Lacquer: L.A. Colors Haul – Force, China Gold, Live  

Posted by: Stylishly yours in , , , ,

I went to Beauty Base in Westfield today, the store is having a L.A. Colors promotion on "Spend £10 and get lipgloss for free", being 99p each it's very difficult to limit my haul. Work being up in the air at the moment, I had to do the sensible thing to restrict my small indulgence to only purchasing 3 varnishes.

L.A. Colors: Force, China Gold, Live

(L-R: Force, China Gold, Live)

I ended up purchasing two from the Color Craze range – Force and Live – and one from their normal range – China Gold. They're all metallic shimmery colours:
  • Force (Color Craze NP 410)
    It is copper/bronze colour. The photo was taken in the sunlight so it looks a bit lighter than it should. Its viscosity looks like it'll need two or three coats to make it opaque.
  • China Gold (NP 105)
    It is a rich orangey gold, less shimmery than Force but has that even metallic tone. Also it seems a bit on the sheer side, it'll need a few coats to do the job. But can see this being use for sponging/gradation or add as a top layer for other colours.
  • Live (Color Craze NP 409)
    Live seems a highly pigmented silver, it's a duplicate of Orly Shine according to You've Got Nail swatch comparison. There's one from their regular range named Metallic Silver which is slightly darker and coarser looking but doesn't seem to be as pigmented as Live. I think it'll work with Konad, I'll have to test it out in the next couple of days, so watch this space!
