NYX Cosmetics reduced at Secret Sales
Friday, February 4th, 2011

Beauty bloggers in the USA love a bit of NYX, a brand that specialises in highly pigmented eyeshadows and the occasional MAC dupe. But the products can be nigh-on impossible to find in the UK. I remember picking up a 3 colour palette in Fenwicks about five years ago, but other than that I’ve not really seen them.

Luckily, now they *are* available, and at hugely discounted prices. But only until next Wednesday. Secret Sales is running a, er, Secret Sale on various items from the range. You’ll need to register to see what’s on offer, but just to whet your appetite, here are a few of the bargains.

10 shade For Your Eyes Only palettes (RRP £10.50) – £7
5 shade Glitter Cream palettes (RRP £8.50) – £5.95
Chrome Eyeshadow Pigments (RRP £5) – £2
Fabulous Lashes false eyelashes (RRP 6.50) – £3

Nailed it: Essie Turquoise and Caicos
Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

I don’t think any nail polish I’ve ever worn has elicited the reaction I got when I tried Essie’s Turquoise and Caicos, a polish from their 2010 Resort Collection. People couldn’t stop talking about it!

Touted by some as a more accessible alternative to Chanel’s sell-out must have Jade polish (I think it’s slightly bluer), this is a super-glossy tropical green with a slightly transparent feel. It’s not a colour I would usually wear on my nails, but I absolutely love it! Somehow it works even on short nails, and the formula is gorgeous to work with.

I’d forgotten how much I love Essie polishes, but they’ve really mastered a super-glossy, plastic shine that lasts and lasts. You’ll need three generous coats of this to get a decent opaque finish (even then it may look slightly see-through in natural light) but with a good topcoat I found the polish lasted for at least three days without any signs of chipping, which is far longer than most I’ve tried.
