Alter Ego - Reformulated Shades - Swatches and Review

Press Sample/Review

Hi everyone! Today I have a swatch and review post for you with a couple of reformulated colours from Alter Ego Body Care Products. 

Cynthia has revamped her brand with a new formula (new base). I have previously reviewed her brand and I have to say that the new base is really nice and the formulas are much improved.

First up is my favourite of the two I was sent to review. Violet Grower is a bright pink jelly packed with purple shimmer and flakes. This is definitely a unique polish in my collection. I used 2 coats of Violet Grower and a coat of She Shines topcoat also by Alter Ego. I love a good pink polish and this one is unique in my collection!

Salmon Smoker is a shimmery coral with a touch of shimmer. The formula is good to work with although more on the sheer side. I used 3 coats here. Slightly brushstroke-y but not too much and the shimmer shows up nicely on the nail. I finished with a coat of topcoat.

These newly reformulated shades will soon be available to puchase. I don't own the original formula of Violet Grower but I do have the original of Salmon Smoker and I can definitely see the difference in the revamped formula and colour.
