|Damask Rose – £5|
When I popped down to London in early June, I made a beeline for & Other Stories to see if its beauty products lived up to the blogger hype surrounding the store. You can order the full beauty range from the website but shipping is quite pricey and if I’m not familiar with a brand, I like to buy in person so I can judge the quality and reliability of the shade representation on the internet. In addition to other items, I picked up one of their bottles of nail varnish in Damask Rose.
I really like the packaging. The chunky glass bottle white a white top fits in really well with the stores branding and is quite distinctive when its placed in my varnish collection. I absolutely adore the brush. It’s possibly the best brush I have ever used, and is perfect if like me your a bit clumsy, find painting your nails neatly a bit of a chore and don’t want to faf around. Its a lovely flat, finish brush and helps you get the perfect finish every time. The shade is beautiful, a warm shimmering copper. I think the image on the internet is a bit pinker than it is actually, but its definitely akin to rose gold. The quality of the polish is amazing. After one coat it was pretty much opaque, and I only applied another just to satisfy my perfectionist ways. Wear wise its around the 5 day mark which I think everyone would be pretty satisfied with for a £5 price tag. Although the shade selection is a bit limited, they are all such lovely wearable choices, and it did take me a while to decide on one.
I am so so impressed with & Other Stories beauty products so far. They have definitely earned the blogger hype. I just hope they open another store, hopefully up north so I can indulge a bit more!
Have you tried anything from the brand?
