Be Still my Blushing Heart!

I keep hearing (and seeing) more and more from Makeup Revolution. It seems like every week they are bringing out a new product, or extending a range. Before November, I have never heard of the brand! I was severely behind on the times. I did a big haul during their Black Friday giveaway that I am slowly (keyword: SLOWLY) working my way through.

During the haul, I purchased a Blushing Heart blusher and the Goddess of Love highlighter (in a seperate post). I noticed the similarities between the Blushing Heart blusher from Makeup Revolution and the Sweethearts blush from Too Faced. The difference between the two was the major difference in price! I'm a super fan of blushes! There are just so many varieties and colours that I drift off to paradise just thinking about them.

The packaging is very visually appealing. It's a pink heart shaped box, with the details inscribed in a reflective purple foil. The base which the blush sits in is a slightly less shiny gold foil. The box is very cute and girly, which is partially what drew me to them.

They never had the extended range of shades back when I bought these, so I picked the Blushing Heart shade in the blusher. It is triple baked, and has three stripes of colour; two being shimmery and one having also micro glitter in it.  There is a dusty, plummy pink; a golden coral pink and a deeper raspberry pink. You can use each stripe individually, or swirl them together to great a unique shade.

This is available on the Makeup Revolution website, and also in selected stores if you are lucky enough to have a Makeup Revolution stand, for only £4.99. 

Anyone tried the new colour range? I really want to do a more up to date haul of their more recent products, but I keep having to remind myself that every penny saved, is another cent to spend when I get to Sephora!

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…
