I was initially attracted to this been blue colour but on bare lips, its a very shiny clear gloss that gives you plump lips look. It has very fine pearly particles as well as shimmering bits of blue... Half way thru the tube, i like this very much...
I am usually a Ayura girl for foundation but since i cant get it anymore in Singapore, I was recommended to try the HR Colour Clone. I have this in 20- Vanilla. I like the feel of the liquid, very smooth and blendable. Coverage is medium-full and the colour initially looked rather dark on my wrist but upon application of the whole face, it looks very natural. Lasting power is not bad but i hit the mid-day shine as usual...
This is a summer smell... rather fruity and yummy... smells like fruits, melon and sweet sugar syrup.... i have this in 100ml EDT but most prob will not repurchase as i am not even one third thru and i am rather "sick" of it...

I like the sleek jewel like look of the bottle but the small opening at the bottom leaks a bit and the cream squirts out when you lift the cap. The lathering properties is good and the after touch smooth and not too drying... Smells a bit like my YSL Nu shower gel though... rose and a bit of a spicy touch...
I am normally on the look out for a light colour to wear on hands but this glittery peach/gold colour did not work for me. It was not smooth finish like the normal OPIs and even with top coat, it did not look smooth. tried many times and each time ended looking like i have dirty smokers' hands stained with time... not my cuppa tea.
This is also creamy not pearlised nor shimmery but it somehow brightens up the skin like no others. It happens to have this "light reflecting" feel i don't get with Red Red Rhine... although both are neutral reds, i still prefer this more! Application is a breeze and two coats gives a lasting smooth looking mani for up to 5 days.
If you like a working red, this will be the one... creamy with no shimmer nor pearl, this is a basic red that is neutral... not incline to be warm or cool...
In the bottle it looks a bit boring but the thing with OPI is you gotta try it on the nails for the exact look... I went to do a mani and just wanted a soft nude pink for work... i fell in love after it was applied on me... not brownish like in the bottle, its pearly lilac pink looks fab on hands especailly if you have very looooong nails like mine, sometimes dark colours just dont do it.... Subtle, sophisticated. Lovely for everyday use.
Did someone say HOT??? this is my HG in all the sexy pinks and i always get compliments as this takes a bit of dare to get it onto my super long nails... Remind me of the girls in the Midori ads... *LOL* sexy, stylish, i like!
In the bottle it looks to be a very sweet pale pink for a french mani... but I am rather olive tone so this made my skin looked very sallow. Moreover, it streaks very badly no matter how many coats you go over or the different type of base coats you try... Too bad this does not work out for me.
I feel like a major damper but this did nothing for me and at the price i paid, i am better off smearing cuticle oil onto the wet polished surface... And this evaporated on me as i stored it in a cool dry place but with the dripper instead of the regular cap... Partically money evaporated into thin air...*sad*
This was one of the first OPI i bought. I love the deepish red colour- very sexy and this has a slight cooler undertone. I like the look of this on hands and toes and the application is a breeze... Last well too!
I am comparing this to Romeo and Juliet as well as Russian to a Party... They all look slightly different in the bottle due to the pearl powder but once it goes on (full 2 coats) the difference is really rather marginal... I am rather fair so all burgundy reddish looks good on me... (hands and toes)
I had a tough time buying this as it was out of stock almost everywhere! It is like a deep deep plum colour, bordering on black in dim lights. It is not as goth-feel as if you have black on your toes... IMHO i cant carry this off on my hands, looks scary! *LOL*
this is the best nude i have come about in a long long time. It has a pearlised feel in the taupe-brown colour and it looks absolutely fabulous on the hands, elegant, clean and neat. Finish last about 5 days (washing and typing included) and the brush gives a wide smooth coverage.
