Orly Spring Cool Romance Collection: Prelude to a Kiss NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 15 - 2012

Orly’s Spring 2012 Collection is out and pays homage to some of the gentlest pastels around.  We’re not talking sweet-shop pastels here, these are the slightly edgier, grungier cousins of the pastel world.  Just about.

I don’t generally go much on pastels, so Cool Romance’s dirtier take on the trend is right up my street.  Infact, I love the look of all of them except Steel Your Heart, the non pastel that gives me the “Geez, it’s Spring not Autumn/Winter!” feeling.

Prelude to a Kiss* is a pretty pale pink creme with a hint of peach.  It feels like it should be opaque in two coats but needed a third to even out a little bit of streakiness.  It’s a little bit thick in formula, like many pastels, but applies without too many frustrations.  I love these shades for lazy weeks when I can get away with a whole heap of tip wear!

Orly Cool Romance Collection is available to buy in two sizes: 18ml are £6.95 each from www.beautybay.com and the mini 5.3ml are £5 each at www.boots.com

Do you have a favourite from the collection?

  1. That looks so pretty on you, I’ll admit I was going to pass the peach by in favour of the grey because it’s got a pretty speckled kind of finish, but maybe I could get the peach too…! xx

    Yay, I hope we get the minis of there in my Boots! Jealous, much? is calling my name.

    I like Jealous, much? Steel Your Heart (i know, its spring!) and Artificial Sweetener

  4. I generally hate pastels, but these are really intriguing. You’re Blushing looks great, but I might have something similar.

    I love that, it’s the perfect spring nude!! Can’t wait to get that and “You’re Blushing,” it looks like Essie’s Lady Like but darker!
