They’re killing fairies for their blood!!!

Posted by Lipglossiping On December - 1 - 2009

George at Asda I mean…

They must be? How else can they possibly be knocking out such awesome shades for £1.50 a bottle?


This is hmmm… how can I best describe.  A gilded olive?

I hate greens, but this I love.  So if you hate greens too, try it…. seriously – it’s beautiful!

It’s a metallic, so there is some evidence of brush stroke but no more than my higher end metallic polishes and even less than some.

It’s called Superstar and really is something special.

Application and longevity are in line with the rest of the George shades I’ve tried.

Unfortunately, this will go down in history as the “last shade”.  The “last shade” before stump-gate.  No matter, it’s beautiful.

    I want to try the Asda nail polish so bad but they dont seem to have it in my local store – will have to try one a bit further away!

  11. Helen says:

    I love it. Love, love, love. I wish we had an Asda near us :(

    I too am suffering from my own personal stump-gate that hasn’t made it on to the blog yet. So I feel your pain.

  12. UnicornSmile says:

    This is great, I have it too. All those asda shades are really impressive, better than many high end brands :)

  13. Redtiger21 says:

    This is nice! I never seem to be able to wear greens as my hands are usually red raw from work and they make me look rough! I have an eyeshadow in this colour though, and it’s gorgeous!
