Black Magic Woman • Sweet Emotion • Venus in Furs
I recently came home to some nail mail (AKA the best mail) from Deborah Lippmann, one of the most luxe polish brands out there. I remember dying to get my hands on the first-ever polish I saw from her, Mermaid’s Dream, back in, like, 2010 but couldn’t find it anywhere in Canada at the time. I tracked it down on a trip to NYC and I was so ecstatic to have it! Ever since then, I’ve loved DL polishes, and have managed to build quite a little collection.
Their latest collection, Star Power, has plenty of fall-perfect shades. What I love about these polishes (and her Gel Lab Pro line) is the thick, flat, rounded brush that makes application a breeze. They’re also vegan and five-free, which is pretty amazing. When it comes to this collection –let’s be honest– all the shades are really nice, but DL’s price point is a little steep, so I’d skip the more basic colours here (purple, burgundy, grey –you can most likely find dupes at the drugstore, though they probably won’t apply as buttery as these do).
What really wowed me, as I’m sure you can tell by the photos in this post, was this gorgeous grey holographic colour that is a Sephora exclusive (and 100% worth every penny). It’s called Black Magic Woman and has quickly climbed the top spot on my fall polish ranking. I just love it. I’m a sucker for anything holographic and that, paired with a charcoal base, makes it super chic (not childish). Must-have!
Will you be picking up any shades from the Star Power collection? Let me know in the comments! x
