I must confess, this is a brand I have really started to warm up to lately. I’m a little bit obsessed with their lipsticks (see my previous post), and in addition, I also think I’m in love their other products. Yardley really is starting to up its game with a great selection of make-up.
Yardley Stay Fast Diamond Gloss
This is a really great, affordable nail varnish with a very high gloss that protects and lasts. The clear colour can be used as a top or bottom coat while the colour (loving it for winter) is called Plum Seduction. I so often get asked ‘how do you make your nail varnish last so well?’ – and it really is as simple as cleaning the nail with acetone so it’s oil free, using a good base coat and finishing off with a good top coat. So few ladies actually commit to the whole process, but I promise, it pays off and stays on!
Yardley Stayfast Velvet Quad Eyeshadow in Copper Gleam
I thought the copper gleam was such a great colour selection, giving you the option between matte shadows as well as shimmer shadows. The colour combo of this particular quad really does make for the perfect bronzed eye – transform from a subtle day look to a statement evening look in a matter of minutes. You can even use this palette as a slight, bronzed sheen on the cheeks (much like I use my Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick), just be sure to use a big brush and shake off any excess.
