Girly Bits Cosmetics February 2018 COTM Swatches & Review


Girly bits You Look Mauvelous

Hello readers,
Today I have the February COTM shades from Girly Bits Cosmetics to share with you. This month's duo features a mix of neutral and vamp. Let's take a look at swatches.

Dark Reflection

Dark Reflection features a deep burgundy jelly base with dark red shimmer and green to blue shifting iridescent flakes. The base looks a bit more purple in the bottle, but it reads more red on the nail. The formula was easy to work with,though I did occasionally have to swirl the brush in the bottle to grab more flakies. Three coats were needed for full coverage. This dries relatively shiny, though there is the occasional flakie divot so I recommend top coat for a perfectly smooth finish. Photos show three coats of Dark Reflection with one coat of Girly Bits Cosmetics What A Rush top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

You Look Mauvelous features a taupe leaning purple (or purple leaning taupe, depending on the lighting) crelly base with lots of small red and grey metallic flakes. The formula was very easy to work with and took two thin coats for full coverage. Photos show two coats of You Look Mauvelous with one coat of Girly Bits What A Rush top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Conclusion

I really surprised myself. When looking at the bottle I thought for sure Dark Reflection would be my favorite. I mean, I love flakie filled jellies. But after putting them on, You Look Mauvelous takes the top spot for me. I just love the crelly base that looks a little different when I change lighting, and the contrasting red flakes make it really interesting. The February shades are available now until March 1, 2018 at 11:59pm EST for $16.50CAD each. This duo will also be available as a set for $31CAD until February 10th.

Happy polishing,
