Accessorize Paparazzi

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.

    Sounds great, I have a green shade I still need to try. I’ll need to pick up some of their blushers and bronzers too, they look so pretty in pics I’ve seen.

    Sheenie, they have a good range of colours already IMO. The quality is great. Pigmentation is excellent. £4 for 10ml is still only £8 for 20ml!

    I have quite a few and the Illusion polishes are punching way above their weight! A really great new polish!

    That colour is gorgeous. I love purple polish, but it’s not unique enough to make me buy it, I need to cut down!

    This shade is electric! The eyeshadows and nail polish are my favorite items from Accessorize. I am impressed with what they have come out with so far.

    Jen, the choice of colours are great except I have so many it makes it difficult to select one that I don’t have. Have you tried the glitter ones and if so, what are they like?

    Thank you, everyone for your comments. It’s an amazing purple – probably my favourite out of all the purples I have.

    This is a pretty purple. Nice that it’s a great polish and a decent price. So hard to resist them!
