Review: Une Polishes & Eye Shadows

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

How gorgeous are these Une nail polishes? When they landed on my desk, I immediately fell in love with the nude pink polish . It looked so pretty in the bottle and the same was reflected on my nails. I'm quite happy that my Une collection is growing (remember this lipstick? My favorite is their golden BB cream that doubles as a beautiful highlighter). The fact that this brand is all about organic makeup is a bonus.

The Une C03 polish is probably a favorite among so many girls. It looks gorgeous on the nails and is certainly one of those work-appropriate shades. The color goes on slightly sheer with the first coat and the second seals the deal. 

I didn't apply a top coat as the polish is quite glossy on it's own (I think the picture speaks for itself). 

Next up is a beautiful chocolate brown shade, C16. When I first saw this color, I ignored it. Don't get me wrong- I'm a huge fan of dark colored polishes. In fact, my polish shelf has about 90% dark colors however, looking at C16 made me not want to try it on. It didn't look appealing. I changed my mind when I applied it. 

The color is beautiful! It's such a rich chocolate brown shade and glossy as well. No top coat here either. I now appreciate browns more!  

Both polishes are long lasting- they barely chip. And none of them (especially C16) stained my nails. Hurray! 

And now I present to you another work-appropriate makeup product: The Une Top 3 Eye Palette.

I had a similar perspective of this eye shadow palette when I saw the packaging. I noticed the colors on the label and ignored it. Never judge a book by its cover. The colors are truly pretty; I wore the S03 one fine day, loved it and repeated the look the next day. 

The palette has 3 gorgeous colors. S03- a soft pink (that pretty much matches nail polish C03), S06- a slightly deeper pink (although it looks more like a light aubergine in the picture) and S08- a brown for the crease. 

What I noticed is, if you blend S03 and S06, it turns out to be a totally gorgeous dusty/medium rose. Love this palette! Unfortunately, the colors are on the lighter end to appear as swatches in pictures (I took at least 5 shots with different angles and lighting, yet couldn't capture it right). 

And the final product is the Une Ultra Black Eye Liner Kohl pencil. It is creamy and glides effortlessly on the eyelids (people with oily lids, I suggest you either use a primer first or avoid this all together) and doubles up as a smokey eye shadow if you smudge and blend it. 

Absolutely loving these goodies from Une. If you are impressed and looking for more Une products, read my review on their foundation and mascara
