Sinful Colors in Angelik + Comparisons

Direct sunlight
I ended up picking up 15 polishes from the Kylie Jenner collections for Sinful Colors - not because I wanted to support her (I'm indifferent), but because they are so cheap, and - let's face it - there were a lot of great colors. Today, I'm showing one of my favorites, Sinful Colors in Angelik, a very pale, slightly cool-toned pink with white-flashing-gold shimmer and a matte finish. In some lights, it's so pale it looks like a soft white. I've really been drawn to these delicate, pretty colors lately. This one looks great matte and with top coat to bring the shimmer out. The formula is a bit thinner than I prefer, but application was a breeze. Because it has a matte finish, it dries really quickly. I did 3 thin coats - no issues with ridges or unevenness.

This was part of Sinful Colors's "Kylie Jenner Denim & Bling" collection for Summer 2016. SC & KJ released 3 different collections this summer: "Denim & Bling," "Trend MATTErs - Pure Satin Mattes," and "Trend MATTErs - Velvety Demi Mattes." And, you can see the cap of Angelik has "Trend Matters" printed on it, even though on their website and in their displays it was part of "Denim & Bling." Overall, these releases were a convoluted mess - some polishes were available at Walgreens or Target exclusively, and my Walgreens stores never received them. I got some at Target, but the majority I purchased online on Walgreens.com. They are still available there (I don't see them in stores anymore), and there's a promo code for 25% off regular priced beauty and personal care products using GLOWOUT at checkout (expires at 11:59 p.m. CST on August 27), if you're interested. The page I've linked shows all the Sinful Colors collections, and if you're looking for Angelik, it's listed under the "Trend MATTErs Collection Shimmer Mattes" link. 🙄 Also, the Sinful Colors website has a store finder for each Kylie collection here if you want to go out and hunt.

With all of that said, I have more swatches, including pictures with top coat, and comparisons after the jump.

I've chosen pictures that show both the white and pink tones of the polish. You can see the shimmer is nice and delicate - it reminds me of Powder Puff, a great matte white shimmer that Revlon came out with in 2010.

Here it is with top coat:

I didn't have anything really similar in my collection. (It's scary how much that ends up happening given how big my collection is.) Marc Jacobs in #162 Blanche is an ivory with white pearl. Nicole by OPI in Kim-pletely in Love is a sheerer jelly polish, a bit warmer pink, and has the same type of shimmer as Angelik, but more sparse and white-flashing-blue. OPI in You Callin Me a Lyre is very similar in color to Kim-pletely in love but slightly warmer, a sheer light pink-peach jelly with no shimmer. Marc Jacobs in #206 Resurrection is a peach-pink creme, a bit cooler and deeper than Angelik.

I found swatches to compile my shopping list on Phoebe Moon's YouTube channel. Here's the video for the "Denim and Bling" collection.

So, do you like Angelik? And, of course, most importantly: could you ever buy something Kardashian-adjacent? 🤔🙄😁
