The Perfect Flush?

When I think Benefit Cosmetics, I think first and foremost of Benetint. It is one of the companies best selling products. 

In case you don't quite know what Benetint is, let me give you the low down. 
Benetint is a bottle of lip and cheeks tint in a what appears to be a deep rose red colour. Both the product sample bottle and the full sized bottle remind me of a bottle of nail polish; with the little brush applicator.

It gives the cheeks and natural looking flush, similar to if you had just had your cheeks pinched. If used on the lips then, they get a subtle colour as if you have eaten red berries!

It's not quite as scary as I thought it would be! The formula of the product is a lot more sheer than it initially appeared in the bottle. I have found that if you want to intensify the product, its best to layer it up; making sure that it completely drys in between layers. 

I enjoy using tints, they have fantastic staying power, much longer than that of a usual everyday lipstick! The dual purpose of the tint, for use on cheeks and lips, make this a quick and easy product to use in a hurry or on a budget. But, you have to move quickly when blending it out on your cheeks otherwise it will stick however you brushed it on!

Benetint is available both online and at the Benefit counters for £24.50. There is also the matching Benebalm, Benetint coloured lip balm, available for £14.50.

What does everyone else think of the Benetint, or any Benefit coloured tint?

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!
