Jessica Cosmetics Ignite Summer 2010 Collection

Jessica's Ignite collection is six shades of neons for summer. I have to be honest and say that this collection was really outside my comfort zone. I don't own many neons. I think I own four. I remember the neons from the 80's and that isn't a very good memory!

The formula on these suprised me. They went on with two thick coats and they weren't streaky. Usually I need to wear a nude base to get good color coverage with neons but not with these. They did dry matte, like neons do, so a topcoat is needed for shine.

Electric Teal is more green than teal and has shimmer. Reminds me of Misa The Grass is Greener on My Side but the Misa is a bit more sheer and has a more pronounced shimmer. It is bright but there is a softness to it. It's pretty. The first photo is as close to color accurate as I could get it.

Purple Burst is a neon purple. This one didn't dry as matte and looks slightly jelly. Reminds me of Essie Perky Purple but the formula on the Jessica is way better. When I wore the Essie it cracked and came off in pieces. I really like this one. It's a neon but it doesn't scream 80's neon. I love the jelly look to it as well. It's almost an elegant neon.

I had a hard time getting a color accurate photo. The first photo shows color and the second shows the brightness of it.

Yellow Flame is a bright, bright neon highlighter yellow. Whoa! Picture this really, really neon!

Pink Explosion is a bright pink neon. This is a bright Barbie neon pink.

Orange Zest is a neon orange.

Blue Blast is a bright blue. This is almost like a jelly formula. It looks nautical without being navy.

My picks are Blue Blast and Purple Burst.

I can't say this was an original collection but I can say that the formula was a hit, especially for neons. So if you're looking for a good neon these may be it. I'm not sure of the release date on these.

It is! The photos just don't do these colors justice.
