Coveted MAC Cinderella

Here in Dundee, we were very fortunate to have a MAC counter opened up in our Debenhams beauty hall after the whole Cinderella collection had already been snapped up. Due to that, they received a whole shipment of the collection in on their first day in operation. I was too late to pick up any of the lip products, but managed to get my hands on this which I had also had my eye on.

The packaging is the prettiest packaging from MAC that I have ever bought. It is not the typical standard black box, but a very pretty cornflower blue colour. I find that if I shine it in the light then I can see a pink shimmer over the top.There are lines of shiny gold  all around the edges, as well as gold lettering. It's such an iconic packaging that no one will forget in a hurry. The fluidline pot follows the same theme as the outer packaging; a cornflower blue pot lid and 'Cinderella' inscribed in gold.

Little Black Bow is a warm grey tone. It has a metallic finish with tiny little sliver micro-glitter interspersed throughout. It is not completely opaque, which means that it has to be worn layered for full opacity. It is nice to be worn as an everyday colour, or when going out for a special occasion. I find that it gives a more subtle colour than black eye-liner, which is a bit harsher. The formula is a lot smoother than what I expected, and creamy without being oily. With it being so creamy I expected there to be some transfer, but it has amazing staying power.

Did you manage to snatch up any of the coveted Cinderella pieces back when they came out?

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…
