China Glaze Avant Garden Collection (and a link to Hologlam swatches!)

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 30 - 2013

Spring is sprung, the grass is ris. I wonders where the birdies is?

China Glaze have released their latest 12-piece Avant Garden Spring 2013 collection, comprising of two halves.  One, distinctly pastel and the other… an altogether brighter affair.

China Glaze Avant Garden Collection

Pastel Petals

The Pastel Petals (shown above) feature six soft shades including:

Life is Rosy: blushed mauve
Pink-ie Promise: iridescent baby pink
Tart-y for the Party: light lavender creme
Fade Into Hue: periwinkle creme
Keep Calm, Paint On: sea foam green
Dandy Lyin’ Around: shimmery vanilla icing

China Glaze Avant Garden Collection

Blooming Brights

The other half of the collection is comprised of six brighter shades, known as the Blooming Brights and includes:

Budding Romance: moss green
Sunday Funday: bright blue
Fancy Pants: indigo with pink and purple shimmer
Snap My Dragon: bright red with pink shimmer
Passion for Petals: bright salmon-pink
Mimosas Before Manis: coral with a light wash of shimmer

Are any of these pretties calling to you?  I’m tempted by Fade Into Hue (can’t get enough periwinkle!) and Tart-y for the Party but I can’t say the bottle shots are knocking my socks off.  So, their Tranzitions collection was a disaster (trust me, I have a sample that I can’t even bring myself to assault your eyes with) and their Spring collection is uninspiring… you know what’s next though don’t you?

OMG HOLOGLAM *runs around, multiple flails* (and they’ve been swatched already!)

Roll the hell on Summer 2013!

    Hologlam range looks nice but I bought the Color Club Halo Hues just before Christmas http://www.thesubtleshimmer.com/?s=color+club and they’re by far the loveliest holos I’ve tried and the easiest to work with considering they have such crazy rainbows. You probably have them already but if you haven’t and you love dazzling holos, they’re well worth a guilt free mini splurge while you wait :-)

    Halo Hues are near impossible to get but Color Club have just launched a spring collection of holo’s!

    My favoured holo’s are Hit’s by a long shot, or indie brands
