New-To-Me Indie - Down The Bayou Lacquer: Storms Rolling In & Girls Wear Camo Too!

Late in May I won a giveaway from a new-to-me indie company called Down The Bayou Lacquer!  I received 2 full size polishes and an awesome polish remover from Cinema Swatch Lacquers.  The remover is scented, called "Apple Candy" and smells amazing, works really well, too.

The polishes I received are Storms Rolling In and Girls Wear Camo Too.  Bottle shots!



First up, this is Storms Rolling In.  What a pretty grey!

I shook this polish like crazy but the glitters were kind of tough to fish out. There is a micro glitter/shimmer running through it, which is really eye catching.  The formula of the polish itself is nice, and the grey color is quite flattering.  This is three thin coats with topcoat.

Girls Wear Camo Too is a clear based glitter topper with (you guessed it) camo inspired colors. I love that she used shards and flakies here, it looks kind of tough, like camo! :) I layered it over Maybelline A Neutral Statement. The formula on this is nice, and the colors really perfect for the theme. If I could voice one complaint, I do wish there were more glitters. This is three coats, dabbed a bit, and topcoat.

Zoya Sophisticates

The Zoya Sophisticates collection is here! There are two "pearl" shades, two "metallic" shades, and 8 creme shades. Let me show you each one! I am going to lift the description from the site, LOL. #lazyblogger

But first, group shot:

Zoya McKenna: "refined pearl in a soft almond" is the description of this polish. It does have a "pearl" like finish to it, but it is very subtle. Watch those brush strokes though, they can show if you're not careful.

Zoya Tabitha: this is the other "pearl" polish but in a hunter green. I actually liked this shade more than I thought I would! The pearl finish makes it quite unique...but, oh boy, those brush strokes! Two coats shown here.

Zoya Gal: No doubt, this baby is named after Gal Gadot, aka Wonderwoman! I wish they had given her a more powerful color, because this one is lame-o. Zoya describes this as a "smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic." Ugly, LOL. My camera didn't like it and…

Lip Slut: F*ck Trump Liquid Lipstick!

Perhaps I will lose a few followers for this, but I am over it. Trump is an awful President. He does not care to unite the country, and, quite the opposite, seeks to divide people from their neighbors and loved ones.

In response to his ridiculous response to the Aug 11-12 events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lip Slut decided to send some of the proceeds from their now infamous F*ck Trump lipstick to those who suffered.

Honestly, this product has been for sales since November 2016. I didn't buy it then because I hoped (and prayed and hoped and prayed) that, if he were elected, Trump would be great...

So, lemme show ya my new lippie, k?

I wasn't expecting the formula to be great...BUT IT IS!

The color is quite universally flattering, I would think. The formula feels like a Colour Pop matte to me, and the staying powder is great. Win, win!


PS: Fuck Trump!
