China Glaze Fall 2015, The Great Outdoors

I ran into Ulta yesterday and saw a mini pack of China Glaze The Great Outdoors collection and I picked it up as an impulse buy.  I've been wanting to try the fall collection so what better way than a mini pack?  There are six in the mini pack but there are 12 in the full collection.


Change your Altitude: a light gray taupe cream.  Three coats no topcoat.

My Lodge or Yours?: a rosey brown cream.  Two coats no topcoat

Free Bear Hugs: a vampy purplish red.  Two coats no top coat. I love this one, but be careful with application because it is hard to clean up.

Sleeping Under the Stars: navy with an awesome pink shimmer.  One coat plus top coat.  This dried to a semi matte finish.  You can't see the shimmer in my swatch but it's there and it's fabulous.

Cabin Fever: a gold to pink duochrome.  The first coat was sheer but it was great after two coats.  I loved this one, too.

Wood you Wanna?: a dark brown leaning purple silver foil.  Two coats no top coat.  This one is stunning.

The formula and application of these are great.  I liked every one of these.  I especially love Sleeping under the Stars, Cabin Fever, and Wood you Wanna?


The China Glaze mini pack can be purchased at Beauty Brands, Sally Beauty, Ulta, and many other retailers.

What do you think about this collection?  Have you picked up any?

    1. The electric nights collection won me over with China Glaze and I'll probably get more of this collection!

    1. They didn't wear well on me until recently. I gave them another shot with the summer collection and they wore great on me. So now I'm a China Glaze fan!

  16. Backpacking outdoors is one of the greatest forms of adventure. Many people consider themselves to be veterans when it comes to this pursuit and love to get away whenever they get the opportunity. Check my source

  17. Since we have a limit on the amount of items and the weight we can carry, we have to be smart while choosing the gear. http://www.livingtheoutdoorslife.com
