Raising The Barre is a dark burgundy, cream polish. I own a miniature bottle, which was a part of Ciate Advent Calendar 2016. The application was pretty good. I thought 2 coats would be enough, but having applied 2nd coats I have noticed bald patches at the base of my nails, so I applied the 3rd coats to cover it up. But, I think with a careful application two coats should be enough. I had a fair bit of tipwear after a couple of days, but no chips. This polish is highly pigmented, so when removing try to avoid skin as it can stain a little. I do like vampy polishes, but a lot of the time this polish looked almost black (which probably wasn't helped by me applying 3 coats). For that reason I wouldn't repurchase Raising The Barre, but I wouldn't discourage anyone else trying it.

OMG - my new favorite liquid lipstick! Surprisingly, the applicator brush is VERY precise to line your lips. The color is highly pigmented, bold color. I own the colors "Pin Up" which is like a deep plum like red, as well as "Fling" which is still deep plum, but more mauve - I think both looking absolutely stunning against my blonde hair contrast. The feel when applying, is airy and like the name implies - velvety. It dries matte. The only thing is that this product does have a chemical smell from the bottle, but seems odorless once applied to the lips and when it dries. If I want more of a shine, I'll usually just add a sweetly scented lip balm over the top.

So I bought these in the shades ‘frozen’ (silver) and ‘ice box’ (turquoise) ...and a cobalt blue colour which I gave to a friend!The point of these are to prime the eyelids in preparation for shimmer eyeshadows. They come in small tubes and go on as a translucent shimmer cream which dries down...I suppose the idea is to match the depth of colour of the eyeshadow you’re going to apply with the shimmer..? I haven’t tried but it might look weird to use a turquoise primer under a silver eyeshadow...or it might look cool. I just don’t know.Anyway, these work. They hold the eyeshadow in place and bring out their pigments. I bought mine for £2 from tk maxx, so i was happy with the price too.Watch me use this primer on my eyelids AND my lips in my zombie swamp witch quick and easy Halloween makeup video :) Just search for Ayish Zone on YouTube xx

These have been incredibly hard to get my mitts on, else I'd have reviewed it much sooner. I have the shade "Infamous" which is a gorgeous berry shade with silver shimmer. I normally do a pro/con with reviews but I have to tell you ---THERE ARE NO CONS. This is one of the most flattering shades of liquid lipstick that I own, it lasts several hours without feeling dry or tight, lasts through FOOD and drink both, and wears off evenly for a nice glimmery berry stain at the end. It is not as glittery as you'd think, definitely smooth and not chunky. But it brightens my face like nobodies business, I love it. I wish the line would come out with even more shades! A+

Plies Please Me is a grey, chrome polish with a very slight pink/lilac shift. The shift is what makes this polish different/unusual. This polish needs 2-3 coats depending on your application. It is a little brushstroke-y, but not as much as some metallics can be. Another downside of its metallic finish is that it shows all the imperfections on your nails, such as ridges. There is nothing wrong with this polish as such, but I can't imagine this shade to be flattering on anyone. I wasn't 'feeling it' and after 1 day of hoping it would grow on me, I took it off. I can see this polish working as a base for some nail art/stamping, so I might use it again, but I would not be repurchasing.
