Deborah Lippmann just released a quartet of new shades (well technically two for spring/resort and two for summer, but they released concurrently on her website, and I thought we could look at them all together).
Mermaid’s Dream has gotten the lion’s share of attention from print and digital press, but now that I’ve seen them all, I think the other three have gotten short shrift. I don’t know which is my favorite.
Mermaid’s Dream is a somewhat gritty shimmer/foil celadon with medium-sized blue glitter and tiny gold sparkles. On the Beach is a Saint Tropez–blue creme. Ray of Light is a sheer, dark, blue-purple jelly with orange/dull copper rainbow flakies (YUM). Sweet Dreams is a sheer jelly candy pink with red-pink-orange flakies. I love recognizing the song a Lippmann polish is named after.
I believe Ray of Light and Sweet Dreams are limited edition.
Here’s On the Beach on my toes:
Interesting pricing note: Lippmann cremes are $16; glitters (or polishes that are “special” in some other way) are $18. I have such a strong preference for cremes that I’d never noticed the price difference.
