OPI Muppets Most Wanted Collection

The OPI Muppets most wanted collection was released back in April, to celebrate the release of The Muppets Most Wanted in Cinemas, in Australia.

While the movie has been out of theatres for a while, you may still be able to purchase the OPI Polishes at selected Myer and David Jones stores. Unfortunately I didn’t get around to seeing the movie, but I will definitely be buying the DVD when it’s released.

 At Salon Melbourne earlier this year, I purchased the ‘When Froggy met Piggy’ duo (below) It includes ‘Kermit Me To Speak’ and ‘Gaining Mole-Mentum’.

 OPI Muppets Most Wanted swatches

Kermit Me to Speak– Described as a ‘rosy mauve’ (I kind of get that), but I see it more of being a multifaceted green/purple shade, depending on which way the light catches it. One of my favourite shades from the collection. It reminds me a little of the Sally Hansen Lustre shine polishes.
OPI Muppets most wantedGaining Mole-Mentum– As described, this polish is ‘shredded gold and chunky pink glitter’ in a clear base. While this looks pretty in the bottle, I wasn’t a fan of the application. You had to kind of ‘fish out’ the glitter pieces to get an even coat and unless you put on a clear coat over the top, the shredded pieces make your nails feel rough. I applied it over ‘Chillin’ Like a Villain’.
OPI Muppets Most wantedChillin’ Like a Villain*– Described as a ‘sheer nude’, but I think it could be described as a pastel peach also! Just as described is is very sheer, so if you want it more opaque, you’ll need a few coats. This polish is a perfect everyday shade!
OPI Muppets most wantedMiss Piggy’s Big Number*– My other favourite shade from the collection. A gorgeous sapphire blue, that is very shimmery/metallic! A perfect shade for winter too, as it’s a lot darker than the other polishes.
OPI muppets most wantedThe polishes wear quite well, I’ve had ‘Chillin’ Like a Villain’ on for a little over a week now and only the tips have slightly chipped. My nails grow fairly quickly, so there isn’t polish close to my nail-beds, but that end hasn’t chipped at all!

There are 8 polishes in the collection and they retail for $19.95 each, at Myer and David Jones.

Ulta3 Lip Paint Review + Swatches

I did intend on having this This Ulta3 Lip Paint review written, photographed for and published about a week or so ago, but unfortunately I came down with a terrible cold, so didn’t feel up to swatching the colours on my lips, photographing the swatches etc.

ulta3 Lip paint review

From Top to Bottom: Radical Red*, Loud Purple*, Expressive Fuchsia, Extreme Pink

Ulta3 kindly sent me two of the lip paint shades to review and I picked up another two shades from one of my local pharmacies.

 Please excuse the red blotchy patches around my lips, I was still unwell and I broke out around my lips more than usual! I totally forgot to swatch them on my hand, but I think lip swatches shows the colours better.

Ulta3 Lip Paint Review

All of the lip paints appear to be quite pigmented, but not all of them are totally opaque on the lips. The darker shades (Fuchsia and Red) are opaque, while the lighter shades (Pink and Purple) are a little more sheer. Of course this could be improved with the use of a lipstick or lip pencil in a similar shade under them.

The texture, I would describe as more of a thicker lip gloss. My favourite shade of the four I tried (there are a total of 6 shades) is Expressive Fuchsia.

The scent smells strongly of peppermint oil, which not everyone will be a fan of, but I don’t mind it too much. I just think I might not be able to wear them all the time.

The Lip Paints are available at selected pharmacies, It’s just a matter of coming across one that stocks the brand. I picked up the additional two shades from Community Care Chemist in Belmont (Geelong), purely by chance. (didn’t know they stocked Ulta3)

Each lip paint retails for $5.95


Pros: Pigmented, Dark shades are opaque, affordable, not too sticky, easy to apply (doe-foot applicator), 6 shades to choose from
Cons: Light shades a little sheer/streaky, have to reapply after a while, strong peppermint oil scent, no real neutral shade.

Overall I was quite pleased with these lip paints. The only one I was really disappointed with, was Extreme Pink. I bought it because I loved the look of the shade in the tube, but unfortunately it was the most sheer of the four above shades. I also wish there had been a nude shade.
