Deborah Lippmann I Know What Boys Like

Deborah Lippmann I Know What Boys Like Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.5 fl. oz.) is described as a “playful periwinkle.” It’s a really rich, dark periwinkle, and to me, I see indigo–that perfect mix of blue and violet that gives you something different. I used two coats for swatches, and there is a hint of visible nail line, so I would say three is likely the ideal strategy here. It’s described as a cream finish, but it is more like a cream meets jelly–it has that slightly squishy look of a jelly.

Deborah Lippmann’s cream polishes last about a week on me with a good top/base coat (I prefer Zoya’s for both). The formula on this is a little watery, but I wouldn’t say it ended up being sheer or runny, as it still applied evenly and didn’t pull in places. Essie Smooth Sailing is lighter and has shimmer but reminded me of it nonetheless. SpaRitual Illume has a jelly-like appearance, but it leans more purple.

Giorgio Armani White Punch (11) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow

Giorgio Armani White Punch (11) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a pale pink-tinged beige and white mix of colors that translates into a pink-tinged white with a high-shine metallic finish. The sheen is so reflective–this can really pop on lids if you apply it opaque. I did find that this shade did not apply as well as many of the other shades within the range–it was a little uneven, which led to some sheerness in places.  The color reminded me of MAC Et tu, Bouquet?, perhaps a little pinker.

The texture of the Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadows is interesting; it’s a really compacted loose powder, but it’s so finely milled that it almost feels like a hybrid cream-powder. Each pot contains 0.14 oz. worth of product, which is a good amount, given that most pressed eyeshadows average around 0.05 oz. I have worn around half of the range alone on lids with 12+ hours of wear without creasing, smudging, or fading.
