Well I made the mistake of searching swatch photos for shades from the new Pure Color Metal Mania Nail Lacquer collection and then somehow wound up buying four of them! Oops.
Now let me say that it's a bit confusing which shade belongs to either the Beyond Black or Metal Mania collections....
I do like these glosses and don't regret purchasing them, but I wish they were less expensive and had more color bang for my buck!
Availability:Bobbi Brown or Sephora. Both of these colors are available online only.
Pricing: $23.00 for .24 oz.

I took a darker photo so you could see how glossy it is and the cool flakies better. Love!
I am definitely intrigued enough to want to check out a few of their other colors in this line. You can wear these over a lipstick also if you want more of a color impact,...
Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gloss Reflex Dazzling Violet
Reflex Dazzling Violet is a gorgeous violet shade that contains micro shimmery bits that reflect purple, blue and pink.
The gloss itself isn't super opaque, it is definitely on the sheer side, BUT it feels amazing!

Overall: I really love this kit! The Eye Shadow Duo was amazing and I really love the glosses. I don't mind the staining that much since I like the shades and glossiness...
They seem to have a fondness for these plastic paddle-shaped applicators over at Anastasia Beverly Hills. I am not a fan. As with their HydraFull Glosses, I don't find this works well at all in actually applying the product.
What I do instead is take a bit off it...
The glosses come in a plastic tube with a slanted applicator. Easy-as-pie.
The infamous Box 'o Powder Blushes. Please ignore the semi un-blended eyeshadow in pics below, I just slapped it on to review it.

Not sold on this one sadly!
Undercover Red Lip Gloss claims that it self-adjusts into your very own shade of red that suits you best. On me it did pretty much nothing. It looked exactly on my lips like it does in the swatch photo above. Just a very sheer pink/clear gloss.

Very vivid and nicely pigmented even without primer (no primer in swatch photo)
Saunter is a very pale nude/peach lip liner. A bit too nude for me...Very 60′s. Reminds me of their old lipstick I wore all the time back in the day – Shrimpton.
Handforged is a metallic gold liner with...
