Quickie Post: Rimmel Space Dust - Total Eclipse and Moonwalking

Hey all!

I'm just going to show you the photos for these as I have tried to write this post a few times and I keep failing.

Total Eclipse is a black based texture with green shimmer/glitter. In the bottle it shows a green/blue/purple duochrome shift, but it is only visable at extreme angles with top coat applied. Formula was good at 2 coats and only required 1 layer of top coat for a smooth gloss finish. I prefer this with topcoat.







Moonwalking is a light purple texture with small and chunky silver glitter. I love the colour on this, very soft. Application was a breeze at 2 coats, this one required 2 coats of top coat to smooth out (no photo). This is a 100% dupe for Pretty Serious Cosmic Comet, the post can be seen here.

Review: Powder Perfect - Four Poster Bed

Hey all!

Today I have the first polish released from the Abandoned Mansions collection by Powder Perfect. Oh em gee, I am going to use the description directly from the website for this one!

Four Poster Bed is a deep jelly polish filled with matte purple, gold and caramel glitters, to name but a few! This is a dream polish for me! Plum base, packed with gorgeous purple and caramel glitter. Caramel glitter! Why does no one use it more! It is a favourite of mine, so beautiful.

Photos below are 2 coats, with 2 coats Poshe top coat. Check out the macro!





If this is how beautiful the first polish from this collection is, I cannot wait to see what the rest will be like!

Four Poster Bed is a part of the Abandoned Mansion collection from Powder Perfect and can be purchased from their website for $10 for a 12ml bottle. Be sure to follow them on Facebook to stay updated!

Review: Powder Perfect Valentines Day Duo

Hey all!

A few weeks back I made my first polish purchase of the year and it was from Powder Perfect, a wonderful Aussie Indie line from Toowoomba in Queensland. The owner, Jacinta, kindly sent along her Valentines Day duo for review with my order.

Now, if you where reading my blog this time last year, you will know how much I am not a fan of V-day, so I was a little concerned that the polishes I was going to receive where going to be your typical V-day inspired polishes, but I had a quick look at the polishes online before I received them and was very presently surprised at what I saw! So let's get onto it!




First in the duo is the gorgeous Lovers Lost. A BLUE! How groundbreaking is this! Haha I was well impressed with the colour and the polish, a lovely slightly dusky but vibrant blue, very close to Illamasqua Force and perfectly opaque in 2 coats as shown, with 1 coat Ulta3 Clear top coat. This polish was actually made as the base colour for the next polish in the duo!





Jar of Hearts, WOW! There is so much going on in this polish, and I must say I was in love! I am not even going to try and describe what is in this one other than black and magenta hearts, a tonne of multiple types of holo glitter and a few others in pale blue and purple. I used 2 dabbed coats for this, but 1 would be sufficient and 1 thick coat of Poshe top coat. I put a video of this up on Instagram, so you need to go look and check it out.

Final verdict on these 2 polishes, colour me impressed! A Valentines Day duo that is outside the box, love.

Powder Perfect polish can be purchased from their website for $10 for a 12ml bottle. Be sure to follow them on Facebook to stay updated!

Swatch and Review: Pretty Serious They Came From Beyond Space part II!

Hey all!

Another big post for you today, Kaz from Pretty Serious Cosmetics was kind enough to send me the entire collection of the recently released They Came From Beyond Space part II! What is unique about this collection is that they are all textures, something that we haven't seen from a boutique brand yet, and these where among my first texture polishes and I can say I am a convert!

This is a huge post so grab a drink, get comfy and look beyond the cut.
