Below: Siren, a vibrant reddish/coral creme with impeccable application.
Below: Goddess, a rich plumb creme that applied flawlessly. I added a matte coat to it and it's lovely that way also.
Below: Temptress, a deep wine shade with gold shimmer. It appears darker than this in less light. I love the gold shimmer in this one.

Orly's Holiday 2009 collection is entitled "Femme Fatale" and includes 2 cremes and 1 shimmer. These will be available beginning in November. This collection doesn't boast your typical 'holiday' shades, but it is a very nice collection of shades that will look pretty not only during the holidays, but throughout the year. At first glance I thought the lone shimmer, Temptress, would be my favorite one, but after using all three of them, I'll have to rank them as follows: #1 Siren (described as a bright red creme, but appears to be a bright red coral creme), #2 Goddess (described as a red brown creme, but on me it appears to be a rich medium plum), and #3 Temptress (described as a deep red shimmer, but I will describe it as a deep wine laced with gold shimmer). They're all fantastic shades, but the 2 cremes won my heart because of their vibrant color and their application. 2 coats and I had a perfect finish. All three of them applied perfectly in 2 coats and the formula is just perfect, with a medium consistency that stayed right where I put it without any pooling. I was completely taken with the cremes particularly because I don't pride myself on being able to apply cremes well, and I always feel a bit of apprehension when I use them. Although it's a small collection with colors that you don't typically associate with the holidays, it's a lovely group of shades that as Orly says, "are the perfect accessories to complete all holiday ensembles."
And here's a little fun fact I recently learned...Orly is actually the name of Jeff Pink's (Orly's creator) wife!
