Barry M Lip Paint #426 Genie

One of my newer purchases has been the Barry M Lip Paint. When I bought some for my cosuins birthday in September I noticed one in very different packaging. When I opened the tester tube, imagine my surprise when the product was GREEN! I immediately put it back and walked away; green was a bit too outside my comfort-zone. A few days later, while surfing youtube (as you do), an advert for the very same product popped up; imagine my surprise when the color actually turned PINK!!!

The product I'm talking is the Barry M Lip Paint, in the shade #426 Genie. The outer packaging is very eye-catching. The top cap is pink while the bottom is green, hinting towards it's dual colors. 

The lip paint glides on smoothly in one even pink color. It develops over a period of time to become super pigmented, which is due to the color changing formula which factors in the pH of your lips. The lip paint is also VERY moisturizing; I quite expected my lips to dry out within the hour.

The Genie lip paint is also very long lasting. The glossy effect fades after a couple of hours but the rich pink hue remains all nigh long. The lip paint seems to contain properties which stain the surface of your lips.
On the other hand that also means that any 'oopsies' cannot be easily changed and you will spend ages swiping away at a small spot with a remover wipe.

The Barry M #428 Genie Lip Paint can be found in both Boots and Superdrug for £4.49, which I think is an absolute bargain.

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips. 

MAC: Fraud or Not?

It's getting to the time of year when  people start gathering together all there gifts in the rush to the holiday season. They start trying to get the best gifts possible for the best price they can. Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay. When I learned of it I was immediately sceptical and dubious of how genuine it was; I like to research into the item and view the pictures available myself. When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…
