At first glance, honestly, this collection has nothing much to shout about due to the overload of pinks and corals. Anyway, I braved myself to do some swatches as we cannot be judgmental, sometimes. LOL! I did not, however, touch its Rouge Allure Velvet Lipsticks, 2 of its Glossimers, Crayon Lip Pencil and Nail Polishes. Why? Simply because I do not like the formula for both the velvet lipsticks and the lip pencil. The lip glosses are too light for my liking, too. The formula for its nail polish, on the other hand, is lovely, but I just do not need more light colours this time. Period. Frankly speaking, I am quite confused with the theme here. The corals tell me “Hey, I’m Summer”, and who wears pinks and purples with corals during springtime??? *scratch head*  Okay, mini-rant ends, and it’s swatches time!

My initial impression after making swatches of this collection? Not bad, actually. A review will come soon after I have played enough with some of these.=)

Do you see anything that you like here? Or, these just kills your springtime with the pink and coral overload? Hehehe!

With love,
