Yardley adds new shades to their retractable eye pencil and Quick Dry nail polish lines

Yardley have added three new metallic shades to their very popular retractable eye pencil line:

Silver Siren, Gilded Gold and Cobalt Blue.

Each pencil is creamy and soft yet the colour it serves up is highly pigmented with good staying power.

From left to right; Cobalt Blue, Silver Siren and Gilded Gold.

I quite like the silver shade and discovered that, when worn on the your inner lower lash line, it can help brighten up tired-looking eyes much the same way white pencil does. Obviously it’s every so slightly glitzier-looking, so I’d only do this at night. But in saying that, the look is still nice and subtle. Nobodies going to mistake you for an extra in Burlesque, as is often the case with metallic eye make-up. 

Other new shades in the Yardley line up? Two new Quick Dry nail polishes:

Enchanted Eve on the left and Urban Force on the right.

I quite like Yardley’s Quick Dry polishes as they really do dry with lightning speed. They’re the perfect thing to reach for when you’re in a rush. The only downside is, without a serious top coat, they’re more prone to chip than Yardley’s other nail colours.

Enchanted Eve is an every so slightly mauvey-looking silver and Urban Force is a pearlescent sapphire blue.

If you’re keen to give either the eye pencils (R82,95) or nail colours (R48,95) a bash, you’ll find them on the shelves a little later this month.

Love, love

  1. I really like the gold one. My sister wears gold shadow on the top of her eyes at night and it looks great. I’m going to try this one.
