Mmmh, pt. 1, yeah, because I had to split my latest buyings in two posts, and it's NOT a good thing, I suppose.
Anyway, at least I didn't buy them all at once :^P
- Layla n. 177, a pastel rainbow in a bottle.
- Nouba n. 469, metallic blue/purple (even green) = *_______________*
Ok, first two were an obvious instant love, and I think you can see why... Despite thier price, which for me it's a little on the high side: around €7 for that ooOold Layla and less than €5 for that mini Nouba (7ml).
Details of each colour:
I know, this could be a streaky mess, BUT I tried it over a light colour and seems to work well.
I'm curious to try it on its own too... I love all these colours though <3
What about Nouba?
Then, a new brand reveals in Italy (at least, here in Milan :D ), for all the italian readers, this is the OVS makeup brand.
Selection of colours isn't that original, but it's quite large and it includes some interesting shades and finishes, I chose three:
- the blue/teal one is n. 740;
- the green one, n, 745;
- purple/gold, n. 620. This is NOT a dupe of Deborah n. 60, Kiko n. 354, etc, because golden flecks aren't as big, and purple base is much more cooler.
I remember I did a comparison, but I can't find the bottle cap... Maybe I've just imagined it.
These are a true bargain, €1,99 for 5ml. Glassflecks <3
Next, Crystallized TE by Essence, I just picked these two, which have the most interesting shimmer in my opinion:
- Left, n. 03 "Ice Age Reloaded";
- right, n. 04, "Ice Eyes Baby" (lol).
Unfortunately, sun is on holiday, so I couldn't show properly the colour of shimmers, but I think you can notice the gold/lilac microglitters in the blue one; "Ice Age Reloaded" is a medium carnation pink with a light bronze reflect.
Don't know why, but I liked them.
Lastly, a collection of fluos I don't want to use on nails, but... on jewels :>
From left to right: n. 06 "Yellow", n. 09 "Pink", n. 05 "Green", n. 03 "Fuchsia", n. 01 "Jade" (which isn't fluo, lol).
There are other few colours, such as a blue, an orange, a "tropical" one (a pastel mix of yellow and orange)...
These are from Debby, the "young" division of Deborah.
€3,90 each (7,5ml), they came out just when I needed them! Fluo nailpolishes are rare here in Italy (aka, never seen one in a store...), and I wasn't convinced to buy them online.
Odd story: short before I found these, Deborah released a collection of fluo shades in its Prêt à Porter range, which are intended for artificial nails only (they stain so much?).
Layla too has a similar collection, I saw it in person and it' so blindly bright even if they're all shades of pink: I don't wanna know what they put in them, must be liquified neon cancer :D
Anyway, these Deborah Prêt à Porter fluos are at least €3,90 (often €4,90) for 4,5ml; Debby fluos are same price for 7,5ml, but... Deborah = Debby: where's the trick? I'm confused.
And Debby offers more colours, while Prêt à Porter fluos are just five shades.
I'm not a marketing expert, but wth?
Enough for the first part, don't you think? :>
Have a nice day/night/whatever and thanks for your attention ;¬)
