Deborah Lippmann 80's Rewind Collection: Eyes

Sunday, May 11, 2014

Hi!

Oops, another week has gone by with no posts :( It's been super busy, with finals and AP tests coming up! But I'm scheduling 4 posts for the next couple of weeks so no matter how busy things get, the blog will go on!!

***
My wonderful aunt works at Barney's and gets free nail polish and gives it to me... which is why I have the Deborah Lippmann 80's Rewind collection to show you today! 

Polishes Used (pinky to index):
Deborah Lippmann Maniac, She Drives Me Crazy, Walking on Sunshine, Don't Stop Believin

Eyes seemed pretty 80's and rewind-ish to me, so... 
I like how the lines can be super shaky but it still looks OK! (I can't draw straight lines!!)

I finally got to use my fabulous eye book background!


There are 6 shades in the 80's Rewind collection (all cremes, listed from L to R): Whip It, Don't Stop Believin, Walking on Sunshine, She Drives Me Crazy, Video Killed the Radio Star, and Maniac. All of them were super pigmented and had great formulas, with the exception of Walking on Sunshine, which required 3 coats for non-streaky opacity.

I liked this collection but I don't feel it's a must-have. Bright colors aren't really my sort of thing -- I tend to go for nude/pastel shades. None of them feel that special to me. Except for maybe Walking on Sunshine, there are probably cheap drugstore dupes for all of these. But if you love retro colors and are willing to spend $18 per bottle in exchange for a wonderful formula, go for it!

Thanks for reading!
