Review: Project Runway Colors Take Flight Collection by L'Oreal

My local Walgreens FINALLY got the Project Runway Colors Take Flight Collection by L'Oreal! (about a month after it's release lol). I know that Ulta made this collection available online a while back, but I decided to pass on that and just wait for it to pop up at my local drugstores.

For those of you who watch Project Runway, I'm sure you are familiar with Collier Strong, who has been featured on the show many times, and is a L'Oreal celebrity makeup artists.  This collection, desingned by Collier, was inspired by Birds and feature names such as, Charming Cockatoo, Watchful Owl, Audacious Amazon, and Sultry Raven.

I decided to pick up the Charming Cockatoo Blush, Owl's Night Nail Polish, and Sultry Raven's Pout Lipstick.

The Owl's Night Nail Polish is Gorgeous! I absolutely LOVE the color, and it's nothing like anything I have in my nail polish collection. I would describe the color as having a forest green base with gold shimmers! The formula is also really nice. It goes on thin and has a small brush which helps with precision, and it also drys fairly quick. I achieved this look with 2 medium coats.

I also like the Sultry Raven's Pout Lipstick. This lipstick is a really nice Nude/Pink color which compliments a Smokey Eye perfectly! I do like this lipstick, but I wouldn't say it's a Must-Have. For those of you with light skin tones who are looking for a nude shade, this color would be perfect for you. On my skin tone this color is just a really pretty light pink shade. This color goes on Matte, and is not moisturizing at all, so I always apply lip balm underneath to prevent my lips from looking dry and chapped.

I also picked up a blush in the color Charming Cockatoo. I definitely thought it looked a lot darker in the package than it did on my skin. I don't like this color for my skin tone at all. I also felt like it went on chalky which made it difficult to blend. The color is REALLY light, but I'm sure those of you with lighter skin tones could pull it off.  I'll probably be returning this one.
