KBShimmer Men are from Mars-ala | Spring 2015

Shortly after Marsala was chosen by Pantone as Color of the Year for 2015, KBShimmer hit the ground running and released a sienna brown holographic creme in the upcoming year's signature shade.  While I'm not a fan of the particular color selected by Pantone, I like what KBShimmer did, adding just enough pink undertones to make this autumnal and not adobe.

The holographic gleam is really the winner here; a delightful silvery shimmer in natural light and a blaze of rainbow glory in direct sunlight.  The formula was also perfection and applied smoothly in two coats.

What are your thoughts on Marsala?  Are you excited by it or just meh-ed out?

  1. Love that macro shot of this polish. Just stunning!

  2. I kind of like the Marsala color but I know everyone doesn't, lol. I love this polish, but I don't really expect to not like anything from the whizzes at KBShimmer.

  3. If nothing else, they are killer at naming their polishes.

  4. Very beautiful swatches of this polish!
