Aloha all you wahines! Howzit? I have to admit, I am in love with 99 percent of this collection sent to me for review from Loxa Beauty! So much that I was a bit concerned about how these sun-drenched shades would look on my winter pale skin, that I actually applied bronzer on my fingers for the photos. How’s that for dedication?! No worries “brah”, it’s all da kine good when you’re on the island. And I REALLY want to get back to Maui. We were there for nine wonderful days in ’02 and all 500+ photos I took…all gone! Sadly, my laptop totally died a painful death upon reentry to the mainland and I didn’t back up my pics. Yeah, dat was lolo (stupid), I know. So I HAVE to go back right?!
Okay, I won’t torture you any further with my feeble attempt at the “pidgeon” slang. My kids would say, “lame Mom, lame.” LOL the collection consists of 12 island inspired shades. Cremes, shimmers and a lonely little metallic yellow glitter mix. Let’s take a look!
Get yourself a Mai Tai and pull up a beach towel. There are a lot of photos here! First up is Do You Take Lei Away?
Here we have Is Mai Tai Crooked?
One of my faves, gorgeous Aloha From OPI.
In the same color family is Go With The Lava Flow.
And mauve shimmer in Just Lanai-ing Around.
Blushing beauty is Suzi Shops & Island Hops.
Here is a simple mani using some of the above shades.
In case you have seen That’s Hul-Arious! in the bottle and wondered, I did a comparison for you against Gargantuan Green Grape (not a part of this collection, but I already had it and just knew I had to throw this one at ya!)
And here is That’s Hul-Arious on the nails.
Another pretty green in the collection, My Gecko Does Tricks.
A beautiful Pacific blue shimmer in This Color’s Making Waves.
Almost there! I know, longer than a 14-hour flight to the island chain. Here is Hello, Hawaii Ya?
A gorgeous, absolutely stunning purple creme, Lost My Bikini in Molokini.
And last, my least favorite, but nice attempt, Pineapples Have Peelings Too.
That’s all 12! Have you already picked up any of these, or the whole collection? You can order them all at *** Loxa Beauty today!
Believe me, I wanted so badly to have a little tan before swatching these, so I had to fake it with bronzer. Oh well, the life of a beauty blogger! 😉
