Want It: A England British Subcultures Nail Varnish Collection

A England is one of a kind brand, not only their nail polishes are ridiculously gorgeous but the stories behind them are fascinating.  It was a pleasure to interview the founder Adina (read it here) a while ago, and I am always looking forward to the new releases.

And this time the brand outdone itself, in my opinion, the new British Subcultures collection makes my heart beat faster. I found it mind blowing how Adina managed to  visualise a certain subculture with a colour, this is pure art, I am telling you.

SS19 Lip Products: Lisa Eldridge, Laura Mercier, BITE Beauty, Tom Ford, Hourglass, Givenchy

Laura Mercier Velour Lip Powder in Paris (shown) and New York £25 from Cult Beauty $28 from the Website, Nordstrom

A limited edition creamy matte lip powder trio with a metallic sheen. Comes with a moisturizing Base Balm to prep the lips. These look really cool, and I love the concept.

Lisa Eldridge lipsticks. The red ones sold out within a day(s) so I did not even have time to get any. But she promised a restock, and new nude and fuchsia shades (see below a pic of Eva wearing one of the new shades; pic is from Lisa’s Insta)!  I don’t know the date yet.

Bite beauty lip products are incredible, and it looks like it’s another great one

SS19 Bright Eye Shadow Palettes: Lorac, Jouer, Anastasia

Bright eye shadows are a real  trend this summer, I have already featured L’Oreal and Viseart but there are many, many more. I’ve decided to mention 3 palettes which I personally like the most. And I like the look of them. I have not tried these particular palettes but I do have other palettes from these three brands, and love them. So here is hoping these are great, too.

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Alyssa Edwards Eyeshadow Palette £46 Cult Beauty $45 Sephora

I am including this because I am obsessed with Norvina palette which I have. While I did not know who Alyssa Edwards was (RuPaul’s Drag  Race contestant) I love the combination of bold and neutral shades.
