As a way to bring in a bit of spending money I sold cosmetics from Virgin Vie.
Yes. That Virgin.
The one owned by Richard Branson.
While I never got to meet The Man (that privilege was for the Top 20 sales people, my sales were only moderate), I loved the cosmetics and the products, even if they were a bit on the expensive side. To be fair though, they never, EVER, branded themselves as a budget brand.
This little quintet of 5ml polishes is from their (now discontinued) Renaissance Collection. It was a lovely collection of luxe-inspired colours that oozed decadence. They come in a cardboard box that slides out of its cover to reveal the polishes. Really pretty when displayed on my chest of drawers...

The other colours are Titan (Brown/purple odd colour), Crimson (a Shimmery Berry Red), Marble (a lovely subtle Pink with teeny-tiny silver glitter) and Ermine (A subtle silvery lilac).
Virgin Vie UK does some excellent cosmetics, even if they are on the moderate to expensive side. Their One-step Face base is excellent for Oily skinned gals (I was one and Loved this) and they do fantastic home-wares too. Wait for their frequent sales to bag a bargain though...
I plan on wearing all of these shades over the next few weeks so that I can re-live the memories associated with them, so look out for other posts as I will be looking for dupes :)
Happy New Year Peeps!
