Lucky, Lucky!

I love entering competitions, even though I rarely win anything. It's usually just me receiving free samples that I've ordered online. One of the things about me is that I am severely unlucky when it comes to competitions. 

Over all of last month I entered into the Emerald Street competitions, in conjunction with Marks and Spencers. There were many prizes to be won, to do with skincare and beauty. You just had to fill out a simple form with all the usual details, such as name and address. 

Imagine my surprise over the past couple of days when I received unknown packages through my door. 


The both of them were received at separate times, in plain brown, padded postage packets. Their packets also contained a typed notice from Emerald Street that congratulated the winners.



The first I received was this Crabtree & Evelyn moisturising hand cream. I use a lot of hand creams, especially in the winter months, so I very much enjoyed receiving this. Sometimes I find hand creams to be very oily and don't rub in well, but not this one. The floral smell is so soothing and calming. This retails on the Marks & Spensers website for £14 for the 100g. 


I was very excited with what I received in the post today. I don't own a lot of false eyelashes as they are not an everyday necessity, and I have many special occasions in which to wear them The last time I wore them was about five years ago when I performed in 'Crazy for You' which was very 'Broadway'. 

I have been considering buying some cheap pairs to have on hand just in case so these made me very happy. It is the Eyure Paris Lash Edit, containing #083, #101 and #100 (as well as lash glue). This retails for £13 on the Marks & Spenser website.

Anyone else been lucky enough to win any competitions recently?

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…

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.
