Spring has sprung!  And Colors by Llarowe is making this a wonderful spring!

*Press Sample*

Spring is flowers, beautiful colors, and a time where everything seems so fresh again.  CbL has captured all of that and more.


This year’s spring collection is a special one with much sentiment.  This is an 8 piece tribute collection dedicated to Helen, Leah Ann Larowe’s dear friend. And this is her tribute:

There are times in life that we find a person who inspires us.  Even though I have never met Helen as she lives an ocean away, she is my hero.  I always thought life was just a means to an end and that life was a painful journey with rich rewards at the end.  I was wrong.  Helen has shown me that I need to treasure each and every moment here on earth and to live as if tomorrow will never come.  Helen finds joy in the smallest moments and even in adversity.  She is and has been battling an illness with grace, dignity and a zest for life I have not seen before.  She reminds me that there are challenges in life that show us what is really important and how to meet those challenges head on and never give up.  My outlook on life has changed dramatically just from knowing this wonderful lady who is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.  Thank God for you Helen, it is an honor to be called your friend.  This collection was inspired by your spirit, your heart and your wonderful soul.

A portion of the proceeds from this collection are being donated to Helen’s charity:  https://www.willowfoundation.org.uk/donate

“Helen” is a muted creamy turquoise crelly with intense pink to gold to red shimmer.  Shown is two coats plus top coat.


“Rare Jade” is a jade green crelly with gold flakes.  Shown is two coats plus top coat.


“Miss You My Friend” is a light sky blue intense linear holo with silver micro flakes.  Shown is two coats plus top coat.  This formula reminds me of a blue version of Together Forever.


“Pretty In Pink” is a bright pink intense linear holo with pink, cherry and rose holo micro glitters.  Shown is two coats plus top coat.


“Did You Know You’re My Hero?” is a muted bright blue crelly with intense pink to gold to red shimmer.  Shown is two coats plus top coat.


“On The Wings Of Eagles” is a charcoal taupe crelly with intense pink to gold to red shimmer.  Shown is two coats plus top coat.


“Life Is A Highway” is a magenta pink with scattered holo and magenta and purple iridescent micro glitter.  Shown is two coats plus top coat.  To me, this seems like Santa Baby’s pink sister.


“You Make Me Smile” is a bright, almost neon pink coral soft linear holo with a blue/purple shift.  Shown is two coats plus top coat.


This collection releases on April 1st for pre-order from 12pm – 8pm MDT.  Also releasing that day is the April PoTM and the new four cremes and shimmers.  All of those swatches can be found here or here.
