Six new (permanent) shades have just been released, and they represent subtle nuance/undertone variations [as the whole 'fuchsia + random art movement' thing suggests] rather than genuinely expanding the twenty-strong shade range into brave new worlds. This isn't really bad news, as I'm sure you all know by now it can prove surprisingly tricky to find exactly the right tone of rose, plum or cerise in such a pigmented formula, which can sometimes change colours as it sets on the lips; these new variations round things out nicely.
* starred shades contain shimmer
21 Orange Fusion
22 Prune Minimale*
23 Fuchsia Cubiste*
24 Fuchsia Intemporel
25 Fuchsia Neo-Classic (see my look here)
26 Violine Surrealiste
(Following notes I made from swatching on skin -- apologies if some of these nuances don't come across in the paper swatches.)
21 is lighter and less red than 8; less pink than 6 -- the most orange orange in the line so far.
22 is browner than 1 but less brown/more plum than 3. Has shimmer.
23 is more red and less brown than 4; deeper and more berried than 5. Has shimmer.
24 is rosier than 25, which is a clearer reddened pink. 24 is also more purple than 11 and more pink than 10.
25 is deeper and less pink than 13; lighter and cooler than 14; more reddened than 15. It's a reddened pink to 11's pinky red.
26 is slightly deeper and redder than 16.
I think those with a substantial existing wardrobe of glossy stains would probably be able to mix their current shades to get most if not all of these new ones. Based on my dabblings,
1 + 4 = 22
4 + 5 = 23
10 + 13 = 24
11 + 15 = 25
10 + 16 = 26
E.g. Here are 11 and 15 on my hand -- can you see them adding up to 25?
Whereas 24, with its more muted, rosier depths, is a shade I can't achieve from my GS palette [1, 7, 9, 11, 15], and that's the one I'll be keeping.
Do you have any glossy sums of your own? :) Any of the new shades tempting you?
