Femme Fatale Swatches and Reviews

Press sample
Hi there! I've got swatches of Femme Fatale today! This was my first experience with the brand. 
"Established in 2011 Femme Fatale is the leading Australian online boutique for handmade cosmetics & lacquer, plus additional beauty care items produced by small-scale businesses. We stock over 40 unique & vibrant artisan brands from around the world, with new products arriving each week"
I was sure looking forward to this brand!
The first is a trio created for Valentine's 2015 but of course can be worn all year!
Femme-Fatale-Fool's-Paradise
 Femme Fatale Fool's Paradise - bronz-y gold shimmer and flakes with silver holo glitter. I layered one coat over KBShimmer Eyes White Open.

 
Femme-Fatale-Rich-In-Beauty
 Femme Fatale Rich In Beauty - light gold and silver glitters with pink shimmer. One coat over KBShimmer Eyes White Open. I'm wishing I layered it over something else that shows off the pink shimmer better in photos. Love this one!
Femme-Fatale-Star-Crossed-lovers
Femme Fatale Star-Crossed Loverspurple jelly base with shimmer and multicolored mini glitters. I used 2 coats but still had a patchy spot here and there, so 3 would be best. Formula was on the thick side. 
Femme-Fatale-All-Sanity-Is-Lost
 Femme Fatale All Sanity Is Lost - a teal jelly base with holo glitter and shards, pink shimmer as well. Three coats here. I'm not a big fan of shards but I do like how they look in a jelly base!
femme-fatale-alone-in-the-darkness
Femme Fatale Alone In The Darkness - a teal/blue jelly base with beautiful micro glitters and subtle shimmer. Three coats.
Femme-Fatale-Stand-in-the-clouds
Femme Fatale Stand In The Clouds - aqua jelly base with multisized glitters with gold shimmer. Love love this one! I used 3 coats and you can see there is still slight visible nail showing through under the strong lights but not in person.
Femme-Fatale-in-his-house-he-waits-dreaming
Femme Fatale In His House He Waits Dreaming - scattered glitters in a brown jelly base with strong teal shimmer. I was not expecting the brown base as you can't really see it from the bottle. Definitely like it! Three coats.
Femme-Fatale-Brain-link
Femme Fatale Brain Link - scattered micro glitters in a magenta jelly base with subtle pink shimmer. Two coats was almost enough but I did three here just to be sure.
femme-fatale-touch-of-madness
Femme Fatale Touch of Madness - scattered micro glitters in a dark purple/magenta base. Three coats here.
femme-fatale-under-the-waters
Femme Fatale Under the Waters - purplish blue jelly base with strong turquoise shimmer. Two coats.

All swatches are with KBShimmer Basic Training base coat and Clearly On Top top coat. I found that these had a slightly thick formula and benefited from top coat as they dried dull or somewhat gritty.
Which ones are you liking? My fave is Stand In The Clouds!
