Swatch: Ciaté Paint Pots - Wait Until Dark


I hadn't tried any by Ciaté before but the formula seems to be lovely and opaque, the brush handle seems to be a bit longer than the average polish but nothing you can't work with. The bottle has a cute bow which is a nice touch, also has a curved shaped bottle.

Review: Maybelline - Lasting Drama Eyeliner 24H

 


I think this was the first gel liner easily available in UK stores, its currently £7.99 in Boots and as it claims it is a gel / cream consistency.

 

The black is deeply pigmented and it does last. Haven't tested it out for 24 hours but at 20 hours it was still in place. With a primer this doesn't transfer but without one it does a little bit, but this is a problem I often have with eye liners. Stays put on the waterline well. 


You get a eyeliner brush which is flexible but firm enough for lining. Its flattened so you can easily do fine or thick lines.

Review: Sleek - Original Palette

sleek-idivine-eyeshadow-palette-original

By the name of the palette I'd guess this is the first one which came out. As with the other two palettes I have (Bad Girl, Storm) the black (1) is exceptionally pigmented and needs a special mention.

There are 11 shimmer shadows and one matte, being the black (1). All of these are nicely pigmented and really transfer well from pan to eyelid.

Review: Nakomi Stamping Plate M55

It arrived with a protective plastic layer and was in its own plastic packaging.


The plate has a blue toned clear sticker which is useful as in the past other plates I had tried have had clear ones which make it a little harder to tell if you have removed it or not.

I got this card for my birthday. Fun and a little different from the usual cupcake nail art.

Swatch: Sleek Pout Paints

Its 3 for 2 at the moment in Superdrug and its supposed to be on the Sleek website but they do seem to be having issues with sagepay.

Swatch: Eyeko - Vampira Polish

Think it is quite similar to Lippmann's Razzle Dazzle but a lot cheaper as that is $18!

Not quite a French, trying out something Lara suggested about making nails look longer than they are, something to do with the angles.
