Swatches and review: Orly Faint of Heart

Hello hello! I have today Orly's Faint of heart from their Cool Romance collection. Faint of heart is a pretty neutral taupe shade. When I first put it on, I thought it looked really similar to Ulta3 Earl grey and Color Club High society. I'll get a comparison post up of this soon!

Anyway. I started off with three coats of Faint of heart. I found the first coat to be really thin and was afraid it wouldn't be opaque, but it built up by the third coat.

Whilst it was a nice crème, I needed that something more so layering it was! I applied two coats of Australis Speck-tacular over it. Yes, it is a flakey!! I need more of these hehehe. Too bad the flakies were so sparse, even with two coats I wasn't satisfied with the coverage it gave. Ahh, the search for more flakies continues!

What do you think of flakies over neutral shades like Faint of heart? :)

Thanks for reading!

  1. The flakies look beautiful!

  2. I really love this combo a lot! I am a huge fan of neutrals AND flakies so why not put them together! It's really subtle but just gives that little something special to Faint Of Heart,

  3. Ohhhh that flakie is so cool! I know finger paints "asylum" is similar but I wouldn't mind adding that to my collection of flakies.

    I also like that you were able to pair with a neutral instead of the standard black that most flakies look better over.

  4. They're gorgeousssss <333

  5. They do, don't they? :D I need to try out flakies and neutrals more hehe.

  6. It's a lovely, work friendly shade :D

  7. Ahhh, you lucky US ladies have the Fingerpaints flakies to play with - jealous! :P Speck-tacular does remind me of Asylum though, they're definitely similar.
