Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Fireberry Red - Fall 2010

You know until very recently, I never paid much attention to Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear. I want to blame it on the bottle, but I think it just had to do with availability... meaning that it's always available. So with endless LEs, new collections, etc Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear was low on my priority list.

That was until I met Purple Pizazz. It's funny that it took a LE to grab my attention on the Xtreme Wear line. Shortly after trying Purple Pizazz, I thought to myself, "Hey these have amazing wear, nice pigmentation and are $2.99!" There was really nothing to not like.

Below is the display for the Fall Collection of Xtreme Wear. This collection consists of 8 gorgeous colors, 4 of which I picked up. The first one I will be posting is Fireberry Red. Fireberry Red is a gorgeous crimson shade with ruby and golden duochrome. It's jelly-ish and rich. I almost didn't get this one initially. To add to reasons why I may have looked past Xtreme Wear previously is that you can't get a good sense of the color from the bottle. The bottle is narrow and doesn't offer much "free" space (area where the label isn't visible). I'm really glad I did pick this up. It's a stunning, rich red that I'm going to have fun wearing this fall.

The display. This collection also contains Purple Gala and the ever so mystical Mystic Lilac.
I picked those up as well and will be swatching them soon.

Index, Middle - 4 coats; Ring, Pinkie - 3 coats
I think 4 is the better application. Just gives the color more depth.

I have been wearing this color for 4 days. Just barely getting tippage now.
