It’s been pretty hot lately, but that doesn’t keep me from getting all excited about Fall collections. I’ve been working my butt off lately to get a lot of things swatched because once again I have fallen behind. Now that my parents are going back home after their very (very!) long visit, hopefully I’ll have more time to myself and be on a more regular schedule with my swatching and posting. Today I have the KBShimmer Fall Collection for 2016, and I can already tell you I’m in love. Let me show you my swatches below.
KBShimmer Little Boy Hue
KBShimmer Grin and Gerbera It

Oh good Lord! The holos in this collection are out of this world. Because my lighting set up does not really let holos shine, I did a quick swatch of 4 shades in direct sunlight. I posted the picture on my instagram so check it out:
Because I tend to swatch at night, I don't have the opportunity to really showcase holos in direct sunlight. My lighting set up does not do holos justice! My review for the @kbshimmer Fall 2016 Collection will be going up tomorrow, but I did a quick swatch of 4 of the holos from the collection in direct sunlight. From pinky to pointer: Poppy Kisses, Oh My Ganache, Orchidding Me? and Turning Pointe. Seriously….you must get these. I'm in love with all of them. #presssample #kbshimmerfall2016 #kbshimmerxoflifeandlacquer #holo #holosexual
I am never disappointed by KBShimmer and this collection is no exception. The formula on all of these beauties is great which means that they are opaque in color and have a great consistency. I used two coats of polish for all my swatches and one coat of glossy top coat. I really can’t pick any favorites because they are all so gorgeous, but from the holos, I absolutely adore Orchidding Me? and Oh My Ganache.
The official release date for the KBShimmer Fall Collection is 08/19/2016. For your convenience I have listed all the places where you can purchase KBShimmer:
