Today I have guest review from the gorgeous Imo who writes the It's a London Thing blog www.imz-itsalondonthing.blogspot.co.uk. I was sent all four of the HIPP x RGB nail foundation shades, and asked Imo to guest review the darker shades for me.
To spoil this review at the outset, I will say that the colours I tried in this collection do not match up to my current nude faves. The formula is lovely and in one coat you get fantastic coverage, the drying time is short and the shine supreme, but like drugstore foundations the colour range has two platforms, light or dark. I’m neither of these.
I have colours F3 and F4.
F3 is a caramel brown with NO shimmer. This has a jelly finish with absolutely no top coat, I liked the glassy effect so didn’t bother applying one. F4 is a dark brown with a similar glassy finish. This would be a great nude shade for dark skin ladies (MAC NW45) and a pretty winter shade for lighter complexions.
If you have short nails nude polishes will elongate your fingers and for longer nails the effect is more ET/ Doctor Who oud which I’m not averse to.
For my skin tone, F2 may be a suitable match but for now I’ll stick to OPI and MAC. I absolutely love the idea of nail foundation but a variety of shades need to be developed to cater for all different skin tones.
Overall, Im really pleased with the quality of the polishes and Im now really excited to try more RGB varnishes, as I think I’ve found my favourite nail lacquer formula.
RGB cosmetics are available here and here.
Thanks again Imo for the review. Product is PR sample.
