Let’s keep the momentum going here – another Fall polish for your viewing pleasure: China Glaze Midtown Magic from the Metro collection!
This was one of my most coveted shades this season, and really the only one I wanted from ‘Metro.’ It’s a deep, dark, rich-looking plummy brown with amazing greeny-gold shimmer throughout. It does a great job of imitating the way a city looks at night, with all the golden lights shining against an inky sky. Magic indeed 🙂 Unfortunately, my photos don’t do it justice at all. Although…I don’t know if the weather happened to be dreary while I was wearing this shade, but in person it didn’t look as magical as it did in other people’s swatches. But then, on occasion, it would REALLY come to life. It’s hard to explain exactly what I mean here, I guess ultimately it was a somewhat tempermental shade and didn’t always show it’s best side, though it most certainly has one!
Anyway, here are some pics:In the right lighting, the sparkle is much more intense and gorgeous. Regardless of my poor photos / bad lighting, this is a great shade that is very wearable with just about anything, and adds a bit of glamour due to the shimmer. The formulation was good, thicker but flowed easily – however, I did find that it chipped faster than normal on me. Not too seriously, but just something to note.
Despite me not selling this shade all that well, it really is quite pretty and I think a definite shade to add to anyone’s collection. It’s relatively unique and perfect for the Fall season (and into Winter, really). If you can still find it (because it was the one shade that was sold out the first time I went to pick it up), it’s at Chatters salons across Canada, for $6.49 CDN.
I hope everyone had a great weekend!! Thanks for reading 🙂
