LOVE EXPRESSIONS BY SWEET TOUCH ENGLAND [SWATCHES+REVIEW]


I'm writing today, about 'Love Expressions', a pack of five nail colors by Sweet Touch England, yes, you heard that right! Sweet Touch England has come up with a limited edition nail colors pack launching just in time for this Valentines Day. The colors included in the pack are all as the name suggests; shades of love, a spectrum of pinks, corals and reds. What's always expected from Sweet Touch is good quality, affordable products, especially the nail polishes are one of their star products. Let's find out how this kit turned out!

My Thoughts:
Housed in a pink girly packaging are as Sweet Touch puts it, five 'shades of love'; full-sized nail polishes with different finishes. The colors are aptly named, really pretty shades of reds, pink and corals.  

Hot Red:  described as "Red roses to make the heart flutter" is a bright glossy red, requires two coats to go completely opaque. 
Bright Coral:  described as "powered up pastel pink with an emphatic hint of coral" is the brightest shade of the bunch, in my opinion it's a true coral shade leaning more towards neon orange, and is completely opaque in a single coat.
Barbie Pink: described as "Pink so cute you won't be able to resist" is a sheer bright pink with a frosty finish. The application does get a bit messy with this as can be seen in the nail swatch above; it's probably because of the finish, either that or it's too runny, the trick is to pick up less on the brush and go for more coats gradually to build up color. This is my least favorite of the pack.
Indian Red: described as "Sharp red that would brighten up your day" is more of a lovely bright coral shade with more pink, sort of like a water melon-y pink-ish red. Like bright coral, this too is completely opaque in a single coat. This might be my favorite among all of these shades both shade and finish wise.
Red Wine:  described as "A touch of premium arousing velvet" is the most sultry color of the bunch, a sheer maroon color exactly like red wine, requires subsequent coats to go opaque, formula resembles that of Barbie Pink but is just slightly less runny, though once it sets the result is an astounding berry shade, my second favorite in this pack.

I think the pack has a nice selection of colors depicting the Valentines day theme, it has all the basic shades which are universal and never go out of trend. It has something in it for everyone, those who prefer intense colors to those who'd like to keep it sheer. So I'd suggest you get yours before the stock ends, it's highly recommended!

Price and Availability:
This pack is priced at PKR670 and is available at all Makeup City outlets and at leading stores of Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad.

Overall it's a lovely collection of such pretty shades to own, being limited edition I'd advise you to get your pack asap!:)
