Overview

If you want a nice mix of hex glitters, this is a collection to look at.  The clear base was a little on the thicker side, but not impossible to work with.  I was still able to brush a decent amount done without having to use the dabbing effect.  I did notice that the base had a slightly stronger scent than I’m use to as well.  Nothing offensive, but it was a slightly stronger scent.  Aside from that, I like the mix of colors within each color, especially Samba!

Price: $2.99

Where To Buy: Where To Buy: Rite Aid, Walgreens & CVS

What did you think of the Rio Collection?  Any you would plan on picking up?

Ohhhh I like the look of some of these, I’m a huge sucker for SH at the moment. I have one of the Spring glitters, which sounds similar as the base if also quite thick. I think that Samba is also my fave
