Shape Up with Kit Cosmetics Limited Edition Nail Strips

If you are a regular reader of my blog you would know by now that I looooove nail polish strips! So when Kit Cosmetics came out with their own limited edition nail polish strips I was there!

After hunting down a store, I quickly purchased 2 designs, Lace It Up and Shape Up.

Kit Cosmetic nail strips in Lace It Up and Shape Up

SHAPE UP

The Limited Edition Kit Cosmetics Nail Strips in Shape Up features a geometric color block design with hues of coral, purple, light grey, white, blue and navy blue. It comes with 20 pre-cut nail strips in a foil packaging.

Directions on how to apply (as on packaging)
Start with clean, filed nails.
Remove any excess oils with nail polish remover and apply a base coat to your nail.
Select the appropriate size sticker for each nail
Peel off the sticker and apply onto the nail, with the rounded end close to the cuticle.
Smooth the sticker onto the nail and trim or file the excess.
For a longer lasting result and more effective adhesion apply a top coat. 

 Being impatient and wanting to get these babies on my nails asap, I applied without any base coat. Nor did I apply any top coat after.

Results
Kit Cosmetics nail strips are my new nail toy! The strips are easy to apply and with all nail strips there is no drying time. Because these strips have a geometric pattern it is best applied straight and even. If you apply wrongly it is easy to slowly peel off and re-position.


Shape Up on my nails!

Nail color blocking at its best!


Compared to other nail strips these are better value however they do not come with a nail file like others. They also do not last as long as other nail strips, only 5 days however with a top coat they may last longer. Will post my results after wearing them for a week.

Retails for AU $9.95

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain Sample


From the YSL newsletter:

Experience it for yourself

Visit your nearest Yves Saint Laurent counter and present this voucher to receive a complimentary deluxe sample card of Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain. A new movement in lip wear is born.

One per customer while stocks last.


UPDATE

Picked up the sample card from my nearest YSL counter. It comes in 3 colours - an orange-red, blue based red and a nude. As I’m not too much of a lippy wearer the very helpful YSL assistant gave me some tips:

For my skin tone (asian based olive skin), any of the reds would suit me.
·         Wear orange based reds if wearing brown tones
·         Wear blue based reds if wearing navy tones
·         Nude lips go with anything.

Also the YSL counters are having makeover workshops, $50 booking fee redeemable on products.
