Smothered in Chocolate

Lush! Lush! Lush! I do love me a good rummage around in Lush. I still consider myself quite a newbie when it comes to Lush products. I've really only tried their face masks: Cupcake and Catastrophe Cosmetic. I cannot say for sure what my favourite is, as I've only tried two.

The thought of smothering my face in chocolate was too tempting for me to deny any longer. When standing at the fresh mask stand, at the weekend, my eyes kept drifting back to the chocolate Cupcake goodness. One whiff and I was sold! That chocolaty minty goodness took me back to winter days with a mug of my favourite mint hot chocolate...mmm.


I couldn't wait to try this when I got it home. My initial thought was correct: that was great happiness to be found in plastering gooey chocolate all over my face. The temperature from the fridge made me feel very wide awake and refreshed. The mint that was in the mask soothed and calmed my sensitive skin. Looking at myself in the mirror once I'd finished, I got a fright. I looked like is smothered my face in something rather unpleasant, bit still the effect was very nice.

I felt like Cupcake took longer than Catastrophe Cosmetic to dry. I had to leave it for around half and hour for it to become touch dry. It was also slightly harder to take off. Where as Catastrophe Cosmetic just quite literally flaked and crumbled off the face, Cupcake had to be scrubbed thoroughly.

Catastrophe Cosmetic

This was my first Lush product EVER!! I had been suffering with really rad and unhappy skin during the lead up to Christmas time. There was also a large part of me that wanted to get into Lush products, I mean, everyone loves it!! I, however, can't stand the strong smell in the shop. It leads to a mucho big headache that evening. I  kinda have to know what I'm going for, get it and get out as quick as I can.

Catastrophe Cosmetic is very good to my sensitive skin, I found. The consistency was much lighter when I compare it to Cupcake. There are little chunks of blueberries throughout the mask, which I found really cool. Similar to Cupcake, the temperature from the fridge made me feel very wide awake and refreshed. It dried very quickly and just flaked off my skin with very minimal scrubbing.

The after affect for the both was still the same; a nice, bright and glowing face that felt smoother than it'd ever been!

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…
