A few weeks ago I was given some Ralo products to try out and to share my experiences with you. Prior to learning about Ralo Cosmetics from the lovely Simone and Shajar, I was a bit in the dark with regards to who they are and what they offer.
The brand is cheaper than most larger cosmetic competitors, and it easily rivals some of the more drugstore-type brands. Don’t let the packaging deceive you as the products work as they say they will; not to mention the staff are super helpful and friendly (unlike some major cosmetic brands!) which all in all means that they are not a bad stop for anyone that is possibly not sure of what they want or is on a tight budget.
The nail polish I’m wearing is Ralo Professional Nail Polish in 75 and retails for R39.50. It’s a matte-metallic pink. You can browse all the colours in this range here.
The bottle is plain, nothing fancy my only complaint was that the brush itself is quite short and unfortunately my brushs brissles were bent and sadly there is no name but just a number.
The polish itself is highly pigmented and with one coat my nail was completely covered, I did however put a second coat on top just because I’m OCD like that 😉
It took 4 days for my polish to start chipping, which in retrospect is not bad but it is certainly not along the likes of the higher salon brands where I can get two weeks wear before a chip – but then again in price Ralo beats them hands down.
You follow them on Twitter @RaloCosmetics and like them on Facebook too.
