Color Club Alter Ego Collection Spring 2011

Hey guys! I know I haven't posted in awhile but I've been super busy and I am very behind in posting my swatches and review. I think I will be scheduling a few posts soon when I get the time. I have so much to show!

Today I have Color Club's Alter Ego collection. The collection contains two sets; Reveal Your Mystery, which consists six cremes, and Alter Ego Keep it Under Cover, which consists of six shimmers. I was a little iffy about buying the whole collection, and I must admit I do regret buying the whole collection. You'll see why after.

Reveal Your Mystery Set

Secret Rendezvous is a lavender creme. 3 coats

Sheer Disguise is a light grey creme. 3 coats

Give Me a Hint is a taupe/grey/purple creme. 3 coats

Get A Clue is a soft pastel pink creme. 3 coats

Incognito is a sheer nude creme. 3 coats

Revealed is a peachy pink creme. 3 coats

These cremes were a little bit tough to handle. They all required three coats for me for full coverage. Three coats wasn't even a choice. The formula was a little thin but still manageable. Colors were seen before and nothing special. I didn't have a favorite from this set.

Alter Ego Keep it Under Cover Set

Alter Ego is a grey-purple base with flecks of gold and silver. Similar to Hard Candy's Mr. Wrong but more shiny. 3 coats

Ulterior Motive is a dark fuchsia shimmer with flashes of pink and purple shimmer. 3 coats

Masquerading is a metallic grey steel. 2 coats. A little bit streaky with visible brush strokes, but that's how all metallic are anyway.

Alias is a blue purple with glass flecks and flashes of green, pink, silver shimmer. 3 coats. Very awesome color that needs to be seen in person to value!

Secret Agent is a bright purple with frost-like finish. 2 coats. My picture makes it appear more blue than it is.

Total Mystery is a blue purple shimmer. 3 coats

In this collection, I actually have a few choices that I like. My favorites happens to be alias, alter ego, and total mystery. Those three colors shine out from the rest and it's quite unique. The formula was these were also a bit on the thin side. Majority of them also needed three coats for full coverage but as you can see on some pictures there is still visible nail line.

What do you guys think of this collection? Any favorites?

That's all I have for today!
