I recently bought both the "Uptown" and "Downtown" sets from China Glaze's Fall 2011 Metro Collection online, since I couldn't take the chance of not being able to find them all in stores.
Burnt terracotta crème mirrors the quaint townhouses of the city
This is a very unique color, and totally reminds me of the terracotta pots of the southwest. This yellow based red/chocolate creme, is smooth and easy to apply. No complaints on formula for me, and although this may not be my favorite color from the collection, it is definitely one of the more unique colors from the collection.
The perfect deep, red crème to match any outfit.
I love this color, a blue based deep red, that almost reminds me of "new brick". This is an easy color to wear for "red fans" this fall. There is something very "adult" about this color. It's sophisticated, bright and wearable for fall, and I love it!!
Stop traffic with a breathtaking, raspberry pink crème
Pink creme is right! This was brighter than I expected for a fall color, but then again, there is nothing wrong with bright colors in the fall :). This is color has a juicy quality to it, and it isn't neon or bright enough to be mistaken for a summer color. This is definitely a perfect shade for girly "fall hands".
Exactly what you need for a night on the town – rich purple crème
Smooth purple creme. This isn't as light and springy as "Grape Pop" (comparison later), this is definitely more deep, yet it still isn't too deep to be mistaken for another black creme.
"CG In The City"
Glittering dusty purple, bronze and silver multi-tonal glitter, perfect for a pop of edge from West side to East side
Silver and soft lilac glitter in a clear base. Not as opaque as I'd like, but still a very nice and smooth glitter. This would look great on top of....
2 coats of "Urban-Night" topped with 1 coat of "CG In The City"
Great combo!, what can I say, these 2 were meant to be together!
So, what do I think of this collection. I love fall and I love fall colors! Although some of these colors closely mirror other collections (i.e. OPI) I still think there are enough differences to own both. :)
My favorites from this pack are "Street Chic", "Urban-Night" and "CG In The City".
Next up, the fan favorite, "Downtown"...
