Summer at Accessorize

It's quite a bright, playful and light-hearted summer at Accessorize make-up.

As usual, their packaging is fantastic and always lives up to their name. Below is their Eye shadow palette in Paradise and would make such a lovely present for someone.

It opens to reveal four colourful shades of blues and yellows. They are not very pigmented and are pretty sheer. They have concentrated on the concept of a wash of colour in my opinion, keeping in line with the current weather.

I have tried an eye shadow palette from them before and it was intensely pigmented, so I can see no reason why this wouldn't be unless they have intended to keep it like that.

I tried to create a little something for you guys so you have an idea as to how the colours translate onto the lids and they are quite pretty actually. 

I am not brave to sport bright blues outside home hence I am glad these incline slightly towards the pastel side. 

The nail paints on the other hand are all equally pretty and superbly pigmented. Well nails cannot be sheer right? They have to have a burst of colour for the summer and these provide just that.

Below we have Zesty Orange, Sugar Plum and Sunny Days

Zesty Orange and Sugar Plum give an opaque finish in one coat, whereas Sunny Days is slightly sheer and needs two coats. 

I have to say, this is the most sophisticated yellow nail paint I've ever come across. It's quite soft and pastel hence pleasant to the eye and pretty wearable. 

Being a girly girl however, Sugar Plum is the prettiest plum nail paint I currently own. It gives a beautiful coverage in one go and finishes off with a glossy finish. Love it! 

Have you been liking something from Accessorize lately?

I am yet to try accessorize makeup, these nail varnishes look lovely and i'd also like to try some of the blushes, so I must go to superdrug when im next out and pick some up.

Lol I've got a clutch from Accessorize with the same color combo and similar detailing as the casing of the palette! The nail paints look great! How long do these last before starting to chip off? Contemplating on getting Sugar Plum,pretty shade!
