OPI Pink of Hearts 2013 Breast Cancer Awareness Collection Review, Photos, Swatches

opi pink of hearts collection 2013


Every October, OPI does something special for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so I bring you this year’s Pink of Hearts Collection.

This duo pack is designed to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research and support. In 2013, OPI will donate $25,000 in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) to Susan G. Komen®. OPI will also donate $5,000 to Rethink Breast Cancer in Canada. Let’s take a closer look!

More than a Glimmer, Pink-ing of You

Inside Pink of Hearts 2013, you’ll receive two shades; More than a Glimmer (limited edition shade with both micro and macro matte glitters in a rainbow of colors), and Pink-ing of You (soft pink creme). Additionally, there are 10 pink ribbon decals, and 10 decorative crystal decals to help you create your own special look.  

More than a Glimmer is pretty interesting, the base looks kind of milky, but it’s actually just transparent and dries completely matte, which also gives the glitter a flat appearance too. It can be worn solo (2 coats are best), and you shouldn’t wear top coat, or it will spoil the matte effect. On the flip side, you can add top coat and bring out some shine. I’ve worn it as a matte top coat over Pink-ing of You as well—and I think it’s a cute, feminine look.

Pink-ing of You is part of OPI’s permanent range, so you’ve likely seen it before. This is an opaque soft pink creme that gives me perfect coverage in two coats. It has a nice self-leveling flow, which I’ve come to expect from OPI.

You probably already have a zillion pink nail shades, but if you want to get your hands on More than a Glimmer, it looks like this may be the only way to snag it!
