade that was sitting among my untrieds ^_^
