Rimmel Scandaleyes Eye-shadow Stick in 'Teasing Turquoise'

I had a party this month which meant another chance for me to doll myself all up. I find that these occasions are when I most likely am to experiment with new products and looks. This time it was the Rimmel Scandaleyes Eye-shadow Stick in 'Teasing Turquoise'. 

The Rimmel Scandaleyes Eye-shadow Stick are advertised as being '24h/waterproof' which I could believe. I wore this for at least five hours with no signs of it budging. I still need to test if it's waterproof though. The formula is creamy, yet thick, which is most likely why it takes a lot for this to budge.

The turquoise is a deep vibrant colour that is not shiny; completely matte. The pigmentation is so strong that a few swipes is all it takes. It is a bright burst of colour that would be great as a pop on the lower waterline, or as a base for eye-shadow to go over. 

I don't have much experience with eye-shadow pencils, but the application was much smoother than I thought. The pencil format means that it is very simple and easy to apply. By just rubbing on some colour and blending out, you could have an instant eye look. 

Any other eye-shadow sticks out there that I should try out?

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. 

Totally Fabby MAC Lipstick!

I'm in the middle of shopping for new products; sort of preparing for the transition from winter to spring. Instead of picking up deep burgundies and warm chocolates, I have started to pick up pastel pinks and vanillas. I cannot wait of the warmer weather to roll in. 

MAC frost lipstick in the shade Fabby was one of those new seasonal additions I picked up recently. Fabby is a really muted rosy pink shade with a frost finish. The draw point, for me, is the frost sheen gives kind of a golden overlay to the lips. The golden tone just adds an extra dimension, and helps brighten up any makeup look. 

For being a frost finish, the colour pigmentation is quite opaque with a single swipe. The texture is not that creamy, and I don't mean that in a bad way. I'd describe it more as very similar to that of a MAC matte finish; creamy and not glossy.

I feel that Fabby is one of MACs more overlooked shades; passed over in favour of the more hyped about lipsticks such as Velvet Teddy and Rub…
