What Are They?

Glitter gel eyeliners to add a bit of sparkle to your look.

 

The Review:

I originally bought the silver colour for my auntie as she was going to a silver themed party. As she didn’t use it, she gave it back to me so I decided to put it on over the liner I already had and it looked so pretty!

The first thing I noticed is the nice, fine brush on the applicator, it made applying the product easy and went on nice and neatly. The second thing I noticed was how pigmented the liner was.

My past experiences with other high street brands of glitter liners have not been very positive as I find that you get a lot of clear gel liner and perhaps a few specs of glitter – hardly the lovely solid glitter line you buy the product for.

These liners however, are beautifully pigmented and give you the full line of glitter. Not only this but it lasts a long time too and after wearing it a few more times, it easily lasts a good 6/7 hours on me.

Anything past that I cannot comment on as I haven’t worn it for longer but it looked exactly same as when first applied after that length of time, AND, without any glittery fallout falling onto my face.

The colour range is great and I now have 4 shades, a silver (Hustle) , a gold (Funk), a black and silver (Rock Chick) and a bright purpley blue (Shake It Up!).

Here are the colours swatched for you

Worth the Money?

These retail for an amazing £2.99 each and are readily available on the highstreet in places like Superdrug and Boots.

If you ask me, these are an absolute bargain and so pretty on the eyes.  Affordable, gorgeous, readily available and an excellent shade range – what’s not to like?

You can also find these dazzling liners on the Collection website:

Accessorize 3D Glitter Polish

 

What are they?

These are glitter nail polishes that come in a good range of colours. They contained small, finely milled glitter and some larger glitter in a different colour.

The Review

The colour I have is called Dream and is a gorgeous bright medium blue with bigger chunks of purple glitter. After 2 coats the colour was even and solid, after 3 it looked amazing!

Now three coats may seem like a lot but I did 3 thin coats and the joy of this polish is that it dries VERY quickly. A good even coverage can easily be achieved with just 2.

My gorgeous blue glitter mani lasted me a whole week without chipping (I used Sally Hansen’s Double Duty Strengthening Base and Top coat) which I thought was brilliant.

Here’s what it looks like on my nails :

 

Worth the Money?

All polishes by Accessorize are £4 each which I feel is a real bargain! These are definitely a good purchase if you love the glitter polishes by OPI and alike but refuse to pay the price tag of around the £10 mark for a single polish.

A wide variety of colours are available and the price is great for the quality of the product.

These are available from Accessorize shops and online.
