We are probably the last beauty blog to give Accessorize’s cosmetic range a go. It’s a collection exclusive to Superdrug but also available online through Accessorize. The outstanding thing about Accessorize is they’re not just another high street name jumping on the make-up bandwagon with a mediocre range. The quality is impressive but even more glowing are the prices.
Nail polishes and pressed eye shadows are only £4, of which I picked up a few. One of them was this nail lacquer by the name of Paparazzi from its Rock Star collection. It’s a deeply luscious purple glitter shade. A high gloss finish, it applies fantastically well and looks amazing. The polish is highly pigmented and opaque in one coat although I went for two for good measure.
Their nail polish bottles are small (10ml) but sufficient enough for adequate applications. Sometimes larger bottles are seen as a waste if you’re not going to use them often and of course they cost twice as much. I know I’ve had to shake and roll the bottles of so many of my nail polishes which have separated as well.
As purple polishes go, this is one of the best I’ve used in terms of wear, ease of application and appearance. I only hope Accessorize will catch on and bring out more colours.
