Krucial Cosmetics - Cystic Fibrosis Awareness collection (swatches and review)

Hi guys! Today I have a wonderful awareness collection to share with you! Kaitlyn of Krucial Cosmetics has created a beautiful Cystic Fibrosis Awareness collection in honor of her 17 year old cousin, who was born with the disease.

Krucial Cosmetics

Each year, Kaitlyn and her family join Great Strides for a charity walk to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis Awareness. She will be donating $5.00 for every bottle sold  to Great Strides and will be presenting a check to them when they walk in May! Such a wonderful cause!

Cystic Fibrosis is a disease passed down through families that causes thick, sticky mucus to build up in the lungs, digestive tract, and other areas of the body. It is one of the most common chronic lung diseases in children and young adults and is a life-threatening disorder.

Courage is a gorgeous purple blueish jelly filled with scattered holo! This one is on the sheer side, so for my photos I did three coats plus topcoat. This also as a bit of a duo chrome effect in that it appears lavender at some angles and more blue in others. I feel this one would work best as a topper of sorts! I really wish I had tried it over a black base....

Hope is a beautiful deep pink jelly filled with what looks like pinky, copper glitters and flakies! It is so pretty and the formula was great! Just two coats plus topcoat here! This also has a bit of a duo chrome effect. In certain angles, it has a lavender/gray hue to it! I wish I'd used a matte topcoat, as I bed it would look amazing!

Strides for Roses an amazing glitter polish! It has a clear jelly base and is loaded with magenta and yellow glitters, as well as some lavender toned shards. So gorgeous! I actually did matte this and it was even better....but I accidentally deleted the photo!

Inspiration is a glorious bright teal metallic, with a bit of scattered holo!  Awesome formula, just two coats plus topcoat! This one has an inner glow to it, that is so beautiful!

Breathe a deep, yet vibrant purple with a touch of scattered holo!  This also has a duo chrome effect that shows some beautifully glowing blue tones!

Strength has a beautiful crème mauve toned base with little touches of purple and lavender colored diamond glitters. This one is tricky on the first coat, but the second deepens the color!

I love awareness collections and this one is amazing! I mean....purple! Really though, these are all beautiful polishes, with amazing formulas and a wonderful cause!

These will be available in her shoo February 16th! Please check out Krucial Cosmetics at the links below for more information on this, and upcoming collections!
