Today I've got 4 shades from the Mavala Garden Party collection for Spring/Summer 2015 to share with you, a collection of sweet and girly soft shades inspired by the floral trends of the SS '15 catwalks. I've actually never tried Mavala until now, I was surprised to learn how many shades they have!
I must admit mini bottles are not usually my thing (I know a lot of people, especially bloggers, feel the same) but the Mavala bottles have a certain cuteness factor. I like the shape and the lids, and they're just about big enough for me to hold for swatch photos!
Jasmin is a soft powdery pink creme with hidden shimmer, almost a nude but not quite. I liked this much more than I expected to! It's a little sheer but built up easily in 3 coats. My skin tone went a bit weird in this picture, please ignore ;)
Petunia is a brighter medium pink creme, also with hidden shimmer. The formula is nice and smooth, I used 2 coats plus top coat
Hortensia is a rose pink creme. The formula for this one wasn't quite as good as the others, a little streaky but evened out in 3 coats.
Iris is a soft lilac creme with a perfect 2 coat formula. You will never find me bored of lilacs! ;)
I have to include a picture of the ridiculously cheerful display stand because it's one of the nicest I've seen, I love it! (pic from Mavala)
While not crazily exciting, I appreciate the perfect palette of soft spring shades that will take you through to summer (what Summer!?) what do you think, are you over Spring shades or are these your thing?
