Great Lakes Lacquer The Sunset Dissected Collection Overview

Great Lakes Lacquer The Sunset Dissected Collection Overview

So first I want to mention that I received this collection over a month ago, along with a few other bloggers. The formulas were thick and difficult to work with. Instead of putting them out as is, Great Lakes Lacquer pulled them to reformulate – and what I’m showing here is the reformulated collection. It seriously makes my heart sing when I see a maker who takes their bloggers opinions into mind, values their brand and does what they can to improve and put out a quality product instead of pushing forward with a collection that would be difficult. I had no application issues with the shades I was resent and they applied beautifully. So seriously Great Lakes Lacquer – you did an amazing job on this collection!

Color wise, I like the slightly dustier take on the shades as well as a little vamp and a bright shade. It’s a nice transition into Spring shades.
