Catrices’ new Limited Edition, Hollywood’s Fabulous 40ties, was inspired by beautiful ladies such as Marlene Dietrich, Ingrid Bergman and Katharine Hepburn. The colors are classy and elegant and all of them are cremes. I thought of getting one of the lipsticks too when I found the full display of the products of this LE, but I decided against it. The colors are very pretty and exactly what I like to wear, so I figured I already had something like it and wouldn’t need any more new lipsticks! But on to the nail polish!
Doris’ Darling is the vampiest of the nail polishes. It is an aubergine creme, and covers in two coats. Solid, and a great fall color.
Red Butler is a medium, pink toned red creme. The name is funny and the only man’s name in this collection. The color itself isn’t that exciting or unique, but I assumed that the creators frankly didn’t give a damn about that. 2 coats.
Marlene’s Favourite is the one I liked least. It’s a coral creme polish that looks a tad dusty and leans towards brown more than towards orange or pink. I used two coats.
Holly Rose Wood is a red creme leaning towards brown. Apparently it is inspired by rosewood (surprise!), and it was a bit of a diva concerning the application, as it was thin and decided to flood my cuticles without apparent reason. I ended up using three thin coats.
My favourite of the collection is, by far, The nude Scene. It’s a very soft antique dusty pink leaning towards sand – it’s easy to apply and looks understated yet elegant. I didn’t expect myself to like it that much, but it is extremely pretty. 2 coats, no issues with patchyness or it not levelling out. Perfection.
Did you get anything from this collection yet? Are you planning on buying something?
