So Hard to Resist

I have had this little ditty in my possession for a couple of months now, and I love it so much that I just had to share it. It's become my everyday shade when I can't be bothered to make anymore effort than is actually necessary.

This is Illamasqua's Resist lipstick and it is amazing. I'd say that it is a muted rosy colour that is very pretty for everyday wear. It has such intense pigmentation that one swipe is all I need on my lips for full opacity. 

It is a super matte formula; think similar to Ruby Woo from Mac. I think that some other people might find the formula to be too drying, but I personally love it. If I do find it becoming a little to dry then a slick of lip balm will fix it. I can put it on and then like 8 - 9 hour later I'll look in a mirror and will still be there! I even once and a meal and it was still there! I think that it's great for if you know that you will not be able to touch up. 

If the Illamasqua lipstick in Resist seems like your cup of tea, then you can pick it up from Selfridges for £18.50.

Have you tried any of the Illamasqua lipsticks?

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.

Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!

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…
