July Favourites

July Makeup Favourites: Body Shol Mango Hand Gel, Bourjois Volumizer Mascara, Sephora by Opi Hi Def, Benefit Boi-ing concealer, bareMinerals Moxie Lipgloss Hot shot

As always with the end of the month comes my July monthly favourites!  

The Body Shop Mango Hand Cleanse Gel
I love this stuff! I don't know how many times I have re-purchased this specific scent. It's fresh and sweet smelling without being too overpowering. I carry it around in my bag where ever I go. I have no doubt I'll be making a trip down to my local store to pick up some for my suitcase!

Sephora by OPI Nail Colour in Hi Def
Hi Def is a bright vivid orange colour which is the perfect summer shade! Here in Scotland the weather has been a bit abismal with rain and general overcast clouds, so this has been a bit of a cheer up to me.

Bourjois Volumizer Mascara
This is one of my current favourite masaras. It's a two step volumizer to give a 3D volume effect to your lashes. I just use the first step though as it separates and defines my lashes so perfectly.

Benefit Boi-ing
My ultimate concealer; no doubt! It covers all the blemishes and scarring on my face with such a full coverage,which i good because it is advertised as 'industrial strength'. I have hit pan in the middle so I'l have to be picking a new one up soon.

bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie in Hot Shot

I've been reaching more for lipglosses this month instead of lipsticks, and this is the top of the bunch. For being a lipgloss it has great pigmentation, and the minty smell is to die for

This is my last monthly favourites at the end of August for Florida. Between now and then I will be starting to schedule posts to upload during the period I'm away. This may mean that less content is published during August, but maybe not. It all depends on how organised I can be (not very!).

What's been your favourite products for the month of July?

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…
