Hey ladies! Who's up for some celebratory swatches? Aliquid Lacquer sent me these babies to share with you, in celebration of her very first anniversary! There's three gorgeous polishes and a sweet-smelling lip balm, and I'm gonna show them to you one by one. Click to read my review!
Champagne Frosting lip balm, shall we? This lip balm is handmade with the utmost of care and the first thing I always do is look at the label. The ingredients are all natural, clearly spelled out in Latin AND English so you can understand what the heck it's actually saying :-p
Me and lip balms, we're not really friends... I've had a couple of rough winters with allergic reactions to lip balms and eczema on top of that... So I'm very careful with what I put on my lips. I seem to only be able to handle shea butter right now and I feel awful not being able to bring you a decent review of this lip balm. BUT! I can tell you how it smells, and it smells delicious! It's vanilla with something else... something to counteract the sweet but still keeping it girly and fresh!
Artsy is just that. It's like paint splatters on a sweater, after a busy day of setting loose your creativity. It's colorful and sweet and fun :D
The first thing I noticed as I was unpacking the polish was how well these glitters are suspended in the polish. There was no sinking at all, and all of them came out of the bottle easily and without fishing. Despite the formula being thick enough to hold the glitters up, it wasn't thick while applying the polish, so it went on smoothly and easily :D
Now, Dogged is a special one for me. It looks a lot like one of my favorite polishes, which is already strange on its own because I tend to gravitate towards bright colors. But the polish in question is a slate grey scattered holo and Dogged just reminds me of it so much, but it's brown (duhh) and it has some other surprises. The last pic shows it the best so I'll tell you later.
LOVE the polish, and the name! It just rolls off the tongue so easily, dontcha think?
Jam packed with green holo and metallic glitters, this is something I'd pick to celebrate with, yeahhh!
I thought this polish would be bumpy with all the glitters, but it actually was really smooth, I love that :D
flash giveaways on Facebook, a nail art contest on Instagram, lots of discounts and sales in the shop and ofcourse a big giveaway on the Aliquid blog! You'll be in party mood all week!
A big thanks to Alison for sending me these and trusting in me to do them justice (I hope I did!). I wish you the best second year an indie brand can have and lots and lots of love from the community!
And to my lovely readers: thanks for watching and I hope you enjoyed it!
I received all of the polishes in this article as a press sample for an honest review. Opinions expressed are 100% my own and not influenced in any way other than the quality of the product itself.
