Cuccio Colour Rainbow Sorbet - Summer 2020 - Swatches & Review

Press Sample

Summer got you down? Not going outside because of the current shutdowns? I found your fix - get a tan thanks to the latest collection from Cuccio Colours! These semi-bleached neons are the perfect summer shades that made even ME look tan! (no small feat, let me tell ya!! lol)

Pistachio Sorbet

Limey-pistachio green creme

Who doesn't love pistachio? I'll literally eat anything pistachio (I mean have you HAD the Oreo Thins Pistachio? *said in Chandler Bing), so it's no surprise that I love this shade! Leans a little on the lime-side.

Opacity scale (1-5): 2.25

Finish: creme, 2-3 coats to be opaque

Mint Sorbet

Minty green creme

Mint chocolate chip everything is a win in my book, and this is pretty much the perfect shade to mimic my absolute favorite summer treat!  Looks amazing with Pistachio Sorbet and Blueberry Sorbet! I might have to sandwich some chunky black or brown (is brown glitter a thing?) glitter in the middle of two layers of this one! :)

Opacity scale (1-5): 2.5

Finish: creme, 2-3 coats to be opaque

Blueberry Sorbet

Bright sky blue creme

OMG Blue Moon ice cream!!! Any Midwesterners here? Blue Moon is a midwest staple (along with Superman Ice Cream, duh), and I don't think it's made it to many of the other states. If you get a chance, try it! What does it taste like? I dunno... blue? It's the taste of childhood, obviously. This shade is the most opaque of the collection, easily covering in 2 coats, almost in 1!

Opacity scale (1-5): 4

Finish: creme, 2 coats to be opaque

Lavender Sorbet

Neon pinky-lavender creme

You know? I've never had lavender ice cream or sorbet, I can't imagine what it would taste like, flowers? Regardless, this shade is a very bubblegummy leaning shade of lavender!

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Finish: creme, 2 coats to be opaque

Cotton Candy Sorbet

Sweet pink creme

A paler version of Lavender Sorbet, Cotton Candy Sorbet is also a pinky-lavender creme, and though I haven't tried it, I think it would make for a gorgeous ombre!

Opacity scale (1-5): 2.25

Finish: creme, 2-3 coats to be opaque

Dragonfruit Sorbet

Bright neon pink creme

Dragonfruit, despite not really having much flavor, is such a gorgeous fruit - I love the bright pink flesh with the black speckle of the seeds! This one might look cool with a coat of small black glitter. This shade and Punch Sorbet were both really hard to photograph (they're very similar–both bright in different ways!) I've added a comparison shot at the end of the post.

Opacity scale (1-5): 2.5

Finish: creme, 2-3 coats to be opaque

Punch Sorbet

Slightly warm neon pink creme

Slightly lighter than Dragonfruit Sorbet, and ever-so-slightly warmer. I feel like Dragonfruit Sorbet is more than classic neon pink, and Punch has just a hint of something extra!

Opacity scale (1-5): 2.5

Finish: creme, 2-3 coats to be opaque

Peach Sorbet

Orange sherbet creme

I can just imagine this one floating atop some midwestern punch (a mix of fruit punch and Vernor's or Sprite). A super bright peach, and as John Travolta would say... 'It's electrifying!' This one was the sheerest and streakiest of the bunch and on some nails took 4 coats.

Opacity scale (1-5): 2

Finish: creme, 3-4 coats to be opaque

Cuccio has consistently been churning out awesome collections for the last year or so, and Rainbow Sorbet is no different! I can definitely see myself using several of these shades this summer–especially the blues and greens - they're my favorites!! I especially love Mint Sorbet and Blueberry Sorbet, they look amazing together, and they both applied really easily.

Also, since I mentioned above that I was including a comparison shot of Dragonfruit Sorbet and Punch Sorbet, here you go! Dragonfruit Sorbet is on the left, and Punch Sorbet is on the right!
