KBShimmer The Grape Beyond & Would Jubilee It? Swatches and Review

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

KBShimmer is celebrating it’s 5th year in business and the creator, Christy, made a stunning duo to celebrate!  Both shades will be available separately, but were made to go together!

The Grape Beyond:


The Grape Beyond is a medium purple matte finish shade with turquoise shimmer within.  I love mattes, so this was an instant hit with me!  Dry time was good for The Grape Beyond, but it wasn’t so insanely fast that you have to rush your paint job.  I used 2 coats for this photo.



Closeup you an see a little more of the shimmer!  Not a fan of mattes?  That’s ok, not everyone is… but just add top coat..

The Grape Beyond with Clearly On Top:


The Grape Beyond is a stunner with KBShimmer Clearly On Top Fast Dry Top Coat!  The turquoise shimmer pops just a bit more this way too!



Would Jubilee It?:


Would Jubilee It? is a clear base packed with fuchsia, silver and aqua circle glitter, royal blue hex glitter and silver micro bar glitter.  The colors really pop over The Grape Beyond!  This is 1 coat of Would Jubilee It? over The Grape Beyond.



This is a truly stunning duo and it looks even better in person.  A gorgeous way to celebrate 5 years in business!

The KBShimmer Celebration Duo will be available on August 8th through the KBShimmer Website as well as on Harlow & Co!

Retail Price:

$8.75 each on KBShimmer.com

$9.00 on Harlow & Co

I had no idea they’ve been in business 5 years! And I love The Grape Beyond–super pretty :) And yay that it doesn’t dry so fast that you get that lump effect!

I thought the grape beyond in its natural state was awesome till I saw it with topcoat. It’s even better!
I just might be getting my first KBs now. Love this duo and your swatches are wonderful as always.
