Powder Perfect - Castle collection


Hi lovelies!

Would you believe only two weeks after releasing the gorgeous Quest for Paradise part II, Powder Perfect have six more amazing shades to tempt you in the lead up to Xmas? It's true, and today I have a gorgeous range of cremes and shimmers that make up the Castle collection - get your credit cards ready!


Before we get stuck in, here's an introduction to the collection from Powder Perfect:

"I noticed, first, the dust motes dancing in the light as I walked through what must have been the library. The carpets had begun to fade and ebb away, and items were strewn about as though the last occupants had fled at but a moment’s notice. I found a discarded wax seal on the desk – emblazoned with the family’s crest. A once glorious family, the owners of this house had now faded from local recollection. All that remained was the crumbling shell of their grand home."

CRENELLATIONS


Crenellations - Powder Perfect Castle collection

I knew it was going to be love here, grey always makes me a little weak at the knees. Two coat perfection, which I have entirely misrepresented in my swatch - it's been disgustingly hot here lately and fast dry top coat + gross humidity is not an ideal pairing. It was lovely and smooth on it's own and I hope to swatch it again soon to show it off better!

The charcoal grey takes on different tones in different light, sometimes having a slight olive appearance and others hinting a cooler blue. Either way it's right up my alley!

FAMILY CREST

Family Crest - Powder Perfect Castle collection

Delicious mulled wine for your nails with a surprising pink shimmer, Family Crest may not agree with my skin tone but eff you skin, I wear what I want!! Lovers of a vampy red will adore this, and with a flawless two coats needed you really can't go wrong. Oh, and guess what?! These swatches are with no top coat - it's super glossy all on it's own!

GILDED BEAUTY

Gilded Beauty - Powder Perfect Castle collection

Another fabulous metallic shade in the vein of Pieces of Eight, this time a coppery rosy gold that shimmers and shines in even low light. This is truly unique in my collection.

This amazing polish was opaque in one smooth coat, and needed no top coat (though I'd always recommend top coat for longer wear time). I'm already thinking this will make a great accent nail for New Years Eve!

LIBRARY DUST

Library Dust - Powder Perfect Castle collection

UNF. Dusty periwinkle perfection! Soft like a cloud, with a hint of grey, it's one stunning blue that makes me want to frolic in a field of daisies or talk in cliches. I'm utterly gaga for this shade!

Again just two perfect smooth coats for a gorgeous opaque finish. It was quite glossy alone but I did top coat it for extra shine.

ONCE GLORIOUS

Once Glorious - Powder Perfect Castle collection

Lobster skin aside, this soft lavender is totally heavenly. It has the delicate balance of wispy softness and saturated colour down to an art. It's almost impossible to fault the cremes in this collection!

Much like the rest, it has a gorgeous formula, though I needed a third coat to get this one really opaque. You can see how gorgeously smooth this is, just a lick of top coat to gloss it up and you'll be feeling entirely glorious.

RECOLLECTIONS

Recollections - Powder Perfect Castle collection

All good things must come to an end, and all great things come to an end in the nude. Recollections is a perfectly balanced nude beige that is going to be my new essential palate cleanser. You'll be entirely unsurprised to hear this was also a two coater, faultless and flawless. Top coat it for nails as smooth as a babies bottom!
