Holiday Makeup



I know lots of people have already done their version of this post since summer is nearing it's end, but I still have to go on holiday. I seem to have left my summer holiday until the last possible moment. 


Summer Holiday Makeup for on Travel to Florida

As I'm going to Florida, I have been given quite a high luggage allowance, but I plan on bringing back A LOT! This means that I have to be rather scrimping with what goes in as too much will leave little space to bring back. I probably still have too much!



Summer Holiday Face Makeup for on Travel to Florida

For my base I have bareMinerals Original Foundation because it's going to be hot and I'll have sun-cream on, a liquid foundation will just slide off. Maybelline Baby Skin Primer just in case I go anywhere in the evening and need my makeup to last that little bit longer, and Benefit Boi-ing as I'm prone to breakouts on holiday. The Urban Decay Eden Primer Potion in case I want to wear eye-shadow, which is not my norm on holiday but I might want to change things up. Rimmel Stay Matte Powder for touching up during the day; I'm doing all the theme parks so a lot of pictures will be taken. The Makeup Revolution Blushing Heart is a fantastic everyday blush that goes well with everything. My Essence 'how to make BROWS wow!' kit to fill in and tame my eyebrows.



Summer Holiday Eye Makeup for on Travel to Florida

For my eyes and lips I packed quite simply (for me!). The Rimmel Glam Eyes eyeliner as eyeliner only is my typical go to on holiday. My favourite Bourjois Volumizer Mascara as it is  two part system which can be worn separate; I can achieve defined lashes or thick volume from the same product. The Makeup Revolution Go! Palette was included as the highlighter and contour are absolutely divine, and on holiday I want super glowy skin. The Body Shop Plum Born Lippy to keep my lips moisturised, and the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in 'On and On Bronze' as an everyday all over eye colour!

I made sure that my brush collection was not too big; three for face and three for my eyes. Now one lip product may seen very limiting, but I plan on happily skipping off to Walmart and Walgreens pretty early on the trip, which gives me access to anything I forgot and/or want.

After listing all these I feel like this will still be quite a lot. I might decide to take out my Makeup Revolution Go! Palette and substitute it with the Makeup Revolution Goddess of Love Highlighter. Maybe I might also lose the Maybelline Baby Skin Primer as by nighttime I'm usually too exhausted and just chill at the hotel.

Too much or not enough? Let me know!

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…

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.
