Make Up Store – Nail polish in Anders

Hello guys,

Before I start my review I want to remind you to like my Facebook page, so that I will host an awesome Giveaway. I only have 2 likes left to get 100 likes overall :D. Thank you for your Love and Support xoxo

So a while ago,I treated myself to some of the Make up store’s fabulous products at the Launch of the New Dean Gera’s hair salon Launch. One of them is this lovely dark blue sparkly colour called Anders. This product was part of our goodie bag and I am more than happy that I got this beautiful dark blue polish. I simply love dark colored nail polishes as I believe they are the prefect colors to wear for winter. This product is also in my November Favorited which you can check out here.

Pros:

  • Like all Make up store nail polishes, they come in these sleek transparent bottle with a black matte tap and it contain 8ml of products.
  • This particular colour is from their sparkling range which is this deep blue with sparkly undertones. I love this colour because it it is very wearable, even if it has that “sparkling” factor it doesn’t look childish or our of context if you wear it for work for example.
  • It has a very good pigmentation which you can achieve with one coat but I always ops for a second coat.
  • The staying power of this polish is amazing, it started chipping slightly after 5 days of wear.
  • It retails for about 10.99 euro which is a pretty decent price, not too pricey but not cheap either

Cons:

  • The application was a little bit messy for me, the texture is a little bit too tick but I imagine it because of the sparkly undertones.
  • It does not dry like their usual glossy polishes, it actually dries in a matte way so I did have to apply a top coat on it to achieve the result I wanted.

Will I ever buy this product again? I do have to admit, I fell in love with this colour so I might buy it again, however I’m pretty positive i’ll try some of their other polishes. 

Do I recommend this product? Yes definitely, it a pretty good polish none the less, check their nail polished at their Shop at the Point Shopping Complex – 2 Sliema.

Make Up Store – Microshadow in Matte White

Hey guys,

I wish you all a Happy Halloween, in Malta we don’t actually celebrate it like most foreign countries but it is slowly being part of our yearly calender too.  There are a few children which dress up and trick or treat and there are many adults which dress up go to Halloween parties  but that is pretty much it. I think it’s a fun tradition and we should incorporate it in our Mediterranean society. Today unfortunately I don’t have another Halloween look for you guys but I do have a great review for a pretty good product.

On my last visit to the Make-up store, I got quite a couple of products from there and the one I will review today is the Michroshadow in matte White. I already have another Michroshadow in a shimmery white colour, which I love and have been using for a lot of my make up looks. These shadows retail for about €13, which is quite pricey for a single eye-shadow but they are worth every penny.

Pros:

  • Very pigmented, which you can view clearly as I swatched this shadow.
  • The packaging is very sleek, it comes with thick black plastic and a clear lid on top. I love how you can remove the lid in various ways, you can either remove it completely or pulling it upwards and it can be clipped on back easily.
  • It has a good longevity, it stay on the lids for a good amount of time, without a primer it will probably last up to 4hrs but with a good primer it will last up-to 8hrs.
  • Easy to apply and blend
  • It has a generous amount of product, I have been using the other microshadow for more than 9 months and I haven’t seen the end of it yet, and I use it a lot.

W3

Cons:

  •  To be honest I don’t have a particular con for this shadow, just that try to be careful not to break the plastic lid. I broke my other eye-shadow plastic lid and I cannot carry the shadow on it’s own unfortunately.
  • The price of this shadow can be seen as expensive for some but it is worth every penny as it will last you for a long time.

 

Will I ever buy this product again? Definitely, If I will ever run out of this colour I will repurchase for sure, and will  buy more in various colours.

Do I recommend it? I recommend it to anyone, they are really great and worth every penny
