Sinful Colors Luminary

I don't know what's up with the Sinful Colors LE displays, but they are typically mispopulated or completely cleared out.  I searched high and low for their Pirates of the Caribbean dupe collection and randomly found it at a Bed, Bath, and Beyond months after it was released.


The Sheer Shimmers Collection, which came out for about a week in April, was one of those collections that just completely whizzed by me.  And that's pretty fast considering I probably spend a third of my life wandering the aisles of Walgreens.  After checking the same display for the fifteenth time --because you know, polish magically shows up if you wish hard enough -- I found myself begrudgingly checking out the core Sinful display for no other reason than to look less pathetic in the polish aisle.


While scrounging around, I noticed an orange that looked misplaced.  Lo and behold, when I pulled it from the back of some random other color's sleeve, I saw that it was Luminary, the orange shimmer from the elusive SS collection.  I didn't even care if I wanted that shade or not, it would be mine on principle!


Thus, I give you my one and only Sheer Shimmer.  Sadly, this applied horribly, pooling at my cuticles and just creating a jellied mess of orange glitter.  In three coats, however, it became fairly opaque and dried a cool peach color.


I like Luminary but I don't love Luminary.   I still want the other blues and purples from this collection but alas, it appears not meant to be.  Sigh.  Major sigh.


What say you, ladies?

  5. Where I live, everything is always a couple months behind what everyone else is getting. I have learnt not to be disappointed unless several months go by and I still don't see them.

  6. Lol, I find myself walking and pacing in the nail polish aisles hoping I find what I'm looking for even though it is clearly not there. Too bad the formula isn't the best, but at least you found one! :)

  11. I have this one, but afraid to wear it! Oranges and I don't always mix, but it was so pretty! Looks pretty on you!

  12. Yeah, it was a frustrating collection, wasn't it?  Thanks though!

  13. In some ways that's nice because you could potentially get the same polishes from a blog sale for a fraction of the price by the time the collections roll out to you.

  14. Does that make us a little bit crazy? ;)

  15. Thanks, Tara!  You should totally do peach though, since you have the perfect skin tone.  (Take that as a direct challenge.)

  16. Me too!  I never even saw it in person!

  17. Thanks!  Some people are wary about orange with their skin tone, but I've always found myself really gravitating towards it.  Not that it's my best color, I just really like it!

  18. Yup, although I'm sure I'd love the others from the collection.  Sigh.

  22. At least you found one. I wish I would've snagged some extras when they were here.

  23. Who knows? Maybe they'll do a repromote soon? SC tends to do that often thankfully!

  24. I hate when polish's don't go on well, but sometimes the color can outweigh the formula for me. This looks so pretty, and I think I still want it even though the formula was so bad!

  25. The rural area I live in never gets anything in Sinful but for their core colors and that is limited and always major picked over. Thus of course never see the Ltd collections but on blogs. I like this shade - but like you not in LOVE with it. I think last spring I would have liked it more as I was wearing softer shades then and not now - I am all about brights or nudes right now.
