Madam Glam Swatches and Review

I was recently contacted by Madam Glam, an online retailer of makeup and nail polish, to try out a few of their products.  I chose 4 shades I thought were perfect for fall and could encapsulate a nice mini collection.  So did I like this new to me brand?  Keep reading to find out!

Underground Queen
A medium grey creme with a blue-undertone, Underground Queen almost appears to have a purple lean to it which I absolutely adore.  Rich and glossy, Underground Queen applied perfectly in two smooth coats.  I can see this bottle getting lots of use this fall and winter.

Lilac Madness
A dusty lavender with a hint of mauve, Lilac Madness is a divine way to inject a softer, more autumnal pastel into your fall palette.  The formula is a bit jellier than Underground Queen but dries to an opaque an glossy creme in two coats.  Another lovefest here.

Mon Cheri
I'm a tough critic of red polishes: they easily apply cheaply, can be runny and thin, pool cuticles and nail walls, and need multiple coats for opacity.  Not gonna lie, I was concerned Mon Cheri would have the same issue.  But with a delicate hand, Mon Cheri despite it's jellier formula, covers opaquely in 2-3 coats and doesn't run or pool.  A great blue-toned classic 50s red, this is a bombshell of a shade and must have for any red polish lover.

Kiss and Tell
The only disappointment in the batch was Kiss and Tell, an oxblood creme.  The formula on this was horrific: sticky, gummy, and impossible to spread, it felt like I was polished semi dry glue onto my nails.  I don't know if I got a dud bottle, but it was just a mess to apply and after having such luck with the other three polishes I'm going to chalk it up to a bad batch.

Upon reading my review, the company immediately sent me another bottle of Kiss and Tell and let me tell you, my first bottle was most definitely a dud.  The second bottle applied just as dreamily as the first 3 and consistently as the polishes I tried in my subsequent review of their fall releases.  Madam Glam polishes are stellar and their customer service is just as on target.
