I got my lovely aunt to pick something up for me from Duty Free and…she failed. She allegedly said that she thought she could buy it “on the plane” which at that point she presented me with some out of date Turkish Delight instead. A month later she was on another holiday and this time I insisted that she buy the Dior palette BEFORE she boarded a plane…and she did! Here is Dior 5 Couleurs Couture […]
I have already showed you my Mary Quant palette which took much planning. On my last trip to London I went to the Mary Quant shop again, with a plan to put together a palette of neutrals and browns! I bought 8 in total and a case: I had semi planned this in my head by looking at the website colours but once I got there, it was much easier to swatch and decide what would […]
Peripera released 4 glitter shades in blue, green-blue, pink and gold for the Autumn 2011 season. I have Sparkle Aqua P014 here: Love glitter polishes but can’t bear to take them off. It goes right through me, the scraping of the name….eeek.
The newest polishes from Peripera are glitters! Have you seen their range yet? For UK ladies, eBay is your best bet and it takes about 2 weeks to arrive. Here are the 4 colours in the glitter range – I bought 2 of them:
Peripera has a set of 5 new ‘satin’ polish colours – all very elegant, metallic and shiny! I chose just one of the shades because I felt the other colours (although pretty) are a bit….dated. I don’t know…I picture my mum wearing them circa 1993. I chose the most modern colour which is the snotty Green Khaki: Pretty! There’s something about metallics though, it can make chubby fingers look…chubbier. Why didn’t I inherit my mothers […]
I mentioned in an earlier post that the Peripera green polishes are gorgeous – they are! This one Metallic Green is a real beauty: Does this green infused with gold toned pearl remind you of anything? Yes! Missha Crystal Polish in HGR01!
Sisley’s Légende d’Automne is not a collection of new products, but a gathering of the existing, which is quite a nice idea because if you already have products from the brand, you can no doubt find a new way of wearing it. One of the products presented with the collection is their Phyto Lip Shine in 01 Sheer Nude: I have a thing for high end luxury lipsticks in pretty packaging! The Lip Shine collection […]
I remember the first time I used a crackle polish (it was Barry M) and i was amazed, Mr C was amazed, the cousins were amazed. These days you can buy crackle polishes everywhere! Every brand makes them and in different colours too! Peripera also has a range, called ‘Zebra’ nails: I chose just 1 shade in the gold. I am a bit over the zebra crackle thing although it is funky.
Metallic Coral is a rather interesting nail polish from Peripera, a cute pink with a yellow gold edge to it. I love the pearl running through it although sometimes it feels a bit 80s to me…
The Peripera Crystal range of polishes are particularly pretty; they leave a foiled finish as opposed to a super sparkly, or metallic one which I really like! Crystal Yellow looks yellow on the swatch but it is more og a yellow gold as opposed to a true yellow: There’s such a gorgeous fine shimmer to it!
I don’t usually go for pale nail polishes but this Peripera Nail Polish in Crystal Beige looked very wearable with a foil finish: The cat shaped lid will never get old for me! This gold has loads of tiny micro-sparkles which gives it that finished look. It only takes 2 coats to get a really nice finish!
Probably my favourite Peripera polish of all the colours I hauled – P013 Crystal Brown is a beautiful elegant, fine shimmered brown. A lot of the muted colours you can buy these days are quite ‘dead’ and ‘muddy’ aren’t they? Sometimes I feel like a colour that is a bit drab but most of the time…what are nails there for if not to sparkle!?
The green polishes from the Peripera range are gorgeous – real beauties! This is one of the darkest greens from the Smoky range *their spelling of smoky!* – a deep dark forest green. Peripera polishes are nice and fairly easy to apply.
Come ye, Come ye…for the next few days I will be swatching my Peripera nail polish haul to show you what these pretty, pretty varnishes look like! I’ll get the facts out with this post! Peripera is a fairly small beauty company from Korea! Their polishes is one of their big ranges and comes in this formula (perfume enamel) and a one coat quick finish formula. The Perfume Enamel polishes come in this cute format […]
Rimmel London’s Kate Moss Lipstick collection was mighty popular the last time I passed a Boots counter; the nudes in particular seemed to be sold out. However I don’t think the range is Limited so there’s no rush! Image; Kate Moss photographs so well (obviously): I have some lip swatches for you. I haven’t done many for a while because I find it really causes flaking after a while (taking the product off and […]
Who could miss Kate Moss’ lipstick collection for Rimmel London a few weeks back? The Lipstick Collection contains 7 Shades in black packaging with a Kate signature and heart, and the lipsticks have numbers not names; 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and curiously, 8 and 12. There’s a good selection of shades, from red, pinks, nudes and a funky purple: The packaging is fine, quite simple and sleek. As I have so many images of […]
Soap & Glory recently launched a rather comprehensive range of colour cosmetics and that included 2 eyeshadow quads called ‘Lid Stuff’. There are 3 variations, I have 2 of them here, Smokey Dokey and What’s Nude: Smokey Dokey has four colours in deep smokey shades, Diamondust, Chine, Black Gold and Smokin’ What’s Nude contains Vanilla, Pink T, Mudhoney, Aubersheen.
Aube disappeared a few years ago and became Aube Couture, quite a grown up range of cosmetics which a chic, elegant edge. I like their products although they are made for the grown up lady so everything is quite muted and subtle. I purchased one of their new Designing Impression Eyes in 554 which is a purple set. As with a lot of Japanese compacts, it’s packed full with 5 colours, a mirror and 4 […]
I wonder if you can suddenly catch a beauty disease? I think I have temporarily dropped the lipstick disease for the nail polish one. I can’t stop buying them! I generally favour bright shades, like hot pinks and corals – they look best with my skintone although I am growing to like these sort of dirty muted nudes too. These are the shades you’d buy jumpers in right? For work? Tony Moly polishes are lovely, […]
I have had a huge crush on a nail polish this last week, and it’s all because of RMK! There are 4 new seasonal shades launched with the Autumn 2011 Dusty Bright collection – P24 Gold Beige, P25 Gray, P26 Deep Red and EX06 Green. EX06 is the only limited edition shade in the collection. I have been looking for an elegant green that can be worn every day without making me look 12 years […]
