OK: These; my Chanel duo cake liner; and my Murad Blemish Kit, are my top beauty discoveries this year. They rank alongside forerunners Sweet Sienna pigment, Jewel Blue eyeshadow and those Chanel artist's gouaches that I adore. So, if not quite in the elite league of my beloved Double Wear foundation or Lancome effacernes, they are nonetheless BIG NEWS!!!
These are selling out fast, and unfortunately for me (well, typically) my prized colour choices are all limited edition. Some of the permanent ones, notably the dark navy, are stunning and will definitely warrant my full attention when I come back in the hope for more. I do not really 'get' why or how they made these arbitrary decisions to abort certain colours and stay on with others. Indeed, there are no signs instore as to which are perm and which are LE. And my SA said that Lilac Petals was perm, yet Hele's blog post said she was told LE. Aaargh why can't sales assistants be as geeky and obsessed as us and KNOW these things!!?? It's infuriating!
OK anyway on with the review... you might have guessed it will be positive....
These come in 10 colours, so you are sure to find at least a handful that you love. They come in a pretty jar which unlike a paint pot, shuts securely enough not to let a ton of air in. They are the same size amount as pp and virtually the same price point.
The colours are vivid, take minimal effort to apply and act as fantastic bases. EL DW is like a quality seal to me: the whole DW range lives up to its promise! Unlike a paintpot, these really adhered to my lid, more like a paint than a stodgy cream paintpot. EL suggests these are crease resistant for 15 hours... I would say 12 easily for me, perhaps London's Tube adds several hours worth within each half hour journey, that's quite plausible.
I highly recommend these!!! Especially the gorgeous shades I got:
Silver Leaf - A taupey dream come true: like Sweet Sienna in a paste, HEAVEN!!
Sea Mist - An unbelievably true turquoise green, pure unadulterated beauty in a paste, HEAVEN!!
Lilac Petals - A pure extremely pretty true lilac with just enough pink to keep it innocent and girly, yet just enough purple to make it anything but bland. Yes, that one's HEAVEN TOO!!
My camera is unjust to these beauties so I am nicking some pics which speak of their glory. Nevertheless, I would urge you to check these out in person!!
...what are your latest beauty discoveries???
