I acquired my little bottle of Essence Blue Addicted a few months ago. The was no real reason for the purchase, other than the blue and green hexagonal glitter suspended in a dark blue jelly and further mixed with royal blue glitter (descriptive enough?) absolutely blew my mind. And for $3.55, I couldn't go wrong.
When I got it home, it was left on display so I could admire its beauty but I didn't actually use it. Through all my blog stalking, I found this little shade was actually a dupe for Across The Universe by Deborah Lippmann. I'm not one to stalk brands and pay ridiculous prices just because a brand has come up with something new. If I love the colour, I will buy it. Cheap or not-too-expensive, I'm there.
However, after I found this out, I was quite happy to know that I could fake a little luxury if I wanted to.
Swatch below was done with three coats of Blue Addicted and one coat of Essence XXXL Shine Gel-look Top Coat.
And a photo of the bottle, even though you know what it looks like.
That's all from me (What? No ranting from me today?).
Until next time,
