LCN Urban Expressionism Collection for Fall 2012 Swatches and Review!

Good morning my fellow lacquered lovers!  Happy Friday!  I hope you are all having a lovely week and are looking forward to the long weekend!  I will be spending a good portion of my weekend reorganizing my stash, updating my spreadsheet and getting some really exciting stuff for Lacquered Lover queued up.  But first, I have a collection from last Fall to show you!  I know, I'm behind BUT this collection is some gorgeous grey's which is perfect for this time of year!

The LCN Urban Expressionism collection consists of 4 cremes based off of 4 major fashion cities in the world!  Now, without further ado, on to the polish!

Above:  2 coats of Tokyo Expression

First up is Tokyo Expression, a very dark grey creme.  I like how this shade is still definitely grey but has a lot of pigment and vibrancy to it.  The formula was fabulous, practically a 1 coater although I added a second coat out of habit.

Above:  2 coats of Paris Chic

Paris Chic is a very yellow toned beige.  I don't really think this is a nude because I can't imagine any one's skin tone being this color but if you're a beige fan, this could be a good palette cleanser.  It's a bit too yellow toned for my skin.  The formula was great, opaque in two coats.

Above:  2 coats of London Beat

London Beat is a mushroom shade of taupe that has hints of grey and purple to it.   I actually really like this shade!  It's darker than a nude but very professional looking!  The formula was great, opaque in two coats and lots of pigment.

Above:  2 coats of New York Glam

Last but certainly not least is New York Glam!  I think this is my favorite of the bunch and not just because it's named after my city!  New York Glam is a very green toned deep grey creme.  It's gorgeous!  The formula was practically a 1 coater but I added a second out of habit and I love how rich and creamy it is!

All in all, this is a great collection of cremes that everyone needs in their collections.  Sometimes you need the basics either on their own or as a layering polish!  The formulas on all of these were great.  You can buy all 4 of these as a set on the LCN Website HERE for $29.90 and each polish is 8ml.

What did you think of these polishes? Must have? Any dupes?
