Those items are the Tres Chic Collection for spring 2012 that I purchased about a month ago in Malaysia (I am not sure about the availability elsewhere).
The collection includes 5 nail polishes: Cabana (peachy coral), Oh La La (milky pale pink), Flamingo (bright pink), Sizzle(red with coral undertones), and Luscious (deeper pink with purply tones). The other half of the collection includes 5 gel lip colours: Clementine (mid-tone orange), Poppy (bright pinkish red), Dollface (sheer pink), Orchid (raspberry pink) and Rosette (pinkish red but sheerer than Poppy).
I purchased 3 nail polishes in Cabana, Oh La La and Flamingo and 1 gel lip colour in Clementine.
CABANA NAIL POLISH
OH LA LA NAIL POLISH
FLAMINGO NAIL POLISH
*I took the photos next to a window without flash. The colour in real life probably reads a little darker than in photos.
I meant to review these earlier but my nails were just too brittle and weak that I didn't want to paint them. I applied OPI nail envy and cuticle oil consistently for about a month and my nails are kinda getting better so I decided to paint them for the review.
My favourite out of the 3 I bought is Cabana because I adore the colour. I personally am not normally a fan of nail polishes that are too bright but I thought Flamingo looks so pretty in the tube and I did like the way it looks on the nails as well. I love the formula of these 2 because these colours were solidly opaque 2 coats (can probably get away with one thicker coat too). Oh La La is a miss for me because the colour is just not on par with the other 2 polishes that I got. I applied 2 coats and the payoff is still sheer but I tried applying 3 coats on one nail and it got a little gloopy and little bubbles started to form.
That being said, these polishes wear very well on the nails. Slight tip wear only started to show on day 7 and it only chipped when I spent an entire day working in the kitchen (for mother's day!!).
CLEMENTINE GEL LIP COLOUR
Of course I really like the Clementine gel lip colour because it is a very pretty mid-tone orange colour. This product can be applied sheerly but it builds up well for more colour to show through. It is glossy upon application but then it fades around on hour or so later but it does leave a stain-like effect behind, which is always a plus because it means you can reapply less often.
I don't really like the smell of these because I think these are meant to smell like caramel/some sort of candy but somehow it smells like play dough to me.
CUSTOM ARTIST PORTFOLIO
The custom artist portfolio is a makeup case that I fell in love with the moment I laid eyes on it and I ended up calling up the stores over and over so that I can go get one the moment it comes out (the sales associate was unpacking these from boxes when I went into the store).
Are you excited to see what it looks like??
The metallic finish faux crocodile skin design reminds me of the packaging for the holiday 2011 palettes.
Side view: it is about 3 inches thick.
I LOVE THIS MAKEUP CASE. I think it is one of the prettiest makeup case that I have ever seen~~~~~
This is it from me so far.
