Shades by Barielle Review

Posted in Barielle, Brown, Gray, Purple, Shimmer on December 7, 2009 by ainamakeup

I took advantage of the great deals on last week.  I’ve been lemmining a few shades from the All Lacquered Up Collection for a while now and with their 20% off and buy one/get one deal last week, I got a good Haul!  Here are some swatches and a review!


This picture doesn’t doOut-Grey-Geous justice.  There are little flecks of gold in that silver shimmer polish that I just love.  The formula on this was good consistency wise, but I did notice tipwear the same day I applied the polish and I wore it all day.

Misbehaving Mistress

I really love this shade.  Misbehaving Mistress is a vampy brown shade with silver shimmer.  I love the mix of a cool toned brown with silver.  The polish itself had a nice consistency.  This is three coats and no top coat.

Coco Bar

Brown Nail Polishes are my absolute favorite and Coco Bar fits my bill perfectly!  Clasic chocolate brown shade that’s not red. This one is my go-to brown nail polish.  My faorite thing is that it’s brown and not vampy or black.


Putt-E-On-Me is a light grayed out lilac creme.  I really like it.  I expected this to be more grey then purple but I really like it! this went on a little thick but not too bad.


Grey nail Polish is another big love of mind and I really like this one.  it’s got some blue in it.  I was afraid Putt-e-on-me and U-Concrete-me were going to be similar, but they really aren’t. This one also went on a little thick but still had good application.  This is also three coats.

Make it a Latte

This is a pretty medium brown shade with subtle gold shimmer.  Excelent formula on this.  This is also three coats and no top coat.

Hidden Hideaway

I think this one is my favorite of the ones i bought.  This vampy deep purple shimmer is so glossy and shiny.  The formula on this was also really great!

To sum up, the cremes applied a bit thicker than the shimmers.  I really liked all of the colors.  Shades by Barille can be found at Ricky’s in NYC but I haven’t seen any of the new colors as of yet.  I got all of mine on Barielle’s Website.  Currently they are running an up to 30% sale depending on how much you spend  You can get up to 30% off on orders over $100 and free shipping!  Happy Shopping!
