You know those nail polishes you love? The Smith & Cult ones? Well, they have just launched a makeup collection and it is AH-MAzing! I’m not exaggerating here, it’s way up there with YSL, Bobbi and NARS.
To be honest, I wouldn’t expect anything less from the founder Dineh Mojaher who in the 90s started Hard Candy nail polishes. If you’re old enough to remember, they were the brightly coloured nail polishes sold in Harvey Nichols with the rings on them. The baby blue was the one Alicia Silverstone wore in Clueless and I was obsessed.
Hard Candy Nail Polishes
So this Diary of a Beauty Junkie collection and everything about its marketing is super glam, super lux, super sexy and cool! It’s for that crazy cool party girl who still has all her sh*t together but is still slightly unstable. She knows exactly who she is and isn’t afraid to take risks and have fun which makes her a liability. The packaging looks like someone has stepped on it with a spiked heel – so again, like the packaging, the Smith & Cult girl is shiny and polished but slightly damaged.
It’s like the Lana Del Rey of Makeup. I love it! It’s so Rock n Roll and so me!
Diary of Beauty Junkie Collection
If you get a chance to go on the website, you can see that the product descriptions have nothing to do with the shades, but are little monologues from the Smith & Cult babe who wears it (see above). Stories about getting drunk on a flight and telling your life story to a complete stranger, having OCD, and spiking your detox tea with whiskey seriously make you want to buy them.
The Book Of Eye’s Eye Quad Collection
Book of Eyes in Neautrality
Book of Eyes in Plume
These come in four different tones – Neutrality which is 4 brown/gold colours, Plume which is four plum colours, Bronzy, yeah you guessed it, bronze and smoked out which is a mixture of silvery glitter, pinks and khaki. Neutrality is my favourite but surprisingly I have been wearing No.3 Soft Shock every day. The colours are highly refined powder formulas with rich velvety pigments, metallic micro-particles and translucent shimmers to create the perfect smokey eye. They can be used wet and dry for creamy dreamy textures and they have extremely long staying power.
I have been wearing these eyeshadows for a month now and have completely ditched everything I have worn over the last few months. First of all, unlike other brands, it doesn’t irritate my skin, not even the glittery ones. The eyeshadows stay on all day, blend perfectly together and the brush that comes with it works perfectly. I have stopped using eyeliner along my outer lash line and replace it with the darker eyeshadow in this quad and it doesn’t move all day. Even after a full on Spin Class.
B-Line Eye Pen in Still Riot
I you like a cat eye, this is a product for you. This eyeliner point is so thin and black it can create the finest line or darkest and sharpest flick. It dries immediately and lasts all day, and night resisting water so you can wear when you’re out partying and it wont move. The silky matte finish and stays in place all day without smudging, flaking, or misbehaving. If you read the description on the website, it will tell you about shoving garlic in your ears and drinking Oregano. Lol!
Just believe me when I say it gets your flicks on fleek.
The Tainted Lip Stain Flatte in Mad Heat
The liquid lipstick in a dark red smells amazingly like cocoa butter. It slides onto lips because it’s a liquid and stains the lips instantly without looking over done or drying lips out. The finish is Matte but it looks and feels really soft and keeps lips hydrated as its formulated with esthers and emollients combined with a blend of skin perfecting polymers. I dabbed a little of this on my lips to stain them and finished with a lip balm for nights I don’t want to look too made up.
Nail Polish in Darjeeling Darling
Just like all of their nail polishes, this is a gorgeous Emerald Green in a glossy and rich finish. It doesn’t chip easily and looks amazing on skin, especially during the festive season.
This new makeup collection is everything. It’s Rock n Roll, its cool and edgy, it’s glam, it’s hard, its sexy, it’s fun, and it lasts all day and all night.
Buy it now, you will not be disappointed.
