Creative Colours Sets

Hi Guys,


It's gotten to that time of year again when the shops start to proudly display all their Christmas goods, and the shop I work in is no different. The Christmas portion of deliveries in previous weeks has risen significantly. Each time I go into work I end up humming any Christmas songs I can think of.



In past years I have always looked forward to the little makeup kits that all the shops seem to get, this year being the exception. I seem to be choosing more 'better quality' over quantity; going for more MAC, Benefit etc. 



 But, when I seen the Creative Colours collection in work I was intrigued. The deal was even sweetened when I realised I would get a discount on them.


The brushes cost me less than a pound. They have black and magenta leopard print handles and white and pink bristles. For their price their really okay quality. The brushes are very soft and fluffy, but on the other hand they have a strong 'new' smell. If that makes any sense.


The lip crayons were the best buy out of the three, in my opinion. They cost me less than £1.99. The shades are: nude, red, and orange (the same order that they are swatched in). I fell in love with how they all looked, especially the first two. The nude has undertones of pink, while the red is more raspberry toned. The orange is only very faint and acts as more of a clear balm.



The french manicure set was my only disappointment. When I first opened it I was shocked. I have never seen anyone use a magenta pink for their french manicures, so I had to question the decision to include it in the set. The bottles are also very tiny; I do at least three nail designs a week. The bottles wont last me very long. The upside is that the formula is very nice and the brush achieves good nail coverage.



Hope you enjoyed,

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…

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. 

Totally Fabby MAC Lipstick!

I'm in the middle of shopping for new products; sort of preparing for the transition from winter to spring. Instead of picking up deep burgundies and warm chocolates, I have started to pick up pastel pinks and vanillas. I cannot wait of the warmer weather to roll in. 

MAC frost lipstick in the shade Fabby was one of those new seasonal additions I picked up recently. Fabby is a really muted rosy pink shade with a frost finish. The draw point, for me, is the frost sheen gives kind of a golden overlay to the lips. The golden tone just adds an extra dimension, and helps brighten up any makeup look. 

For being a frost finish, the colour pigmentation is quite opaque with a single swipe. The texture is not that creamy, and I don't mean that in a bad way. I'd describe it more as very similar to that of a MAC matte finish; creamy and not glossy.

I feel that Fabby is one of MACs more overlooked shades; passed over in favour of the more hyped about lipsticks such as Velvet Teddy and Rub…
