Great review, did you see how well blacks and whites worked over them? Or layered together? Thank you.

it's okay.. Everything washed off pretty well.. I left it on for almost an hour. The orange did have a very very faint stain, but it came off with a second washing.

Man, I'm wondering if I did something wrong. I have the silver and shimmer white and they were awful for line work. They were a lot like Snaz. Any advise, or do you think it might just be those colors?

No idea scratch ? Maybe they are just more of a transparent color, so they don't work well for line work. I only bought these two colors, and they seem to work just fine Shocked

I personally am intrigued by a few colors. I would not order though until the smell has been removed. I wouldn't want any girls or boys especially to smell like old lady perfume!! ack! silent

Cool. Thanks Ashley. I wish I knew what the Glitter Colors were. I notice they have a regular Gold, a Gold Shimmer and then a Gold Glitter.

Great objective review. Love it!

Being that I live next to sillyfarm I have tried them.
I must say, I ma not terribly impressed.
Don't get me wrong, yea they have nice colors, but they are over priced and smell like my grandmother's bra drawer.

Yea man, I agree with the smell stuff. Some people are saying that it's a pleasant smell or that it's no worse than Kryolan, but I disagree.. BUT, Heather told me the next batch will be without the smell! Which I'm loving. I really like the colors, so I'm all about some of these paints.

I used them at my job yesterday which was 98 degree heat, 100%humidity, and they held up just fine Smile

...I guess the trick will be figuring out when to order to make sure you get the new, scent-free batch Razz

I would recomend contacting SF and asking them to post in the product description when they become scent free and send it out in their newsletter. Communication is key, I think.

Also, what does next batch mean? It could be next week or next year.

I am super excited to see some new colors on the market but would like the scent free ones myself.

Okay, I just picked mine up at the UPS store. I bought 8 of them when they first came out. Shipping to Canada took a bit.
Anyways............they smell horrible. Embarassed
I almost puked when I opened the box. I bought a kabuki brush as well, so I tried to pale pink as a mask, washed it off immediaty and one hour later can still smell it on my skin. I called SF to complain and the woman answering the phone appologized about the horendous smell.
The unfortunatly do not have a return policy on paints. SO, I am stuck with this crap. The colours are gorgous.
But, I cannot get past the smell. I have them on my back deck with hubby;s stinky work boots. Wah....I am so disappointed.

I would call again super upset.
and i mean super upset.
*note: be upset at the product, not the person on the phone.
Get them on YOUR side
then....

Tell them how disappointed you are in these brand new paints
how it wasn't noted any where that is was scented in the product description
how they make you gag
how the smell was still there after so long
how you can't possibly use them on clients
just go on and on

They will give you something.
A credit, a refund, something.

You just have to refuse to back down.

To be honest I wish I could call for you because even typing this out gives me an adrenaline rush lol... but they know me. So yeah : /
