Essence Alert! Foiling the Big Boys - Again!




You read that right, Essence have done it again. Foil look polishes are what all the best dressed talons are wearing this season & if you take my advice you'll hotfoot it to your local Essence supplier and pick these little beauties up.

We all know I have a bit of a polish piggery problem going on, so for comparison purposes I've pulled a couple of my favourite foils for you to peruse:


Essence Icy Princess €1.29, TopShop Starlight (Identical dupe) €7, Chanel Graphite €21

I've favourited this TopShop number for quite a while now, pishahing Barry M's Silver Foil in it's favour but Essence's Icy Princess is an astonishing dupe for 1 sixth of the price? No brainer!


Essence Shiny Goddess€1.29, Barry M 320 Foil, Sally Hansen Gilty Pleasure €8.29

I have a couple of gold offerings and I am partial to Sally Hansen's Complete Manicure awesomeness but Essence is actually the brightest, foiliest of the three. Barry M is listed as a foil but disappointingly matt on the nail.

 

If you like your foils you got to get 'em, you got gots to get 'em!

I really don't like the Barry M ones - they're not foily!! I have the silver one and it's like silver tippex. I LOVE that essence gold one, they're so shimmery! Essence should win a prize for being super duper cheap and brilliant. No, I don't work for them. :)

you should have seen me trying to load this on my iphone in the dunnes basement in stephens green today, i was like I KNOW IT WAS ESSENCE BUT WHICH ONE! I was late back to work dashing round the aisles looking for a 3g signal. Got it though (why on earth did they have to move all the makeupy stuff from the ground floor)
