Sinister Benediction – Purple Moon

Sinister Benediction Purple Moon-001

Happy Sunday!

Another lazy weekend for me 🙂 I think that at this time of year, when it’s starting to get a bit cold, lazy weekends are my favourite type!

You’ve probably noticed that I’m a bit duochrome-obsessed at the moment. And, well, I decided it’s time to treat myself to a new Indie. I’ve seen some great reviews of Sinister Benediction, and they held an awesome Birthday reduction last month, so I ordered a couple from Etsy. They came all the way from the US, but arrived in 5 days (from date of purchase) – incredibly fast!

I love the bottle! It’s the usual 15ml (0.5oz); but is rounder than the usual polishes, and the logo is insanely cool! The name of each polish is on the bottom, so you won’t forget 🙂

When it comes to the polish, I swatched it over black. As you can see in the bottle, the ‘natural’ shade is very pale, and isn’t very covering (in 5 coats, I still felt it was too transparent), but over another colour, it totally pops!

The brush looked a little skinny at first, but actually did a good job. It’s not as skinny as China Glaze, for example, and it’s nice and smooth. The formula has a lot of pigment, so I only used one coat. There were a couple of brush strokes visible, but they weren’t too obvious(I haven’t edited them out) – that happens a lot with pigmented colours like this, so it’s not a big deal. And the colour really does change very easily! Aside from Ozotics, these are the easiest-to-photo duochromes I have ever used.

At the moment, there are only 9 shades on offer (here), so I’m stalking the shop to see if the range gets extended. Very impressed with the quality of these beauties!

It’s Armistice Day/Remembrance Day/Veterans Day (depending on which part of the world you are in) tomorrow, which means a public holiday in France. So, another lazy weekend for me 🙂 of course, Armistice Day is about much more than a day off work – it’s important to remember WWI and WWII and to take the time to thank all those who did their part to preserve our freedom. My Grandma lost her older brother in the War, but I think every family in this part of Europe has been touched by what happened. Of course, there were many brave soldiers from all over the world, including Poland, the Commonwealth, US and Canada. So please remember to take a 2 minute silence – it’s the least we can do, huh!
