*These products are Cruelty Free 

Tonight I have the Limited Edition Colors by Llarowe Ode to Bruno Collection to show you. These will be launching February 14, 2015 as a pre-order from 12 noon to 8 pm (MST)! Catch me after the jump for my swatches and review.

Colors by Llarowe
Ode to Bruno Collection

Yes, Bruno Mars! You guys know I'm more of a Perry Como Dean Martin kinda gal myself but even I love Bruno Mars!

There are 4 polishes in the Ode to Bruno Collection: a glitter bomb, two holos and a multi-chrome. Limited Edition, pre-order.


Uptown Funk You Up - this one is a cool-toned magenta pink with a strong linear and violet holo arc. Creamy smooth formula, no issues to report. I used 2 coats with no top coat for the photos.



Mark Needs Love Too - this one is really a blue-grey that reads blue because of the strong blue holo linear arc. No issues with this one either. You will need a top coat for a smooth finish because it has micro-glitters too. Two coats with one coat of top coat for the photos.

Shade. You can see the grey come out to play more here - and the gold shimmer and micro-glitter.


Hooligans - this one is a multi-chrome that shifts from wine to green to brown, copper and gold. It also has silver micro-glitter that settle to the surface, so you will need a top coat for a smooth feel with this one as well. Two coats with one coat of top coat for most photos. I forgot the top coat for a few photos - the artificial lighting photos are without top coat and the shade photos are with top coat. As you can see, the top coat smooths it out nicely.



Having Bruno's Babies - this one is a full-coverage glitter bomb in 3 coats or you can use it in one coat over another polish. The base is mostly clear - ever-so-slightly purple tinted maybe and the glitters are holo and the pink and blue micro-glitters that trick the eye to seeing purple. No issues at all except that when you wear it alone, you might have what I call BTS (balding tip syndrome) where the thicker base pulls away from the tips. It wasn't bad on this one, but I don't mind it myself. If you do, layer it over a base color. Three coats with one coat of top coat for the photos. It's a full-on glitter-tastic glitter bomb and I'm sorry I didn't have any sun to blind you with!



What do you think? This names are awesome! My favorite, of course, is Uptown Funk You Up. Yours?
