I do love Accessorize – everything is always so pretty. And now they are bringing that same look to a make-up range. That’s right! Accessorize make-up! What’s not to love? It certainly brought squeals of delight from the Beauty Editor types at the launch. And back in my office, I had a pile of the pretty goodies on my desk and everyone who passed stopped to gasp and touch – they are that cute.
I tried an Icon Eye Shadow, R59.99, (love the butterfly overlay) that looked grey in the container but when I put it on it was a wonderful shade of … earth? It looked as if I had blended several shades of brown, green and grey – with a bit of shimmer. Totally my new favourite colour. Whatever it’s called.
I asked Tessa Mbanga to try the purple and teal eye shadows, and a few other bright lovelies as I thought they would look good on her lovely, youthful skin. Here’s what she had to say:
The other day I received goodies from Accessorize – I didn’t know they did make up as well. Not being a make-up person (just a mascara and lip-gloss lady) I was rather shocked by the eye shadow colours, R59.99, but thought I should give them a try. And what do you know … Purple Promise and Teal Tension are the business! I emphasised the colour by making it darker and more intense around the eyes. It gave a shock effect that said: ‘look at me’ but without having to wear too much make-up. Love it!Moving on to my lip-gloss and mascara, woohoo … love them. The Diamond Sparkle lip-gloss,
R89.99, not only sparkles (lol) and tastes good (like bananas) but it lasts a while (that is if you are not licking your lips all the time). Lastly, the Volumising Mascara, R59.99, in Jet Black is probably by far my favourite mascara. No mess, easy to use. It makes a difference to your eyelashes instantly – it makes them look bolder and like they have a life of their own, awesome.Accessorize you are going to become my ‘summer best friend’ totally loved the goodies.
Well, folks, there you have it. Happiness all round – from the packaging to the colouring.
