Lex Cosmetics Seashell

Good Morning guys! Happy Saturday woohoo! My Planet Beauty giveaway is now closed, thank you all for entering...the winner will be announced later today, I'm still validating entries!

Today I have for you guys Lex Cosmetics Seashell. This is one of the 3 new shades they just added to their website. If you don't know about Lex Cosmetics they are a very cool company, you can go onto their website and submit your color ideas, then they go up for vote and the winning color gets made. Seashell was actually one that I voted for so as soon as it went up for sale I bought a bottle! Seashell was created by Sarah, she wanted a color to mimic the inside of a seashell, a kind of oil spill color. To me, I thought we would get a multichrome polish to embody that.

So how did it turn out? No multichrome...but instead a subtle holo! To me, that might be even better! When I got this out of the package I was like uhhh because I was inside and it looked like a shimmery grey.  I put a coat on over the polish I already had on and went outside to see if something just wasn't translating and pow holo! It's definitely not the strongest holo ever but it is more apparent in real life than in my photos...subtle holo is a hard thing to capture! If you like Color Club Revvvolution you will like this! For the photos below I used 2 coats of Seashell over the polish I already had on (Deborah Lippmann Billionaire)

The first photo is inside and with flash, all the other photos are outside in the sun.






Lex Cosmetics polish can be purchased on their official website: www.LexCosmetics.com. Each polish retails for $10 each. $1 from each bottle of polish bought goes to charity, for Seashell the money is donated to fight sexual assault!

  1. WOW! This is not what I was expecting - I figured it was going to have more of a pink tone, but I love it!

    Thanks for sharing it! I'm going to have to buy it now.

  2. Wow, just wow! I can't believe it is a HOLO! Even a subtle one is like wow!

    I'll admit, it's definitely different than what I imagined it to be, but I still really love it!

    Your swatches are awesome! May I please post some on my tumblr with credit back to you? Just cause this is MY creation and I wanna show the world every swatch I see! :)

  6. Really lovely! I honestly haven't seen anything like it! It'd be awesome if they could donate some of the proceeds to marine life or something like that because it is truly a perfect oil spill color!

    Hi Stephanie!

    I actually chose what organization I wanted it to go to. A lot of her colors already go towards animal orgs and I wanted it to go towards something I'm really passionate about. I'm a huge rape/sexual assault activist and the California Coalition Against Sexual Assault is all for fighting sexual assault :)

    Just wanted to give you some background on why I chose it! :)

  16. This is beautiful! I think once I have a little extra money I will have to get it, especially because I think the cause that the $1 goes to is SO important.
