LeChat Dare to Wear: Color Me Autumn, Fall 2018

Evening!  It was a fairly restful day for me.  I had a nice afternoon shopping around the Halloween aisles at Target.  I picked up a few decorations because all of my standards are packed away in a POD while we are re-doing the house.  Yes, literally right before the arrival of baby #4.  No, it won't be finished in time.  No, I have no idea how we are going to manage but we will.  Tonight, while the kids finish up homework and clean up I wanted to jump on and share a gorgeous and fun Fall collection with you.  This is the LeChat Color Me Autumn Collection.  It's currently available on their site and it's absolutely worth checking out!  I love their take on Autumn and LeChat has really been slaying with colors and formula lately.  These are a steal at $6.95 each!  Alrighty, let's check them out.

You know I usually go in rainbow order and if that's not an option I go lightest to darkest.  So I started out with Cashmere.  This is a perfect palette cleanser and a great shade to start off some nail art.  It's also great for multiple seasons!  It's officially described as a soft dusty rose.  Sure, I can get behind that description.  While I enjoyed the color, the formula was a bit finicky on this one.  I normally need 3 coats to cover my nail line but I needed 3 coats to level out the polish this time.  IT did have a nice glossy finish though.  3 coats, no topcoat.

Brown Sugar is a gorgeous mauve pink with brown undertones.  Great every day shade, and actually works perfectly for the Fall!  I have so many shirts in this shade at the moment, definitely a color for the season.  Great coverage and formula.  No problems to report.  I used 2 coats for full coverage and no topcoat.  

Here's Brushed Blush, a coral pink creme.  This is where the collection gets interesting for me!  I don't typically think of coral when I think Fall.  But you know what, it's a gorgeous color and I will totally rock it!  It's going to look fantastic with a brown/navy/cream shaded outfit!  Talk about the perfect pop of color.  Formula was a bit sheer on this one but it works itself out alright in 3 coats.  Just a bit of VNL left. No topcoat used.  

Harvest Moon is my favorite of the collection.  Are you really surprised?  This is a phenomenal burnt orange shade that somehow is uber vibrant!  It's a creme formula, maybe more crelly as it does apply fairly sheer.  My IRL eyes really see the VNL but it's not as noticeable as in the pictures.  I used 3 coats and no topcoat.  

Painted Maple is a very unusual shade!  I'd label it as a dusty red with pink undertones.  It's definitely unique as far as reds go so if you are a red lover you should totally snag this one.  All great things to say about the color, formula and application.  No problems here!  3 coats and no topcoat needed.  

And finally we have Bittersweet.  There is no doubt about it that this is a classic Autumn shade.  It's a deep burgundy creme that exudes vampyness.  I will absolutely be wearing this one again, as well as the others in this collection.  Formula and application were both great, no issues to report.  3 coats and no topcoat.  

I did a little art with some of the shades in the Color Me Autumn collection.  I started with a base of Cashmere.  Then using the saran wrap method I dabbed on Brown Sugar and Bittersweet until I was happy with the look.  I used some topcoat to gloss it all up and that was a simple and beautiful mani!
