Hello Everyone! Let me start out today with a little corny joke:
Q. Whats a bear called without teeth.?
A. A gummy bear! Hahahaha
Did you laugh? Anyway today is Thursday and its day 3 of my reviews of Mattese Elite. Im starting to really love this brand! For those who haven't read my last two posts Ricky's is: "An edgy, ultra-hip "beauty shop" specializing in unique fashion accessories, cosmetics, and beauty supplies, Ricky's NYC has been a part of New York's urban chic culture for nearly two decades. From style-conscious teenagers and their suburbanite moms to Hollywood celebrities and their professional stylists, Ricky's NYC plays host to a diverse, cult-like following of clientele." You can only buy Mattese Elite at Rickys.
The latest Mattese Elite collection was inspired by Ballerinas. I have already reviewed Attitude and Developpe. Today I am going to swatch Releve for you!
Releve is a muddy brown that reminds me of Paradoxal or Perplex without the purple shine. Its actually really nice and for this polish all I needed was one thick coat or two semi thick coats.
This was also a hard color to capture but once again the Ricky's website has the accurate shade but in real life its a tad darker:
I tried very hard to get a good color shot and think I did fairly well. I like this color a lot and think its more unique than your every day shade.
