Haulin' Haulin' Haulin'

I once again broke my spending ban...oops!

I recently developed a small dry patch on the skin just directly under my eye. I hadn't changed any of my normal, everyday products so I thought there was a possibility of it being my Benefit Boi-ing being the troublemaker. I've had it for roughly eight months so it has perhaps seen better days. This led to me deciding to try a new concealer and see if my condition changed.

Off I went to Superdrug, my highstreet drugstore of choice, and I couldn't resist the bargains going on the makeup. Rimmel was offering  that if you spent over £9 on their products then there would be a free bronzer included. Now, I originally went in for the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer which was £4.19. When I seen that the Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer was £5.99, I realised that for an extra couple of pound I could get another product plus the free bronzer; a better deal in my opinion! 

I also received a voucher for a 100 Superdrug Beautycard points with my next purchase of over £15. I splurged and got the Real Techniques Core Face collection. They were all I needed to complete the core collection, having purchased the Core Eyes collection at Christmas. I then received they same voucher back at the checkout for ANOTHER 100 points with a transaction over £15. I planning on saving that and using it for my travel essentials and sun-creams before American in August.

Now any shopping trip is not complete without a nosy around Poundland. I have found some really great deals on branded makeup in it that I consider it a worthwhile trip. I managed to get another few good deals this trip round, too! I purchased:

Barry M Dazzle Dust in 77 Neon Orange 
Maybelline Hyper Cosmos Eyeshadow in BE-1
Maybelline Hyper Glossy Eyeliner in BR-1
Maybelline Color Show Blush'em in 04 I love Pink!

All the Maybelline products were obviously released in Asia, as is what I think to be Japanese Kanji all over the products. This means my knowledge of them is limited. Though for £4, they could be in any language they desired!

I feel super accomplished after this haul, even though I feel disappointed that I broke my spending ban.

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!

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.
