Lillian Eve In the Moment Collection Swatches and Review: Cabana Girl

*press sample*

Lillian Eve Cabana Girl (2 coats)

Hi guys, I'm back! I had a great trip to Virginia Beach and Washington DC (where I worked at the 2016 pen show). Also, I just received the fall collection from Zoya, so be on the lookout for those in the next week or 2. Lillian Eve is a new brand to the blog, but they're one I've heard about for a few years. When they contacted me to review a polish, of course I jumped at the chance. The brand is named after the owner's daughters, Lillian and Evelyn (aww!), and the polishes are vegan, cruelty-free, and 5-free. I didn't know this, but they also have a monthly subscription box called Color Monthly and costs $10 for 1 full-size nail polish, a bonus product sample, and exclusive special offers. You can find more info here.

Tonight I have Cabana Girl which comes from the In the Moment Collection and is a turquoise cream that leans heavily towards green. I've been wearing a ton of indies with a variety of finishes, so it was a little weird going back to a creme. I've never used the brand before so I didn't know what to expect in terms of the formula, but I'm happy to report that it was perfect! Perfect! I could have easily used 1 coat for full opacity, but I used 2 out of habit (and because photos are unforgiving). I wish Essie's cremes could be this easy to apply. This is a great green to wear as a pedicure during the summer, right?

It appears that most Lillian Eve polishes have creme or shimmer finishes (no glitters or flakes right now) and all will set you back $12. This is at the higher end for indies, especially for cremes, but I think that the formula may make it worth it for you. You can find out more about Lillian Eve on their website, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram pages.
