Another month means a new Colour Curator! Actually, I'm not sure what was up with last month, as I didn't get any info... Oh well, July is here and with it comes three Formula X shades curated by Urban Bush Babes. Sephora is seriously making me feel out of touch, as this is yet another blogger (or in this case bloggers- they're sisters) that I was unaware of. #getting old. Read on for a closer look at Everdream?, Beige From Our Book, and Seeing Double...

Everdream? Is a deep hunter green cream. It's simple, but a stunner, with a really easy going, non-streaky formula. Two coats.

Beige From Our Book is a beige-based nude with hidden shimmer. Now, you can see fine pink-gold shimmer flare in the bottle, but it just doesn't show up on the nail. A bummer because it looks really good in the bottle and I happen to love a shimmery nude.The formula is on the thicker side, but otherwise applies pretty well. Two coats.

Seeing Double is a green tinged, metallic gold. Yup, it's a little bit brush-srtokey (they look worse in photos than in person) but the shade is really incredible on nails. The shade has an inner glow, and a touch of shimmer that is all kinds on gorgeous. The first coat is quite thin and sheer, but it builds nicely on the second. Two coats.

Overall, some great shades! If I were purchasing, I'd be picking up Everdream? and Seeing Double. I give Beige From Our Book a pass, as the shimmer is just too weak and the shade isn't all that great otherwise. What do you think? Are you feeling any of these shades?
