Collections: Sinful Colors Kylie + Sinful Shine King Kylie

When these collections appeared last year, I remember being absolutely enchanted by North Star first, then picking up a smattering of others here and there whenever popping into Walgreens. Later, I found a few bottles heavily discounted at Target, and was really surprised by the defacement of the display for this collection. Insults and ugliness, left in nail varnish and ink, directed at Miss Jenner. Whatever her reputation among the target (and Target, lol) demographic for her cosmetics, my opinion of her collaboration is sky-high. So much so that when I came upon scads of half-price bottles at a different well-stocked Walgreens locale, I shopped to my nails’ content. No regrets; here’s what I have.

These four are Trend Matters Angel shimmer mattes:

Twenty-six bottles in all.

Unsure how many comprised the collections; I’m not fan enough to do intensive Internet homework so it was difficult to decipher on my own what was what in order to break down what I had.

Since I had initially filled up a wheel of 18 chips with what I had (not anticipating buying more), they were organized by colour on the wheel and in my notebook by collection/finish.

That was last year.  When I ended up collecting eight more bottles in the interim, I just put them in the box shown in the background and saved it all for another day.

Those bottles ended up on a different nail wheel, just painted.  Lots of work and confusion!

Now for some comparisons among other similar Sinful Colors 🙂

Rich girl, poor girl ft. Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Pro

Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Pro – Dirty Little Secret, $20 USD

Sinful Shine – Prosecco, between $2-3 USD

Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Pro – Get Lucky, $20 USD

Sinful Shine – Blue Suede Shoes, between $2-3 USD

Above, at one coat each

Dirty Little Secret is sheerest sandy beige, with a subtle gold-tinged scattered and faint linear holo

Prosecco is opaque and leans greyer, with tonnes of greengold shimmer

Would that all new Lippmanns had this faboo brush (or do they?)!

Hmm … we can always dip as a Dirty Little Secret the Lippman brush into Prosecco since we own both 🙂

Is this new brush not a thing of beauty?

Above, all at one coat

Above from left:

Dirty Little Secret, 2x

Prosecco, 3x

Get Lucky, 2x

Blue Suede Shoes, 3x

Some non-gel Butter London comparison friends

All Hail McQueen (love you forever and always, genius mate! xx respects) is the closest weak scattered holo I have to Dirty Little Secret, although he’s obviously a warmer, toastier beige

Artful Dodger is less saturated, more muted than the gel varnishes

Rich girl, poor girl: chance Sinful Colors juxtaposition, a certain Dior 2013 duo?

Dior-Summer-2013-Bird-of-Paradise-Makeup-Collection-cover

Dior Summer 2013 Bird of Paradise collection, 001 Samba nail duo, $29 USD

Dior dupes

Sinful Shine and Sinful Colors, discovered randomly thrown together in an uncorresponding Sinful Colors display, $3 and $2 USD each

Whenever I find myself in relatively stable financial condition, I become nostalgic and start to reminisce over my unfulfilled varnish yearnings of economically lean years past.

In Summer 2013, I wasn’t *that* broke, yet while the Dior 001 Samba duo was still available at a reasonable-for-a-luxury-brand price, I was content to simply window shop and procrastinate staking my claim.  Wasn’t too wild about that green (402), and I couldn’t make up my mind about whether I preferred to save my shekels for Chanel Azure… so I ended up with neither.

Whilst on a series of drugstore sprees last week, filling (subjective) gaps and (perceived) holes in my varnish collection, I was instantly reminded of the Dior Samba duo when I saw these two in tandem.

Better for me, as I prefer everything about Rendezvous to its Dior 402 counterpart, and since I already own an abundance of Palm Breezy-type shades, there’s no compelling reason to spring for something obsolete and pricier a la Dior 794 or Chanel Azure.

Sinful Shine Rendezvous has long disappeared from drugstores.  This was the lone bottle on shelf, and the only one I’ve seen this year!

Summertime blues

There are two different Sinful Shine Al Fresco bottles here; one leans decidedly more purple than the other, although they bear the same shade number 1219…

Dusty surprises ft. Uslu Airlines NIM – Niamey

Am I grey or am I blue? Or greygreen-bluegray? Lol!

Take a gander below:

What say you?

L to R in lineup and on nail wheel:

Essie Parka Perfect
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Grey Matters

Essie Truth or Flare (bluest of the tribe)
Sinful Shine Blue Suede Shoes

Urban Outfitters Barstool
Uslu Airlines NIM Niamey

All are initially two coats on the nail wheel.

I later added a third to Truth or Flare and Barstool, as they were very sheer formulae in comparison to the others.

(They look and feel like jellies/crellies but haven’t done my homework down computer way re these two…)

Wondering if MAC Blue India and Catrice Big City Life New York would fit here… although they seem like dusty yet definitive blues.

(Doubt I will ever see Blue India and New York in real life…)

Uslu Airlines NIM is such a shade-shifter. At times grey, greygreen, bluegray, dusty bluegreen…

Purple palace: PFF pile driving, or ye olde one-two

Although I have all eight purple palace PFF piles in an organized lineup, photographing them is another matter.

The weather is not on the side of palace construction workers this Sunday, so we will knock off early with the following. 🙂
