I love this look of this collection, and it’s one that conjured up certain looks in my mind. Of course when I came to translating the images in my head onto my face using these products it all went wrong but in the right hands you could create something wonderful. In particular I was thinking of something from the Blink 182 I Miss You video (and strangely, more the men in the band than the female models!). If you haven’t seen that video you can find it here!
I digress! Let me take you through what’s in the collection.
First of all there are two Stay Perfect Nail Colours in In the Stars and Moonlit Shadow (£6 each).
Moonlit Shadow is a sort of bronzey gold shimmer shade. And I’d like to have show you how it looks but as you’ll see my polish was solid. Never had that before!
Moonlit Shadow is beautiful! You can either wear it alone or as a top coat. In the swatch photograph all fingers have one coat except for the little finger which has two to show you how it builds up. Unofrtunately I didn’t capture the blue shimmer on my nails but luckily you can see it well enough in the bottle!
Also in the collection are two new High Shine Lip Crayons (£9) in Romantic Soul and Sultry Kiss.
Both are lovely. They feel moisturising and are lightly glossy, I wouldn’t call them high shine, but I prefer them to be lightly glossy personally. Both shades are lovely but I prefer Sultry Kiss, the darker of the two, for a wearable take on berry lips. Perfect for Autumn. (swatches a little further down the post).
Finally there’s a Stay Perfect Duo Eye Shadow in Seductive Charm (£8).
These colours are just perfect for me. They are totally cool (man), by which I mean they are not warm colours. And I love them for that. The formula is really beautiful and the darker shade has the most beautiful shimmer. It’s not a shimmery shadow though, it’s a satin finish interspersed with tiny particles of shimmer. I didn’t experience any fallout and the wear time was excellent. I really love these and considering you’ve only got two colours to work with you can actually create quite a few different looks. This is absolutely my top pick of the collection and if you only buy one thing from this collection, grab these shadows, they are lovely.
So for your reference here are swatches of the Eye Shadows and Lip Crayons. The top Lip Crayon is Romantic Soul and the lower one is Sultry Kiss.
Of course not collection post is complete on Lady of the Lane without a badly posed selfie to finish it all off! With the change of the season and bad weather it’s getting harder to take any decent photographs But her I am wearing the Eye Shadow Duo and the High Shine Intense Lip Crayon in Romantic Soul.
The collection is online now and available from Boots!
