POP Beauty Matchy Matchy Pinky Duette

POP Beauty Matchy Matchy Pinky DuetteThe number of POP Beauty items in my nail and makeup collection is growing quickly! There was another POP Beauty event on Hautelook recently and I just couldn’t resist picking up a few more things after having such fabulous luck with Brave, the first polish I tried from them.

During that particular event they had 2 of the Matchy Matchy Duos. Of course I ended up with both of them!

The Pinky Duette came with both a nail polish and lip balm in pinky. Being that I am completely addicted to neon I was really excited to give this duo a try.

Below the jump are pictures of the packaging this duo came in as well as my thoughts on both the nail polish and lip balm. There’s also a bonus mani 🙂

Packaging & Contents: This duo came in dressed up plastic packaging. It’s nothing fancy but I think it’s adorable. The claim on the front of the packaging is that this duo is $10 (I paid $5 on Hautelook) but is an $18 value. The polish can be purchased on its own for $10 but while I like the lip balm, I think it’s a stretch to claim the lip balm (which is not available for individual purchase) is an $8 value. That being said, even at the full price of $10 I think this duo is well worth the price.

Pinky Nail Polish: Admittedly, when I saw this polish in the packaging I thought it was going to be a neon polish. That would have been fine. I love neon polishes. But when I started to apply Pinky the formula wasn’t thin nor did it dry to that weird semi matte finish.

Despite the fact that Pinky is not a neon it is still a super bright, cool toned pink creme. The formula is fabulous. I used just two coats in my swatches.

The nice thing about this not being a neon is I didn’t have to layer it over a white polish and it wears well. Yay for that!

Pinky Lip Balm: So…not gonna lie. I’m a bit sad this lip balm is clear. Yes, it says that on the packaging, but I can still be disappointed!

This turned out to be a nice lipbalm. It’s very moisturizing and adds a bit of a sheen to the lips. It has a sweet smell that reminds me of Double Bubble. It also kind of tastes like Double Bubble. Considering I love Double Bubble (seriously…why do I never see that stuff except for at Halloween!?) I don’t mind the scent and taste. Strangely, I like the fact the lip balm is square. Just makes it kind of different from most lip balms in my collection.

Overall, I really like this little duo. It was well worth the $5 I paid for it, but I think it’s worth the normal $10 price as well.

POP Beauty is frequently sold on Hautelook though I don’t know of any events in the near future and of course I have no way of knowing what products are included. This duo is currently available at places like Ulta, Zappos and beauty.com.

Bonus Mani: I added an accent nail using the Bidhu Mohapatra NCLA nail wraps. I love the way they looked together! It was a great way to brighten a Monday.
