Brand Challenge: Femme Fatale Cosmetics


Femme Fatale Cosmetics Review

Hello readers,
I'm continuing to work my way through my Femme Fatale Cosmetics collection. Let's take a look at swatches.

Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever features a sheer taupe base filled with a fine red shimmer, lots of black holo glitters and iridescent orange glitters. The formula was easy to apply and I got about 80% coverage after three coats. However, the glitters break up my nail line so it's not super obvious. Photos show three coats of Cabin Fever with one coat of Seche Vite top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Ouija

Ouija features a charcoal grey almost black base filled with holo shimmer and a variety of silver holo hex glitters. The formula was quite pigmented and took two coats for full coverage. This does dry down with some texture so top coat is recommended. Photos show two coats of Ouija with one coat of Seche Vite top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Secret Shine feature a clear base packed with a tiny silver holo flecks, purple shimmer and orange iridescent flakes. This was probably intended to be a topper, but since it was a sample I didn't realize that until wearing it. I used three coats here and my nail l lines still show through pretty clearly. However, the formula was very easy to work with. Photos show three coats of Secret Shine with one coat of Seche Vite top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Wandering Wizard

Wandering Wizard features a clear base filled with tons of silver holo glitters and a fine gold shimmer. The formula was relatively easy to work with and I got almost full coverage in 3 coats. In bright light where the holo glitters take over it looks opaque, in shaded light my nail lines still show through a little bit. This dries down with some texture so you'll want to use a good top coat. Photos show three coats of Wandering Wizard with one coat of Seche Vite top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Tiger Lily

Tiger Lily features a pale muted mauve base filled with a fine shimmer that appears gold-green in some lighting and turquoise in others. The formula was very easy to work with though a tad sheer. After three coats I can still see my nail lines a tiny bit. Photos show three coats of Tiger Lily with one coat of OPI Plumping Top Coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

    1. Thank you! I've rediscovered so many new polishes I had forgotten about, and found some that aren't my style anymore and can go to new homes.
