On Katja's blog Viva La Vida I always read positive reviews about Bell HYPOAllergenic products, so I was eager to try them. I visited our Tuš drugstore in Beltinci to see if they sell their products and I was happy to find their assortment there. This brand is also available online, on www.bodizenska.si but I prefer buying products in person and swatching products in the drugstore. I wanted to write the first impression about the products I bought but I'm using them for so long now that I can already write a proper review. I decided to start with their nail polishes.
I've chosen four shades that are the most typical for me. Polishes come in a round bottle that contains 9,5 ml. I think I paid around 4 € for one shade. The brush is long, narrow and flat, and it's easy to work with. The difficulty of application depends on from a formula of a polish, which varies from shade to shade. These dry quite fast even without fast drying top coat. On my weak nails, these lasted around two days, as normally polishes do. These polishes have numbers, not names, which is a bit disappointing because I love polishes with interesting names. Otherwise, the selection of shades is quite nice. I think they mostly sell polishes with a creamy finish, which is classic and also my favourite finish.
04 is a darker purple shade with a creamy finish. This one has the best pigmented formula of all shades, but the worse brush. I think there was something wrong when they were tripping the bristles because on one side they left longer bristles as on other and that means that the nice application of this polish is quite difficult. I used two coats for these swatches.
04 is a blue cream polish, and this one is my favourite of the bunch. I have a soft spot for this kind of blue shade, I bet I can find a similar shade from other brands in my stash already. This one has a nice formula that applies easy and it's opaque in two coats.
07 is a sky blue cream shade. This one has a bit watery formula, but it's less runny and better pigmented as for example 08. I used two coats for these swatches. This one is my second favourite.
08 is a light green cream shade. This one has the sheerest and most disappointing formula. It's quite watery and runny, so one has to apply thin coats, otherwise polish ends up on cuticles. The shade itself is very pretty. I used three coats for these swatches.
