Ted Baker – Sweet On You Nail Duo

Ted Baker – Sweet On You Nail Duo

This Sweet On You Nail Duo from Ted Baker was a birthday gift from a good friend way back in March. The two nail polishes come packaged in a cute little box designed to look like an old fashioned sweet shop. The first polish is called Sweet On You and it’s a lovely peachy pink colour which looks really glossy when used on its own – take a look at the top photo, you can see how shiny it is and I haven’t even used a top coat. It only needs a couple of coats for a good coverage and applies really easily although the brush is very thin and the lid is quite big so it’s a bit tricky to apply it carefully and needs patience. The second polish is called Champagne Sundays and it’s a dusky rose coloured glitter suspended in a clear polish. There are two sizes of glitter – large hexagons and tiny flecks – both the same colour. You can either use Champagne Sundays...

Burts Bees – Lip Shimmer in Champagne

Burts Bees – Lip Shimmer in Champagne

I had been lusting after this Burts Bees Lip Shimmer in Champagne for ages, ever since I reviewed their Lip Shimmer in pink Guava last Summer (you can read that review here). Although I really liked the pink Guava one I felt that the more neutral Champagne shade would suit me better, so I decided to ‘invest’! Burts Bees is one of my favourite brands for lip care products, they strive to produce 100% natural beauty products and they also do a lot of work to help protect bees, given that a lot of their products contain beeswax. In my opinion a lot of natural beauty brands scrimp on their packaging design and end up looking a bit down-market. Not Burts Bees! I just love their packaging in eye-catching yellow and red, with just a touch of the traditional about it. This little lip shimmer comes in a twist-up bullet formation (although it does not twist back down which is a bit annoying) with the eye-catching Burts Bees logo on...

Emite – Micronized Eyeshadow in Spread Your Nectar

Emite – Micronized Eyeshadow in Spread Your Nectar

I received this Micronized Eyeshadow in Spread Your Nectar in my November Glossybox, but it’s just taken me a while to get round to reviewing it. It’s from Swedish brand Emite, and I’ve already reviewed their Professional Eyelash Curler here. I was initially a bit disappointed with it when I received it as the perspex window in the lid is a bit loose, although this doesn’t have a negative effect on the make-up itself. Micronized Eyeshadow is free from oil, nickel, paraben and perfume, neither is it tested on animals. Emite suggest it as an excellent choice for lens wearers or those with sensitive eyes. I’ve been doing some research into what ‘micronized’ actually means, it’s to do with the way that the particles are ground down to make the eyeshadow powder, and basically the particles in this eyeshadow have been ground down much more than particles in other eyeshadows. This means that the Micronized Eyeshadow applies smoothly to ‘create an even and fine result’. Spread Your Nectar is...
