Paese (pronounced 'Pa'ese') Cosmetics have been slowly making themselves known in the Irish beauty market. The award winning Polish brand has a full range of cosmetics such as primers, foundations, lip products and nail care at ridiculously affordable prices and if their polishes are anything to go by, I'm looking forward to trying more.
|Paese Polishes in 131 & 135 - €3 a piece|
The two polishes that I was sent to have a play with a 131, a rich oxblood red and 135 a pastel mauve. Only two of a possible 16, these polishes are pretty decent for €3. Both colours definitely need two coats but dry quickly and to a high shine (no top coat used above). I'm on two days now with no chips, that's fairly good going for a budget brand, considering some of high end offerings chip within the same day.
My only niggle with these polishes is the bottles, the brush is grand, does the trick but the lids seem to be ill fitting. Don't get me wrong, your polish is safe as houses inside and it's little I've to be complaining about at €3 a bottle but I do think it's something the brand could look at.
|Paese One Touch Polish Remover - €3.50|
Making a recent Cloud 10 order, I spotted this nifty feller too, for €3.50 and with the amount of polish I remove weekly I thought I'd give him a bash. Reminiscent of salon removers with its one touch system, Paese Polish remover is a cinch to use. One pump is actually enough and this much remover will clear a full nail in a couple of swipes.
This remover contains acetone, so, while I wouldn't recommend it for everyday use as it would dry your nails, when in a rush - this is poifect!
I've also been sent some of the nail care treatments from the brand, which I am testing at the mo but results will be up as soon as I have them.
