Jin Soon and Amy Smilovic of Tibi Fall/Winter 2013 Collection Swatch: Obsidian

Jin Soon Obsidian (2 coats)

*press sample*

I've heard of Jin Soon, but was never able to try any of their products, mostly due to the price point. Did this polish live up to the price? In my opinion, yes. Obsidian comes from a collaboration for fall and winter with Amy Smilovic and was inspired by utilitarian and layering. All polishes in this collection all contain mica to give their color and they are 5-Free. The top of the bottle is similar to Illamasqua and Butter London where there is a cap you take off to get to the brush. 

I don't know if I can put into words how beautiful this one looks. It has multiple colors, but blue, pink and gold are the dominant mica colors in a black base. The formula was slightly thin, but I had no problem with application. So, onto the price. This is going to set you back $18. Sure, it's a splurge, but it's a great polish. You can find this collection at Space NK, Sephora online and the Tibi Boutique website.
