Homemade Peppermint Lip Scrub!

From time to time I do enjoy a good crafty project. I've never got enough time for something really intricate, so I thought I'd do, quick lip scrub.

I decided to experiment with lip scrubs (due to an overabundance of sugar in my baking cupboard). My end result was a blue peppermint lip scrub, which looks pretty good from the picture above.

Peppermint Sugar Lip Scrub
 1/2 tsp Olive Oil
1/4 tsp Peppermint Essence
 50g Sugar
Blue gel colour
Small jar

In a small mixing bowl, pour the entirety of the sugar. Mix the oil and sugar together in the bowl until the mixture begin to bond together.  To the mixture add the peppermint essence. If you want a strong, minty hit in the scrub then just increase the amount of essence used. Add to the bowl a SMALL amount of the blue colouring and mix well, otherwise you will end up with little balls of colour in the scrub (an the gel is strong so you WILL end up staining your skin). Mix thoroughly in to make sure that all the ingredients are incorporated evenly. Scoop the mixture into a small pot (there are plenty available on eBay and Amazon). I saved my old jar from my Lush Bubblegum lip scrub, and just throughtly washed and dried it. You could then decorate to your heart's desire.

It smells so pretty and minty fresh; I'm surprised it turned out as well as it did. Hope you enjoy it. I need to find some more good recipes for these. If anyone has suggestions/recipes please send them my way!

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. 

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!
