Hello people! How are you today? I made pancakes today and they were yummy! Anything is yummy in the morning when you're starving. For my sister's 17th birthday I got her some nail polishes (two peas in a nail polish pod). One of them was Barry M's matte nail polish in a deep red shade and Max Factor's Fantasy Fire (enough with the Nfu-Oh 51 rip offs girl!). And of course once I saw how good it looked I went back to get one for myself. I got mine in Mocha for €5.99.
Mocha is such a unique colour that I don't have in my collection (or my sister's collection). It's a pink toned cappuccino taupe-y colour. If that made any sense. As you can see the finish isn't a true matte colour; I'd pegged it as more of a satin finish. Equally unique I think. After I applied I waited ten minutes, it wasn't getting any matter. I've yet to see a 'drugstore' nail colour in Ireland that's a true matte. But there is a wide range of matte top coats though. I really like this polish; I've seem to forgotten how wonderfully these apply. The brush is a classic thin brush which I prefer because some brushes are too big for my pinkies and it gives you much more control. The formula is also a dream. None too runny and none too thick. Just right!
Continue for more swatches and see how it looks with a topcoat!
And I know you're curious as to what it looks like with a topcoat
Thanks for sticking around and reading this! Please tell me what you think in the comments! Good day/afternoon/evening to you.
G'day everyone, I hope everything is going along well. I'm in the middle of my exams and its going well. Today I have for you the Catrice All Round Concealer Palette. I'd been on the fence about buying it, since it just seemed a bit to gimmicky and my foundation seemed to cover up most of my flaw(less imperfections). But then I caved... badly.
It just looked too good and so I forked over €3.99 to buy it. Sure why not?! Up next are the swatches.
Good Morn/Aftie/Evening, I hope you're doing fabulous! I'm really just lazing about today and watching some Walking Dead episodes. So good. Norman Reedus is too beautiful to be in a zombie apocalypse. Today I have a lipliner from NYX.
I was in the store trying to guesstimate what colour would be a good match for my natural lips. I ended up getting two shades: the Pale Pink and the Peekaboo Neutral. The first shade is the one we're talking about today. It doesn't match me but it provides a wonderful natural highlight to my lips; I can place this on the centre of my lips and blend it out for a more fuller looking lip.
It's this lovely pinky beige with almost lilac undertones. It sharpens ever so beautifully with my faithful Essence sharpener (which you should totally buy since it's a clear dupe for the UD Grindhouse). The texture is very workable but not so creamy that I feel it's going to slide off me. It provides a very solid, almost tacky base for a lips…
Hi, good morning, afternoon, evening, wherever you care. I bought the IsaDora Graffiti Nail Topcoat (gasp, pant,wheeze) when I saw a stand that had 70% off everything. It originally costed €7.95 and I got it for €2.
I chose to put it over Barry M's Matte Nail Paint in Rhossili because I thought the look of matte on matte would look cool. It's a neutral brown crackle polish that could easily be mistaken for black from afar.
The formula is very thin which is why there are more vertical crackles. I'm more partial to the thicker formula which gives more chunky crackles. But I always think it's easier to have thin nail polish that will thicken up over time. The crackles formed very quick (within 5 seconds of it going on dry polish) so you don't worry about denting the polish while waiting for it to dry. That's probably due to the thinner formula.
Something I have noticed is that the longer you have the crackle effect the more it wears. By that I mean the crackles b…
