Slowly but surely, Paul & Joe have been rehauling their make up. They haven’t changed the actual exterior packaging (good) but they’ve been swapping over their eyeshadows, lipsticks, face products for some time. Their classic eye glosses, which were so good and unique to Paul & Joe have changed to the Eye Gloss Duos…. They […]
When I saw the Guerlain Ecrin 4 Couleurs eyeshadow palettes, there was definitely one in the world for me. Do you ever sense that about a product? That there is one that is just made for you? Palettes with bright green or black; they are usually indicators that I will love them!
The thing about glittery eyeliners is that they can look really pretty, or really cheap and tacky. It’s the same for the textures; I’ve always found very glittery eye pencils to be quite hard and scratchy, and very hard to use on my delicate eyes. I quite like the now discontinued (I think) Nars Chubby […]
Despite being a big fan of cream eyeshadows, I never truly invested in Nars ones because they always creased. They were brilliant as bases though, as they are quite thick and sticky in comparison to other formulas but worn on their own; they didn’t quite do it for me. I spotted one of their newest […]
I have already expressed a love for Top Shop nail polishes! I was gifted these two extremely bright nail polishes from the range to try. How bright are these? Make a change from winter reds I guess! The shades are Marine Scene, a bright blue and Jewel in the Crown, a teal. I find the […]
Another Tony Moly Nail Polish! They have yet another small series of colours called neon, which consists of a neon pink, neon blue and this neon orange/coral. I love a tacky neon polish! This orange is no where near as bright as I expected though! It isn’t muted, don’t get me wrong! But it isn’t […]
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 She allegedly said that she thought she could buy it “on the plane” which at that point she presented me with some out of date Turkish Delight instead.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 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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.
