Color: Vagabondage (M∙A∙C)
Retail Price: $15.00 (USD)
This shade is from the summer 2012 M∙A∙C Beth Ditto collection, and it’s described as a mid-tone lavender creme. Honestly, I’m not too crazy about this shade, but it’s mostly due to personal preference; I think the shade looks super awkward against my skin tone. Regardless, I do think this is an edgy color for summer, and can we talk about how fun the name Vagabondage is?! ;)
Sadly, much like Life and Beth (M∙A∙C), Vagabondage also suffers from a thin formula that makes the application process a streaky nightmare. In the photo above, I am wearing four coats of nail polish (and I think the brightness of this shade is all that kept me from needing five coats like with Life and Beth). As far as I know, the average creme should be pleasantly opaque in two coats, right? Maybe three. But four coats for a creme finish is so not on!
M∙A∙C carries some of my favorite cosmetics and nail polishes, so I’ve never really had any reason to complain about them; however, there’s always an exception to the rule. M∙A∙C totally missed the mark with the Beth Ditto nail lacquers. The colors are unique and/or edgy for a summer collection, but the formulas completely ruin it for me!
I still love you, M∙A∙C…just bring your A-game next collection.
