Alessandro “The It Girl” Skittle Swatches

I was all squee when I stopped by the store yesterday and discovered that they had Alessandro’s new LE spring collection — The It Girl. This is a collection of ten beautiful pastels and neutrals with some surprises in the traditional Alessandro mini-bottle.

I love those square stocky bottles; I have an army.

The It Girl is quite difficult to find information about online, this promo pic is the best I could do.

I must admit, I saw the promos a while back and I wasn’t all that interested. However, seeing them live changed my mind as per usual. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The colours really are a refreshing change for the vampy winter shades of recent.

Seven of the ten are cremes. The exceptions are Lollipop and Dancing Queen which contain sort of “hidden” shimmer a la Essie Sew Psyched, etc. The one truly different polish from the rest of the collection is Catwalk. This is a sheer white glassfleck shimmer. Similar to China Glaze’s White Cap, minus the gold. Actually, I’m pretty certain this is an exact dupe for GOSH’s Vanilla Ice. Which is why I didn’t pick it up. I think it’s probably meant as an “effect” top coat for the cremes.

When I got home, there was literally about five minutes of natural light left so these skittles are extremely rushed and applied over my previous mani. ๐Ÿ˜› My bad.

On Tour, Dancing Queen, Pretty Ballerina, Milk Shake

I love them! the formula is great and they’re super glossy. On Tour is my favourite. It walks the fine line between lilac and blue and pastel and bright.

Dancing Queen I had to have for the name alone. *sings* Actually, this is pretty awesome too. A terribly trendy purple-taupe but with shimmer! Yup. Pretty awesome.

What can I say about Pretty Ballerina and Milkshake? A girly baby pink and a light pastel pink creme. Spring must be on my mind to have picked those up.

  1. Did you get these from Kaubamaja? Or I.L.U.? (please say the latter, haha)
    Oh well. I’m in need of new clean-looking creme colours, I guess this collection would be perfect for that!

      • I wasn’t very keen at first, but then the colors grew on me and now I absolutely love this collection! The colors are so light and fresh, perfect for spring. Can’t even decide, which ones I like best.

        I was also very disappointed to discover that half of the shades were already gone from Kaubamaja and they couldn’t tell whether or when they’ll restock. So I was told this morning.

  2. Loved Dancing Queen before I saw the name of it! After I saw the name – like it even more! I agree just thinking abt the name puts a smile on my face!! Just a wee bit jealous that Alessandro is not available here : (
