Jessica: Standing Ovation & Prima Donna

Hello beautiful readers. Today I have two colors that were sent to me from Jessica Cosmetics.

First up is Standing Ovation. Which is a peridot green frost color. I think the color is really pretty, and would be nice for winter, but I do not love the finish. This is extremely frosty and, as you can see from my photos, every brush stroke shows. If it didn't show the streaks it would be just beautiful. I used two coats for full opacity. 

Next up is Prima Donna which is a really pretty royal purple frost/shimmer.  This one is slightly less frosty than Standing Ovation but still what I could consider a frost. I had less of an issue with streaks than I did with Standing Ovation.

I really love the color of this one. It's got such a pretty shimmer too. When applying just use some extra care and you can avoid a real streaky mess. This is two coats and fully opaque.

Overall these are really pretty colors but I am not a fan of the finish of Standing Ovation. What do you think of these? Do you have any tips for avoiding brush strokes on a frost?
