Desfiles de Samba is a super bright green jelly crème. Mattése Elite describes it as "parade-worthy" and it definitely lives up to the name. Application was easy, though it did take 3 coats to reach opacity.
Rainha, which means "queen" in Portuguese, is another very bright polish. This one is a true crème, described as "regal baby pink." Again, the description is spot on with this color. It was super pigmented and covered well in 2 coats.
Rei Momo is my favorite of the three colors I received. It is a "high-voltage hot pink" crème according to Mattése Elite. Rei Momo leans almost red, a seriously bright neon pink. This was also very pigmented, and was opaque in 2 easy coats.
I also did a quick comparison between these two pinks. It's crazy how they are both bright pink crèmes, but they look so different! Rei Momo definitely leans red, whereas Rainha is a true bright baby pink.
These gorgeous Mattése Elite shades retail at $5.99 and are exclusive to Ricky's NYC stores and the Ricky's NYC Website. There are 4 other shades in the Carnaval Collection as well. I have my eye on the bright purple crème.
