Yesssss, more mattes. Am I loving this trend or what? I am having a ball reviewing collections from different brands. Everyone’s mattes are different and I have yet run into one that I didn’t like.
You’ve seen me review Nubar before. Remember the Going Green collection? I am STILL in love with that Reclaim. Seriously the best green holo ever. Anywhoovers….let’s check out their mattes.
Prevail is one of those colors that you don’t see everyday. It’s very interesting. Like a dirty eggplant. Doesn’t look too matte-y though. Which is fine with me because it’s a funky and unique color anyway.
Oh wow….now I can get down with this. Contempo would be pretty boring if it wasn’t a matte. But since it is, it kinda rocks. It’s like a pearlized velvety tomato. I love it!
Vital is cool. Nothing spectacular. I didn’t think about it then but it would probably be insane with a glittery topcoat.
Nubar’s mattes remind me a lot of Zoya’s mattes. They’ve got that velvet-y thing goin’ on. I’ve learned to appreciate mattes like this. They aren’t super super matte but are shiny enough to appease even the most anti-matte chica.
My only issues with these is that they are a bit of struggle to remove. And yes, like most mattes—you’ll see chipping after a day or so. But I love ’em so much that I don’t even care.
You can snag these darlings here. Only $25 for the entire set. Not bad at ‘tal!
