This is my last post on this, I promise!
So in addition to the rather stunning Formidable! nail varnish I also picked up the following:
– Vainglorious eye shadow (frost)
– Mean and Green nail varnish
Plus in the goody bag I had:
– Magically Cool Powder in Truth and Light
I love them all so far – very boring to say, I know – but I really do. If I’m really honest I had my fingers crossed for a beauty powder in my goody bag and didn’t really think the magically cool powder would be one for me. But having had a chance to try it out, I’m completely infatuated with the powder.
It’s so baffling how it somehow manages to be a powder AND a liquid. It honestly feels like it’s some sort of magical cool liquid when applied to the skin. I used my elf brush to apply it and you dip the bush and it looks wet. Very bizarre when it looks like a powder but then turns wet… the mind boggles.
Applied, it somehow manages to be the perfect balance between a powder and a liquid. It seems to melt with the skin and create a smooth, iridescent glow – not shimmery like a Mineralise Skin Finish. Definitely more ‘glowy’. I think this is ideal for a healthy glow in the day time rather than other more shimmery or glittery product.
You have to try it to know what I mean – it feels bizarre. But fabulous.
The eyeshadow, Vainglorious is very very pretty and wearable. I’ve worn it both from daytime and night so far – it’s a warm brown, shade with a bit of purple and a hint of red. It’s a frost, so it has a sheen – but again, not too shimmery or glittery. It’s well pigmented and I like it as an all over the lid colour. I used it in the day with a bit of Virgin from the Urban Decay Naked Palette and loved the combo – it really softened it for daytime.
I’m very happy with the bits I bought on the night. I am tempted to go and buy the ‘French Quarter’ Greasepaint stick when the collection launches properly on Thursday. Mostly just for the name as I will always have a soft spot for anything New Orleans related.
So what do you think? Do you have your eye on anything from the collection?
