Mavala - Khaki Vintage

New favourite alert! I'm so glad I decided to splash out (all of £3.95 it was I think!) and buy this. I was hesitant as I've been seduced by pretty Mavala colours before then been underwhelmed when I've applied them. But I have been very pleasantly surprised by Vintage Khaki - in fact I'd say this is straight in my top ten shades of all time. I can see this working all times of year too.

How to describe the colour - Khaki doesn't spring to mind immediately. But there is something vintage about it. It's elegant and delicate.... it makes me think of vintage china teacups and lace, and has a very pretty, subtle shimmer running through this. I'd say this would suit many skintones - it doesn't feel too warm or cold.

What do you think?

Khaki Vintage is part of the Mavala Select range of six soft catwalk-inspired colours that was released earlier this year. I have to say the others look equally dreamy - Moon Grey and Rose Dust in particular.

Application was okay - think I just need to get used to this formula. Staying power not fantastic but at this price, I don't care. *EDIT: Staying power is actually pretty damn good - I think I had a bit of a wobble on day 1 but three days later it's still looking pretty good! * I have to say I do appreciate the smaller pots - I don't think i have ever used up a full sized bottle of polish before having to throw it out.

£3.95 for 5ml. Available widely online and in department stores, Boots etc.
