e.l.f Baked Eyeshadow Palette in Texas

I have just found out that the distributors of the e.l.f makeup range in the United Kingdom are moving on and no longer buying e.l.f. This means that they are currently selling off their stock at up to 70% off. This puts a sad light on what is to be my first review of a disappointing product.

The packaging is thick and very sturdy, but a normal matte black. There is a medium sized mirror in the lid that is very handy for if you want to take this palette on the go. There is no brush, however, which is rather odd. Most palettes these days come with some type of brush, even if it's just one of the dual ended sponge tips. 

I had always heard that baked eye-shadows were the best; that they gave off great pigmentation. Well for this palette, it is only half true. I feel like over half of the eye-shadows gave great pigmentation and the rest, namely the pale pink and champagne tone, were hard to work with. The only real way was to harshly scrub my finger tip in it, which caused major mess and half of the shadow to be wasted. So I tried them again, only this 
theme i damped my brush using MAC Fix+. Still nada! Absolutely no difference even when used wet.

 This palette makes me feel incredibly sad when I use it. I has sooo much potential but fails to deliver. I might perhaps pass it on to a family member is it is of no real use to me.

Anyone else bought this and found the same problem? Has anyone found a way around it?

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…
