I recently made a haul from VDL cosmetics, a Korean brand with quite a lot of interesting products and two of the eyeshadow products I got were VDL’s eyeshadows, specifically from the ‘Sparkle’ shades – the super glittery colours. I chose Sparkle Chocolat 208 and Sparkle Bronze 903; These eyeshadows come in boxes, and the actual cases are very similar if no identical to MAC solos. They are priced quite reasonably – I paid about […]
Finally the 5th and final shade in the Tony Moly Galaxy collection is GT05 a purple toned polish. It has purple and blue glitters and is quite chunky. I know a lot of people who love purple polishes although it’s not really my thing – they seem to look better on other people!
Another super chunky glitter nail polish from Tony Moly Galaxy Nail Polish! Like the copper one I swatched yesterday, GT04 is a very glittery thick green. I love green. There are some real strengths to the glitter polishes; they are so densely packed and not wishy washy at all.
Today’s polish is Tony Moly Galaxy Polish in GT03, one of my favourites which is a rich copper and bronze. The base is sort of a golden brown but you can’t see it for all the glitter! It looks a bit simple in there but on the nail there is more too it; copper, gold, red, even a hint of blue.
Today I have Tony Moly Galaxy Nail Polish in GT02 which is a dark navy blue base (to me anyway) with tons of micro sparkles. It is similar to GT01 (reviewed yesterday) although the glitter is finer and there are fewer contrasts in the colour. I think it’s more elegant GT01. The glitters in this are red, blue, some gold. It feels finer on the nail than the other polishes which are like sandpaper!
I am slowly but surely getting to grips with the Accessorize make up range; the feedback from other bloggers and readers seem to be positive and so far it has exceeded my expectations. I have here a Diamond Sparkle Lip Gloss – the shade is not one I would choose for myself but still, pink is pretty universal? This lip gloss is PURE. UTTER. GLITTER. This is not sort of shimmery or sort of glittery […]
So I’m not great at nail art but nail glitter – I can do. It’s easy…sprinkle sprinkle. But my problem is not knowing when to stop. I was that kid who would start colouring in a picture within the lines, then suddenly would enthusiastically start adding glitter and stars and pipe cleaners until I couldn’t even pick the picture up. Anyway, so I don’t end up dunking my entire finger into glitter, I bought these […]
I have messed about with body glitter before, with a cheap home kit and a Jinny Rainbow one. One problem I had was running out of stencils – sure, whenever you buy a kit you get a set amount but these are easy to get through when you are, erm, glitter happy. So I was sent these fun stencils to try from Arm Kandi – a site which specialises in stencils only. They have tons […]
There was a time when I just lived for glitter liners but now – those days have gone. Nowadays the glitter liner is saved for special occasions and for days when I can’t see properly… “Did you do your make up in the dark?” “Actually…yes” MeMeMe’s rather cute offering is the Flitter me Up dual ended eyeliners, launched as limited edition products. There are 5 shades to choose from, I have two Xenon and Neon: […]
I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Glitters! Oh how the child in me loves glittery nails. I think they look better when they start to chip too – cos you can’t tell as much! This polish I have had for-ever. One thing about Shu Uemura Nail Polishes – they seem to separate quite quickly after purchase but after a shake, they live on and […]
I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Glitters! This polish is not subtle. The glittery bits are like saucers…but look closely – they are HEXOGRAMS! Coollll! I quite like it on its own (see above) but I think it would be a fun, funky top coat too. The thing about this glitter though, it that it’s a little sparse, so the next thing you know, […]
I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Glitters! What’s not to love about this Nail Polish? It looks silly? I don’t care! I think it’s uber cute! Barry M’s Once Upon A Time has little party glitters – long strips that look like bacteria multiplying – in it. It takes 2-3 coats to build up to a super glittery look. I don’t entirely love Barry […]
I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Glitters! I kind of like Jessica Polish even though I own a total of…3. The texture of the ones I have is THICK, but at the same time it applies nicely and dries quickly. Me likes! Starlet is the glitter of the bunch and I have to say I really like this. You don’t need loads of coats […]
Can anything good come of uber chunky glitter? Some say yes. Some say no. I am somewhere in the middle as the disco queen in me loves glitter and spangle and would happily be a bingo caller at the weekends. But then as you get older there is definitely such a thing as TOO MUCH GLITTER, ARE YOU JUST WEIRD? Also I have sensitive eyes (will hopefully be making my next you tube video on […]
Sophie Ellis Bextor is certainly a very unique looking woman, although her jawline reminds me of Quagmire. She tends to wear quite bright, funky eye make up too – but what do you girls think of her latest look? I adore glitter, and she has a great cat eye shape for a lot of make up looks but personally, I think they gold all under the brow is overkill. What say you?
Last year I went to a Jinny Rainbow stand near me and got some small glittery designs done. Although it was fun (the kids* loved it) I did wonder how often a grown lady would want to have a design put on her body with it being super glittery ‘an all. Anyway, they listened and came back with a finer, more adult friendly glitter and asked if I would like to try one of their […]
I have the best readers. Why? I had mentioned my search for a really good sticky gel for holding down glitter and reader Cucumpear spotted this glitter and fixing gel and sent it to me. How sweet! Here are the products she sent: Along with the gel came a lovely deep purple glitter. The gel is not too thick (like lip gloss which is impossible to get off). Its quite liquid and doesn’t feel to […]
Not everyone likes Glitter on the lips but I do! This Barry M Lipgloss in Strawberry Glitter caught my eye because it is pure glitter: Its the kind of thing that could really work on top of a lipstick, especially a matte lipstick in a similar colour. I’ve got it on here by itself: Its not superfine glitter you understand – its more party, in your face glitter but I kind of like it, its […]
Its the party season! Well not for me. I avoid Christmas parties like the plague. But if I did show up to parties, I would would be dunking myself in glitter so I sparkled like a disco ball. I was sent one of these Barry M Lash Glitters to try, rather apt for Xmas: This blue is a lovely electric blue shade. It comes in a handy pen thing rather than traditional mascara form: This […]
I was intended to give this cute little Barry M Set from Superdrug to my cousin (aged 15 and totally into make up at the moment) but then I realised, as she used the ‘yeah-wotever’ line on me again, she was an ungrateful little brat so decided to try it out myself instead. That is my punishment style. (Its ok baby! I’m going out to get you another one, ok? Don’t me mad with me!) […]
