Swatch: ELF - Dark Navy

 

Generally ELF's nail polish is good, this navy is more black / blue. It doesn't dry as shiny as the other colours I have tried, not matte but not shiny either. Also this colour seemed to chip so much easier than the other shades I have tried. Chipped within one day which isn't so good!

Dupe Alert! Lippmann - Bad Romance

I saw this in Superdrug and I got very curious as to if this is a dupe of Deborah Lippmann's Bad Romance


Its Revlon and looks like a very close dupe to me, apparently its a new shade for A/W 2011

 

I wanted this to wear during my wedding in November and now its mine and it was just £6.49 rather than the much more expensive £14

Review: Lush - Dragons Egg Bath Ballistic


They say ~ We've cracked a new generation of Bath Ballistic. The Dragon's Egg is a mystical, powerful force of nature that will change the way you bathe. When you drop these eggs into the water, they crack open to reveal plumes of orange fizz that look like a baby dragon breathing fire as it hatches into the world.

As you bathe in the whirlpool of vibrant, fiery colour and inhale the refreshing sherbet scent of lemon and bergamot, you'll feel like you're up and away on the back of your own dragon. Popping candy pops around you, glitter swirls in shimmering circles and your bath becomes the birthing ground of a baby dragon. Well, in a way.
£2.95 - 200g

I say ~ I wasn't expecting too much from this as it was plain white in colour however as you can see the bath water did change colour. It was a slow fizzer. It did start to fizz out orange, although not much like a dragon breathing. The scent was bergamot, and the cracking though wasn't very loud of impressive.


Once all of the colour had came out and the ballistic was really small it then sort of broke apart and a bunch of gold glitter spurted out, along with a bunch of little sugar paper circles. I was surprised as I wasn't expecting it! Made for quite a chore of cleaning the bath afterwards, and the colour of the bath unappealing.


I am not a fan of glitter generally or in the bath. Had to take a shower after my bath to get off all the glitter that stuck to me which sort of defeats the object of a bath!

Would I buy it again ~ No, I don't like the glitter and the scent wasn't very potent.
