Deborah Lippmann Painted Desert, Wild. Blazing. Boundless

I was thrilled to receive the Deborah Lippmann Painted Desert collection for Summer 2015 for review! Just a quick note, the PR company included Earth Angel instead of Terra Nova (the default 4th shade). They must have been out of stock, and I do believe Earth Angel is the typical 4th shade in some store locations. The formulas and shades in this collection did not disappoint and although it’s a summer release, these colors are very fall appropriate. Let’s take a look!

Deborah Lippmann Painted Desert Collection, Summer 2015, from Left: Desert Moon, full coverage pebble grey (crème); Shifting Sands, full coverage light khaki (crème); Earth Angel - full coverage dusty rose (shimmer); and Love In The Dunes, full coverage purple mauve (crème).  .5 Fl. Oz. 15 mL each. This particular set did not include Terra Nova but DL sent me Earth Angel, I think not a part of the original 4-piece collection, but included in the Sephora Painted Desert collection.

What it is:
A long-wearing, treatment-enriched nail polish in soothing, desert-inspired shades.

What it does:
Let nails stand out with the earthy, neutral tones of the Painted Desert Collection. Enriched with treatment benefits from biotin and green tea extract, these nail polishes are long-lasting, dry quickly, and coat on evenly and smoothly. The cream finish goes on smooth and glossy, saturating nails with rich color. Wear each shade alone, or layer them together for a whole new nail look.

“Get lost in a desert paradise with these new full coverage neutral shades: Shifting Sands, a light khaki previewed at Eva Fehren’s S/S 2015 NYFW presentation, T e r r a N o v a , a warm camel, previewed at Narciso Rodriguez’s S/S 2015 runway show, Desert Moon, a pebble gray and Love In The Dunes, a purple mauve.” 5 Free Formula. Contains no toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor or DBP (Dibutyl Phthalate). No animal testing.

First up is Desert Moon:

Desert Moon really reminded me of wet concrete in color. The smooth formula is very opaque and requires 1-2 coats. I used 2.

Shifting Sands is one of those essential nudes and the formula is superb:

Shifting sands is a slightly rosy nude, very creamy to apply. Requires 2 coats.

Earth Angel is amazing as well. That subtle copper shimmer makes it perfect:

Earth Angel is a subtle shimmer dusty rose, that copper shimmer is very fitting for the desert theme. It was the slightly more sheer formula of the set. Still only requiring 2 coats.

And my favorite shade (love them all but I didn’t want to take this one off), is Love In The Dunes:

Love In The Dunes was my favorite of the collection. 1-2 coats, and I only needed one!

Conclusion:

I was as impressed with these polishes as I knew I’d be. Every formula and finish a glossy winner.

Just had to have a bit of fun using all the shades in the collection. Since it was themed as Painted Desert, naturally I wanted to capture the painted shades of the Arizona desert terrain.
