January Favourites!


Hey guys!

It's the end of the month and that means it's time for....JANUARY'S FAVOURITES! Yes, here I will tell you all what I consider to be my favourite products for the month of January. Can you believe how fast this month has went? It's like time has been put on fast forward, which I'm not complaining about; get me closer to Florida and all! 

Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose
It's winter people, and as we all know chapped lips are everywhere! I found that lipsticks and glosses were just not cutting it in the bitter cold winds of Scotland. I have a tin of this everywhere; bags, pockets, drawers. I am so in love with the scent; it's so sweet and yummy smelling! It's quite thick, so it lasts a really long time too!


Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze
I bought this way back at the start of December, and I can safely say that it has changed my life. I use it either on it's own or as a base for eye-shadow. I find that it's great when I'm in a rush, to just apply with my finger and smudge out and harsh lines. When I use it as a base, then I find my eye-shadow lasts like over twelve hours! How insane is that?!


Essence How to Make Brows Wow!
This may be my favourite brow product ever (how blasphemous, I know!) This is another product that I got a while back and have not been able to stop using. I visited the Essence popup-shop in Glasgow, during the MTV Awards, and this was the only thing that I bought. The brunette shade matches me perfectly, and the highlighter...there are not even words to describe it. Combine this with mini tweezers, a small mirror, and a dual ended angle brush! I need to stock up for when this is finished. I've been using it everyday and have barely made a dent yet, as you only need so little.


Benefit Porefessional
Sad fact of the day: I started back at University two weeks ago :( With a combination of early starts and late nights I find that my makeup needs to last forever. Well, with this it does! I am still working my way through the small sample sized tube that I got in my advent calendar. A little does indeed go a long way! It's such a smooth formula and make my skin feel soooo soft afterwards.


Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Nail Polish in Shell Secrets
My nails have kind of fallen to the wayside recently. I haven't been putting too much effort into doing them. A few slicks of polish is about all that I can manage. This has been a rescue for me. It is such a pretty pale pink with an icy shimmer to it. It not only makes my nails tough, but sparkly as well.

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.
