Essie The New Neutrals Cashmere Matte Trio Swatches + Review


Last week I showed you Essie's Wrapped In Color Trio, and today I have the second half of the Cashmere Matte Collection for you - aka The New Neutrals. This trio is slightly more basic and staple shades-centric than the last; but, also like the Wrapped In Color Trio, brimming with beauty. Let's take a look!


Comfy In Cashmere is a Smoky Mauve-Meets Taupe with Blue/Green Micro-Iridescence. Introducing...the favorite. In the bottle I was semi-iffy on this shade; on the nail...total love. The blue/green micro-iridescence is so very visible here; and the overall texture is brilliantly silky and smooth. Despite the matte formula, Comfy In Cashmere was an absolute breeze to work with {another reason to love it!}This is 2 coats.


Wrap Me Up is an Eggshell White. Shades like this are a total weakness of mine. I adore how striking they look on the nail, while still remaining a neutral. The formula here was fairly easy to work with - it was a bit difficult to get it to level out; but, overall, no complaints. Definitely one of my favorite shades from this collection. This is 2 coats.


Spun In Luxe is a Black with Blue/Green Micro-Iridescence. I'm so bummed you guys. This was the number one shade I wanted from this collection, and it wound up being my least favorite. Maybe it's my skintone, or I got a wonky bottle; but I found that Spun In Luxe looked like a standard black matte on me - nary a streak of blue iridescence to be found {unless, perhaps, under a magnifying glass}. Formula-wise, however, it was flawless. This is 2 coats.


AVAILABILITY: Ulta for the full-size trio set {Sold Out}; Macy's, mass market merchandisers, drugstores, and department stores for individual bottles.

PRICE: $24.50 for the trio {Sold Out}; or buy individual bottles separately for $8.50 each.
