Accessorize Makeup

For those beauty addicts out there who only associated pretty jewellery, handbags and other accessories with the brand Accessorize, you're in for a surprise (I was surprised too). Apparently they sell makeup too! I was so surprised when I went to Clicks to look for the recently released NYX brand, which I have been waiting ages for, and found the Accessorize makeup line instead.  Who would have known? I've never heard of their makeup being mentioned by any of my favourite youtube gurus, so it's really unknown territory for me.

I haven't had the time to look in detail at the makeup yet and swatch everything, but I thought I'd post some pictures for those of you who haven't seen it yet. My first impressions are that their packaging is quite cute! The packing of their nail polishes are similar to some of the Essence nail polishes. The packaging of the blushes remind me of how Benefit package their blushes. I think the little box idea is sooo adorable! The eyeshadows look like the 3-in-1 mineralised eyeshadows that MAC sells once in a while. So it seems like Accessorize has taken some cute ideas from different makeup brands and used it in their collection.

As you can see from the pictures, their makeup is quite reasonably priced. At this point I'm unable to comment on whether the quality justifies the price, but for a first impression, it looks pretty good. I can't wait to finish exams so I can sit at the store and swatch everything on my hands! I'll probably look like a multi-coloured zebra afterwards, but at least I will be one happy multi-coloured zebra :)

If anyone has tried makeup from this line, please let me know your thoughts and whether there are any products that you recommend trying. Thanks!
