Curl 'em with Benefit Roller Lash

I must admit it: I'm one of those people who who always jumping on the bandwagon of trying a new product. After all, how do you know if you'll like it if you don't try it. I enjoy trying new products, but as I'm the stereotypical poor student, I can't always afford to but the full priced product. When I heard that the February edition of Elle Magazine was to come out with a sample of Benefits new Roller Lash Mascara, I knew I had to have it. It isn't even available at the Benefit counters or on their website yet.

Roller Lash is the newest mascara form Benefit, the creators of the current worlds best mascara They're Real. it promises to give your lashes that dream worthy curl without the need to use eyelash curlers!

The sample packaging (because the packaging will differ with the full sized product) is very pretty: A black bottomed tube with the words 'Roller Lash' in cursive up the front in pink. The lid is a dusty rose pink colour,with an effect that is similar to metal.

The wand has got rubber bristles, which seem to have a curve effect. There are longer bristles on one side than there are on the other. There a tiny little hooks embedded in the bristles which makes it far easier to grab the eyelashes and curl them. 

I was so super excited to try this product, and I can now see why. My lashes are super defined and defined. All this with only one coat two. The colour is super ultra-black. 

My only problem is that the formula is slightly thick. I'd probably not use this as an everyday mascara due to my eyes looking slightly heavier and dark.

Benefit's Roller Lash will be launching at the end of February 2015 for £19.50.

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…
