I’m always forgetting to post about SinfulColors collections, mostly because it’s hard for me to find new Sinful collections where I am (only the core collection is easily available). Come on, Sinful! You’ve got Revlon’s distribution behind you and I still can’t find your LE displays?!
Anyway, I’m posting summer and fall collections in two batches. This post contains the Summer 2017 collections. Obviously, this is late—and these collections have already disappeared from the SinfulColors website!—but you may still be able to find the displays and collections near you.
Earlier this month, Julep released a Mystery Box which includes two non-mysterious new shades: a blue cream and a black light top coat.
In addition, their July 2017 collection consists of six new—and one re-released—bright cream shades. And, of course, the latest addition to their 2017 Zodiac collection is a new shade for the sign of Cancer (June 21–July 22).
Despite this month’s collection name and the release of a pure white polish (often used under neon shades to make them pop), I’m not entirely sure all the brights are actually neons. Most are certainly bright, though!
Here are all the new shades:
Mystery Box “Let’s Glow Out”
Julep Let’s Glow Out Mystery Box (June 2017), US$24.99. Includes Sibyl (pink tinted black light top coat) and Amalia (Riviera blue crème).
Julep Neon Nights (July 2017) Nail Colors. US$14 each.
China Glaze’s new Summer 2017 collection is called Summer Reign. It consists of 12 new shades in bright and neon hues.
I certainly like the looks of Emerald Bae (ugh the name), Rosé My Name, and Summer Reign. The presence of gold and silver metallics, usually the bane of winter holiday collections, is a little befuddling! They do make the collection look a little like a beach/winter holiday mashup.
We are thrilled to share with you 6 new shades for Summer: Ultra Brites! Not only are these glowing shades the perfect way to brighten up your summer, but they are also safe! Our formula uses the latest environmentally and cosmetically approved pigments in a highly stable formula. This means you get all of the BRIGHT with none of the industrial yuck and commonly associated with colors of this kind (and banned worldwide).
