Touch of Provence is a lilac (cool toned) polish with very subtle shimmer running through it. I bought this polish a long time ago, but I kept putting off trying it. This polish was such a pleasant surprise - it looked soft and feminine. It gives you enough colour not to look boring, but it is neutral enough to be worn at work. I was worried that the shimmer would make it look like a frost polish, but instead it gave this polish glowing, porcelain-like effect.The formula was very good, which was also a surprise. I thought it would be thin and sheer, but I only needed two coats to give me full opacity. It lasted well on me too.if you like soft, feminine polishes with just a hint of colour, I would highly recommend you try Touch of Provence.

Cherry Cosmic is a berry-coloured, glitter polish. It came out last year in Mavala Cosmic Collection. As soon as I saw the pictures of this collection I wanted it all. Luckily I only bought 1 polish to begin with. I applied 2 coats, which covered my nail well. But, it dries to a textured finish (I do not like textures). I ended up applying 3 coats of a top coat to smooth it out and to give it that shiny, glass-finish I was after. But the following morning when I run my finger over the top, it was still slightly rough. I love Mavala polishes, which is why I found this one so disappointing. It reminded me very much of China Glaze Where's The Party Cannon At. Only Cherry Cosmic is richer/darker and less glittery. Needless to say I will not be repurchasing this polish or buying any more from this collection.

I bought this product a few years ago when I was living in London and accidently burnt all the eyelashes off one of my eyes. It was really, really obvious, I had brittle stumps and had my graduation 4 weeks later.I bought this beauty from Boots for a very small price in comparison to other eyelash serums and my expectations were low.After using religiously on my one damaged eye for a month, my eyelashes grew back in their entireity and were even thicker than before.I've recently used Revitalash and noticed that my eyelashes are falling out after 2 months plus other side effects so I am about to swap out Revitalash for Mavala as I think the product is much less harsh and will do the job of thickening out my lashes over the next 3 weeks prior to my wedding.PROS:PriceThickens eyelashesHelps grow back lost lashes CONS:Packaging - looks like a nail polishWon't necessarily grow your lashes like Revitalash, rather this will give maybe a small amount of length but mostly body

Samarkand is a blue violet, cream polish. I reached for this colour because I wanted to start the year by trying out Pantone Colour of the year 2018 - Ultra Violet and Samarkand was one of the closest offerings in my collection. I love this colour, it's fun. I rarely have a problem with Mavala formula and this polish does not disappoint. It applies well. I used 2 coats. There was no problem with drying time (although I always use quick dry top coat) or wear time.

Pros:- huge color selection;- vibrant opaque colors. Can easily get away with one coat;- small size (5ml). I like the concept of having less polish, I've never finished a full bottle.Cons:- it only lasts about 3 to 4 days before chipping;- small polish equals a small brush, small brush with short chubby handle isn't the easiest combo to work with. I had many of them while living in Switzerland, but I won't buy them again. They are good polishes but aren't great.
