I have a special place in my heart for both Barry M and Superdrug. I remember my early teens when friends were starting to get into makeup and I just wasn’t feeling it, in fact it’s only now that I’m 28 that I’ve started playing around with eyeshadow. Back then though I relied on nail polish (of course), mascara, and on special occasions my Barry M pale pink Dazzle Dust in shade number 1 that I bought from the Clumber Street store in Nottingham. It must be 15 years ago now, and I still have it (shush all you makeup crazies who believe in chucking makeup out after five minutes, I don’t use it I just can’t bear to let go). Anyway, Superdrug are turning 50! I had absolutely no idea they’d been around that long, but I think celebrating with limited edition products with various brands is a great idea. An LE Barry M? Count me in!
I do have a fondness for Australian indies, so I’m pretty chuffed to be able to show you Powder Perfect’s latest collection ‘Abandoned Mansion’, a collection of cremes, holos and glitters inspired by the ethereal and, sometimes, desolate imagery that has been prevalent in every TV show and book that captured the attention of Jacinta, the creator of Powder Perfect.
You might already know of my love for ‘Steel Town Girl’, the older sister polish of ‘These Broken Wings’. It’s a beautiful topper, so when this lovely came out I was first in line.
Today I have the first of three posts featuring new Rimmel nail polishes. There’s the Sweetie Crush textured polishes, Rita Ora brights and these Rita Ora pastel shades.
