I had a brief look on the Shu Uemura counter yesterday and got cornered by a SA – a very sweet SA and ended up making some purchases.
I also saw the Paloma Faith collection which is an exclusive to Selfridges! I love Paloma Faith!
The collection is made up of a Rouge Unlimited Lipstick (£19.50), black gel
eyeliner (£19.50) and limited edition lashes (£55) and palette (£57) for a collection with a classic 50’s style statement.
I was disappointed to find that the black gel liner and red lipstick are from the core collection and apart from some lettering on the gel liner. I resisted both since I have plenty of red lipsticks and gel liners to use up!
The lashes are spectacular though, for a special occasion, and the palette is ok, if not a bit dull (a charcoal and a pale white/silver and pink blush) – the new Morphorium palettes are better value at £39 I think.
Overall I love Paloma – I wish they’d more effort and reformulated the red so that it was unique to this collection, even if it was just slightly.
What do you think of this collection?
