China Glaze Autumn Nights - Part Two ♥ Swatches & Review


China Glaze Autumn Nights The Cremes and The Foils

Last night I shared with you the first half of the China Glaze Autumn Nights collection, and today I have the second half for you.  As much as I didn’t like the first half, I LOVE this half.  I had no expectations of the foils in this collection, and they all blew me away.  I also didn’t have trouble with the formula on these like I did with the shimmers.

Rendezvous With You is described as a “shimmery purple affair.”  It’s a deep eggplant and silver foil that absolutely blew me away when I applied it.  The foil was amazing dense, yet the formula applied easily.

In fact, all of the foils were easy to apply and required no cleanup, a characteristic I deeply appreciate!

Strike Up A Cosmo is a sparkling rose gold foil.  Rose gold is still very in, and I love this deepened version for fall.  I typically stray away rose shades, but I can see myself reaching for this one again soon!

Goldie but Goodie is an amazing deep gold foil, with a small amount of bronze foil mixed in.  I love this spin on the traditional gold foil.  The shade is deep enough to stand out from the many other golds in my collection.

China Glaze Gossip Over GimletsChina Glaze Gossip Over Gimlets

Gossip Over Gimlets is a silver version of Goldie but Goodie.  It’s a sparkling silver foil with a small amount of gold mixed in, and I love it!  For some reason it feels like a shade you would wear to a party drinking champagne.  Or rather, a gimlet!

China Glaze Charmed, I’m SureChina Glaze Charmed, I’m SureChina Glaze Charmed, I’m Sure

Charmed, I’m Sure  is a deep eggplant crème.  It is the only shade in this half of the collection I had a little bit of trouble with.  The first coat went on very streaky, and required three to completely even out.  I think it would make an amazing mani combined with Goldie but Goodie as an accent.

Queen B is a creamy blurple crème.  I love the fact that the name blurple has become so widely used that China Glaze used it in it’s press release!  This is a gorgeous shade with a beautiful formula.  Is it unique?  No.  Should you buy it anyways?  YES!

The China Glaze Autumn Nights is available now!  Do you need to run out and pick up the whole collection?  No.  But do you need these six?  Yes!

Which shades are calling out to you?
