Sinful Colors Professional Nail Polish Review

Whilst wondering around in Boots I was excited to see a new stand of nail polishes with a huge £1.99 sign. Sinful Colors is an American brand and that is why the polishes are really cheap but very good quality. They are also slightly larger than 'normal' brand such as Barry M, which have 10ml of product, whereas Sinful Colors have 15ml. I bought two colours, Hazard and Pistache.



Hazard is a bright orange/coral which is my go to colour in the summer. 



I chose Pistache which is a gorgeous light green. I am quite pleased about how it looks on me, as I wasn't sure if a light green would compliment my skin tone. As you can see from the pictures they are super glossy and I didn't feel the need to wear top coat. They have a really expensive feel and I will be buying more as they have a great colour range.

Crazy Lipstick Lady?

Having lots of lipsticks is not as fun as it seems. Yes, I hear you screaming out in horror why?  First of all it is a very expensive habit, it might not seem like you're spending much when you spend five or ten pounds in Boots and Superdrug every other week or so on lipstick, but when it all adds up you realise you have a serious problem. I definitely am a crazy lipstick lady! Another issue I have some mornings is not being able to decide on one colour, I stare at my lip products then choose one, decide it doesn't look right, wipe it off on my sleeve, choose another one and so on... Obviously I am not saying lipstick is a terrible thing because once I have worn some it completes my makeup look and makes me feel more confident to face the day.

Anyway I picked up this Sleek True Colour lipstick recently from Superdrug as part of a 3 for 2 offer. I went for the shade Mystic, which is a vibrant pinky purple as it's a super funky colour and I don't have many purples. This was definitely an exciting purchase for me as I dropped everything as soon as I stepped into my house and ran to try it on. And I was not disappointed. The formula is really moisturising as it contains Vitamin E and the colour is very pigmented as you get the exact colour on your lips as the colour of the lipstick in the tube. Sometimes I find that lipsticks don't look the same worn as they appear due to the pigmentation of my lips. It has decent staying power but needs reapplying after about 3 hours or after eating/drinking.
