Kleenex Shine Absorbing Sheets Review


These are my LIFESAVERS!!

When I'm in university for a long, grueling day, and it's been a while since I applied my make up, I find my face getting quite oily, especially in my T zone.

I bought theses at my local Home Bargains store, which for those who don't know, is a shop that sells brands for cheaper than regular retail price. I was looking in the beauty aisle, looking to burn some money when I spotted these. From reading lots of 'what's in my handbag' posts, I noticed that a lot of people carried oil blotting sheets. I decided there to get some and try them; it wasn't going to be a loss if they were no good. Two boxes were included in a pack, for like £0.79; BARGAIN!


Opening the box you can see that there are lots within one box. Each box is listed as having 50 sheets; I end up using 2-3 a day on my face (if I feel it needs it). There is a small sticky tab on the inside of the front flap which allows for a single sheet to be pulled out automatically; I have not found the need to use yet. The instructions tell you to swipe the plain side over ypur face, as it is the blotting side. Yet, the 'normal' side is so pretty with a floral, vine pattern on it.


Eeew, that's nasty. The blotting side turns a darker shade so that you don't unknowingly rub the oils back onto your face.

Overall, great product. It's definitely going to be a staple of my handbag now that I know about it. As it's so cheap I think I'll have to go and stock up :D

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…
