Yardley goes the yards

Yardley Stay Fast Diamond Gloss and Stayfast Velvet Quad Eyeshadow in Copper GleamI 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.

    Yes base coat is very NB! I think that most ppl don’t purchase yardley as their design of products is rather plain compared to other competitors

    Ladies put on those Stiletto’s and get yourself to clicks, i just bought myself the Yardley loose powder for only R39.95 and they have great specials on Yardley products, i love yardley products but this is a wonderful opportunity to have yardley products for less.

    Yardley always has such nice products at really good price. The Plum Seduction Nail Varnish looks soooo nice and I really like the colours of the Quad Eyeshadow.

    Happy to see that they have modernized their packaging a bit. It always seemed so ‘old’.
