I’m having a love affair with lilac nails at the moment – I love them, and I seem to be on a personal mission to collect every variation of the shade available out there. I already have Lilac Pastel from Revlon – but I can’t seem to find it so I was tweeting about this (it was very frustrating). So after my tweeting away, I was contacted by the PR for Stargazer – the make up brand available in New Look stores – saying they had a great lilac that I might like.
I’m going to be honest – I have a very mixed impression of Stargazer – they have some lovely nail colours, but the polishes absolutely stink. It’s honestly like they contain every chemical known to man. Plus every time I see them in store the collection looks pretty poorly stocked with clearly the ‘leftover’ shades left (neons, green, yellows…). It might just be the New Look stores I have been to, but I haven’t once seen any of the good shades that I know the brand has available?! So whilst I have seen the range has some good colours it just doesn’t seem to come across when I see the brand from a customer perspective in store.
I also picked up Barry M Berry Ice Cream on Friday – and will be comparing the two shortly. First impressions are that the Stargazer is slightly more pink toned than the Barry M.
Anyway, love this colour and it got lots of compliments! I have a couple more from the brand to try but in the meantime would love to know a couple of things…
1: What are your experiences of stargazer stands in Newlook? Seen anything that looks good or are the stands unimpressive?
2: Any suggestions for other lilac shades that are worth picking up? (already on the list… Essie Lilacism and OPI Do you Lilac It?)
