The Holo Hookup June 2016 Box Swatches & Review

The Holo Hookup is back for June! Different Dimension, Cupcake Polish and Glisten & Glow created a collection of shades for the upcoming month themed as "Decades of Comedies", each brand chose a comedy from a different decade to inspire their shade. The guest maker this month is F.U.N. Lacquer, a brand based out of Singapore that I've heard nothing except utter gushing about! Let's take a gander at the goodies!
inspiration for this month's shades

Cupcake Polish Shake & Bake is a royal blue linear holo with shiny silver flakies, inspired by Talledega Nights, a hilarious Will Ferrell movie. Insane holo and pigmentation! Really great formula. Some Cupcake Polishes I've tried lean thick but this one was super buttery. This is two coats.

Different Dimension As If! is a light pink linear holo with added shimmers and microglitters, inspired by the quintessential 90's movie Clueless. The pink has a slight lilac tone, making it kinda unique to my collection! I love all pinks and I have seen Clueless about a zillion times so I adore this. Fab formula, easy to put on. Also has great coverage, this is two coats.

Glisten & Glow Bueller... Bueller... Bueller... is a "gilded light brown" linear holographic loaded with gold shimmers and flakies, inspired by 80's movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off. This was more on the sheer side, but built up in three coats. Another easy to apply formula. I love this, it's incredibly unique. I just watched Ferris Bueller the other day, so classic!

F.U.N. Lacquer Superhero Landing is a black linear holo with red/copper shimmers and red holo glitters, inspired by the recent antihero movie Deadpool. This is my first foray into F.U.N. Lacquer, there is always a ton of buzz about this brand. I really love the brush on this polish, it made it super easy to apply. Another awesome, easy formula, opaque in two coats. This does dry dull so you'll want a top coat for shine. I don't care for the Marvel universe when it comes to movies (I'm a DC girl), but I loved Deadpool!

The Holo Hookup June box will be available on their website on Saturday, May 21st at 9pm EST through Saturday, May 28th at 9pm EST. The box is $40 plus shipping. This is a pre-order system and they usually ship out the boxes on the 12th of the following month, but due to the international brand joining in this time, they are pushing it back a few days until June 15th. So what do you think about this edition of The Holo Hookup? Which shade and/or movie inspiration is your favorite?
