Hi there! Today I bring you the Femme Fatale Cosmetics COTM Duo for October. Usually the COTM is just one polish, but I think with October being such a great time of year for inspiration (think Halloween and all things gory in general) it would be hard for anyone to keep it to just one polish when inspired by Stephen King’s novel The Shining. So this is what Sophie (the creator and owner of Femme Fatale) has done. The COTM Duo is currently available at the Femme Fatale Cosmetics Australian site in a 48-hour presale and it will be heading to the Femme Fatale Cosmetics international site in mid-October. Let’s take a look.
Cabin Fever stole my heart straight away. If you like Femme Fatale’s Liquid Pearl (from last year’s The Midsummer Night’s Dream Collection), then you’ll also be a fan of Cabin Fever. It has a milky base with red shimmer, red iridescent glitter and black holo glitter. It can be worn alone (as my pictures show) or layered over another polish. I just love the red shimmer! I’m wearing two coats with a top coat of Seche Vite.
The other stunner from this duo is The Overlook. The Overlook is a bright, rich red-magenta linear holo with silver holo microglitter. This polish was a lot of fun to wear and I think it’s pretty work appropriate, too, even though it’s inspired by The Shining. This is two easy coats with a top coat of Seche.
Now, I kind of think Cabin Fever and The Overlook are made to go with each other, so here’s a couple of pics of Cabin Fever over The Overlook. An interesting combo indeed!
- Where to buy: Femme Fatale Cosmetics Australia and available soon at Femme Fatale Cosmetics international
- Cost: Cabin Fever AU$9 and The Overlook AU$11, both excluding GST
- Volume: 9ml
- Coats to opacity: See individual polish descriptions above
Even though these are a duo, you’ll notice you can buy these polishes individually, which is great news in case you like one and not the other, for example. Also, if you like the look of both but don’t have the budget this month, both polishes will be back in the Femme Fatale Cosmetics December presale. So, plenty of time to save. Thanks for reading!
