KBShimmer Wanderlust Collection Swatches & Review


KBShimmer Wanderlust Collection

Hello readers,
Harlow & Co recently sent me the new KBShimmer Wanderlust collection to share with you. This collection features shades inspired by a trip to California and draws on colours from nature and west coast living. Let's take a look at swatches.

Hakuna Moscato

KBShimmer Hakuna MoscatoKBShimmer Wanderlust

Hakuna Moscato features a sheer purple tinted base filled with small metallic rose gold flakes. The formula was easy to apply though I found I did experience a little dragging if I didn't allow for a little dry time between coats. This dries quite shiny and smooth on its own but I added top coat out of habit. Photos show three coats of Hakuna Moscato with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Succ It Up

Succ It Up features a medium blurple base with a strong turquoise flash and a sprinkling of scatter holo shimmer. The formula was easy to work with taking three coats for full coverage. This shade dries to a satin finish so top coat is recommended if you want a shiny finish. Photos show three coats of Succ It Up with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Meet Me At The Barre

Meet Me At The Barre is a pale pink creme. In some lighting it also leaned a bit peach. The formula was a little bit thick and I found floating the brush a little more than I usually would helped get even coverage. This shade benefits from top coat for a perfect glossy finish. Photos show three coats of Meet Me At The Barre with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Cactus If You Can

KBShimmer Cactus If You CanKBShimmer Wanderlust

Cactus If You Can is a soft medium green with a pink flash and scatter holo shimmer. The formula was easy to work with taking three coats for full coverage, though it was so close after two that those with shorter nails or a less distinct nail line will likely find two is enough. This shade dried to a satin finish so top coat is recommended if you want shine. Photos show three coats of Cactus If You Can with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Wander-full World

Wander-full World is a vibrant medium pink holo. The formula was excellent taking two thin coats for full coverage. This dries shiny on its own but I added top coat out of habit. Photos show two coats of Wander-full World with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Don't Fear The Reefer

Don't Fear The Reefer is a bright mint green holo. Another excellent formula. I used three thin coats here but it was so close after two that if you have shorter nails or a less distinct nail line, two would likely be enough. Photos show two coats of Don't Fear The Reefer with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Now & Zen

Now & Zen features a medium periwinkle blue base with a strong green flash and a holo silver flecked shimmer. The formula was easy to work with taking three coats for full coverage. This shade dries down to a satin finish so top coat is recommended for shine. Photos show three coats of Now & Zen with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.
