Today I'm going to be showing you the Scent-suous Collection from Color Club.
This collection is strange - there was no promotion or press releases. It just started showing up... At Sally Beauty.
Sally's does not carry Color Club as a rule but for some reason they got this collection for Christmas.
The polishes are all scented and they actually smell great (unlike the other scented collection from Color Club, Wicked Sweet, which smells totally overwhelming.)
I was worried this collection wasn't going to show up in Canada, but thankfully it did! I got there in time to snag the entire display - a set for me and a set for Kayla. (I wish they came in a set but they don't!)
I'm going to show you the foils first and then the glitters.
Gingerbread Man. 2 coats. This is another great foil from Color Club. As I'm sure you can guess, this smells like gingerbread. It smells really yummy. I'm sure this would work great for stamping.
Kiss Me Mistletoe. 2 coats. I'm going to assume this smells like mistletoe but I'm not sure what that smells like. It's sort of like an evergreen tree smell. I'm not a huge fan of this scent but it is not overwhelming.
These 2 foils are pretty similar to other Color Club polishes:
|Gingerbread, Antiquated, Perfect Mol-ten, Kiss Me Mistletoe|
Kiss Me Mistletoe and Perfect Molten, also from Foiled, are dupes.
Santa's Cinnamon. 2 coats. This is a red jelly packed with red glitter. It's a dupe for China Glaze Ruby Pumps, but maybe a bit more sparkly.
This one smells like cinnamon, duh, sorta like cinnamon hearts candy or Red Hots. I'm not really a fan of those candies but the smell is nice.
Now for big glitters!! I've first swatched them on a wheel in different ways just because I like multiple pictures of glitter.
|One coat over black|
|One coat over black, matte|
Orna-Minted. This is one coat over Soulstice Monterey (swatch coming later this week!)
As you can guess, this one smells like mint. Not offensive and strong, just a nice light mint scent.
This isn't very original though, just three sizes of silver hex glitter in a clear base. It's very pretty though!
Sugar Plum Yum. This one is small green glitter and large purple glitter in a clear base that smells like sugarplum, I guess! Not that I have ever smelled a sugarplum before...
I have to say, this one is my least favorite scent. But I like the glitter!
I've shown it here over Kiss Me Mistletoe.
Very Merry Berry. This one is my favorite! I just love the colors. There is small blue and large fuchsia glitter in a clear base and it smells like berries. It's a fresh scent and I like it a lot.
This is shown over Barry M Boots Limited Edition.
I just love it!
That's all she wrote today! I hope you enjoyed these swatches and good luck finding them at your local Sally's.
