Color Club Beyond The Mistletoe Review and Giveaway! **CLOSED**

Okay so I have GOOD news.  First of all I started a BLOG SALE!  Please check it out and buy things :) I'm really trying hard to get some extra money saved!  It's open to both US and International buyers!  It's got some great stuff on there.

Next up I have a review of a few of the colors from the Color Club Beyond the Mistletoe holiday collection!

First: Sugarplum Fairy!  A beautiful silver/lavender holographic glitter

This one is really exciting!  It's is a mixture of gorgeous silver/lavendar holo glitters in a clear base that looks awesome in the sun!  These pictures are shown with 3 coats.  It's pretty opaque after 3 coats.  It's also a dupe of Funky Fingers Sand and Stilettos. 

Next: Beyond the Mistletoe!  A lovely seafoam green-ish holo glitter!

Beyond the Mistletoe is another lovely holographic glitter polish consisting of green holo glitter in a clear base.  This one is thinner than Sugarplum Fairy and it took 4 coats to become opaque.  It is also a dupe of a Funky Fingers polish: Baby, Baby, Baby.  

Last: Holiday Splendor!  My favorite of the whole collection! (And I haven't even tried them all)

Darker lighting to show the vibrant color!
Holiday Splendor is different than the rest of the collection as it consists of green/teal holographic glitter in a green jelly-like base.  It was easily the most gorgeous color of the whole collection.  This one only took 2 coats to become opaque.  I don't know what else to say!  I'm usually not a fan of teals or greens with my skin tone, but seriously this is probably in my top 10 faves now.  It's perfect for the holidays!

Now, there are three other colors in this set, but the day I was swatching these I got lazy and frustrated with my lighting situation, so this is all ya got right now :)

However, you'll have the chance to swap them for yourselves because I'm giving a set away!

In addition to the entire Color Club Beyond the Mistletoe Collection you'll also get:
--1 Maybelline's Lots of Lashes Mascara in Very Black,
--1 Maybelline New Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm in Cherry Me,
-- 2 Sally Hansen Nail Prisms: Lapis Amethyst, and South Sea Pearl!

Here are some additional photos:

The Color Club Collection is new and purchased by me and the Maybelline products were presented to me by BzzAgent to give away as I see fit :)  I threw in the SH Nail Prisms but they have been both been swatched one time on one hand (which I will post within the next few days so you can see what they look like!).
