The Holidays are Comin'

Oh my God!
Can we have a moment of appreciation for this fine specimen of beauty?
I have quite literally just placed myself on the waiting list for this at my local Debenhams store. I had heard about this last year form my cousin, who was so devastated that they had sold out before she could get herself one.
A couple of days ago I was casually browsing for Christmas goodies for my family and came across the advert on the Benefit website. My first thought was ‘I need me one of those badboys’, and my second was ‘OMG! £60? Not happening, look away now!’
So in the end I’ve decide to buy one as a sort or ‘pre-Christmas’ gift to myself (of-course). I’m 18th on the list and have to purchase it between the 1st and 2nd November, otherwise it will be sold on to the general public. It is a good thing because one of the makeup brands I have never branched into Is Benefit, and everyone seems to rave about it. It has a lot of variety so that will be a good way for me to try before I buy.
Look forward to the advent openings beginning from December 1st

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!

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…
