Essie Fiji dupe: L'Oreal Color Riche Nails in Opera Ballerina


Essie’s nail polishes are not that expensive anyway (£7.99 each). However, every little helps when it comes to saving pennies on our wallet. The nail polish I am talking about is L’Oreal Color Riche Nails in Opera Ballerina (£4.99 each).

It is their Spring Edition polishes (The lavender pastel blue called Nouvelle Vogue is gorgeous too! Check out my blog dedicated to all things pastel blue). This nudy pale pink colour is very pretty and soft. The brush is wide that makes application so easy and smooth. The consistency is quite sheer, I put on 3 layers to give an opaque finish.

Compare to Essie Fiji, Essie Fiji has more pink in it where Opera Ballerina is more nude and has a peachy undertone, which reflects the soft leather ballet dancing shoes (which are peachy pink, not pink-pink)
I love the L’Oreal bottle too! It is slim and compact, easy to store and product won’t be wasted! Honestly, when do you ever finish a full bottle of nail polish, ever?

While Essie polishes is £7.99 each, L’Oreal Color Riche Nails is only £4.99 per bottle.

To conclude, taking into account the packaging, the colour, the finishes and the price, I am with L’Oreal Color Riche Nails in Opera Ballerina all the way!

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce

Makeup Lego : Jouer Little Black Dress Palette

I love Lego and I love Makeup - what if there is a Lego in the makeup world....?! Jouer Cosmetics has made this dream come true, especially with the two palettes that they have: Blushing Beauty Collection and the Little Black Dress palette. A few YouTubers like Essie Button , Fleur De Force , and Ameila have talked about the Blushing Beauty Collection on their videos, but I actually prefer the Little Black Dress palette instead.
