OPI – A Butterfly Moment

January 18, 2013

Mariah Carey and OPI have partnered to release some beautiful shades this month. As soon as I spotted A Butterfly Moment on DSK Steph, I knew I had to have it. I literally ran to my local Ulta and was ecstatic to find all shades available. A Butterfly Moment is a frosted nude-pink shimmer. On me it’s fairly nude in the sense that it’s close to my natural skintone. I found it a bit too neutral for me – although I suspect it would look a lot prettier on either paler or darker skintones. Still it’s a good work-friendly neutral and the pearly pink shade is just so pretty in the bottle. I found the formula to be a little on the thick side – I recommend you let your first coat dry completely before applying a second. Two coats were definitely needed for smooth even coverage.

Swatches – depending on the light you can see some of the golden glow:

A few comparisons to Chanel Perle Rosee (discontinued), Chanel Rose Cache, Chanel Rose de Vents (discontinued) and OPI Gouda Gouda Two Shoes:

Did you pick up any of the OPI Mariah Carey shades? I already can’t wait for the Oz collection to be released in stores 🙂
