LVX Summer Collection 2013 - Rive & Chambord

Happy Wednesday! We received the Summer 2013 Collection from LVX to review and I have my 2 picks to show you today.  Let's get right to the swatches.

Chambord: this groundbreaking raspberry exults energy and drama. This rich and deep fuchsia is extremely appealing because of its complex red undertones. Chambord is the perfect sultry shade for summer and grounds our palette for the season. Pair this affluent color with nude for an ultra chic look.  Let me address the formula on these polishes...FLAWLESS.  No other words.  Base, 2 easy, creamy, butter like coats and top coat.  I wore them each for 4 days with almost no visible wear.  Chambord will definitely be my fall go to neutral.  

Rive:  This soft and unique tan provides us with the perfect canvas for the brights of summer. Reminiscent of sandy shores and gorgeous coastlines, Rive is the perfect nude that will bridge your summer wardrobe together. Pair this wispy and delicate shade with poppy red for a refined look. I love a good nude polish and this one does not disappoint.  No streaky or bald spots.  I don't think the color was super flattering on my skin tone but it doesn't take away from how nice of a polish this is.  I gave it to Anna since she's a little darker than me.  

Anna and Robin will show you the rest of the Summer Collection soon so stay tuned!  What do you think of my 2 picks?  This was my first time with LVX and I am super impressed.

LVX retails for $16 per bottle and can be purchased here.  Like them on Facebook for news and specials!
