Soap and Glory "Tricks of the Shade" Review


Today I'll be reviewing the Soap and Glory "Tricks of the Shade" Eye Palette for you!

This eye palette comes with a double ended brush and a "Supercat" liquid black eyeliner pen. I love Soap and Glory packaging on a whole with its vintage pictures and quirky sayings. This particular palette is in a strong cardboard case which includes a very large mirror on the inside. Its not really travel friendly (e.g. can't throw it in your handbag) however at home or if travelling for a long time, the mirror is perfect.

I like the eye liner pen. I use it when I've put on eye shadow and don't want eye shadow all over my normal eye liner. It's a jet black and the pen makes it very easy to apply, especially as I'm really liking winged eye liner again

 My favourite shades have to be Wild Blue, Dandy Plum and Minky.
However I do have some criticism of this shades. I find that the colours aren't highly pigmented meaning you have to put on quite a lot for them to show. I prefer using my own brush as the brush supplied tends to eat the eye shadow so you're having to use even more.
I think they'd work a lot better with a primer which I didn't use when I wore them.

I would recommend this palette to anyone who has the patience to build up the colours as they really are gorgeous shades.

NYC Nail Polish Review


With Spring coming in, I've been looking at some new shades of nail polish colours to fuel my addiction! It seems that pastel colours are going to be in which I really love!

I was on the hunt for a mint, a baby pink and a lilac to add to my collection. I found NYC's Expert Last Nail Polish in Mint Macaroon and instantly fell in love with it. Mint macaroon is exactly as its described a lovely pastel green. Its got no shimmer or any of that jazz but I liked that it looks very glossy and opaque after about 3 coats. At first I put two on which would be sufficient but I added a third to get the flawless and glossy look. It also dried quickly which I always like in a nail varnish.

I've only just put it on but if it's anything like other NYC nail varnishes then it should stay on quite well. Before this colour I had on NYC's In a New York Minute in Lincoln Square Lavender and that stayed on really well, taking at least a week before my nails even began to chip.

I've included a picture of it on my nails above. I apologise for the bad quality. However I'd highly recommend this nail varnish!
