Face of Australia Glitterati Collection swatches & review

5 Comments

*Nothing to disclose

Good evening! As promised I did something different this weekend and did swatches of the rest of the Face of Australia Glitterati Collection I own. I have never done it before but I have to say it was pretty fun. This weekend I didn’t get to purchase any more of the collection, so the below is just the four of the others I own, apart from Boogie Wonderland, which I reviewed here. The last pictures of each of the swatch photos are taken outdoors.

Dancing Queen

I am wearing two coats over two coats of Ulta3 Lily White, without top coat. Dancing Queen is a clear base with black large and small matte hexes and large and small gold hexes. It’s very pretty on, however there was some slight curing on the larger gold hexes. I reckon this could be toned down though with a top coat. The glitters spread quite evenly over the nail, I didn’t have to do any placing at all.

Funky Town

This is three coats, but you could easily use two, I just wanted to make double sure it was coated. No top coat. Funky Town is a bluey-purple creme base with blue, gold and black hexes in small and large sizes. The problem I had with this formula is that the creme was so thick it would actually cover up the glitter so you couldn’t see it underneath! So beware. I found Funky Town reminded me of Emily de Molly Regal Beginnings, which I compared in the photo below. Similar idea, but totally different execution.

Face of Australia Heart of Glass

Heart of Glass

Heart of Glass is a creamy pink base with small purple square glitters, large red square glitters, small holographic glitters, small and large pink hexes, white bar glitters and pink heart glitters. Phew! That was a lot. This three coats with no top coat. I have to say, this one impressed me more than I thought, I thought it was going to be sheer, but I didn’t find that at all. Unfortunately though you have to dig and place the heart glitters, but once you know that it’s not a problem. Also, there was a slight curling of the red square glitters, which, again, I reckon could be smoothed with a top coat.

This is a clear base with tiny red glitters, small red hexes, small matte black black hexes, small purple hexes and clear bar glitters. This is one coat over two coats of Ulta3 Lily White. The glitter coverage of this is great. You could potentially do the whole nail in three to four coats.

DETAILS

  • Where to buy: Priceline or Kmart
  • Cost: AU$4.95
  • Volume: 13ml

I really like this collection. I am a bit sad about the regularity of the curling glitters but I think you can get away with it with a top coat. If I go to Priceline this week I think I will definitely pick up the other three to complete the set. What do you think of the collection? Thanks for reading!

  1. Love it!! My favourite would have to be Dancing Queen and Looking for some Hot Stuff!

  2. You’ve gotta love the names they come up with for these nail polishes πŸ™‚ I especially like Hot Stuff and Heart of Glass, but they’re all gorgeous.
