Finally I've finished swatching the last of my Orly Cosmic FX shades, and here and the last two. As with the others, I needed 3 coats to get an even finish, but the unique look of the majority of the shades in this collection are worth that third coat for me.
Above: Lunar Eclipse is a bright and rich royal blue with lighter aqua blue glitter--or as Orly commented on one of my previous posts on a shade from this line--The Cosmic FX line doesn't use glitter. The multidimensional shine is the result of our Mineral FX raw material technology. I thought that was interesting that it's not actually glitter, although it is easier just to call it that!
Below: Out of this World is a slightly toned down version of grape with violet glitter, or Mineral FX raw material, I should say! This photo was taken under cloudy skies and the violet is actually more vivid in brighter lighting.
All in all, this is a collection that lived up to all of the hype it received prior to its release. As I mentioned in previous posts, a couple of the shades are quite similar to other shades I already had (Halley's Comet & It's Not Rocket Science). I love the finishes, and the duo chrome that a few of them have, especially Space Cadet. I'm not a fan of the price tag, but that's the price we pay for new technology. I personally haven't worn any of mine long enough to know, but I'm curious as to whether or not the Mineral FX raw material adds to the longevity of wear time.
