Cirque Colors - The Metropolis Collection: January Swatches & Review

Press Sample

Hello, all! I've got swatches of two strikingly vampy shades by Cirque Colors to share today! Both of these polishes are from the latest installment of the Metropolis collection...

"An ode to the city that never sleeps; the center of the universe; the metropolis. We are excited to introduce a range of creme-finished lacquers to our core lineup through a monthly release series". 

I have absolutely loved the beautiful cremes that they've previously released for this collection, and I'm just as excited for the next few installments. 

Empire State of Mind is a deep oxblood vampy red that reads almost brown in some light, and deep maroon in others. The formula was amazing, though you will need 2 careful coats as the first coat does leave some patching. This shades is on the jelly spectrum of cremes and was expecting to have to use more than 2 coats to avoid patches, but this was a breeze to use. Love it! 

Midnight Cowboy is vibrant navy blue creme that also leans towards a jelly. Again, the first coat didn't provide coverage, but the second filled everything out nicely. I actually used 3 coats for these photos because I was worried about patches showing in the photos, but I think you could easily get away with 2 coats. I know this might not be the most unique shade out there, but you can't beat the phenomenal formula, and if you're a blue lover like me, you definitely need this in your collection ;) 

Overall, totally smitten with these two shades. They're great for these colder months that we're in, but since I enjoy wearing darker shades year round, I know these will be in my rotation. 

You can grab these and tons of other shades directly from the Cirque Colors website and be sure to check out the other stunning shades of the Metropolis collection here. Be sure to follow Cirque on your favorite social media site to stay up to date with the latest releases and promotions!
