It’s time for the KBShimmer Fall 2016 Collection! You’ll notice that right this second I only have 11 of the 12 shades (my fault) so I’ll be updating this post tomorrow night or Saturday with the missing 12th shade.
And this post is now updated with the 12th shade! Thank you KBShimmer for making it possible, and thanks to everyone for waiting!
Basically I tested the blogger code to make sure it worked, and only put 11 of the 12 shades in my basket to review. I noticed this morning when I got up to swatch them and the KBShimmer team was nice enough to overnight me the missing shade.
For Fall 2016, KBShimmer focused on cremes, glitter crellies and holographics. These shades work really well to transition from Summer to Fall easily!
Let’s get to it!
KBShimmer Sweet Devotion
KBShimmer Sweet Devotion is a white crelly base with blue, red, yellow, orange, green and brown glitters. There are some various sized hexes and some bar glitters mixed in this one. KBShimmer was inspired by fun sized candies and their candy wrappers!
I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
KBShimmer Poppy Kisses
KBShimmer Poppy Kisses is an orange toned rusty red linear holographic. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
KBShimmer Turning Pointe
KBShimmer Turning Pointe is one of my top picks for this collection! This is a new addition to the Mega Flame line and is a soft peachy pink sheer jelly packed with silver holographic microglitter. i used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
KBShimmer Tiers Of Joy
KBShimmer Tiers of Joy is a soft yellow toned beige crelly base with gold holographic, pink, black, orange and coppery glitters mixed in. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
KBShimmer Sage It Ain’t So
KBShimmer Sage It Ain’t So is a soft sage green crelly base with copper, lavender, and silver holographic glitters mixed in, as well as silver holographic shimmer sprinkled in. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
KBShimmer Flake Me Home Tonight
KBShimmer Flake Me Home Tonight is a medium minty metallic base with silver flakes and holographic microglitters mixed in. This is a similar finish to the Birthstone Collection shades! I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
KBShimmer Little Boy Hue
KBShimmer Little Boy Hue is a soft, medium baby blue that looks a little dusty. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
This creme has perfect application. It’s a tad on the thicker side, but in the best way possible. It isn’t runny and spreads easy and self levels like a dream.
KBShimmer The Best Mum Ever
KBShimmer The Best Mum Ever is a medium lavender crelly base with pinkish red micro flakes mixed in. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
KBShimmer Orchidding Me?
KBShimmer Orchidding Me? is my top pick! You should have seen that coming though – purple and holo and gorgeous? Yes please! This is a warm purple linear holographic with a strong flame. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
KBShimmer Oh My Ganache
KBShimmer Oh My Ganache is another favorite! This is a rich chocolate brown linear holographic. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
KBShimmer Fright This Way
KBShimmer Fright This Way is a Halloween inspired polish! This is a deep black jelly base with holographic shimmer scattered in as well as purple glitter. I used 3 thin coats and glossy top coat for these photos.
The hex glitters look like they have a curl to them, but that’s pure reflection. The glitters lay flat and had no curling.
KBShimmer Grin and Gerbera It
KBShimmer Grin and Gerbera It is a warm dusty rose creme. I used 2 perfect coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
KBShimmer Fall 2016 Collection Overview
I really like that this collection isn’t all deep, dark Fall colors. There are some darker shades like Oh My Ganache and Fright This Way, but also lighter and vibrant shades to make the seasonal transition easier. I had no issues with application from these 12 shades.
Also, while supplies last, Fall collection orders will receive metallic purple bat glitters!
My top picks in this collection are: Turning Pointe, Poppy Kisses, Sweet Devotion, Oh My Ganache and Orchidding Me?
Price: $9.25 Each
Release Date: August 19th, 2016
