Barielle Jetsetter Collection

Sample provided for review

Last month, I shared the Barielle Me Couture collection for Fall 2014; today I've got their other fall collection, Jetsetter. There are six shades here:
Autumn Seoul, Kiss Me Kate, Irish Eyes, Gondola Ride, Rain in Spain, and Midnight in Paris.

I reached first for the cool shades. Midnight in Paris is a deep blue with very subtle shimmer; in the bottle it looked more purple-leaning but on the nail it was definitely blue. It was almost opaque in one coat; I used two for my swatch for added depth. For the accent nail, I used two coats of Rain in Spain, which is a blue-leaning lilac creme.

I paired the two neutral shades in a similar manner. Most nails got two coats of Autumn in Seoul, a warm brown shimmer, while the accent nail is two coats of Kiss Me Kate, a light dusty peach creme that nearly matches my skin.

The remaining two shades are both yellow-leaning green cremes. My index and middle fingers (top in photo below) got two coats of Gondola Ride, a medium dusty green. My ring and pinky have three coats of Irish Eyes, which is darker and less dusty than Gondola Ride; it would have been two except I messed up and bumped a nail when it was wet and needed to fix that.

I gussied up the greens with dots of Autumn in Seoul and Kiss Me Kate (then messed up the dots somewhat by putting topcoat on too soon).

Somehow the slightly smeared dots looked better with a matte topcoat:

I did one more quick dotticure with a base of Kiss Me Kate and dots in gradated sizes in Irish Eyes, Midnight in Paris, and Autumn in Seoul, topped with matte topcoat.

Barielle's cremes are always solid, and these are no exceptions. I wouldn't have put two greens so close to each other in the same collection since I crave variety, but they're fine shades taken individually. I'm more into flecked shimmers than the hidden or pearly ones like the two in this collection, though they are both wearable.

This collection is available on the Barielle website for $8 each. You can also find all the links to their social media there.

  1. I really like the first two - wow :-)

  2. Oh wow! Love all of these colors and they work so well together! ^_^

  3. These colors are right up your alley Karen - and they suit you!
    Unfortunately dusty and grey-toned don't go well with me :D

  4. Such a pity that Gondola Ride is not a kind of colour I'd wear, I love the name :D Kiss me Kate looks really nice, even if I'm not into nudes!

  5. These look nice! I especially love the neutral colours Autumn Seoul and Kiss Me Kate :)
