Serum No. 5 FW13 Part 1: Duo and Holo

Disclosure

Serum has a new Fall/Winter (FW) collection and all the colors are gorgeous.  Today, I'll post part one, and later I will post part two and the other goodies.  Acai of Relief is a blue to purple duochrome, it was somewhat shimmery, I wish it had more shimmer, like the ones from the past FW collection.  I catched the purple shift, but the picture came out a bit blurry, I decided to leave it because it was the most color accurate.  The other three, A Cup of Teal, Jaded and Mavelous are all consistent in formula and finish.  They are scattered two-coater holographics.  The pictures show them without topcoat, but I've used them before with Sally Hansen Diamond Flash Topcoat and they did just fine, no dulling of the 'holo effect'.  In fact, I recommend to wear them with topcoat since they are somewhat matte.  They reminded me of the Brazillian brand Rivka.  Important note: they don't need a special aqua basecoat, the dragging was very minimal.  These can be bought in a set, which includes all 4 in very generous "mini" sizes.
